Book 48 Mark
THE HOLY GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST ACCORDING TO ST. MARK
St. Mark, the disciple and interpreter of St. Peter (saith St. Jerome),
Mark Chapter 1
The preaching of John the Baptist. Christ is baptized by him. He calls
1:1. The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
1:2. As it is written in Isaias the prophet: Behold I send my angel
1:3. A voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare ye the way of the
1:4. John was in the desert, baptizing and preaching the baptism of
1:5. And there went out to him all the country of Judea and all they of
1:6. And John was clothed camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his
1:7. And he preached, saying: There cometh after me one mightier than I,
1:8. I have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the
1:9. And it came to pass, in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of
1:10. And forthwith coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens open
1:11. And there came a voice from heaven: Thou art my beloved Son; in
1:12. And immediately the Spirit drove him out into the desert.
1:13. And he was in the desert forty days and forty nights, and was
1:14. And after that John was delivered up, Jesus came in Galilee,
1:15. And saying: The time is accomplished and the kingdom of God is at
1:16. And passing by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his
1:17. And Jesus said to them: Come after me; and I will make you to
1:18. And immediately leaving their nets, they followed him.
1:19. And going on from thence a little farther, he saw James the son of
1:20. And forthwith he called them. And leaving their father Zebedee in
1:21. And they entered into Capharnaum: and forthwith upon the sabbath
1:22. And they were astonished at his doctrine. For he was teaching them
1:23. And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and
1:24. Saying: What have we to do with thee, Jesus of Nazareth? Art thou
1:25. And Jesus threatened him, saying: Speak no more, and go out of the
1:26. And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying out with a loud
1:27. And they were all amazed insomuch that they questioned among
1:28. And the fame of him was spread forthwith into all the country of
1:29. And immediately going out of the synagogue they came into the
1:30. And Simon's wife's mother lay in a fit of a fever: and forthwith
1:31. And coming to her, he lifted her up, taking her by the hand; and
1:32. And when it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all
1:33. And all the city was gathered together at the door.
1:34. And he healed many that were troubled with divers diseases. And
1:35. And rising very early, going out, he went into a desert place: and
1:36. And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.
1:37. And when they had found him, they said to him: All seek for thee.
1:38. And he saith to them: Let us go into the neighbouring towns and
1:39. And he was preaching in their synagogues and in all Galilee and
1:40. And there came a leper to him, beseeching him and kneeling down,
1:41. And Jesus, having compassion on him, stretched forth his hand and
1:42. And when he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him:
1:43. And he strictly charged him and forthwith sent him away.
1:44. And he saith to him: See thou tell no one; but go, shew thyself to
1:45. But he being gone out, began to publish and to blaze abroad the
Mark Chapter 2
Christ heals the sick of the palsy. He calls Matthew and excuses his
2:1. And again he entered into Capharnaum after some days.
2:2. And it was heard that he was in the house. And many came together,
2:3. And they came to him, bringing one sick of the palsy, who was
2:4. And when they could not offer him unto him for the multitude, they
2:5. And when Jesus had seen their faith, he saith to the sick of the
2:6. And there were some of the scribes sitting there and thinking in
2:7. Why doth this man speak thus? He blasphemeth. Who can forgive sins,
2:8. Which Jesus presently knowing in his spirit that they so thought
2:9. Which is easier, to say to the sick of the palsy: Thy sins are
2:10. But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to
2:11. I say to thee: Arise. Take up thy bed and go into thy house.
2:12. And immediately he arose and, taking up his bed, went his way in
2:13. And he went forth again to the sea side: and all the multitude
2:14. And when he was passing by, he saw Levi, the son of Alpheus,
2:15. And it came to pass as he sat at meat in his house, many Publicans
2:16. And the scribes and the Pharisees, seeing that he ate with
2:17. Jesus hearing this, saith to them: They that are well have no need
2:18. And the disciples of John and the Pharisees used to fast. And
2:19. And Jesus saith to them: Can the children of the marriage fast, as
2:20. But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away
2:21. No man seweth a piece of raw cloth to an old garment: otherwise
2:22. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: otherwise the wine
2:23. And it came to pass again, as the Lord walked through the corn
2:24. And the Pharisees said to him: Behold, why do they on the sabbath
2:25. And he said to them: Have you never read what David did when he
2:26. How he went into the house of God, under Abiathar the high priest,
2:27. And he said to them: The sabbath was made for man, and not man for
2:28. Therefore the Son of man is Lord of the sabbath also.
Mark Chapter 3
Christ heals the withered hand. He chooses the twelve. He confutes the
3:1. And he entered again into the synagogue: and there was a man there
3:2. And they watched him whether he would heal on the sabbath days,
3:3. And he said to the man who had the withered hand: Stand up in the
3:4. And he saith to them: Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days,
3:5. And looking round about on them with anger, being grieved for the
3:6. And the Pharisees going out, immediately made a consultation with
3:7. But Jesus retired with his disciples to the sea; and a great
3:8. And from Jerusalem, and from Idumea and from beyond the Jordan. And
3:9. And he spoke to his disciples that a small ship should wait on him,
3:10. For he healed many, so that they pressed upon him for to touch
3:11. And the unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him:
3:12. Thou art the Son of God. And he strictly charged them that they
3:13. And going up into a mountain, he called unto him whom he would
3:14. And he made that twelve should be with him, and that he might send
