Mark 12

In a parable of the vineyard let out to unthankful husbandmen, Christ foretelleth the reprobation of the Jews, and the calling of the Gentiles.

Mark 12:1 And he began to be speaking unto them, in parables,—A man planted, a vineyard, and put round it a wall, and digged a wine-vat, and built a tower,—and let it out to husbandmen; and left home. Mark 12:2 And he sent forth, unto the husbandmen, in the season, a servant, that, from the husbandmen, he might receive of the fruits of the vineyard; Mark 12:3 and, taking him, they beat him, and sent him away, empty. Mark 12:4 And, again, sent he forth unto them, another servant; and, him, they smote on the head, and dishonoured. Mark 12:5 And another sent he forth; and, him, they slew. And many others; some, indeed beating, and, others, slaying. Mark 12:6 Yet one, had he, a son beloved: he sent him forth last unto them, saying—They will pay deference unto my son! Mark 12:7 But, those husbandmen, unto themselves, said—This, is the heir: Come! let us slay him, and, ours, shall be, the inheritance. Mark 12:8 And, taking, they slew him, and cast him forth outside the vineyard. Mark 12:9 What will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come, and destroy the husbandmen, and let the vineyard unto others. Mark 12:10 Have ye not, this scripture, read—A stone which the builders rejected, the same, hath become head of the corner! Mark 12:11 From the Lord, hath this come to pass, and is marvelous in our eyes? Mark 12:12 And they were seeking, to secure, him,—and were in fear of the multitude; for they perceived that, against them, the parable he had spoken. And, leaving him, they departed.

He avoideth the snare of the Pharisees and Herodians about paying tribute to Caesar:

Mark 12:13 And they send forth unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might, catch, him, in discourse. Mark 12:14 And, coming, they say unto him—Teacher! we know that, true, thou art, and it concerneth thee not about anyone,—for thou lookest not unto the face of men; but, in truth, the way of God, dost teach:—Is it allowable to give tax unto Caesar, or not? Should we give, or should we not give? Mark 12:15 But, he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them—Why are ye, tempting, me? Bring me a denary, that I may see it. Mark 12:16 And, they, brought one. And he saith unto them—Whose, is this image, and the inscription? And, they, said unto him—Caesar's. Mark 12:17 And, Jesus, said—the things of Caesar, render, unto Caesar, and, the things of God, unto God. And they were marveling at him.

convinceth the error of the Sadducees, who denied the resurrection:

Mark 12:18 And there come Sadducees unto him,—who, indeed say—Resurrection, there is none! and they were questioning him, saying— Mark 12:19 Teacher! Moses, wrote for us, that—If one's brother die, and leave behind a wife, and leave no child, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Mark 12:20 Seven brethren, there were: and, the first, took a wife, and, dying, left no seed,— Mark 12:21 And, the second, took her, and died, not leaving behind seed,—and, the third, likewise,— Mark 12:22 And, the seven, left no seed; last of all, the woman also, died:— Mark 12:23 In the resurrection,—of, which, of them shall she be, wife? For, the seven, had her to wife. Mark 12:24 Jesus said unto them—Are ye not, for this cause, deceiving yourselves, knowing neither the Scriptures, nor the power of God? Mark 12:25 For, when, from among the dead, they rise, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like messengers in the heavens. Mark 12:26 But, as touching the dead, that they, do rise,—Have ye not read in the book of Moses, at the Bush, how God spake unto him, saying—I [am] the God of Abraham, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob:— Mark 12:27 He is not a God of, dead, men, but of, living. Greatly, are ye deceiving yourselves.

resolveth the scribe, who questioned of the first commandment:

Mark 12:28 And one of the Scribes, coming near, hearing them discussing, seeing that, well, he had answered them, began to question him—Which is the chief commandment of all? Mark 12:29 Jesus answered—The chief is: Hear! O Israel,—The Lord our God, is, one Lord; Mark 12:30 Therefore shalt thou love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,—and with all thy mind; and with all thy strength. Mark 12:31 The second, is, this—Thou shalt love, thy neighbour, as thyself. Greater than these, other commandment, is there none. Mark 12:32 The Scribe said unto him—Well, Teacher! in truth, hast thou said—He is, One, and there is none other, than he; Mark 12:33 And, to love him, with all the heart, and with all the understanding,—and with all the might; and to love one's neighbour as one's self, is, abundantly more, than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. Mark 12:34 And, Jesus, seeing him, that, with intelligence he answered, said unto him—Not far, [art thou] from the kingdom of God! And, no one, any longer, was daring to, question, him.

refuseth the opinion that the scribes held of Christ:

Mark 12:35 And Jesus, answering, was saying, as he taught in the temple—How say the Scribes that, the Christ, is, Son of David? Mark 12:36 David himself, hath said, by the Holy Spirit,—The Lord, hath said unto, my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I put thy foes beneath thy feet. Mark 12:37 David himself, calleth him, Lord: whence, then, is he, his own son? And, the great multitude, was hearing him gladly.

bidding the people to beware of their ambition and hypocrisy:

Mark 12:38 And, in his teaching, he was saying—Beware of the Scribes, who desire, in robes, to be walking about, and salutations in the markets, Mark 12:39 And first seats in the synagogues, and first couches in the chief meals,— Mark 12:40 Who devour widows' houses, and, for a pretence, are long in prayer: these, shall receive a more surpassing judgment.

and commendeth the poor widow for her two mites, above all.

Mark 12:41 And, taking his seat over against the treasury, he was observing how, the multitude, was casting in copper into the treasury, and, man rich, were casting in, much. Mark 12:42 And there came, one destitute, widow, and cast in two mites, which are, a farthing. Mark 12:43 And, calling near his disciples, he said to them—Verily, I say unto you, this destitute widow, more than they all, hath cast in, of those casting into the treasury; Mark 12:44 For, they all, out of their surplus, cast in, but, she, out of her deficiency, all, as much as she had, cast in,—the whole of her living.
