Christ diputeth with the Pharisees touching divorcement:
Mark 10:2 And the Pharyses came, and asked hym. Is it lawfull for a man to put awaye hys wyfe: to proue hym. Mark 10:3 And he answered, and sayd vnto them: what dyd Moses byd you do: Mark 10:4 and they sayde, Moses suffered to wryte a testimonall of deuorsement, and to put her awaye. Mark 10:5 And Iesus answered and sayde vnto them: For the hardnes of youre herte he wrote thys precept vnto you. Mark 10:6 But at the fyrst creacyon. God made them man and woman. Mark 10:7 Therfore shall a man leaue hys father & mother, & byde by, hys wyfe, Mark 10:8 & they twayne shalbe one fleshe. So then are they now not twayne, but one fleshe. Mark 10:9 Therfore, what God hath coupled together let not man separate. Mark 10:10 And in the house hys discyples asked him againe of the same matter. Mark 10:11 And he sayeth vnto them. Whosoeuer putteth awaye hys wyfe, & maryeth another, breaketh wedlocke to her warde. Mark 10:12 And yf a woman forsake her husband, and be maryed to another, she commytteth aduoutrye.

Mark 10:13 And they brought chyldren to hym, that he shulde touch them. And hys discyples rebuked those that brought them. Mark 10:14 But when Iesus sawe it, he was dyspleased & sayd vnto them: Suffre the children to come vnto me, forbyd them not. For of soch is the kyngdome of God.

Mark 10:16 And whan he had taken them vp in hys armes, he put his handes vpon them, and blessed them.

Mark 10:17 And when he was gone forth into the waye, ther came one runnynge and kneled to hym, & asked hym: good master, what shal I do, that I maye enheret eternall lyfe? Mark 10:18 Iesus sayde vnto hym: why callest þu me good? There is no man good, but one, which is God. Mark 10:19 Thou knowest the commaundementes: breake not matrimony: kyll not: steale not, beare no false wytnes: defraude no man: honoure thy father and mother. Mark 10:20 He answered and sayd vnto hym: Master, all these, I haue obserued from my youth. Mark 10:21 Iesus behelde hym, and fauoured hym, and sayd vnto hym: one thynge thou lackest. Go thy waye Sell that thou hast, and geue to the poore, and þu shalt haue treasure in heauen, and come, folowe me and take vp my crosse vpon thy shulders.

Mark 10:24 And the discyples were astonnyed at hys wordes. But Iesus answereth againe, & sayeth vnto them: children, how harde is it for them, that trust in money, to entre into þe kingdome of God? Mark 10:25 It is easyer for a camell to go thorow þe eye of an nedle, then for the ryche to entre into þe kyngdome of God. Mark 10:26 And they were astonnyed out of measure, sayinge betwene them selues: who then can be saued? Mark 10:27 Iesus loked vpon them, and sayd. with men it is vnpossible, but not with God: for with God all thynges are possyble.
promiseth rewards to them that forsake any thing for the Gospel:
Mark 10:28 And Peter beganne to saye vnto hym: Lo: We haue forsaken all, & haue folowed the. Mark 10:29 Iesus answered, & sayde: Uerely I saye vnto you, ther is no man that hath forsaken house, or brethren, or systers, or father, or mother, or wyfe, or chyldren, or landes for my sake & the Gospelles, Mark 10:30 but he shall receaue an hundred foold nowe in this lyfe, houses and brethren, and systers, and mothers, and chyldren, and landes wyth persecucyons: & in þe worlde to come, eternall lyfe.

Mark 10:33 Beholde, we go vp to Ierusalem, & the sonne of man shalbe delyuered vnto the hye Prestes and vnto the Scribes: and they shall condemne hym to deeth, and shall delyuer hym to the gentyls, Mark 10:34 and they shall mocke hym, and scourge hym, spyt vpon him, and kyll hym.

Mark 10:35 And Iames and Iohn the sonnes of Zebede came vnto him, sayinge: Master: we wolde, that thou shuldest do for vs whatsoeuer we desyre. Mark 10:36 He sayde vnto them: what wolde ye that I shuld do for you? Mark 10:37 They sayde vnto hym: graunt vnto vs, that we maye sytte, one on thy ryght hande, and the other on thy lyfte hande, in thy glory. Mark 10:38 But Iesus sayd vnto them: Ye wote not what ye aske: Can ye dryncke of the cup, that I dryncke of? and be baptysed wyth the baptyme, that I am baptysed with? Mark 10:39 And they sayde vnto hym: that we can. Iesus sayde vnto them: ye shall in dede dryncke of the cup that I dryncke of: and wyth þe baptyme that I am baptysed wyth all, shall ye be baptysed in: Mark 10:40 but to syt on my ryght hande & on my lyfte hande, is not myne to geue, but it shall happen vnto them, for whom it is prepared. Mark 10:41 And when þe ten hearde it, they began to dysdayne at Iames and Iohn. Mark 10:42 But Iesus whan he had called them to hym, sayd vnto them: ye knowe, that they whych are sene to beare rule amonge the people, raygne as Lordes ouer them. Mark 10:43 And they that be greate amonge them, exercyse auctoryte vpon them. Neuertheles, so shall it not be amonge you: but whosoeuer of you wylbe greate amonge you, shalbe youre mynister. Mark 10:44 And whosoeuer wylbe chefe, shalbe seruaunt of all. Mark 10:45 For the sonne of man also came not to be mynystred vnto: but to mynister, and to geue hys lyfe for the redempcyon of many.
