For the kyngdome of heauen is lyke vnto a man, that is an householder, whiche went out earlye in the mornyng to hire labourers into his vineyarde.
And he agreed with the labourers for a peny a day, & sent them into his vineyarde.
And he went out about the thirde houre, and sawe other standyng idle in the market place,
And saide vnto them: Go ye also into ye vineyard, & whatsoeuer is right, I wyl geue you.
And they went their way.
Agayne, he went out about the sixth and nynth houre, and dyd lykewyse.
And about the eleuenth houre, he wet out, and founde other standyng idle, and saide vnto them: why stande ye here all the day idle?
They saye vnto him: because no man hath hyred vs.
He sayth vnto them: go ye also into the vineyarde, and whatsoeuer is ryght, that shall ye receaue.
So, when euen was come, the lorde of the vineyard sayth vnto his steward: Call the labourers, and geue them their hire, beginning at ye last, vntyll the first.
And when they came, that [were hired] about the eleuenth houre, they receaued euery man a peny.
But when the firste came also, they supposed that they shoulde haue receaued more: and they lykewyse receaued euery man a peny.
And when they had receaued it, they murmured against the good man of the house,
Saying: These laste haue wrought but one houre, & thou hast made them equall vnto vs, whiche haue borne the burthen and heate of the day.
But he aunswered to one of the, & said: Frende, I do thee no wrong: dyddest thou not agree with me for a peny?
Take that thyne is, and go thy way: I wyll geue vnto this last, euen as vnto thee.
Is it not lawfull for me, to do that I wyll with myne owne?
Is thyne eye euyll, because I am good?
So the last, shalbe the first, & the first [shalbe] last: For many be called, but fewe [be] chosen.
And Iesus, goyng vp to Hierusale, toke the twelue disciples asyde in the way, and sayde vnto them:
Beholde, we go vp to Hierusalem, and the sonne of man shalbe betrayed vnto the chiefe priestes, and vnto the scribes, and they shall condempne hym to death:
And shall deliuer him to the Gentiles to be mocked, and to be scourged, and to be crucified: and the thirde day, he shall ryse agayne.
Then came to hym the mother of Zebedees chyldren, with her sonnes, worshyppyng hym, and desiryng a certayne thyng of hym.
And he sayth vnto her: what wylt thou?
She saith vnto him: graunt, that these my two sonnes may syt, the one on thy ryght hande, and the other on the left, in thy kyngdome.
But Iesus aunswered, and saide: Ye wote not what ye aske.
Are ye able to drynke of the cuppe that I shall drynke of?
and to be baptized with the baptisme that I am baptized with?
They say vnto hym: we are able.
He sayth vnto them: Ye shall drynke in deede of my cuppe, and be baptized with the baptisme that I am baptized with: But to syt on my ryght hande, & on my lefte, is not myne to geue, but to them for whom it is prepared for of my father.
And when the ten hearde [this], they disdayned at the two brethren.
But Iesus called them vnto him, and sayde: Ye know that the princes of the gentiles haue dominion ouer them: and they that are great, exercise aucthoritie vpon them.
It shall not be so among you: But whosoeuer wyll be great among you, let hym be your minister:
And who so wyl be chiefe among you, let hym be your seruaunt.
Euen as the sonne of man came, not to be ministred vnto, but to minister, and to geue his lyfe a raunsome for many.
And as they departed from Hierico, much people folowed hym.
And behold, two blind men syttyng by the waye syde, when they hearde that Iesus passed by, they cryed, saying: O Lorde, thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercie on vs.
And the people rebuked them, because they should holde their peace.
But they cryed the more, saying: haue mercy on vs, O Lorde, thou sonne of Dauid.
And Iesus stode styll, & called them, and sayde: what wyll ye that I shall do vnto you?
They saye vnto hym?
Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
So Iesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediatly theyr eyes receaued syght.
And they folowed hym.
