17And when he was going out on his journey, a person ran up to him and kneeled and asked him, "Good teacher, what should I do in order that I might inherit life eternal?" 18But Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. 19You know the commandments: don’t murder, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t give false evidence, don’t defraud, honor you father and mother." 20And he said to him, "Teacher, all these things I have observed from my youth." 21And when Jesus looked at him, he loved him and said to him, "One thing you lack. Go, and all that you have, sell and give to those who are poor and you will have treasures in heaven. And come, follow me." 22And he became sad because of the word, and he went grieving, for he had many possessions.
23And after Jesus looked around, he said to his disciples, "How difficult it will it be for those who have wealth to enter into the Kingdom of God." 24And the disciples were amazed by his words. And again Jesus answered and said to them, "Children, how difficult it is to enter into the Kingdom of God. 25It is easier for a camel to go through a eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter into the Kingdom of God." 26But they were greatly astounded and said among themselves, "And who is able to be saved?" 27Jesus looked at them and said, "For people it’s impossible, but not for God. For all things are possible for God." 28Peter started to say to him, "See, we left everything and have followed you." 29Jesus said, "Amen I say to you, there is no one who has left houses or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for my sake and the sake of the good news, 30if no one receive hundredfold now in this age houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields with persecution, and in the age to come, life eternal. 31But many who are first will be last and the last first."
