Mark Chapter 1

Mark 1:1 (CJB)

1 The beginning of the Good News of Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of God:

Mark 1:2 (NIV)

2 It is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”–

Mark 1:3 (NIV)

3 “a voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.'”

Mark 1:4 (NIV)

4 And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

Mark 1:5 (NIV)

5 The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.

Mark 1:6 (AMP)

6 And John wore clothing woven of camel’s hair and had a leather girdle around his loins and ate locusts and wild honey.

Mark 1:7 (CJB)

7 He proclaimed: “After me is coming someone who is more powerful than I — I’m not worthy even to bend down and untie his sandals.

Mark 1:8 (NIV)

8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Mark 1:9 (NIV)

9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.

Mark 1:10 (NASB)

10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him;

Mark 1:11 (NASB)

11 and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”

Mark 1:12 (NASB)

12 Immediately the Spirit *impelled Him to go out into the wilderness.

Mark 1:13 (NIV)

13 and he was in the desert forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.

Mark 1:14 (AMP)

14 Now after John was arrested and put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God,

Mark 1:15 (NASB)

15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Mark 1:16 (NIV)

16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.

Mark 1:17 (NASB)

17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”

Mark 1:18 (NASB)

18 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.

Mark 1:19 (NASB)

19 Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets.

Mark 1:20 (NASB)

20 Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away to follow Him.

Mark 1:21 (NIV)

21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.

Mark 1:22 (CJB)

22 They were amazed at the way he taught, for he did not instruct them like the Torah-teachers but as one who had authority himself.

Mark 1:23 (NIV)

23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out,

Mark 1:24 (NIV)

24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are–the Holy One of God!”

Mark 1:25 (NASB)

25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”

Mark 1:26 (NASB)

26 Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him.

Mark 1:27 (CJB)

27 They were all so astounded that they began asking each other, “What is this? A new teaching, one with authority behind it! He gives orders even to the unclean spirits, and they obey him!”

Mark 1:28 (NIV)

28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Mark 1:29 (NIV)

29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew.

Mark 1:30 (NIV)

30 Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her.

Mark 1:31 (NIV)

31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.

Mark 1:32 (AMP)

32 Now when it was evening, after the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those under the power of demons,

Mark 1:33 (CJB)

33 and the whole town came crowding around the door.

Mark 1:34 (NASB)

34 And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.

Mark 1:35 (NIV)

35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.

Mark 1:36 (NASB)

36 Simon and his companions searched for Him;

Mark 1:37 (AMP)

37 And they found Him and said to Him, Everybody is looking for You.

Mark 1:38 (AMP)

38 And He said to them, Let us be going on into the neighboring country towns, that I may preach there also; for that is why I came out.

Mark 1:39 (NASB)

39 And He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out the demons.

Mark 1:40 (NASB)

40 And a leper *came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.”

Mark 1:41 (NASB)

41 Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and *said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”

Mark 1:42 (NASB)

42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.

Mark 1:43 (NASB)

43 And He sternly warned him and immediately sent him away,

Mark 1:44 (NASB)

44 and He *said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Mark 1:45 (NASB)

45 But he went out and began to proclaim it freely and to spread the news around, to such an extent that Jesus could no longer publicly enter a city, but stayed out in unpopulated areas; and they were coming to Him from everywhere.

Mark Chapter 2

Mark 2:1 (NKJV)

1 And again He entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house.

Mark 2:2 (NASB)

2 And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, not even near the door; and He was speaking the word to them.

Mark 2:3 (NASB)

3 And they *came, bringing to Him a paralytic, carried by four men.

Mark 2:4 (NASB)

4 Being unable to get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had dug an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying.

Mark 2:5 (NASB)

5 And Jesus seeing their faith *said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

Mark 2:6 (NASB)

6 But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts,

Mark 2:7 (NASB)

7 “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?”

Mark 2:8 (NKJV)

8 But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts?

Mark 2:9 (NIV)

9 Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’?

Mark 2:10 (NASB)

10 “But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He *said to the paralytic,

Mark 2:11 (NASB)

11 “I say to you, get up, pick up your pallet and go home.”

Mark 2:12 (NIV)

12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”

Mark 2:13 (NIV)

13 Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them.

Mark 2:14 (NIV)

14 As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.

Mark 2:15 (NIV)

15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.

Mark 2:16 (AMP)

16 And the scribes [belonging to the party] of the Pharisees, when they saw that He was eating with [those definitely known to be especially wicked] sinners and tax collectors, said to His disciples, Why does He eat and drink with tax collectors and [notorious] sinners?

Mark 2:17 (NASB)-M

17 And hearing this, Jesus *said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the [self] righteous, but sinners.”

Mark 2:18 (AMP)

18 Now John’s disciples and the Pharisees were observing a fast; and [some people] came and asked Jesus, Why are John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fasting, but Your disciples are not doing so?

Mark 2:19 (NIV)

19 Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom fast while he is with them? They cannot, so long as they have him with them.

Mark 2:20 (NASB)

20 “But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day.

Mark 2:21 (NIV)

21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse.

Mark 2:22 (NIV)

22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, he pours new wine into new wineskins.”

Mark 2:23 (NIV)

23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain.

Mark 2:24 (NIV)

24 The Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?”

Mark 2:25 (NIV)

25 He answered, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need?

Mark 2:26 (NIV)

26 In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.”

Mark 2:27 (NIV)

27 Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

Mark 2:28 (NIV)

28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”

Mark Chapter 3

Mark 3:1 (NASB)

1 He entered again into a synagogue; and a man was there whose hand was withered.

Mark 3:2 (NIV)

2 Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath.

Mark 3:3 (NIV)

3 Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Stand up in front of everyone.”

Mark 3:4 (NIV)

4 Then Jesus asked them, “Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they remained silent.

Mark 3:5 (NIV)

5 He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored.

Mark 3:6 (NIV)

6 Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.

Mark 3:7 (NIV)

7 Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the lake, and a large crowd from Galilee followed.

Mark 3:8 (NIV)

8 When they heard all he was doing, many people came to him from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, and the regions across the Jordan and around Tyre and Sidon.

Mark 3:9 (NIV)

9 Because of the crowd he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him, to keep the people from crowding him.

Mark 3:10 (NIV)

10 For he had healed many, so that those with diseases were pushing forward to touch him.

Mark 3:11 (NIV)

11 Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.”

Mark 3:12 (NIV)

12 But he gave them strict orders not to tell who he was.

Mark 3:13 (NIV)

13 Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him.

