Mark 9

And he said to them, Truly I say to you, There are some here of them that stand by, who shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of Yahweh come with power.


2 And after six days Yahshua takes with him Peter, and Jacob, and John, and brings them up into a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them; 3 and his garments became glistening, very white, so as no fuller on earth can whiten them. 4 And there appeared to them EliYah with Moses: and they were talking with Yahshua. 5 And Peter answers and says to Yahshua, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for you, and one for Moses, and one for EliYah. 6 For he knew not what to answer; for they became severe afraid. 7 And there came a cloud overshadowing them: and there came a voice out of the cloud, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 8 And suddenly looking all around, they saw no one any more, save Yahshua only with themselves.


9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, save when the Son of man should have risen again from the dead. 10 And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising again from the dead should mean. 11 And they asked him, saying, How is it that the scribes say that EliYah must first come? 12 And he said to them, EliYah indeed comes first, and restores all things: and how is it written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things and be rejected? 13 But I say to you, that EliYah has come, and they have also done to him whatever they would, even as it is written of him.


14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great multitude about them, and scribes questioning with them. 15 And immediately all the multitude, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 16 And he asked them, About what are you disputing with them? 17 And one of the multitude answered him, Teacher, I brought to you my son, who has a dumb spirit; 18 and wherever it takes him, it dashes him down: and he foams, and grinds his teeth, and pines away: and I spoke to your disciples that they should cast it out; and they were not able. 19 And he answers them and says, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? bring him to me. 20 And they brought him to him: and when he saw him, immediately the spirit convulsed him grievously; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21 And he asked his father, How long time is it since this has come to him? And he said, From a child. 22 And frequently it has cast him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him: but if you can do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 23 And Yahshua said to him, If you can! All things are possible to him that believes. 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out, and said, I believe; help my unbelief. 25 And when Yahshua saw that a multitude came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him, You dumb and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26 And having cried out, and convulsed him much, he came out: and the boy became as one dead; so that many said, he is dead. 27 But Yahshua took him by the hand, and raised him up; and he arose. 28 And when he had come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, How is it that we could not cast it out? 29 And he said to them, This kind can come out by nothing, save by prayer and fasting.


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


33 And they came to Capernaum: and when he was in the house he asked them, What were you reasoning on the way? 34 But they held their peace: for they had disputed one with another on the way, who was the greatest. 35 And he sat down, and called the twelve; and he says to them, If any man would be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all. 36 And he took a little child, and set him in the middle of them: and taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 Whoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receives me: and whoever receives me, receives not me, but him that sent me.


38 John said to him, Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in your name; and we forbid him, because he followed not us. 39 But Yahshua said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me.

40 For he that is not against us is for us. 41 For whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink, because you are the Messiah’s, truly I say to you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. 42 And whoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it would be better for him if a great millstone should be hanged about his neck, and he should be cast into the sea.43 And if your hand cause you to stumble, cut it off: it is good for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having your two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire. 44 where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 45 And if your foot cause you to stumble, cut it off: it is good for you to enter into life lame, rather than having your two feet to be cast into Gehenna. 46 where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 47 And if your eye cause you to stumble, cast it out: it is good for you to enter into the kingdom of Yahweh with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into Gehenna; 48 where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For every one shall be salted with fire and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50 Salt is good: but if the salt has lost its saltness, with what will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace one with another.



Mark 10

And he arose from there, and comes into the borders of Judea and beyond the Jordan: and multitudes come together to him again; and, as he was accustomed, he taught them again.


2 And there came to him Pharisees, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? trying him. 3 And he answered and said to them, What did Moses command you? 4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. 5 But Yahshua said to them, For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. 6 But from the beginning of the creation, Male and female made he them. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife; 8 and the two shall become one flesh: so that they are no more two, but one flesh. 9 What therefore Yahweh has joined together, let not man put asunder. 10 And in the house the disciples asked him again of this matter. 11 And he says to them, Whoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, commits adultery against her: 12 and if she herself shall put away her husband, and marry another, she commits adultery.


