Mark 12

NAS 1 And He began to speak to them in parables: "A man PLANTED A VINEYARD AND PUT A WALL AROUND IT, AND DUG A VAT UNDER THE WINE PRESS AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey. NIV 1 He then began to speak to them in parables: "A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. NAS 2 "At the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order to receive some of the produce of the vineyard from the vine-growers. NIV 2 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. NAS 3 "They took him, and beat him and sent him away empty-handed. NIV 3 But they seized him, beat him and sent him away empty-handed. NAS 4 "Again he sent them another slave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. NIV 4 Then he sent another servant to them; they struck this man on the head and treated him shamefully. NAS 5 "And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some and killing others . NIV 5 He sent still another, and that one they killed. He sent many others; some of them they beat, others they killed. NAS 6 "He had one more to send, a beloved son; he sent him last of all to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' NIV 6 "He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, 'They will respect my son.' NAS 7 "But those vine-growers said to one another, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours!' NIV 7 "But the tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' NAS 8 "They took him, and killed him and threw him out of the vineyard. NIV 8 So they took him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. NAS 9 "What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give the vineyard to others. NIV 9 "What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others. NAS 10 "Have you not even read this Scripture: 'THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; NIV 10 Haven't you read this scripture: " 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; NAS 11 THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD , AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES '?" NIV 11 the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes' ?" NAS 12 And they were seeking to seize Him, and yet they feared the people, for they understood that He spoke the parable against them. And so they left Him and went away. NIV 12 Then they looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away. NAS 13 Then they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Him in order to trap Him in a statement. NIV 13 Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words. NAS 14 They came and said to Him, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not? NIV 14 They came to him and said, "Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not? NAS 15 "Shall we pay or shall we not pay?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a denarius to look at." NIV 15 Should we pay or shouldn't we?" But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. "Why are you trying to trap me?" he asked. "Bring me a denarius and let me look at it." NAS 16 They brought one. And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's." NIV 16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?" "Caesar's," they replied. NAS 17 And Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were amazed at Him. NIV 17 Then Jesus said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." And they were amazed at him. NAS 18 Some Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection ) came to Jesus, and began questioning Him, saying, NIV 18 Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. NAS 19 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that IF A MAN'S BROTHER DIES and leaves behind a wife AND LEAVES NO CHILD, HIS BROTHER SHOULD MARRY THE WIFE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO HIS BROTHER. NIV 19 "Teacher," they said, "Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother. NAS 20 "There were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no children. NIV 20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. NAS 21 "The second one married her, and died leaving behind no children; and the third likewise; NIV 21 The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. NAS 22 and so all seven left no children. Last of all the woman died also. NIV 22 In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too. NAS 23 "In the resurrection, when they rise again, which one's wife will she be? For all seven had married her." NIV 23 At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?" NAS 24 Jesus said to them, "Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God? NIV 24 Jesus replied, "Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? NAS 25 "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. NIV 25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. NAS 26 "But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, 'I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, and the God of Jacob '? NIV 26 Now about the dead rising--have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob' NAS 27 "He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken." NIV 27 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!" NAS 28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" NIV 28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" NAS 29 Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD ; NIV 29 "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. NAS 30 AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.' NIV 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' NAS 31 "The second is this, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these." NIV 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." NAS 32 The scribe said to Him, "Right, Teacher; You have truly stated that HE IS ONE, AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE BESIDES HIM; NIV 32 "Well said, teacher," the man replied. "You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. NAS 33 AND TO LOVE HIM WITH ALL THE HEART AND WITH ALL THE UNDERSTANDING AND WITH ALL THE STRENGTH, AND TO LOVE ONE'S NEIGHBOR AS HIMSELF, is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." NIV 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." NAS 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered intelligently, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." After that, no one would venture to ask Him any more questions. NIV 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions. NAS 35 And Jesus began to say, as He taught in the temple, "How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? NIV 35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple courts, he asked, "How is it that the teachers of the law say that the Christ is the son of David? NAS 36 "David himself said in the Holy Spirit, 'THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD , "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I PUT YOUR ENEMIES BENEATH YOUR FEET."' NIV 36 David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared: " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." ' NAS 37 "David himself calls Him 'Lord '; so in what sense is He his son?" And the large crowd enjoyed listening to Him. NIV 37 David himself calls him 'Lord.' How then can he be his son?" The large crowd listened to him with delight. NAS 38 In His teaching He was saying: "Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and like respectful greetings in the market places, NIV 38 As he taught, Jesus said, "Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted in the marketplaces, NAS 39 and chief seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets, NIV 39 and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. NAS 40 who devour widows' houses, and for appearance's sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation." NIV 40 They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely." NAS 41 And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums. NIV 41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. NAS 42 A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. NIV 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. NAS 43 Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, "Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; NIV 43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. NAS 44 for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on." NIV 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything--all she had to live on."
