Matthew 00671 20:23 - 28
23) And he (Jesus) 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. 24) And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25) But Jesus 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. 26) But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great (>3173) among you, let him be your minister (>1249); 27) And whosoever will be chief (>4413) among you, let him be your servant (>1401): 28) Even as the Son of man (Jesus speaking of himself) came not to be ministered unto, but to minister (>1247), and to give his life a ransom for many.
