The Gospel According To St. Mark

John Bunyan at the CrossMark 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 thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mark 1:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of
the Lord, make his paths straight.

Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of
repentance for the remission of sins.

Mark 1:5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of
Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing
their sins.

Mark 1:6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin
about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;

Mark 1:7 And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me,
the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.

Mark 1:8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you
with the Holy Ghost.

Mark 1:9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of
Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

Mark 1:10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens
opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:

Mark 1:11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mark 1:12 And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.

Mark 1:13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan;
and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

Mark 1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at
hand: repent ye, 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 fishers.

Mark 1:17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to
become fishers of men.

Mark 1:18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

Mark 1:19 And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son
of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their

Mark 1:20 And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee
in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

Mark 1:21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day
he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

Mark 1:22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as
one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

Mark 1:23 And 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 thee, thou Jesus of
Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One
of God.

Mark 1:25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of

Mark 1:26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud
voice, he came out of him.

Mark 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among
themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with
authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

Mark 1:28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region
round about Galilee.

Mark 1:29 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they
entered into 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 anon they tell
him of her.

Mark 1:31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and
immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

Mark 1:32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that
were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

Mark 1:33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.

Mark 1:34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out
many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mark 1:35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went
out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

Mark 1:36 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

Mark 1:37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for

Mark 1:38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may
preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

Mark 1:39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and
cast out devils.

Mark 1:40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down
to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mark 1:41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched
him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

Mark 1:42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed
from him, and he was cleansed.

Mark 1:43 And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

Mark 1:44 And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy
way, show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things
which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Mark 1:45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad
the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but
was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.

Mark 2:1 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was
noised that he was in the house.

Mark 2:2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there
was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he
preached the word unto them.

Mark 2:3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was
borne of four.

Mark 2:4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they
uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down
the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy,
Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

Mark 2:6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning
in their hearts,

Mark 2:7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but
God only?

Mark 2:8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so
reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in
your hearts?

Mark 2:9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be
forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

Mark 2:10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to
forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

Mark 2:11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into
thine house.

Mark 2:12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before
them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We
never saw it on this fashion.

Mark 2:13 And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude
resorted unto him, and he taught them.

Mark 2:14 And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at
the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed

Mark 2:15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many
publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for
there were many, and they followed him.

Mark 2:16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and
sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh
with publicans and sinners?

Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole 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 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and
they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees
fast, but thy disciples fast not?

Mark 2:19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber
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 shall be taken away
from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

Mark 2:21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else
the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made

Mark 2:22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine
doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be
marred: 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 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the
sabbath day that which is not lawful?

Mark 2:25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he
had need, and was an hungred, 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 them which were with him?

Mark 2:27 And he said unto 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 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day;
that they might accuse him.

Mark 3:3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

Mark 3:4 And he saith unto 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 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being
grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth
thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the

Mark 3:6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway 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 Judaea,

Mark 3:8 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and
they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great
things he did, came unto him.

Mark 3:9 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him
because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

Mark 3:10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to
touch him, as many as had plagues.

Mark 3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and
cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

Mark 3:12 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

Mark 3:13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he
would: and they came unto him.

Mark 3:14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he
might send them forth to preach,

Mark 3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

Mark 3:16 And 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, which also betrayed him: and they went into an

Mark 3:20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so
much as eat bread.

Mark 3:21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on
him: for they said, He is beside himself.

Mark 3:22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.

Mark 3:23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How
can Satan cast out Satan?

Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot

Mark 3:25 And 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 hath an end.

Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods,
except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

Mark 3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of
men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

Mark 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

Mark 3:30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Mark 3:31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing
without, sent unto him, calling him.

Mark 3:32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold,
thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

Mark 3:33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

Mark 3:34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said,
Behold my mother and my brethren!

Mark 3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother,
and my sister, and mother.

