The Holy Bible - The Gospel According to Saint Matthew, Chapter 20 (Latin)
1For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
2And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
5Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
7They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
8So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
9And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
12Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
17And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
18Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,
19And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.
20Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
21And 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.
22But 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.
23And 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.
24And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.
25But 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.
26But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
27And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
28Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
29And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
30And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
31And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
32And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
33They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
34So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
1simile est enim regnum caelorum homini patri familias qui exiit primo mane conducere operarios in vineam suam
2conventione autem facta cum operariis ex denario diurno misit eos in vineam suam
3et egressus circa horam tertiam vidit alios stantes in foro otiosos
4et illis dixit ite et vos in vineam et quod iustum fuerit dabo vobis
5illi autem abierunt iterum autem exiit circa sextam et nonam horam et fecit similiter
6circa undecimam vero exiit et invenit alios stantes et dicit illis quid hic statis tota die otiosi
7dicunt ei quia nemo nos conduxit dicit illis ite et vos in vineam
8cum sero autem factum esset dicit dominus vineae procuratori suo voca operarios et redde illis mercedem incipiens a novissimis usque ad primos
9cum venissent ergo qui circa undecimam horam venerant acceperunt singulos denarios
10venientes autem et primi arbitrati sunt quod plus essent accepturi acceperunt autem et ipsi singulos denarios
11et accipientes murmurabant adversus patrem familias
12dicentes hii novissimi una hora fecerunt et pares illos nobis fecisti qui portavimus pondus diei et aestus
13at ille respondens uni eorum dixit amice non facio tibi iniuriam nonne ex denario convenisti mecum
14tolle quod tuum est et vade volo autem et huic novissimo dare sicut et tibi
15aut non licet mihi quod volo facere an oculus tuus nequam est quia ego bonus sum
16sic erunt novissimi primi et primi novissimi multi sunt enim vocati pauci autem electi
17et ascendens Iesus Hierosolymam adsumpsit duodecim discipulos secreto et ait illis
18ecce ascendimus Hierosolymam et Filius hominis tradetur principibus sacerdotum et scribis et condemnabunt eum morte
19et tradent eum gentibus ad deludendum et flagellandum et crucifigendum et tertia die resurget
20tunc accessit ad eum mater filiorum Zebedaei cum filiis suis adorans et petens aliquid ab eo
21qui dixit ei quid vis ait illi dic ut sedeant hii duo filii mei unus ad dexteram tuam et unus ad sinistram in regno tuo
22respondens autem Iesus dixit nescitis quid petatis potestis bibere calicem quem ego bibiturus sum dicunt ei possumus
23ait illis calicem quidem meum bibetis sedere autem ad dexteram meam et sinistram non est meum dare vobis sed quibus paratum est a Patre meo
24et audientes decem indignati sunt de duobus fratribus
25Iesus autem vocavit eos ad se et ait scitis quia principes gentium dominantur eorum et qui maiores sunt potestatem exercent in eos
26non ita erit inter vos sed quicumque voluerit inter vos maior fieri sit vester minister
27et qui voluerit inter vos primus esse erit vester servus
28sicut Filius hominis non venit ministrari sed ministrare et dare animam suam redemptionem pro multis
29et egredientibus eis ab Hiericho secuta est eum turba multa
30et ecce duo caeci sedentes secus viam audierunt quia Iesus transiret et clamaverunt dicentes Domine miserere nostri Fili David
31turba autem increpabat eos ut tacerent at illi magis clamabant dicentes Domine miserere nostri Fili David
32et stetit Iesus et vocavit eos et ait quid vultis ut faciam vobis
33dicunt illi Domine ut aperiantur oculi nostri
34misertus autem eorum Iesus tetigit oculos eorum et confestim viderunt et secuti sunt eum
