Mark Chapter 14

Mark 14:1 After two days was the Feast of the Passover, and of Unleavened Bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by trickery, and put Him to death.

Mark 14:2 But they said, not on the feast day, unless there be a riot by the people.

Mark 14:3 Being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as He sat to eat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she broke the box, and poured it on His head.

Mark 14:4 There were some that had resentment within themselves, and said, why was this waste of the ointment made?

Mark 14:5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and have been given to the poor. So they murmured against her.

Mark 14:6 But Jesus said, leave her alone; why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me.

Mark 14:7 For you have the poor with you at all times, and whenever you want you may do them good: but Me you will not have at all times.

Mark 14:8 She has done what she could: she is come beforehand to anoint My body for burial.

Mark 14:9 Truthfully, I say to you, wherever this gospel will be preached throughout the whole world, this also what she has done will be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Mark 14:10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests, to betray Him to them.

Mark 14:11 When they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. So, he sought how he might conveniently betray Him.

Mark 14:12 Now the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover, His disciples said to Him, where do You want us to go and prepare, that You may eat the Passover?

Mark 14:13 He sent out two of His disciples, and said to them, go into the city, and there you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water: follow him.

Mark 14:14 Wherever he will go in, you say to the master of the house, the Master says, where is the guest chamber, where I will eat the Passover with My disciples?

Mark 14:15 He will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.

Mark 14:16 So His disciples went out, and came into the city, and found as He had said to them: and they made ready the Passover.

Mark 14:17 In the evening He came with the twelve.

Mark 14:18 Now as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, truthfully I say to you, one of you who eats with Me will betray Me.

Mark 14:19 Then they began to be distressed, and to say to Him one by one, is it I? And another said, is it I?

Mark 14:20 So He answered and said to them, it is one of the twelve, that dips with Me in the dish.

Mark 14:21 The Son of man indeed goes, as it is written of Him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! Better were it for that man if he had never been born.

Mark 14:22 As they ate, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave to them, and said, take, eat: this is My body.

Mark 14:23 And He took the cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them: and they all drank of it.

Mark 14:24 And He said to them, this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.

Mark 14:25 Truthfully, I say to you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

Mark 14:26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Mark 14:27 Then Jesus said to them, all of you will stumble because of Me this night: for it is written, I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.

Mark 14:28 But after I have risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

Mark 14:29 But Peter said to Him, although all will stumble, yet I will not.

Mark 14:30 Jesus said to him, truthfully I say to you, that this day, even in this night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times.

Mark 14:31 But he spoke the more vehemently, if I should die with You, I will not deny You in any way. Likewise also they all said.

Mark 14:32 They came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and He said to His disciples, sit here, while I will pray.

Mark 14:33 And He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be troubled, and to be very distressed;

Mark 14:34 Then He said to them, my soul is exceedingly sorrowful to death: wait here, and watch.

Mark 14:35 So He went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.

Mark 14:36 For He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible for You; take away this cup from Me: nevertheless not what I will, but what You will.

Mark 14:37 Then He came, and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, Simon, do you sleep? Could you not watch one hour?

Mark 14:38 Watch and pray, unless you enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is powerless.

Mark 14:39 Yet again He went away, and prayed, and spoke the same words.

Mark 14:40 When He returned, He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy, neither did they know what to answer Him.

Mark 14:41 Then he came the third time, and said to them, sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Mark 14:42 Rise up let us go; look, he that betrays Me is at hand.

Mark 14:43 Immediately, while He yet spoke, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitudewithswordsand clubs, fromthe chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

Mark 14:44 Now he that betrayed Him had given them a signal, saying, whomever I will kiss, that same is He; take Him, and lead Him away safely.

Mark 14:45 As soon as he had come, he went immediately to Him, and said, Master, Master; and kissed Him.

Mark 14:46 So they laid their hands on Him, and took Him.

Mark 14:47 But one of them that stood by drew a sword, and struck a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

Mark 14:48 Then Jesus answered and said to them, have you come out, as against a thief, with swords and with clubs to take Me?

Mark 14:49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you did not take hold of Me: but the Scriptures must be fulfilled.

Mark 14:50 Then they all left Him, and fled.

Mark 14:51 Now there followed Him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:

Mark 14:52 Then he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

Mark 14:53 So they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

Mark 14:54 Yet Peter followed him from a distance, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

Mark 14:55 Now the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put Him to death; and found none.

Mark 14:56 For many gave false witness against Him, but their witness agreed not together.

Mark 14:57 Then there arose certain, and gave false witness against Him, saying,

Mark 14:58 we heard Him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

Mark 14:59 But neither did their witness agree together.

Mark 14:60 So the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, you have nothing to reply? What is it which these witness against You?

Mark 14:61 But He held His peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, and said to Him, are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

Mark 14:62 Jesus said, I am: and you will see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the cloud of heaven.

Mark 14:63 Then the high priest tore his clothes, and said, why do we need any further witnesses?

Mark 14:64 You have heard the blasphemy: what do you think? And they all condemned Him to be guilty of death.

Mark 14:65 Some began to spit on Him, and to cover His face, and to beat Him, and to say to Him, prophesy: and the servants did strike Him with the palms of their hands.

Mark 14:66 As Peter was below in the palace, there came one of the servant girls of the high priest:

Mark 14:67 when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked on him, and said, and you also were with Jesus of Nazareth.

Mark 14:68 But he denied, saying, I do not know, I neither understand what you say. And he went out into the porch; and the rooster crowed.

Mark 14:69 Then a servant girl saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, this is one of them.

Mark 14:70 But he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilean, and your speech agrees to that.

Mark 14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I do not know this Man of whom you speak.

Mark 14:72 And the second time the rooster crowed. And Peter remembered the word that Jesus said to him, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times. When he thought on this, he wept.
