Marcos

14. Now after John had been put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news of God,

15. And saying, The time has come, and the kingdom of God is near: let your hearts be turned from sin and have faith in the good news.

16. And going by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon, and Andrew, the brother of Simon, putting a net into the sea: for they were fishermen.

17. And Jesus said to them, Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.

18. And they went straight from their nets, and came after him.

19. And going on a little farther, he saw James, the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were in their boat stitching up their nets.

20. And he said, Come after me: and they went away from their father Zebedee, who was in the boat with the servants, and came after him.

21. And they came to Capernaum; and on the Sabbath he went into the Synagogue and gave teaching.

22. And they were full of wonder at his teaching, because he gave it as one having authority, and not like the scribes.

23. And there was in their Synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he gave a cry,

24. Saying, What have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? have you come to put an end to us? I see well who you are, the Holy One of God.

25. And Jesus said to him sharply, Be quiet, and come out of him.

26. And the unclean spirit, shaking him violently, and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.

27. And they were all greatly surprised, so that they put questions to one another, saying, What is this? a new teaching! with authority he gives orders even to the unclean spirits, and they do what he says.

28. And news of him went out quickly everywhere into all parts of Galilee round about.

29. And when they came out of the Synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

30. Now Simon's wife's mother was ill, with a burning heat; and they gave him word of her:

31. And he came and took her by the hand, lifting her up; and she became well, and took care of their needs.

32. And in the evening, at sundown, they took to him all who were diseased, and those who had evil spirits.

33. And all the town had come together at the door.

34. And a number, who were ill with different diseases, he made well, and sent out evil spirits; but he did not let the evil spirits say anything, because they had knowledge of him.

35. And in the morning, a long time before daylight, he got up and went out to a quiet place, and there he gave himself up to prayer.

36. And Simon and those who were with him came after him.

37. And when they came up with him, they said to him, Everyone is looking for you.

38. And he said to them, Let us go to other parts into the nearest towns, so that I may give teaching there, because for this purpose I came.

39. And he went into their Synagogues in every part of Galilee, preaching and driving out evil spirits.

40. And a leper came to him and, going down on his knees before him, made a request, saying, If it is your pleasure, you have the power to make me clean.

41. And being moved with pity, he put out his hand, and touching him said to him, It is my pleasure; be made clean.

42. And straight away the disease went from him, and he was made clean.

43. And he sent him away, saying to him very sharply,

44. See that you say nothing to any man: but go and let the priest see you, and make yourself clean by an offering of the things ordered by Moses, for a witness to them.

45. But he went out, and made it public, giving an account of it everywhere, so that Jesus was no longer able to go openly into a town, but was outside in the waste land; and they came to him from every part.

1. And when he came into Capernaum again after some days, the news went about that he was in the house.

2. And a great number had come together, so that there was no longer room for them, no, not even about the door: and he gave them teaching.

3. And four men came to him with one on a bed who had no power of moving.

4. And when they were unable to get near him because of all the people, they got the roof uncovered where he was: and when it was broken up, they let down the bed on which the man was.

5. And Jesus, seeing their faith, said to him, Son, you have forgiveness for your sins.

6. But there were certain of the scribes seated there, and reasoning in their hearts,

7. Why does this man say such things? he has no respect for God: from whom does forgiveness come but from God only?

8. And Jesus, having knowledge in his spirit of their thoughts, said to them, Why are you reasoning about these things in your hearts?

9. Which is the simpler, to say to a man who is ill, You have forgiveness for your sins, or, Get up, take up your bed, and go?

10. But so that you may see that the Son of man has authority for the forgiveness of sins on earth, (he said to the man,)

11. I say to you, Get up, take up your bed, and go to your house.

12. And he got up, and straight away took up the bed and went out before them all, so that they were all full of wonder, and gave glory to God, saying, We have never seen anything like this.

