Mark 11:23 The Passion Translation (TPT)

23 Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt,[a] ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’[b] and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done.


  1. Mark 11:23 The Aramaic word for doubt means “to be divided (undecided) in your heart.”
  2. Mark 11:23 The mountain and the sea can also be metaphors. Mountains in the Bible can refer to kingdoms, and the sea represents the nations (e.g., “sea of humanity”). Faith lifts up and brings with us the “mountain” of God’s kingdom realm when we go into the nations. The Greek word for mountain, oros, is related to a verb that means “to lift up and carry off and take with you.” This truth Jesus brings us is more than hyperbole; it is the active power of faith to take and carry the power and authority of the mountain—God’s kingdom realm—with us wherever we go.