3:15. And he gave them power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils.
3:16. And to Simon he gave the name Peter:
3:17. And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and
3:18. And Andrew and Philip, and Bartholomew and Matthew, and Thomas and
3:19. And Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
3:20. And they come to a house, and the multitude cometh together again,
3:21. And when his friends had heard of it, they went out to lay hold on
3:22. And the scribes who were come down from Jerusalem, said: He hath
3:23. And after he had called them together, he said to them in
3:24. And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot
3:25. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
3:26. And if Satan be risen up against himself, he is divided, and
3:27. No man can enter into the house of a strong man and rob him of his
3:28. Amen I say to you that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of
3:29. But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never
3:30. Because they said: He hath an unclean spirit.
3:31. And his mother and his brethren came; and standing without, sent
3:32. And the multitude sat about him; and they say to him: Behold thy
3:33. And answering them, he said: Who is my mother and my brethren?
3:34. And looking round about on them who sat about him, he saith:
3:35. For whosoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and my
Mark Chapter 4
The parable of the sower. Christ stills the tempest at sea.
4:1. And again he began to teach by the sea side; and a great multitude
4:2. And he taught them many things in parables, and said unto them in
4:3. Hear ye: Behold, the sower went out to sow.
4:4. And whilst he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the birds of
4:5. And other some fell upon stony ground, where it had not much earth;
4:6. And when the sun was risen, it was scorched; and because it had no
4:7. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up, and choked it,
4:8. And some fell upon good ground; and brought forth fruit that grew
4:9. And he said: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
4:10. And when he was alone, the twelve that were with him asked him the
4:11. And he said to them: To you it is given to know the mystery of the
4:12. That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may
That seeing they may see, etc... in punishment of their wilfully
4:13. And he saith to them: Are you ignorant of this, parable? and how
4:14. He that soweth, soweth the word.
4:15. And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown, and as
4:16. And these likewise are they that are sown on the stony ground: who
4:17. And they have no root in themselves, but are only for a time: and
4:18. And others there are who are sown among thorns: these are they
4:19. And the cares of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and
4:20. And these are they who are sown upon the good ground, who hear the
4:21. And he said to them: Doth a candle come in to be put under a
4:22. For there is nothing hid, which shall not be made manifest:
4:23. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
4:24. And he said to them: Take heed what you hear. In what measure you
4:25. For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not,
4:26. And he said: So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast
4:27. And should sleep, and rise, night and day, and the seed should
4:28. For the earth of itself bringeth forth fruit, first the blade,
4:29. And when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the
4:30. And he said: To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? or to what
4:31. It is as a grain of mustard seed: which when it is sown in the
4:32. And when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all
4:33. And with many such parables, he spoke to them the word, according
4:34. And without parable he did not speak unto them; but apart, he
4:35. And he saith to them that day, when evening was come: Let us pass
4:36. And sending away the multitude, they take him even as he was in
4:37. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the
4:38. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, sleeping upon a pillow;
4:39. And rising up, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea: Peace, be
4:40. And he said to them: Why are you fearful? have you not faith yet?
Mark Chapter 5
Christ casts out a legion of devils: he heals the issue of blood, and
5:1. And they came over the strait of the sea, into the country of the
5:2. And as he went out of the ship, immediately there met him out of
5:3. Who had his dwelling in the tombs, and no man now could bind him,
5:4. For having been often bound with fetters and chains, he had burst
5:5. And he was always day and night in the monuments and in the
5:6. And seeing Jesus afar off, he ran and adored him.
5:7. And crying with a loud voice, he said: What have I to do with thee,
5:8. For he said unto him: Go out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
5:9. And he asked him: What is thy name? And he saith to him: My name is
5:10. And he besought him much, that he would not drive him away out of
5:11. And there was there near the mountain a great herd of swine,
5:12. And the spirits besought him, saying: Send us into the swine, that
5:13. And Jesus immediately gave them leave. And the unclean spirits
5:14. And they that fed them fled, and told it in the city and in the
5:15. And they came to Jesus, and they see him that was troubled with
5:16. And they that had seen it, told them, in what manner he had been
5:17. And they began to pray him that he would depart from their coasts.
5:18. And when he went up into the ship, he that had been troubled with
5:19. And he admitted him not, but saith him: Go into thy house to thy
5:20. And he went his way, and began to publish in Decapolis how great
5:21. And when Jesus had passed again in the ship over the strait, a
5:22. And there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue named Jairus:
5:23. And he besought him much, saying: My daughter is at the point of
5:24. And he went with him, and a great multitude followed him, and they
5:25. And a woman who was under an issue of blood twelve years,
5:26. And had suffered many things from many physicians; and had spent
5:27. When she had heard of Jesus, came in the crowd behind him, and
5:28. For she said: If I shall touch but his garment, I shall be whole.
5:29. And forthwith the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt
5:30. And immediately Jesus knowing in himself the virtue that had
