The Gospel According To Mark
Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
Mark 1:2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You.
Mark 1:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare you the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.
Mark 1:4 John did immerse in the wilderness and preach the immersion of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Mark 1:5 Then there went out to him all the land of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all immersed by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.
Mark 1:6 Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a leather belt around his waist; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
Mark 1:7 and preached, and said, there comes One mightier than I after me, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
Mark 1:8 I indeed have immersed you with water: but He will immerse you with the Holy Spirit.
Mark 1:9 It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was immersed by John in the Jordan.
Mark 1:10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him:
Mark 1:11 then there came a voice from heaven, saying, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Mark 1:12 Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
Mark 1:13 So He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.
Mark 1:14 Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mark 1:15 and said, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent, and believe the gospel.
Mark 1:16 Now as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishermen.
Mark 1:17 So Jesus said to them, follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.
Mark 1:18 Immediately they gave up their nets and followed Him.
Mark 1:19 When He had gone a little farther from there, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat fixing their nets.
Mark 1:20 Immediately He called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed Him.
Mark 1:21 Then they went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath day He entered the synagogue and taught.
Mark 1:22 Now they were astonished at His teaching: for He taught them as One that had authority, and not as the scribes.
Mark 1:23 Now there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
Mark 1:24 Saying, let us alone; what have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know You, who You are, the Holy One of God.
Mark 1:25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, hold your peace, and come out of him.
Mark 1:26 So when the unclean spirit had convulsed him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
Mark 1:27 Then they were all amazed, so much so that they questioned among themselves, saying, what thing is this? What new teaching is this? For with authority, He commands even the unclean spirits, and they do obey Him.
Mark 1:28 Immediately His fame spread throughout the entire region around Galilee.
Mark 1:29 Immediately, when they had come out of the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
Mark 1:30 But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and soon they told Him of her.
Mark 1:31 So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she served them.
Mark 1:32 At evening, when the sun did set, they brought to Him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with demons.
Mark 1:33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.
Mark 1:34 For He healed many that were sick of different diseases and cast out many demons; and permitted not the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
Mark 1:35 Now in the morning, rising up much before daybreak, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
Mark 1:36 So Simon and they that were with Him followed after Him.
Mark 1:37 When they had found Him, they said to Him, all men seek You.
Mark 1:38 But He said to them let us go into the next towns that I may preach there also: for this purpose, I came forth.
Mark 1:39 So He preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee and cast out demons.
Mark 1:40 Now there came a leper to Him, begging Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying to Him, if You will, You can make me clean.
Mark 1:41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, put out His hand, and touched him, and said to him, I will; be clean.
Mark 1:42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
Mark 1:43 But He strictly instructed him, and immediately sent him away;
Mark 1:44 and said to him, see you say nothing to anyone: but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
Mark 1:45 But he went out, and began to announce it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, so much so that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city but was outside in deserted places: and they came to Him from every quarter.
Mark 2:1 Again He entered Capernaum after some days; and it was reported that He was in the house.
Mark 2:2 Immediately many were gathered together, so much so that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as around the door: and He preached the word to them.
Mark 2:3 So they came to Him, bringing a paralytic, who was carried by four.
Mark 2:4 When they could not come close to Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed in which the paralytic lay.
Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, son, your sins are forgiven.
Mark 2:6 But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
Mark 2:7 why does this Man speak blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?
Mark 2:8 Immediately when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, He said to them, why do you reason these things in your hearts?
Mark 2:9 Which is easier to say to the paralytic, your sins are forgiven; or to say, arise, and take up your bed, and walk?
Mark 2:10 But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, He said to the paralytic,
Mark 2:11 I say to you, arise, and take up your bed, and go to your house.
Mark 2:12 Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out before them all; so much so that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, we have never seen anything like this!
Mark 2:13 Then He went forth again by the seaside; and all the multitude came to Him, and He taught them.
Mark 2:14 As He passed by, He saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth, and said to him, follow Me. So he rose and followed Him.
Mark 2:15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat to eat in his house, many tax collectors and sinners sat also together with Jesus and His disciples: for there were many, and they followed Him.
Mark 2:16 But when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eat with tax collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, how is it that He eats and drinks with tax-collectors and sinners?
Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard it, He said to them, they that are healthy have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Mark 2:18 The disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they came and said to Him, why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but Your disciples do not?
Mark 2:19 So Jesus said to them, can the friends of the bridegroom fast, while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
Mark 2:20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then will they fast in those days.
Mark 2:21 No man also sews a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up takes away from the old, and the tear is made worse.
Mark 2:22 No man puts new wine into old bottles: else the new wine does burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be damaged: but new wine must be put into new bottles.
Mark 2:23 And it came to pass, that He went through the corn fields on the Sabbath day; and His disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.
Mark 2:24 But the Pharisees said to Him, behold, why do they do on the Sabbath day that which is not lawful?
Mark 2:25 So He said to them, have you never read what David did, when he was in need, and was hungry, he, and they that were with him?
Mark 2:26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the showbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to those who were with him?
Mark 2:27 Then He said to them, the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath:
Mark 2:28 therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath.
Mark 3:1 And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
Mark 3:2 So they watched Him, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath day; that they might accuse Him.
Mark 3:3 Then He said to the man which had the withered hand, rise among us.
Mark 3:4 And He said to them, is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life or to kill? But they held their peace.
Mark 3:5 When He had looked around on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, stretch out your hand. So, he stretched out his hand and it was restored whole as the other.
Mark 3:6 Then the Pharisees went out, and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
Mark 3:7 But Jesus withdrew himself with His disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed Him, and from Judea,
Mark 3:8 Even from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyond the Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came to Him.
Mark 3:9 So he spoke to His disciples that a small boat should be devoted continually for Him because of the multitude, unless they should crush Him.
Mark 3:10 For He had healed many; so much so that they pressed on Him to touch Him, as many as had diseases.
Mark 3:11 For unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried, saying, You are the Son of God!
Mark 3:12 But He strictly instructed them that they should not make Him known.
Mark 3:13 Then He went up to a mountain and called to Him those whom He wanted: and they came to Him.
Mark 3:14 For He chose twelve, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them out to preach,
Mark 3:15 and to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out demons:
Mark 3:16 Simon he surnamed Peter;
Mark 3:17 and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and He surnamed them Boanerges, which is, the Sons of Thunder:
Mark 3:18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
Mark 3:19 and Judas Iscariot, who later betrayed Him: and they went into a house.
Mark 3:20 Then the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
Mark 3:21 When His friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold of Him: for they said, He is out of His mind.
Mark 3:22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, by the prince of the demons He casts out demons.