13. And he went out again by the seaside; and all the people came to him, and he gave them teaching.

14. And when he went by, he saw Levi, the son of Alphaeus, seated at the place where taxes were taken, and he said to him, Come with me. And he got up, and went with him.

15. And it came about that he was seated at meat in his house, and a number of tax-farmers and sinners were at table with Jesus and his disciples: for there were a great number of them, and they came after him.

16. And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was taking food with the tax-farmers and sinners, said to his disciples, Why does he take food and drink with such men?

17. And Jesus, hearing it, said to them, Those who are well have no need of a medical man, but those who are ill: I have come not to get the upright but sinners.

18. And John's disciples and the Pharisees were taking no food: and they came and said to him, Why do John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees go without food, but your disciples do not?

19. And Jesus said to them, Will the friends of a newly-married man go without food while he is with them? as long as they have him with them they will not go without food.

20. But the days will come when the husband will be taken away from them, and then they will go without food.

21. No man puts a bit of new cloth on an old coat: or the new, by pulling away from the old, makes a worse hole.

22. And no man puts new wine into old wine-skins: or the skins will be burst by the wine, and the wine and the skins will be wasted: but new wine has to be put into new wine-skins.

23. And it came about that on the Sabbath day he was going through the grain-fields; and while they were walking, his disciples took the heads of grain.

24. And the Pharisees said to him, Why are they doing what it is not right to do on the Sabbath?

25. And he said to them, Have you no knowledge of what David did, when he had need and was without food, he, and those who were with him?

26. How he went into the house of God when Abiathar was high priest, and took for food the holy bread, which only the priests may take, and gave it to those who were with him?

27. And he said to them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath;

28. So that the Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath.

1. And he went again into the Synagogue; and there was a man there whose hand was dead.

2. And they were watching him to see if he would make him well on the Sabbath day, so that they might have something against him.

3. And he said to the man, Get up and come forward.

4. And he said to them, Is it right to do good on the Sabbath or to do evil? to give life or to put to death? But they said nothing.

5. And looking round on them he was angry, being sad because of their hard hearts; and he said to the man, Put out your hand. And he put it out, and his hand was made well.

6. And the Pharisees went out, and straight away made designs with the Herodians about how they might put him to death.

7. And Jesus went away with his disciples to the sea, and a great number from Galilee came after him: and from Judaea,

8. And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and the other side of Jordan, and the country about Tyre and Sidon, a great number, hearing what great things he did, came to him.

9. And he made a request to his disciples to have a little boat ready for him, so that he might not be crushed by the people;

10. For he had made such a great number well that all those who were diseased were falling down before him for the purpose of touching him.

11. And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw him, went down before him, crying out, and saying, You are the Son of God.

12. And he gave them special orders not to say who he was.

13. And he went up into the mountain, and sent for those whom it was his pleasure to have with him: and they went to him.

14. And he took twelve to be with him, so that he might send them out as preachers,

15. And give them the power of driving out evil spirits:

16. To Simon he gave the second name of Peter;

17. And to James, the son of Zebedee, and John, the brother of James, he gave the second name of Boanerges, which is, Sons of thunder:

18. And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot;

19. And Judas Iscariot, who was false to him.

20. And he went into a house. And the people came together again, so that they were not even able to take bread.

21. And when his friends had news of it, they went out to get him, saying, He is off his head.

22. And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem, said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the ruler of evil spirits he sends evil spirits out of men.

23. And turning to them, he said to them in the form of a story, How is it possible for Satan to put out Satan?

24. If there is division in a kingdom, that kingdom will come to destruction;

25. And if there is division in a house, that house will come to destruction;

26. And if Satan is at war with himself, and there is division in him, he will not keep his place but will come to an end.

27. But no one is able to go into the house of the strong man and take his goods, without first putting cords round the strong man, and then he will take his goods.