13 And they were bringing to him little children, that he should touch them: and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But when Yahshua saw it, he was moved with indignation, and said to them, Permit the little children to come to me; forbid them not: for to such belongs the kingdom of Yahweh. 15 Truly I say to you, Whoever shall not receive the kingdom of Yahweh as a little child, he shall in no wise enter in it. 16 And he took them in his arms, and blessed them, laying his hands upon them.


17 And he was going forth into the way, there ran one to him, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18 And Yahshua said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good save one, even Yahweh. 19 You know the commandments, Do not kill, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother. 20 And he said to him, Teacher, all these things have I observed from my youth. 21 And Yahshua looking upon him loved him, and said to him, One thing you lack: go, sell whatever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. 22 But his face fell at the saying, and he went away sorrowful: for he was one that had great possessions.


23 And Yahshua looked all around, and says to his disciples, With what difficulty shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of Yahweh! 24 And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Yahshua answers again, and says to them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of Yahweh! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of Yahweh. 26 And they were very astonished, saying to him, Then who can be saved? 27 Yahshua looking upon them says, With men it is impossible, but not with Elohim: for all things are possible with Elohim. 28 Peter began to say to him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed you. 29 Yahshua said, Truly I say to you, There is no man that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or mother, or father, or children, or lands, for my sake and for the evangel’s sake, 30 but he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the age to come eternal life. 31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.


32 And they were on the way, going up to Jerusalem; and Yahshua was going before them: and they were amazed; and they that followed were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them the things that were to happen to him, 33 saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: 34 and they shall mock him, and shall spit upon him, and shall scourge him, and shall kill him; and after three days he shall rise again.


35 And there come near to him Jacob and John, the sons of Zebedee, saying to him, Teacher, we would that you should do for us whatever we shall ask of you. 36 And he said to them, What would you that I should do for you? 37 And they said to him, grant to us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and one on your left hand, in your glory. 38 But Yahshua said to them, You know not what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink? Or to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? 39 And they said to him, We are able. And Yahshua said to them, The cup that I drink you shall drink; and with the baptism that I am baptized shall you be baptized: 40 but to sit on my right hand or on my left hand is not mine to give; but it is for them for whom it has been prepared. 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be moved with indignation concerning Jacob and John. 42 And Yahshua called them to him, and says to them, You know that they who are accounted to rule over the Gentiles domineer over them; and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But it is not so among you: but whoever would become great among you, shall be your servant; 44 and whoever would be first among you, shall be bondservant of all. 45 For the Son of man also came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.


46 And they come to Jericho: and as he went out from Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the way side. 47 And when he heard that it was Yahshua the Nazarene, he began to cry out, and say, Yahshua, you son of David, have mercy on me. 48 And many rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried out the more a great deal, You son of David, have mercy on me. 49 And Yahshua stood still, and said, Call you him. And they call the blind man, saying to him, Be of good cheer: rise, he calls you. 50 And he, casting away his garment, leaping up, came to Yahshua. 51 And Yahshua answered him, and said, What will you that I should do to you? And the blind man said to him, Rabboni, that I may receive my sight. 52 And Yahshua said to him, Go your way; your faith has made you whole. And straightway he received his sight, and followed him in the way.



Mark 11

And when they draw near unto Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sends two of his disciples, 2 and says to them, Go your way into the village that is over against you: and straightway as you enter into it, you shall find a colt tied, on which no man ever yet sat; loose him, and bring him. 3 And if any one say to you, Why do you this? say, the Teacher has need of him; and straightway he will send him back here. 4 And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door outside in the open street; and they loose him. 5 And certain of them that stood there said to them, What are you doing, loosing the colt? 6 And they said to them even as Yahshua had said: and they let them go. 7 And they bring the colt to Yahshua, and cast on him their garments; and he sat upon him. 8 And many spread their garments upon the way; and other branches, which they had cut from the fields. 9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, Hosanna; Blessed is he that comes in the name of Yahweh: 10 Blessed is the kingdom that comes, the kingdom of our father David: Hosanna in the highest.


11 And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when he had looked all around upon all things, it being now evening he went out to Bethany with the twelve.


12 And on the next day, when they were come out from Bethany, he hungered. 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if perhaps he might find anything on it: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs. 14 And he answered and said to it, No man eat fruit from you to the age. And his disciples heard it.