Mark 3:23 Then He called them to Him, and said to them in parables, how can Satan cast out Satan?
Mark 3:24 If a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
Mark 3:25 If a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.
Mark 3:27 No man can enter a strong man’s house, and plunder his goods, unless he will first bind the strong man; and then he will plunder his house.
Mark 3:28 Truthfully, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may speak:
Mark 3:29 But he that blasphemes against the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness into the New Covenant age but is in danger of perpetual punishment for the error.
Mark 3:30 Because they said, He has an unclean spirit.
Mark 3:31 Then His brothers came and His mother, and standing outside, sent for Him, calling Him.
Mark 3:32 Now the multitude sat about Him, and they said to Him, behold, Your mother and Your brothers outside seek for You.
Mark 3:33 But He answered them, and said, who is My mother, or My brothers?
Mark 3:34 Then He looked around on those who sat about Him, and said, behold My mother and My brothers!
Mark 3:35 For whoever will do the will of God, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother.
Mark 4:1 So He began again to teach by the seaside: and there were gathered to Him a great multitude, so that He entered the boat, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
Mark 4:2 Then He taught them many things by parables, and said to them in His teaching,
Mark 4:3 listen; behold, there went out a sower to plant:
Mark 4:4 and it came to pass, as he planted, some fell by the wayside, and the birds of the air came and devoured it up.
Mark 4:5 Some fell on stony ground, where it had little soil; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of soil:
Mark 4:6 but when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
Mark 4:7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
Mark 4:8 But other fell on good ground and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some a hundred.
Mark 4:9 And He said to them, he that has ears to hear, let him hear.
Mark 4:10 And when He was alone, they that were about Him with the twelve asked of Him the parable.
Mark 4:11 And He said to them, to you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but to them that are outside, all these things are done in parables:
Mark 4:12 that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; unless at any time they should turn, and their sins should be forgiven them.
Mark 4:13 And He said to them, do you not see the meaning of this parable? How then will you comprehend all the parables?
Mark 4:14 The sower plants the word.
Mark 4:15 And these are they by the roadside, where the word is planted; but when they have heard, Satan comes immediately, and takes away the word that was planted in their hearts.
Mark 4:16 These are they likewise which are planted on stony soil, who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
Mark 4:17 but have no root in themselves, and are only for a season: afterward, when tribulation or persecution begins because of the word, they are caused to stumble.
Mark 4:18 And these are they on which are planted among thorns, such as hear the word,
Mark 4:19 but the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things enter in, choking the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
Mark 4:20 Then these are they on which are planted on good ground, such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty-fold, some sixty, and some a hundred.
Mark 4:21 And He said to them, is a candle brought to be put under a bowl, or under a bed? And is it not to be set on a lampstand?
Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hidden, which will not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come into the open.
Mark 4:23 If any man has ears to hear, let him hear.
Mark 4:24 And He said to them, take heed what you hear: with what measure you measure out, it will be measured back to you: and to you that hear will more be given.
Mark 4:25 For he that has, to him will be given: and he that has not, from him will be taken even that which he has.
Mark 4:26 And He said, so is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
Mark 4:27 and should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knows not how.
Mark 4:28 For the land brings forth fruit of herself, first the blade, then the ear, after that the mature corn in the ear.
Mark 4:29 But when the fruit is brought out, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.
Mark 4:30 And He said, what will we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what comparison will we compare it?
Mark 4:31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the soil, is less than all the seeds that be in the soil:
Mark 4:32 But when it is sown, it grows up, and becomes greater than all garden plants, and shoots out great branches; so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.
Mark 4:33 With many such parables He spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it.
Mark 4:34 But He did not speak to them without a parable: and when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples.
Mark 4:35 On the same day, when the evening had come, He said to them let us cross over to the other side.
Mark 4:36 When they had sent away the multitude, they took Him just as He was in the boat. And there were also with Him other little boats.
Mark 4:37 Then there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was now full.
Mark 4:38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow: and they woke Him, and said to Him, Master, do You not care that we are perishing?
Mark 4:39 Then He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, peace, be still. So, the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Mark 4:40 But He said to them, why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?
Mark 4:41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, what manner of Man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?
Mark 5:1 Then they came over to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
Mark 5:2 When He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Mark 5:3 who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
Mark 5:4 because he had been often bound hand and foot, and the chains had been broken apart by him, and the irons broken in pieces: neither could any man subdue him.
Mark 5:5 As always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
Mark 5:6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped Him,
Mark 5:7 and cried with a loud voice, and said, what have I to do with You, Jesus, You Son of the Most High God? I beg You by God, that You torment Me not.
Mark 5:8 For He said to him, come out of the man, you unclean spirit.
Mark 5:9 And He asked him, what is your name? And he answered, and said, my name is Legion: for we are many.
Mark 5:10 Also he begged Him much that He would not send them away out of the country.
Mark 5:11 Now there was close to the mountains a great herd of pigs feeding.
Mark 5:12 So all the demons begged Him, saying, send us into the pigs, that we may enter them.
Mark 5:13 Immediately Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the pigs: and the herd ran violently down a steep slope into the sea, (there were about two thousand) and they drowned in the sea.
Mark 5:14 Then they that fed the pigs fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. So, they went out to see what it was that was done.
Mark 5:15 And they came to Jesus and seeing him that had been possessed with the demon, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
Mark 5:16 Then they that saw it told them how it happened to him that was possessed with the demon, and also concerning the pigs.
Mark 5:17 Then they began to beg Him to depart out of their borders.
Mark 5:18 When He had come into the boat, he that had been possessed with the demon asked Him that he might be with Him.
Mark 5:19 However Jesus did not permit it, but said to him, go home to your friends, and tell them how the Lord has done great things for you, and has had compassion on you.
Mark 5:20 So he departed and began to speak out in Decapolis how Jesus had done great things for him: and all men did marvel.
Mark 5:21 Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, many people gathered to Him: and He was close to the sea.
Mark 5:22 And, behold, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw Him, he fell at His feet,
Mark 5:23 and begged Him greatly, saying, my little daughter lies at the point of death: I pray You, come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.
Mark 5:24 Then Jesus went with him; and many people followed Him and thronged Him.
Mark 5:25 Now a certain woman, who had an issue of blood for twelve years,
Mark 5:26 and had endured many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and had not gotten better, but rather grew worse,
Mark 5:27 when she had heard of Jesus, she came in the crowd behind Him, and touched His garment.
Mark 5:28 For she said, if I may touch but His clothes, I will be healthy.
Mark 5:29 Immediately her bleeding stopped, and she felt in her body that she was healed of that suffering.
Mark 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd, and said, who touched My clothes?