28. Truly, I say to you, The sons of men will have forgiveness for all their sins and for all the evil words they say:

29. But whoever says evil things against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but the evil he has done will be with him for ever:

30. Because they said, He has an unclean spirit.

31. And his mother and brothers came and were outside, and sent for him, requesting to see him.

32. And a great number were seated round him; and they said to him, See, your mother and your brothers are outside looking for you.

33. And he said in answer, Who are my mother and my brothers?

34. And looking round at those who were seated about him, he said, See, my mother and my brothers!

35. Whoever does God's pleasure, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

1. And again he was teaching by the seaside. And a very great number of people had come to him, so that he got into a boat on the sea and took his seat; and all the people were on the land by the seaside.

2. And he gave them teaching about a number of things in the form of stories, and said to them in his teaching, Give ear:

3. A man went out to put seed in the earth:

4. And while he was doing it, some was dropped by the wayside, and the birds came and took it for food.

5. And some went on the stones, where it had not much earth; and it came up straight away, because the earth was not deep:

6. And when the sun was high, it was burned; and because it had no root, it became dry and dead.

7. And some went among the thorns, and the thorns came up, and it had no room for growth and gave no fruit.

8. And some, falling on good earth, gave fruit, coming up and increasing, and giving thirty, sixty, and a hundred times as much.

9. And he said to them, Whoever has ears, let him give ear.

10. And when he was by himself, those who were round him with the twelve put questions to him about the purpose of the stories.

11. And he said to them, To you is given the secret of the kingdom of God, but to those who are outside, all things are given in the form of stories;

12. So that seeing they may see, and it will not be clear to them; and hearing it, they will not get the sense; for fear that they may be turned again to me and have forgiveness.

13. And he said to them, If you are not clear about this story, how will you be clear about the others?

14. The seed is the word.

15. And these are they by the wayside, where the word is planted; and when they have given ear, the Evil One comes straight away and takes away the word which has been planted in them.

16. And in the same way, these are they who are planted on the stones, who, when the word has come to their ears, straight away take it with joy;

17. And they have no root in themselves, but go on for a time; then, when trouble comes or pain, because of the word, they quickly become full of doubts.

18. And others are those planted among the thorns; these are they who have given ear to the word,

19. And the cares of this life, and the deceits of wealth, and the desire for other things coming in, put a stop to the growth of the word, and it gives no fruit.

20. And these are they who were planted on the good earth; such as give ear to the word, and take it into their hearts, and give fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred times as much.

21. And he said to them, When the light comes in, do people put it under a vessel, or under the bed, and not on its table?

22. There is nothing covered which will not be seen openly, and nothing has been made secret which will not come to light.

23. If any man has ears, let him give ear.

24. And he said to them, Take care what you give ear to: in the same measure as you give you will get, and more will be given to you.

25. He who has, to him will be given: and he who has not, from him will be taken even that which he has.

26. And he said, Such is the kingdom of God, as if a man put seed in the earth,

27. And went to sleep and got up, night and day, and the seed came to growth, though he had no idea how.

28. The earth gives fruit by herself; first the leaf, then the head, then the full grain.

29. But when the grain is ready, he quickly sends men to get it cut, because the time for cutting has come.

30. And he said, What picture may we give of the kingdom of God, or with what story may we make it clear?

31. It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is put in the earth, is smaller than all the seeds on the earth,

32. But when it is planted, it comes up, and becomes taller than all the plants, and puts out great branches, so that the birds of heaven are able to take rest in its shade.

33. And with a number of such stories he gave them his teaching, as they were able to take it:

34. And without a story he said nothing to them: but privately to his disciples he made all things clear.

35. And on that day, when the evening had come, he said to them, Let us go over to the other side.

36. And going away from the people, they took him with them, as he was, in the boat. And other boats were with him.

37. And a great storm of wind came up, and the waves came into the boat, so that the boat was now becoming full.

38. And he himself was in the back of the boat, sleeping on the cushion: and they, awaking him, said, Master, is it nothing to you that we are in danger of destruction?