Mark 4:1 And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered
unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the
sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

Mark 4:2 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in
his doctrine,

Mark 4:3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

Mark 4:4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and
the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

Mark 4:5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and
immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

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 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up
and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an

Mark 4:9 And he said unto them, He that hath 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 unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of
the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, 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; lest at any time they should be converted, and their
sins should be forgiven them.

Mark 4:13 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will
ye know all parables?

Mark 4:14 The sower soweth the word.

Mark 4:15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but
when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that
was sown in their hearts.

Mark 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who,
when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

Mark 4:17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time:
afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake,
immediately they are offended.

Mark 4:18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the

Mark 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and
the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh

Mark 4:20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the
word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and
some an hundred.

Mark 4:21 And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a
bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?

Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither
was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Mark 4:23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 4:24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure
ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be

Mark 4:25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not,
from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

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 knoweth not how.

Mark 4:28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade,
then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

Mark 4:29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the
sickle, because the harvest is come.

Mark 4:30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with
what comparison shall we compare it?

Mark 4:31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the
earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

Mark 4:32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all
herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge
under the shadow of it.

Mark 4:33 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they
were able to hear it.

Mark 4:34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were
alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let
us pass over unto the other side.

Mark 4:36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as
he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

Mark 4:37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the
ship, so that it was now full.

Mark 4:38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and
they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace,
be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye
have no faith?

Mark 4:41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner
of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country
of the Gadarenes.

Mark 5:2 And when he was come out of the ship, 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 that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and
the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces:
neither could any man tame him.

Mark 5:5 And 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 thee,
Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment
me not.

Mark 5:8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

Mark 5:9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My
name is Legion: for we are many.

Mark 5:10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of
the country.

Mark 5:11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine

Mark 5:12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine,
that we may enter into them.

Mark 5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went
out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place
into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

Mark 5:14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in
the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.

Mark 5:15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the
devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and
they were afraid.

Mark 5:16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was
possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

Mark 5:17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

Mark 5:18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed
with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

Mark 5:19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy
friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath
had compassion on thee.

Mark 5:20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great
things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.

Mark 5:21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side,
much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.

Mark 5:22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue,
Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

Mark 5:23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the
point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be
healed; and she shall live.

Mark 5:24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and
thronged him.

Mark 5:25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

Mark 5:26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all
that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

Mark 5:27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched
his garment.

Mark 5:28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

Mark 5:29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she
felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

Mark 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out
of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Mark 5:31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude
thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

Mark 5:32 And he looked round about 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 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go
in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Mark 5:35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's
house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master
any further?

Mark 5:36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the
ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

Mark 5:37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and
John the brother of James.

Mark 5:38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and
seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

Mark 5:39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado,
and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

Mark 5:40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out,
he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with
him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

Mark 5:41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha
cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

Mark 5:42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the
age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

Mark 5:43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and
commanded that something should be given her to eat.

Mark 6:1 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his
disciples follow him.

Mark 6:2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the
synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this
man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even
such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

Mark 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James,
and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And
they were offended at him.

Mark 6:4 But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in
his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

Mark 6:5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands
upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

Mark 6:6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about
the villages, teaching.

Mark 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by
two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Mark 6:8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey,
save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

Mark 6:9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

Mark 6:10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an
house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

Mark 6:11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart
thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them.
Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in
the day of judgment, than for that city.

Mark 6:12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

Mark 6:13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that
were sick, and healed them.

Mark 6:14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and
he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty
works do show forth themselves in him.

Mark 6:15 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a
prophet, or as one of the prophets.

Mark 6:16 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I
beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

Mark 6:17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon 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 unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have
thy brother's wife.

Mark 6:19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have
killed him; but she could not:

Mark 6:20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy,
and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him

Mark 6:21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday
made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;

Mark 6:22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced,
and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel,
Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

Mark 6:23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will
give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

Mark 6:24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask?
And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

Mark 6:25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked,
saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the

Mark 6:26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for
their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

Mark 6:27 And 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 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and
the damsel gave it to her mother.