Mark 5:31 But His disciples said to Him, You see the multitude thronging You and say You, who touched me?
Mark 5:32 So He looked around to see her that had done this thing.
Mark 5:33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth.
Mark 5:34 Then He said to her, daughter, your faith has made you healthy; go in peace and be free from your suffering.
Mark 5:35 While He yet spoke, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain who said, your daughter is dead: why trouble the Master any further?
Mark 5:36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, be not afraid, only believe.
Mark 5:37 He permitted no one to follow Him, except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
Mark 5:38 Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the commotion, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
Mark 5:39 When He had come in, He said to them, why make you this commotion, and weep? The girl is not dead, but sleeps.
Mark 5:40 But they laughed Him to scorn. When He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the girl, and them that were with Him, and entered in where the girl was lying.
Mark 5:41 For He took the girl by the hand, and said to her, talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, little girl, I say to you, arise.
Mark 5:42 Immediately the girl arose and walked; for she was twelve years old. So, they were amazed with a great astonishment.
Mark 5:43 But He charged them strictly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
Mark 6:1 Then He went out from there and came into His birthplace; and His disciples followed Him.
Mark 6:2 When the Sabbath day had come, He began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing Him were astonished, saying, from where has this man these things? What wisdom is this which is given to Him that even such mighty works are done by His hands?
Mark 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Judah, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us? For they were offended at Him.
Mark 6:4 But Jesus said to them, a prophet is not without honor, but in his birthplace, and among his own relatives, and in his own house.
Mark 6:5 Now He could not do mighty works there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.
Mark 6:6 So He was marveled by their unbelief. And He went around the villages, teaching.
Mark 6:7 Then He called to Himself the twelve and began to send them out by twos; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
Mark 6:8 and commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, except a staff only; no bag, no bread, no money in their belts:
Mark 6:9 wear sandals; but not an extra tunic.
Mark 6:10 Also He said to them, in whatever place you enter a house, there stay until you depart from that place.
Mark 6:11 For whoever will not receive you, nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Truthfully, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city.
Mark 6:12 So they went out and preached that men should repent.
Mark 6:13 They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
Mark 6:14 Now King Herod heard of Him; for His name was spread abroad: and he said that John the Immerser had risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do manifest themselves by Him.
Mark 6:15 Others said, that it is Elijah. And others said that it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
Mark 6:16 But when Herod heard of it, he said, it is John, who I beheaded: He is risen from the dead.
Mark 6:17 For Herod himself had sent out and laid hold on John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.
Mark 6:18 For John had said to Herod, it is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.
Mark 6:19 Therefore Herodias was very bitter against him and would have killed him; but she could not:
Mark 6:20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and protected him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
Mark 6:21 When an opportune day had come, that Herod on his birthday made a feast for his leaders, high captains, and chief landowners of Galilee;
Mark 6:22 When Herodias’ daughter came in, and danced, and pleased Herod, and them that sat with him, the king said to the girl, ask of me whatever you want, and I will give it you.
Mark 6:23 So he swore to her, whatever you want to ask of me, I will give it you, up to half of my kingdom.
Mark 6:24 Then she went out, and said to her mother, what will I ask? So, she said, the head of John the Immerser.
Mark 6:25 Immediately she came in with haste to the king, and asked, saying, I want that you give me at once on a platter the head of John the Immerser.
Mark 6:26 The king was exceedingly sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes who sat with him, he would not reject her.
Mark 6:27 Immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
Mark 6:28 Then brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl: and the girl gave it to her mother.
Mark 6:29 When his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his dead body, and laid it in a tomb.
Mark 6:30 Then the apostles gathered themselves together to Jesus, and told Him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
Mark 6:31 And He said to them, come yourselves apart into a deserted place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no chance so much as to eat.
Mark 6:32 So they departed into a deserted place by boat privately.
Mark 6:33 But the people saw them departing, and many knew Him, and ran on foot out of all cities, and got there before them, and came together to Him.
Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw many people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and He began to teach them many things.
Mark 6:35 When the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him, and said, this is a deserted place, and now the time is far passed:
Mark 6:36 send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
Mark 6:37 He answered and said to them, give them something to eat. So, they say to Him, will we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread, and give them something to eat?
Mark 6:38 He said to them, how many loaves do you have? Go and see. When they knew, they said, five, and two fish.
Mark 6:39 Then He commanded them to make all to sit down by groups on the green grass.
Mark 6:40 So they sat down in groups, by hundreds, and by fifties.
Mark 6:41 When He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to place before them; and the two fish He divided among them all.
Mark 6:42 For they all did eat and were satisfied.
Mark 6:43 Then they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fish.
Mark 6:44 For they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
Mark 6:45 Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat, and to go to the other side before to Bethsaida, while He sent away the people.
Mark 6:46 When He had sent them away, He departed to a mountain to pray.
Mark 6:47 When evening had come, the boat was amid the sea, and He alone on the land.
Mark 6:48 And He saw them straining at rowing; for the wind was against them: and about the fourth watch of the night, He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed by them.
Mark 6:49 But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:
Mark 6:50 for they all saw Him and were troubled. Immediately He talked with them, and said to them, be of good cheer: I Am; be not afraid.
Mark 6:51 So He went up to them into the boat; and the wind ceased: and they were intensely amazed in themselves beyond measure and wondered.
Mark 6:52 For they did not consider the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
Mark 6:53 When they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and came to the shore.
Mark 6:54 When they had come out of the boat, they were fully knowing Him,
Mark 6:55 and immediately ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, wherever they heard He was.
Mark 6:56 For wherever He entered, into villages, or cities, or fields, they laid the sick in public places, and begged Him that they might touch even the edge of His garment: and as many as touched Him were made whole.
Mark 7:1 Then came together to Him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, who came from Jerusalem.
Mark 7:2 When they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashed, hands, they found fault.
Mark 7:3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, unless they wash their hands often, eat not, following the tradition of the elders.
Mark 7:4 When they come from the market, unless they wash, they eat not. And many other things there are which they have received to follow, as the washing of cups, and pots, copper vessels, and of tables.
Mark 7:5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, why walk not Your disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?
Mark 7:6 He answered and said to them, well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, this people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
Mark 7:7 In vain do they worship Me, teaching for teachings the commandments of men.
Mark 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you follow the traditions of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do.
Mark 7:9 And He said to them, full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition.
Mark 7:10 For Moses said, honor your father and your mother; and, whoever curses father or mother, let him be put to death:
Mark 7:11 but you say, if a man will say to his father or mother, whatever you might have gained from me, it is Corban, that is to say, it is gift to God.
