Mt 19:27-29 -- "you who have followed me" - "intom li ġejtu warajja
[Mt:19:27] Mbagħad qabeż Pietru u qallu: "Tajjeb! Aħna ħallejna kollox u ġejna warajk; issa x'se jmissna?" [Mt:19:28] Ġesù qalilhom: "Tassew ngħidilkom, intom li ġejtu warajja, fid-dinja l-ġdida, meta Bin il-bniedem joqgħod fuq it-tron glorjuż tiegħu, intom ukoll toqogħdu fuq tnax-il tron u tagħmlu ħaqq mit-tnax-il tribù ta' Iżrael. [Mt:19:29] U kull min iħalli 'l daru jew 'il ħutu jew 'il missieru jew 'l ommu jew 'l uliedu jew ir-raba' tiegħu minħabba f'ismi, jerġa' jirċievi kollox għal mitt darba iktar, u jieħu b'sehmu l-ħajja ta' dejjem.
