Mark 14:1-26 Darby’s Translation

The Leaders Plot against Jesus

14 1  Now the passover and the [feast of] unleavened bread was after two days. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might seize him by subtlety and kill him. 2  For they said, Not in the feast, lest perhaps there be a tumult of the people.

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

3  And when he was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as he lay at table, there came a woman having an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly; and having broken the alabaster flask, she poured it out upon his head. 4  And there were some indignant in themselves, and saying, Why has this waste been made of the ointment? 5  for this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor. And they spoke very angrily at her. 6  But Jesus said, Let her alone; why do ye trouble her? she has wrought a good work as to me; 7  for ye have the poor always with you, and whenever ye would ye can do them good; but me ye have not always. 8  What she could she has done. She has beforehand anointed my body for the burial. 9  And verily I say unto you, Wheresoever these glad tidings may be preached in the whole world, what this [woman] has done shall be also spoken of for a memorial of her.

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus

10  And Judas Iscariote, one of the twelve, went away to the chief priests that he might deliver him up to them; 11  and they, when they heard it, rejoiced, and promised him to give money. And he sought how he could opportunely deliver him up.

Jesus Eats the Passover with His Disciples

12  And the first day of unleavened bread, when they slew the passover, his disciples say to him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare, that thou mayest eat the passover? 13  And he sends two of his disciples, and says to them, Go into the city, and a man shall meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him. 14  And wheresoever he enters, say to the master of the house, The Teacher says, Where is my guest-chamber where I may eat the passover with my disciples? 15  and he will shew you a large upper room furnished ready. There make ready for us. 16  And his disciples went away and came into the city, and found as he had said to them; and they made ready the passover. 17  And when evening was come, he comes with the twelve. 18  And as they lay at table and were eating, Jesus said, Verily I say to you, One of you shall deliver me up; he who is eating with me. 19  And they began to be grieved, and to say to him, one by one, Is it I? [and another, Is it I?] 20  But he answered and said to them, One of the twelve, he who dips with me in the dish. 21  The Son of man goes indeed as it is written concerning him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is delivered up; [it were] good for that man if he had not been born. 22  And as they were eating, Jesus, having taken bread, when he had blessed, broke [it], and gave [it] to them, and said, Take [this]: this is my body. 23  And having taken [the] cup, when he had given thanks, he gave [it] to them, and they all drank out of it. 24  And he said to them, This is my blood, that of the [new] covenant, that shed for many. 25  Verily I say to you, I will no more drink at all of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
