Matthew 20
1After this Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to his disciples: “The Kingdom of heaven is like a certain individual, who was master in his house, who arose early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard”.
2“He hired them for one dinar a day and sent them into his vineyard”.
3“He went out at the third hour of the day and saw others standing idle in the market place”.
4“He said to them: ‘Go, also you, into my vineyard and that which is suitable I will give to you’.
5“So they went. Then he came out again at noon and also at the ninth hour and did the same”.
6“At the eleventh hour he went out also and found others standing and he said to them: ‘Why do you stand idle all day?’
7“They answered him: ‘No man has hired us’. So he said to them: ‘Go, also, you into my vineyard’.
8“It came to pass at evening, the master of the vineyard said to the officer over the laborers: ‘Call them that I might give to them their wages’. He began with the last and finished with the first”.
9“The last received one dinar”.
10“So the first thought they would receive more, but he gave only a dinar to each of them”.
11“Then the first murmured against the master of the vineyard
12“saying: ‘These last worked one hour and you have made them like us who have worked all day and in the heat’.
13“He answered one of them and said to him: ‘My friend, I have done you no injustice. Did I not hire you for one dinar?’
14‘Take it and go. If I wish to give this last like you’
15‘may I not do according to my desire? Is there evil in your eyes when I am good?’
16“So the last shall be first and the first last. Many are called but few are chosen”.
17Yeshua [God is Salvation] drew near to Yerushalayim [abode of peace] and took his twelve disciples and secretly said to them:
18“Behold we are going up to Yerushalayim [abode of peace] and the Son of Man will be delivered over unto the chief priests and Torah-teachers (Scribes) and they will condemn him to death”.
19“Also they will deliver him to the Goyim [Gentiles] to mock and scourge and crucify him, but on the third day he will arise”.
20Then came the wife of Zavdai [Yah has bestowed] with her sons, bowing down and making a request from him.
21He said to her: “What do you wish?” She said: ‘That you command these my two sons to sit the one on your right and the other on your left in your Kingdom’.
22Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered them: “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to endure the suffering and death that I am going to endure?”. They said: ‘We are able’.
23Then he said to them: “Drink my cup, but that you should sit on my left or my right is not for me to grant to you but to the one who is prepared before by my Father”
24The ten heard and it was a matter of anger, in their eyes, in regard to the two brothers.
25Yeshua [God is Salvation] brought them near to him and said to them: “Know that the princes of the Goyim [Gentiles] have dominion over them and their great ones seek to subdue them”.
26“It will not be so among you, because he who wishes to be great among you will serve you”.
27“He who among you who wishes to be first will be your slave”,
28“just as the Son of Man did not come that they might serve him, but that he might serve and give himself as a ransom for many”.
29They entered into Jericho and a crowd followed him.
30Behold two blind men came out beside the road. They heard the noise of the multitude and asked what this might be. It was said to them: ‘The Prophet Yeshua [God is Salvation] from Natsrat is coming’. Then they cried out saying: ‘Son of David [Beloved], have mercy on us’.
31But the crowd rebuked them saying: “Be silent”; they nevertheless were crying out saying: ‘Adon [Lord - Kurios of the Earth], Son of David [Beloved], have mercy on us’.
32So Yeshua [God is Salvation] ‘stopped, called them and said: “What do you want me to do for you?’”
33They said: ‘Adon [Lord - Kurios of the Earth], that our eyes might be opened’.
34Yeshua [God is Salvation] had pity on them, touched their eyes and said to them: “Your faith has healed you”. Immediately they saw, praised The Mighty One, and followed him. Then all the people praised The Mighty One, because of this.