39. And he came out of his sleep, and gave strong orders to the wind, and said to the sea, Peace, be at rest. And the wind went down, and there was a great calm.

40. And he said to them, Why are you full of fear? have you still no faith?

41. And their fear was great, and they said one to another, Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea do his orders?

1. And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes.

2. And when he had got out of the boat, straight away there came to him from the place of the dead a man with an unclean spirit.

3. He was living in the place of the dead: and no man was able to keep him down, no, not with a chain;

4. Because he had frequently been prisoned in chains and iron bands, and the chains had been parted and the bands broken by him: and no man was strong enough to make him quiet.

5. And all the time, by day and by night, in the place of the dead, and in the mountains, he was crying out and cutting himself with stones.

6. And when he saw Jesus from far off, he went quickly to him and gave him worship;

7. And crying out with a loud voice he said, What have I to do with you, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God's name, do not be cruel to me.

8. For Jesus had said to him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit.

9. And Jesus said, What is your name? And he made answer, My name is Legion, because there are a great number of us.

10. And he made strong prayers to him not to send them away out of the country.

11. Now on the mountain side there was a great herd of pigs getting their food.

12. And they said to him, Send us into the pigs, so that we may go into them.

13. And he let them do it. And the unclean spirits came out and went into the pigs; and the herd went rushing down a sharp slope into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they came to their death in the sea.

14. And their keepers went running and gave an account of it in the town and in the country. And people came to see what had taken place.

15. And they came to Jesus, and saw the man in whom had been the evil spirits seated, clothed and with full use of his senses, and they were full of fear.

16. And those who had seen it gave them an account of what had been done to him who had the evil spirits, and of the fate of the pigs.

17. And they made a request to him to go out of their country.

18. And when he was getting into the boat, the man in whom had been the evil spirits had a great desire to come with him.

19. And he would not let him, but said to him, Go to your house, to your friends, and give them news of the great things the Lord has done for you, and how he had mercy on you.

20. And he went on his way, and made public in the country of Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him: and all men were full of wonder.

21. And when Jesus had gone over again in the boat to the other side, a great number of people came to him: and he was by the sea.

22. And one of the rulers of the Synagogue, Jairus by name, came, and seeing him, went down at his feet,

23. And made strong prayers to him, saying, My little daughter is near to death: it is my prayer that you will come and put your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and have life.

24. And he went with him; and a great number of people went after him, and came round him.

25. And a woman, who had had a flow of blood for twelve years,

26. And had undergone much at the hands of a number of medical men, and had given all she had, and was no better, but even worse,

27. When she had news of the things which Jesus did, went among the people coming after him, and put her hand on his robe.

28. For she said, If I may only put my hand on his robe, I will be made well.

29. And straight away the fountain of her blood was stopped, and she had a feeling in her body that her disease had gone and she was well.

30. And straight away Jesus was conscious that power had gone out of him; and, turning to the people, he said, Who was touching my robe?

31. And his disciples said to him, You see the people round you on every side, and you say, Who was touching me?

32. And on his looking round to see her who had done this thing,

33. The woman, shaking with fear, conscious of what had been done to her, came and, falling on her face before him, gave him a true account of everything.

34. And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be free from your disease.

35. And while he was still talking, they came from the ruler of the Synagogue's house, saying, Your daughter is dead: why are you still troubling the Master?

36. But Jesus, giving no attention to their words, said to the ruler of the Synagogue, Have no fear, only have faith.

37. And he did not let anyone come with him, but Peter and James and John, the brother of James.

38. And they came to the house of the ruler of the Synagogue; and he saw people running this way and that, and weeping and crying loudly.

39. And when he had gone in, he said to them, Why are you making such a noise and weeping? The child is not dead, but sleeping.

40. And they were laughing at him. But he, having sent them all out, took the father of the child and her mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was.

41. And taking her by the hand, he said to her, Talitha cumi, which is, My child, I say to you, Get up.

42. And the young girl got up straight away, and was walking about; she being twelve years old. And they were overcome with wonder.