Mark 3:14 (NIV)

14 He appointed twelve–designating them apostles–that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach

Mark 3:15 (NIV)

15 and to have authority to drive out demons.

Mark 3:16 (NIV)

16 These are the twelve he appointed: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter);

Mark 3:17 (NIV)

17 James son of Zebedee and his brother John (to them he gave the name Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder);

Mark 3:18 (NIV)

18 Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot

Mark 3:19 (NIV)

19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

Mark 3:20 (NKJV)

20 Then the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

Mark 3:21 (NIV)

21 When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”

Mark 3:22 (NIV)

22 And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”

Mark 3:23 (NIV)

23 So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan?

Mark 3:24 (NIV)

24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 (NIV)

25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Mark 3:26 (NIV)

26 And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come.

Mark 3:27 (NASB)

27 “But no one can enter the strong man’s house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.

Mark 3:28 (NIV)

28 I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven them.

Mark 3:29 (NIV)

29 But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin.”

Mark 3:30 (NIV)

30 He said this because they were saying, “He has an evil spirit.”

Mark 3:31 (NIV)

31 Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him.

Mark 3:32 (NIV)

32 A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.”

Mark 3:33 (NIV)

33 “Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked.

Mark 3:34 (NASB)

34 Looking about at those who were sitting around Him, He *said, “Behold My mother and My brothers!

Mark 3:35 (NASB)

35 “For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.”

Mark Chapter 4

Mark 4:1 (NIV)

1 Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge.

Mark 4:2 (NASB)

2 And He was teaching them many things in parables, and was saying to them in His teaching,

Mark 4:3 (AMP)

3 Give attention to this! Behold, a sower went out to sow.

Mark 4:4 (NIV)

4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.

Mark 4:5 (NIV)

5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow.

Mark 4:6 (NIV)

6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.

Mark 4:7 (NIV)

7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain.

Mark 4:8 (NIV)

8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times.”

Mark 4:9 (NIV)

9 Then Jesus said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Mark 4:10 (NIV)

10 When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables.

Mark 4:11 (NIV)

11 He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables

Mark 4:12 (NIV)

12 so that, “‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'”

Mark 4:13 (NASB)

13 And He *said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How will you understand all the parables?

Mark 4:14 (NASB)

14 “The sower sows the word.

Mark 4:15 (NIV)

15 Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them.

Mark 4:16 (AMP)

16 And in the same way the ones sown upon stony ground are those who, when they hear the Word, at once receive and accept and welcome it with joy;

Mark 4:17 (NIV)

17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

Mark 4:18 (NKJV)

18 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word,

Mark 4:19 (NKJV)

19 and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

Mark 4:20 (NIV)

20 Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop–thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.”

Mark 4:21 (NKJV)

21 Also He said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand?

Mark 4:22 (NKJV)

22 For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.

Mark 4:23 (NIV)

23 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Mark 4:24 (AMP)

24 And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.

Mark 4:25 (NKJV)

25 For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”

Mark 4:26 (AMP)

26 And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground,

Mark 4:27 (AMP)

27 And then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases—he knows not how.

Mark 4:28 (NASB)

28 “The soil produces crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, then the mature grain in the head.

Mark 4:29 (NKJV)

29 But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”

Mark 4:30 (NIV)

30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it?

Mark 4:31 (CJB)

31 It is like a mustard seed, which, when planted, is the smallest of all the seeds in the field;

Mark 4:32 (NIV)

32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air can perch in its shade.”

Mark 4:33 (NKJV)

33 And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.

Mark 4:34 (NIV)

34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.

Mark 4:35 (NKJV)

35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”

Mark 4:36 (CJB)

36 So, leaving the crowd behind, they took him just as he was, in the boat; and there were other boats with him.

Mark 4:37 (NASB)

37 And there *arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up.

Mark 4:38 (NASB)

38 Jesus Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they *woke Him and *said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

Mark 4:39 (NIV)

39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

Mark 4:40 (NKJV)

40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”

Mark 4:41 (NIV)

41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

Mark Chapter 5

Mark 5:1 (NIV)

1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.

Mark 5:2 (NIV)

2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him.

Mark 5:3 (NIV)

3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain.

Mark 5:4 (NIV)

4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.

Mark 5:5 (AMP)

5 Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always shrieking and screaming and beating and bruising and cutting himself with stones.

Mark 5:6 (NIV)

6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.

Mark 5:7 (NIV)

7 He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!”

Mark 5:8 (NIV)

8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!”

Mark 5:9 (NIV)

9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”

Mark 5:10 (NASB)

10 And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.

Mark 5:11 (NIV)

11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.

Mark 5:12 (NIV)

12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.”

Mark 5:13 (NIV)

13 He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.

Mark 5:14 (NIV)

14 Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened.

Mark 5:15 (NIV)

15 When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.

Mark 5:16 (NIV)

16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man–and told about the pigs as well.

Mark 5:17 (NIV)

17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.

Mark 5:18 (NKJV)

18 And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged Him that he might be with Him.

Mark 5:19 (NKJV)

19 However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, “Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.”

Mark 5:20 (NASB)

20 And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed.

Mark 5:21 (NIV)

21 When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake.

Mark 5:22 (NKJV)

22 And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet

Mark 5:23 (NKJV)

23 and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.”

Mark 5:24 (NIV)

24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him.

Mark 5:25 (NASB)

25 A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years,

Mark 5:26 (NIV)

26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.

Mark 5:27 (NIV)

27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,

Mark 5:28 (NASB)

28 For she thought, “If I just touch His garments, I will get well.”

Mark 5:29 (NASB)

29 Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.

Mark 5:30 (NIV)

30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”

Mark 5:31 (NIV)

31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?'”

Mark 5:32 (NIV)

32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.

Mark 5:33 (NIV)

33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.

Mark 5:34 (NASB)

34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.”

Mark 5:35 (NIV)

35 While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher any more?”

Mark 5:36 (NKJV)

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”

Mark 5:37 (NASB)

37 And He allowed no one to accompany Him, except Peter and James and John the brother of James.

Mark 5:38 (NIV)

38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.

Mark 5:39 (NIV)

39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.”

Mark 5:40 (CJB)

40 And they jeered at him. But he put them all outside, took the child’s father and mother and those with him, and went in where the child was.

Mark 5:41 (NIV)

41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”).

Mark 5:42 (CJB)

42 At once the girl got up and began walking around; she was twelve years old. Everybody was utterly amazed.

Mark 5:43 (NIV)

43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.

