Mark 13

And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, behold, what manner of stones and what manner of buildings! 2 And Yahshua said to him, Do you see these great buildings? There shall not be left here one stone upon another, which shall not be thrown down.


3 And as he sat on the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and Jacob and John and Andrew asked him privately, 4 Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign when these things are all about to be accomplished? 5 And Yahshua began to say to them, Take heed that no man lead you astray. 6 Many shall come in my name, saying, I am he; and shall lead many astray. 7 And when you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled: these things must come to pass; but the end is not yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there shall be earthquakes in divers places; there shall be famines: these things are the beginning of travail.


9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in synagogues shall you be beaten; and before governors and kings shall you stand for my sake, for a testimony to them. 10 And the good tidings must first be preached to all the nations. 11 And when they lead you to judgment, and deliver you up, be not anxious beforehand what you shall speak: but whatever shall be given you in that hour, that speak for it is not you that speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and the father his child; and children shall rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. 13 And you shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endures to the end, the same shall be saved.


14 But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where he ought not (let him that reads understand), then let them that are in Judea flee to the mountains: 15 and let him that is on the housetop not go down, nor enter in, to take anything out of his house: 16 and let him that is in the field not return back to take his cloak. 17 But woe to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray that it may not be in the winter. 19 For those days shall be tribulation, such as there has not been the like from the beginning of the creation which Elohim created until now, and never shall be. 20 And except Yahweh had shortened the days, no flesh would have been saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom he chose, he shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is the Messiah; or, Lo, there; believe it not: 22 for there shall arise false Messiahs and false prophets and shall show signs and wonders, that they may lead astray, if possible, the elect. 23 But take you heed: behold, I have told you all things before hand.


24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 and the stars shall be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send forth the angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.


28 Now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that the summer is near; 29 even so you also, when you see these things coming to pass, know you that he is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, until all these things be accomplished. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32 But of that day or that hour knows no one, not even the angels in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.


33 Take heed, watch and pray: for you know not when the time is. 34 It is as when a man, sojourning in another country, having left his house, and given authority to his servants, to each one his work, commanded also the porter to watch. 35 Watch therefore: for you know not when the master of the house comes, whether at evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning; 36 lest coming suddenly he should find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you I say to all, Watch.



Mark 14

Now after two days was the feast of the passover and the unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him with subtlety, and kill him: 2 for they said, Not during the feast, lest there shall be a tumult of the people.


3 And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster cruse of ointment of pure spikenard very costly; and she broke the cruse, and poured it over his head. 4 But there were some that had indignation among themselves, saying, To what purpose has this waste of the ointment been made? 5 For this ointment might have been sold for above three hundred denarii, and given to the poor. And they murmured against her. 6 But Yahshua said, let her alone; why do you trouble her? she has worked a good work on me. 7 For you have the poor always with you, and whenever you will you can do them good: but me you have not always. 8 She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for the burying. 9 And truly I say to you, Wherever the good tidings shall be preached throughout the whole world, that also which this woman has done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.


10 And Judah Iscariot, he that was one of the twelve, went away to the chief priests, that he might deliver him to them. 11 And they, when they heard it, were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently deliver him unto them.


12 And on the first day of unleavened bread, when they sacrificed the passover, his disciples say to him, Where will you that we go and make ready that you may eat the passover? 13 And he sends two of his disciples, and says to them, Go into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him; 14 and wherever he shall enter in, say to the master of the house, The Teacher says, Where is my guest-chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? 15 And he will himself show you a large upper room furnished and ready: and there make ready for us. 16 And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said to them: and they made ready the passover.


17 And when it was evening he comes with the twelve. 18 And as they sat and were eating, Yahshua said, Truly I say to you, One of you shall betray me, even he that eats with me. 19 They began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one by one, Is it I? 20 And he said to them, It is one of the twelve, he that dips with me in the dish. 21 For the Son of man goes, even as it is written of him: but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! Good were it for that man if he had not been born.


22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and when he had blessed, he broke it, and gave to them, and said, Take: this is my body. 23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave to them: and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 Truly I say to you, I shall no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of Yahweh.


26 And when they had sung an anthem, they went out to the mount of Olives.


27 And Yahshua says to them, All you shall be offended: for it is written, I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad. 28 However, after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee. 29 But Peter said to him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. 30 And Yahshua says to him, Truly I say to you, that you today, even this night, before the cock crows twice, shall deny me three times. 31 But he spoke exceeding vehemently, If I must die with you, I will not deny you. And in like manner also said they all.


32 And they come to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he says to his disciples, Sit here, while I pray. 33 And he takes with him Peter and Jacob and John, and began to be greatly amazed, and severely troubled. 34 And he says to them, My soul is very sorrowful even to death: remain here, and watch. 35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass away from him. 36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible to you; remove this cup from me: however not what I will, but what you will. 37 And he comes, and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter, Simon, Do you sleep? Could you not watch one hour? 38 Watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 39 And again he went away, and prayed, saying the same words. 40 And again he came, and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they knew not what to answer him. 41 And he comes the third time, and says to them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough; the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Arise, let us be going: behold, he that betrays me is at hand.


43 And immediately, while he yet spoke, comes Judah, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 Now he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomever I shall kiss, that is he; take him, and lead him away safely. 45 And when he was come, straightway he came to him, and says, Rabbi; and kissed him. 46 And they laid hands on him, and took him. 47 But a certain one of them that stood by drew his sword, and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. 48 And Yahshua answered and said to them, Are you come out, as against a robber, with swords and staves to seize me? 49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you took me not: but this is done that the Scriptures might be fulfilled. 50 And they all left him, and fled.