5:31. And his disciples said to him: Thou seest the multitude thronging
5:32. And he looked about to see her who had done this.
5:33. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her,
5:34. And he said to her: Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole: go
5:35. While he was yet speaking, some come from the ruler of the
5:36. But Jesus having heard the word that was spoken, saith to the
5:37. And he admitted not any man to follow him, but Peter, and James,
5:38. And they cone to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he
5:39. And going in, he saith to them Why make you this ado, and weep?
5:40. And they laughed him to scorn. But he having put them all out,
5:41. And taking the damsel by the hand, he saith to her: Talitha cumi,
5:42. And immediately the damsel rose up, and walked: and she was twelve
5:43. And he charged them strictly that no man should know it: and
Mark Chapter 6
Christ teaches at Nazareth: he sends forth the twelve apostles: he feeds
6:1. And going out from thence, he went into his own country; and his
6:2. And when the Sabbath was come, he began to teach in the synagogue:
6:3. Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James,
6:4. And Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honour, but in his
6:5. And he could not do any miracles there, only that he cured a few
He could not... Not for want of power, but because he would not work
6:6. And he wondered because of their unbelief, and he went through the
6:7. And he called the twelve; and began to send them two and two, and
6:8. And he commanded them that they should take nothing for the way,
6:9. But to be shod with sandals, and that they should not put on two
6:10. And he said to them: Wheresoever you shall enter into an house,
6:11. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you; going forth
6:12. And going forth they preached men should do penance:
6:13. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that
6:14. And king Herod heard, (for his name was made manifest,) and he
6:15. And others said: It is Elias. But others said: It is a prophet, as
6:16. Which Herod hearing, said: John whom I beheaded, he is risen again
6:17. For Herod himself had sent and apprehended John, and bound him
6:18. For John said to Herod: It is not lawful for thee to have thy
6:19. Now Herodias laid snares for him: and was desirous to put him to
6:20. For Herod feared John, knowing him to be a just and holy man: and
And kept him... That is, from the designs of Herodias; and for fear of
6:21. And when a convenient day was come, Herod made a supper for his
6:22. And when the daughter of the same Herodias had come in, and had
6:23. And he swore to her: Whatsoever thou shalt ask I will give thee,
6:24. Who when she was gone out, said to her mother, What shall I ask?
6:25. And when she was come in immediately with haste to the king, she
6:26. And the king was struck sad. Yet because of his oath, and because
6:27. But sending an executioner, he commanded that his head should be
6:28. And he beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head in a dish:
6:29. Which his disciples hearing came, and took his body, and laid it
6:30. And the apostles coming together unto Jesus, related to him all
6:31. And he said to them: Come apart into a desert place, and rest a
6:32. And going up into a ship, they went into a desert place apart.
6:33. And they saw them going away, and many knew: and they ran flocking
6:34. And Jesus going out saw a great multitude: and he had compassion
6:35. And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came to him,
6:36. Send them away, that going into the next villages and towns, they
6:37. And he answering said to them: Give you them to eat. And they said
6:38. And he saith to them: How many loaves have you? go and see. And
6:39. And he commanded them that they should make them all sit down by
6:40. And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds and by fifties.
6:41. And when he had taken the five loaves, and the two fishes: looking
6:42. And they all did eat, and had their fill.
6:43. And they took up the leavings, twelve full baskets of fragments,
6:44. And they that did eat, were five thousand men.
6:45. And immediately he obliged his disciples to go up into the ship,
6:46. And when he had dismissed them, he went up to the mountain to
6:47. And when it was late, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and
6:48. And seeing them labouring in rowing, (for the wind was against
6:49. But they seeing him walking upon the sea, thought it was an
6:50. For they all saw him, and were troubled bled. And immediately he
6:51. And he went up to them into the ship, and the wind ceased: and
6:52. For they understood not concerning the loaves; for their heart was
6:53. And when they had passed over, they came into the land of
6:54. And when they were gone out of the ship, immediately they knew
6:55. And running through that whole country, they began to carry about
6:56. And whithersoever he entered, into towns or into villages or
Mark Chapter 7
Christ rebukes the Pharisees. He heals the daughter of the woman of
7:1. And there assembled together unto him the Pharisees and some of the
7:2. And when they had seen some of his disciples eat bread with common,
7:3. For the Pharisees and all the Jews eat not without often washing
7:4. And when they come from the market, unless they be washed, they eat
7:5. And the Pharisees and scribes asked him: Why do not thy disciples
7:6. But he answering, said to them: Well did Isaias prophesy of you
7:7. And in vain do they worship me, teaching doctrines and precepts of
Doctrines and precepts of men... See the annotations, Matt. 15. 9, 11.
7:8. For leaving the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men,
7:9. And he said to them: Well do you make void the commandment of God,
7:10. For Moses said: Honour thy father and thy mother. And He that
7:11. But you say: If a man shall say to his father or mother, Corban
7:12. And further you suffer him not to do any thing for his father or
7:13. Making void the word of God by your own tradition, which you have
7:14. And calling again the multitude unto him, he said to them: Hear ye
7:15. There is nothing from without a man that entering into him can
7:16. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
7:17. And when he was come into the house from the multitude, his
7:18. And he saith to them: So are you also without knowledge?
7:19. Because it entereth not into his heart but goeth into his belly
7:20. But he said that the things which come out from a man, they defile
