Mark 1
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, Son of God.

2As it has been written in the Prophets: “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, "" Who will prepare Your way before You.

3A voice of one calling in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the LORD, "" Make His paths straight.”

4John came immersing in the wilderness, and proclaiming an immersion of conversion for forgiveness of sins, 5and there were going forth to him all the region of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and they were all immersed by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and a girdle of skin around his loins, and eating locusts and honey of the field, 7and he proclaimed, saying, “He comes—who is mightier than I—after me, of whom I am not worthy—having stooped down—to loose the strap of His sandals; 8I indeed immersed you in water, but He will immerse you in the Holy Spirit.”

9And it came to pass in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was immersed by John in the Jordan; 10and immediately coming up from the water, He saw the heavens dividing, and the Spirit coming down on Him as a dove; 11and a voice came out of the heavens, “You are My Son, the Beloved, in whom I delighted.”

12And immediately the Spirit puts Him forth into the wilderness, 13and He was there in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan, and He was with the beasts, and the messengers were ministering to Him.

14And after the delivering up of John, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God, 15and saying, “The time has been fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God has come near, convert and believe in the good news.”

16And walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon, and his brother Andrew, casting a drag into the sea, for they were fishers, 17and Jesus said to them, “Come after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men”; 18and immediately, having left their nets, they followed Him. 19And having gone on there a little, He saw James of Zebedee, and his brother John, and they were in the boat refitting the nets, 20and immediately He called them, and having left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, they went away after Him.

21And they go on to Capernaum, and immediately, on the Sabbaths, having gone into the synagogue, He was teaching, 22and they were astonished at His teaching, for He was teaching them as having authority, and not as the scribes. 23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, 24saying, “What [regards] us and You, Jesus the Nazarene? You came to destroy us; I have known You, who You are—the Holy One of God.” 25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silenced, and come forth out of him,” 26and the unclean spirit having convulsed him, and having cried with a great voice, came forth out of him, 27and they were all amazed, so as to reason among themselves, saying, “What is this? What new teaching [is] this? That with authority He also commands the unclean spirits, and they obey Him!” 28And the fame of Him went forth immediately to all the region of Galilee.

29And immediately, having come forth out of the synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John, 30and the mother-in-law of Simon was lying fevered, and immediately they tell Him about her, 31and having come near, He raised her up, having laid hold of her hand, and the fever left her immediately, and she was ministering to them.

32And evening having come, when the sun set, they brought to Him all who were ill and who were demoniacs, 33and the whole city was gathered together near the door, 34and He healed many who were ill of manifold diseases, and He cast forth many demons, and was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

35And very early, it being yet night, having risen, He went forth, and went away to a desolate place, and was praying there; 36and Simon and those with him went in quest of Him, 37and having found Him, they say to Him, “All seek You”; 38and He says to them, “We may go into the next towns, that there also I may preach, for—for this I came forth.” 39And He was preaching in their synagogues, in all Galilee, and is casting out the demons,

40and there comes to Him a leper, calling on Him, and kneeling to Him, and saying to Him, “If You may will, You are able to cleanse me.” 41And Jesus having been moved with compassion, having stretched forth the hand, touched him and says to him, “I will, be cleansed”; 42and He having spoken, immediately the leprosy went away from him, and he was cleansed. 43And having sternly charged him, immediately He put him forth, 44and says to him, “See [that] you may say nothing to anyone, but go away, show yourself to the priest, and bring near for your cleansing the things Moses directed, for a testimony to them.” 45And he, having gone forth, began to proclaim much, and to spread the thing abroad, so that He was no longer able to openly enter into the city, but He was outside in desolate places, and they were coming to Him from every quarter.