51 And a certain young man followed with him, having a linen cloth cast about him, over his naked body: and they lay hold on him; 52 but he left the linen cloth, and fled naked.


53 And they led Yahshua away to the high priest: and there come together with him all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. 54 And Peter had followed him afar off, even inside, into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the officers, and warming himself in the light of the fire. 55 Now the chief priests and the whole council sought witness against Yahshua to put him to death; and found it not. 56 For many bare false witness against him, and their witness agreed not together. 57 And there stood up certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, 58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands. 59 And not even so did their witness agree together. 60 And the high priest stood up in the middle, and asked Yahshua, saying, Do you answer nothing? What is it which these witness against you? 61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and says to him, Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Yahshua said, I am: and you shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. 63 And the high priest rent his clothes, and says, What further need have we of witnesses? 64 You have heard the blasphemy: what think you? And they all condemned him to be worthy of death. 65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say to him, Prophesy: and the officers received him with blows of their hands.


66 And as Peter was beneath in the court, there comes one of the maids of the high priest;

67 and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and says, You also were with the Nazarene, even Yahshua. 68 But he denied, saying, I neither know, nor understand what you say: and he went out into the porch; and the cock crowed. 69 And the maid saw him, and began again to say to them that stood by, This is one of them. 70 But he again denied it. And after a little while again they that stood by said to Peter, Of a truth you are one of them; for you are a Galilean. 71 But he began to curse, and to swear, I know not this man of whom you speak. 72 And immediately the second time the cock crowed. And Peter called to mind the word, how that Yahshua said to him, Before the cock crows twice, you shall deny me three times. And when he thought on that, he wept.



Mark 15

And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Yahshua, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. 2 And Pilate asked him, Are you the King of the Jews? And he answering says to him, You say. 3 And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4 And Pilate again asked him, saying, Do you answer nothing? Behold how many things they accuse you of. 5 But Yahshua no more answered anything; so much that Pilate marveled.


6 Now at the feast he used to release to them one prisoner, whom they asked of him. 7 And there was one called Barabbas, lying bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8 And the multitude went up and began to ask him to do as he was accustomed to do to them. 9 And Pilate answered them, saying, Are you wanting that I release to you the King of the Jews? 10 For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12 And Pilate again answered and said to them, What then shall I do to him whom you call the King of the Jews? 13 And they cried out again, Impale him. 14 And Pilate said to them, Why, what evil has he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Impale him. 15 And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released to them Barabbas, and delivered Yahshua, when he had scourged him, to be impaled.


16 And the soldiers led him away inside the court, which is the Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. 17 And they clothe him with purple, and weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on him; 18 and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! 19 And they struck his head with a reed, and spat upon him, and bowing their knees worshiped him. 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the purple, and put on him his garments. And they lead him out to impale him.


21 And they compel one passing by, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to go with them, that he might bear his torture stake.


22 And they bring him to the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 23 And they offered him wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. 24 And they impale him, and part his garments among them, casting lots upon them, what each should take. 25 And it was the third hour, and they impaled him. 26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 27 And with him they impale two robbers; one on his right hand, and one on his left. 28 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, And he was reckoned with transgressors. 29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha! you that destroy the temple, and build it in three days, 30 save yourself, and come down from the torture-stake. 31 In like manner also the chief priests mocking him among themselves with the scribes said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 32 Let the Messiah, the King of Israel, now come down from the torture stake, that we may see and believe. And they that were impaled with him reproached him.


33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Yahshua cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is, being interpreted, My El, my El, why have you forsaken me? 35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he is calling EliYah. 36 And one ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let be; let us see whether EliYah comes to take him down. 37 And Yahshua uttered a loud voice, and gave up the spirit. 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the spirit, he said, Truly this man was the Son of Elohim. 40 And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom were both Miriam Magdalene, and Miriam the mother of Jacob the less and of Joseph, and Salome; 41 who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered to him; and many other women that came up with him to Jerusalem.


42 And when even was now come, because it was the Preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43 there came Joseph of Arimathea, a counselor of honorable estate, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of Yahweh; and he boldly went in to Pilate, and asked for the body of Yahshua. 44 And Pilate marveled if he were already dead: and calling to him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 45 And when he learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph. 46 And he bought a linen cloth, and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb which had been hewn out of a rock; and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. 47 And Miriam Magdalene and Miriam the mother of Joseph beheld where he was laid.



Mark 16

And when the sabbath was past, Miriam Magdalene, and Miriam the mother of Jacob, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb near sunrising. 3 And they were saying among themselves, who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the tomb? 4 And looking up, they see that the stone is rolled back: for it was very great. 5 And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, arrayed in a white robe; and they were amazed. 6 And he says to them, Be not amazed: you seek Yahshua, the Nazarene, who has been impaled: he has been raised; he is not here: behold, the Place where they laid him! 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He goes before you into Galilee: there shall you see him, as he said to you. 8 And they went out, and fled from the tomb; for trembling and astonishment had come upon them: and they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid.


9 Now when he had been raised, early on the first day of the week he appeared first to Miriam Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10 She went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept, 11 And they, when they heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, disbelieved.


12 And after these things he was manifested in another form to two of them, as they walked, on their way into the country. 13 And they went away and told it to the rest: neither believed they them.


14 And afterward he was manifested to the eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them that had seen him after he was risen. 15 And he said to them, Go you into all the world, and preach the good tidings to the whole creation. 16 He that believes and is immersed shall be saved; but he that disbelieves shall be condemned. 17 And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new languages; 18 they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.


19 So then the Teacher Yahshua, after he had spoken to them, was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of Yahweh. 20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Master working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.
