ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΘΘΑΙΟΝ

Matthew

Reference
1Ὁμοία γάρ ἐστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν ἀνθρώπῳ οἰκοδεσπότῃ ὁστις ἐξῆλθεν ἀμα πρωῒ μισθώσασθαι ἐργάτας εἰς τὸν ἀμπελῶνα αὐτοῦ· 'The kingdom of Heaven is like this. There was once a landowner who went out early one morning to hire labourers for his vineyard;The Workers in the Vineyard Mt.20.1-16
2συμφωνήσας δὲ μετὰ τῶν ἐργατῶν ἐκ δηναρίου τὴν ἡμέραν ἀπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν ἀμπελῶνα αὐτοῦ. and after agreeing to pay them the usual day's wage he sent them off to work. 
3καὶ ἐξελθὼν περὶ τρίτην ὡραν εἶδεν ἀλλους ἑστῶτας ἐν τῇ ἀγορᾷ ἀργούς· Going out three hours later he saw some more men standing idle in the market-place. 
4καὶ ἐκείνοις εἶπεν, Ὑπάγετε καὶ ὑμεῖς εἰς τὸν ἀμπελῶνα, καὶ ὃ ἐὰν ᾖ δίκαιον δώσω ὑμῖν. "Go and join the others in the vineyard," he said, "and I will pay you a fair wage"; so off they went. 
5οἱ δὲ ἀπῆλθον. πάλιν [δὲ] ἐξελθὼν περὶ ἑκτην καὶ ἐνάτην ὡραν ἐποίησεν ὡσαύτως. At noon he went out again, and at three in the afternoon, and made the same arrangement as before. 
6περὶ δὲ τὴν ἑνδεκάτην ἐξελθὼν εὗρεν ἀλλους ἑστῶτας, καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς, Τί ὧδε ἑστήκατε ὁλην τὴν ἡμέραν ἀργοί; An hour before sunset he went out and found another group standing there; so he said to them, "Why are you standing about like this all day with nothing to do?" 
7λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, Ὅτι οὐδεὶς ἡμᾶς ἐμισθώσατο. λέγει αὐτοῖς, Ὑπάγετε καὶ ὑμεῖς εἰς τὸν ἀμπελῶνα. "Because no one has hired us", they replied; so he told them, "Go and join the others in the vineyard." 
8ὀψίας δὲ γενομένης λέγει ὁ κύριος τοῦ ἀμπελῶνος τῷ ἐπιτρόπῳ αὐτοῦ, Κάλεσον τοὺς ἐργάτας καὶ ἀπόδος αὐτοῖς τὸν μισθὸν ἀρξάμενος ἀπὸ τῶν ἐσχάτων ἑως τῶν πρώτων. When evening fell, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, "Call the labourers and give them their pay, beginning with those who came last and ending with the first." 
9καὶ ἐλθόντες οἱ περὶ τὴν ἑνδεκάτην ὡραν ἐλαβον ἀνὰ δηνάριον. Those who had started work an hour before sunset came forward, and were paid the full day's wage. 
10καὶ ἐλθόντες οἱ πρῶτοι ἐνόμισαν ὅτι πλεῖον λήμψονται· καὶ ἐλαβον [τὸ] ἀνὰ δηνάριον καὶ αὐτοί. When it was the turn of the men who had come first, they expected something extra, but were paid the same amount as the others. 
11λαβόντες δὲ ἐγόγγυζον κατὰ τοῦ οἰκοδεσπότου As they took it, they grumbled at their employer: 
12λέγοντες, Οὗτοι οἱ ἐσχατοι μίαν ὡραν ἐποίησαν, καὶ ἰσους ἡμῖν αὐτοὺς ἐποίησας τοῖς βαστάσασι τὸ βάρος τῆς ἡμέρας καὶ τὸν καύσωνα. "These late-comers have done only one hour's work, yet you have put them on a level with us, who have sweated the whole day long in the blazing sun!" 
13ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς ἑνὶ αὐτῶν εἶπεν, Ἑταῖρε, οὐκ ἀδικῶ σε· οὐχὶ δηναρίου συνεφώνησάς μοὶ; The owner turned to one of them and said, "My friend, I am not being unfair to you. You agreed on the usual wage for the day, did you not? 
14ἆρον τὸ σὸν καὶ ὑπαγε· θέλω δὲ τούτῳ τῷ ἐσχάτῳ δοῦναι ὡς καὶ σοί. Take your pay and go home. I choose to pay the last man the same as you. 
15[ἢ] οὐκ ἐξεστίν μοι ὃ θέλω ποιῆσαι ἐν τοῖς ἐμοῖς; ἢ ὁ ὀφθαλμός σου πονηρός ἐστιν ὅτι ἐγὼ ἀγαθός εἰμὶ; Surely I am free to do what I like with my own money. Why be jealous because I am kind?" 
16Οὑτως ἐσονται οἱ ἐσχατοι πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ πρῶτοι ἐσχατοι. Thus will the last be first, and the first last.'
 
