Mark 9:1 And he sayd vnto them: Uerely, I saye vnto you: Ther be some among them that stande here, which shall not taste of death, tyll they haue sene the kyngdome of God come with power.
Jesus is transfigured.
Mark 9:2 And after sixe dayes Iesus taketh Peter and Iames, and Iohn, and leedeth them vp into an hye mountayne out of the waye alone: and he was transfigured before them. Mark 9:3 And hys rayment dyd shyne, and became very whyte, euen as snowe: so whyt as no fuller can make vpon the earth. Mark 9:4 And ther appeared vnto them Elias with Moses. And they talked with Iesu. Mark 9:5 And Peter answered & sayth to Iesu: Master, here is good beynge for vs: let vs make also .iij. tabernacles, one for the, and one for Moses, and one for Helias. Mark 9:6 For he wyst not what he sayd: for they were afrayed. Mark 9:7 And there was a cloude that shadowed them. And a voyce came out of þe cloude, saying: Thys is my beloued sonne: heare hym. Mark 9:8 And sodenly whan they had loked rounde aboute, they sawe no man more then Iesus onely with them. Mark 9:9 And as they came downe from the hyll, he charged them, þt they shuld tell no man those thynges that they had sene, tyll the sonne of man were rysen from death agayne. Mark 9:10 And they kepte that saieng with them, and demaunded one of another, what the rysyng from death agayne shulde meane?
He instructeth his disciples concerning the coming of Elias:
Mark 9:11 And they asked hym, sayenge: why then saye the scribes, that Helias must first come? Mark 9:12 He answered and sayd: vnto them: Helias verely when he commeth fyrst, restoreth all thynges. And the sonne of man (as it is writen of him) shall suffre many thynges, & be sett at naught. Mark 9:13 But I saye vnto you, thut Helias is come, and they haue done vnto hym whatsoeuer they wolde, as it was wryten of hym.
casteth forth a dumb and deaf spirit:
Mark 9:14 And whan he came to hys disciples, he sawe moch people about them, & the scribes disputing wt them. Mark 9:15 And streight waye all the people (whan they behelde hym) were amased, and ran to hym, & saluted hym. Mark 9:16 And he asked the scribes: what dispute ye among them? Mark 9:17 And one of the company answered, & sayde: Master, I haue brought vnto þe my sonne, whych hath a dome sprete. Mark 9:18 And whensoeuer he taketh him, he teareth him, and he fometh, and gnassheth with hys teth, and pineth awaye. And I spake to thy disciples that they shuld caste hym out, and they coulde not. Mark 9:19 He answereth him, and sayth: O faithles nacion, how longe shall I be wt you? How longe shall I suffre you? Brynge hym vnto me. Mark 9:20 And they brought him vnto hym. And assone as the sprete sawe hym, he tare him. And he fell downe on the ground, walowing & foming. Mark 9:21 And he asketh his father: how longe is it ago: sens thys happened hym? And he sayde: of a chylde: Mark 9:22 & oft tymes it hath cast hym into the fyre, & into the water, to destroye hym. But yf thou canst do eny thing, haue mercy on vs and helpe vs. Mark 9:23 Iesus sayd vnto hym: yf thou couldest beleue all thynges are possyble to hym that beleueth. Mark 9:24 And streyght waye the father of the chyld cried with teares, saieng, Lord, I beleue, helpe thou myne vnbelefe. Mark 9:25 When Iesus sawe þt the people came runnyng together vnto him, he rebuked þe foule sprete, saying vnto hym: Thou domme & deeff sprete, I charge the come out of him, and entre nomore into him. Mark 9:26 And the sprete (whan he had cried, & rent hym sore) came out of hym, and he was as one that had bene dead, in so moch that many sayd: he is deed. Mark 9:27 But Iesus caught hys hand, and lyft him vp: and he rose. Mark 9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked hym secretly: why coulde not we cast hym oute? Mark 9:29 And he sayde vnto them: this kynde can come forth by nothing: but by prayer and fastynge.
foretelleth his death and resurrection:
Mark 9:30 And they departed thens, & toke theyr iorney thorow Galile, and he wold not, that eny man shuld knowe it. Mark 9:31 For he taught hys disciples, and sayd vnto them: the sonne of man shalbe deliuered into the handes of men, and they shall kyll hym: and after that he is kylled, he shall aryse agayne the thyrd daye. Mark 9:32 But they wist not what he sayde, and were afrayed to aske him.
exhorteth his disciples to humility:
Mark 9:33 And he came to Capernaum. And when he was come into þe house, he asked them: what was it þt ye disputed among yourselues by þe waye? Mark 9:34 And they helde their peace: for by the waye they had reasoned among them selues, who shuld be the chefest. Mark 9:35 And when he was set downe, he called the twelue to hym, and sayd vnto them: yf eny man desyre to be fyrst, the same shalbe last of all, and seruaunt to all. Mark 9:36 And he toke a chylde, and set hym in the myddes of them: & when he had taken hym in hys armes, he sayde vnto them: Mark 9:37 whosoeuer receaueth eny soche a childe in my name, receaueth me. And whosoeuer receaueth me, receaueth not me, but hym that sent me.
bidding them not to prohibit such as be not against them, nor to give offence to any of the faithful.
Mark 9:38 Iohn answered hym, sayinge: Master, we sawe one cast out deuyls in thy name, & he foloweth not vs: and we forbade hym, because he foloweth vs not. Mark 9:39 But Iesus sayde: forbyd him not. For ther is no man whych (yf he do a myracle in my name) can lyghtely speake euill of me. Mark 9:40 For he þt is not agaynst vs, is on oure parte. Mark 9:41 Whosoeuer shall in my name geue you a cuppe of water to drincke, because ye belonge to Chryste, verely I saye vnto you: he shall not loose hys reward. Mark 9:42 And whosoeuer shall offende one of these lytelons, that beleue in me, it were better for hym, yf a mylstone were hanged aboute his necke, and he were cast into the see. Mark 9:43 Wherfore yf thy hande hynder the, cut it of. It is beter for the, to entre into lyfe maymed, then (hauynge two handes) to go into hell, into fyre that neuer shalbe quenched, Mark 9:44 where theyr worme dyeth not, and the fyre goeth not out. Mark 9:45 And yf thy fote be a hynderaunce vnto þe, cut it of. It is better for þe to go halt into lyfe, then (hauynge two fete) to be cast into hell, into fyre that neuer shalbe quenched: Mark 9:46 where theyr worme dyeth not, and the fyre goeth not out. Mark 9:47 And yf thyne eye hinder the plucke it out. It is better for the to go into the kyngedome of God wyth one eye, then (hauynge two eyes) to be cast into hell fyre: Mark 9:48 where theyr worme dyeth not, and the fyre goeth not out. Mark 9:49 Euery man shalbe salted wyth fyre. And euery sacrifyce shalbe seasoned with salt. Mark 9:50 Salt is good. But yf the salt be vnsauery, what shall ye season ther wyth? haue salt in youre selues: and haue peace amonge youre selues, one wyth another.
