Mark Chapter 3

Mark 3:1 And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

Mark 3:2 So they watched Him, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath day; that they might accuse Him.

Mark 3:3 Then He said to the man which had the withered hand, rise among us.

Mark 3:4 And He said to them, is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life or to kill? But they held their peace.

Mark 3:5 When He had looked around on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, stretch out your hand. So, he stretched out his hand and it was restored whole as the other.

Mark 3:6 Then the Pharisees went out, and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.

Mark 3:7 But Jesus withdrew himself with His disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed Him, and from Judea,

Mark 3:8 Even from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyond the Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came to Him.

Mark 3:9 So he spoke to His disciples that a small boat should be devoted continually for Him because of the multitude, unless they should crush Him.

Mark 3:10 For He had healed many; so much so that they pressed on Him to touch Him, as many as had diseases.

Mark 3:11 For unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried, saying, You are the Son of God!

Mark 3:12 But He strictly instructed them that they should not make Him known.

Mark 3:13 Then He went up to a mountain and called to Him those whom He wanted: and they came to Him.

Mark 3:14 For He chose twelve, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them out to preach,

Mark 3:15 and to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out demons:

Mark 3:16 Simon he surnamed Peter;

Mark 3:17 and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and He surnamed them Boanerges, which is, the Sons of Thunder:

Mark 3:18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

Mark 3:19 and Judas Iscariot, who later betrayed Him: and they went into a house.

Mark 3:20 Then the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

Mark 3:21 When His friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold of Him: for they said, He is out of His mind.

Mark 3:22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, by the prince of the demons He casts out demons.

Mark 3:23 Then He called them to Him, and said to them in parables, how can Satan cast out Satan?

Mark 3:24 If a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 If a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.

Mark 3:27 No man can enter a strong man’s house, and plunder his goods, unless he will first bind the strong man; and then he will plunder his house.

Mark 3:28 Truthfully, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may speak:

Mark 3:29 But he that blasphemes against the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness into the New Covenant age but is in danger of perpetual punishment for the error.

Mark 3:30 Because they said, He has an unclean spirit.

Mark 3:31 Then His brothers came and His mother, and standing outside, sent for Him, calling Him.

Mark 3:32 Now the multitude sat about Him, and they said to Him, behold, Your mother and Your brothers outside seek for You.

Mark 3:33 But He answered them, and said, who is My mother, or My brothers?

Mark 3:34 Then He looked around on those who sat about Him, and said, behold My mother and My brothers!

Mark 3:35 For whoever will do the will of God, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother.
