American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases,
2 And he sent them forth to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staff, nor wallet, nor bread, nor money; neither have two coats. 3 He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic.
4 And into whatsoever house ye enter, there abide, and thence depart. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
5 And as many as receive you not, when ye depart from that city, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony against them. 5 If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them."
6 And they departed, and went throughout the villages, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere. 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.
7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done: and he was much perplexed, because that it was said by some, that John was risen from the dead; 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed, because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead,
8 and by some, that Elijah had appeared; and by others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. 8 others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life.
9 And Herod said, John I beheaded: but who is this, about whom I hear such things? And he sought to see him. 9 But Herod said, "I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?" And he tried to see him.
10 And the apostles, when they were returned, declared unto him what things they had done. And he took them, and withdrew apart to a city called Bethsaida. 10 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida,
11 But the multitudes perceiving it followed him: and he welcomed them, and spake to them of the kingdom of God, and them that had need of healing he cured. 11 but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.
12 And the day began to wear away; and the twelve came, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages and country round about, and lodge, and get provisions: for we are here in a desert place. 12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here."
13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy food for all this people. 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we go and buy food for all this crowd."
14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said unto his disciples, Make them sit down in companies, about fifty each. 14 (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
15 And they did so, and made them all sit down. 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down.
16 And he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake; and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people.
17 And they ate, and were all filled: and there was taken up that which remained over to them of broken pieces, twelve baskets. 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
18 And it came to pass, as he was praying apart, the disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Who do the multitudes say that I am? 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?"
19 And they answering said, John the Baptist; but others [say], Elijah; and others, that one of the old prophets is risen again. 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life."
20 And he said unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God."
21 But he charged them, and commanded [them] to tell this to no man; 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone.
22 saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. 22 And he said, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life."
23 And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
24 For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.
25 For what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and lose or forfeit his own self? 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in his own glory, and [the glory] of the Father, and of the holy angels. 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
27 But I tell you of a truth, There are some of them that stand here, who shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. 27 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."
28 And it came to pass about eight days after these sayings, that he took with him Peter and John and James, and went up into the mountain to pray. 28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray.
29 And as he was praying, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment [became] white [and] dazzling. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.
30 And behold, there talked with him two men, who were Moses and Elijah; 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 31 appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
32 Now Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
33 And it came to pass, as they were parting from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah: not knowing what he said. 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.)
34 And while he said these things, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my Son, my chosen: hear ye him. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
36 And when the voice came, Jesus was found alone. And they held their peace, and told no man in those days any of the things which they had seen. 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves, and told no one at that time what they had seen.
37 And it came to pass, on the next day, when they were come down from the mountain, a great multitude met him. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And behold, a man from the multitude cried, saying, Teacher, I beseech thee to look upon my son; for he is mine only child: 38 A man in the crowd called out, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child.
39 and behold, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth, and it hardly departeth from him, bruising him sorely. 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him.
40 And I besought thy disciples to cast it out; and they could not. 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not."
41 And Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and bear with you? bring hither thy son. 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you and put up with you? Bring your son here."
42 And as he was yet a coming, the demon dashed him down, and tare [him] grievously. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.
43 And they were all astonished at the majesty of God. But while all were marvelling at all the things which he did, he said unto his disciples, 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples,
44 Let these words sink into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered up into the hands of men. 44 "Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men."
45 But they understood not this saying, and it was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask him about this saying. 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
46 And there arose a reasoning among them, which of them was the greatest. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 But when Jesus saw the reasoning of their heart, he took a little child, and set him by his side, 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
48 and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this little child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same is great. 48 Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest."
49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. 49 "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us."
50 But Jesus said unto him, Forbid [him] not: for he that is not against you is for you. 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
51 And it came to pass, when the days were well-nigh come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.
52 and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him;
53 And they did not receive him, because his face was [as though he were] going to Jerusalem. 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
54 And when his disciples James and John saw [this], they said, Lord, wilt thou that we bid fire to come down from heaven, and consume them? 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them ?"
55 But he turned, and rebuked them. 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them,
56 And they went to another village. 56 and they went to another village.
57 And as they went on the way, a certain man said unto him, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."
58 And Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 58 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 59 He said to another man, "Follow me." But the man replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father."
60 But he said unto him, Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but go thou and publish abroad the kingdom of God. 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
61 And another also said, I will follow thee, Lord; but first suffer me to bid farewell to them that are at my house. 61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family."
62 But Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. 62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
