Mark 1

Preaching of John the Baptist

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

As it is written in Isaiah the prophet:

Behold, I send My messenger [a]ahead of You,
Who will prepare Your way;
The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Make ready the way of the Lord,
Make His paths straight.’”

John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness [b]preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea was going out to him, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins. John was clothed with camel’s hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and [c]his diet was locusts and wild honey. And he was [d]preaching, and saying, “After me One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to stoop down and untie the thong of His sandals. I baptized you [e]with water; but He will baptize you [f]with the Holy Spirit.”

The Baptism of Jesus

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens [g]opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”

12 Immediately the Spirit *impelled Him to go out into the wilderness. 13 And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him.

Jesus Preaches in Galilee

14 Now after John had been [h]taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, [i]preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God [j]is at hand; repent and [k]believe in the gospel.”

16 As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” 18 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 19 Going on a little farther, He saw [l]James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets. 20 Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away [m]to follow Him.

21 They *went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach. 22 They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 23 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 saying, “What [n]business do we have with each other, Jesus [o]of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” 26 Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. 27 They were all amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” 28 Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere into all the surrounding district of Galilee.

Crowds Healed

29 And immediately after they came out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with [p]James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever; and immediately they *spoke to [q]Jesus about her. 31 And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her, and she [r]waited on them.

32 When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all who were ill and those who were demon-possessed. 33 And the whole city had gathered at the door. 34 And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.

35 In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. 36 Simon and his companions searched for Him; 37 they found Him, and *said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.” 38 He *said to them, “Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby, so that I may [s]preach there also; for that is what I came for.” 39 And He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, [t]preaching and casting out the demons.

40 And a leper *came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” 41 Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and *said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed. 43 And He sternly warned him and immediately sent him away, 44 and He *said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” 45 But he went out and began to proclaim it freely and to spread the news around, to such an extent that [u]Jesus could no longer publicly enter a city, but [v]stayed out in unpopulated areas; and they were coming to Him from everywhere.

Marko 1

Mahubiri Ya Yohana Mbatizaji

1Huu ni mwanzo wa Habari Njema ya Yesu Kristo, Mwana wa Mungu. Kama alivyoandika nabii Isaya, Mungu alisema: “Namtuma mjumbe wangu akutangulie, ambaye ataandaa njia yako.” “Mtu aitaye kwa sauti kuu jangwani. ‘Mtengenezeeni Bwana njia; nyoosheni sehemu zote atakazopitia.’ ”

Yohana alitokea nyikani, akawabatiza watu huko na kuwahubi ria kwamba watubu, wabatizwe, ili wasamehewe dhambi zao. Watu kutoka eneo lote la Yudea na sehemu zote za Yerusalemu walikwenda kumsikiliza. Wakatubu dhambi zao, akawabatiza katika mto wa Yor dani. Yohana alivaa mavazi ya manyoya ya ngamia na mkanda wa ngozi kiunoni mwake. Chakula chake kilikuwa ni nzige na asali ya mwituni. Naye alihubiri akisema, “Baada yangu anakuja mwenye uwezo kunizidi, ambaye sistahili hata kuinama na kulegeza kamba za viatu vyake. Mimi nawabatiza kwa maji, lakini yeye atawaba tiza kwa Roho Mtakatifu.”

Yesu Abatizwa

Baadaye Yesu akaja kutoka Nazareti katika sehemu ya Gali laya, akabatizwa na Yohana katika mto wa Yordani. 10 Yesu alipo toka kwenye maji aliona mbingu zikifunuka na Roho wa Mungu anam shukia kama njiwa. 11 Na sauti kutoka mbinguni ikasema, “Wewe ni mwanangu mpendwa; nimependezwa nawe.”

Yesu Ajaribiwa Nyikani

12 Mara tu baada ya haya, Roho akamwongoza Yesu mpaka nyikani. 13 Akakaa huko nyikani kwa muda wa siku arobaini aki jaribiwa na shetani. Alikaa na wanyama wa porini na malaika wal imhudumia.

Yesu Aanza Kuhubiri

14 Yohana mbatizaji alipokamatwa na kutiwa gerezani, Yesu alikwenda Galilaya akaanza kutangaza Habari Njema za Mungu, 15 akisema, “Wakati umefika: Ufalme wa Mungu umewasili. Tubuni, muamini Habari Njema.”

