Mark 10
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1AND he departed from thence, and came to the border of Judaea, at the crossing of the Jordan; and a great many people went to him there, and he taught them again, as he was accustomed to do.

2And the Pharisees came up to him, tempting him and asking, Is it lawful for a man to desert his wife? 3He said to them, What did Moses command you? 4They said, Moses gave us permission to write a letter of separation, and then to divorce. 5Jesus answered and said to them, It was because of the hardness of your heart, that he wrote for you this particular law. 6But from the very beginning God made them male and female. 7For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and follow his wife. 8And both shall be one flesh; henceforth they are not two, but one flesh. 9What therefore God has joined, let no man separate.

10And his disciples again asked him about this in the house. 11And he said to them, Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery. 12And if a woman divorces her husband, and marries another, she commits adultery.

13And they brought little boys to him, that he might touch them; but his disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14But when Jesus saw it, he was displeased, and he said to them, Allow the little boys to come to me, and do not forbid them; for the kingdom of God is for such as these. 15Truly I say to you, Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a little boy shall not enter it. 16Then he took them in his arms, and put his hand on them, and blessed them.

17While he was on the way, a man came ran up and fell on his knees and he asked him, saying, O good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit life eternal? 18Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? There is no one who is good, except the one God. 19You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not murder, Do not bear false witness, Do not oppress, Honor your father and mother. 20But he answered and said to him, Teacher, all of these I have obeyed from my boyhood. 21Then Jesus looked at him and loved him, and he said to him, You lack one thing; go, sell everything you have, and give it to the poor, and you shall have a treasure in heaven; and take up your cross and follow me. 22But he felt sad because of this saying, and he went away depressed; for he had great wealth.

23Then Jesus looked at his disciples and said to them, How hard it is for those who have wealth, to enter into the kingdom of God! 24But the disciples were surprised at his words. And Jesus answered again and said to them, My sons, how hard it is for those who trust in their wealth, to enter into the kingdom of God! 25It is easier for a rope to enter through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26But they were the more surprised, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? 27Jesus looked at them, and said to them, With men this is impossible, but not with God; for everything is possible with God.

28Then Peter began to say, Behold, we have left everything and followed you. 29Jesus answered and said, Truly I say to you, There is no man who leaves houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields, for my sake and for the sake of my gospel, 30Who shall not receive now, in this time, an hundredfold, houses, and brothers and sisters, and maidservants, and children, and fields, and other worldly pursuits, and in the world to come life everlasting. 31Many who are first shall be last, and the last first.

32While they were going up on their way to Jerusalem, Jesus was ahead of them; and they were amazed; and they followed him with fear. And he took his twelve aside, and began to tell them what was surely to happen to him. 33Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man will be delivered to the high priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him to the Gentiles. 34And they will mock him, and scourge him, and spit in his face, and kill him; and on the third day he will rise up.

35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came up to him and said to him, Teacher, we wish you would do for us whatever we ask. 36He said to them, What do you wish me to do for you? 37They said to him, Grant us to sit, one at your right and one at your left, in your glory. 38He said to them, You do not know what you are asking; can you drink the cup which I drink? and be baptized with the baptism with which I am to be baptized? 39They said to him, We can. Jesus said to them, The cup which I shall drink, you will drink too; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized too; 40But to sit at my right and at my left, that is not mine to give; except to those for whom it is prepared.

41When the ten heard it, they began to murmur at James and John. 42Jesus called them and said to them, You know that those who consider themselves princes of the people, are their owners too; and their officials rule over them. 43Let not this be so among you; but he who wishes to be great among you, let him be a minister to you. 44And anyone of you who wishes to be first, let him be a servant of every man. 45For also the Son of man did not come to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life as a salvation for the sake of many.

46And they came to Jericho; and when Jesus went out of Jericho with his disciples and a large crowd, a blind man, Timaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. 47When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry aloud and say, O son of David, have mercy on me. 48And many rebuked him to keep quiet, but he cried out the more, saying, O son of David, have mercy on me. 49Then Jesus stopped and commanded to call him. So they called the blind man, and said to him, Have courage, rise; he is calling you. 50And the blind man threw off his robe, and he got up, and went to Jesus. 51Jesus said to him, What do you wish me to do for you? The blind man said to him, Master, that I may see. 52And Jesus said to him, See; your faith has healed you. And immediately he saw, and went on the way.
