Matthew 20:21-23 Living Bible (TLB)

21 “What is your request?” he asked. She replied, “In your Kingdom, will you let my two sons sit on two thrones[a] next to yours?”

22 But Jesus told her, “You don’t know what you are asking!” Then he turned to James and John and asked them, “Are you able to drink from the terrible cup I am about to drink from?”

“Yes,” they replied, “we are able!”

23 “You shall indeed drink from it,” he told them. “But I have no right to say who will sit on the thrones next to mine. Those places are reserved for the persons my Father selects.”
