| 35 | 36 | 37 | 38 | 39 | 40 | 41 | 42 | 43 | 44 | 45 |

10:35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, go to him ...
  they say to him ... Teacher!
  We wish that whatever we ask, you do for us.
10:36 And he said to them ... What you want of me, I will do for you.
10:37 And they said ... Grant us that, one out of your right and one out left, we may sit in your glory.
10:38 But Jesus said to them ... You have not perceived what you ask.
  Are you able to drink the "cup" which I drink?
  Or the "immersion" which I am immersed?
10:39 And they said to him ... We can.
  And the Jesus said to them ...
  The cup which I drink ... you will drink ...
  and the "immersion" which I am immersed ...
  you will be immersed.
10:40 But to sit out right of me or out left is not mine to grant ...
  but for the ones it has been prepared.
10:41 And having heard (of it) ...
  the ten begin to be resentful about James and John.
10:42 And having called them before him, Jesus says to them ...
  You have perceived that the ones seeming to rule the nations are down-lording on them ...
  and their "great ones" put authority down on them.
10:43 However it is not so in you ...
  But who ever wishes to become "great" in you ...
  He must be your "slave."
10:44 And who ever in you wishes to be "first" ...
  he must be a "slave of all."
10:45 For even the "son of man" did not come to be served ...
  but to serve ...
  And to give his "soul" ...
  As a "ransom" on behalf of many.