7:21. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts,
7:22. Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil
7:23. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.
7:24. And rising from thence he went into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon:
7:25. For a woman as soon as she heard of him, whose daughter had an
7:26. For the woman was a Gentile, a Syrophenician born. And she
7:27. Who said to her: suffer first the children to be filled: for it is
7:28. But she answered and said to him: Yea, Lord; for the whelps also
7:29. And he said to her: For this saying, go thy way. The devil is gone
7:30. And when she was come into her house, she found the girl lying
7:31. And again going out of the coasts of Tyre, he came by Sidon to the
7:32. And they bring to him one deaf and dumb: and they besought him
7:33. And taking him from the multitude apart, he put his fingers into
7:34. And looking up to heaven, he groaned and said to him: Ephpheta,
7:35. And immediately his ears were opened and the string of his tongue
7:36. And he charged them that they should tell no man. But the more he
7:37. And so much the more did they wonder, saying: He hath done all
Mark Chapter 8
Christ feeds four thousand. He gives sight to a blind man. He foretells
8:1. In those days again, when there was great multitude and they had
8:2. I have compassion on the multitude, for behold they have now been
8:3. And if I shall send them away fasting to their home, they will
8:4. And his disciples answered him: From whence can any one fill them
8:5. And he asked them: How many loaves have ye? Who said: Seven.
8:6. And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground. And taking
8:7. And they had a few little fishes: and he blessed them and commanded
8:8. And they did eat and were filled: and they took up that which was
8:9. And they that had eaten were about four thousand. And he sent them
8:10. And immediately going up into a ship with his disciples, he came
8:11. And the Pharisees came forth and began to question with him,
8:12. And sighing deeply in spirit, he saith: Why doth this generation
8:13. And leaving them, he went up again into the ship and passed to the
8:14. And they forgot to take bread: and they had but one loaf with them
8:15. And he charged them saying: Take heed and beware of the leaven of
8:16. And they reasoned among themselves, saying: Because we have no
8:17. Which Jesus knowing, saith to them: Why do you reason, because you
8:18. Having eyes, see you not? And having ears, hear you not? Neither
8:19. When I broke the five loves among five thousand, how many baskets
8:20. When also the seven loaves among four thousand, how many baskets
8:21. And he said to them: How do you not yet understand?
8:22. And they came to Bethsaida: and they bring to him a blind man. And
8:23. And taking the blind man by the hand, he led him out of the town.
8:24. And looking up, he said: I see men, as it were trees, walking.
8:25. After that again he laid his hands upon his eyes: and he began to
8:26. And he sent him into his house, saying: Go into thy house, and if
8:27. And Jesus went out, and his disciples into the towns of Caesarea
8:28. Who answered him, saying: John the Baptist; but some Elias, and
8:29. Then he saith to them: But whom do you say that I am? Peter
8:30. And he strictly charged them that they should not tell any man of
8:31. And he began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many
8:32. And he spoke the word openly. And Peter taking him began to rebuke
8:33. Who turning about and seeing his disciples, threatened Peter,
8:34. And calling the multitude together with his disciples, he said to
8:35. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever
8:36. For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and
8:37. Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul:
8:38. For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words, in this
8:39. And he said to them: Amen f say to you that there are some of them
Mark Chapter 9
Christ is transfigured. He casts out the dumb spirit. He teaches
9:1. And after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John,
9:2. And his garments became shining and exceeding white as snow, so as
9:3. And there appeared to them Elias with Moses: and they were talking
9:4. And Peter answering, said to Jesus: Rabbi, it is good for us to be
9:5. For he knew not what he said: for they were struck with fear.
9:6. And there was a cloud overshadowing them. And a voice came out of
9:7. And immediately looking about, they saw no man any more, but Jesus
9:8. And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them not to
9:9. And they kept the word to themselves; questioning together what
9:10. And they asked him, saying: Why then do the Pharisees and scribes
9:11. Who answering, said to then: Elias, when he shall come first,
9:12. But I say to you that Elias also is come (and they have done to
9:13. And coming to his disciples he saw a great multitude about them
9:14. And presently all the people, seeing Jesus, were astonished and
9:15. And he asked them: What do you question about among you?
9:16. And one of the multitude, answering, said: Master, I have brought
9:17. Who, wheresoever he taketh him, dasheth him: and he foameth and
9:18. Who answering them, said: O incredulous generation, how long shall
9:19. And they brought him. And when he had seen him, immediately the
9:20. And he asked his father: How long time is it since this hath
9:21. And oftentimes hath he cast him into the fire and into the waters
9:22. And Jesus saith to him: If thou canst believe, all things are
9:23. And immediately the father of the boy crying out, with tears said:
9:24. And when Jesus saw the multitude running together, he threatened
9:25. And crying out and greatly tearing him, he went our of him. And
9:26. But Jesus taking him by the hand, lifted him up. And he arose.
9:27. And when he was come into the house, his disciples secretly asked
9:28. And he said to them: This kind can go out by nothing, but by
9:29. And departing from thence, they passed through Galilee: and he
9:30. And he taught his disciples and said to them: The Son of man shall
9:31. But they understood not the word: and they were afraid to ask him.
9:32. And they came to Capharnaum. And when they were in the house, he
9:33. But they held their peace, for in the way they had disputed among
9:34. And sitting down, he called the twelve and saith to them: If any
9:35. And taking a child, he set him in the midst of them. Whom when he

