Mark 10:19.5

from The Sardonic Verses
17As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, "Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" 18Jesus answered him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 19You know the commandments: You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; you shall not defraud; honor your father and your mother." 19.5And, it went without saying, you shall not ask one question too many. 20He replied and said to him, "Teacher, all of these I have observed from my youth." 21 Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, "You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me." 22At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.
