Mark 10

1And having risen from there, he comes into the borders of Judea through the other side of the Jordan. And multitudes come together to him again, and, as he has practiced, he taught them again. 2And the Pharisees having approached, they demanded of him if it is permitted for a man to divorce a wife, testing him. 3And having answered, he said to them, What did Moses command you? 4And they said, Moses permitted to write a document of divorce, and to divorce her. 5But having answered, Jesus said to them, For your hard heart he wrote for you this commandment. 6But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female. 7Because of this a man will leave his father and mother behind, and will be bonded with his wife, 8and the two will be in one flesh. So then they are no more two, but one flesh. 9What therefore God has joined together, no man shall separate. 10And in the house the disciples questioned him again about the same thing. 11And he says to them, Whoever may divorce his wife, and will marry another, commits adultery against her. 12And if a woman should divorce her husband, and will be married to another, she commits adultery. 13And they brought children to him, so that he would touch them. And the disciples rebuked those who were bringing them. 14But when Jesus saw it, he was displeased, and said to them, Allow the children to come to me. Forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God. 15Truly I say to you, whoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a child, he will, no, not enter it. 16And having embraced them, while laying his hands upon them, he blessed them. 17And as he was going forth on the way, one man having ran to him, and having knelt to him, questioned him, Good teacher, what should I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18And Jesus said to him, Why do thou call me good? None is good except one, God. 19Thou know the commandments. Thou shall not commit adultery. Thou shall not murder. Thou shall not steal. Thou shall not testify falsely. Thou shall not defraud. Thou shall honor thy father and mother. 20And having answered, he said to him, Teacher, all these things I have observed from my youth. 21And having looked at him, Jesus loved him, and said to him, One thing thou lack. Go thou, sell as many things as thou have, and give to the poor, and thou will have treasure in heaven. And after taking up the cross, come, follow me. 22But having become somber at the saying, he went away sorrowing, for he was a man who has many possessions. 23And Jesus having looked around, he says to his disciples, How difficultly those who have riches will enter into the kingdom of God. 24And the disciples were astonished at his words. But again having answered, Jesus says to them, Children, how difficult it is for those who trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God. 25It is easier for a camel to go through the hole of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26And they were exceedingly astonished, saying among themselves, Then who can be saved? 27And having looked at them, Jesus says, With men, impossible, but not with God. For with God all things are possible. 28Peter began to say to him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. 29And having answered, Jesus said, Truly I say to you, there is no man who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, because of me, and because of the good news, 30but he will receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands-with persecutions-and in the coming age, eternal life. 31But many first will be last, and the last first. 32And they were on the road going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going ahead of them. And they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. And again having summoned the twelve, he began to tell them the things that were going to happen to him. 33Behold, we go up to Jerusalem. And the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scholars. And they will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the Gentiles. 34And they will mock him, and will scourge, and will spit upon him, and will kill him. And the third day he will rise. 35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come to him, saying, Teacher, we wish that thou would do for us whatever we ask. 36And he said to them, What do ye want me to do for you? 37And they said to him, Grant to us that we may sit, one at thy right hand, and one at thy left hand, in thy glory. 38But Jesus said to them, Ye know not what ye are asking. Are ye able to drink the cup that I drink? And to be immersed the immersion that I am immersed? 39And they said to him, We are able. And Jesus said to them, Ye will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and the immersion that I am immersed ye will be immersed. 40But to sit at my right hand or at my left hand is not mine to give, but for whom it has been prepared. 41And when the ten heard it they began to indignant about James and John. 42And having summoned them, Jesus says to them, Ye know that those who presume to rule over the Gentiles, lord over them, and their great men have power over them. 43But it is not so among you. Instead, whoever may want to become great among you, will be your helper, 44and whoever of you may want to become first, will be a bondman of all. 45For the Son of man also came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many. 46And they come to Jericho. And as he went out from Jericho, and his disciples and a considerable crowd, Bartimaeus, the blind son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road begging. 47And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, Jesus, thou son of David, be merciful to me. 48And many rebuked him, that he would be quiet, but he cried out much more, Thou son of David, be merciful to me. 49And having stood still, Jesus said for him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying to him, Cheer up. Arise, he calls thee. 50And he, having thrown off his garment, having risen, came to Jesus. 51And having answered, Jesus says to him, What do thou want I would do to thee? And the blind man said to him, Rabboni, that I may receive my sight. 52And Jesus said to him, Go thou, thy faith has healed thee. And straightaway he received his sight, and followed him on the way.