Mark Chapter 6

Mark 6:1 (NIV)

1 Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples.

Mark 6:2 (NIV)

2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles!

Mark 6:3 (NIV)

3 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.

Mark 6:4 (NIV)

4 Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.”

Mark 6:5 (NIV)

5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.

Mark 6:6 (NASB)

6 And He wondered at their unbelief. And He was going around the villages teaching.

Mark 6:7 (NASB)

7 And He *summoned the twelve and began to send them out in pairs, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits;

Mark 6:8 (NASB)

8 and He instructed them that they should take nothing for their journey, except a mere staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their belt—

Mark 6:9 (NASB)

9 but to wear sandals; and He added, “Do not put on two tunics.”

Mark 6:10 (NASB)

10 And He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave town.

Mark 6:11 (NKJV)

11 And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city!”

Mark 6:12 (NIV)

12 They went out and preached that people should repent.

Mark 6:13 (NIV)

13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

Mark 6:14 (NIV)

14 King Herod heard about this, for Jesus’ name had become well known. Some were saying, “John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.”

Mark 6:15 (NIV)

15 Others said, “He is Elijah.” And still others claimed, “He is a prophet, like one of the prophets of long ago.”

Mark 6:16 (NKJV)

16 But when Herod heard, he said, “This is John, whom I beheaded; he has been raised from the dead!”

Mark 6:17 (NKJV)

17 For Herod himself had sent and laid hold of John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife; for he had married her.

Mark 6:18 (NKJV)

18 For John had said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”

Mark 6:19 (NIV)

19 So Herodias nursed a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she was not able to,

Mark 6:20 (NIV)

20 because Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled; yet he liked to listen to him.

Mark 6:21 (NIV)

21 Finally the opportune time came. On his birthday Herod gave a banquet for his high officials and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee.

Mark 6:22 (NIV)

22 When the daughter of Herodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his dinner guests. The king said to the girl, “Ask me for anything you want, and I’ll give it to you.”

Mark 6:23 (NIV)

23 And he promised her with an oath, “Whatever you ask I will give you, up to half my kingdom.”

Mark 6:24 (NASB)

24 And she went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask for?” And she said, “The head of John the Baptist.”

Mark 6:25 (NIV)

25 At once the girl hurried in to the king with the request: “I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptist on a platter.”

Mark 6:26 (NIV)

26 The king was greatly distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he did not want to refuse her.

Mark 6:27 (NIV)

27 So he immediately sent an executioner with orders to bring John’s head. The man went, beheaded John in the prison,

Mark 6:28 (NIV)

28 and brought back his head on a platter. He presented it to the girl, and she gave it to her mother.

Mark 6:29 (NIV)

29 On hearing of this, John’s disciples came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.

Mark 6:30 (NIV)

30 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught.

Mark 6:31 (NIV)

31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

Mark 6:32 (NIV)

32 So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.

Mark 6:33 (NIV)

33 But many who saw them leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them.

Mark 6:34 (NIV)

34 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

Mark 6:35 (NIV)

35 By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. “This is a remote place,” they said, “and it’s already very late.

Mark 6:36 (NIV)

36 Send the people away so they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.”

Mark 6:37 (NIV)

37 But he answered, “You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “That would take eight months of a man’s wages! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?”

Mark 6:38 (NIV)

38 “How many loaves do you have?” he asked. “Go and see.” When they found out, they said, “Five–and two fish.”

Mark 6:39 (NIV)

39 Then Jesus directed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass.

Mark 6:40 (NIV)

40 So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties.

Mark 6:41 (NIV)

41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.

Mark 6:42 (NIV)

42 They all ate and were satisfied,

Mark 6:43 (NIV)

43 and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish.

Mark 6:44 (CJB)

44 Those who ate the loaves numbered five thousand men.

Mark 6:45 (NIV)

45 Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd.

Mark 6:46 (NIV)

46 After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray.

Mark 6:47 (NIV)

47 When evening came, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land.

Mark 6:48 (NIV)

48 He saw the disciples straining at the oars, because the wind was against them. About the fourth watch of the night he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to pass by them,

Mark 6:49 (NIV)

49 but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out,

Mark 6:50 (NIV)

50 because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

Mark 6:51 (NASB)

51 Then He got into the boat with them, and the wind stopped; and they were utterly astonished,

Mark 6:52 (NASB)

52 for they had not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but their heart was hardened.

Mark 6:53 (NKJV)

53 When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there.

Mark 6:54 (NASB)

54 When they got out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,

Mark 6:55 (NIV)

55 They ran throughout that whole region and carried the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was.

Mark 6:56 (NIV)

56 And wherever he went–into villages, towns or countryside–they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed.

Mark Chapter 7

Mark 7:1 (NKJV)

1 Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem.

Mark 7:2 (NKJV)

2 Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault.

Mark 7:3 (NIV)

3 (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders.

Mark 7:4 (CJB)

4 Also, when they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they have rinsed their hands up to the wrist; and they adhere to many other traditions, such as washing cups, pots and bronze vessels.)

Mark 7:5 (AMP)

5 And the Pharisees and scribes kept asking [Jesus], Why do Your disciples not order their way of living according to the tradition handed down by the forefathers [to be observed], but eat with hands unwashed and ceremonially not purified?

Mark 7:6 (NIV)

6 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

Mark 7:7 (NIV)

7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.’

Mark 7:8 (CJB)

8 “You depart from God’s command and hold onto human tradition.

Mark 7:9 (CJB)

9 Indeed,” he said to them, “you have made a fine art of departing from God’s command in order to keep your tradition!

Mark 7:10 (NIV)

10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’

Mark 7:11 (NIV)

11 But you say that if a man says to his father or mother: ‘Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is Corban’ (that is, a gift devoted to God),

Mark 7:12 (NIV)

12 then you no longer let him do anything for his father or mother.

Mark 7:13 (NIV)

13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”

Mark 7:14 (NIV)

14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this.

Mark 7:15 (CJB)

15 There is nothing outside a person which, by going into him, can make him unclean. Rather, it is the things that come out of a person which make a person unclean!”

Mark 7:16 (AMP)

16 If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening [and let him perceive and comprehend by hearing].

Mark 7:17 (NIV)

17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable.

Mark 7:18 (NIV)

18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him ‘unclean’?

Mark 7:19 (AMP)

19 Since it does not reach and enter his heart but [only his] digestive tract, and so passes on [into the place designed to receive waste]? Thus He was making and declaring all foods [ceremonially] clean [that is, abolishing the ceremonial distinctions of the Levitical Law].

