41-1:3††††† The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

41-1:17†††† And Jesus said to them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

41-1:18†††† And immediately they forsook their nets, and followed him.

41-1:24†††† Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

41-1:25†††† And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

41-1:27†††† And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority he commandeth even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.

41-1:33†††† And all the city was gathered at the door.

41-1:34†††† And he healed many that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him.

41-1:40†††† And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying to him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

41-1:41†††† And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith to him, I will; be thou clean.

41-1:42†††† And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

41-1:43†††† And he strictly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

41-1:44†††† And saith to him, See thou say nothing to any man; but go, show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.

41-1:45†††† But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, so that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.

41-2:6††††† But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

41-2:7††††† Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

41-2:8††††† And immediately, when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said to them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

41-2:9††††† Which is easier, to say to the sick with the palsy, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

41-4:2††††† And he taught them many things by parables, and said to them in his doctrine,

41-4:3††††† Hearken; Behold, a sower went out to sow:

41-4:4††††† And it came to pass as he sowed, some fell by the way-side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it.

41-4:12†††† That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

41-4:14†††† The sower soweth the word.

41-4:15†††† And these are they by the way-side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

41-4:16†††† And these are they likewise who are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

41-4:17†††† And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they relapse.

41-4:18†††† And these are they who are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

41-4:19†††† And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

41-4:20†††† And these are they who are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty-fold, some sixty, and some a hundred.

41-4:21†††† And he said to them, Is a candle brought to be put under a close vessel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?

41-4:22†††† For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither hath any thing been kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

41-4:26†††† And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

41-4:27†††† And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.

41-4:28†††† For the earth bringeth forth fruit of itself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

41-4:29†††† But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

41-4:30†††† And he said, To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?

41-4:31†††† It is like a grain of mustard-seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that are in the earth.

41-4:32†††† But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under its shade.

41-4:33†††† And with many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it.

41-4:34†††† But without a parable he spoke not to them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

41-4:35†††† And the same day, when the evening was come, he saith to them, Let us pass over to the other side.

41-4:36†††† And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the boat. And there were also with him other small boats.

41-4:37†††† And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was now full.

41-4:38†††† And he was in the hinder part of the boat, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say to him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

41-4:39†††† And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, Peace, be still: and the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

41-4:40†††† And he said to them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

41-4:41†††† And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

41-5:3††††† Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:

41-5:4††††† For he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

41-5:5††††† And always, night and day, he was on the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

41-5:27†††† When she had heard of Jesus, came in the crowd behind, and touched his garment.

41-6:3††††† Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Judas, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

41-6:4††††† But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kindred, and in his own house.

41-6:5††††† And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick persons, and healed them.

41-6:6††††† And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went around the villages teaching.

41-6:7††††† And he calleth to him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

41-6:8††††† And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no bag, no bread, no money in their purse:

41-6:9††††† But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

41-6:10†††† And he said to them, In whatever place ye enter into a house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

41-6:11†††† And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence shake off the dust under your feet, for a testimony against them. Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

41-6:12†††† And they went out and preached that men should repent.

41-6:13†††† And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

41-6:14†††† And king Herod heard of him (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist had risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him.

41-6:15†††† Others said, That it is Elijah. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

41-6:16†††† But when Herod heard of him, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he hath risen from the dead.

41-6:17†††† For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.

41-6:18†††† For John had said to Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.

41-6:19†††† Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

41-6:20†††† For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and observed him: and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

41-6:21†††† And when a convenient day had come, that Herod on his birth-day made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief men of Galilee;

41-6:22†††† And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod, and them that sat with him, the king said to the damsel, Ask of me whatever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

41-6:23†††† And he swore to her, Whatever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, to the half of my kingdom.

41-6:24†††† And she went forth, and said to her mother, What shall I ask? and she said, The head of John the Baptist.

41-6:25†††† And she came in forthwith with haste to the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou shouldst give me, immediately, in a dish, the head of John the Baptist.

41-6:26†††† And the king was exceeding sorry: yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes who sat with him, he would not reject her.

41-6:27†††† And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

41-6:28†††† And brought his head in a dish, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.

41-6:29†††† And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

41-6:30†††† And the apostles assembled themselves to Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

41-6:31†††† And he said to them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

41-6:32†††† And they departed into a desert place in a boat privately.

41-6:33†††† And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran on foot thither out of all cities, and out went them, and came together to him.

41-6:34†††† And Jesus, when he came out, saw many people, and was moved with compassion towards them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

41-6:35†††† And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came to him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:

41-6:36†††† Send them away, that they may go into the country around, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

41-6:37†††† He answered and said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they say to him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?

41-6:38†††† He saith to them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

41-6:39†††† And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.

41-6:40†††† And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

41-6:41†††† And when he had taken the five loaves, and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes he divided among them all.

41-6:42†††† And they all ate, and were satisfied.

41-6:43†††† And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

41-6:44†††† And they that ate of the loaves, were about five thousand men.

41-6:45†††† And immediately he constrained his disciples to get into the boat, and to go to the other side before to Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.

41-6:46†††† And when he had dismissed them, he departed to a mountain to pray.

41-6:47†††† And when evening was come, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.

41-6:48†††† And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary to them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh to them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

41-6:49†††† But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out.

41-6:50†††† (For they all saw him, and were troubled.) And immediately he talked with them, and saith to them, Be of good cheer: It is I; be not afraid.

41-6:51†††† And he went up to them into the boat; and the wind ceased: and they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

41-6:52†††† For they considered not the miracle of the loaves; for their heart was hardened.

41-6:53†††† And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

41-6:54†††† And when they had come out of the boat forthwith they knew him,

41-6:55†††† And ran through that whole region around, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

41-6:56†††† And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch, if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him, were healed.

Chapter 7:37 Verses

41 Mark

41-7:1††††† Then came together to him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, who came from Jerusalem.

41-7:2††††† And when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with defiled (that is to say with unwashed) hands, they found fault.

41-7:3††††† For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands often eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

41-7:4††††† And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there are, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, and of brazen vessels, and tables.

41-7:5††††† Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?

41-7:6††††† He answered and said to them, Well hath Isaiah prophesied concerning you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoreth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

41-7:7††††† But, in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

41-7:8††††† For 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.

41-7:9††††† And he said to them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition,

41-7:10†††† For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, Whoever curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

41-7:11†††† But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.

41-7:12†††† And ye suffer him no more to do aught for his father or his mother;

41-7:13†††† Making the word of God of no effect through your traditions, which ye have delivered: and many such like things ye do.

41-7:14†††† And when he had called all the people to him, he said to them, Hearken to me every one of you, and understand.

41-7:15†††† There 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.

41-7:16†††† If any man hath ears to hear, let him hear.

41-7:17†††† And when he had entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.

41-7:18†††† And he saith to them, Are ye so void of understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him.

41-7:19†††† Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all kinds of food.

41-7:20†††† And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.

41-7:21†††† For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

41-7:22†††† Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an
