Mark 10-11 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
10 And He rose from thence, and went into the region of Judea by the farther side of the Jordan. And the people resorted unto Him again; and as He was wont, He taught them again.
2 And the Pharisees came to Him and asked Him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife?” — testing Him.
3 And He answered and said unto them, “What did Moses command you?”
4 And they said, “Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.”
5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
6 But from the beginning of the creation, ’God made them male and female.
7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife,
8 and the two shall be one flesh.’ So then they are no more two, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
10 And in the house His disciples asked Him again about the same matter.
11 And He said unto them, “Whosoever shall put away his wife and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
12 And if a woman shall put away her husband and be married to another, she committeth adultery.”
13 And they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them; and His disciples rebuked those who brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased and said unto them, “Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”
16 And He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them.
17 And when He had gone forth onto the road, there came one running, and knelt before Him and asked Him, “Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?”
18 And Jesus said unto him, “Why callest thou Me good? There is none good but One, that is, God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, defraud not, honor thy father and mother.’”
20 And he answered and said unto Him, “Master, all these have I observed from my youth.”
21 Then Jesus, beholding him, loved him and said unto him, “One thing thou lackest: Go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.”
22 And he was sad at that saying and went away grieved, for he had great possessions.
23 And Jesus looked round about and said unto His disciples, “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God!”
24 And the disciples were astonished at His words, but Jesus answered again and said unto them, “Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.”
26 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?”
27 And Jesus, looking upon them, said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
28 Then Peter began to say unto Him, “Lo, we have left all and have followed Thee.”
29 And Jesus answered and said, “Verily I say unto you, there is no man that hath left house or brethren or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands for My sake and the Gospel’s,
30 but he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brethren and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the world to come, eternal life.
31 But many that are first shall be last, and the last first.”
32 And they were on the way going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus went before them; and they were amazed, and as they followed, they were afraid. And He took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things would happen unto Him,
33 saying, “Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man shall be delivered unto the chief priests and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles.
34 And they shall mock Him and shall scourge Him, and shall spit upon Him and shall kill Him. And the third day He shall rise again.”
35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came unto Him, saying, “Master, we would that Thou should do for us whatsoever we shall desire.”
36 And He said unto them, “What would ye that I should do for you?”
37 They said unto Him, “Grant unto us that we may sit, one on Thy right hand and the other on Thy left hand, in Thy glory.”
38 But Jesus said unto them, “Ye know not what ye ask. Can ye drink of the cup that I drink of, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?”
39 And they said unto Him, “We can.” And Jesus said unto them, “Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized with, also shall ye be baptized.
40 But to sit on My right hand and on My left hand is not Mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.”
41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.
42 But Jesus called them to Him and said unto them, “Ye know that they that are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you shall be your minister,
44 and whosoever of you would be the chiefest shall be servant of all.
45 For even the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
46 And they came to Jericho. And as He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the wayside begging.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace; but he cried out all the more, “Thou Son of David, have mercy on me!”
49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying unto him, “Be of good comfort; rise; He calleth thee.”
50 And he, casting away his garment, rose and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, “What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?” The blind man said unto Him, “Lord, that I might receive my sight.”
52 And Jesus said unto him, “Go thy way. Thy faith hath made thee whole.” And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
11 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, He sent forth two of His disciples
2 and said unto them, “Go your way into the village opposite you, and as soon as ye have entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon man never sat. Loose him and bring him.
3 And if any man say unto you, ‘Why do ye this?’ say ye that the Lord hath need of him, and straightway he will send him hither.”
4 And they went their way and found the colt tied outside by the door at a place where two ways met, and they loosed him.
5 And certain of those who stood there said unto them, “What do ye, loosing the colt?”
6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded, and they let them go.
7 And they brought the colt to Jesus and cast their garments on him, and He sat upon him.
8 And many spread their garments upon the way, and others cut down branches off the trees and strewed them upon the way.
9 And those who went before, and those who followed, cried, saying, “Hosanna! Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord!
10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem and into the temple. And when He had looked round about upon all things, as now the eventide had come, He went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
12 And on the morrow, when they had come from Bethany, He was hungry;
13 and seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He might find any thing thereon. But when He came to it He found nothing but leaves, for the time for figs was not yet.
14 And Jesus spoke and said unto it, “Let no man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.” And His disciples heard it.
15 And they came to Jerusalem. And Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out those who sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who sold doves.
16 And He would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
17 And He taught, saying unto them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called for all nations the house of prayer’? But ye have made it a den of thieves.”
18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people were astonished at His doctrine.
19 And when evening had come, He went out of the city.
20 And in the morning as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
21 And Peter, calling to remembrance, said unto Him, “Master, behold, the fig tree which Thou cursed is withered away.”
22 And Jesus answering, said unto them, “Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea,’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
25 And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have aught against any, that your Father also who is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in Heaven forgive your trespasses.”
27 And they came again to Jerusalem. And as He was walking in the temple, there came to Him the chief priests and the scribes and the elders,
28 and said unto Him, “By what authority doest thou these things? And who gave thee this authority to do these things?”
29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, “I will also ask of you one question; answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
30 The baptism of John: was it from Heaven, or of men? Answer Me.”
31 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we shall say ‘From Heaven,’ he will say ‘Why then did ye not believe him?’
32 But if we shall say ‘Of men’” — they feared the people, for all men counted John that he was a prophet indeed.
33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, “We cannot tell.” And Jesus answering, said unto them, “Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.”
