THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO

S. MAEK

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

2 Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet,

Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
"Who shall prepare thy way;

3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Make ye ready the way of the Lord,
Make his paths straight;

4 John came, who baptized in the wilderness and preached the

5 baptism of repentance unto remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the country of Judaea, and all they of Jerusalem; and they were baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing

6 their sins. And John was clothed with camel's hair, and had a leathern girdle about his loins, and did eat locusts and wild honey.

7 And he preached, saying, There cometh after me he that is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to

8 stoop down and unloose. I baptized you with water; but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Naza

10 reth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent

11 asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him. aDd a voice came out of the heavens, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased.

12 And straightway the Spirit driveth him forth into the wilderness.

13 And he was in the wilderness forty days tempted of Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

14 Now after that John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee,

15 preaching the gospel of God, and saying. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe in the gospel.

16 And passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea: for they

17 were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me. and

18 I will make you to become fishers of men. And straightway

19 they left the nets, and followed him. And going on a little further, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother,

20 who also were in the boat mending the n«ts. And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after him.

21 And they go into Capernaum: and straightway on the sabbath

22 d;iy he entered into the synagogue and taught. And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as having author

23 ity, and not as the scribes. And straightway there was in their

24 synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, saying, 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

25 One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying. Hold thy peace.

26 and come out of him. And the unclean spirit, tearing him and

27 crying with a loud voice, came out of him. And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What is this? a new teaching! with authority he commandeth

28 even the unclean spirits, and they obey him. And the report of him went out straightway every where into all the region of Galilee round about.

29 And straightway, when they were come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and

30 John. Now Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever; and

31 straightway they tell him of her: and he came and took her by the hand, and raised her up; and the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all

33 that were sick, and them that were possessed with devils. And

34 all the city was gathered together at the door. And he healed mauy that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and he suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

35 And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed.

38 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him;

37 and they found him, and say unto him, All are seeking thee.

38 And he saith unto them, Let us go elsewhere into the next towns,

39 that I may preach there also; for to this end came I forth. And he went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out devils.

40 And there cometh to him a leper, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make

41 me clean. And being moved with compassion, he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou

42 made clean. And straightway the leprosy departed from him,

43 and he was made clean. And he strictly charged him, and straight

44 way sent him out, 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 the things which Moses commanded, for a testi

45 mony unto them. But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to spread abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city, but was without in desert places, and they came to him from every quarter.

2 And when he entered again into Capernaum after some days, it

2 was noised that he was in the house. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room for them, no, not even

3 about the door: .and he spake the word unto them. And they come, bringing unto him a man sick of the palsy, borne of four.

4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it

5 up, they let down the bed whereon the sick of the palsy lay. And Jesus seeing their faith saith unto the sick of the palsy. Son, thy

6 sins are forgiven. But there were certain of the scribes sitting

7 there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak? he blasphemeth: who can forgive sins but one, even God?

8 And straightway Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, saith unto them, Why reason ye these

9 things in your hearts? Whether is easier, to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins are forgiven; or to say, Arise, and take up thy

10 bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hnth

?ower on earth to forgive sins (he saith to the sick of the palsy), say unto thee, Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thy house.

12 And he arose, and straightway took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

13 And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude

14 resorted unto him, and he taught them. And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the place of toll, and he

15 saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him. And it came to pass, that he was sitting at meat in his house, and many publicans and sinners sat down with Jesus and his disciples: for

16 there were many, and they followed him. And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with the sinners and publicans, said unto his disciples, He eateth and drinketh with

17 publicans and sinners. And when Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.

18 And John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting: and they come and say unto him, Why do John's disciples and the disciples

19 of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? And Jesus said unto them, Can the sons of the bride-chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom

20 with them, they cannot fast. But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then will they

21 fast in that day. No man seweth a piece of undressed cloth on an old garment: else that which should fill it up taketh from it, the

22 new from the old, and a worse rent is made. And no man putteth new wine into old wine-skins: else the wine will burst the skins, and the wine perisheth, and the skins: but they put new wine into fresh wine-skins.