Mark 7:20 (NASB)

20 And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man.

Mark 7:21 (NIV)

21 For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,

Mark 7:22 (NIV)

22 greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.

Mark 7:23 (NIV)

23 All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.'”

Mark 7:24 (NASB)

24 Jesus got up and went away from there to the region of Tyre. And when He had entered a house, He wanted no one to know of it; yet He could not escape notice.

Mark 7:25 (NKJV)

25 For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.

Mark 7:26 (NIV)

26 The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.

Mark 7:27 (NIV)

27 “First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”

Mark 7:28 (NIV)

28 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “but even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”

Mark 7:29 (CJB)

29 Then he said to her, “For such an answer you may go on home; the demon has left your daughter.”

Mark 7:30 (NASB)

30 And going back to her home, she found the child lying on the bed, the demon having left.

Mark 7:31 (NIV)

31 Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis.

Mark 7:32 (NIV)

32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged him to place his hand on the man.

Mark 7:33 (NASB)

33 Jesus took him aside from the crowd, by himself, and put His fingers into his ears, and after spitting, He touched his tongue with the saliva;

Mark 7:34 (NIV)

34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means, “Be opened!”).

Mark 7:35 (NASB)

35 And his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was removed, and he began speaking plainly.

Mark 7:36 (NASB)

36 And He gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they continued to proclaim it.

Mark 7:37 (NIV)

37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Mark Chapter 8

Mark 8:1 (NIV)

1 During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said,

Mark 8:2 (NIV)

2 “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat.

Mark 8:3 (NIV)

3 If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance.”

Mark 8:4 (AMP)

4 And His disciples replied to Him, How can anyone fill and satisfy [these people] with loaves of bread here in [this] desolate and uninhabited region?

Mark 8:5 (NIV)

5 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied.

Mark 8:6 (NIV)

6 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to set before the people, and they did so.

Mark 8:7 (NIV)

7 They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them.

Mark 8:8 (NASB)

8 And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large baskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces.

Mark 8:9 (NIV)

9 About four thousand men were present. And having sent them away,

Mark 8:10 (NIV)

10 he got into the boat with his disciples and went to the region of Dalmanutha.

Mark 8:11 (NIV)

11 The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven.

Mark 8:12 (NIV)

12 He sighed deeply and said, “Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to it.”

Mark 8:13 (NIV)

13 Then he left them, got back into the boat and crossed to the other side.

Mark 8:14 (NIV)

14 The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat.

Mark 8:15 (NASB)

15 And He was giving orders to them, saying, “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”

Mark 8:16 (NASB)

16 They began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread.

Mark 8:17 (NIV)

17 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened?

Mark 8:18 (NIV)

18 Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember?

Mark 8:19 (NIV)

19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?” “Twelve,” they replied.

Mark 8:20 (NKJV)

20 “Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?” And they said, “Seven.”

Mark 8:21 (NIV)

21 He said to them, “Do you still not understand?”

Mark 8:22 (NIV)

22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him.

Mark 8:23 (NASB)

23 Taking the blind man by the hand, He brought him out of the village; and after spitting on his eyes and laying His hands on him, He asked him, “Do you see anything?”

Mark 8:24 (NIV)

24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”

Mark 8:25 (NIV)

25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

Mark 8:26 (NKJV)

26 Then He sent him away to his house, saying, “Neither go into the town, nor tell anyone in the town.”

Mark 8:27 (NASB)

27 Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, “Who do people say that I am?”

Mark 8:28 (NIV)

28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

Mark 8:29 (AMP)

29 And He asked them, But who do you yourselves say that I am? Peter replied to Him, You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).

Mark 8:30 (NKJV)

30 Then He strictly warned them that they should tell no one about Him.

Mark 8:31 (NIV)

31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.

Mark 8:32 (NIV)

32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

Mark 8:33 (NKJV)

33 But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Mark 8:34 (NIV)

34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

Mark 8:35 (NASB)

35 “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.

Mark 8:36 (NIV)

36 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?

Mark 8:37 (NIV)

37 Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mark 8:38 (NIV)

38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”

Mark Chapter 9

Mark 9:1 (NIV)

1 And he said to them, “I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.”

Mark 9:2 (NIV)

2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.

Mark 9:3 (NIV)

3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.

Mark 9:4 (NIV)

4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

Mark 9:5 (NIV)

5 Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters–one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”

Mark 9:6 (NKJV)

6 because he did not know what to say, for they were greatly afraid.

Mark 9:7 (NASB)

7 Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!”

Mark 9:8 (NIV)

8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.

Mark 9:9 (NIV)

9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.

Mark 9:10 (NKJV)

10 So they kept this word to themselves, questioning what the rising from the dead meant.

Mark 9:11 (NASB)

11 They asked Him, saying, “Why is it that the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”

Mark 9:12 (NKJV)

12 Then He answered and told them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and restores all things. And how is it written concerning the Son of Man, that He must suffer many things and be treated with contempt?

Mark 9:13 (NASB)

13 “But I say to you that Elijah has indeed come, and they did to him whatever they wished, just as it is written of him.”

Mark 9:14 (NIV)

14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them.

Mark 9:15 (AMP)

15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw Jesus [returning from the holy mount, His face and person yet glistening], they were greatly amazed and ran up to Him [and] greeted Him.

Mark 9:16 (NKJV)

16 And He asked the scribes, “What are you discussing with them?”

Mark 9:17 (NIV)

17 A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech.

Mark 9:18 (NIV)

18 Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.”

Mark 9:19 (NIV)

19 “O unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”

Mark 9:20 (AMP)

20 So they brought [the boy] to Him, and when the spirit saw Him, at once it completely convulsed the boy, and he fell to the ground and kept rolling about, foaming [at the mouth].

Mark 9:21 (NASB)

21 And He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood.

Mark 9:22 (NIV)

22 “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”

Mark 9:23 (NKJV)

23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Mark 9:24 (NIV)

24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

Mark 9:25 (NIV)

25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”

Mark 9:26 (NIV)

26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.”

Mark 9:27 (NIV)

27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.

Mark 9:28 (NIV)

28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

Mark 9:29 (AMP)

29 And He replied to them, This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting.

Mark 9:30 (NASB)

30 From there they went out and began to go through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know about it.

Mark 9:31 (NKJV)

31 For He taught His disciples and said to them, “The Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And after He is killed, He will rise the third day.”

Mark 9:32 (NIV)

32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.