Mark 7:12 And you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or his mother;
Mark 7:13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition, which you have handed down: and like many such things you do.
Mark 7:14 When He had called all the people to Him, He said to them, listen to Me each one of you, and understand:
Mark 7:15 there is nothing from outside a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
Mark 7:16 If any man has ears to hear, let him hear.
Mark 7:17 When He had entered the house of the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.
Mark 7:18 Then He said to them, are you so without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever thing from outside enters the man, it cannot defile him;
Mark 7:19 because it enters not into his heart, but into the stomach, and goes out of the body. Therefore, making all foods clean.
Mark 7:20 And He said, that which comes out of the man defiles the man.
Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Mark 7:22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
Mark 7:23 all these evil things come from within and defile the man.
Mark 7:24 From there He arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into a house, and would have no one know it: but He could not be hidden.
Mark 7:25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him, and came and fell at His feet:
Mark 7:26 the woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she was requesting from Him that He would cast out the demon from her daughter.
Mark 7:27 But Jesus said to her, let the children first be filled: for it is not suitable to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to the dogs.
Mark 7:28 She answered and said to Him, yes, Lord: yet the little dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
Mark 7:29 So He said to her, for this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.
Mark 7:30 When she had come to her house, she found the demon gone, and her daughter lying on the bed.
Mark 7:31 And again, departing from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, He came toward the Sea of Galilee, in between the borders of Decapolis.
Mark 7:32 Then they brought to Him one that was deaf, and a stutterer; and they begged Him to put His hand on him.
Mark 7:33 So He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers into his ears, and He spit, and touched his tongue;
Mark 7:34 then looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, ephphatha, that is, be opened.
Mark 7:35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.
Mark 7:36 Then He charged them that they should tell no one: but the more He charged them, the more abundantly they broadcasted it;
Mark 7:37 and were beyond measure astonished, saying, He has done all things well: He makes both the deaf to hear, and the mute to speak!
Mark 8:1 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said to them,
Mark 8:2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with Me three days, and have nothing to eat:
Mark 8:3 for if I send them away without food to their own houses, they will faint on the way: for some of them came from far.
Mark 8:4 Then His disciples answered Him, from where can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?
Mark 8:5 He asked them, how many loaves have you? And they said, seven.
Mark 8:6 So He commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and He took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and broke, and gave to His disciples to place before them; and they did place them before the people.
Mark 8:7 They had a few small fish: and He blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.
Mark 8:8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they gathered up the broken food that was left seven baskets.
Mark 8:9 For they that had eaten were about four thousand: and He sent them away.
Mark 8:10 Immediately He entered into a boat with His disciples and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
Mark 8:11 Then the Pharisees came out, and began to question Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, tempting Him.
Mark 8:12 But He sighed deeply in His spirit, and said, why does this generation seek after a sign? Truthfully, I say to you, there will be no sign given to this generation.
Mark 8:13 Then He left them and entering into the boat again departed to the other side.
Mark 8:14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they any in the boat with them except one loaf.
Mark 8:15 Then He charged them, saying, take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
Mark 8:16 So they reasoned among themselves, saying, it is because we have no bread.
Mark 8:17 When Jesus knew it, He said to them, why reason among yourselves, because you have no bread? Do you not yet realize, neither understand? Is your heart still hardened?
Mark 8:18 Having eyes, you see not? And having ears, you hear not? Do you not remember?
Mark 8:19 When I broke the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments you gathered up? They said to Him, twelve.
Mark 8:20 “And the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?” And they said to him, “seven.”
Mark 8:21 He said to them, how is it that you do not understand?
Mark 8:22 Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him and asked Him to touch him.
Mark 8:23 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town; and when He had spit on his eyes, and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
Mark 8:24 Then he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
Mark 8:25 After that He put his hands again on his eyes and made him look up: and he was restored and saw all things clearly.
Mark 8:26 Then He sent him away to his house, saying, neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
Mark 8:27 Now Jesus went out, and His disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and on the way He asked His disciples, saying to them, who do men say that I am?
Mark 8:28 So they answered, John the Immerser; but some say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.
Mark 8:29 He said to them, but who do you say that I am? So, Peter answered and said to Him, You are the Christ.
Mark 8:30 Then He charged them that they should tell no man about Him.
Mark 8:31 And He began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
Mark 8:32 He spoke that saying openly. And Peter took Him and began to rebuke Him.
Mark 8:33 But when He had turned about and looked on His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, you get behind Me, Satan: for you are minding not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men.
Mark 8:34 When He had called the people to Him with His disciples also, He said to them, whoever wants to come after Me, let him reject himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
Mark 8:35 For whoever will save his soul will lose it; but whoever will lose his soul for Me and the gospel, the same will save it.
Mark 8:36 For what will it profit a man, if he will gain the whole world, and loses his own soul?
Mark 8:37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
Mark 8:38 Therefore whoever will be ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also will the Son of man be ashamed, when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.
Mark 9:1 And He said to them, truthfully, I say to you, that there are some of them that stand here, who will not taste death, until they see the kingdom of God having come in power.
Mark 9:2 Now after six days Jesus takes with him Peter, and James, and John, and leads them up to a high mountain apart by themselves: and He was transfigured before them.
Mark 9:3 His clothing became shining, exceedingly white as snow; so, as no bleach on earth can whiten them.
Mark 9:4 Then there appeared to them Elijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
Mark 9:5 So Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
Mark 9:6 For he did not know what to say; for they were intensely afraid.
Mark 9:7 Then there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, this is My beloved Son: listen to Him.
Mark 9:8 Suddenly, when they had looked around, they saw no man anymore, except Jesus only with themselves.
Mark 9:9 Now as they came down from the mountain, He charged them that they should tell no one what things they had seen, until the Son of man had risen from the dead.
Mark 9:10 So they kept that saying among themselves, questioning one another what rising from the dead should mean.
Mark 9:11 Then they asked Him, and said, why do the scribes say that Elijah must first come?
Mark 9:12 Then He answered and told them, Elijah indeed is coming first, and restores all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that He must suffer many things, and be despised.
Mark 9:13 But I say to you, that Elijah has indeed come, and they have done to him whatever they desired, as it is written of him.
Mark 9:14 When He came to His disciples, He saw a great multitude around them, and the scribes arguing with them.
Mark 9:15 At once, all the people when they saw Him, were greatly amazed, and running toward Him, greeted Him.
Mark 9:16 Then He asked the scribes, what are you discussing with them?
Mark 9:17 Then one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought to You my son, who is possessed with a mute spirit;
Mark 9:18 whenever he seizes him, he tears him: and he foams out, and grinds with his teeth, and becomes stiff: and I spoke to Your disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
Mark 9:19 He answered him, and said, O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him to Me.
