1 The word of the LORD came to me: 2Mortal, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD:
Because your heart is proud
   and you have said, 'I am a god;
I sit in the seat of the gods,
   in the heart of the seas',
yet you are but a mortal, and no god,
   though you compare your mind
   with the mind of a god.
3You are indeed wiser than Daniel;
   no secret is hidden from you;
4by your wisdom and your understanding
   you have amassed wealth for yourself,
and have gathered gold and silver
   into your treasuries.
5By your great wisdom in trade
   you have increased your wealth,
   and your heart has become proud in your wealth.
6Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD:
Because you compare your mind
   with the mind of a god,
7therefore, I will bring strangers against you,
   the most terrible of the nations;
they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom
   and defile your splendour.
8They shall thrust you down to the Pit,
   and you shall die a violent death
   in the heart of the seas.
9Will you still say, 'I am a god',
   in the presence of those who kill you,
though you are but a mortal, and no god,
   in the hands of those who wound you?
10You shall die the death of the uncircumcised
   by the hand of foreigners;
   for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD.

 
 

23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, 'Truly I tell you, it will be hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.' 25When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astounded and said, 'Then who can be saved?' 26But Jesus looked at them and said, 'For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.'

27 Then Peter said in reply, 'Look, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?' 28Jesus said to them, 'Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man is seated on the throne of his glory, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields, for my name's sake, will receive a hundredfold, and will inherit eternal life. 30But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.