Mark 9:33 (AMP)

33 And they arrived at Capernaum; and when [they were] in the house, He asked them, What were you discussing and arguing about on the road?

Mark 9:34 (NASB)

34 But they kept silent, for on the way they had discussed with one another which of them was the greatest.

Mark 9:35 (NASB)

35 Sitting down, He called the twelve and *said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”

Mark 9:36 (NIV)

36 He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them,

Mark 9:37 (CJB)

37 “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the One who sent me.”

Mark 9:38 (AMP)

38 John said to Him, Teacher, we saw a man who does not follow along with us driving out demons in Your name, and we forbade him to do it, because he is not one of our band [of Your disciples].

Mark 9:39 (NKJV)

39 But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me.

Mark 9:40 (NASB)

40 “For he who is not against us is for us.

Mark 9:41 (CJB)

41 Indeed, whoever gives you even a cup of water to drink because you come in the name of the Messiah — yes! I tell you that he will certainly not lose his reward.

Mark 9:42 (NASB)

42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.

Mark 9:43 (NASB)

43 “If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire,

Mark 9:44 (HCSB)

44 where Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.]

Mark 9:45 (NASB)

45 “If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than, having your two feet, to be cast into hell,

Mark 9:46 (HCSB)

46 where Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.]

Mark 9:47 (NASB)

47 “If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell,

Mark 9:48 (HCSB)

48 where Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:49 (NASB)

49 “For everyone will be salted with fire.

Mark 9:50 (NIV)

50 “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”

Mark Chapter 10

Mark 10:1 (NIV)

1 Jesus then left that place and went into the region of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them.

Mark 10:2 (NIV)

2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”

Mark 10:3 (NASB)

3 And He answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?”

Mark 10:4 (NIV)

4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.”

Mark 10:5 (NASB)

5 But Jesus said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.

Mark 10:6 (NIV)

6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’

Mark 10:7 (NIV)

7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,

Mark 10:8 (NIV)

8 and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one.

Mark 10:9 (CJB)

9 So then, no one should break apart what God has joined together.”

Mark 10:10 (NIV)

10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this.

Mark 10:11 (CJB)

11 He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against his wife;

Mark 10:12 (CJB)

12 and if a wife divorces her husband and marries another man, she too commits adultery.”

Mark 10:13 (NIV)

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.

Mark 10:14 (NKJV)

14 But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.

Mark 10:15 (NKJV)

15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”

Mark 10:16 (NKJV)

16 And He took them up in His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them.

Mark 10:17 (NIV)

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

Mark 10:18 (NIV)

18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.

Mark 10:19 (NIV)

19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.'”

Mark 10:20 (NKJV)

20 And he answered and said to Him, “Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth.”

Mark 10:21 (NIV)

21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Mark 10:22 (NKJV)

22 But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

Mark 10:23 (NIV)

23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the [worldly] rich to enter the kingdom of God!”

Mark 10:24 (NKJV)

24 And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!

Mark 10:25 (NIV)

25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Mark 10:26 (CJB)

26 They were utterly amazed and said to him, “Then who can be saved?”

Mark 10:27 (NIV)

27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

Mark 10:28 (NIV)

28 Peter said to him, “We have left everything to follow you!”

Mark 10:29 (NIV)

29 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel

Mark 10:30 (NIV)

30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields–and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.

Mark 10:31 (NIV)

31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

Mark 10:32 (NKJV)

32 Now they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going before them; and they were amazed. And as they followed they were afraid. Then He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them the things that would happen to Him:

Mark 10:33 (NIV)

33 “We are going up to Jerusalem,” he said, “and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles,

Mark 10:34 (NIV)

34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.”

Mark 10:35 (NASB)

35 James and John, the two sons of Zebedee, *came up to Jesus, saying, “Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask of You.”

Mark 10:36 (NASB)

36 And He said to them, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

Mark 10:37 (NASB)

37 They said to Him, “Grant that we may sit, one on Your right and one on Your left, in Your glory.”

Mark 10:38 (NASB)

38 But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?”

Mark 10:39 (NASB)

39 They said to Him, “We are able.” And Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized.

Mark 10:40 (NIV)

40 but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.”

Mark 10:41 (NIV)

41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John.

Mark 10:42 (CJB)-M

42 But Yeshua called them to him and said to them, “You know that among the Gentiles, those who are supposed to rule them become tyrants, and their superiors become dictators.

Mark 10:43 (CJB)

43 But among you, it must not be like that! On the contrary, whoever among you wants to be a leader must be your servant;

Mark 10:44 (NASB)

44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.

Mark 10:45 (NIV)

45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Mark 10:46 (NIV)

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging.

Mark 10:47 (NIV)

47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Mark 10:48 (NIV)

48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Mark 10:49 (NASB)

49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him here.” So they *called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage, stand up! He is calling for you.”

Mark 10:50 (NIV)

50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

Mark 10:51 (NIV)

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

Mark 10:52 (NIV)

52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

Mark Chapter 11

Mark 11:1 (AMP)

1 When they were getting near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, He sent ahead two of His disciples

Mark 11:2 (AMP)

2 And instructed them, Go into the village in front of you, and as soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied, which has never been ridden by anyone; unfasten it and bring it [here].

Mark 11:3 (CJB)

3 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it,’ and he will send it here right away.”

Mark 11:4 (NASB)

4 They went away and found a colt tied at the door, outside in the street; and they *untied it.

Mark 11:5 (AMP)

5 And some who were standing there said to them, What are you doing, untying the colt?

Mark 11:6 (AMP)

6 And they replied as Jesus had directed them, and they allowed them to go.

Mark 11:7 (AMP)

7 And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their outer garments upon it, and He sat on it.

Mark 11:8 (AMP)

8 And many [of the people] spread their garments on the road, and others [scattered a layer of] leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.

Mark 11:9 (NIV)

9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

Mark 11:10 (NIV)

10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!” “Hosanna in the highest!”

Mark 11:11 (AMP)

11 And Jesus went into Jerusalem and entered the temple [enclosure]; and when He had looked around, surveying and observing everything, as it was already late, He went out to Bethany together with the Twelve [apostles].

Mark 11:12 (NIV)

12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.

Mark 11:13 (NIV)

13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.

Mark 11:14 (NIV)

14 Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it.

Mark 11:15 (NIV)

15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves,

Mark 11:16 (NASB)

16 and He would not permit anyone to carry merchandise through the temple.

Mark 11:17 (NKJV)

17 Then He taught, saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ “

Mark 11:18 (NIV)

18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.