Mark 9:20 Then they brought him to Him: and when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him; and he fell on the ground, foaming at the mouth.
Mark 9:21 So He asked his father, how long ago was it since this came to him? He said, since childhood.
Mark 9:22 Frequently it has cast him into the fire, and into the water, to destroy him: but if You can do anything, have compassion on us, and help us.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, if you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
Mark 9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!
Mark 9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul spirit, saying to him, you mute and deaf spirit, I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
Mark 9:26 So the spirit cried, and convulsed him extremely, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; so much that many said, he is dead.
Mark 9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up; and he arose.
Mark 9:28 When He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him secretly, why could we not cast him out?
Mark 9:29 Then He said to them, this kind cannot come out by anything, but by prayer and fasting.
Mark 9:30 Then they departed from there and passed through Galilee; and He wanted not that any man should know it.
Mark 9:31 For He taught His disciples, and said to them, the Son of man is given into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and after He is killed, He will rise the third day.
Mark 9:32 But they did not understand that saying and were afraid to ask Him.
Mark 9:33 Then He came to Capernaum: and being in the house He asked them, what was it that you argued about among yourselves on the way?
Mark 9:34 But they held their peace: for on the way they had argued among themselves, who should be the greatest.
Mark 9:35 Then He sat down, and called the twelve, and said to them, if any man wants to be first, the same will be last of all, and servant of all.
Mark 9:36 Then He took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them,
Mark 9:37 whoever will receive one of such children in My name, receives Me: and whoever will receive Me, receives not Me, but Him that sent Me.
Mark 9:38 Then John answered Him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out demons in Your name, and he was not following us: and we prohibited him, because he was not following us.
Mark 9:39 But Jesus said, prohibit him not: for there is no man who will do a miracle in My name, that can easily afterwards speak evil of Me.
Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is for us.
Mark 9:41 For whoever will give you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, truthfully, I say to you, he will not lose his reward.
Mark 9:42 But whoever will stumble one of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone was hung around his neck, and he was cast into the sea.
Mark 9:43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off: it is better for you to enter into life dismembered, than having two hands to go into Gehenna, into the fire that is unquenchable:
Mark 9:44 [where their worm does not die, and the fire that is unquenchable.]
Mark 9:45 If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off: it is better for you to enter lame into life, than having two feet to be cast into Gehenna, into the fire that is unquenchable:
Mark 9:46 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
Mark 9:47 If your eye stumbles you, pluck it out: it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into the fire of Gehenna:
Mark 9:48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
Mark 9:49 For everyone will be salted with fire, and every sacrifice will be salted with salt.
Mark 9:50 Salt is good: but if the salt becomes saltless, in what will you restore its saltiness? Have salt in yourselves and have peace with one another.
Mark 10:1 Then He arose from there and came into the borders of Judea by the farther side of the Jordan: and the people gathered to Him again; and, as He was accustomed, He taught them again.
Mark 10:2 The Pharisees came to Him, and asked Him, Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife? Tempting Him.
Mark 10:3 So He answered and said to them, what did Moses command you?
Mark 10:4 They said, Moses permitted to write a certificate of divorce, and to send her away.
Mark 10:5 Then Jesus answered and said to them, for the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
Mark 10:7 For this reason will a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
Mark 10:8 and they two will be one flesh: so then they are no more two, but one flesh.
Mark 10:9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.
Mark 10:10 In the house His disciples asked Him again about the same matter.
Mark 10:11 So He said to them, whoever will divorce his wife, and marry another, commits adultery against her.
Mark 10:12 And if a woman will divorce her husband, and be married to another, she commits adultery.
Mark 10:13 Then they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them: and His disciples rebuked those that brought them.
Mark 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, He was very displeased, and said to them, permit the little children to come to Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Mark 10:15 truthfully, I say to you, whoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he will not enter in it.
Mark 10:16 So He took them up in His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them.
Mark 10:17 When He had gone out into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to Him, and asked Him, Good Master, what should I do that I may inherit infinite life?
Mark 10:18 So Jesus said to him, why do you call Me good? There is none good but One and that is God.
Mark 10:19 You know the commandments, do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not bear false witness, defraud not, honor your father and mother.
Mark 10:20 So he answered and said to Him, Master, all these have I kept from my youth.
Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said to him, one thing you lack: go your way, sell whatever you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.
Mark 10:22 But he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great wealth.
Mark 10:23 Then Jesus looked around, and said to His disciples, how with difficulty for those that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again, and said to them, children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
Mark 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Mark 10:26 So they were astonished beyond measure, saying among themselves who then can be saved?
Mark 10:27 But Jesus looking on them said, with men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Mark 10:28 Then Peter began to say to Him, Look, we have left all, and have followed You.
Mark 10:29 So Jesus answered and said, truthfully I say to you, There is no man that has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My sake, and the gospel’s,
Mark 10:30 but he will receive a hundred-fold now in this opportune time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, along with persecutions; and in the New Covenant Age to come; infinite life.
Mark 10:31 But many that are first will be last; and the last first.
Mark 10:32 As they were on the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. For He took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things were about to happen to Him,
Mark 10:33 saying, behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests, and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and will give Him to the nations:
Mark 10:34 they will mock Him, and will whip Him, and will spit on Him, and will kill Him: and the third day He will rise again.
Mark 10:35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, Master, we want You to do for us whatever we want.
Mark 10:36 So He said to them, what would you that I should do for you?
Mark 10:37 They said to Him, grant to us that we may sit, one on Your right hand, and the other on Your left hand, in Your glory.
Mark 10:38 But Jesus said to them, you know not what you ask: can you drink of the cup that I drink of? And be immersed with the immersion that I am immersed with?
Mark 10:39 They said to Him, we can. And Jesus said to them, you will indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the immersion that I am immersed with you will be immersed:
Mark 10:40 but to sit on My right hand and on My left hand is not Mine to give; but it will be given to them for who it is prepared.
Mark 10:41 When the ten heard it, they began to be very displeased with James and John.
Mark 10:42 But Jesus called them to Him, and said to them, you know that they who are of reputation to govern over the nations exercise dominion over them; and their great ones rule over them.
Mark 10:43 But not so will it be among you: but whoever will be great among you, will be your servant:
Mark 10:44 whoever of you will be great ones, will be a slave of all.
Mark 10:45 for even the Son of man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
Mark 10:46 Now they came to Jericho: and as He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
Mark 10:47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, You son of David, have mercy on me!
Mark 10:48 But many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, You son of David, have mercy on me!
Mark 10:49 So Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying to him, be of good comfort, rise; He calls you.
