6 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.
8 But Joshua answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are
ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the
baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto
him, We are able.
9 And he saith unto them,
Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with
the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my
left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared
of my Father.
10 And when
the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.
11 But Joshua called them unto him, and said,
Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise
dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
12 But it shall not be so
among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
13 And whosoever will be
chief among you, shall be servant of all.
For even as the Son of man came not to be
ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