43. And he gave them special orders that they were not to say anything of this; and he said that some food was to be given to her.

1. And he went away from there, and came into his country; and his disciples went with him.

2. And when the Sabbath day had come, he was teaching in the Synagogue; and a number of people hearing him were surprised, saying, From where did this man get these things? and, What is the wisdom given to this man, and what are these works of power done by his hands?

3. Is not this the woodworker, the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were bitter against him.

4. And Jesus said to them, A prophet is nowhere without honour, but in his country, and among his relations, and in his family.

5. And he was unable to do any work of power there, but only to put his hands on one or two persons who were ill, and make them well.

6. And he was greatly surprised because they had no faith. And he went about the country places teaching.

7. And he gave orders to the twelve, and sent them out two by two; and he gave them authority over the unclean spirits;

8. And he said that they were to take nothing for their journey, but a stick only; no bread, no bag, no money in their pockets;

9. They were to go with common shoes on their feet, and not to take two coats.

10. And he said to them, Wherever you go into a house, make that your resting-place till you go away.

11. And whatever place will not take you in and will not give ear to you, when you go away, put off the dust from your feet as a witness against them.

12. And they went out, preaching the need for a change of heart in men.

13. And they sent out a number of evil spirits, and put oil on a great number who were ill, and made them well.

14. And king Herod had news of him, because his name was on the lips of all; and he said, John the Baptist has come back from the dead, and for this reason these powers are working in him.

15. But others said, It is Elijah. And others said, It is a prophet, even like one of the prophets.

16. But Herod, when he had news of it, said, John, whom I put to death, has come back from the dead.

17. For Herod himself had sent men out to take John and put him in prison, because of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, whom he had taken for himself.

18. For John said to Herod, It is wrong for you to have your brother's wife.

19. And Herodias was bitter against him, desiring to put him to death; but she was not able;

20. For Herod was in fear of John, being conscious that he was an upright and holy man, and kept him safe. And hearing him, he was much troubled; and he gave ear to him gladly.

21. And the chance came when Herod on his birthday gave a feast to his lords, and the high captains, and the chief men of Galilee;

22. And when the daughter of Herodias herself came in and did a dance, Herod and those who were at table with him were pleased with her; and the king said to the girl, Make a request for anything and I will give it you.

23. And he took an oath, saying to her, Whatever is your desire I will give it to you, even half of my kingdom.

24. And she went out and said to her mother, What is my request to be? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

25. And she came in quickly to the king, and said, My desire is that you give me straight away on a plate the head of John the Baptist.

26. And the king was very sad; but because of his oaths, and those who were with him at table, he would not say 'No' to her.

27. And straight away the king sent out one of his armed men, and gave him an order to come back with the head: and he went and took off John's head in prison,

28. And came back with the head on a plate, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother.

29. And when his disciples had news of it, they came and took up his body, and put it in its last resting-place.

30. And the twelve came together to Jesus; and they gave him an account of all the things they had done, and all they had been teaching.

31. And he said to them, Come away by yourselves to a quiet place, and take a rest for a time. Because there were a great number coming and going, and they had no time even for food.

32. And they went away in the boat to a waste place by themselves.

33. And the people saw them going, and a number of them, having knowledge who they were, went running there together on foot from all the towns, and got there before them.

34. And he got out, and saw a great mass of people, and he had pity on them, because they were like sheep without a keeper: and he gave them teaching about a number of things.

35. And at the end of the day, his disciples came to him and said, This place is waste land, and it is late:

36. Send them away, so that they may go into the country and small towns round about, and get some food for themselves.

37. But he said to them in answer, Give them food yourselves. And they said to him, Are we to go and get bread for two hundred pence, and give it to them?

38. And he said to them, How much bread have you? go and see. And when they had seen, they said, Five cakes of bread and two fishes.

