At ille respondens, dixit eis : Quid vobis praecepit Moyses?
 Who said: Moses permitted to write a bill of divorce, and to put her away.
Qui dixerunt : Moyses permisit libellum repudii scribere, et dimittere.
 To whom Jesus answering, said: Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you that precept.
Quibus respondens Jesus, ait : Ad duritiam cordis vestri scripsit vobis praeceptum istud :
 But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female.
ab initio autem creaturae masculum et feminam fecit eos Deus.
 For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife.
Propter hoc relinquet homo patrem suum et matrem, et adhaerebit ad uxorem suam :
 And they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh.
et erunt duo in carne una. Itaque jam non sunt duo, sed una caro.

Quod ergo Deus conjunxit, homo non separet.

 And they brought to him young children, that he might touch them. And the disciples rebuked them that brought them.

 Whom when Jesus saw, he was much displeased, and saith to them: Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God.
Quos cum videret Jesus, indigne tulit, et ait illis : Sinite parvulos venire ad me, et ne prohibueritis eos : talium enim est regnum Dei.

 And Jesus said to him, Why callest thou me good? None is good but one, that is God.
Jesus autem dixit ei : Quid me dicis bonum? nemo bonus, nisi unus Deus.

 Who being struck sad at that saying, went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
Qui contristatus in verbo, abiit moerens : erat enim habens multas possessiones.
 And Jesus looking round about, saith to his disciples: How hardly shall they that have riches, enter into the kingdom of God!
Et circumspiciens Jesus, ait discipulis suis : Quam difficile qui pecunias habent, in regnum Dei introibunt!
 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus again answering, saith to them: Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God?
Discipuli autem obstupescebant in verbis ejus. At Jesus rursus respondens ait illis : Filioli, quam difficile est, confidentes in pecuniis, in regnum Dei introire!

 Who wondered the more, saying among themselves: Who then can be saved?
Qui magis admirabantur, dicentes ad semetipsos : Et quis potest salvus fieri?

Respondens Jesus, ait : Amen dico vobis : Nemo est qui reliquerit domum, aut fratres, aut sorores, aut patrem, aut matrem, aut filios, aut agros propter me et propter Evangelium,
 Who shall not receive an hundred times as much, now in this time; houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions: and in the world to come life everlasting.
qui non accipiat centies tantum, nunc in tempore hoc : domos, et fratres, et sorores, et matres, et filios, et agros, cum persecutionibus, et in saeculo futuro vitam aeternam.
 But many that are first, shall be last: and the last, first.
Multi autem erunt primi novissimi, et novissimi primi.
 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem: and Jesus went before them, and they were astonished; and following were afraid. And taking again the twelve, he began to tell them the things that should befall him.

 And they shall mock him, and spit on him, and scourge him, and kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
et illudent ei, et conspuent eum, et flagellabunt eum, et interficient eum : et tertia die resurget.
 And James and John the sons of Zebedee, come to him, saying: Master, we desire that whatsoever we shall ask, thou wouldst do it for us:
Et accedunt ad eum Jacobus et Joannes filii Zebedaei, dicentes : Magister, volumus ut quodcumque petierimus, facias nobis.
 But he said to them: What would you that I should do for you?
At ille dixit eis : Quid vultis ut faciam vobis?
 And they said: Grant to us, that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
Et dixerunt : Da nobis ut unus ad dexteram tuam, et alius ad sinistram tuam sedeamus in gloria tua.
 And Jesus said to them: You know not what you ask. Can you drink of the chalice that I drink of: or be baptized with the baptism wherewith I am baptized?
Jesus autem ait eis : Nescitis quid petatis : potestis bibere calicem, quem ego bibo, aut baptismo, quo ego baptizor, baptizari?
 But they said to him: We can. And Jesus saith to them: You shall indeed drink of the chalice that I drink of: and with the baptism wherewith I am baptized, you shall be baptized.
At illi dixerunt ei : Possumus. Jesus autem ait eis : Calicem quidem, quem ego bibo, bibetis; et baptismo, quo ego baptizor, baptizabimini :
 But to sit on my right hand, or on my left, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared.
sedere autem ad dexteram meam, vel ad sinistram, non est meum dare vobis, sed quibus paratum est.
 And the ten hearing it, began to be much displeased at James and John.
Et audientes decem, coeperunt indignari de Jacobo et Joanne.
 But Jesus calling them, saith to them: You know that they who seem to rule over the Gentiles, lord it over them: and their princes have power over them.
Jesus autem vocans eos, ait illis : Scitis quia hi, qui videntur principari gentibus, dominantur eis : et principes eorum potestatem habent ipsorum.
 But it is not so among you: but whosoever will be greater, shall be your minister.
Non ita est autem in vobis, sed quicumque voluerit fieri major, erit vester minister :
 And whosoever will be first among you, shall be the servant of all.
et quicumque voluerit in vobis primus esse, erit omnium servus.
 For the Son of man also is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a redemption for many.
Nam et Filius hominis non venit ut ministraretur ei, sed ut ministraret, et daret animam suam redemptionem pro multis.
 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho, with his disciples, and a very great multitude, Bartimeus the blind man, the son of Timeus, sat by the way side begging.

 Who casting off his garment leaped up, and came to him.
Qui projecto vestimento suo exiliens, venit ad eum.

Et respondens Jesus dixit illi : Quid tibi vis faciam? Caecus autem dixit ei : Rabboni, ut videam.
 And Jesus saith to him: Go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he saw, and followed him in the way.
Jesus autem ait illi : Vade, fides tua te salvum fecit. Et confestim vidit, et sequebatur eum in via.