Mark 6:29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his
corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

Mark 6:30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told
him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

Mark 6:31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert
place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no
leisure so much as to eat.

Mark 6:32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.

Mark 6:33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran
afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much 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 And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him,
and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:

Mark 6:36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and
into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

Mark 6:37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say
unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them
to eat?

Mark 6:38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when
they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

Mark 6:39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the
green grass.

Mark 6:40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

Mark 6:41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he
looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his
disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

Mark 6:42 And they did all eat, and were filled.

Mark 6:43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the

Mark 6:44 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

Mark 6:45 And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship,
and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the

Mark 6:46 And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to

Mark 6:47 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and
he alone on the land.

Mark 6:48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto
them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking
upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

Mark 6:49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had
been a spirit, and cried out:

Mark 6:50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked
with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

Mark 6:51 And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and
they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

Mark 6:52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart
was hardened.

Mark 6:53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of
Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

Mark 6:54 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew

Mark 6:55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry
about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

Mark 6:56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or
country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might
touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him
were made whole.

Mark 7:1 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the
scribes, which came from Jerusalem.

Mark 7:2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled,
that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

Mark 7:3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands
oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

Mark 7:4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not.
And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the
washing of cups, and pots, brazen vessels, and of tables.

Mark 7:5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy
disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with
unwashen hands?

Mark 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you
hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but
their heart is far from me.

Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.

Mark 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of
men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God,
that ye may keep your own tradition.

Mark 7:10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso
curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

Mark 7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is
Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
he shall be free.

Mark 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his

Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition,
which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Mark 7:14 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them,
Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:

Mark 7:15 There is nothing from without 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 have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 7:17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his
disciples asked him concerning the parable.

Mark 7:18 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do
ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it
cannot defile him;

Mark 7:19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and
goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

Mark 7:20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the

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 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and
Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could
not be hid.

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 besought
him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

Mark 7:27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it
is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.

Mark 7:28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under
the table eat of the children's crumbs.

Mark 7:29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is
gone out of thy daughter.

Mark 7:30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out,
and her daughter laid upon the bed.

Mark 7:31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came
unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.

Mark 7:32 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment
in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.

Mark 7:33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into
his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

Mark 7:34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him,
Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

Mark 7:35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue
was loosed, and he spake plain.

Mark 7:36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he
charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;

Mark 7:37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all
things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

Mark 8:1 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to
eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto 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 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will
faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.

Mark 8:4 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these
men with bread here in the wilderness?

Mark 8:5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.

Mark 8:6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took
the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set
before them; and they did set them before the people.

Mark 8:7 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to
set them also before them.

Mark 8:8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken
meat that was left seven baskets.

Mark 8:9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them

Mark 8:10 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and
came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

Mark 8:11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him,
seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

Mark 8:12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this
generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be
given unto this generation.

Mark 8:13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the
other side.

Mark 8:14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in
the ship with them more than one loaf.

Mark 8:15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of
the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

Mark 8:16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have
no bread.

Mark 8:17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because
ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart
yet hardened?

Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye
not remember?

Mark 8:19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets
full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.

Mark 8:20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of
fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.

Mark 8:21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

Mark 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him,
and besought him to touch him.

Mark 8:23 And 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 upon him, he asked
him if he saw ought.

Mark 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.

Mark 8:25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look
up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

Mark 8:26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the
town, nor tell it to any in the town.

Mark 8:27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea
Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men
say that I am?

Mark 8:28 And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and
others, One of the prophets.

Mark 8:29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter
answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.

Mark 8:30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of 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 And he spake 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, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the
things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

Mark 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples
also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever
shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?

Mark 8:37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this
adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed,
when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Mark 9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of
them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the
kingdom of God come with power.

Mark 9:2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and
John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he
was transfigured before them.

Mark 9:3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no
fuller on earth can white them.

