Mark 1 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

As it is written in Esaias, the prophet, Lo! I send mine angel before thy face, that shall make thy way ready before thee.

The voice of a crier in desert, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, make ye his paths right. [The voice of one crying in desert, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, make ye his paths rightful.]

John was in desert baptizing, and preaching the baptism of penance, into remission of sins.

And all the country of Judaea went out to him, and all men of Jerusalem; and they were baptized of him in the flume Jordan [and were baptized of him in the flood of Jordan], acknowledging their sins.

And John was clothed with hairs of camels, and a girdle of skin was about his loins; and he ate honeysuckles, and wild honey,[a]

and preached, and said [saying], A stronger than I shall come after me, and I am not worthy to kneel down, and unloose [the thong of] his shoes.

I have baptized you in water; but he shall baptize you in the Holy Ghost.

And it was done in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

10 And at once he went up of the water, and saw heavens opened, and the Holy Ghost coming down as a culver [And anon he ascending up of the water, saw heavens opened, and the Spirit coming down as a culver], and dwelling on him.

11 And a voice was made from heavens, Thou art my loved Son, in thee I am pleased.

12 And at once the Spirit put him forth into desert. [And anon the Spirit putted out him into desert.]

13 And he was in desert forty days and forty nights, and was tempted of Satan, and he was with beasts [and was with beasts], and angels ministered to him.

14 But after that John was taken, Jesus came into Galilee, and preached the gospel of the kingdom of God [preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God],

15 and said [and saying], That the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God shall come nigh; do ye penance [repent ye], and believe ye to the gospel.

16 And as he passed beside the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon, and Andrew, his brother, casting their nets into the sea; for they were fishers.

17 And Jesus said to them, Come ye after me; [and] I shall make you to be made fishers of men.

18 And at once they left the nets, and followed him. [And anon the nets forsaken, they followed him.]

19 And he went forth from thence a little, and saw James of Zebedee, and John, his brother, in a boat making their nets. [And he gone forth thence a little, saw James of Zebedee, and John, his brother, and them in the boat making nets.]

20 And at once [And anon] he called them; and they left Zebedee, their father, in the boat with hired servants, and they followed him.

21 And they entered into Capernaum, and at once in the sabbaths [And they went forth into Capernaum, and anon in the sabbaths], he went into the synagogue, and taught them.

22 And they wondered on his teaching; for he taught them, as he that had power, and not as [the] scribes.

23 And in the synagogue of them was a man in an unclean spirit, and he cried out,

24 and said [saying], What to us and to thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? hast thou come to destroy us? I know that thou art the holy of God.

25 And Jesus threatened him, and said [saying], Wax [thou] dumb, and go out of the man.

26 And the unclean spirit wrenching him, and crying with a great voice, went out from him.

27 And all men wondered, so that they sought within themselves, and said [And all men wondered, so that they asked among themselves, saying], What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for in power he commandeth to unclean spirits, and they obey to him.

28 And the fame of him went forth at once [And the tale, or tiding, of him went forth anon] into all the country of Galilee.

29 And at once they went out of the synagogue, and came into the house of Simon and of Andrew, with James and John. [And anon they going out of the synagogue came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.]

30 And the mother of Simon's wife lay sick in the fevers [lay sick in fevers]; and anon they say to him of her.

31 And he came nigh, and areared her [up], and when he had taken her hand, at once the fever left her, and she served them. [And he coming to, reared her up, the hand of her taken, and anon the fever left her, and she ministered to them.]

32 But when the eventide was come, and the sun was gone down, they brought to him all that were of mal-ease, and them that had fiends. [Forsooth the evening made, when the sun went down, they brought to him all having evil, and having devils.]

33 And all the city was gathered at the gate.

34 And he healed many, that had diverse sicknesses, and he cast out many fiends [And he healed many that were travailed with diverse sores, and he cast out many devils], and he suffered them not to speak, for they knew him.

