Mark 9:30-50 American Standard Version

Jesus Again Foretells His Death

30  And they went forth from thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it. 31  For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he shall rise again. 32  But they understood not the saying, and were afraid to ask him.

Who Is the Greatest?

33  And they came to Capernaum: and when he was in the house he asked them, What were ye reasoning on the way? 34  But they held their peace: for they had disputed one with another on the way, who [was] the greatest. 35  And he sat down, and called the twelve; and he saith unto them, If any man would be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all. 36  And he took a little child, and set him in the midst of them: and taking him in his arms, he said unto them, 37  Whosoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

He That Is Not against Us Is for Us

38  John said unto him, Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followed not us. 39  But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. 40  For he that is not against us is for us.

41  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink, because ye are Christ's, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Temptations to Sin

42  And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it were better for him if a great millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43  And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire. 44  [where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.] 45  And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell. 46  [where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.] 47  And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell; 48  where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 49  For every one shall be salted with fire. 50  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost its saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace one with another.
