Mark 1

1:2  Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet, Behold1, I send my messenger2 before thy face3, Who shall prepare thy way4.

1:3  The voice1 of one crying in the wilderness2, Make ye ready the way of the Lord3, Make his paths straight;

1:4  John came, who baptized in the wilderness and preached the baptism of repentance unto remission of sins1.

1:5  And there went out unto him all the country of Judaea1, and all they of Jerusalem; And they were baptized of him2 in the river Jordan, confessing their sins3.

1:6  And John was clothed with camel's hair1, and [had] a leathern girdle about his loins2, and did eat locusts3 and wild honey4.

1:7  And he preached, saying, There cometh1 after me2 he that is mightier than I3, the latchet4 of whose shoes5 I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose6.

1:8  I baptized you in water; But he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit.

1:9  And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan1.

1:10  And straightway coming up out of the water1, he saw2 the heavens rent asunder3, and the Spirit4 as a dove descending upon him5:

1:11  And a voice came out of the heavens1, Thou art2 my beloved Son3, in thee4 I am well pleased5.

1:12  And straightway1 the Spirit driveth him forth2 into the wilderness3.

1:13  And he was in the wilderness1 forty days2 tempted of Satan3; And he was with the wild beasts4; And the angels ministered unto him5.

1:14  Now after John was delivered up1, Jesus came into Galilee2, preaching the gospel of God,

1:15  and saying1, The time is fulfilled2, and the kingdom of God is at hand3: repent ye, and believe in the gospel4.

1:16  And passing along by the sea of Galilee1, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net2 in the sea; for they were fishers3.

1:17  And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me1, and I will make you to become fishers of men2.

1:18  And straightway they left the nets, and followed him.

1:19  And going on a little further, he saw James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending the nets.

1:20  And straightway he called them1: and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after him2.

1:21  And they go into Capernaum1; and straightway on the sabbath day2 he entered into the synagogue and taught3.

1:22  And they were astonished at his teaching1: For he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes2.

1:23  And straightway there was in their synagogue1 a man with an unclean spirit2; and he cried out3,

1:24  saying, What have we to do with thee1, Jesus thou Nazarene? art thou come to destroy us2? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God3.

1:25  And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him1.

1:26  And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying with a loud voice1, came out of him.

1:27  And they were all amazed1, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What is this? a new teaching! with authority he commandeth even the unclean spirits2, and they obey him.

1:28  And the report of him went out straightway everywhere into all the region of Galilee round about1.

1:29  And straightway, when they were come out of the synagogue1, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew2, with James and John.

1:30  Now Simon's wife's mother1 lay sick of a fever; and straightway they tell him of her:

1:31  and he came and took her by the hand, and raised her up1; and the fever left her, and she ministered unto them2.

1:32  And at even, when the sun did set1, they brought unto him all that were sick, and them that were possessed with demons2.

1:34  And he healed many that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him1.

1:35  And in the morning, a great while before day1, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed3.

1:36  And Simon1 and they that were with him2 followed after him3;

1:37  and they found him, and say unto him, All are seeking thee1.

1:38  And he saith unto them, Let us go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for to this end came I forth1.

1:39  And he went into their synagogues1 throughout all Galilee2, preaching and casting out demons3.

1:40  And there cometh to him a leper1, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean3.

1:41  And being moved with compassion, he stretched forth his hand, and touched him1, and saith unto him, I will; be thou made clean2.

1:42  And straightway the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean1.

1:43  And he strictly charged him1, and straightway sent him out,

1:44  and saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing the things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

1:45  But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to spread abroad the matter1, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city,2 but was without in desert places3: and they came to him from every quarter.