Mark 11:19 (AMP)

19 And when evening came on, He and His disciples, as accustomed, went out of the city.

Mark 11:20 (AMP)

20 In the morning, when they were passing along, they noticed that the fig tree was withered [completely] away to its roots.

Mark 11:21 (NKJV)

21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”

Mark 11:22 (NKJV)

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.

Mark 11:23 (NIV)

23 “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

Mark 11:24 (NASB)

24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.

Mark 11:25 (CJB)

25 And when you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive your offenses.”

Mark 11:26 (NASB)

26 [“But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”]

Mark 11:27 (NIV)

27 They arrived again in Jerusalem, and while Jesus was walking in the temple courts, the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders came to him.

Mark 11:28 (NKJV)

28 And they said to Him, “By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority to do these things?”

Mark 11:29 (NIV)

29 Jesus replied, “I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things.

Mark 11:30 (NASB)

30 “Was the baptism of John from heaven, or from men? Answer Me.”

Mark 11:31 (NKJV)

31 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’

Mark 11:32 (NASB)

32 “But shall we say, ‘From men’?”—they were afraid of the people, for everyone considered John to have been a real prophet.

Mark 11:33 (NKJV)

33 So they answered and said to Jesus, “We do not know.” And Jesus answered and said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

Mark Chapter 12

Mark 12:1 (NKJV)

1 Then He began to speak to them in parables: “A man planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a place for the wine vat and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country.

Mark 12:2 (CJB)

2 When harvest-time came, he sent a servant to the tenants to collect his share of the crop from the vineyard.

Mark 12:3 (NIV)

3 But they seized him, beat him and sent him away empty-handed.

Mark 12:4 (NASB)

4 “Again he sent them another slave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully.

Mark 12:5 (NASB)

5 “And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some and killing others.

Mark 12:6 (NIV)

6 “He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’

Mark 12:7 (NIV)

7 “But the tenants said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’

Mark 12:8 (CJB)

8 So they seized him, killed him and threw him out of the vineyard.

Mark 12:9 (NKJV)

9 Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vinedressers, and give the vineyard to others.

Mark 12:10 (NKJV)

10 Have you not even read this Scripture: ‘The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.

Mark 12:11 (NIV)

11 the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?”

Mark 12:12 (NIV)

12 Then they looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away.

Mark 12:13 (AMP)

13 But they sent some of the Pharisees and of the Herodians to Him for the purpose of entrapping Him in His speech.

Mark 12:14 (NIV)

14 They came to him and said, “Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity. You aren’t swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?

Mark 12:15 (NIV)

15 Should we pay or shouldn’t we?” But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. “Why are you trying to trap me?” he asked. “Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.”

Mark 12:16 (NIV)

16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, “Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.

Mark 12:17 (NKJV)

17 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at Him.

Mark 12:18 (NIV)

18 Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question.

Mark 12:19 (CJB)-M

19 “Rabbi, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no child, his brother must take the wife and have children to preserve the man’s family line.

Mark 12:20 (NIV)

20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children.

Mark 12:21 (NIV)

21 The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third.

Mark 12:22 (NKJV)

22 So the seven had her and left no offspring. Last of all the woman died also.

Mark 12:23 (NKJV)

23 Therefore, in the resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife.”

Mark 12:24 (NIV)

24 Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?

Mark 12:25 (NIV)

25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

Mark 12:26 (HCSB)

26 Now concerning the dead being raised—haven’t you read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him: I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob?

Mark 12:27 (NKJV)

27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly mistaken.”

Mark 12:28 (NIV)

28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

Mark 12:29 (AMP)

29 Jesus answered, The first and principal one of all commands is: Hear, O Israel, The Lord our God is one Lord;

Mark 12:30 (NKJV)

30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.

Mark 12:31 (NKJV)

31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Mark 12:32 (NKJV)

32 So the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He.

Mark 12:33 (NKJV)

33 And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

Mark 12:34 (NKJV)

34 Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” But after that no one dared question Him.

Mark 12:35 (CJB)

35 As Yeshua was teaching in the Temple, he asked, “How is it that the Torah-teachers say the Messiah is the Son of David?

Mark 12:36 (AMP)

36 David himself, [inspired] in the Holy Spirit, declared, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies [a footstool] under Your feet.

Mark 12:37 (AMP)

37 David himself calls Him Lord; so how can it be that He is his Son? Now the great mass of the people heard [Jesus] gladly [listening to Him with delight].

Mark 12:38 (NASB)-M

38 In His teaching He was saying: “Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and enjoy respectful greetings in the market places,

Mark 12:39 (NIV)

39 and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.

Mark 12:40 (NIV)

40 They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.”

Mark 12:41 (NASB)

41 And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums.

Mark 12:42 (NIV)

42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.

Mark 12:43 (NIV)

43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others.

Mark 12:44 (NASB)

44 for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

Mark Chapter 13

Mark 13:1 (NIV)

1 As he was leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!”

Mark 13:2 (CJB)

2 “You see all these great buildings?” Yeshua said to him, “They will be totally destroyed — not a single stone will be left standing!”

Mark 13:3 (NIV)

3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John and Andrew asked him privately,

Mark 13:4 (NIV)

4 “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are all about to be fulfilled?”

Mark 13:5 (NIV)

5 Jesus said to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you.

Mark 13:6 (NIV)

6 Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many.

Mark 13:7 (NIV)

7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.

Mark 13:8 (NIV)

8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.

Mark 13:9 (NIV)

9 “You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.

Mark 13:10 (NIV)

10 And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.

Mark 13:11 (NIV)

11 Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

Mark 13:12 (NKJV)

12 Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.

Mark 13:13 (NIV)

13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Mark 13:14 (NIV)

14 “When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong–let the reader understand–then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

Mark 13:15 (CJB)

15 If someone is on the roof, he must not go down and enter his house to take any of his belongings;

Mark 13:16 (CJB)

16 if someone is in the field, he must not turn back to get his coat.

Mark 13:17 (NIV)

17 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!

Mark 13:18 (NIV)

18 Pray that this will not take place in winter,

Mark 13:19 (CJB)

19 For there will be worse trouble at that time than there has ever been from the very beginning, when God created the universe, until now; and there will be nothing like it again.

Mark 13:20 (NIV)

20 If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.

Mark 13:21 (CJB)

21 “At that time, if anyone says to you, ‘Look! Here’s the Messiah!’ or, ‘See, there he is!’ — don’t believe him!

Mark 13:22 (AMP)

22 False Christs (Messiahs) and false prophets will arise and show signs and [work] miracles to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (those God has chosen out for Himself).

