|Καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Καφαρναούμ. καὶ ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ γενόμενος ἐπηρώτα αὐτούς, Τί ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ διελογίζεσθὲ;
||And they came to Caper'na-um; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you discussing on the way?"||Who is the Greatest? Mk.9.33-37 | Mt.18.1-5 | Lk.9.46-48
|οἱ δὲ ἐσιώπων, πρὸς ἀλλήλους γὰρ διελέχθησαν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ τίς μείζων.
||But they were silent; for on the way they had discussed with one another who was the greatest.||
|καὶ καθίσας ἐφώνησεν τοὺς δώδεκα καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς, Εἴ τις θέλει πρῶτος εἶναι ἐσται πάντων ἐσχατος καὶ πάντων διάκονος.
||And he sat down and called the twelve; and he said to them, "If any one would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all."||
|καὶ λαβὼν παιδίον ἐστησεν αὐτὸ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐναγκαλισάμενος αὐτὸ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς,
||And he took a child, and put him in the midst of them; and taking him in his arms, he said to them,||
|Ὃς ἂν ἓν τῶν τοιούτων παιδίων δέξηται ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου, ἐμὲ δέχεται· καὶ ὃς ἂν ἐμὲ δέχηται, οὐκ ἐμὲ δέχεται ἀλλὰ τὸν ἀποστείλαντά με.
||"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me."||
