17And as he was set­ting out on his jour­ney, a man ran up and knelt be­fore him, and asked him, "Good Teacher, what must I do to in­herit eter­nal life?" 18And Je­sus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 19You know the com­mand­ments: `Do not kill, Do not com­mit adul­tery, Do not steal, Do not bear false wit­ness, Do not de­fraud, Honor your fa­ther and mother.'" 20And he said to him, "Teacher, all these I have ob­served from my youth." 21And Je­sus look­ing upon him loved him, and said to him, "You lack one thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have trea­sure in heaven; and come, fol­low me." 22At that say­ing his coun­te­nance fell, and he went away sor­row­ful; for he had great pos­ses­sions. 23And Je­sus looked around and said to his dis­ci­ples, "How hard it will be for those who have riches to en­ter the king­dom of God!" 24And the dis­ci­ples were amazed at his words. But Je­sus said to them again, "Chil­dren, how hard it is to en­ter the king­dom of God! 25It is eas­ier for a camel to go through the eye of a nee­dle than for a rich man to en­ter the king­dom of God." 26And they were ex­ceed­ingly as­ton­ished, and said to him, "Then who can be saved?" 27Je­sus looked at them and said, "With men it is im­pos­si­ble, but not with God; for all things are pos­si­ble with God."
