NKJVNew King James Version
24#Mark 9:34; Luke 9:46–48Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. 25#(Matt. 20:25–28); Mark 10:42–45And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ 26#Matt. 20:26; (1 Pet. 5:3)But not so among you; on the contrary, #Luke 9:48he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves. 27#(Luke 12:37)For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet #Matt. 20:28; John 13:13, 14; Phil. 2:7I am among you as the One who serves.
28“But you are those who have continued with Me in #(Heb. 2:18; 4:15)My trials. 29And #Matt. 24:47I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, 30that #(Matt. 8:11; Rev. 19:9)you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, #Ps. 49:14; (Matt. 19:28; 1 Cor. 6:2; Rev. 3:21)and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
