Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the age, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction; and many are those who enter by it.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it.
Enter through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road, the one that leads away to ruin and everlasting misery. And many there are who are constantly entering through it.
“Go in by the narrow gate. For the wide gate has a broad road which leads to disaster and there are many people going that way.
“Go in by the narrow gate; for broad and roomy is the road that leads to destruction, and many are going in by it.
