25 And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles domineer over them; and those who have authority over them are called ‘Benefactors.’26 But it is not this way for you; rather, the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.27 For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.
Matthew 20:25-28New American Standard Bible (NASB)
25 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles domineer over them, and [a]those in high position exercise authority over them.26 It [b]is not this way among you, but whoever wants to become [c]prominent among you shall be your servant,27 and whoever desires to be first among you shall be your slave;28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His [d]life as a ransom for many.”
42 Calling them to Himself, Jesus *said to them, “You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles domineer over them; and their [a]people in high position exercise authority over them.43 But it is not this way among you; rather, whoever wants to become [b]prominent among you shall be your servant;44 and whoever wants to be first among you shall be slave of all.45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His [c]life as a ransom for many.”