Mark 10:50 Then he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
Mark 10:51 And Jesus answered and said to him, what do you want Me to do for you? The blind man said to Him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
Mark 10:52 So Jesus said to him, go your way; your faith has made you whole. At once he received his sight, and followed Jesus on the way.
Mark 11:1 When they came close to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sent out two of His disciples,
Mark 11:2 and said to them, go your way into the village opposite you: and as soon as you be entered into it, you will find a colt tied, which not even one man sat; untie him, and bring him.
Mark 11:3 and if any man say to you, what is this you are doing? Say that the Lord has need of him; and immediately he will send him back here.
Mark 11:4 So they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door outside in a place where two ways met; and they untied him.
Mark 11:5 Then certain one stood there saying to them, what are you doing, untying the colt?
Mark 11:6 They said to them just as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
Mark 11:7 So they brought the colt to Jesus, and put their coats on it; and He sat on them.
Mark 11:8 Many spread their coats on the road: and others cut down branches off the trees, and scattered them on the road.
Mark 11:9 Then they that went ahead, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord!
Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest!
Mark 11:11 So Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when He had looked around on all things, and now the evening had come, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.
Mark 11:12 On the next day, when they had come from Bethany, He was hungry:
Mark 11:13 seeing in the distance a fig tree having leaves, He came, if perhaps He might find anything on it: but when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs.
Mark 11:14 Then Jesus answered and said to it, no one will eat fruit from you, from now on and into the new covenant age. And His disciples heard it.
Mark 11:15 They came to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast them out that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
Mark 11:16 and would not permit that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
Mark 11:17 Then He taught, saying to them, is it not written, My house will be called, the house of prayer for all nations? But you have made it a den of thieves.
Mark 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and they were striving to find a way to destroy Him: but they feared Him, because all the multitude were astonished at His teaching.
Mark 11:19 When evening had come, He went out of the city.
Mark 11:20 In the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
Mark 11:21 Then Peter remembering said to Him, Master, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered away.
Mark 11:22 Jesus answered and said to them, have faith in God.
Mark 11:23 For truthfully I say to you, that whoever will say to this mountain, you be removed, and you be cast into the sea; and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that those things which he says will come to pass; he will have whatever he says.
Mark 11:24 therefore I say to you, whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Mark 11:25 When you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any: that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
Mark 11:26 But if you do not forgive, neither will Your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Mark 11:27 They come again to Jerusalem: and as He was walking in the temple, there came to Him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
Mark 11:28 and said to Him, by what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority to do these things?
Mark 11:29 Then Jesus answered and said to them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
Mark 11:30 The immersion of John, was it from heaven, or of men? Answer Me.
Mark 11:31 So they reasoned with themselves, saying, if we will say, from heaven; He will say, why then did you not believe him?
Mark 11:32 But if we will say, of men; they feared the people: for all men considered John, that he was a prophet indeed.
Mark 11:33 Then they answered and said to Jesus, we cannot tell. And Jesus answered and said to them, neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.
Mark 12:1 Then He began to speak to them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and dug a place for the wine press, and built a watch tower, and leased it out to some vinedressers, and went into a far country.
Mark 12:2 And at the proper season he sent to the vinedressers, a slave that he might receive from the vinedressers of the fruit of the vineyard.
Mark 12:3 But they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
Mark 12:4 Yet again he sent to them another slave; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully treated.
Mark 12:5 Yet again he sent another; and him they murdered, and many others; beating some, and murdering some.
Mark 12:6 Therefore having yet one son, his well-beloved, he sent him also last to them, saying, they will respect my son.
Mark 12:7 But those vinedressers said among themselves, this is the heir; come, let us murder him, and the inheritance will be ours.
Mark 12:8 So they took him, and murdered him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
Mark 12:9 What will therefore the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vinedressers, and will give the vineyard to others.
Mark 12:10 Have you not read this scripture; the stone which the builders rejected has become chief cornerstone:
Mark 12:11 this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?
Mark 12:12 Then they sought to lay hold on Him, but feared the people: for they knew that He had spoken the parable against them: and they left Him, and went their way.
Mark 12:13 So they send to Him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch Him in His words.
Mark 12:14 When they had come, they say to Him, Master, we know that You are true, and are not anxious about anyone: for You regard not the approval of men, but teach the way of God in reality: is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
Mark 12:15 Will we give, or will we not give? But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, why do you tempt Me? Bring Me a denarius, that I may see it.
Mark 12:16 Then they brought it. And He said to them, whose is this image and inscription? They said to Him, Caesar’s.
Mark 12:17 So Jesus answered and said to them, render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. So they marveled at Him.
Mark 12:18 Then came to Him the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and they asked Him, saying,
Mark 12:19 Master, Moses wrote to us, if a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up children for his brother.
Mark 12:20 Now there were seven brothers: and the first took a wife, and dying left no children.
Mark 12:21 So the second took her, and died, neither left any children: and the third likewise.
Mark 12:22 And the seven had her, and left no children: last of all the woman died also.
Mark 12:23 Therefore in the resurrection, when they will rise, whose wife will she be? For the seven had her as a wife.
Mark 12:24 Then Jesus answered and said to them, therefore do you not error, because you know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God?
Mark 12:25 For when they will rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
Mark 12:26 And as concerning the dead, that they rise: have you not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke to him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: Therefore you do greatly error.
Mark 12:28 Then one of the scribes came, having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, which is the first commandment of all?
Mark 12:29 Jesus answered him, the first of all the commandments is, hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord:
Mark 12:30 and you will love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment.
Mark 12:31 And the second is similar, namely this, you will love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
Mark 12:32 So the scribe said to Him, well, Master, You have said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but He:
Mark 12:33 to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole ascension offerings and sacrifices.
Mark 12:34 When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, you are not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that dared ask Him any question.
Mark 12:35 Then Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, why do the scribes say that Christ is the son of David?
Mark 12:36 For David himself said in the Holy Spirit, the LORD said to My Lord, sit on My right, until I make Your enemies Your footstool.
Mark 12:37 Therefore David himself calls Him Lord; and how is He then his Son? And the common people heard Him gladly.
Mark 12:38 He said to them in His teaching, beware of the scribes, who love to go in fine clothing, and love greetings in the marketplaces,
Mark 12:39 and the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
Mark 12:40 who devour widows’ houses, and for a show make long prayers: these will receive greater condemnation.
Mark 12:41 Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
Mark 12:42 Then there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a small fraction of a denarius.
