Marcos 8

1 BUT in those days when the multitude was great and there was nothing for them to eat, he called his disciples, and said to them,

2 I have compassion on this multitude, for behold three days have they continued with me, and there is nothing which they may eat.

3 And if it be that I send them away fasting to their houses, they will faint in the way; for some of them come from afar.

4 His disciples say to him, Whence can any one here in the wilderness satisfy with bread all these?

5 And he asked them, How many loaves have you? They say to him, Seven;

6 and he directed the multitudes to recline upon the ground, and he took those seven loaves, and blessed and brake and gave to his disciples that they should set, and they set before the assemblies.

7 And there were fishes, a few: and also over them he blessed, and said that they should set them.

8 And they all ate and were satisfied, and took up the abundancies of the fragments, seven panniers.

9 Now the men who had eaten were about four thousand: and he dismissed them,

10 and immediately ascended into a vessel with his disciples, and came to the region of Dalmanutha.

11 AND there came forth Pharishee, and began to question with him, and they demanded of him the sign from heaven, tempting him.

12 And he groaned in his spirit, and said, Why seeketh this generation the sign? Amen I say to you, There shall not be given the sign unto this generation.

13 And he left them, and ascended into the ship, and went to that overland.

14 And they had forgotten to take with them bread, and but one cake was with them in the ship.

15 And he counselled them, and said to them, Look and beware of the leaven of the Pharishee, and of the leaven of Herodes.

16 And they reasoned one with another, saying, Because we have no bread.

17 But Jeshu knew, and said to them, Why reason you because you have no bread? do you not yet know nor under stand? is your heart still hard?

18 and eyes have you, and not see? and ears have you, and not hear? neither remember you?

19 When those five loaves I brake to five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up? They said to him, Twelve.

20 He saith to them. And when seven to four thousand, how many panniers of fragments when filled took you up? They say, Seven.

21 He saith to them, How do you not yet understand?

22 And he came to Beth-tsaida; and they brought to him a blind man, and prayed of him to touch him.

23 And he took the hand of the blind man, and led him forth without from the village; and spat in his eyes, and laid (on them) his hand, and inquired whether he saw.

24 And he looked, and said, I see the sons of man as the trees, walking.

25 Again he laid his hand upon his eyes, and he was restored, and he saw every thing clearly.

26 And he sent him to his house, and told him to go not into the village, nor to inform any man in the village.

27 And Jeshu went forth and his disciples into the villages of Kesarea of Philipos, and he interrogated his disciples by the way, saying to them, What say men concerning me that I am?

28 But they answered, That (thou art) Juchanon the Baptizer; and others, that (thou art) Elia; and others, one from the prophets.

29 Jeshu said to them, But you, what say you concerning me that I am? Shemun Kipha answered and said to him, Thus art the Meshicha, the Son of Aloha the Living.

30 And he charged them that to any one they should not tell concerning him.

31 And he began to teach them, that it was to be that the Son of man should suffer much, and be rejected by the elders, and by the chief priests, and by the Sophree, and be killed, and that the third day he should arise!

32 And he spake the word with them fully. And Kipha took him, and began to chide him.

33 But he turned, and, beholding his disciples, reprehended Shemun, and said, Get thee behind me, Satana, for thou thinkest not that which is of Aloha, but that which is of the sons of men.

34 AND Jeshu called to the assemblies with his disciples, and said to them, Whoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and come after me.

35 For every one who willeth to save his life shall lose it; and every one who shall lose his life on account of me and on account of my gospel, shall save it.

36 For what is a man profited, if the whole world he gain, and his soul be lost?

37 Or what shall a son of man give (as) the compensation for his soul?

38 For whoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this generation, sinful and adulterous, the Son of man will also be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
