Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:9 - I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:11 - Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:12 - For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:18 - “Which ones?” he inquired. Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:19 - honor your father and mother,’[fn] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:20 - “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:21 - Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 19:25 - When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”