Yesu Awaita Wanafunzi Wanne

16 Yesu alipokuwa akitembea kando kando ya Ziwa la Galilaya alimwona Simoni na Andrea ndugu yake wakivua samaki kwa kutumia nyavu; ndugu hawa wawili walikuwa wavuvi. 17 Yesu akawaambia, “Nifuateni, nami nitawafanya kuwa wavuvi wa watu.” 18 Wakaacha nyavu zao mara moja wakamfuata Yesu.

19 Alipokwenda mbele kidogo, akawaona Yakobo na Yohana, wana wa Zebedayo. Wao walikuwa katika mashua wakitengeneza nyavu zao. 20 Mara tu alipowaona akawaita, nao wakamwacha baba yao na wavuvi wa kuajiriwa, wakamfuata Yesu.

Yesu Afukuza Pepo Mchafu

21 Wakaenda mpaka Kapernaumu. Ilipofika siku ya sabato, Yesu akaenda katika sinagogi akaanza kufundisha. 22 Watu waliom sikiliza, walishangazwa sana na mafundisho yake. Yeye hakufund isha kama walimu wao wa sheria. Alifundisha kama mtu mwenye mam laka.

23 Wakati huo huo, mtu mmoja aliyekuwa na pepo 24 akapiga kelele humo katika sinagogi akasema, “Mbona unatuingilia, Yesu wa Nazareti? Umekuja kutuangamiza? Ninafahamu wewe ni nani! Wewe ni Mtakatifu wa Mungu.” 25 Lakini Yesu akamkemea akamwambia, “Kaa kimya! Mtoke!” 26 Yule pepo mchafu akamtikisa yule mtu kwa nguvu kisha akamtoka akipiga kelele.

27 Watu wakashangaa, wakaanza kuulizana, “Haya ni mambo gani? Ni mafundisho mapya? Huyu mtu anatoa amri kwa mamlaka na hata pepo wanamtii!”

28 Sifa zake zikaenea upesi kila mahali katika mkoa wote wa

Yesu Amponya Mama Mkwe Wa Simoni

29 Yesu na wanafunzi wake walipoondoka katika sinagogi, walikwenda moja kwa moja hadi nyumbani kwa Simoni na Andrea. Wanafunzi wengine waliokuwepo ni Yakobo na Yohana. 30 Mama mkwe wake Simoni alikuwa kitandani, ana homa. Na mara Yesu alipofika wakamweleza. 31 Yesu akaenda karibu na kitanda, akamshika yule mama mkono, akamwinua; homa ikamtoka, akawahudumia.

Yesu Aponya Wengi

32 Jioni ile, baada ya jua kutua, watu wakawaleta wagonjwa wote na wengine waliopagawa na pepo kwa Yesu. 33 Watu wote wa mji huo wakakusanyika mbele ya nyumba hiyo. 34 Yesu akawaponya watu wengi waliokuwa na magonjwa ya kila aina. Akawatoa pepo wengi; lakini hakuwaruhusu pepo hao wazungumze, kwa sababu wal ifahamu yeye ni nani.

Yesu Aondoka Kapernaumu Na Kwenda Galilaya

35 Kesho yake alfajiri, kabla hapajapambazuka, Yesu akaamka akaenda mahali pa faragha, akaomba. 36 Simoni na wenzake wakaenda kumtafuta. 37 Walipomwona wakamwambia, “Kila mtu ana kutafuta!”

38 Yesu akawajibu, “Twendeni kwenye vijiji vingine vya jirani nikahubiri huko pia; kwa sababu hicho ndicho kilicho nileta.” 39 Kwa hiyo akazunguka Galilaya nzima akihubiri katika masinagogi na kuponya watu waliopagawa na pepo.

Yesu Amponya Mtu Mwenye Ukoma

40 Akaja mtu mwenye ukoma, akapiga magoti mbele ya Yesu akamsihi, “Ukitaka, unaweza kunitakasa.” 41 Yesu akamwonea huruma, akanyoosha mkono wake akamgusa, akamwambia, “Nataka upone, takasika.” 42 Mara ukoma wote ukaisha akapona kabisa. 43 Yesu akamruhusu aende lakini 44 akamwonya, “Usimwambie mtu ye yote habari hizi; bali nenda ukajionyeshe kwa kuhani, na utoe sadaka ya utakaso kama alivyoamuru Musa, iwe ushuhuda kwa watu.”

45 Lakini yule mtu alikwenda akatangaza habari za kuponywa kwake kila mahali. Kwa hiyo Yesu hakuweza tena kuingia katika vijiji na miji waziwazi isipokuwa alikaa sehemu zisizo na watu, nao wakamfuata huko kutoka pande zote.