39. And he made them all be seated in groups on the green grass.

40. And they were placed in groups, by hundreds and by fifties.

41. And he took the five cakes of bread and the two fishes and, looking up to heaven, he said words of blessing over them; and when the cakes were broken, he gave them to the disciples to put before the people; and he made division of the two fishes among them all.

42. And they all took of the food and had enough.

43. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken bits and of the fishes.

44. And those who took of the bread were five thousand men.

45. And straight away he made his disciples get into the boat, and go before him to the other side to Beth-saida, while he himself sent the people away.

46. And after he had sent them away, he went up into a mountain for prayer.

47. And by evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and he by himself on the land.

48. And seeing that they had trouble in getting their boat through the water, because the wind was against them, about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea; and he would have gone past them;

49. But they, when they saw him walking on the sea, took him for a spirit, and gave a loud cry:

50. For they all saw him, and were troubled. But straight away he said to them, Take heart, it is I, have no fear.

51. And he went to them into the boat, and the wind went down, and they were full of wonder in themselves;

52. For it was not clear to them about the bread; but their hearts were hard.

53. And when they had gone across, they came to Gennesaret, and got their boat to land.

54. And when they had got out of the boat, the people quickly had news of him,

55. And went running through all the country round about, and took on their beds those who were ill, to where it was said that he was.

56. And wherever he went, into small towns, or great towns, or into the country, they took those who were ill into the market-places, requesting him that they might put their hands even on the edge of his robe: and all those who did so were made well.

1. And there came together to him the Pharisees and certain of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem,

2. And had seen that some of his disciples took their bread with unclean, that is, unwashed, hands.

3. Now the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not take food without washing their hands with care, keeping the old rule which has been handed down to them:

4. And when they come from the market-place, they take no food till their hands are washed; and a number of other orders there are, which have been handed down to them to keep--washings of cups and pots and brass vessels.

5. And the Pharisees and the scribes put the question to him, Why do your disciples not keep the rules of the fathers, but take their bread with unwashed hands?

6. And he said, Well did Isaiah say of you, you false ones: These people give me honour with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

7. But their worship is to no purpose, while they give as their teaching the rules of men.

8. For, turning away from the law of God, you keep the rules of men.

9. And he said to them, Truly you put on one side the law of God, so that you may keep the rules which have been handed down to you.

10. For Moses said, Give honour to your father and mother, and, He who says evil of father or mother, let him have the punishment of death:

11. But you say, If a man says to his father or his mother, That by which you might have had profit from me is Corban, that is to say, Given to God,

12. You no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother;

13. Making the word of God of no effect by your rule, which you have given: and a number of other such things you do.

14. And turning to the people again, he said to them, Give ear to me all of you, and let my words be clear to you:

15. There is nothing outside the man which, going into him, is able to make him unclean: but the things which come out of the man are those which make the man unclean.

16. []

17. And when he had gone into the house away from all the people, his disciples put questions to him about the saying.

18. And he said to them, Have even you so little wisdom? Do you not see that whatever goes into a man from outside is not able to make him unclean,

19. Because it goes not into the heart but into the stomach, and goes out with the waste? He said this, making all food clean.

20. And he said, That which comes out of the man, that makes the man unclean.

21. Because from inside, from the heart of men, come evil thoughts and unclean pleasures,

22. The taking of goods and of life, broken faith between husband and wife, the desire of wealth, wrongdoing, deceit, sins of the flesh, an evil eye, angry words, pride, foolish acts:

23. All these evil things come from inside, and make the man unclean.

24. And he went away from there to the country of Tyre and Sidon. And he went into a house, desiring that no man might have knowledge of it: and he was not able to keep it secret.

25. But a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having had news of him, came straight away and went down at his feet.

26. Now the woman was a Greek, a Syro-phoenician by birth: and she made a request to him that he would send the evil spirit out of her daughter.

27. And he said to her, Let the children first have their food: for it is not right to take the children's bread and give it to the dogs.

