Mark 10:1 And he rose from thence, & commeth into the coasts of Iudea by the farther side of Iordan: and the people resort vnto him againe, and as he was wont, he taught them againe.
Christ diputeth with the Pharisees touching divorcement:
Mark 10:2 And the Pharises came to him, and asked him, Is it lawfull for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. Mark 10:3 And he answered, and saide vnto them, What did Moses command you? Mark 10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of diuorcement, and to put her away. Mark 10:5 And Iesus answered, and said vnto them, For the hardnesse of your heart, he wrote you this precept. Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male, and female. Mark 10:7 For this cause shall a man leaue his father and mother, and cleaue to his wife, Mark 10:8 And they twaine shalbe one flesh: so then they are no more twaine, but one flesh. Mark 10:9 What therefore God hath ioyned together, let not man put asunder. Mark 10:10 And in the house his disciples asked him againe of the same matter. Mark 10:11 And he saith vnto them, Whosoeuer shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. Mark 10:12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and bee married to another, she committeth adulterie.
blesseth the children that are brought unto him:
Mark 10:13 And they brought yong children to him, that he should touch them, and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. Mark 10:14 But when Iesus saw it, hee was much displeased, and said vnto them, Suffer the little children to come vnto mee, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdome of God. Mark 10:15 Uerily I say vnto you, Whosoeuer shall not receiue the kingdome of God as a little childe, he shall not enter therein. Mark 10:16 And hee tooke them vp in his armes, put his handes vpon them, and blessed them.
resolveth a rich man how he may inherit life everlasting:
Mark 10:17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good master, what shall I doe that I may inherit eternall life? Mark 10:18 And Iesus said vnto him, Why callest thou me good? There is no man good, but one, [that is] God. Mark 10:19 Thou knowest the Commandements, Doe not commit adulterie, Doe not kill, Doe not steale, Doe not beare false witnesse, Defraud not, Honour thy father, and mother. Mark 10:20 And hee answered, and saide vnto him, Master, all these haue I obserued from my youth. Mark 10:21 Then Iesus beholding him, loued him, and said vnto him, One thing thou lackest; Goe thy way, sell whatsoeuer thou hast, and giue to the poore, and thou shalt haue treasure in heauen, and come, take vp the crosse & folow me. Mark 10:22 And hee was sad at that saying, and went away grieued: for hee had great possessions.
telleth his disciples of the danger of riches:
Mark 10:23 And Iesus looked round about, and saith vnto his disciples, How hardly shall they that haue riches enter into the kingdome of God? Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Iesus answereth againe, and saith vnto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God? Mark 10:25 It is easier for a camel to goe thorow the eye of a needle, then for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Mark 10:26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselues, Who then can be saued? Mark 10:27 And Iesus looking vpon them, saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
promiseth rewards to them that forsake any thing for the Gospel:
Mark 10:28 Then Peter began to say vnto him, Loe, we haue left all, and haue followed thee. Mark 10:29 And Iesus answered, and said, Uerily I say vnto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the Gospels, Mark 10:30 But hee shall receiue an hundred fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternall life: Mark 10:31 But many [that] are first, shall be last: and the last, first.
foretelleth his death and resurrection:
Mark 10:32 And they were in the way going vp to Hierusalem: and Iesus went before them, and they were amazed, and as they followed, they were afraid: and he tooke againe the twelue, and began to tell them what things should happen vnto him, Mark 10:33 Saying, Behold, we go vp to Hierusalem, and the Sonne of man shall be deliuered vnto the chiefe Priests, and vnto the Scribes: and they shall condemne him to death, and shall deliuer him to the Gentiles. Mark 10:34 And they shall mocke him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit vpon him, and shall kill him, and the third day he shall rise againe.
biddeth the two ambitious suitors to think rather of suffering with him:
Mark 10:35 And Iames, and Iohn the sonnes of Zebedee come vnto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for vs whatsoeuer we shall desire. Mark 10:36 And hee saide vnto them, What would ye that I should doe for you? Mark 10:37 They said vnto him, Grant vnto vs that wee may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. Mark 10:38 But Iesus said vnto them, Yee know not what ye aske: Can ye drinke of the cup that I drinke of? and be baptized with the baptisme that I am baptized with? Mark 10:39 And they said vnto him, Wee can. And Iesus said vnto them, Ye shall indeed drinke of the cup that I drinke of: and with the baptisme that I am baptized withall, shall ye be baptized: Mark 10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand, is not mine to giue, but it shall be giuen to them for whom it is prepared. Mark 10:41 And when the ten heard it, they beganne to bee much displeased with Iames and Iohn. Mark 10:42 But Iesus called them to him, and saith vnto them, Yee know that they which are accompted to rule ouer the Gentiles, exercise Lordship ouer them: and their great ones exercise authoritie vpon them. Mark 10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoeuer will bee great among you, shall be your minister: Mark 10:44 And whosoeuer of you will bee the chiefest, shalbe seruant of all. Mark 10:45 For euen the Sonne of man came not to bee ministred vnto, but to minister, and to giue his life a ransome for many.
and restoreth to Bartimaeus his sight.
Mark 10:46 And they came to Iericho: and as he went out of Iericho with his disciples, and a great number of people; blinde Bartimeus, the son of Timeus, sate by the high wayes side, begging. Mark 10:47 And when he heard that it was Iesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Iesus thou Sonne of Dauid, haue mercie on me. Mark 10:48 And many charged him, that he should hold his peace: But he cried the more a great deale, Thou Sonne of Dauid, haue mercy on me. Mark 10:49 And Iesus stood still, and commanded him to bee called: and they call the blinde man, saying vnto him, Be of good comfort, rise, he calleth thee. Mark 10:50 And hee casting away his garment, rose, and came to Iesus. Mark 10:51 And Iesus answered, and said vnto him, What wilt thou that I should doe vnto thee? The blinde man said vnto him, Lord, that I might receiue my sight. Mark 10:52 And Iesus saide vnto him, Goe thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole: And immediatly hee receiued his sight, & followed Iesus in the way.