Mark 12:43 So He called to Him His disciples, and said to them, truthfully I say to you, that this poor widow has cast more in than all they which have cast into the treasury:
Mark 12:44 for all they that cast in was of their abundance; but she of her poverty did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
Mark 13:1 Then as he went out of the temple, one of His disciples said to Him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
Mark 13:2 And Jesus answered and said to him, you see these great buildings? There will not be left one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.
Mark 13:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him secretly,
Mark 13:4 tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things are about to be fulfilled?
Mark 13:5 And Jesus answered them and began to say, take heed unless anyone deceive you:
Mark 13:6 for many will come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and will deceive many.
Mark 13:7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled: for such things must be; but the end will not be yet.
Mark 13:8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there will be earthquakes in different places, and there will be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of the pain of childbirth.
Mark 13:9 Keep an eye out for one another: for they will deliver you up to the Sanhedrin; and in the synagogues and you will be beaten: and you will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them.
Mark 13:10 And this gospel must first be proclaimed among all nations.
Mark 13:11 But when they will lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what you will speak, but whatever will be given to you in that hour, you speak that: for it is not you that speak, but the Holy Spirit.
Mark 13:12 Now brother will betray brother to death, and father his child; and children will rise up against their parents, and will cause them to be put to death.
Mark 13:13 For you will be hated by all men for My name’s sake: but he that will endure to the end, the same will be saved.
Mark 13:14 But when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it should not, (let him that reads, understand), then let them that are in Judea flee to the mountains:
Mark 13:15 and let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter in it, to take anything out of his house:
Mark 13:16 and let him that is in the field not return to grab up his clothes.
Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child and to them that nurse babies in those days!
Mark 13:18 And you pray that your flight will not be in the winter.
Mark 13:19 For in those days there will be tribulation, which had not happened from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, at this time and will not ever be.
Mark 13:20 For unless that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake whom He has chosen, He has shortened the days.
Mark 13:21 Then if any man will say to you, Look, here is Christ; or, look, He is there; believe him not:
Mark 13:22 for false Christs and false prophets will rise, and will show signs and wonders, to deceive, if it were possible, even the elect.
Mark 13:23 But take you heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that same tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not reflect her light,
Mark 13:25 for the stars of the heavens will be falling, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
Mark 13:26 Then they will see the Son of man coming in the cloud with great power and glory.
Mark 13:27 Then will He send His angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the extreme part of the earth to the extreme part of the heavens.
Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when her branch is yet tender, and puts out leaves, you know that summer is near:
Mark 13:29 So you in like manner, when you will see these things come to pass, know that it is close, even at the doors.
Mark 13:30 Truthfully I say to you, that this generation will not pass, until all these things are done.
Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth will pass away: but My words will not pass away.
Mark 13:32 But of that day and that season no man knows, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Mark 13:33 You take heed, watch and pray: for you do not know when the time is.
Mark 13:34 For the Son of Man is like a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.
Mark 13:35 Therefore watch: for you do not know when the master of the house comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at the rooster crowing, or in the morning:
Mark 13:36 unless coming unexpectantly he finds you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all, watch!
Mark 14:1 After two days was the Feast of the Passover, and of Unleavened Bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by trickery, and put Him to death.
Mark 14:2 But they said, not on the feast day, unless there be a riot by the people.
Mark 14:3 Being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as He sat to eat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she broke the box, and poured it on His head.
Mark 14:4 There were some that had resentment within themselves, and said, why was this waste of the ointment made?
Mark 14:5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and have been given to the poor. So they murmured against her.
Mark 14:6 But Jesus said, leave her alone; why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me.
Mark 14:7 For you have the poor with you at all times, and whenever you want you may do them good: but Me you will not have at all times.
Mark 14:8 She has done what she could: she is come beforehand to anoint My body for burial.
Mark 14:9 Truthfully, I say to you, wherever this gospel will be preached throughout the whole world, this also what she has done will be spoken of for a memorial of her.
Mark 14:10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests, to betray Him to them.
Mark 14:11 When they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. So, he sought how he might conveniently betray Him.
Mark 14:12 Now the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover, His disciples said to Him, where do You want us to go and prepare, that You may eat the Passover?
Mark 14:13 He sent out two of His disciples, and said to them, go into the city, and there you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water: follow him.
Mark 14:14 Wherever he will go in, you say to the master of the house, the Master says, where is the guest chamber, where I will eat the Passover with My disciples?
Mark 14:15 He will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
Mark 14:16 So His disciples went out, and came into the city, and found as He had said to them: and they made ready the Passover.
Mark 14:17 In the evening He came with the twelve.
Mark 14:18 Now as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, truthfully I say to you, one of you who eats with Me will betray Me.
Mark 14:19 Then they began to be distressed, and to say to Him one by one, is it I? And another said, is it I?
Mark 14:20 So He answered and said to them, it is one of the twelve, that dips with Me in the dish.
Mark 14:21 The Son of man indeed goes, as it is written of Him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! Better were it for that man if he had never been born.
Mark 14:22 As they ate, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave to them, and said, take, eat: this is My body.
Mark 14:23 And He took the cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
Mark 14:24 And He said to them, this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
Mark 14:25 Truthfully, I say to you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
Mark 14:26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
Mark 14:27 Then Jesus said to them, all of you will stumble because of Me this night: for it is written, I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.
Mark 14:28 But after I have risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
Mark 14:29 But Peter said to Him, although all will stumble, yet I will not.
Mark 14:30 Jesus said to him, truthfully I say to you, that this day, even in this night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times.
Mark 14:31 But he spoke the more vehemently, if I should die with You, I will not deny You in any way. Likewise also they all said.
Mark 14:32 They came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and He said to His disciples, sit here, while I will pray.
Mark 14:33 And He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be troubled, and to be very distressed;
Mark 14:34 Then He said to them, my soul is exceedingly sorrowful to death: wait here, and watch.
Mark 14:35 So He went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
Mark 14:36 For He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible for You; take away this cup from Me: nevertheless not what I will, but what You will.
Mark 14:37 Then He came, and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, Simon, do you sleep? Could you not watch one hour?
Mark 14:38 Watch and pray, unless you enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is powerless.
Mark 14:39 Yet again He went away, and prayed, and spoke the same words.
Mark 14:40 When He returned, He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy, neither did they know what to answer Him.
Mark 14:41 Then he came the third time, and said to them, sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Mark 14:42 Rise up let us go; look, he that betrays Me is at hand.
Mark 14:43 Immediately, while He yet spoke, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
Mark 14:44 Now he that betrayed Him had given them a signal, saying, whomever I will kiss, that same is He; take Him, and lead Him away safely.
Mark 14:45 As soon as he had come, he went immediately to Him, and said, Master, Master; and kissed Him.
Mark 14:46 So they laid their hands on Him, and took Him.
