THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
Mark 10 ©
1 Christ answers the question of the Pharisees, whether it be lawful for a man to forsake his wife. 13 Will have little children permitted to come unto Him, and blesses them. 17 Answers a rich young man, who asked what he must do to inherit eternal life. 23 And teaches how hardly the rich come into the Kingdom of heaven. 28 Promises them, who leave all they have for His sake, both temporal and eternal recompense. 32 Foretells again His suffering, death and resurrection. 35 Answers the children of Zebedee to their request of sitting at His right and left hand, and exhorts them to sufferance and humility. 46 Restores blind Bartimæus to his sight.
ANDa he arose 1from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judæa by 2the farther side of Jordan: and the 3people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.
¶And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
And they said, Mosesb suffered to write a 4bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
Butc from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
Ford this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and 5cleave to his wife;
And they twain shall be 6one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
Whate therefore God hath 7joined together, let not man 8put asunder.
And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
Andf he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery 9against her.
And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
¶Andg they 10brought young children to him, that he should 11touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
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: forh of such is the kingdom of God.
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God 12as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Andi he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
¶Andj 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?
And Jesus said unto him, Why 13callest thou me good? there is 14none good but one, that is, God.
Thou knowest the commandments, Dok not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, 15Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
Then Jesus beholding him 16loved him, and said unto him, Onel thing thou 17lackest: go thy way, 18sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
And he was 19sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great 20possessions.
¶And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, Howm hardlyn shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
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!
It is easier for 21a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
And Jesus looking upon them saith, 22With men it is impossible, but not with God: foro with God all things are possible.
¶Thenp Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
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,
But he shall receive an 23hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, 24with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Butq many that are 25first shall be last; and the last first.
¶Andr they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus 26went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were 27afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
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:
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.
¶Ands James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, 28saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?
They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may 29sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the 30cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism thatt I am baptized with?
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:
But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand 31is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whomu it is prepared.
Andv when the ten heard it, they began to be 32much displeased with James and John.
But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, 33Ye know thatw they 34which are accounted to rule over 35the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
Butx so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
For even the Son of man came not toy be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give hisz36life 37a ransom for many.
¶Andaa they came to 38Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind 39Bartimæus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
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.
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.
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 thee.
And he, casting away 40his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, 41Lord, that I might receive my sight.
And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thyab faith 42hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
