Mark 10:35; Mark 10:36–45

The Request of James and John

35 cAnd James and John, dthe sons of Zebedee, came up to him and said to him, Teacher, we want you to do for us ewhatever we ask of you.


36 And he said to them, fWhat do you want me to do for you? 37 And they said to him, Grant us gto sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, hin your glory. 38 Jesus said to them, iYou do not know what you are asking. Are you able jto drink the cup that I drink, or kto be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized? 39 And they said to him, We are able. And Jesus said to them, lThe cup that I drink myou will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, nyou will be baptized, 40 but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, obut it is for those for whom it has been pprepared. 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. 42 qAnd Jesus called them to him and said to them, You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles rlord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But sit shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,1 44 and whoever would be first among you must be tslave2 of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but uto serve, and vto give his life as a ransom for wmany.
