one For the kingdom of heaven is like the master of the house, who went out early in the morning to hire workers in his vineyard
2 and having agreed with the workers on the denarius for a day, he sent them to his vineyard;
3 coming out at about three o’clock, he saw others standing idle on the market,
four and he said to them: Go also to my vineyard, and I will give you what follows. They went.
5 Having again left at about the sixth and ninth hour, he did the same.
6 Finally, going out at about eleven o'clock, he found others standing idly, and said to them: Why are you standing here all day idly?
7 They tell him: no one hired us. He says to them: Go also to my vineyard, and you will receive what follows.
8 When evening came, the lord of the vineyard said to his ruler: call the workers and give them a pay, starting from the last to the first.
9 And those who arrived around the eleventh hour received a denarius.
10 Those who arrived were the first to think that they would receive more, but they also received a denarius;
eleven and, having received, began to murmur against the master of the house
12 and they said: these last worked one hour, and you equalized them with us, having endured the burden of the day and the heat.
13 But he answered one of them: friend! I do not offend you; Do you agree with me for the denarius?
fourteen take yours and go; I want to give this last [same] as you;
fifteen am I not in my power to do what I want? or is your eye jealous that I am kind?
16 So the last will be the first, and the first last, for many are called, but few are chosen.

17 And going up to Jerusalem, Jesus on the road recalled the twelve disciples alone, and said to them:
eighteen behold, we ascend to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death;
19 and they will deliver him to the Gentiles for reproach and beating and crucifixion; and on the third day will rise again.

twenty Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Him with her sons, bowing and asking for something from Him.
21 He told her: what do you want? She says to Him: say that these two my sons sit with You, one on the right side, and the other on the left in Your Kingdom.
22 Jesus said in response: you do not know what you ask. Can you drink the cup that I will drink or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized? They say to him: we can.
23 And he said to them: You will drink My cup, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized, but let Me sit on my right and on the left — not from Me [depends], but to whom is prepared by My Father.
24 Hearing [these, other] ten [disciples] were indignant at two brothers.
25 Jesus, having called them, said: you know that the princes of the nations rule over them, and the nobles rule them;
26 but let it not be so between you: but whoever wants to be big between you, let him be your servant;
27 and whoever wants to be first between you, let him be your slave;
28 for the Son of Man did not [for that] come to be served, but to minister and give his soul for the redemption of many.

29th And when they left Jericho, many people followed him.
thirty And so, two blind men sitting on the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, began to shout: Lord have mercy on us, Son of David!
31 The people kept them silent; but they began to cry even louder: have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!
32 Jesus stopped, called them and said: what do you want from Me?
33 They say to him: Lord! to open our eyes.
34 Jesus, being merciful, touched their eyes; and immediately their eyes began to see, and they followed him.