23 And it came to pass, that he was going on the sabbath daythrough the cornfields; and his disciples began, as they went, to

24 pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold,

25 why do they on the sabbath day that which i* not lawful? And he said unto them, Did ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungered, he, and they that were with him?

26 How he entered into the house of God when Abiathar was high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which it is not lawful to eat save

27 for the priests, and gave also to them that were with him? And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man

28 for the sabbath: so that the Son of man is lord even of the sabbath. 3 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man

2 there which had his hand withered. And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might

3 accuse him. And he saith unto the man that had his hand with

4 ered. Stand forth. And he saith unto them, Is it lawful on the sabbath day to do good, or to do harm? to save a life, or to kill?

5 But they held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved at the hardening of their heart, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched

6 it forth: and his hand was restored. And the Pharisees went out, and straightway with the Herodians took counsel against him, how they might destroy him.

7 And Jesus with his disciples withdrew to the sea: and a great

8 multitude from Galilee followed: and from Judaea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and beycjnd Jordan, and about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, hearing what great things he

9 did, came unto him. And he spake to his disciples, that a little boat should wait on him because of the crowd, iest they should

10 throng him: for he had healed many; insomuch that as many as

11 had plagues pressed upon him that they might touch him. And the unclean spirits, whensoever they beheld him, fell down before

12 him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. And he charged them much that they should not make him known.

13 And he goeth up into the mountain, and calleth unto him whom

14 he himself would: and they went unto him. And he appointed ,- twelve, that chey might be with him, and that he might send them ,g forth to preacn, and to have authority to cast out devils: and y, Simon he surnamed Peter; and James the son of Zebedee, and

John the brother of James; and them he surnamed Boanerges,

18 which is, Sons of thunder: and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus,

19 and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him.

20 And he cometh into a house. And the multitude cometh

21 together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. And when his friends heard it, they went out to lay hold on him: for

22 they said, He is beside himself. And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and, By the prince of

23 the devils casteth he out the devils. And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out

34 Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom, 25 cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that bouse

26 will not be able to stand. And if Satan hath risen up against him

27 self, and is divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. But no one can enter into the house of the strong more, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his

28 house. Verily I say unto you, All their sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and their blasphemies wherewith soever

29 they shall blaspheme: but whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal 6in:

30 because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

31 And there come his mother and his brethren; and, standing with

32 out, they sent unto him, calling him. And a multitude was sitting about him; and they say unto him, Behold, thy mother and

33 thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answereth them,

34 and saith, Who is my mother and my brethren? And looking round on them which sat round about him, he saith, Behold, my

35 mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

4 And again ne began to teach by the sea side. And there is gathered unto him a very great multitude, so that he entered into a boat, and sat in the sea; and all the multitude were by the sea

2 on the land. And he taught them many things in parables, and

3 said unto them in his teaching, Hearken; Behold, the sower went

4 forth to sow: and it came to pass, as he sowed, some seed fell by

5 the way side, and the birds came and devoured it. And other fell on the rocky ground, where it had not much earth; and straightway it sprang up, because it ha«I no deepness of earth:

6 and when the sun was risen, it was scorched; and because it had

7 no root, it withered away. And other fell among the thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

8 And others fell into the good ground, and yielded fruit, growing up and increasing; and brought forth, thirtyfold, and sixtyfold,

9 and a hundredfold. And he said, Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the

11 twelve asked of him the parables. And he said unto them. Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them

12 that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be

13 forgiven them. And he saith unto them, Know ye not this

14 parable? and how shall ye know all the parables? The sower

15 soweth the word. And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; and when they have heard, straightway cometh Satan, and taketh away the word which hath been sown in them.

16 And these in like manner are they that are sown upon the rocky places, who, when they have heard the word, straightway receive it

17 with joy; and they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of
