1"FOR the kingdom of Heaven is like a householder going out early in the morning to hire labourers for his vineyard.

2He agreed with them on a wage of a silver coin a day and sent them to work.

3About nine o'clock he went and saw some others standing about in the marketplace with nothing to do.

4'You go to the vineyard too,' he said to them, 'and I will pay you a fair wage.' And off they went.

5At about midday and again at about three o'clock in the afternoon he went out and did the same thing.

6Then about five o'clock he went out and found some others standing about. 'Why are you standing about here all day doing nothing?' he asked them.

7'Because no one has employed us,' they replied. 'You go off into the vineyard as well, then,' he said.

8"When evening came, the owner said to his foreman, 'Call the labourers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last and ending with the first.'

9So those who were engaged at five o'clock came up and each man received a silver coin.

10But when the first to be employed came they reckoned they would get more; yet they also received a sliver coin each.

11As they took their money they grumbled at the householder

12and said, 'These last fellows have only put in one hour's work and you've treated them exactly the same as us who have gone through all the hard work and heat of the day!'

13"But he replied to one of them, 'My friend, I'm not being unjust to you. Wasn't our agreement for a silver coin a day?

14Take your money and go home. It is my wish to give the latecomers as much as I give you.

15May I not do what I like with what belongs to me? Must you be jealous because I am generous?'

16"So, many who are the last now will be first then and the first last."

17Then, as he was on his way up to Jerusalem, Jesus took the twelve disciples aside and spoke to them as they walked along.

18"Listen, we are now going up to Jerusalem and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribesand they will condemn him to death.

19They will hand him over to the heathen to ridicule and flog and crucify. And on the third day he will be raised again!"

20At this point the mother of the sons of Zebedee arrived with her sons and knelt in front of Jesus to ask him a favor.

21"What is it you want?" he asked her. "Please say that these two sons of mine may sit one on each side of you when you are king!" she said.

22"You don't know what it is you are asking," replied Jesus. "Can you two drink what I have to drink?" "Yes, we can," they answered.

23"Ah, you will indeed 'drink my drink',"Jesus told them, "But as for sitting on either side of me, that is not for me to grantthat is reserved for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father."

24When the other ten heard of this incident they were highly indignant with the two brothers.

25But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the heathen lord it over them and that their great ones have absolute power?

26But it must not be so among you. No, whoever among you wants to be great must become your servant,

27and if he wants to be first among you he must be your slave

28just as the Son of Man has not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life to set many others free."

29A great crowd followed them as they were leaving Jericho,

30and two blind men who were sitting by the roadside, hearing that it was Jesus who was passing, cried out, "Have pity on us, Lord, you Son of David!"

31The crowd told them sharply to be quiet, but this only made them cry out more loudly still, "Have pity on us, Lord, you Son of David!"

32Jesus stood quite still and called out to them, "What do you want me to do for you?"

33"Lord, let us see again!"

34And Jesus, deeply moved with pity, touched their eyes. At once their sight was restored, and they followed him.
