7:1Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
7:2And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
7:3For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
7:4And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
7:5Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
7:6He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7:7Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
7:8For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
7:9And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
7:10For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
7:11But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
7:12And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
7:13Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
7:14And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
7:15There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
7:16If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
7:17And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
7:18And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
7:19Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
7:20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
7:21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
7:22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
7:23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
7:24And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.
7:25For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
7:26The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
7:27But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
7:28And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.
7:29And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
7:30And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
7:31And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
7:32And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.
7:33And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;
7:34And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.
7:35And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.
7:36And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
7:37And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
8:1In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
8:2I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:
8:3And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.
8:4And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?
8:5And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.
8:6And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.
8:7And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.
8:8So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.
8:9And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
8:10And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
8:11And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
8:12And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
8:13And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
8:14Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
8:15And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
8:16And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.
8:17And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
8:18Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
8:19When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
8:20And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
8:21And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
8:22And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
8:23And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
8:24And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
8:25After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
8:26And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
8:27And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?
8:28And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
8:29And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
8:30And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
8:31And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
8:32And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.
8:33But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
8:34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
8:35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
8:36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
8:37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
8:38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
9:1And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
9:2And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
9:3And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
9:4And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
9:5And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
9:6For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
9:7And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
9:8And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
9:9And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.
9:10And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
9:11And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
9:12And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.
9:13But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
9:14And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
9:15And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
9:16And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
9:17And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
9:18And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
9:19He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
9:20And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
9:21And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
9:22And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
9:23Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
9:24And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
9:25When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
9:26And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
9:27But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
9:28And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
9:29And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
9:30And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.
9:31For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.
9:32But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
9:33And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
9:34But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.
9:35And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
9:36And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
9:37Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
9:38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
9:39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
9:40For he that is not against us is on our part.
9:41For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
9:42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
9:43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
9:44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
9:45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
9:46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
9:47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
9:48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
9:49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
9:50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
10:1And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.
10:2And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
10:3And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
10:4And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
10:5And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
10:6But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
10:7For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
10:8And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
10:9What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
10:10And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
10:11And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
10:12And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
10:13And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
10:14But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
10:15Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
10:16And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
10:17And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
10:18And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
10:19Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
10:20And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
10:21Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
10:22And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
10:23And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
10:24And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
10:25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
10:26And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
10:27And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
10:28Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
10:29And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
10:30But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
10:31But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
10:32And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
10:33Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
10:34And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
10:35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
10:36And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?
10:37They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
10:38But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
10:39And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:
10:40But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
10:41And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.
10:42But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
10:43But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
10:44And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
10:45For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
10:46And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
10:47And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
10:48And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
10:49And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
10:50And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
10:51And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
10:52And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