Mark 9:4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were
talking with Jesus.

Mark 9:5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to
be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses,
and one for Elias.

Mark 9:6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.

Mark 9:7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out
of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Mark 9:8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any
more, save Jesus only with themselves.

Mark 9:9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they
should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen
from the dead.

Mark 9:10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with
another what the rising from the dead should mean.

Mark 9:11 And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must
first come?

Mark 9:12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and
restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must
suffer many things, and be set at nought.

Mark 9:13 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done
unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

Mark 9:14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about
them, and the scribes questioning with them.

Mark 9:15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly
amazed, and running to him saluted him.

Mark 9:16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

Mark 9:17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought
unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

Mark 9:18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and
gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that
they should cast him out; and they could not.

Mark 9:19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long
shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.

Mark 9:20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway
the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

Mark 9:21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto
him? And he said, Of a child.

Mark 9:22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters,
to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and
help us.

Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are
possible to him that believeth.

Mark 9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with
tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Mark 9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked
the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee,
come out of him, and enter no more into him.

Mark 9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and
he was as one dead; insomuch 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 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him
privately, Why could not we cast him out?

Mark 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by
prayer and fasting.

Mark 9:30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would
not that any man should know it.

Mark 9:31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is
delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is
killed, he shall rise the third day.

Mark 9:32 But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

Mark 9:33 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them,
What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?

Mark 9:34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among
themselves, who should be the greatest.

Mark 9:35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If
any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

Mark 9:36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he
had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

Mark 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth
me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

Mark 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out
devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he
followeth not us.

Mark 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do
a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.

Mark 9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name,
because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his

Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe
in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and
he were cast into the sea.

Mark 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to
enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire
that never shall be quenched:

Mark 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to
enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire
that never shall be quenched:

Mark 9:46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee
to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast
into hell fire:

Mark 9:48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall
be salted with salt.

Mark 9:50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith
will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Mark 10:1 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by
the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he
was wont, he taught them again.

Mark 10:2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a
man to put away his wife? tempting him.

Mark 10:3 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

Mark 10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and
to put her away.

Mark 10:5 And Jesus answered and said unto 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

Mark 10:7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave
to his wife;

Mark 10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain,
but one flesh.

Mark 10:9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mark 10:10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter

Mark 10:11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and
marry another, committeth adultery against her.

Mark 10:12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to
another, she committeth adultery.

Mark 10:13 And 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 much displeased, and said unto
them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of
such is the kingdom of God.

Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of
God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Mark 10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and
blessed them.

Mark 10:17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running,
and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may
inherit eternal life?

Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none
good but one, that is, God.

Mark 10:19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not
kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father
and mother.

Mark 10:20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I
observed from my youth.

Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing
thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and
thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow

Mark 10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had
great possessions.

Mark 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How
hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus
answereth again, and saith unto 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 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves,
Who then can be saved?

Mark 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but
not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Mark 10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have
followed thee.

Mark 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no
man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or
wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

Mark 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and
brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with
persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Mark 10:31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

Mark 10:32 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went
before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And
he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen
unto him,

Mark 10:33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall
be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall
condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:

Mark 10:34 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit
upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Mark 10:35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying,
Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

Mark 10:36 And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

Mark 10:37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy
right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

Mark 10:38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink
of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am
baptized with?

Mark 10:39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye
shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am
baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

Mark 10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to
give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

Mark 10:41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with
James and John.

Mark 10:42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that
they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over
them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.

Mark 10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great
among you, shall be your minister:

Mark 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to
minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mark 10:46 And 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 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry
out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

Mark 10:48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried
the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

Mark 10:49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they
call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth

Mark 10:50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

Mark 10:51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I
should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive
my sight.

Mark 10:52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee
whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Mark 11:1 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany,
at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

Mark 11:2 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against
you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon
never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

Mark 11:3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord
hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

Mark 11:4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door
without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

Mark 11:5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye,
loosing the colt?

