Christ diputeth with the Pharisees touching divorcement:
Mark 10:2 And the pharisees came, and asked hym: Is it lawfull for a man to put away his wyfe? temptyng hym. Mark 10:3 And he aunswered, and sayde vnto them: What did Moyses commaunde you to do? Mark 10:4 And they sayde: Moyses suffred to write a booke of diuorcement, and to put her away. Mark 10:5 And Iesus aunswered, and sayde vnto the: For the hardnesse of your heart, he wrote this precept vnto you. Mark 10:6 But from the begynnyng of the creation, God made them male & female. Mark 10:7 [And sayde] for this cause shall a man leaue his father and mother, and byde by his wyfe: Mark 10:8 And they twayne shalbe one fleshe. So then are they no more twayne, but one fleshe. Mark 10:9 Therfore, what God hath coupled together, let not man seperate. Mark 10:10 And in the house, his disciples asked hym agayne, of the same matter. Mark 10:11 And he sayth vnto them: Whosoeuer putteth away his wyfe, & maryeth another, committeth adulterie agaynst her. Mark 10:12 And yf a woman put away her husbande, and be maryed to another, she committeth adulterie.
blesseth the children that are brought unto him:
Mark 10:13 And they brought young chyldren to hym, that he shoulde touche them: And his disciples rebuked those that brought them. Mark 10:14 But when Iesus sawe it, he was sore displeased, and sayde vnto them: Suffer the young children to come vnto me, forbyd them not: For of such, is the kyngdome of God. Mark 10:15 Ueryly I say vnto you, whosoeuer doth not receaue ye kingdome of God as a young childe, he shall not enter therin. Mark 10:16 And when he had taken them vp in his armes, he put his handes vpon the, and blessed them.

Mark 10:17 And when he was gone foorth into the way, there came one runnyng, and kneeled to hym, and asked hym: good Maister, what shall I do, that I may inherite eternall lyfe? Mark 10:18 Iesus sayde vnto hym: Why callest thou me good? There is no man good but one, which is God. Mark 10:19 Thou knowest the commaundementes: Thou shalt not commit adulterie, Thou shalt not kyll, Thou shalt not steale, Thou shalt not beare false witnesse, Thou shalt defraude no man, Honour thy father and mother. Mark 10:20 He aunswered, and sayde vnto hym: Maister, all these haue I obserued from my youth. Mark 10:21 Iesus behelde hym, and loued hym, and sayde vnto hym, one thyng thou lackest: Go thy way, sell whatsoeuer thou hast, and geue to the poore, & thou shalt haue treasure in heauen, and come folowe me, and take vp the crosse. Mark 10:22 But he was discomforted because of that saying, and went away mournyng: for he had great possessions.

Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonyed at his wordes. But Iesus aunswereth agayne, and sayth vnto them: Children, howe harde is it for the that trust in ryches, to enter into ye kyngdome of God. Mark 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go thorowe the eye of a needle, then for the riche to enter into the kyngdome of God. Mark 10:26 And they were astonyed out of measure, saying betwene them selues: who then can be saued? Mark 10:27 Iesus loked vpon them, & sayde: with men it is vnpossible, but not with God: for with God all thynges are possible.
promiseth rewards to them that forsake any thing for the Gospel:
Mark 10:28 And Peter began to say vnto him: Lo, we haue forsaken all, & haue folowed thee. Mark 10:29 Iesus aunswered, & sayde: Ueryly I say vnto you, there is no man that hath forsaken house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wyfe, or chyldren, or landes, for my sake and the Gospels, Mark 10:30 But he shall receaue an hundreth folde nowe at this present, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and chyldren, and landes, with persecutions, and in the worlde to come, eternall lyfe. Mark 10:31 But many that are first, shalbe last: and the last, first.
foretelleth his death and resurrection:
Mark 10:32 And they were in the way, goyng vp to Hierusalem: And Iesus went before them, and they were amazed, and folowed, and were afrayde. And Iesus toke the twelue agayne, and beganne to tell them what thynges shoulde happen vnto hym. Mark 10:33 Beholde, we go vp to Hierusalem, and the sonne of man shalbe delyuered vnto the hye priestes, & vnto the scribes and they shall condenme hym to death, and shall delyuer hym to the Gentiles. Mark 10:34 And they shall mocke hym, & scourge hym, spit vpon hym, and kyll hym: And the thirde day he shall ryse agayne.
biddeth the two ambitious suitors to think rather of suffering with him:
Mark 10:35 And Iames and Iohn, the sonnes of Zebedee, came vnto hym, saying: Maister, we would that thou shouldest do for vs, whatsoeuer we desyre. Mark 10:36 He sayde vnto them: What woulde ye, that I shoulde do for you? Mark 10:37 They sayde vnto hym: graunt vnto vs, that we may sit, one on thy ryght hande, and the other on thy left hande, in thy glory. Mark 10:38 But Iesus sayde vnto them, Ye wote not what ye aske: Can ye drynke of the cuppe that I drynke of? and be baptized with the baptisme that I am baptized with? Mark 10:39 And they sayde vnto hym: that we can. Iesus sayde vnto them: ye shall in deede drynke of the cup that I drynke of, and with the baptisme that I am baptized withall, shall ye be baptized: Mark 10:40 But to syt on my ryght hande, and on my left hande, is not myne to geue, but vnto them, for whom it is prepared. Mark 10:41 And when the ten hearde it, they began to disdaine at Iames and Iohn. Mark 10:42 But Iesus, when he had called them to hym, sayde vnto them: ye knowe, that they which seeme to beare rule among the Gentiles, raigne as Lordes ouer them: And they that be great among them, exercise aucthoritie vpon them. Mark 10:43 Neuerthelesse, so shall it not be among you: but whosoeuer of you, wyll be great among you, shalbe your minister: Mark 10:44 And whosoeuer of you wyll be the chiefest, shalbe seruaunt of all. Mark 10:45 For the sonne of man also came not to be ministred vnto: but to minister, & to geue his lyfe, a raunsome for many.

Mark 10:49 And Iesus stoode styll, and commaunded hym to be called. And they called the blynde, saying vnto hym: Be of good comfort, ryse, he calleth the. Mark 10:50 And he threwe away his cloke, & rose, and came to Iesus. Mark 10:51 And Iesus aunswered, and sayde vnto hym: what wylt thou that I do vnto thee? The blynde sayde vnto hym: Maister, that I myght see. Mark 10:52 Iesus sayde vnto hym: Go thy way, thy fayth hath saued thee. And immediatly he receaued his sight, & folowed Iesus in the way.