15 And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and them that bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold the doves; 16 and he would not permit that any man should carry a vessel through the temple. 17 And he taught, and said to them, Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations? But you have made it a den of robbers. 18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, for all the multitude was astonished at his teaching.


19 And every evening he went forth out of the city.


20 And as they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots. 21 And Peter calling to remembrance says to him, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which you cursed is withered away. 22 And Yahshua answering says to them, Have faith in Yahweh. 23 Truly I say to you, Whoever shall say to this mountain, Be you taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he says comes to pass; he shall have it. 24 Therefore I say to you, All things whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. 25 And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.


27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders; 28 and they said to him, By what authority do you these things? Who gave you this authority to do these things? 29 And Yahshua said to them, I will ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men? answer me. 31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did you not believe him? 32 But should we say, From men they feared the people: for all truly held John to be a prophet. 33 And they answered Yahshua and say, We know not. And Yahshua says to them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.



Mark 12

And he began to speak to them in parables. A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and dug a pit for the winepress, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into another country. 2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruits of the vineyard. 3 And they took him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. 4 And again he sent to them another servant; and him they wounded in the head, and handled shamefully. 5 And he sent another; and him they killed: and many others; beating some, and killing some. 6 He had yet one, a beloved son: he sent him last to them, saying, They will reverence my son. 7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours. 8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him forth out of the vineyard. 9 What therefore will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to others.

10 Have you not read even this Scripture:

The stone which the builders rejected,

The same was made the head of the corner;

11 This was from Yahweh And it is marvelous in our eyes?


12 And they sought to lay hold on him; and they feared the multitude; for they perceived that he spoke the parable against them: and they left him, and went away. 13 And they send to him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might catch him in talk. 14 And when they were come, they say to him, Teacher, we know that you are true, and care not for any one; for you regard not the person of men, but of a truth teach the way of Elohim: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? 15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, Why do you make trial of me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it. 16 And they brought it. And he says to them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said to him, Caesar’s. 17 And Yahshua said to them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to Yahweh the things that are Yahweh’s. And they marveled greatly at him.


18 And there come to him Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying, 19 Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If a man’s brother die, and leave a wife behind him, and leave no child, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed to his brother. 20 There were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed; 21 and the second took her, and died, leaving no seed behind him; and the third likewise: 22 and the seven left no seed. Last of all the woman also died. 23 In the resurrection whose wife shall she be of them? For the seven had her to wife. 24 Yahshua said to them, Is it not for this cause that you err, that you know not the Scriptures, nor the power of Yahweh? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as angels in heaven. 26 But as touching the dead, that they are raised; have you not read in the book of Moses, in the place concerning the Bush, how Elohim spoke to him, saying, I am the Elohim of Abraham, and the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob? 27 He is not the Elohim of the dead, but of the living: you do greatly err.


28 And one of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together, and knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, What commandment is the first of all? 29 Yahshua answered, The first is, Hear, O Israel; Yahweh is our Elohim, Yahweh is one: 30 and you shall love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. 31 The second is this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32 And the scribe said to him, Of a truth, Teacher, you have well said that he is one; and there is none other but he: 33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. 34 And when Yahshua saw that he answered discreetly, he said to him, You are not far from the kingdom of Yahweh. And no man after that dared ask him any question.


35 And Yahshua answered and said, as he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that the Messiah is the son of David? 36 David himself said in the Holy Spirit,

Yahweh said to my Sovereign,

Sit you on my right hand,

Till I make your enemies the footstool of your feet.


37 David himself calls him Sovereign; and where is he his son? And the common people heard him gladly.


38 And in his teaching he said, Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk in long robes, and to have salutations in the marketplaces, 39 and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts: 40 they that devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers; these shall receive greater condemnation.


41 And he sat down over against the treasury, and beheld how the multitude cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a poor widow, and she cast in two mites, which make a quadrans. 43 And he called to him his disciples, and said to them, Truly I say to you, This poor widow cast in more than all they that are casting into the treasury: 44 for they all cast in of their superfluity; but she of her poverty cast in all that she had, even all her living.
