|Matthew 20:20-28. τότε προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ ἡ μήτηρ τῶν
υἱῶν ζεβεδαίου μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῆς προσκυνοῦσα καὶ αἰτοῦσά τι ἀπ' αὐτοῦ.
ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῇ, τί θέλεις; λέγει αὐτῷ, εἰπὲ ἵνα καθίσωσιν οὗτοι οἱ δύο
υἱοί μου εἷς ἐκ δεξιῶν σου καὶ εἷς ἐξ εὐωνύμων σου ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ σου.
ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, οὐκ οἴδατε τί αἰτεῖσθε: δύνασθε πιεῖν τὸ
ποτήριον ὃ ἐγὼ μέλλω πίνειν; λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, δυνάμεθα. λέγει αὐτοῖς, τὸ
μὲν ποτήριόν μου πίεσθε, τὸ δὲ καθίσαι ἐκ δεξιῶν μου καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων
οὐκ ἔστιν ἐμὸν [τοῦτο] δοῦναι, ἀλλ' οἷς ἡτοίμασται ὑπὸ τοῦ πατρός μου.
καὶ ἀκούσαντες οἱ δέκα ἠγανάκτησαν περὶ τῶν δύο ἀδελφῶν. ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς
προσκαλεσάμενος αὐτοὺς εἶπεν, οἴδατε ὅτι οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν ἐθνῶν κατακυριεύουσιν
αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ μεγάλοι κατεξουσιάζουσιν αὐτῶν. οὐχ οὕτως ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν:
ἀλλ' ὃς ἐὰν θέλῃ ἐν ὑμῖν μέγας γενέσθαι ἔσται ὑμῶν διάκονος, καὶ ὃς ἂν
θέλῃ ἐν ὑμῖν εἶναι πρῶτος ἔσται ὑμῶν δοῦλος: ὥσπερ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου
οὐκ ἦλθεν διακονηθῆναι ἀλλὰ διακονῆσαι καὶ δοῦναι τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ λύτρον
||Matthew 20:20-28. Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with
her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. And he
said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my
two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left,
in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are
ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with
the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. And
he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with
the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on
my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it
is prepared of my Father. And when the ten heard it, they were moved with
indignation against the two brethren. But Jesus called them unto him, and
said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them,
and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not
be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your
minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister,
and to give his life a ransom for many.