9:37. John answered him, saying: Master, we saw one casting out devils
9:38. But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a
9:39. For he that is not against you is for you.
9:40. For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in my name,
9:41. And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that

9:43. Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
9:44. And if thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee
9:45. Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
9:46. And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out: it is better for

10:1. And rising up from thence, he cometh into the coast of Judea
10:2. And the Pharisees coming to him asked him, tempting him: Is it
10:3. But he answering, saith to them: What did Moses command you?
10:4. Who said: Moses permitted to write a bill of divorce and to put
10:5. To whom Jesus answering, said: Because of the hardness of your
10:6. But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and
10:7. For this cause, a man shall leave his father and mother and shall
10:8. And they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not
10:9. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.
10:10. And in the house again his disciples asked him concerning the
10:11. And he saith to them: Whosoever shall put away his wife and marry
10:12. And if the wife shall put away her husband and be married to
10:13. And they brought to him young children, that he might touch them.
10:14. Whom when Jesus saw, he was much displeased and saith to them:
10:15. Amen I say to you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God
10:16. And embracing them and laying his hands upon them, he blessed
10:17. And when he was gone forth into the way, a certain man, running
10:18. And Jesus said to him: Why callest thou me good? None is good but
None is good... Of himself entirely and essentially, but God alone; men
10:19. Thou knowest the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not
10:20. But he answering, said to him: Master, all these things I have
10:21. And Jesus, looking on him, loved him and said to him: One thing
10:22. Who being struck sad at that saying, went away sorrowful: for he
10:23. And Jesus looking round about, saith to his disciples: How hardly
10:24. And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus again
10:25. It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than
10:26. Who wondered the more, saying among themselves: Who then can be
10:27. And Jesus looking on them, saith with men it is impossible; but
10:28. And Peter began to say unto him: Behold, we have left all things
10:29. Jesus answering said: Amen I say to you, there is no man who hath
10:30. Who shall not receive an hundred times as much, now in this time:
10:31. But many that are first shall be last: and the last, first.
10:32. And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem: and Jesus went
10:33. Saying: Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be
10:34. And they shall mock him and spit on him and scourge him and kill
10:35. And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come to him, saying:
10:36. But he said to them: What would you that I should do for you?
10:37. And they said: Grant to us that we may sit, one on thy right hand
10:38. And Jesus said to them: You know not what you ask. Can you drink
10:39. But they said to him: We can. And Jesus saith to them: You shall
10:40. But to sit on my right hand or on my left is not mine to give to
10:41. And the ten, hearing it, began to be much displeased at James and
10:42. But Jesus calling them, saith to them: You know that they who
10:43. But it is not so among you: but whosoever will be greater shall
10:44. And whosoever will be first among you shall be the servant of

