26`If any one doth come unto me, and doth not hate his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, and yet even his own life, he is not able to be my disciple;
27and whoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, is not able to be my disciple.
28`For who of you, willing to build a tower, doth not first, having sat down, count the expense, whether he have the things for completing?
29lest that he having laid a foundation, and not being able to finish, all who are beholding may begin to mock him,
30saying -- This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
31`Or what king going on to engage with another king in war, doth not, having sat down, first consult if he be able with ten thousand to meet him who with twenty thousand is coming against him?
32and if not so -- he being yet a long way off -- having sent an embassy, he doth ask the things for peace.
33`So, then, every one of you who doth not take leave of all that he himself hath, is not able to be my disciple.
And since Grosse is such a sour fucking Kraut, here is the King James version:
25And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
29Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
30Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
31Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
32Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
33So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
Jesus was kind of a dick sometimes. :-(