Mark 14:47 But one of them that stood by drew a sword, and struck a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
Mark 14:48 Then Jesus answered and said to them, have you come out, as against a thief, with swords and with clubs to take Me?
Mark 14:49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you did not take hold of Me: but the Scriptures must be fulfilled.
Mark 14:50 Then they all left Him, and fled.
Mark 14:51 Now there followed Him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
Mark 14:52 Then he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
Mark 14:53 So they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
Mark 14:54 Yet Peter followed him from a distance, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
Mark 14:55 Now the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put Him to death; and found none.
Mark 14:56 For many gave false witness against Him, but their witness agreed not together.
Mark 14:57 Then there arose certain, and gave false witness against Him, saying,
Mark 14:58 we heard Him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
Mark 14:59 But neither did their witness agree together.
Mark 14:60 So the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, you have nothing to reply? What is it which these witness against You?
Mark 14:61 But He held His peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, and said to Him, are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
Mark 14:62 Jesus said, I am: and you will see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the cloud of heaven.
Mark 14:63 Then the high priest tore his clothes, and said, why do we need any further witnesses?
Mark 14:64 You have heard the blasphemy: what do you think? And they all condemned Him to be guilty of death.
Mark 14:65 Some began to spit on Him, and to cover His face, and to beat Him, and to say to Him, prophesy: and the servants did strike Him with the palms of their hands.
Mark 14:66 As Peter was below in the palace, there came one of the servant girls of the high priest:
Mark 14:67 when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked on him, and said, and you also were with Jesus of Nazareth.
Mark 14:68 But he denied, saying, I do not know, I neither understand what you say. And he went out into the porch; and the rooster crowed.
Mark 14:69 Then a servant girl saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, this is one of them.
Mark 14:70 But he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilean, and your speech agrees to that.
Mark 14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I do not know this Man of whom you speak.
Mark 14:72 And the second time the rooster crowed. And Peter remembered the word that Jesus said to him, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times. When he thought on this, he wept.
Mark 15:1 Immediately in the morning the chief priests held a meeting with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried Him away, and delivered Him to Pilate.
Mark 15:2 Then Pilate asked Him, Are you the King of the Jews? He answered and said to them, you say it.
Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused Him of many things: but He answered nothing.
Mark 15:4 Then Pilate asked Him again, saying, answer you nothing? Behold how many things they witness against You.
Mark 15:5 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marveled.
Mark 15:6 Now at that feast he released to them one prisoner, whoever they desired.
Mark 15:7 There was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made rebellion with him, who had committed murder in the rebellion.
Mark 15:8 So the multitude cried aloud began to ask him to do as he had always done for them.
Mark 15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?
Mark 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered Him because of envy.
Mark 15:11 But the chief priests persuaded the people, that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
Mark 15:12 Pilate answered and said again to them, what do you want me to do to Him, whom you call the King of the Jews?
Mark 15:13 So they cried out again, crucify Him!
Mark 15:14 Then Pilate said to them, why, what evil has He done? Yet they cried out the more exceedingly, crucify Him!
Mark 15:15 So Pilate, willing to calm the people, released Barabbas to them, and delivered Jesus, when he had whipped Him, in order to be crucified.
Mark 15:16 Then the soldiers led Him away into the hall of the governor’s palace; and they called together the whole garrison.
Mark 15:17 So they clothed Him with purple, and twisted a crown of thorns, and put it about His head,
Mark 15:18 and began to salute Him, Hail, King of the Jews!
Mark 15:19 Then they struck Him on the head with a reed, and spat on Him, and bowing their knees worshiped Him.
Mark 15:20 When they had mocked Him, they took off the purple from Him, and put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him.
Mark 15:21 For they compelled one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry His cross.
Mark 15:22 And they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, the place of a Skull.
Mark 15:23 Then they gave Him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but He received it not.
Mark 15:24 When they had crucified Him, they divided His clothes, casting lots for them, what every man should take.
Mark 15:25 Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him.
Mark 15:26 And the inscription of His accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Mark 15:27 And with Him they crucified two thieves; the one on His right hand, and the other on His left.
Mark 15:28 So the scripture was fulfilled, which said, and He was numbered with the transgressors.
Mark 15:29 And they that passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, You that destroys the temple, and builds it in three days,
Mark 15:30 Save Yourself, and come down from the cross.
Mark 15:31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; Himself He cannot save.
Mark 15:32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with Him reviled Him.
Mark 15:33 When the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is, being interpreted, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?
Mark 15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, He calls Elijah.
Mark 15:36 Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink, saying, Let Him alone; let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down.
Mark 15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
Mark 15:38 And the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom.
Mark 15:39 When the centurion, which stood opposite Him, saw that He so cried out, and gave up the ghost, He said, Truly this man was the Son of God!
Mark 15:40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
Mark 15:41 Who also, when He was in Galilee, followed Him, and served Him; and many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
Mark 15:42 Now when the evening had come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath,
Mark 15:43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honorable council member, who also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly to Pilate, and requested the body of Jesus.
Mark 15:44 Pilate wondered if He were already dead: and calling to him the centurion, he asked him whether He had been dead for some time.
Mark 15:45 When he knew it by the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
Mark 15:46 Then he bought fine linen, and took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen, and laid Him in a tomb which was cut out of a rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb.
Mark 15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where He was laid.
Mark 16:1 When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
Mark 16:2 Very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came to the tomb at the rising of the sun.
Mark 16:3 For they said among themselves, who will roll us away the stone from the door of the tomb?
Mark 16:4 When they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
Mark 16:5 Then entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were frightened.
Mark 16:6 But he said to them, be not frightened: You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: He is risen! He is not here: Behold the place where they laid Him.
Mark 16:7 But go your way, tell His disciples and Peter that He goes before you into Galilee: there will you see Him, as He said to you.
Mark 16:8 So they went out quickly, and fled from the tomb; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they anything to any man; for they were afraid.
Mark 16:9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of who He had cast seven demons.
Mark 16:10 She went and told them that had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
Mark 16:11 Then they, when they had heard that He was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
Mark 16:12 After that He appeared in another form to two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
Mark 16:13 And they went and told it to the others: neither did they believe them.
Mark 16:14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven as they sat to eat, and reproved their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not those who had seen Him after He was risen.
Mark 16:15 And He said to them, go into the whole world, and preach the gospel to all creation.
Mark 16:16 He that believes and is immersed will be saved; but he that believes not will be condemned.
Mark 16:17 And these signs will follow them that believe; in My name will they cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 They will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
Mark 16:19 Then after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat at the right hand of God.
Mark 16:20 So they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
