Luke 22:24-30 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

24 And strife was made among them, which of them should be seen to be greatest.

25 But he said to them, Kings of heathen men be lords of them, and they that have power on them be called good doers, [Forsooth he said to them, Kings of heathen men be lords, or lordship, of them, and they that have power upon them be called good doers,]

26 but ye not so; but he that is greatest among you, be made as a younger [be made as the younger], and he that is [a] before-goer, as a servant.

27 For who is greater, he that sitteth at the meat, or he that ministereth? whether not he that sitteth at the meat? And I am in the middle of you [Forsooth I am in the midst of you], as he that ministereth.

28 And ye [it] be, that have dwelled with me in my temptations; [Soothly ye it be that have dwelt with me in my temptations;]

29 and I assign to you, as my Father hath assigned to me, a realm, [and I dispose to you, as my Father hath disposed to me, a realm,]

30 that ye eat and drink on my board in my realm, and sit on thrones, and deem the twelve kindreds of Israel [deeming the twelve kindreds of Israel].

Luke 22:24-30 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

24 And there was a dispute among them, which of them should be taken for the greatest. 25 And he said to them, The kings of the Gentiles reign over them, and those who bear rule over them are called gracious lords. 26 But you shall not be like this. Rather, he who is greatest among you shall be as the youngest, and he who is chief shall be as the servant. 27 For who is greater: he who sits at food, or he that serves? Is it not he who sits at food? But I am among you as he that serves. 28 And you are those who have stayed with me in my trials. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father has appointed to me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit upon seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.

Luke 22:24-30 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

24 [a]And there arose also a strife among them, which of them should seem to be the greatest.

25 But he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles reign over them, and they that bear rule over them, are called [b]bountiful.

26 But ye shall not be so: but let the greatest among you be as the least: and the chiefest as he that serveth.

27 For who is greater, he that sitteth at table, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at table? And I am among you as he that serveth.

28 [c]And ye are they which have continued with me in my tentations.

29 Therefore I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me,

30 That ye may eat, and drink at my table, in my kingdom, and sit on seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.

24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. 25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. 26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. 27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. 28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30 that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