28. But she said to him in answer, Yes, Lord: even the dogs under the table take the bits dropped by the children.

29. And he said to her, For this saying go your way; the evil spirit has gone out of your daughter.

30. And she went away to her house, and saw the child on the bed, and the evil spirit gone out.

31. And again he went out from Tyre, and came through Sidon to the sea of Galilee, through the country of Decapolis.

32. And they came to him with one who had no power of hearing and had trouble in talking; and they made a request to him to put his hands on him.

33. And he took him on one side from the people privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he put water from his mouth on the man's tongue with his finger;

34. And looking up to heaven, he took a deep breath, and said to him, Ephphatha, that is, Be open.

35. And his ears became open, and the band of his tongue was made loose, and his words became clear.

36. And he gave them orders not to give news of it to anyone; but the more he made this request, so much the more they made it public.

37. And they were overcome with wonder, saying, He has done all things well: he even gives back the power of hearing and the power of talking to those who have been without them.

1. In those days again, when there was a great mass of people and they had no food, he made his disciples come to him and said to them,

2. I have pity for these people because they have been with me now three days, and have no food;

3. If I send them away to their houses with no food, they will be overcome by weariness on the way; and some of them have come from far.

4. And his disciples said in answer, How will it be possible to get enough bread for these men here in a waste place?

5. And he put the question, How much bread have you? And they said, Seven cakes.

6. And he made the people be seated on the earth: and he took the seven cakes and, having given praise, he gave the broken bread to his disciples to put before them; and they put it before the people.

7. And they had some small fishes; and blessing them he had them put before the people in the same way.

8. And they took the food, and had enough; and they took up seven baskets full of the broken bits.

9. And there were about four thousand people: and he sent them away.

10. And he got into the boat with his disciples straight away, and came into the country of Dalmanutha.

11. And the Pharisees came out and put questions to him, requesting from him a sign from heaven, testing him.

12. And he was very sad in spirit, and said, Why is this generation looking for a sign? truly, I say to you, No sign will be given to this generation.

13. And he went away from them, and again got into the boat and went across to the other side.

14. And they had taken no thought to get bread; and they had only one cake of bread with them in the boat.

15. And he said to them, Take care to be on the watch against the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.

16. And they said to one another, We have no bread.

17. And Jesus, hearing it, said to them, Why are you reasoning among yourselves because you have no bread? do you still not see, and is it still not clear to you? are your hearts so hard?

18. Having eyes, do you not see? and having ears, have you no hearing? and have you no memory?

19. When I made a division of the five cakes of bread among the five thousand, what number of baskets full of broken bits did you take up? They said to him, Twelve.

20. And when the seven among the four thousand, what number of baskets full of broken bits did you take up? And they said to him, Seven.

21. And he said to them, Is it still not clear to you?

22. And they came to Beth-saida. And they took a blind man to him, requesting him to put his hands on him.

23. And he took the blind man by the hand, and went with him out of the town; and when he had put water from his mouth on his eyes, and put his hands on him, he said, Do you see anything?

24. And looking up, he said, I see men; I see them like trees, walking.

25. Then again he put his hands on his eyes; and looking hard, he was able to see, and saw all things clearly.

26. And he sent him away to his house, saying, Do not even go into the town.

27. And Jesus went out, with his disciples, into the little towns round Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he put a question to his disciples, saying, Who do men say that I am?

28. And they made answer, John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but others, One of the prophets.

29. And he said to them, But who do you say I am? Peter said in answer, You are the Christ.

30. And he put them under orders not to say this of him to anyone.

31. And teaching them, he said that the Son of man would have to undergo much, and be hated by those in authority, and the chief priests, and the scribes, and be put to death, and after three days come back from the dead.

32. And he said this openly. And Peter took him, and was protesting.

33. But he, turning about, and seeing his disciples, said sharply to Peter, Get out of my way, Satan: for your mind is not on the things of God, but on the things of men.

