24 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26 And they that heard

35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging: and hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. 38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me! And they which went before rebuked him that he should hold his peace : but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me!
40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near he asked him, " saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?
