Chapter 9Mark


1 And he said to them, Amen I say unto you, Some are here of those standing by, who shall in nowise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of :God come with power. 2 And after six days :Jesus taketh with him :Peter, and :James, and John, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them; 3 and his :garments became glistering, exceeding white, so as no fuller on :earth can whiten them. 4 And Elijah appeared to them with Moses: and they were talking with :Jesus. 5 And :Peter answereth and saith to :Jesus, Rabbei, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tents; for thee one, and for Moses one, and for Elijah one. 6 For he knew not what to answer; for they became sore afraid. 7 And a cloud came overshadowing them: and a voice came out of the cloud, This is my :beloved :Son: hear him. 8 And suddenly looking around they saw no one anymore with themselves, save :Jesus only. 9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they tell no one what things they had seen, save when the Son of :man should have risen from the dead. 10 And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising from the dead is. 11 And they asked him, saying, Wherefore say the scribes that Elijah must come first? 12 And he said to them, Elijah indeed cometh first, and restoreth all things: and how is it written of the Son of :man, that he suffer many things and be set at nought? 13 But I say unto you, that an Elijah is even come, and they have done to him whatsoever they would, even as it is written of him.

14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd about them, and scribes questioning with them. 15 And straightway the whole crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 16 And he asked them, What question ye with them? 17 And one of the crowd answered him, Teacher, I brought unto thee my :son, who hath a dumb spirit; 18 and wheresoever it seizeth him, it dasheth him down: and he foameth, and grindeth his :teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy :disciples that they cast it out; and they were unable. 19 And he answereth them and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him unto me. 20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit convulses him grievously; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21 And he asked his :father, How long time is it since this hath come to him? And he said, From a child. 22 And oftentimes it hath cast him both into fire and into waters, to destroy him: but If thou canst do aught have pity on us, and help us. 23 And :Jesus said to him, As to the If thou canst! All things are possible to him that believeth. 24 Straightway the father of the little child cried out, and said, I believe; help mine :unbelief. 25 And :Jesus seeing that a crowd was running together, rebuked the unclean :spirit, saying to him, Dumb and deaf :spirit, I command thee, come out of him, and come no more into him. 26 And having cried out, and convulsed him much, he came out: and the boy became as one dead; so that the many said [that] He is dead. 27 But :Jesus took him by the hand, and raised him up; and he arose. 28 And when he was come into the house, his :disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast it out? 29 And he said to them, This :kind can come out by nothing, save by prayer.

30 And they went forth thence, and passed through :Galilee; and he would not that anyone know it. 31 For he taught his :disciples, and said to them [that] The Son of :man is delivered up into men’s hands and they shall kill him; and when killed shall after three days rise again. 32 But they understood not the saying, and were afraid to ask him.

33 And they came to Capernaum: and when he was in the house he asked them, What were ye reasoning on the way? 34 But they were silent: for they had disputed one with another on the way, who was the greater. 35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith to them, If any would be first, he shall be last of all, and minister of all. 36 And he took a little child, and set him in the midst: and taking it in his arms, he said to them, 37 Whoso receive one of such little :children in my :name, receiveth me: and whoso receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me. 38 :John said to him, Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in thy :name, and we were hindering him, because he followed not us. 39 But :Jesus said, Hinder him not: for there is no one who shall do a mighty work in my :name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. 40 For who is not against us is for us. 41 For whoso shall give you a cup of water to drink, because in name ye are Christ’s, Amen I say unto you, that he shall in nowise lose his :reward. 42 And whoso should stumble one of these :little ones that believe, better for him if a great millstone hang about his :neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43 And if thy :hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into the life maimed, rather than having two :hands to go into :geenna, into the unquenchable :fire. 45 And if thy :foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into the life halt, rather than having two :feet to be cast into :geenna. 47 And if thine :eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of :God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into geenna; 48 where their :worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For every one shall be salted with fire. 50 :Salt is good: but if the salt become saltless, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace one with another.
