Mark 9 ©

2 The transfiguration of Christ: 11 he instructeth his disciples concerning the coming of Elias: 14 he casteth out a dumb and deaf spirit: 30 he foretelleth his own death and resurrection; 33 checketh the ambition of his disciples; 38 bidding them to hinder no one from working miracles in his name, and warning them to avoid offences.


AND he said unto them, a*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 bwith power.


cAnd after six days Jesus taketh with him dPeter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain eapart by themselves: and he was ftransfigured before them.


And his *raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no *fuller on earth can white them.


And gthere appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.


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


For he i*wist not what to say; for they were *sore afraid.


jAnd there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, kThis is my beloved Son: lhear him.


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


mAnd as they came down from the mountain, nhe charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.


And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what othe rising from the dead should mean.


¶And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that pElias must first come?


And he answered and told them, qElias *verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and rhow it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be sset at nought.


But I say unto you, tThat Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.


uAnd when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.


And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were vgreatly *amazed, and running to him saluted him.


And he asked the scribes, What wquestion ye 1with them?


And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, xI have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;


yAnd wheresoever he taketh him, he 2teareth 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 zthey could not.


He answereth him, and saith, aO faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.


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


And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, cOf a child.


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


Jesus said unto him, eIf thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.


And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; fhelp thou mine unbelief.


When Jesus saw that the people came running together, ghe 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.


hAnd 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.


iBut Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.


jAnd when he was come kinto the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?


And he said unto them, lThis kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.


mAnd they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; nand he would not that any man should know it.


oFor 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.


pBut they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.


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


But they held their peace: rfor by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.


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


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


uWhosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and vwhosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.


wAnd 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.


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


For yhe that is not against us is on our part.


zFor 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 reward.


aAnd whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, bit is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.


cAnd if thy hand 3*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:


dWhere their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.


And eif thy foot 4*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:


Where ftheir worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.


And if thine eye 5*offend thee, gpluck 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:


Where htheir worm dieth not, and the fire iis not quenched.


jFor every one shall be salted with kfire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.


lSalt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? mHave salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