17Καὶ ἀναβαίνων ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα παρέλαβεν τοὺς δώδεκα [μαθητὰς] κατ' ἰδίαν, καὶ ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, JESUS WAS JOURNEYING towards Jerusalem, and on the way he took the Twelve aside, and said to them,A Third Time Jesus foretells His Death and Resurrection Mt.20.17-19 | Mk.10.32-34 | Lk.18.31-34
18Ἰδοὺ ἀναβαίνομεν εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα, καὶ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου παραδοθήσεται τοῖς ἀρχιερεῦσιν καὶ γραμματεῦσιν, καὶ κατακρινοῦσιν αὐτὸν θανάτῳ, 'We are going to Jerusalem, and the is Son of Man will be given up to the chief priests and the doctors of the law; they will condemn him to death 
19καὶ παραδώσουσιν αὐτὸν τοῖς ἐθνεσιν εἰς τὸ ἐμπαῖξαι καὶ μαστιγῶσαι καὶ σταυρῶσαι, καὶ τῇ τρίτῃ ἡμέρᾳ ἐγερθήσεται. and hand him over to the foreign power, to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and on the third day he will be raised to life again.'
 
20Τότε προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ ἡ μήτηρ τῶν υἱῶν Ζεβεδαίου μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῆς προσκυνοῦσα καὶ αἰτοῦσά τι ἀπ' αὐτοῦ. The mother of Zebedee's sons then came before him, with her sons. She bowed low and begged a favour.The Request of James and John Mt.20.20-28 | Mk.10.35-45
21ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῇ, Τί θέλεις; λέγει αὐτῷ, Εἰπὲ ἵνα καθίσωσιν οὗτοι οἱ δύο υἱοί μου εἷς ἐκ δεξιῶν σου καὶ εἷς ἐξ εὐωνύμων σου ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ σου. 'What is it you wish?' asked Jesus. 'I want you', she said, 'to give orders that in your kingdom my two sons here may sit next to you, one at your right, and the other at your left.' 
22ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, Οὐκ οἰδατε τί αἰτεῖσθε· δύνασθε πιεῖν τὸ ποτήριον ὃ ἐγὼ μέλλω πίνειν; λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, Δυνάμεθα. Jesus turned to the brothers and said, 'You do not understand what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I am to drink?' We can', they replied. 
23λέγει αὐτοῖς, Τὸ μὲν ποτήριόν μου πίεσθε, τὸ δὲ καθίσαι ἐκ δεξιῶν μου καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων οὐκ ἐστιν ἐμὸν τοῦτο δοῦναι, ἀλλ' οἷς ἡτοίμασται ὑπὸ τοῦ πατρός μου. Then he said to them, 'You shall indeed share my cup; but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant; it is for those to whom it has already been assigned by my Father.'
 
24Καὶ ἀκούσαντες οἱ δέκα ἠγανάκτησαν περὶ τῶν δύο ἀδελφῶν. When the other ten heard this, they were indignant with the two brothers. 
25ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς προσκαλεσάμενος αὐτοὺς εἶπεν, Οἰδατε ὅτι οἱ ἀρχοντες τῶν ἐθνῶν κατακυριεύουσιν αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ μεγάλοι κατεξουσιάζουσιν αὐτῶν. So Jesus called them to him and said, 'You know that in the world, rulers lord it over their subjects, and their great men make them feel the weight of authority; 
26οὐχ οὑτως ἐσται ἐν ὑμῖν· ἀλλ' ὃς ἐὰν θέλῃ ἐν ὑμῖν μέγας γενέσθαι ἐσται ὑμῶν διάκονος, but it shall not be so with you. Among you, whoever wants to be great must be vour servant, 
27καὶ ὃς ἂν θέλῃ ἐν ὑμῖν εἶναι πρῶτος ἐσται ὑμῶν δοῦλος· and whoever would be first must be the willing slave of allý 
28ὡσπερ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου οὐκ ἦλθεν διακονηθῆναι ἀλλὰ διακονῆσαι καὶ δοῦναι τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ λύτρον ἀντὶ πολλῶν. like the Son of Man; he did not come to be served, but to serve, and to surrender his life as a ransom for many.'
 
29Καὶ ἐκπορευομένων αὐτῶν ἀπὸ Ἰεριχὼ ἠκολούθησεν αὐτῷ ὀχλος πολύς. As they were leaving Jericho he was followed by a great crowd of people.The Healing of Two Blind Men Mt.20.29-34 | Mk.10.46-52 | Lk.18.35-43
30καὶ ἰδοὺ δύο τυφλοὶ καθήμενοι παρὰ τὴν ὁδόν, ἀκούσαντες ὅτι Ἰησοῦς παράγει, ἐκραξαν λέγοντες, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς, [Κύριε], υἱὸς Δαυίδ. At the roadside sat two blind men. When they heard it said that Jesus was passing they shouted, 'Have pity on us. Son of David.' 
31ὁ δὲ ὀχλος ἐπετίμησεν αὐτοῖς ἵνα σιωπήσωσιν· οἱ δὲ μεῖζον ἐκραξαν λέγοντες, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς, Κύριε, υἱὸς Δαυίδ. The people rounded on them and told them to be quiet. But they shouted all the more, 'Sir, have pity on us, have pity on us, Son of David.' 
32καὶ στὰς ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐφώνησεν αὐτοὺς καὶ εἶπεν, Τί θέλετε ποιήσω ὑμῖν; Jesus stopped and called the men. 'What do you want me to do for you?' 
33λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, Κύριε, ἵνα ἀνοιγῶσιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ἡμῶν. he asked. 'Sir,' they answered, 'we want our sight.' 
34σπλαγχνισθεὶς δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἡψατο τῶν ὀμμάτων αὐτῶν, καὶ εὐθέως ἀνέβλεψαν καὶ ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῷ. Jesus was deeply moved, and touched their eyes. At once their sight came back, and they went on after him.
