Mark 1

And they went and set a guard to the sepulchre, and sealed the stone.THE beginning of the gospel of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way. The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare ye the way of the Lord; make smooth his paths. John baptized in the wilderness, and proclaimed the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out to him all the region of Judaea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and he baptized them in the river Jordan, while they confessed their sins. And this John was clad in raiment of camels' hair; and was girded with a cincture of skin about his loins; and his food was locusts and wild honey. And he proclaimed, and said: Behold, after me cometh one more powerful than I, of whom I am not worthy to stoop and untie the fastenings of his shoes. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. And it occurred, in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized in Jordan by John. 10 And immediately on his coming from the water, he saw the heavens cleft, and the Spirit descending like a dove upon him. 11 And there was a voice from the heavens: Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I delight. 12 And directly the Spirit carried him into the wilderness: 13 and he was there in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild beasts; and angels ministered to him. 14 After John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, and proclaimed the tidings, of the kingdom of God, 15 and said: The time is completed, and the kingdom of God is near. Repent ye, and believe the tidings. 16 And as he walked near the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them: Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. 18 And immediately they left their nets, and went after him. 19 And as he passed on a little, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in a ship, and mending their nets. 20 And he called them: and immediately they left Zebedee their father in the ship, with the hired servants, and went after him. 21 And when they entered Capernaum, he immediately taught on the sabbath in their synagogues. 22 And they were astonished at his doctrine; for he taught them, as having authority, and not as their Scribes. 23 And in their synagogue was a man, in whom was an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 and said: What have we to do with thee? Jesus thou Nazarean. Hast thou come to destroy us? I know thee, who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, and said: Shut thy mouth, and come out of him. 26 And the unclean spirit threw him down, and cried with a loud voice, and came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, and inquired one of another, and said: What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they obey him. 28 And immediately his fame spread into all the land of Galilee. 29 And he retired from the synagogue, and entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 And Simon's mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever: and they told him about her. 31 And he came, and took her hand, and raised her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered to them. 32 And in the evening at the setting of the sun, they brought to him all them that were diseased, and demoniacs. 33 And all the city was collected at the door. 34 And he healed many who labored under divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him. 35 And in the morning, he rose much before others, and retired to a solitary place, and there prayed. 36 And Simon and his associates sought for him. 37 And when they found him, they said to him: Every body is seeking for thee. 38 And he said to them: Go into the adjacent villages and towns; for there also I will preach, because therefore have I come. 39 And he preached in all their synagogues, in all Galilee, and cast out demons. 40 And a leper came to him, and fell at his feet, and entreated him, and said to him: If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 41 And Jesus had compassion on him, and stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said: I will; be thou clean. 42 And in that hour, his leprosy departed from him, and he became clean. 43 And he charged him, and sent him away, 44 and he said to him: See that thou tell no person; but go, show thyself to the priests, and offer an oblation on account of thy purification, as Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. 45 And he, as he went out, began to proclaim it much, and to divulge the matter; so that Jesus could not openly go into the city, but was without, in desert places; and they came to him from every quarter.
