Mark 10:32-52 Darby’s Translation

Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time

32  And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going on before them; and they were amazed, and were afraid as they followed. And taking the twelve again to [him], he began to tell them what was going to happen to him: 33  Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be delivered up to the chief priests and to the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him up to the nations: 34  and they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him; and after three days he shall rise again.

The Request of James and John

35  And there come to him James and John, the sons of Zebedee, saying [to him], Teacher, we would that whatsoever we may ask thee, thou wouldst do it for us. 36  And he said to them, What would ye that I should do for you? 37  And they said to him, Give to us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left hand, in thy glory. 38  And Jesus said to them, Ye do not know what ye ask. Are ye able to drink the cup which I drink, or be baptised with the baptism that I am baptised with? 39  And they said to him, We are able. And Jesus said to them, The cup that I drink ye will drink and with the baptism that I am baptised with ye will be baptised, 40  but to sit on my right hand or on my left is not mine to give, but for those for whom it is prepared. 41  And the ten having heard [of it], began to be indignant about James and John. 42  But Jesus having called them to [him], says to them, Ye know that those who are esteemed to rule over the nations exercise lordship over them; and their great men exercise authority over them; 43  but it is not thus among you; but whosoever would be great among you, shall be your minister; 44  and whosoever would be first of you shall be bondman of all. 45  For also the Son of man did not come to be ministered to, but to minister, and give his life a ransom for many.

Blind Bartimeus Receives Sight

46  And they come to Jericho, and as he was going out from Jericho, and his disciples and a large crowd, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, the blind [man], sat by the wayside begging. 47  And having heard that it was Jesus the Nazaraean, he began to cry out and to say, O Son of David, Jesus, have mercy on me. 48  And many rebuked him, that he might be silent; but he cried so much the more, Son of David, have mercy on me. 49  And Jesus, standing still, desired him to be called. And they call the blind [man], saying to him, Be of good courage, rise up, he calls thee. 50  And, throwing away his garment, he started up and came to Jesus. 51  And Jesus answering says to him, What wilt thou that I shall do to thee? And the blind [man] said to him, Rabboni, that I may see. 52  And Jesus said to him, Go, thy faith has healed thee. And he saw immediately, and followed him in the way.
