Marcos 9

1 AND he said to them, Amen I say to you, There are some who are standing here, who shall not taste death, until they shall have seen the kingdom of Aloha come with power.

2 And after six days Jeshu took Kipha, and Jacub, and Juchanon, and led them up to a high mountain by themselves. And he was altered before their eyes:

3 and his raiment shone, and became exceeding white as the snow; as the sons of man on earth could not make white.

4 And there were seen with them Musha and Elia discoursing with Jeshu.

5 And Kipha said to him, Rabi, it is good for us here to be: and let us make three tabernacles; for thee one, and for Musha one, and for Elia one.

6 But he knew not what he said, for they were in fear.

7 And there was the cloud, and it shadowed over them: and the voice was from the cloud, saying, This is my Son, the Beloved, him hear.

8 And instantly, while the disciples looked, they saw no man, but Jeshu alone with them.

9 And while they were descending from the mountain, he charged them to tell no man what they had seen, until the Son of man should have arisen from the dead.

10 And they held discourse among themselves, and inquired what was this word, when he should have arisen from among the dead.

11 And they asked him, saying, How then say the Sophree that Elia must come before?

12 He said to them, Elia doth come before, to restore all things; and how it is written concerning the Son of man, that much he should suffer, and be rejected.

13 But I tell you, Elia hath also come, and they have done to him whatever they would, as it is written concerning him.

14 AND when he came to his disciples, he saw with them a great crowd, and the Sophree questioning with them.

15 And immediately all the crowd saw him, and wondered, and ran to salute him.

16 And he inquired of the Sophree, What dispute you with them?

17 And one from the company answered and said, Malphona, I had brought my son to thee, because he hath a spirit which speaketh not;

18 and when he seizeth him, he dasheth him, and teareth and grindeth his teeth, and he becometh dry. And I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out, but they could not.

19 Jeshu answered, and said to him, O generation that believeth not! how long shall I be with you? how long shall I tolerate you? bring him to me.

20 And they brought him unto him: and when the spirit saw him, he immediately dashed him, and he fell upon the ground; and was convulsed, and was torn.

21 And Jeshu asked the father, How long is it from the time from which it was thus? He saith to him, Behold, from his childhood.

22 And many times he casteth him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but whatever thou canst, help me, and have mercy upon me.

23 Jeshu saith to him, If thou canst believe, every thing can be to him who believeth.

24 And in a moment the father of the youth cried out, weeping and saying, I am believing; help the defect of my faith.

25 But when Jeshu saw the people running together, and assembling to him, he rebuked the unclean spirit, and said to him, Spirit, deaf and unspeaking! I command thee, come forth from him, and enter not into him again!

26 And that devil cried greatly, and crushed him, and went forth. And he became as the dead; as that many would say, He is dead.

27 But Jeshu took him by the hand, and raised him.

28 But when Jeshu had gone into the house, his disciples inquired of him by themselves, Why could not we cast him out?

29 Jeshu said to them, This kind with nothing can be cast out, but by fasting and prayer.

30 And when he had gone forth from thence, they passed into Galila: and he was not willing that any man should know of him.

31 And he taught his disciples, and told them, That the Son of man would be delivered into the hands of men, and they would kill him; and that when he was slain, on the third day he should arise.

32 But they understood not his word, and feared to ask him.

33 AND they came to Kapher-nachum: and when they had entered the house, he asked them of what they had argued in the way among themselves.

34 But they were silent: for they had contended in the way one with another, who should be greatest among them.

35 And Jeshu sat, and he called the twelve, and said to them, Whoever wills to be the first, shall be the last of all, and the servant of all.

36 And he took a certain child, and made him stand in the midst: and he took him upon his arms, and said to them,

37 Every one who receiveth (one who is) as this child in my name, me he receiveth: and whoever me receiveth, not me he receiveth, but Him who sent me.

38 Juchanon said to him, Rabi, we saw a man casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he did not adhere to us.

39 Jeshu saith to them, Forbid him not; for no man who doeth powerful works in my name, can soon speak of me that which is evil.

40 He therefore who is not against you is for you.

41 For every one who shall give you only a cup of waters to drink in the name that you are of the Meshicha, Amen I say to you, He shall not lose his reward.

42 And every one who shall offend one of these little ones who believe in me, it had been better for him that an ass-millstone had been set to his neck, and he had been cast forth into the sea.

43 But if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: better for thee mutilated to go into life, than having two hands to go into gihana;

44 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not quenched.

45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: better for thee to go into life lame, than having two feet to fall into gihana:

46 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not quenched.

47 And if thine eye offend thee, root it out: better for thee that with one eye thou enter the kingdom of Aloha, than having two eyes to fall into the gihana of fire:

48 where their worm dieth not, and their fire is not quenched.

49 For every (thing) with fire is salted, and every victim with salt shall be salted.

50 Good is salt: but if the salt shall (become) insipid, how shall it be salted? Let there be in you salt, and in peace be one with another.