10:47. Who when he had heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, began to cry
10:48. And many rebuked him, that he might hold his peace; but he cried
10:49. And Jesus, standing still, commanded him to be called. And they
10:50. Who casting off his garment leaped up and came to him.
10:51. And Jesus answering, said to him: What wilt thou that I should do

11:3. And if any man shall say to you: What are you doing? Say ye that
11:4. And going their way, they found the colt tied before the gate
11:5. And some of them that stood there said to them: What do you
11:6. Who said to them as Jesus had commanded them. And they let him go
11:7. And they brought the colt to Jesus. And they lay their garments on
11:8. And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down
11:9. And they that went before and they that followed cried, saying:
11:10. Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that cometh: Hosanna
11:11. And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple: and having viewed
11:12. And the next day when they came out from Bethania, he was hungry.
11:13. And when he had seen afar off a fig tree having leaves, he came,
11:14. And answering he said to it: May no man hereafter eat fruit of
11:15. And they came to Jerusalem. And when he was entered into the
11:16. And he suffered not that any man should carry a vessel through
11:17. And he taught, saying to them: Is it not written: My house shall

11:19. And when evening was come, he went forth out of the city.
11:20. And when they passed by in the morning they saw the fig tree
11:21. And Peter remembering, said to him: Rabbi, behold the fig tree
11:22. And Jesus answering, saith to them: Have the faith of God.
11:23. Amen I say to you that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be
11:24. Therefore I say unto you, all things, whatsoever you ask when ye
11:25. And when you shall stand to pray, forgive, if you have aught
11:26. But if you will not forgive, neither will your father that is in
11:27. And they come again to Jerusalem. And when he was walking in the
11:28. And they say to him: By what authority dost thou these things?
11:29. And Jesus answering, said to them: I will also ask you one word.
11:30. The baptism of John, was it from heaven or from men? Answer me.
11:31. But they thought with themselves, saying: If we say, From heaven;
11:32. If we say, From men, we fear the people. For all men counted John
11:33. And they answering, say to Jesus: We know not. And Jesus

The parable of the vineyard and husbandmen. Caesar's right to tribute.
12:1. And he began to speak to them in parables: A certain man planted a
12:2. And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant to receive
12:3. Who, having laid hands on him, beat and sent him away empty.
12:4. And again he sent to them another servant: and him they wounded in
12:5. And again he sent another, and him they killed: and many others,
12:6. Therefore, having yet one son, most dear to him, he also sent him
12:7. But the husbandmen said one to another: This is the heir. Come
12:8. And laying hold on him, they killed him and cast him out of the
12:9. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and
12:10. And have you not read this scripture, The stone which the
12:11. By the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes.
12:12. And they sought to lay hands on him: but they feared the people.
12:13. And they sent to him some of the Pharisees and of the Herodians:
12:14. Who coming, say to him: Master, we know that thou art a true
12:15. Who knowing their wiliness, saith to them: Why tempt you me?
12:16. And they brought it him. And he saith to them: Whose is this
12:17. And Jesus answering, said to them: Render therefore to Caesar the

12:19. Master, Moses wrote unto us that if any man's brother die and
12:20. Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife and died
12:21. And the second took her and died: and neither did he leave any
12:22. And the seven all took her in like manner and did not leave
12:23. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise again, whose

12:25. For when they shall rise again from the dead, they shall neither

12:27. He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You therefore
12:28. And there came one of the scribes that had heard them reasoning
12:29. And Jesus answered him: The first commandment of all is, Hear, O
12:30. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart and
12:31. And the second is like to it: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
12:32. And the scribe said to him: Well, Master, thou hast said in truth
12:33. And that he should be loved with the whole heart and with the

12:36. For David himself saith by the Holy Ghost: The Lord said to my
12:37. David therefore himself calleth him Lord. And whence is he then
12:38. And he said to them in his doctrine: Beware of the scribes, who

12:44. For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want
Mark Chapter 13
Christ foretells the destruction of the temple and the signs that shall
13:1. And as he was going out of the temple, one of his disciples said
13:2. And Jesus answering, said to him: Seest thou all these great
13:3. And as he sat on the mount of Olivet over against the temple,
13:4. Tell us, when shall these things be and what shall be the sign
13:5. And Jesus answering, began to say to them: Take heed lest any man
13:6. For many shall come in my name saying, I am he: and they shall
13:7. And when you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, fear ye not.
13:8. For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom:
13:9. But look to yourselves. For they shall deliver you Up to councils:
13:10. And unto all nations the gospel must first be preached.
13:11. And when they shall lead you and deliver you up, be not
13:12. And the brother shall betray his brother unto death, and the

13:14. And when you shall see the abomination of desolation, standing
13:15. And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house
13:16. And let him that shall be in the field not turn back to take up
13:17. And woe to them that are with child and that give suck in those
13:18. But pray ye that these things happen not in winter.
13:19. For in those days shall be such tribulations as were not from the
13:20. And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh should be
13:21. And then if any man shall say to you: Lo, here is Christ. Lo, he
13:22. For there will rise up false Christs and false prophets: and they
13:23. Take you heed therefore: behold, I have foretold you all things.
13:24. But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be
13:25. And the stars of heaven shall be falling down and the powers that
13:26. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds, with
13:27. And then shall he send his angels and shall gather together his

