Mark Chapter 8
1 In those days the multitude being very greatand havingnothing to eatJesus called his disciples unto himand saithunto them
2 I have compassion on the multitudebecause they have now beenwith me three daysand have nothing to eat
3 And if I send them away fasting to their own housesthey willfaint by the wayfor divers of them came from far.
4 And his disciples answered himFrom whence can a man satisfythese men with bread here in the wilderness
5 And he asked themHow many loaves have yeAnd they saidSeven.
6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the groundand hetook the seven loavesand gave thanksand brakeand gave tohis disciples to set before themand they did set them beforethe people.
7 And they had a few small fishesand he blessedand commandedto set them also before them.
8 So they did eatand were filledand they took up of thebroken meat that was left seven baskets.
9 And they that had eaten were about four thousandand he sentthem away.
10 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciplesandcame into the parts of Dalmanutha.
11 And the Pharisees came forthand began to question with himseeking of him a sign from heaventempting him.
12 And he sighed deeply in his spiritand saithWhy doth thisgeneration seek after a signverily I say unto youThereshall no sign be given unto this generation.
13 And he left themand entering into the ship again departed tothe other side.
14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take breadneither hadthey in the ship with them more than one loaf.
15 And he charged themsayingTake heedbeware of the leavenof the Phariseesand of the leaven of Herod.
16 And they reasoned among themselvessayingIt is because wehave no bread.
17 And when Jesus knew ithe saith unto themWhy reason ye because ye have no breadperceive ye not yetneitherunderstandhave ye your heart yet hardened
18 Having eyessee ye notand having earshear ye notand doye not remember
19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousandhow manybaskets full of fragments took ye upThey say unto him Twelve.
20 And when the seven among four thousandhow many baskets fullof fragments took ye upAnd they saidSeven.
21 And he said unto themHow is it that ye do not understand
22 And he cometh to Bethsaidaand they bring a blind man untohimand besought him to touch him.
23 And he took the blind man by the handand led him out of thetownand when he had spit on his eyesand put his hands uponhimhe asked him if he saw ought.
24 And he looked upand saidI see men as treeswalking.
25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyesand made himlook upand he was restoredand saw every man clearly.
26 And he sent him away to his housesayingNeither go into thetownnor tell it to any in the town.
27 And Jesus went outand his disciplesinto the towns ofCaesarea Philippiand by the way he asked his disciples saying unto themWhom do men say that I am
28 And they answeredJohn the Baptistbut some sayEliasandothersOne of the prophets.
29 And he saith unto themBut whom say ye that I amAnd Peteranswereth and saith unto himThou art the Christ.
30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
31 And he began to teach themthat the Son of man must suffermany thingsand be rejected of the eldersand of the chiefpriestsand scribesand be killedand after three days riseagain.
32 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took himand beganto rebuke him.
33 But when he had turned about and looked on his disciplesherebuked PetersayingGet thee behind meSatanfor thousavourest not the things that be of Godbut the things thatbe of men.
34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciplesalsohe said unto themWhosoever will come after melet himdeny himselfand take up his crossand follow me.
35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose itbut whosoevershall lose his life for my sake and the gospel sthe sameshall save it.
36 For what shall it profit a manif he shall gain the wholeworldand lose his own soul
37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul
38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words inthis adulterous and sinful generationof him also shall theSon of man be ashamedwhen he cometh in the glory of hisFather with the holy angels.
