Mark 10

WNT 1 Soon on His feet once more, He enters the district of Judaea and crosses the Jordan: again the people flock to Him, and ere long, as was usual with Him, He was teaching them once more. 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. WNT 2 Presently a party of Pharisees come to Him with the question--seeking to entrap Him, "May a man divorce his wife?" NIV 2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" WNT 3 "What rule did Moses lay down for you?" He answered. NIV 3 "What did Moses command you?" he replied. WNT 4 "Moses," they said, "permitted a man to draw up a written notice of divorce, and to send his wife away." NIV 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." WNT 5 "It was in consideration of your stubborn hearts," said Jesus, "that Moses enacted this law for you; NIV 5 "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. WNT 6 but from the beginning of the creation the rule was, `Male and female did God make them. NIV 6 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' WNT 7 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to his wife, NIV 7 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, WNT 8 and the two shall be one'; so that they are two no longer, but `one.' NIV 8 and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. WNT 9 What, therefore, God has joined together let not man separate." NIV 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." WNT 10 Indoors the disciples began questioning Jesus again on the same subject. NIV 10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. WNT 11 He replied, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman, commits adultery against the first wife; NIV 11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. WNT 12 and if a woman puts away her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." NIV 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." WNT 13 One day people were bringing young children to Jesus for Him to touch them, but the disciples interfered. NIV 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. WNT 14 Jesus, however, on seeing this, was moved to indignation, and said to them, "Let the little children come to me: do not hinder them; for to those who are childlike the Kingdom of God belongs. 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. WNT 15 In solemn truth I tell you that no one who does not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will by any possibility 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." WNT 16 Then He took them in His arms and blessed them lovingly, one by one, laying His hands upon them. NIV 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. WNT 17 As He went out to resume His journey, there came a man running up to Him, who knelt at His feet and asked, "Good Rabbi, what am I to do in order to inherit the Life of the Ages?" 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?" WNT 18 "Why do you call me good?" asked Jesus in reply; "there is no one truly good except One--that is, God. NIV 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone. WNT 19 You know the Commandments--`Do not murder;' `Do not commit adultery;' `Do not steal;' `Do not lie in giving evidence;' `Do not defraud;' `Honour thy father and thy 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.' " WNT 20 "Rabbi," he replied, "all these Commandments I have carefully obeyed from my youth." NIV 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy." WNT 21 Then Jesus looked at him and loved him, and said, "One thing is lacking in you: go, sell all you possess and give the proceeds to the poor, and you shall have riches in Heaven; and come and be a follower of mine." 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." WNT 22 At these words his brow darkened, and he went away sad; for he was possessed of great wealth. NIV 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. WNT 23 Then looking round on His disciples Jesus said, "With how hard a struggle will the possessors of riches 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!" WNT 24 The disciples were amazed at His words. Jesus, however, said again, "Children, how hard a struggle is it for those who trust in riches 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! WNT 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." 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." WNT 26 They were astonished beyond measure, and said to one another, "Who then *can* be saved?" NIV 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?" WNT 27 Jesus looking on them said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for everything is possible with God." NIV 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." WNT 28 "Remember," said Peter to Him, "that we forsook everything and have become your followers." NIV 28 Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!" WNT 29 "In solemn truth I tell you," replied Jesus, "that there is no one who has forsaken house or brothers or sisters, or mother or father, or children or lands, for my sake and for the sake of 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 WNT 30 but will receive a hundred times as much now in this present life--houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, lands--and persecution with them--and in the coming age the Life of the Ages. 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. WNT 31 But many who are now first will be last, and the last, first." NIV 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first." WNT 32 They were still on the road going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; they were full of wonder, and some, though they followed, did so with fear. Then, once more calling to Him the Twelve, He began to tell them what was about to happen to Him. 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. WNT 33 "See," He said, "we are going up to Jerusalem, where the Son of Man will be betrayed to the High Priests and the Scribes. They will condemn Him to death, and will hand Him over to the Gentiles; 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, WNT 34 they will insult Him in cruel sport, spit on Him, scourge Him, and put Him to death; 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." WNT 35 Then James and John, the sons of Zabdi, came up to Him and said, "Rabbi, we wish you would grant us whatever request we make of you." 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." WNT 36 "What would you have me do for you?" He asked. NIV 36 "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. WNT 37 "Allow us," they replied, "to sit one at your right hand and the other at your left hand, in your glory." NIV 37 They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory." WNT 38 "You know not," said He, "what you are asking. Are you able to drink out of the cup from which I am to drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am to be baptized?" 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?" WNT 39 "We are able," they replied. "Out of the cup," said Jesus, "from which I am to drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I am to be baptized you shall be baptized; 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, WNT 40 but as to sitting at my right hand or at my left, that is not mine to give: it will be for those for whom it is reserved." 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." WNT 41 The other ten, hearing of it, were at first highly indignant with James and John. NIV 41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. WNT 42 Jesus, however, called them to Him and said to them, "You are aware how those who are deemed rulers among the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men make them feel 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. WNT 43 but it is not to be so among you. No, whoever desires to be great among you must be your servant; NIV 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, WNT 44 and whoever desires to be first among you must be the bondservant of all. NIV 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. WNT 45 For the Son of Man also did not come to be waited upon, but to wait on others, and to give His life as the redemption-price for a multitude of 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." WNT 46 They came to Jericho; and as He was leaving that town--Himself and His disciples and a great crowd--Bartimaeus (the son of Timaeus), a blind beggar, was sitting by the way-side. 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. WNT 47 Hearing that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, "Son of David, Jesus, have pity 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!" WNT 48 Many angrily told him to leave off shouting; but he only cried out all the louder, "Son of David, have pity 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!" WNT 49 Then Jesus stood still. "Call him," He said. So they called the blind man. "Cheer up," they said; "rise, he 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." WNT 50 The man flung away his outer garment, sprang to his feet, and came to Jesus. NIV 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. WNT 51 "What shall I do for you?" said Jesus. "Rabboni," replied the blind man, "let me recover my sight." NIV 51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see." WNT 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has cured you." Instantly he regained his sight, and followed Him along the road. NIV 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
