Mark Chapter Eight

1: In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
 
2: I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:
 
3: And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.
 
4: And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?
 
5: And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.
 
6: And 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.
 
7: And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.
 
8: So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.
 
9: And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
 
10: And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
 
11: And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
 
12: And 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.
 
13: And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
 
14: Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
 
15: And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
 
16: And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.
 
17: And 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?
 
18: Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
 
19: When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
 
20: And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
 
21: And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
 
22: And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
 
23: And 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.
 
24: And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
 
25: After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
 
26: And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
 
27: And 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?
 
28: And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
 
29: And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
 
30: And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
 
31: And 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.
 
32: And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.
 
33: But 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.
 
34: And 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.
 
35: For 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.
 
36: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
 
37: Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
 
38: Whosoever 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.

Mark Chapter Nine

1: And 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.
 
2: And 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.
 
3: And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
 
4: And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
 
5: And 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.
 
6: For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
 
7: And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
 
8: And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
 
9: And 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.
 
10: And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
 
11: And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
 
12: And 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.
 
13: But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
 
14: And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
 
15: And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
 
16: And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
 
17: And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
 
18: And 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.
 
19: He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
 
20: And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
 
21: And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
 
22: And 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.
 
23: Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
 
24: And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
 
25: When 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.
 
26: And 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.
 
27: But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
 
28: And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
 
29: And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
 
30: And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.
 
31: For 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.
 
32: But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
 
33: And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
 
34: But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.
 
35: And 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.
 
36: And 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,
 
37: Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
 
38: And 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.
 
39: But 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.
 
40: For he that is not against us is on our part.
 
41: For 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.
 
42: And 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.
 
43: And 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:
 
44: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
 
45: And 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:
 
46: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
 
47: And 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:
 
48: Where their worm dieth 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 have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

22: Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:
 
23: And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the LORD:
 
24: And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering before the LORD.
 
25: And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn them upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the LORD: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
 
26: And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron’s consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before the LORD: and it shall be thy part.
 
27: And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:
 
28: And it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’ by a statute for ever from the children of Israel: for it is an heave offering: and it shall be an heave offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings, even their heave offering unto the LORD.
 
29: And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons’ after him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.
 
30: And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to minister in the holy place.
 
31: And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and seethe his flesh in the holy place.
 
32: And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
 
33: And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.
 
34: And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.
 
35: And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou consecrate them.
 
36: And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.
 
37: Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.
 
38: Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually.
 
39: The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even:
 
40: And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.
 
41: And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
 
42: This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee
 
43: And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.
 
44: And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest’s office.
 
45: And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.
 
46: And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.