34. And turning to the mass of people with his disciples, he said to them, If any man has the desire to come after me, let him give up all other desires, and take up his cross and come after me.

35. Whoever has a desire to keep his life, will have it taken from him; and whoever gives up his life because of me and the good news, will keep it.

36. What profit has a man if he gets all the world with the loss of his life?

37. And what would a man give in exchange for his life?

38. Whoever has a feeling of shame because of me and my words in this false and evil generation, the Son of man will have a feeling of shame because of him, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

1. And he said to them, Truly I say to you, There are some here who will have no taste of death till they see the kingdom of God come with power.

2. And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and made them go up with him into a high mountain by themselves: and he was changed in form before them:

3. And his clothing became shining, very white, as no cleaner on earth would make it.

4. And there came before them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.

5. And Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tents; one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.

6. Because he was not certain what to say, for they were in great fear.

7. And a cloud came over them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my dearly loved Son, give ear to him.

8. And suddenly looking round about, they saw no one any longer, but Jesus only with themselves.

9. And while they were coming down from the mountain, he gave them orders not to give word to any man of the things they had seen, till the Son of man had come back from the dead.

10. And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the coming back from the dead might be.

11. And they put a question to him, saying, Why do the scribes say that Elijah has to come first?

12. And he said to them, Truly, Elijah does come first, and puts all things in order; and how is it said in the Writings that the Son of man will go through much sorrow and be made as nothing?

13. But I say to you that Elijah has come, and they have done to him whatever they were pleased to do, even as the Writings say about him.

14. And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great mass of people about them, and scribes questioning them.

15. And straight away all the people, when they saw him, were full of wonder, and running to him, gave him worship.

16. And he said, What are you questioning them about?

17. And one of the number said to him in answer, Master, I came to you with my son, who has in him a spirit which takes away his power of talking;

18. And wherever it takes him, it puts him down violently, streaming at the lips and twisted with pain; and his strength goes from him; and I made a request to your disciples to send it out, and they were not able.

19. And he said to them in answer, O generation without faith, how long will I have to be with you? how long will I put up with you? let him come to me.

20. And they took him to him: and when he saw him, the spirit in him straight away became violent; and he went down on the earth, rolling about and streaming at the lips.

21. And Jesus questioning the father said, How long has he been like this? And he said, From a child.

22. And frequently it has sent him into the fire and into the water, for his destruction; but if you are able to do anything, have pity on us, and give us help.

23. And Jesus said to him, If you are able! All things are possible to him who has faith.

24. Straight away the father of the child gave a cry, saying, I have faith; make my feeble faith stronger.

25. And when Jesus saw that the people came running together, he gave orders to the unclean spirit, saying to him, You, spirit, who are the cause of his loss of voice and hearing, I say to you, come out of him, and never again go into him.

26. And after crying out and shaking him violently, it came out: and the child became like one dead; so that most of them said, He is dead.

27. But Jesus took him by the hand, lifting him up; and he got up.

28. And when he had gone into the house, his disciples said to him privately, Why were we unable to send it out?

29. And he said to them, Nothing will make this sort come out but prayer.

30. And they went out from there, through Galilee; and it was his desire that no man might have knowledge of it;

31. For he was giving his disciples teaching, and saying to them, The Son of man is given up into the hands of men, and they will put him to death; and when he is dead, after three days he will come back from the dead.

32. But the saying was not clear to them, and they were in fear of questioning him about it.

33. And they came to Capernaum: and when he was in the house, he put the question to them, What were you talking about on the way?

34. But they said nothing: because they had had an argument between themselves on the way, about who was the greatest.

36. And he took a little child, and put him in the middle of them; and taking him in his arms, he said to them,

37. Whoever will give honour to one such little child in my name, gives honour to me: and whoever gives honour to me, gives honour not to me, but to him who sent me.

38. John said to him, Master, we saw one driving out evil spirits in your name: and we said that he might not, because he is not one of us.