Mark 11:6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let
them go.

Mark 11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on
him; and he sat upon him.

Mark 11:8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down
branches off the trees, and strowed them in the way.

Mark 11:9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying,
Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the
name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

Mark 11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when
he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he
went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was

Mark 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply
he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but
leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

Mark 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee
hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

Mark 11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and
began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the
tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

Mark 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through
the temple.

Mark 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house
shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den
of thieves.

Mark 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they
might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished
at his doctrine.

Mark 11:19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.

Mark 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree
dried up from the roots.

Mark 11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold,
the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this
mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt
in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to
pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye
pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any:
that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in
heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mark 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the
temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Mark 11:28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and
who gave thee this authority to do these things?

Mark 11:29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one
question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these

Mark 11:30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.

Mark 11:31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From
heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?

Mark 11:32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men
counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.

Mark 11:33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus
answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these

Mark 12:1 And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted
a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and
built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.

Mark 12:2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he
might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.

Mark 12:3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.

Mark 12:4 And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast
stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.

Mark 12:5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others;
beating some, and killing some.

Mark 12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also
last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.

Mark 12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir;
come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.

Mark 12:8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the

Mark 12:9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and
destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

Mark 12:10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders
rejected is become the head of the corner:

Mark 12:11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mark 12:12 And 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 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the
Herodians, to catch him in his words.

Mark 12:14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that
thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of
men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to
Caesar, or not?

Mark 12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their
hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it

Mark 12:16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image
and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.

Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things
that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at

Mark 12:18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no
resurrection; and they asked him, saying,

Mark 12:19 Master, Moses wrote unto 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 seed unto his brother.

Mark 12:20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and
dying left no seed.

Mark 12:21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and
the third likewise.

Mark 12:22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman
died also.

Mark 12:23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife
shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.

Mark 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err,
because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?

Mark 12:25 For when they shall 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 touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the
book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto 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: ye
therefore do greatly err.

Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and 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 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is,
Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with
all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the
first commandment.

Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the
truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

Mark 12:33 And 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 neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and

Mark 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him,
Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him
any question.

Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How
say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?

Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my
Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Mark 12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then
his son? And the common people heard him gladly.

Mark 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes,
which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,

Mark 12:39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at

Mark 12:40 Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long
prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the
people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

Mark 12:42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites,
which make a farthing.

Mark 12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily
I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which
have cast into the treasury:

Mark 12:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want
did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

Mark 13:1 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto
him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!

Mark 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great
buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be
thrown down.

Mark 13:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple,
Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

Mark 13:4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign
when all these things shall be fulfilled?

Mark 13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man
deceive you:

Mark 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall
deceive many.

Mark 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not
troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

Mark 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines
and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to
councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought
before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

Mark 13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought
beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever
shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak,
but the Holy Ghost.

Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father
the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause
them to be put to death.

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that
shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by
Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth
understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house,
neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

Mark 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take
up his garment.

Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck
in those days!

Mark 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.

Mark 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the
beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh
should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath
shortened the days.

Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo,
he is there; believe him not:

Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show
signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

Mark 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in
heaven shall be shaken.

Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with
great power and glory.

Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his
elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the
uttermost part of heaven.

Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

Mark 13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to
pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Mark 13:30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till
all these things be done.

Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass

Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels
which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Mark 13:34 For the Son of man is as 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 porter to watch.

Mark 13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house
cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

Mark 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto 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
craft, and put him to death.

Mark 14:2 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of
the people.

Mark 14:3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at
meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very
precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

Mark 14:4 And there were some that had indignation 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 pence, and
have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.

Mark 14:6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath
wrought a good work on me.

Mark 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye
may do them good: but me ye have not always.

Mark 14:8 She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my
body to the burying.

Mark 14:9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached
throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of
for a memorial of her.

Mark 14:10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief
priests, to betray him unto them.