35 And he rose full early, and went out [And in the morrowing full early he rising], and went into a desert place, and prayed there.

36 And Simon followed him, and they that were with him.

37 And when they had found him, they said to him, That all men seek thee.

38 And he said to them, Go we into the next towns and cities, that I preach also there, for thereto I came.

39 And he preached in the synagogues of them, and in all Galilee, and casted out fiends.

40 And a leprous man came to him, and besought [beseeching him], [and] kneeling, and said, If thou wilt, thou mayest cleanse me.

41 And Jesus had mercy on him, and stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said to him [Forsooth Jesus, having mercy on him, stretched out his hand, and, touching him, saith to him], I will, be thou made clean.

42 And when he had said this, at once [anon] the leprosy parted away from him, and he was cleansed.

43 And Jesus threatened him, and at once put him out, [And he threatened him, and anon cast him out,]

44 and said to him [and saith to him], See thou, say to no man; but go, show thee to the prince of priests, and offer for thy cleansing into witnessing to them, those things that Moses bade [and offer for thy cleansing those things that Moses bade, into witnessing to them].

45 And he went out, and began to preach, and to publish the word, so that now he might not go openly into the city [so that now he might not openly enter into the city], but be withoutforth in desert places; and they came to him on all sides.

  1. Mark 1:6 And John was clothed with hairs of camel, and a girdle of skin about his loins; and he ate locusts, and wild honey,

Mark 1 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The office of John the Baptist. The baptism of Christ, his fasting, his preaching, and the calling of Peter, Andrew, James, and John. Christ heals the man with the unclean spirit, helps Peter’s mother-in-law, and cleanses the leper.

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as it is written in the prophets: Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who shall prepare your way before you. The voice of a crier in the wilderness: Prepare ye the way of the Lord; make his paths straight!

John baptized in the wilderness, and preached the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And all the countryside of Judea and the people of Jerusalem went out to him, and were all baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of skin about his loins. And he ate locusts and wild honey, and preached, saying, One mightier than I comes after me, whose shoe latchet I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

And it came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth, a town of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan River. 10 And as soon as Jesus came out of the water, John saw heaven open, and the Holy Spirit descending upon him like a dove. 11 And there came a voice from heaven: You are my dear Son, in whom I delight.

12 And immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness. 13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, and was tried by Satan, and was with wild creatures. And the angels ministered to him.

14 After John was taken, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God 15 and saying, The time has come, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel!

16 As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and John his brother casting nets into the sea, for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. 18 And straightaway they left their nets and followed him. 19 And when he had gone a little further, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother as they were in the boat mending their nets. 20 And right away he called them. And they left their father Zebedee in the boat with his hired servants, and went their way after him.

21 And they entered into Capernaum. And straightaway on the Sabbath days he entered into the synagogue and taught. 22 And the people marvelled at his teaching. For he taught them as one who had power with him, and not as the scribes.

23 And there was in their synagogue a man vexed with an unclean spirit, who cried out, 24 saying, Let us be! What have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know you, who you are: even the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace and come out of him!

26 And the unclean spirit tore the man and cried out with a loud voice, and came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned one another among themselves, saying, What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For he commands the foul spirits with power, and they obey him. 28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region bordering on Galilee.

29 And directly, as soon as they had left the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. 30 And Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick of a fever. And right away they told him of her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. And the fever left her immediately, and she ministered to them.

32 And in the evening, when the sun was down, people brought to him all their sick and those that were possessed with devils. 33 And all the city gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many who were sick of different diseases. And he cast out many devils, and would not permit the devils to speak, because they knew him.

35 And in the morning very early, Jesus arose and went out to a solitary place, and there prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him followed after Jesus. 37 And when they had found him, they said to him, All the people are searching for you. 38 He said to them, Let us go into the next towns so that I can preach there also; for truly, I came out for that purpose.

39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast the devils out.

