Matthew 19:16-22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

16 And lo! one came, and said to him, Good master, what good [thing] shall I do, that I have everlasting life?

17 Which saith to him, What askest thou me of good thing? There is one good God [Which said to him, What askest thou me of good thing? One is good God]. But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith to him, Which? And Jesus said, Thou shalt not do manslaying, thou shalt not do adultery, thou shalt not do theft, thou shalt not say false witnessing;

19 worship thy father and thy mother [honour thou thy father and thy mother], and, thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

20 The young man saith to him, I have kept all these things from my youth, what yet faileth to me?

21 Jesus saith to him, If thou wilt be perfect, go, and sell all things that thou hast, and give to poor men, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, and follow me.

22 And when the young man had heard these words, he went away sorrowful, for he had many possessions.

Matthew 19:16-22 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

16 And a man came and said to Jesus, Good Teacher, what good thing should I do so that I may have eternal life? 17 He said to him, Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, and that is God. But if you would enter into life, keep the commandments. 18 The other asked him, Which? And Jesus said, Break no wedlock. Do not kill. Do not steal. Do not bear false witness. 19 Honour father and mother. And love your neighbour as yourself.

20 The young man said to him, I have observed all these things from my youth. What do I yet lack? 21 And Jesus said to him, If you would be perfect, go and sell what you have, and give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, and follow me.

22 When the young man heard these words, he went away grieved, for he had great wealth.

16 [a]And behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why called thou me good? there is none good but one, even God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the Commandments.
