Mark 10:35-44 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire. 36 And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you? 37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. 38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? 39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized: 40 but to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John. 42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 44 and whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

Greatness Is Serving

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, “Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask.”

36 And He said to them, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

37 They said to Him, “Grant us that we may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on Your left, in Your glory.”

38 But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?”

39 They said to Him, “We are able.”

So Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized; 40 but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared.”

41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be greatly displeased with James and John. 42 But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. 44 And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all.

The Request of James and John

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, “Teacher, we want that whatever we may ask, You would do for us.”

36 He said to them, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

37 They said to Him, “Grant us to sit, one at Your right hand and the other at Your left hand, in Your glory.”

38 But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I drink and be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?”

39 They said to Him, “We can.”

Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink the cup that I drink and be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized. 40 But to sit at My right hand or at My left hand is not Mine to grant. It is for those for whom it has been prepared.”

41 When the ten heard it, they began to be very displeased with James and John. 42 But Jesus called them together, and said, “You know that those who are appointed to rule over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you. Whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever among you would be greatest must be servant of all.

Marcos 10:35-44 Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)

Petición de Santiago y de Juan

(Mt. 20.20-28)

35 Entonces Jacobo y Juan, hijos de Zebedeo, se le acercaron, diciendo: Maestro, querríamos que nos hagas lo que pidiéremos.

36 El les dijo: ¿Qué queréis que os haga?

37 Ellos le dijeron: Concédenos que en tu gloria nos sentemos el uno a tu derecha, y el otro a tu izquierda.

38 Entonces Jesús les dijo: No sabéis lo que pedís. ¿Podéis beber del vaso que yo bebo, o ser bautizados con el bautismo con que yo soy bautizado?

39 Ellos dijeron: Podemos. Jesús les dijo: A la verdad, del vaso que yo bebo, beberéis, y con el bautismo con que yo soy bautizado, seréis bautizados;

40 pero el sentaros a mi derecha y a mi izquierda, no es mío darlo, sino a aquellos para quienes está preparado.

41 Cuando lo oyeron los diez, comenzaron a enojarse contra Jacobo y contra Juan.

42 Mas Jesús, llamándolos, les dijo: Sabéis que los que son tenidos por gobernantes de las naciones se enseñorean de ellas, y sus grandes ejercen sobre ellas potestad.

43 Pero no será así entre vosotros, sino que el que quiera hacerse grande entre vosotros será vuestro servidor,

44 y el que de vosotros quiera ser el primero, será siervo de todos.