Mark 13:23 (CJB)

23 But you, watch out! I have told you everything in advance!

Mark 13:24 (NIV)

24 “But in those days, following that distress, “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;

Mark 13:25 (AMP)

25 And the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

Mark 13:26 (AMP)

26 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great (kingly) power and glory (majesty and splendor).

Mark 13:27 (AMP)

27 And then He will send out the angels and will gather together His elect (those He has picked out for Himself) from the four winds, from the farthest bounds of the earth to the farthest bounds of heaven.

Mark 13:28 (NIV)

28 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.

Mark 13:29 (NIV)

29 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door.

Mark 13:30 (NASB)

30 “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

Mark 13:31 (NIV)

31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Mark 13:32 (NASB)

32 “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.

Mark 13:33 (NASB)

33 “Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.

Mark 13:34 (CJB)

34 “It’s like a man who travels away from home, puts his servants in charge, each with his own task, and tells the doorkeeper to stay alert.

Mark 13:35 (NIV)

35 “Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back–whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn.

Mark 13:36 (AMP)

36 [Watch, I say] lest He come suddenly and unexpectedly and find you asleep.

Mark 13:37 (NASB)

37 “What I say to you I say to all, ‘Be on the alert!'”

Mark Chapter 14

Mark 14:1 (AMP)

1 It was now two days before the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and the chief priests and the scribes were all the while seeking to arrest [Jesus] by secrecy and deceit and put [Him] to death,

Mark 14:2 (NIV)

2 “But not during the Feast,” they said, “or the people may riot.”

Mark 14:3 (NIV)

3 While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head.

Mark 14:4 (NASB)

4 But some were indignantly remarking to one another, “Why has this perfume been wasted?

Mark 14:5 (AMP)

5 For it was possible to have sold this [perfume] for more than 300 denarii [a laboring man’s wages for a year] and to have given [the money] to the poor. And they censured and reproved her.

Mark 14:6 (AMP)

6 But Jesus said, Let her alone; why are you troubling her? She has done a good and beautiful thing to Me [praiseworthy and noble].

Mark 14:7 (AMP)

7 For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you will not always have Me.

Mark 14:8 (CJB)

8 What she could do, she did do — in advance she poured perfume on my body to prepare it for burial.

Mark 14:9 (NIV)

9 I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”

Mark 14:10 (NIV)

10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.

Mark 14:11 (NIV)

11 They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over.

Mark 14:12 (NIV)

12 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus’ disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”

Mark 14:13 (NIV)

13 So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him.

Mark 14:14 (NKJV)

14 Wherever he goes in, say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says, “Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?” ‘

Mark 14:15 (NIV)

15 He will show you a large upper room, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.”

Mark 14:16 (NIV)

16 The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.

Mark 14:17 (AMP)

17 And when it was evening, He came with the Twelve [apostles].

Mark 14:18 (NKJV)

18 Now as they sat and ate, Jesus said, “Assuredly, I say to you, one of you who eats with Me will betray Me.”

Mark 14:19 (NIV)

19 They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, “Surely not I?”

Mark 14:20 (NKJV)

20 He answered and said to them, “It is one of the twelve, who dips with Me in the dish.

Mark 14:21 (NKJV)

21 The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had never been born.”

Mark 14:22 (NASB)

22 While they were eating, He took some bread, and after a blessing He broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is My body.”

Mark 14:23 (NIV)

23 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it.

Mark 14:24 (CJB)

24 He said to them, “This is my blood, which ratifies the New Covenant, my blood shed on behalf of many people.

Mark 14:25 (NIV)

25 “I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God.”

Mark 14:26 (NIV)

26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Mark 14:27 (NIV)

27 “You will all fall away,” Jesus told them, “for it is written: “‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’

Mark 14:28 (AMP)

28 But after I am raised [to life], I will go before you into Galilee.

Mark 14:29 (NASB)

29 But Peter said to Him, “Even though all may fall away, yet I will not.”

Mark 14:30 (CJB)

30 Yeshua replied, “Yes! I tell you that this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will disown me three times!”

Mark 14:31 (NIV)

31 But Peter insisted emphatically, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the others said the same.

Mark 14:32 (NIV)

32 They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.”

Mark 14:33 (NIV)

33 He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled.

Mark 14:34 (NASB)

34 And He *said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.”

Mark 14:35 (AMP)

35 And going a little farther, He fell on the ground and kept praying that if it were possible the [fatal] hour might pass from Him.

Mark 14:36 (NIV)

36 “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”

Mark 14:37 (NASB)

37 And He *came and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?

Mark 14:38 (CJB)

38 Stay awake, and pray that you will not be put to the test — the spirit indeed is eager, but human nature is weak.”

Mark 14:39 (NASB)

39 Again He went away and prayed, saying the same words.

Mark 14:40 (NASB)

40 And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him.

Mark 14:41 (NIV)

41 Returning the third time, he said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour has come. Look, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Mark 14:42 (NIV)

42 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”

Mark 14:43 (NASB)

43 Immediately while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, *came up accompanied by a crowd with swords and clubs, who were from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

Mark 14:44 (AMP)

44 Now the betrayer had given them a signal, saying, The One I shall kiss is [the Man]; seize Him and lead [Him] away safely [so as to prevent His escape].

Mark 14:45 (NIV)

45 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Rabbi!” and kissed him.

Mark 14:46 (NIV)

46 The men seized Jesus and arrested him.

Mark 14:47 (NIV)

47 Then one of those standing near drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.

Mark 14:48 (AMP)

48 And Jesus said to them, Have you come out with swords and clubs as [you would] against a robber to capture Me?

Mark 14:49 (NASB)

49 “Every day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me; but this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures.”

Mark 14:50 (NIV)

50 Then everyone deserted him and fled.

Mark 14:51 (NIV)

51 A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him,

Mark 14:52 (CJB)

52 he slipped out of the nightshirt and ran away naked.

Mark 14:53 (AMP)

53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest, and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes were gathered together.

Mark 14:54 (AMP)

54 And Peter followed Him at a distance, even right into the courtyard of the high priest. And he was sitting [in the firelight] with the guards and warming himself at the fire.

Mark 14:55 (NIV)

55 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death, but they did not find any.

Mark 14:56 (NIV)

56 Many testified falsely against him, but their statements did not agree.

Mark 14:57 (NIV)

57 Then some stood up and gave this false testimony against him:

Mark 14:58 (NIV)

58 “We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this man-made temple and in three days will build another, not made by man.'”

