Mark Chapter 9
1 And he said unto themVerily I say unto youThat there besome of them that stand herewhich shall not taste of deathtill they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peterand JamesandJohnand leadeth them up into an high mountain apart bythemselvesand he was transfigured before them.
3 And his raiment became shiningexceeding white as snowso asno fuller on earth can white them.
4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Mosesand they weretalking with Jesus.
5 And Peter answered and said to JesusMasterit is good forus to be hereand let us make three tabernaclesone fortheeand one for Mosesand one for Elias.
6 For he wist not what to sayfor they were sore afraid.
7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed themand a voice cameout of the cloudsayingThis is my beloved Sonhear him.
8 And suddenlywhen they had looked round aboutthey saw noman any moresave Jesus only with themselves.
9 And as they came down from the mountainhe charged them thatthey should tell no man what things they had seentill theSon of man were risen from the dead.
10 And they kept that saying with themselvesquestioning onewith another what the rising from the dead should mean.
11 And they asked himsayingWhy say the scribes that Eliasmust first come
12 And he answered and told themElias verily cometh firstandrestoreth all thingsand how it is written of the Son of man that he must suffer many thingsand be set at nought.
13 But I say unto youThat Elias is indeed comeand they havedone unto him whatsoever they listedas it is written of him.
14 And when he came to his discipleshe saw a great multitudeabout themand the scribes questioning with them.
15 And straightway all the peoplewhen they beheld himweregreatly amazedand running to him saluted him.
16 And he asked the scribesWhat question ye with them
17 And one of the multitude answered and saidMasterI havebrought unto thee my sonwhich hath a dumb spirit
18 And wheresoever he taketh himhe teareth himand he foameth and gnasheth with his teethand pineth awayand I spake tothy disciples that they should cast him outand they couldnot.
19 He answereth himand saithO faithless generationhow longshall I be with youhow long shall I suffer youbring himunto me.
20 And they brought him unto himand when he saw himstraightway the spirit tare himand he fell on the groundand wallowed foaming.
21 And he asked his fatherHow long is it ago since this cameunto himAnd he saidOf a child.
22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fireand into thewatersto destroy himbut if thou canst do any thinghavecompassion on usand help us.
23 Jesus said unto himIf thou canst believeall things arepossible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried outand saidwith tearsLordI believehelp thou mine unbelief.
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running togetherherebuked the foul spiritsaying unto himThou dumb and deafspiritI charge theecome out of himand enter no more intohim.
26 And the spirit criedand rent him soreand came out of himand he was as one deadinsomuch that many saidHe is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the handand lifted him upand hearose.
28 And when he was come into the househis disciples asked himprivatelyWhy could not we cast him out
29 And he said unto themThis kind can come forth by nothingbut by prayer and fasting.
30 And they departed thenceand passed through Galileeand hewould not that any man should know it.
31 For he taught his disciplesand said unto themThe Son ofman is delivered into the hands of menand they shall killhimand after that he is killedhe shall rise the third day.
32 But they understood not that sayingand were afraid to askhim.
33 And he came to Capernaumand being in the house he askedthemWhat was it that ye disputed among yourselves by theway
34 But they held their peacefor by the way they had disputedamong themselveswho should be the greatest.
35 And he sat downand called the twelveand saith unto themIf any man desire to be firstthe same shall be last of alland servant of all.
36 And he took a childand set him in the midst of themandwhen he had taken him in his armshe said unto them
37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my namereceiveth meand whosoever shall receive mereceiveth notmebut him that sent me.
38 And John answered himsayingMasterwe saw one casting outdevils in thy nameand he followeth not usand we forbadhimbecause he followeth not us.
39 But Jesus saidForbid him notfor there is no man whichshall do a miracle in my namethat can lightly speak evil ofme.
40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in mynamebecause ye belong to Christverily I say unto youheshall not lose his reward.
42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones thatbelieve in meit is better for him that a millstone werehanged about his neckand he were cast into the sea.
43 And if thy hand offend theecut it offit is better for theeto enter into life maimedthan having two hands to go intohellinto the fire that never shall be quenched
44 Where their worm dieth notand the fire is not quenched.
45 And if thy foot offend theecut it offit is better for theeto enter halt into lifethan having two feet to be cast intohellinto the fire that never shall be quenched
46 Where their worm dieth notand the fire is not quenched.
47 And if thine eye offend theepluck it outit is better forthee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eyethanhaving two eyes to be cast into hell fire
48 Where their worm dieth notand the fire is not quenched.
49 For every one shall be salted with fireand every sacrificeshall be salted with salt.
50 Salt is goodbut if the salt have lost his saltnesswherewith will ye season itHave salt in yourselvesand havepeace one with another.
