7: They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? edit

12: For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. edit

13: Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. edit

16: And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? edit

17: And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. edit

18: He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, edit
