18 Revised Standard Version Passage

18And a ruler asked him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"The Rich Young Man Lk.18.18-30 (borders of Samaria) | Mt.19.16-30 | Mk.10.17-31
19And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 
20You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.'" 
21And he said, "All these I have observed from my youth." 
22And when Jesus heard it, he said to him, "One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." 
23But when he heard this he became sad, for he was very rich. 
24Jesus looking at him said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! 
25For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 
26Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?" 
27But he said, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." 
28And Peter said, "Lo, we have left our homes and followed you." 
29And he said to them, "Truly, I say to you, there is no man who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, 
30who will not receive manifold more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life."
