Mark 9:30-50 Darby’s Translation

Jesus Again Foretells His Death

30  And going forth from thence they went through Galilee; and he would not that any one knew it; 31  for he taught his disciples and said to them, The Son of man is delivered into men's hands, and they shall kill him; and having been killed, after three days he shall rise again. 32  But they understood not the saying, and feared to ask him.

Who Is the Greatest?

33  And he came to Capernaum, and being in the house, he asked them, Of what were ye reasoning by the way? 34  And they remained silent, for by the way they had been reasoning with one another who [was] greatest. 35  And sitting down he called the twelve; and he says to them, If any one would be first, he shall be last of all, and minister of all. 36  And taking a little child he set it in their midst, and having taken it in his arms he said to them, 37  Whosoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receives me; and whosoever shall receive me, does not receive me, but him who sent me.

He That Is Not against Us Is for Us

38  And John answered him saying, Teacher, we saw some one casting out demons in thy name, who does not follow us, and we forbad him, because he does not follow us. 39  But Jesus said, Forbid him not; for there is no one who shall do a miracle in my name, and be able soon [after] to speak ill of me; 40  for he who is not against us is for us.

41  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in [my] name, 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 be a snare to one of the little ones who believe [in me], it were better for him if a millstone were hung about his neck, and he cast into the sea. 43  And if thy hand serve as a snare to thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having thy two hands to go away into hell, into the fire unquenchable; 44  [where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched]. 45  And if thy foot serve as a snare to thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lame, than having thy two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire unquenchable; 46  [where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched]. 47  And if thine eye serve as a snare to thee, cast it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire, 48  where their worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. 49  For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50  Salt [is] good, but if the salt is become saltless, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.