13:29. So you also when you shall see these things come to pass, know ye
13:30. Amen, I say to you that this generation shall not pass until all
13:31. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my word shall not pass
13:32. But of that day or hour no man knoweth, neither the angels in
Nor the Son... Not that the Son of God is absolutely ignorant of the day
13:33. Take ye heed, watch and pray. For ye know not when the time is.
13:34. Even as a man who, going into a far country, left his house and
13:35. Watch ye therefore (for you know not when the lord of the house

13:37. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch.

The first part of the history of the passion of Christ.
14:1. Now the feast of the pasch and of the Azymes was after two days:
Azymes... That is, the feast of the unleavened bread.
14:2. But they said: Not on the festival day, lest there should be a

14:4. Now there were some that had indignation within themselves and
14:5. For this ointment might have been sold for more than three hundred
14:6. But Jesus said: Let her alone. Why do You molest her? She hath
14:7. For the poor you have always with you: and whensoever you will,
14:8. She hath done what she could: she is come beforehand to anoint my
14:9. Amen, I say to you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in
14:10. And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests,
14:11. Who hearing it were glad: and they promised him they would give
14:12. Now on the first day of the unleavened bread, when they
14:13. And he sendeth two of his disciples and saith to them: Go ye into
14:14. And whithersoever he shall go in, say to the master of the house,
14:15. And he will shew you a large dining room furnished. And there
14:16. And his disciples went their way and came into the city. And
14:17. And when evening was come, he cometh with the twelve.
14:18. And when they were at table and eating, Jesus saith: Amen I say
14:19. But they began to be sorrowful and to say to him, one by one: Is
14:20. Who saith to them: One of the twelve, who dippeth with me his
14:21. And the Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe
14:22. And whilst they were eating, Jesus took bread; and blessing,
14:23. And having taken the chalice, giving thanks, he gave it to them.
14:24. And he said to them: This is my blood of the new testament, which
14:25. Amen I say to you that I will drink no more of the fruit of the
14:26. And when they had sung an hymn, they went forth to the mount of
14:27. And Jesus saith to them: You will all be scandalized in my regard
14:28. But after I shall be risen again, I will go before you into
14:29. But Peter saith to him: Although all shall be scandalized in
14:30. And Jesus saith to him: Amen I say to thee, to-day, even in this
Crow twice... The cocks crow at two different times of the night; viz.,
14:31. But he spoke the more vehemently: Although I should die together
14:32. And they came to a farm called Gethsemani. And he saith to his
14:33. And he taketh Peter and James and John with him: and he began to
14:34. And he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death. Stay
14:35. And when he was gone forward a little, he fell flat on the
14:36. And he saith: Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee:
14:37. And he cometh and findeth them sleeping. And he saith to Peter:
14:38. Watch ye: and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit
14:39. And going away again, he prayed, saying the same words.
14:40. And when he returned, he found them again asleep (for their eyes
14:41. And he cometh the third time and saith to them: Sleep ye now and
14:42. Rise up: let us go. Behold, he that will betray me is at hand.
14:43. And while he was yet speaking, cometh Judas Iscariot, one of the
14:44. And he that betrayed him had given them a sign, saying:
14:45. And when he was come, immediately going up to him he saith: Hail,
14:46. But they laid hands on him and held him.
14:47. And one of them that stood by, drawing a sword, struck a servant
14:48. And Jesus answering, said to them: Are you come out as to a
14:49. I was daily with you in the temple teaching: and you did not lay
14:50. Then his disciples, leaving him, all fled away.
14:51. And a certain young man followed him, having a linen cloth cast
14:52. But he, casting off the linen cloth, fled from them naked.
14:53. And they brought Jesus to the high priest. And all the priests
14:54. And Peter followed him afar off, even into the court of the high
14:55. And the chief priests and all the council sought for evidence
14:56. For many bore false witness against him: and their evidences were
14:57. And some rising up, bore false witness against him, saying:
14:58. We heard him say, I Will destroy this temple made with hands and
14:59. And their witness did not agree.
14:60. And the high priest rising up in the midst, asked Jesus, saying:
14:61. But he held his peace and answered nothing. Again the high priest
14:62. And Jesus said to him: I am. And you shall see the Son of man
14:63. Then the high priest rending his garments, saith: What need we
14:64. You have heard the blasphemy. What think you? Who all condemned
14:65. And some began to spit on him and to cover his face and to buffet
14:66. Now when Peter was in the court below, there cometh one of the
14:67. And when she had seen Peter warming himself looking on him, she
14:68. But he denied, saying: I neither know nor understand what thou
14:69. And again a maidservant seeing him, began to say to the standers
14:70. But he denied again. And after a, while they that stood by said
14:71. But he began o curse and to swear, saying: I know not this man of