Mark 14:59 (NASB)

59 Not even in this respect was their testimony consistent.

Mark 14:60 (NASB)

60 The high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, “Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?”

Mark 14:61 (AMP)

61 But He kept still and did not answer at all. Again the high priest asked Him, Are You the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), the Son of the Blessed?

Mark 14:62 (NKJV)

62 Jesus said, “I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.”

Mark 14:63 (NKJV)

63 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, “What further need do we have of witnesses?

Mark 14:64 (NKJV)

64 You have heard the blasphemy! What do you think?” And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.

Mark 14:65 (NKJV)

65 Then some began to spit on Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him, and to say to Him, “Prophesy!” And the officers struck Him with the palms of their hands.

Mark 14:66 (NIV)

66 While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came by.

Mark 14:67 (NKJV)

67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, “You also were with Jesus of Nazareth.”

Mark 14:68 (NKJV)

68 But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you are saying.” And he went out on the porch, and a rooster crowed.

Mark 14:69 (NIV)

69 When the servant girl saw him there, she said again to those standing around, “This fellow is one of them.”

Mark 14:70 (AMP)

70 But again he denied it falsely and disowned Him. And after a short while, again the bystanders said to Peter, Really, you are one of them, for you are a Galilean and your dialect shows it.

Mark 14:71 (NASB)

71 But he began to curse and swear, “I do not know this man you are talking about!”

Mark 14:72 (NIV)

72 Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.

Mark Chapter 15

Mark 15:1 (AMP)

1 And immediately when it was morning, the chief priests, with the elders and scribes and the whole council, held a consultation; and when they had bound Jesus, they took Him away [violently] and handed Him over to Pilate.

Mark 15:2 (NKJV)

2 Then Pilate asked Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?” He answered and said to him, “It is as you say.”

Mark 15:3 (NKJV)

3 And the chief priests accused Him of many things, but He answered nothing.

Mark 15:4 (NIV)

4 So again Pilate asked him, “Aren’t you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of.”

Mark 15:5 (NIV)

5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.

Mark 15:6 (AMP)

6 Now at the Feast he [was accustomed to] set free for them any one prisoner whom they requested.

Mark 15:7 (CJB)-M

7 There was in prison among the rebels who had committed murder during the insurrection a man called Barabbas.

Mark 15:8 (NIV)

8 The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did.

Mark 15:9 (AMP)

9 And he replied to them, Do you wish me to set free for you the King of the Jews?

Mark 15:10 (NIV)

10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him.

Mark 15:11 (NIV)

11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.

Mark 15:12 (NIV)

12 “What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?” Pilate asked them.

Mark 15:13 (NASB)

13 They shouted back, “Crucify Him!”

Mark 15:14 (NIV)

14 “Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!”

Mark 15:15 (NKJV)

15 So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified.

Mark 15:16 (CJB)

16 The soldiers led him away inside the palace (that is, the headquarters building) and called together the whole battalion.

Mark 15:17 (NIV)

17 They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him.

Mark 15:18 (CJB)

18 Then they began to salute him, “Hail to the King of the Jews!”

Mark 15:19 (CJB)

19 They hit him on the head with a stick, spat on him and kneeled in mock worship of him.

Mark 15:20 (NIV)

20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.

Mark 15:21 (NIV)

21 A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross.

Mark 15:22 (NIV)

22 They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull).

Mark 15:23 (NIV)

23 Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it.

Mark 15:24 (AMP)

24 And they crucified Him; and they divided His garments and distributed them among themselves, throwing lots for them to decide who should take what.

Mark 15:25 (AMP)

25 And it was the third hour (about nine o’clock in the morning) when they crucified Him.

Mark 15:26 (NLT2)

26 A sign was fastened to the cross, announcing the charge against him. It read, “The King of the Jews.”

Mark 15:27 (AMP)

27 And with Him they crucified two robbers, one on [His] right hand and one on His left.

Mark 15:28 (AMP)

28 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, He was counted among the transgressors.

Mark 15:29 (NIV)

29 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days,

Mark 15:30 (NIV)

30 come down from the cross and save yourself!”

Mark 15:31 (NIV)

31 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself!

Mark 15:32 (NASB)

32 “Let this Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!” Those who were crucified with Him were also insulting Him.

Mark 15:33 (AMP)

33 And when the sixth hour (about midday) had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour (about three o’clock).

Mark 15:34 (AMP)

34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?—which means, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me [deserting Me and leaving Me helpless and abandoned]?

Mark 15:35 (NASB)

35 When some of the bystanders heard it, they began saying, “Behold, He is calling for Elijah.”

Mark 15:36 (NIV)

36 One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.

Mark 15:37 (NASB)

37 And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last.

Mark 15:38 (AMP)

38 And the curtain [of the Holy of Holies] of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

Mark 15:39 (NIV)

39 And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”

Mark 15:40 (NIV)

40 Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome.

Mark 15:41 (NIV)

41 In Galilee these women had followed him and cared for his needs. Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem were also there.

Mark 15:42 (NASB)

42 When evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath,

Mark 15:43 (NIV)

43 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body.

Mark 15:44 (CJB)

44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead, so he summoned the officer and asked him if he had been dead awhile.

Mark 15:45 (AMP)

45 And when he learned from the centurion [that He was indeed dead], he gave the body to Joseph.

Mark 15:46 (NASB)

46 Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.

Mark 15:47 (AMP)

47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary [the mother] of Joses were [attentively] observing where He was laid.

Mark Chapter 16

Mark 16:1 (NIV)

1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.

Mark 16:2 (NIV)

2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb

Mark 16:3 (CJB)

3 They were asking each other, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?”

Mark 16:4 (NASB)

4 Looking up, they *saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large.

Mark 16:5 (NIV)

5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

Mark 16:6 (NASB)

6 And he *said to them, “Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.

Mark 16:7 (NASB)

7 “But go, tell His disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.'”

Mark 16:8 (NASB)

8 They went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

Mark 16:9 (NIV)

9 When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.

Mark 16:10 (AMP)

10 She went and reported it to those who had been with Him, as they grieved and wept.

Mark 16:11 (NIV)

11 When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.

Mark 16:12 (NIV)

12 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.

Mark 16:13 (NIV)

13 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.

Mark 16:14 (NIV)-M

14 Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven (apostles) as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

Mark 16:15 (NASB)

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Mark 16:18 (NASB)

18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Mark 16:19 (NIV)

19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.

Mark 16:20 (AMP)

20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied [it]. Amen (so be it).
