Mark 10

NCV 1 Then Jesus left that place and went into the area of Judea and across the Jordan River. Again, crowds came to him, and he taught them as he usually did. NIV 1 Jesus then left that place and went into the region of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them. NCV 2 Some Pharisees came to Jesus and tried to trick him. They asked, "Is it right for a man to divorce his wife?" NIV 2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" NCV 3 Jesus answered, "What did Moses command you to do?" NIV 3 "What did Moses command you?" he replied. NCV 4 They said, "Moses allowed a man to write out divorce papers and send her away." NIV 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." NCV 5 Jesus said, "Moses wrote that command for you because you were stubborn. NIV 5 "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. NCV 6 But when God made the world, 'he made them male and female.' NIV 6 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' NCV 7 'So a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, NIV 7 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, NCV 8 and the two will become one body.' So there are not two, but one. NIV 8 and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. NCV 9 God has joined the two together, so no one should separate them." NIV 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." NCV 10 Later, in the house, his followers asked Jesus again about the question of divorce. NIV 10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. NCV 11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman is guilty of adultery against her. NIV 11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. NCV 12 And the woman who divorces her husband and marries another man is also guilty of adultery." NIV 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." NCV 13 Some people brought their little children to Jesus so he could touch them, but his followers told them to stop. NIV 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. NCV 14 When Jesus saw this, he was upset and said to them, "Let the little children come to me. Don't stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to people who are like these children. NIV 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. NCV 15 I tell you the truth, you must accept the kingdom of God as if you were a little child, or you will never enter it." NIV 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." NCV 16 Then Jesus took the children in his arms, put his hands on them, and blessed them. NIV 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. NCV 17 As Jesus started to leave, a man ran to him and fell on his knees before Jesus. The man asked, "Good teacher, what must I do to have life forever?" NIV 17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. "Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" NCV 18 Jesus answered, "Why do you call me good? Only God is good. NIV 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone. NCV 19 You know the commands: 'You must not murder anyone. You must not be guilty of adultery. You must not steal. You must not tell lies about your neighbor. You must not cheat. Honor your father and mother.'" NIV 19 You know the commandments: 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.' " NCV 20 The man said, "Teacher, I have obeyed all these things since I was a boy." NIV 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy." NCV 21 Jesus, looking at the man, loved him and said, "There is one more thing you need to do. Go and sell everything you have, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me." NIV 21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." NCV 22 He was very sad to hear Jesus say this, and he left sorrowfully, because he was rich. NIV 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. NCV 23 Then Jesus looked at his followers and said, "How hard it will be for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!" NIV 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!" NCV 24 The followers were amazed at what Jesus said. But he said again, "My children, it is very hard to enter the kingdom of God! NIV 24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! NCV 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God." NIV 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." NCV 26 The followers were even more surprised and said to each other, "Then who can be saved?" NIV 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?" NCV 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "This is something people cannot do, but God can. God can do all things." NIV 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." NCV 28 Peter said to Jesus, "Look, we have left everything and followed you." NIV 28 Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!" NCV 29 Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, all those who have left houses, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, or farms for me and for the Good News NIV 29 "I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel NCV 30 will get more than they left. Here in this world they will have a hundred times more homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and fields. And with those things, they will also suffer for their belief. But in the age that is coming they will have life forever. NIV 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields--and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life. NCV 31 Many who have the highest place now will have the lowest place in the future. And many who have the lowest place now will have the highest place in the future." NIV 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first." NCV 32 As Jesus and the people with him were on the road to Jerusalem, he was leading the way. His followers were amazed, but others in the crowd who followed were afraid. Again Jesus took the twelve apostles aside and began to tell them what was about to happen in Jerusalem. NIV 32 They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him. NCV 33 He said, "Look, we are going to Jerusalem. The Son of Man will be turned over to the leading priests and the teachers of the law. They will say that he must die, and they will turn him over to the non-Jewish people, NIV 33 "We are going up to Jerusalem," he said, "and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, NCV 34 who will laugh at him and spit on him. They will beat him with whips and crucify him. But on the third day, he will rise to life again." NIV 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise." NCV 35 Then James and John, sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus and said, "Teacher, we want to ask you to do something for us." NIV 35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. "Teacher," they said, "we want you to do for us whatever we ask." NCV 36 Jesus asked, "What do you want me to do for you?" NIV 36 "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. NCV 37 They answered, "Let one of us sit at your right side and one of us sit at your left side in your glory in your kingdom." NIV 37 They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory." NCV 38 Jesus said, "You don't understand what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I must drink? And can you be baptized with the same kind of baptism that I must go through?" NIV 38 "You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said. "Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?" NCV 39 They answered, "Yes, we can." Jesus said to them, "You will drink the same cup that I will drink, and you will be baptized with the same baptism that I must go through. NIV 39 "We can," they answered. Jesus said to them, "You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with, NCV 40 But I cannot choose who will sit at my right or my left; those places belong to those for whom they have been prepared." NIV 40 but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared." NCV 41 When the other ten followers heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. NIV 41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. NCV 42 Jesus called them together and said, "The non-Jewish people have rulers. You know that those rulers love to show their power over the people, and their important leaders love to use all their authority. NIV 42 Jesus called them together and said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. NCV 43 But it should not be that way among you. Whoever wants to become great among you must serve the rest of you like a servant. NIV 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, NCV 44 Whoever wants to become the first among you must serve all of you like a slave. NIV 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. NCV 45 In the same way, the Son of Man did not come to be served. He came to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many people." NIV 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." NCV 46 Then they came to the town of Jericho. As Jesus was leaving there with his followers and a great many people, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus son of Timaeus was sitting by the road. NIV 46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging. NCV 47 When he heard that Jesus from Nazareth was walking by, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" NIV 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" NCV 48 Many people warned the blind man to be quiet, but he shouted even more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" NIV 48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" NCV 49 Jesus stopped and said, "Tell the man to come here." So they called the blind man, saying, "Cheer up! Get to your feet. Jesus is calling you." NIV 49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called to the blind man, "Cheer up! On your feet! He's calling you." NCV 50 The blind man jumped up, left his coat there, and went to Jesus. NIV 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. NCV 51 Jesus asked him, "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man answered, "Teacher, I want to see." NIV 51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see." NCV 52 Jesus said, "Go, you are healed because you believed." At once the man could see, and he followed Jesus on the road. NIV 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