40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, who kneeled down to him and said to him, If you will, you can make me clean. 41 And Jesus had compassion on him, and put forth his hand, touched him, and said to him, I will; be clean. 42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed. 43 And Jesus charged the man, and sent him away directly, 44 and said to him, See that you say nothing to anyone, but go and show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.

45 But the man (as soon as he had left) began to talk freely, and to tell everyone what had been done, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter into the towns, but was out in the country. And people came to him from every quarter.

Mark 1 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ, According to Mark

4 John baptizeth. 6 His apparel and meat. 9 Jesus is baptized. 12 He is tempted. 14 He preacheth the Gospel, 21 and 29 he teacheth in the Synagogues. 23 He healeth one that had a devil. 29 Peter’s mother-in-law. 32 Many diseased persons. 40 The leper.

The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God:

[a]As it is written in the [b]Prophets, Behold, [c]I send my messenger [d]before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, is, Prepare the way of the Lord: make his paths straight.

[e]John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the [f]baptism of amendment of life, for remission of sins.

And all the country of Judea, and they of Jerusalem went out unto him, and were all baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins: and he did eat locusts and wild honey,

[g]And preached, saying, A stronger than I cometh after me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to [h]stoop down, and unloose.

Truth it is, I have [i]baptized you with water: but he will baptize you with the holy Ghost.

[j]And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth, a city of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

10 [k]And as soon as [l]he was come out of the water, John saw the heavens cloven in twain, and the holy Ghost descending upon him like a dove.

11 Then there was a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am [m]well pleased.

12 [n]And immediately the Spirit [o]driveth him into the wilderness.

13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, and was tempted of Satan: he was also with the wild beasts, and the Angels ministered unto him.

14 [p]Now after that John was committed to prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe the Gospel.

16 [q]And as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishers.)

17 Then Jesus said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you to be fishers of men.

18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

19 [r]And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, as they were in the ship, mending their nets.

20 And anon he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with his hired servants, and went their way after him.

21 ¶ So they entered into [s]Capernaum: and straightway on the Sabbath day he entered into the Synagogue, and taught.

22 And they were astonied at his doctrine, for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the Scribes.

23 [t]And there was in their Synagogue a man [u]in whom was an unclean spirit, and he cried out,

24 Saying, Ah, what have we to do with thee, O [v]Jesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroy us? I know thee what thou art, even thou [w]holy one of God.

25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

26 And the unclean spirit [x]tare him, and cried with a loud voice, and came out of him.

27 And they were all amazed, so that they demanded [y]one of another, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for he [z]commandeth even the foul spirits with authority, and they obey him.

28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region [aa]bordering on Galilee.

29 [ab]And as soon as they were come out of the Synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

30 And Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they told him of her.

31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up, and the fever forsook her by and by, and she ministered unto them.

32 And when even was come, at what time the Sun setteth, they brought to him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door.

34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases: and he cast out many devils, and [ac]suffered not the devils to say that they knew him.

35 And in the morning very early before day, Jesus arose and went out into a solitary place, and there prayed.

36 And Simon, and they that were with him, followed carefully after him.

37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.

38 Then he said unto them, Let us go into the [ad]next towns, that I may preach there also: for I came out for that purpose.

39 And he preached in their Synagogues, throughout all Galilee, and cast the devils out.

40 [ae]And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeled down unto him, and said to him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

41 And Jesus had compassion, and put forth his hand, and touched him, and said to him, I will: be thou clean.

42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean.

43 And after he had given him a straight commandment, he sent him away forthwith,

44 [af]And said unto him, See thou say nothing to any man, but get thee hence, and show thyself to the [ag]Priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimonial unto them.

45 But when he was departed, he began to tell many things, and to publish the matter: so that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.

Mark 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; as it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judæa, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; and preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. 10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11 and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

12 And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. 13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15 and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. 16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. 19 And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets. 20 And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. 28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

29 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. 33 And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. 36 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. 37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. 38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. 39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 43 And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; 44 and saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
