Marcus 1 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

Initium Evangelii Jesu Christi, Filii Dei.

Sicut scriptum est in Isaia propheta: Ecce ego mitto angelum meum ante faciem tuam, qui praeparabit viam tuam ante te.

Vox clamantis in deserto: Parate viam Domini, rectas facite semitas ejus.

Fuit Joannes in deserto baptizans, et praedicans baptismum poenitentiae in remissionem peccatorum.

Et egrediebatur ad eum omnis Judaeae regio, et Jerosolymitae universi, et baptizabantur ab illo in Jordanis flumine, confitentes peccata sua.

Et erat Joannes vestitus pilis cameli, et zona pellicea circa lumbos ejus, et locustas et mel silvestre edebat.

Et praedicabat dicens: Venit fortior me post me, cujus non sum dignus procumbens solvere corrigiam calceamentorum ejus.

Ego baptizavi vos aqua, ille vero baptizabit vos Spiritu Sancto.

Et factum est: in diebus illis venit Jesus a Nazareth Galilaeae: et baptizatus est a Joanne in Jordane.

10 Et statim ascendens de aqua, vidit caelos apertos, et Spiritum tamquam columbam descendentem, et manentem in ipso.

11 Et vox facta est de caelis: Tu es Filius meus dilectus, in te complacui.

12 Et statim Spiritus expulit eum in desertum.

13 Et erat in deserto quadraginta diebus, et quadraginta noctibus: et tentabatur a Satana: eratque cum bestiis, et angeli ministrabant illi.

14 Postquam autem traditus est Joannes, venit Jesus in Galilaeam, praedicans Evangelium regni Dei,

15 et dicens: Quoniam impletum est tempus, et appropinquavit regnum Dei: poenitemini, et credite Evangelio.

16 Et praeteriens secus mare Galilaeae, vidit Simonem, et Andream fratrem ejus, mittentes retia in mare (erant enim piscatores),

17 et dixit eis Jesus: Venite post me, et faciam vos fieri piscatores hominum.

18 Et protinus relictis retibus, secuti sunt eum.

19 Et progressus inde pusillum, vidit Jacobum Zebedaei, et Joannem fratrem ejus, et ipsos componentes retia in navi:

20 et statim vocavit illos. Et relicto patre suo Zebedaeo in navi cum mercenariis, secuti sunt eum.

21 Et ingrediuntur Capharnaum: et statim sabbatis ingressus in synagogam, docebat eos.

22 Et stupebant super doctrina ejus: erat enim docens eos quasi potestatem habens, et non sicut scribae.

23 Et erat in synagoga eorum homo in spiritu immundo: et exclamavit,

24 dicens: Quid nobis et tibi, Jesu Nazarene? venisti perdere nos? scio qui sis, Sanctus Dei.

25 Et comminatus est ei Jesus, dicens: Obmutesce, et exi de homine.

26 Et discerpens eum spiritus immundus, et exclamans voce magna, exiit ab eo.

27 Et mirati sunt omnes, ita ut conquirerent inter se dicentes: Quidnam est hoc? quaenam doctrina haec nova? quia in potestate etiam spiritibus immundis imperat, et obediunt ei.

28 Et processit rumor ejus statim in omnem regionem Galilaeae.

29 Et protinus egredientes de synagoga, venerunt in domum Simonis et Andreae, cum Jacobo et Joanne.

30 Decumbebat autem socrus Simonis febricitans: et statim dicunt ei de illa.

31 Et accedens elevavit eam, apprehensa manu ejus: et continuo dimisit eam febris, et ministrabat eis.

32 Vespere autem facto cum occidisset sol, afferebant ad eum omnes male habentes, et daemonia habentes:

33 et erat omnis civitas congregata ad januam.

34 Et curavit multos, qui vexabantur variis languoribus, et daemonia multa ejiciebat, et non sinebat ea loqui, quoniam sciebant eum.

35 Et diluculo valde surgens, egressus abiit in desertum locum, ibique orabat.

36 Et prosecutus est eum Simon, et qui cum illo erant.

37 Et cum invenissent eum, dixerunt ei: Quia omnes quaerunt te.

38 Et ait illis: Eamus in proximos vicos, et civitates, ut et ibi praedicem: ad hoc enim veni.

39 Et erat praedicans in synagogis eorum, et in omni Galilaea, et daemonia ejiciens.

40 Et venit ad eum leprosus deprecans eum: et genu flexo dixit ei: Si vis, potes me mundare.

41 Jesus autem misertus ejus, extendit manum suam: et tangens eum, ait illi: Volo: mundare.

42 Et cum dixisset, statim discessit ab eo lepra, et mundatus est.

43 Et comminatus est ei, statimque ejecit illum,

44 et dicit ei: Vide nemini dixeris: sed vade, ostende te principi sacerdotum, et offer pro emundatione tua, quae praecepit Moyses in testimonium illis.

45 At ille egressus coepit praedicare, et diffamare sermonem, ita ut jam non posset manifeste introire in civitatem, sed foris in desertis locis esset, et conveniebant ad eum undique.

Mark 1 New International Version (NIV)

John the Baptist Prepares the Way

The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah,[a] the Son of God,[b] as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:

“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
    who will prepare your way”[c]
“a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
    make straight paths for him.’”[d]

And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with[e] water, but he will baptize you with[f] the Holy Spirit.”

The Baptism and Testing of Jesus

At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

12 At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, 13 and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted[g] by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.

Jesus Announces the Good News

14 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Jesus Calls His First Disciples

16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.

19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. 20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Jesus Drives Out an Impure Spirit

21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”

25 “Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” 26 The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.

27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Jesus Heals Many

29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they immediately told Jesus about her. 31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.

32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. 33 The whole town gathered at the door, 34 and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was.

Jesus Prays in a Solitary Place

35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”

38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.

Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy

40 A man with leprosy[h] came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.”

41 Jesus was indignant.[i] He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.

43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning: 44 “See that you don’t tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.” 45 Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.
