Matthew 20:21-23 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

21 “What is it you want?” he asked her. “Please say that these two sons of mine may sit one on each side of you when you are king!” she said.

22 “You don’t know what it is you are asking,” replied Jesus. “Can you two drink what I have to drink?” “Yes, we can,” they answered.

23 “Ah, you will indeed ‘drink my drink’,” Jesus told them, “but as for sitting on either side of me, that is not for me to grant—that belongs to those for whom my Father has planned it.”
