Mark 8

NCV 1 Another time there was a great crowd with Jesus that had nothing to eat. So Jesus called his followers and said, NIV 1 During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said, NCV 2 "I feel sorry for these people, because they have already been with me for three days, and they have nothing to eat. NIV 2 “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. NCV 3 If I send them home hungry, they will faint on the way. Some of them live a long way from here." NIV 3 If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance.” NCV 4 Jesus' followers answered, "How can we get enough bread to feed all these people? We are far away from any town." NIV 4 His disciples answered, “But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?” NCV 5 Jesus asked, "How many loaves of bread do you have?" They answered, "Seven." NIV 5 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied. NCV 6 Jesus told the people to sit on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves, gave thanks to God, and divided the bread. He gave the pieces to his followers to give to the people, and they did so. NIV 6 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people, and they did so. NCV 7 The followers also had a few small fish. After Jesus gave thanks for the fish, he told his followers to give them to the people also. NIV 7 They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them. NCV 8 All the people ate and were satisfied. Then his followers filled seven baskets with the leftover pieces of food. NIV 8 The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. NCV 9 There were about four thousand people who ate. After they had eaten, Jesus sent them home. NIV 9 About four thousand were present. After he had sent them away, NCV 10 Then right away he got into a boat with his followers and went to the area of Dalmanutha. NIV 10 he got into the boat with his disciples and went to the region of Dalmanutha. NCV 11 The Pharisees came to Jesus and began to ask him questions. Hoping to trap him, they asked Jesus for a miracle from God. NIV 11 The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven. NCV 12 Jesus sighed deeply and said, "Why do you people ask for a miracle as a sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to you." NIV 12 He sighed deeply and said, “Why does this generation ask for a sign? Truly I tell you, no sign will be given to it.” NCV 13 Then Jesus left the Pharisees and went in the boat to the other side of the lake. NIV 13 Then he left them, got back into the boat and crossed to the other side. NCV 14 His followers had only one loaf of bread with them in the boat; they had forgotten to bring more. NIV 14 The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat. NCV 15 Jesus warned them, "Be careful! Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod." NIV 15 “Be careful,” Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod.” NCV 16 His followers discussed the meaning of this, saying, "He said this because we have no bread." NIV 16 They discussed this with one another and said, “It is because we have no bread.” NCV 17 Knowing what they were talking about, Jesus asked them, "Why are you talking about not having bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your minds closed? NIV 17 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? NCV 18 You have eyes, but you don't really see. You have ears, but you don't really listen. Remember when NIV 18 Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember? NCV 19 I divided five loaves of bread for the five thousand? How many baskets did you fill with leftover pieces of food?" They answered, "Twelve." NIV 19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”“Twelve,” they replied. NCV 20 "And when I divided seven loaves of bread for the four thousand, how many baskets did you fill with leftover pieces of food?" They answered, "Seven." NIV 20 “And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”They answered, “Seven.” NCV 21 Then Jesus said to them, "Don't you understand yet?" NIV 21 He said to them, “Do you still not understand?” NCV 22 Jesus and his followers came to Bethsaida. There some people brought a blind man to Jesus and begged him to touch the man. NIV 22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. NCV 23 So Jesus took the blind man's hand and led him out of the village. Then he spit on the man's eyes and put his hands on the man and asked, "Can you see now?" NIV 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” NCV 24 The man looked up and said, "Yes, I see people, but they look like trees walking around." NIV 24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” NCV 25 Again Jesus put his hands on the man's eyes. Then the man opened his eyes wide and they were healed, and he was able to see everything clearly. NIV 25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. NCV 26 Jesus told him to go home, saying, "Don't go into the town." NIV 26 Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into the village.” NCV 27 Jesus and his followers went to the towns around Caesarea Philippi. While they were traveling, Jesus asked them, "Who do people say I am?" NIV 27 Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?” NCV 28 They answered, "Some say you are John the Baptist. Others say you are Elijah, and others say you are one of the prophets." NIV 28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.” NCV 29 Then Jesus asked, "But who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ." NIV 29 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.” NCV 30 Jesus warned his followers not to tell anyone who he was. NIV 30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him. NCV 31 Then Jesus began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and that he would be rejected by the older Jewish leaders, the leading priests, and the teachers of the law. He told them that the Son of Man must be killed and then rise from the dead after three days. NIV 31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. NCV 32 Jesus told them plainly what would happen. Then Peter took Jesus aside and began to tell him not to talk like that. NIV 32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. NCV 33 But Jesus turned and looked at his followers. Then he told Peter not to talk that way. He said, "Go away from me, Satan! You don't care about the things of God, but only about things people think are important." NIV 33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” NCV 34 Then Jesus called the crowd to him, along with his followers. He said, "If people want to follow me, they must give up the things they want. They must be willing even to give up their lives to follow me. NIV 34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. NCV 35 Those who want to save their lives will give up true life. But those who give up their lives for me and for the Good News will have true life. NIV 35 For whoever wants to save their lifewill lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. NCV 36 It is worth nothing for them to have the whole world if they lose their souls. NIV 36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? NCV 37 They could never pay enough to buy back their souls. NIV 37 Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? NCV 38 The people who live now are living in a sinful and evil time. If people are ashamed of me and my teaching, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes with his Father's glory and with the holy angels." NIV 38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
