Mark 10

And he arose from there, and came to the border of Judaea, on the other side the Jordan. And great multitudes came to him there; and again he instructed them, as he was accustomed. And the Pharisees came to him, and, tempting him, inquired if it were lawful for a man to divorce his wife. He said to them: What did Moses command you? They said: Moses permitted us to write a bill of divorce, and send her away. Jesus answered and said to them: On account of the hardness of your heart, Moses wrote you this precept. But, from the beginning, God made them a male and a female. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and adhere to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh. Wherefore they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath conjoined, let not man separate. 10 And in the house, the disciples asked him again of this matter. 11 And he said to them: Whoever shall divorce his wife, and take another, committeth adultery. 12 And if a woman shall leave her husband, and marry another, she committeth adultery. 13 And they brought little children to him, that he might touch them. But his disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14 And when Jesus saw it, he was displeased; and he said to them, Suffer little children to come to me, and forbid them not; for of those like them is the kingdom of God. 15 Verily I say to you, That whoever doth not receive the kingdom of God, like a little child, shall not enter it. 16 And he took them in his arms, and laid his hand on them and blessed them. 17 And as he walked in the way, one ran and fell upon his knees, and asked him, and said: Good Teacher, what must I do, to inherit eternal life? 18 Jesus saith to him: Why callest thou me good? There is none good, but one, God. 19 Thou knowest the commandments; thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not give false testimony, thou shalt not defraud; honor thy father and thy mother. 20 And he answered, and said to him: Teacher, all these have I kept from my childhood. 21 And Jesus looked on him, and loved him, and said to him: One thing thou lackest. Go, sell all that thou possessest, and give to the poor, and there will be a treasure for thee in heaven; and take thy cross, and come after me. 22 And he was made sad by that speech, and went away sorrowing: for he possessed great riches. 23 And Jesus looked upon his disciples, and said to them: How hard for those who possess wealth, to enter into the kingdom of God! 24 And the disciples wondered at the remark. And Jesus, replied again, and said to them: My children, how hard it is, for those who trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God. 25 It is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. 26 And they wondered the more, and said among themselves: Who can obtain life! 27 And Jesus looked on them again, and said to them: With men, this is not possible, but with God it is; for with God all things are possible. 28 And Cephas began to say: Lo, we have left every thing, and have cleaved to thee. 29 Jesus answered and said: Verily I say to you, There is no man that leaveth houses, or brothers or sisters, or father or mother, or wife or children, for my sake, and for the sake of my tidings, 30 who will not receive a hundredfold, here in the present time, houses, and brothers and sisters, and mothers and children, and lands, with persecution; and in the world to come eternal life. 31 But many are first, who will be last; and last, who will be first. 32 And as they were in the way, going up to Jerusalem, Jesus went before them: and they were amazed, and walked after him with trembling. And he took his twelve, and began to tell them what was to befall him. 33 Behold, we are going to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be delivered up to the chief priests and the Scribes; and they will condemn him to die, and will deliver him over to the Gentiles. 34 And they will mock him, and will scourge him, and will spit in his face, and will kill him; and on the third day he will arise. 35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him, and said to him: Teacher, we desire that thou wouldst do for us all that we ask. 36 He saith to them: What would ye, that I should do for you? 37 They say to him: Grant to us, that one may sit on thy right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy glory. 38 But he said to them: Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink the cup, of which I drink? and to be baptized with the baptism, that I am baptized with? 39 They say to him: We are able. Jesus saith to them: The cup that I drink, ye will drink, and the baptism that I am baptized with, ye will be baptized with: 40 But that ye should sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine o give, except to those for whom it is prepared. 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to murmur against James and John. 42 And Jesus called them, and said to them: Ye know, that they who are accounted chiefs of the nations, are their lords; and their great men have authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you: but he that would be great among you, must be a servitor to you. 44 And he of you that would be first, must be servant to every one. 45 And also the Son of man came, not to be served, but to serve; and to give his life a ransom for many. 46 And they came to Jericho. And as Jesus went out of Jericho, he and his disciples and a great multitude; Timeus, the son of Timeus, a blind man, was sitting by the side of the way, and begging. 47 And he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarean; and he began to cry out, and to say: Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. 48 And many rebuked him, that he might be silent. But he cried out the more, and said: Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. 49 And Jesus stood, and directed him to be called. And they called the blind man, and said to him: Take courage: arise, he calleth thee. 50 And the blind man cast off his garment and arose, and went to Jesus. 51 Jesus said to him: What wilt thou, that I do for thee? And the blind man said to him: Rabbi, that I may have sight. 52 And Jesus said to him: Go; thy faith hath procured thee life. And immediately his sight was restored; and he followed after him.
