American Standard Version
20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I observed: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go, sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. 22 But when the young man heard the saying, he went away sorrowful; for he was one that had great possessions.
23 And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.Read full chapter

23 And Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I say to you, (C)it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I say to you, (D)it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”Read full chapter
