King James VersionMark1


1 The be­gin­ning of the gospel of Je­sus Christ, the Son of God; 2 As it is writ­ten in the prophets, Be­hold, I send my mes­sen­ger be­fore thy face, which shall pre­pare thy way be­fore thee. 3 The voice of one cry­ing in the wilder­ness, Pre­pare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 John did bap­tize in the wilder­ness, and preach the bap­tism of re­pen­tance for the re­mis­sion of sins. 5 And there went out unto him all the land of Ju­daea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all bap­tized of him in the riv­er of Jor­dan, con­fess­ing their sins. 6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a gir­dle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat lo­custs and wild hon­ey; 7 And preached, say­ing, There cometh one might­i­er than I af­ter me, the latch­et of whose shoes I am not wor­thy to stoop down and un­loose. 8 I in­deed have bap­tized you with wa­ter: but he shall bap­tize you with the Holy Ghost. 9 And it came to pass in those days, that Je­sus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was bap­tized of John in Jor­dan. 10 And straight­way com­ing up out of the wa­ter, he saw the heav­ens opened, and the Spir­it like a dove de­scend­ing upon him: 11 And there came a voice from heav­en, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 12 And im­me­di­ate­ly the Spir­it driv­eth him into the wilder­ness. 13 And he was there in the wilder­ness forty days, tempt­ed of Sa­tan; and was with the wild beasts; and the an­gels min­is­tered unto him. 14 Now af­ter that John was put in prison, Je­sus came into Galilee, preach­ing the gospel of the king­dom of God, 15 And say­ing, The time is ful­filled, and the king­dom of God is at hand: re­pent ye, and be­lieve the gospel. 16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Si­mon and An­drew his broth­er cast­ing a net into the sea: for they were fish­ers. 17 And Je­sus said unto them, Come ye af­ter me, and I will make you to be­come fish­ers of men. 18 And straight­way they for­sook their nets, and fol­lowed him. 19 And when he had gone a lit­tle fur­ther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his broth­er, who also were in the ship mend­ing their nets. 20 And straight­way he called them: and they left their fa­ther Zebedee in the ship with the hired ser­vants, and went af­ter him. 21 And they went into Ca­per­naum; and straight­way on the sab­bath day he en­tered into the syn­a­gogue, and taught. 22 And they were as­ton­ished at his doc­trine: for he taught them as one that had au­thor­i­ty, and not as the scribes. 23 And there was in their syn­a­gogue a man with an un­clean spir­it; and he cried out, 24 Say­ing, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Je­sus of Nazareth? art thou come to de­stroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25 And Je­sus re­buked him, say­ing, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26 And when the un­clean spir­it had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, in­so­much that they ques­tioned among them­selves, say­ing, What thing is this? what new doc­trine is this? for with au­thor­i­ty com­man­deth he even the un­clean spir­its, and they do obey him. 28 And im­me­di­ate­ly his fame spread abroad through­out all the re­gion round about Galilee. 29 And forth­with, when they were come out of the syn­a­gogue, they en­tered into the house of Si­mon and An­drew, with James and John. 30 But Simon's wife's moth­er lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lift­ed her up; and im­me­di­ate­ly the fever left her, and she min­is­tered unto them. 32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were dis­eased, and them that were pos­sessed with dev­ils. 33 And all the city was gath­ered to­geth­er at the door. 34 And he healed many that were sick of divers dis­eases, and cast out many dev­ils; and suf­fered not the dev­ils to speak, be­cause they knew him. 35 And in the morn­ing, ris­ing up a great while be­fore day, he went out, and de­part­ed into a soli­tary place, and there prayed. 36 And Si­mon and they that were with him fol­lowed af­ter him. 37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. 38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there al­so: for there­fore came I forth. 39 And he preached in their syn­a­gogues through­out all Galilee, and cast out dev­ils. 40 And there came a lep­er to him, be­seech­ing him, and kneel­ing down to him, and say­ing unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 41 And Je­sus, moved with com­pas­sion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42 And as soon as he had spo­ken, im­me­di­ate­ly the lep­rosy de­part­ed from him, and he was cleansed. 43 And he strait­ly charged him, and forth­with sent him away; 44 And saith unto him, See thou say noth­ing to any man: but go thy way, shew thy­self to the priest, and of­fer for thy cleans­ing those things which Moses com­mand­ed, for a tes­ti­mo­ny unto them. 45 But he went out, and be­gan to pub­lish it much, and to blaze abroad the mat­ter, in­so­much that Je­sus could no more open­ly en­ter into the city, but was with­out in desert places: and they came to him from ev­ery quar­ter.
