King James VersionMark8


1 In those days the mul­ti­tude be­ing very great, and hav­ing noth­ing to eat, Je­sus called his dis­ci­ples un­to him, and saith unto them, 2 I have com­pas­sion on the mul­ti­tude, be­cause they have now been with me three days, and have noth­ing to eat: 3 And if I send them away fast­ing to their own hous­es, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 4 And his dis­ci­ples an­swered him, From whence can a man sat­is­fy these men with bread here in the wilder­ness? 5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Sev­en. 6 And he com­mand­ed the peo­ple to sit down on the ground: and he took the sev­en loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his dis­ci­ples to set be­fore them; and they did set them be­fore the peo­ple. 7 And they had a few small fish­es: and he blessed, and com­mand­ed to set them also be­fore them. 8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the bro­ken meat that was left sev­en bas­kets. 9 And they that had eat­en were about four thou­sand: and he sent them away. 10 And straight­way he en­tered into a ship with his dis­ci­ples, and came into the parts of Dal­manutha. 11 And the Phar­isees came forth, and be­gan to ques­tion with him, seek­ing of him a sign from heav­en, tempt­ing him. 12 And he sighed deeply in his spir­it, and saith, Why doth this gen­er­a­tion seek af­ter a sign? ver­i­ly I say unto you, There shall no sign be giv­en unto this gen­er­a­tion. 13 And he left them, and en­ter­ing into the ship again de­part­ed to the oth­er side. 14 Now the disciples had for­got­ten to take bread, nei­ther had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. 15 And he charged them, say­ing, Take heed, be­ware of the leav­en of the Phar­isees, and of the leav­en of Herod. 16 And they rea­soned among them­selves, say­ing, It is be­cause we have no bread. 17 And when Je­sus knew it, he saith unto them, Why rea­son ye, be­cause ye have no bread? per­ceive ye not yet, nei­ther un­der­stand? have ye your heart yet hard­ened? 18 Hav­ing eyes, see ye not? and hav­ing ears, hear ye not? and do ye not re­mem­ber? 19 When I brake the five loaves among five thou­sand, how many bas­kets full of frag­ments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. 20 And when the sev­en among four thou­sand, how many bas­kets full of frag­ments took ye up? And they said, Sev­en. 21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not un­der­stand? 22 And he cometh to Beth­sai­da; and they bring a blind man unto him, and be­sought him to touch him. 23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. 24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walk­ing. 25 Af­ter that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was re­stored, and saw ev­ery man clear­ly. 26 And he sent him away to his house, say­ing, Nei­ther go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town. 27 And Je­sus went out, and his dis­ci­ples, into the towns of Cae­sarea Philip­pi: and by the way he asked his dis­ci­ples, say­ing unto them, Whom do men say that I am? 28 And they an­swered, John the Bap­tist: but some say, Elias; and oth­ers, One of the prophets. 29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Pe­ter an­swereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. 31 And he be­gan to teach them, that the Son of man must suf­fer many things, and be re­ject­ed of the el­ders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and af­ter three days rise again. 32 And he spake that say­ing open­ly. And Pe­ter took him, and be­gan to re­buke him. 33 But when he had turned about and looked on his dis­ci­ples, he re­buked Pe­ter, say­ing, Get thee be­hind me, Sa­tan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men. 34 And when he had called the peo­ple un­to him with his dis­ci­ples al­so, he said unto them, Whoso­ev­er will come af­ter me, let him deny him­self, and take up his cross, and fol­low me. 35 For whoso­ev­er will save his life shall lose it; but whoso­ev­er shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it prof­it a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in ex­change for his soul? 38 Whoso­ev­er there­fore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adul­ter­ous and sin­ful gen­er­a­tion; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glo­ry of his Fa­ther with the holy an­gels.
