The parable of the labourers in the vineyard. The ambition of the two sons of Zebedee. Christ gives sight to two blind men.

[1] The kingdom of heaven is like to an householder, who went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
Simile est regnum caelorum homini patrifamilias, qui exiit primo mane conducere operarios in vineam suam.

[2] And having agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
Conventione autem facta cum operariis ex denario diurno, misit eos in vineam suam.

[3] And going out about the third hour, he saw others standing in the market place idle.
Et egressus circa horam tertiam, vidit alios stantes in foro otiosos,

[4] And he said to them: Go you also into my vineyard, and I will give you what shall be just.
et dixit illis : Ite et vos in vineam meam, et quod justum fuerit dabo vobis.

[5] And they went their way. And again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did in like manner.
Illi autem abierunt. Iterum autem exiit circa sextam et nonam horam : et fecit similiter.

[6] But about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing, and he saith to them: Why stand you here all the day idle?
Circa undecimam vero exiit, et invenit alios stantes, et dicit illis : Quid hic statis tota die otiosi?

[7] They say to him: Because no man hath hired us. He saith to them: Go you also into my vineyard.
Dicunt ei : Quia nemo nos conduxit. Dicit illis : Ite et vos in vineam meam.

[8] And when evening was come, the lord of the vineyard saith to his steward: Call the labourers and pay them their hire, beginning from the last even to the first.
Cum sero autem factum esset, dicit dominus vineae procuratori suo : Voca operarios, et redde illis mercedem incipiens a novissimis usque ad primos.

[9] When therefore they were come, that came about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
Cum venissent ergo qui circa undecimam horam venerant, acceperunt singulos denarios.

[10] But when the first also came, they thought that they should receive more: and they also received every man a penny.
Venientes autem et primi, arbitrati sunt quod plus essent accepturi : acceperunt autem et ipsi singulos denarios.

[11] And receiving it they murmured against the master of the house,
Et accipientes murmurabant adversus patremfamilias,

[12] Saying: These last have worked but one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us, that have borne the burden of the day and the heats.
dicentes : Hi novissimi una hora fecerunt, et pares illos nobis fecisti, qui portavimus pondus diei, et aestus.

[13] But he answering said to one of them: Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penny?
At ille respondens uni eorum, dixit : Amice, non facio tibi injuriam : nonne ex denario convenisti mecum?

[14] Take what is thine, and go thy way: I will also give to this last even as to thee.
Tolle quod tuum est, et vade : volo autem et huic novissimo dare sicut et tibi.

[15] Or, is it not lawful for me to do what I will? is thy eye evil, because I am good?
Aut non licet mihi quod volo, facere? an oculus tuus nequam est, quia ego bonus sum?

[16] So shall the last be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.
Sic erunt novissimi primi, et primi novissimi. Multi enim sunt vocati, pauci vero electi.

[17] And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart, and said to them:
Et ascendens Jesus Jerosolymam, assumpsit duodecim discipulos secreto, et ait illis :

[18] Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death.
Ecce ascendimus Jerosolymam, et Filius hominis tradetur principibus sacerdotum, et scribis, et condemnabunt eum morte,

[19] And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked, and scourged, and crucified, and the third day he shall rise again.
et tradent eum gentibus ad illudendum, et flagellandum, et crucifigendum, et tertia die resurget.

[20] Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, adoring and asking something of him.
Tunc accessit ad eum mater filiorum Zebedaei cum filiis suis, adorans et petens aliquid ab eo.

[21] Who said to her: What wilt thou? She saith to him: Say that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy kingdom.
Qui dixit ei : Quid vis? Ait illi : Dic ut sedeant hi duo filii mei, unus ad dexteram tuam, et unus ad sinistram in regno tuo.

[22] And Jesus answering, said: You know not what you ask. Can you drink the chalice that I shall drink? They say to him: We can.
Respondens autem Jesus, dixit : Nescitis quid petatis. Potestis bibere calicem, quem ego bibiturus sum? Dicunt ei : Possumus.

[23] He saith to them: My chalice indeed you shall drink; but to sit on my right or left hand, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared by my Father.
Ait illis : Calicem quidem meum bibetis : sedere autem ad dexteram meam vel sinistram non est meum dare vobis, sed quibus paratum est a Patre meo.

[24] And the ten hearing it, were moved with indignation against the two brethren.
Et audientes decem, indignati sunt de duobus fratribus.

[25] But Jesus called them to him, and said: You know that the princes of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they that are the greater, exercise power upon them.
Jesus autem vocavit eos ad se, et ait : Scitis quia principes gentium dominantur eorum : et qui majores sunt, potestatem exercent in eos.

[26] It shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be the greater among you, let him be your minister:
Non ita erit inter vos : sed quicumque voluerit inter vos major fieri, sit vester minister :

[27] And he that will be first among you, shall be your servant.
et qui voluerit inter vos primus esse, erit vester servus.

[28] Even as the Son of man is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a redemption for many.
Sicut Filius hominis non venit ministrari, sed ministrare, et dare animam suam redemptionem pro multis.

[29] And when they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
Et egredientibus illis ab Jericho, secuta est eum turba multa,

[30] And behold two blind men sitting by the way side, heard that Jesus passed by, and they cried out, saying: O Lord, thou son of David, have mercy on us.
et ecce duo caeci sedentes secus viam audierunt quia Jesus transiret : et clamaverunt, dicentes : Domine, miserere nostri, fili David.

[31] And the multitude rebuked them that they should hold their peace. But they cried out the more, saying: O Lord, thou son of David, have mercy on us.
Turba autem increpabat eos ut tacerent. At illi magis clamabant, dicentes : Domine, miserere nostri, fili David.

[32] And Jesus stood, and called them, and said: What will ye that I do to you?
Et stetit Jesus, et vocavit eos, et ait : Quid vultis ut faciam vobis?

[33] They say to him: Lord, that our eyes be opened.
Dicunt illi : Domine, ut aperiantur oculi nostri.

[34] And Jesus having compassion on them, touched their eyes. And immediately they saw, and followed him.
Misertus autem eorum Jesus, tetigit oculos eorum. Et confestim viderunt, et secuti sunt eum.