The continuation of the history of the passion.
15:1. And straightway in the morning, the chief priests holding a

15:3. And the chief priests accused him in many things.
15:4. And Pilate again asked him, saying: Answerest thou nothing?
15:5. But Jesus still answered nothing: so that Pilate wondered.
15:6. Now on the festival day he was wont to release unto them one of
15:7. And there was one called Barabbas, who was put in prison with some
15:8. And when the multitude was come up, they began to desire that he
15:9. And Pilate answered them and said: Will you that I release to you
15:10. For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up out of
15:11. But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather
15:12. And Pilate again answering, saith to them: What will you then
15:13. But they again cried out: Crucify him.
15:14. And Pilate saith to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they
15:15. And so Pilate being willing to satisfy the people, released to
15:16. And the soldiers led him away into the court of the palace: and
15:17. And they clothed him with purple: and, platting a crown of
15:18. And they began to salute him: Hail, king of the Jews.
15:19. And they struck his head with a reed: and they did spit on him.
15:20. And after they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him
15:21. And they forced one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by coming out of
15:22. And they bring him into the place called Golgotha, which being
15:23. And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh. But he took
15:24. And crucifying him, they divided his garments, casting lots upon
15:25. And it was the third hour: and they crucified him.
The third hour... The ancient account divided the day into four parts,
15:26. And the inscription of his cause was written over: THE KING OF
15:27. And with him they crucify two thieves: the one on his right hand,
15:28. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith: And with the wicked
15:29. And they that passed by blasphemed him, wagging their heads and
15:30. Save thyself, coming down from the cross.
15:31. In like manner also the chief priests, mocking, said with the
15:32. Let Christ the king of Israel come down now from the cross, that
15:33. And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the
15:34. And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying:
15:35. And some of the standers by hearing, said: Behold he calleth
15:36. And one running and filling a sponge with vinegar and putting it
15:37. And Jesus, having cried out with a loud voice, gave up the ghost.
15:38. And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the
15:39. And the centurion who stood over against him, seeing that crying
15:40. And there were also women looking on afar off: among whom was

The sun being now risen... They set out before it was light, to go to
16:3. And they said one to another: Who shall roll us back the stone
16:4. And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. For it was very
16:5. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on
16:6. Who saith to them: Be not affrighted, you seek Jesus of Nazareth,
16:7. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into
16:8. But they going out, fled from the sepulchre: for a trembling and
16:9. But he rising early the first day of the week, appeared first to
16:10. She went and told them that had been with him, who were mourning
16:11. And they hearing that he was alive and had been seen by her, did
16:12. And after that he appeared in another shape to two of them

Thus, we usually do not keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition. We are now trying to release all our eBooks one year in advance of the official release dates, leaving time for better editing. Please be encouraged to tell us about any error or corrections, even years after the official publication date. Please note neither this listing nor its contents are final til midnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement. The official release date of all Project Gutenberg eBooks is at Midnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month. A preliminary version may often be posted for suggestion, comment and editing by those who wish to do so. Most people start at our Web sites at: http://gutenberg.net or http://promo.net/pg These Web sites include award-winning information about Project Gutenberg, including how to donate, how to help produce our new eBooks, and how to subscribe to our email newsletter (free!). Those of you who want to download any eBook before announcement can get to them as follows, and just download by date. This is also a good way to get them instantly upon announcement, as the indexes our cataloguers produce obviously take a while after an announcement goes out in the Project Gutenberg Newsletter. http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/etext03 or ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/docs/books/gutenberg/etext03 Or /etext02, 01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 92, 91 or 90 Just search by the first five letters of the filename you want, as it appears in our Newsletters. Information about Project Gutenberg (one page) We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work. The time it takes us, a rather conservative estimate, is fifty hours to get any eBook selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyright searched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc. Our projected audience is one hundred million readers. If the value per text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we produce $2 million dollars per hour in 2002 as we release over 100 new text files per month: 1240 more eBooks in 2001 for a total of 4000+ We are already on our way to trying for 2000 more eBooks in 2002 If they reach just 1-2% of the world's population then the total will reach over half a trillion eBooks given away by year's end. The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away 1 Trillion eBooks! This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million readers, which is only about 4% of the present number of computer users. Here is the briefest record of our progress (* means estimated): eBooks Year Month 1 1971 July 10 1991 January 100 1994 January 1000 1997 August 1500 1998 October 2000 1999 December 2500 2000 December 3000 2001 November 4000 2001 October/November 6000 2002 December* 9000 2003 November* 10000 2004 January* The Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation has been created to secure a future for Project Gutenberg into the next millennium.