Mark 14:11 And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him
money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.

Mark 14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the
passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare
that thou mayest eat the passover?

Mark 14:13 And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them,
Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of
water: follow him.

Mark 14:14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the
house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the
passover with my disciples?

Mark 14:15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared:
there make ready for us.

Mark 14:16 And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found
as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

Mark 14:17 And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.

Mark 14:18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you,
One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.

Mark 14:19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is
it I? and another said, Is it I?

Mark 14:20 And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that
dippeth with me in the dish.

Mark 14:21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to
that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he
had never been born.

Mark 14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake 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 unto them, This is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many.

Mark 14:25 Verily I say unto 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 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of

Mark 14:27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me
this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall
be scattered.

Mark 14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

Mark 14:29 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will
not I.

Mark 14:30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day,
even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.

Mark 14:31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I
will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.

Mark 14:32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith
to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.

Mark 14:33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be
sore amazed, and to be very heavy;

Mark 14:34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death:
tarry ye here, and watch.

Mark 14:35 And 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 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee;
take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.

Mark 14:37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter,
Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?

Mark 14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit
truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Mark 14:39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.

Mark 14:40 And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes
were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.

Mark 14:41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto 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; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

Mark 14:43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the
twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief
priests and the scribes and the elders.

Mark 14:44 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying,
Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.

Mark 14:45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and
saith, Master, master; and kissed him.

Mark 14:46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.

Mark 14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant
of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

Mark 14:48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as
against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?

Mark 14:49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not:
but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Mark 14:50 And they all forsook him, and fled.

Mark 14:51 And 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 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

Mark 14:53 And 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 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high
priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

Mark 14:55 And 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 bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed
not together.

Mark 14:57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him,

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 so did their witness agree together.

Mark 14:60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus,
saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

Mark 14:61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high
priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the

Mark 14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on
the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mark 14:63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we
any further witnesses?

Mark 14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all
condemned him to be guilty of death.

Mark 14:65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to
buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him
with the palms of their hands.

Mark 14:66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the
maids of the high priest:

Mark 14:67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and
said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.

Mark 14:68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou
sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.

Mark 14:69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by,
This is one of them.

Mark 14:70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by
said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean,
and thy speech agreeth thereto.

Mark 14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man
of whom ye speak.

Mark 14:72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the
word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me
thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

Mark 15:1 And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a
consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound
Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

Mark 15:2 And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he
answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.

Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered

Mark 15:4 And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold
how many things they witness against thee.

Mark 15:5 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.

Mark 15:6 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever
they desired.

Mark 15:7 And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that
had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

Mark 15:8 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had
ever done unto them.

Mark 15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you
the King of the Jews?

Mark 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

Mark 15:11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather
release Barabbas unto them.

Mark 15:12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then
that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?

Mark 15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him.

Mark 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they
cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.

Mark 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas
unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

Mark 15:16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium;
and they call together the whole band.

Mark 15:17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted 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 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon
him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.

Mark 15:20 And 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 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out
of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.

Mark 15:22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being
interpreted, The place of a skull.

Mark 15:23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he
received it not.

Mark 15:24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments,
casting lots upon them, what every man should take.

Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

Mark 15:26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE

Mark 15:27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand,
and the other on his left.

Mark 15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered
with the transgressors.

Mark 15:29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and
saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,

Mark 15:30 Save thyself, 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 And when the sixth hour was 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
hast thou forsaken me?

Mark 15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold,
he calleth Elias.

Mark 15:36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a
reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias 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 rent in twain from the top to the

Mark 15:39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he
so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of

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 ministered
unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.

Mark 15:42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation,
that is, the day before the sabbath,

Mark 15:43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited
for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the
body of Jesus.

the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.

unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Mark 16:3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone
from the door of the sepulchre?

Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for
it was very great.

Mark 16:5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on
the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of
Nazareth, which 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 goeth before
you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the
