10 Revised Standard Version Passage

35And James and John, the sons of Zeb'edee, came forward to him, and said to him, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you."The Request of James and John Mk.10.35-45 (Borders of Samaria) | Mt.20.20-28
36And he said to them, "What do you want me to do for you?" 
37And they said to him, "Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory." 
38But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?" 
39And they said to him, "We are able." And Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; 
40but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared." 
41And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. 
42And Jesus called them to him and said to them, "You know that those who are supposed to rule over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. 
43But it shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 
44and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 
45For the Son of man also came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
