Christ, by the similitude of the labourers in the vineyard, sheweth that God is debtor unto no man:
Matthew 20:1 For the kingdom of the heavens, is like, a man, a householder,who went forth with the morning, to hire labourers into his vineyard; Matthew 20:2 and, when he had agreed with the labourers for a denary the day, he sent them into his vineyard. Matthew 20:3 And, going forth about the third hour, he saw others, standing in the market-place, unemployed; Matthew 20:4 and, to them, he saidye also, go your way into the vineyard, and, whatsoever may be right, I will give you; Matthew 20:5 and, they, departed. And, again, going forth about the sixth and ninth hour, he did likewise. Matthew 20:6 And, about the eleventh, going forth, he found others, standing, and saith unto themWhy, here, stand ye, all the day, unemployed? Matthew 20:7 They say unto himBecause, no one, hath hired, us. He saith unto themYe also, go your way into the vineyard. Matthew 20:8 And, when evening came, the master of the vineyard saith unto his stewardCall the labourers, and pay the hire,beginning from the last, unto the first. Matthew 20:9 And they of the eleventh hour, coming, received severally a denary. Matthew 20:10 And, when the first came, they supposed that, more, they should receive,and, they also, received severally a denary. Matthew 20:11 And, having received it, they began to murmur against the householder, saying Matthew 20:12 These last, one hour, wrought, and thou hast made them, equal unto us, who have borne the burden of the day, and the scorching heat. Matthew 20:13 And, he, answering, unto one of them, said,Friend! I wrong thee not: Was it not, for a denary, thou didst agree with me? Matthew 20:14 Take thine own, and go thy way; but I please, unto this last, to give, as also to thee: Matthew 20:15 Is it not allowed me to do, what I please, with my own? or is, thine eye, evil, because I good? Matthew 20:16 Thus, shall beThe last first, and the first last.
foretelleth his passion:
Matthew 20:17 And, Jesus, being about to go up unto Jerusalem, took unto him the twelve [disciples], apart, and, in the way, he said unto them Matthew 20:18 Lo! we are going up unto Jerusalem; and, the Son of Man, will be delivered up unto the chief-priests and Scribes, and they will condemn him, [to death], Matthew 20:19 And deliver him up unto the nations, to mock and to scourge and to crucify,and, on the third day, he will, arise.
by answering the mother of Zebedee's children, teacheth his disciples to be lowly:
Matthew 20:20 Then came unto him the mother of the sons of Zebedee, with her sons, bowing down, and asking something from him. Matthew 20:21 And, he, said to herWhat desirest thou? She saith unto himBid, that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left, in thy kingdom. Matthew 20:22 But Jesus, answering, saidYe know not what ye are asking: Are ye able to drink the cup, which, I, am about to drink; They say unto himWe are able. Matthew 20:23 He saith unto themMy cup, indeed, ye shall drink; but, to sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine to give,except unto those for whom it hath been prepared by my Father. Matthew 20:24 And the ten, hearing, were sorely displeased, concerning the two brethren. Matthew 20:25 But, Jesus, calling them near, saidYe know that, the rulers of the nations, lord it over them, and, the great ones, wield authority over them: Matthew 20:26 Not so, is it, among you,but, whosoever shall desire, among you, to become, great, shall be, your minister; Matthew 20:27 And, whosoever shall desire, among you, to be first, shall be, your servant: Matthew 20:28 Just as, the Son of Man, came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom instead of many. Matthew 20:29 And, as they were going forth from Jericho, there followed him a great multitude;
and giveth two blind men their sight.
Matthew 20:30 and lo! two blind men, sitting beside the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried aloud sayingLord! have mercy on us! Son of David! Matthew 20:31 But the multitude rebuked them, that they might hold their peace. But, they, the more, cried aloud, sayingLord, have mercy on us! Son of David! Matthew 20:32 And, standing still, Jesus called them, and saidWhat desire ye I should do for you? Matthew 20:33 They say unto himLord! that, our eyes, may open. Matthew 20:34 And, moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes,and, straightway, they recovered sight, and followed him.
