Mark 1:23-25 The Passion Translation (TPT)

23 Suddenly, during the meeting, a demon-possessed man screamed out, 24 “Hey! Leave us alone! Jesus the victorious,[a] I know who you are. You’re God’s Holy One and you have come to destroy us!”[b]

25 Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Silence! You are bound![c] Come out of him!”


  1. Mark 1:24 As translated from the Aramaic. The Greek is “Jesus the Nazarene” (“Branch” or “Scion”).
  2. Mark 1:24 The demon knew Jesus’ true identity before the people did. This is not so much a question (Have you come to destroy us?), but rather an assertive and defiant declaration. There is no question mark in the Greek text. The demonized man was apparently comfortable in the presence of the religious teachers, but when Jesus stepped into the room, he spoke out and couldn’t resist the power of Jesus.
  3. Mark 1:25 Or “muzzled.”
