New International Version

Mark 10

Divorce

1Jesus then left that place and went into the region of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them.

Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”

“What did Moses command you?” he replied.

They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.”

“It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied. “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’[a] ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[b] and the two will become one flesh.’[c] So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. 11 He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.”

The Little Children and Jesus

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

The Rich and the Kingdom of God

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’[d]

20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”

24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is[e] to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”

27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

28 Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!”

29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time

32 They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him. 33 “We are going up to Jerusalem,” he said, “and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.”

The Request of James and John

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. “Teacher,” they said, “we want you to do for us whatever we ask.”

36 “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.

37 They replied, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory.”

38 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said. “Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?”

39 “We can,” they answered.

Jesus said to them, “You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with, 40 but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.”

41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. 42 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”

So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.

The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

马可福音 10

论婚姻

1耶稣离开那里,来到犹太地区和约旦河东岸,人群又聚集到祂那里。耶稣像往常一样教导他们。 一些法利赛人想试探耶稣,就来问祂:“男人可以休妻吗?” 耶稣反问道:“摩西怎么吩咐你们的?”

他们说:“摩西准许人写休书休妻。”

耶稣说:“摩西因为你们心硬,才给你们写了这条诫命。 太初创造时,‘上帝造了男人和女人。’ ‘因此,人要离开父母,与妻子结合, 二人成为一体。’这样,夫妻不再是两个人,而是一体了。 因此,上帝配合的,人不可分开。”

10 回到屋里后,门徒追问耶稣这件事。 11 耶稣说:“任何人休妻另娶,就是对妻子不忠,是犯通奸罪。 12 同样,妻子若离弃丈夫另嫁,也是犯通奸罪。”

祝福孩童

13 有人带着小孩子来要让耶稣摸一摸,门徒却责备他们。 14 耶稣看见后很生气,对门徒说:“让小孩子到我这里来,不要阻止他们,因为上帝的国属于这样的人。 15 我实在告诉你们,人若不像小孩子一样接受上帝的国,绝不能进去。” 16 于是,耶稣抱起小孩子,把手按在他们身上,为他们祝福。

永生的代价

17 耶稣正要上路,有一个人跑来跪在祂跟前,问祂:“良善的老师,我该做什么才能承受永生?”

18 耶稣说:“你为什么称呼我‘良善的老师’呢?只有上帝是良善的。 19 你知道‘不可杀人,不可通奸,不可偷盗,不可作伪证,不可欺诈,要孝敬父母’这些诫命。”

20 那人说:“老师,我从小就遵行这些诫命。”

21 耶稣望着他,心中爱他,便说:“你还有一件事没有做,就是变卖你所有的产业,送给穷人,你必有财宝存在天上,然后你还要来跟从我。”

22 那人听了,脸色骤变,便沮丧地走了,因为他有许多产业。 23 耶稣看看周围的人,对门徒说:“有钱人进上帝的国真难啊!”

24 门徒听了感到惊奇,耶稣便再次对他们说:“孩子们,[a]进上帝的国多么难啊! 25 骆驼穿过针眼比有钱人进上帝的国还容易呢!”

26 门徒更加惊奇,便议论说:“这样,谁能得救呢?”

27 耶稣看着他们说:“对人而言,这不可能,但对上帝而言,凡事都可能。”

28 彼得说:“你看,我们已经撇下一切来跟从你了。”

29 耶稣说:“我实在告诉你们,任何人为了我和福音而撇下房屋、弟兄、姊妹、父母、儿女或田地, 30 今世必在房屋、弟兄、姊妹、父母、儿女或田地方面获得百倍的回报,来世必得永生。当然他也会受到迫害。 31 然而,许多为首的将要殿后,殿后的将要为首。”

耶稣第三次预言自己的受难

32 在前往耶路撒冷的路上,耶稣走在众人前面,门徒感到惊奇,其他跟随的人也很害怕。

耶稣把十二个门徒叫到一旁,再把自己将要遭遇的事告诉他们,说: 33 “听着,我们现在前往耶路撒冷,人子将被交在祭司长和律法教师的手中,他们要判祂死刑,把祂交给外族人。 34 他们会嘲弄祂,向祂吐唾沫,鞭打祂,杀害祂。但是,三天之后祂必复活!”

雅各与约翰的请求

35 西庇太的两个儿子雅各和约翰上前对耶稣说:“老师,请你答应我们一个要求。”

36 耶稣问:“什么要求?”

37 他们说:“在你的荣耀中,求你让我们一个坐在你右边,一个坐在你左边。”

38 耶稣说:“你们不知道自己在求什么。我要喝的那杯,你们能喝吗?我要受的洗,你们能受吗?”

39 他们说:“我们能。”

耶稣说:“我要喝的那杯,你们也要喝;我所受的洗,你们也要受。 40 不过谁坐在我的左右不是我来定,而是为谁预备的,就让谁坐。”

41 其他十个门徒听见这事后,很生雅各和约翰的气。 42 于是,耶稣把他们叫来,对他们说:“你们知道,外族人有君王统治他们,有大臣管理他们, 43 但你们不可这样。你们中间谁要当首领,谁就要做大家的仆人; 44 谁要居首位,谁就要做大家的奴仆。 45 因为就连人子也不是来受人服侍,而是来服侍人,并且牺牲性命,作许多人的赎价。”

治好瞎子巴底买

46 耶稣和门徒来到耶利哥。当耶稣和门徒及众人出城的时候,遇见一个瞎眼的乞丐坐在路旁乞讨,他的名字叫巴底买,是底买的儿子。 47 巴底买一听到经过的是拿撒勒人耶稣,就喊道:“大卫的后裔耶稣啊,可怜我吧!”

48 许多人都责备他,叫他不要吵,但他却更加大声喊道:“大卫的后裔啊,可怜我吧!”

49 耶稣停下脚步,叫人带他过来。

他们就对瞎子巴底买说:“好了,起来吧,祂叫你呢。”

50 巴底买丢下外衣,跳了起来,走到耶稣面前。

51 耶稣问他:“你要我为你做什么?”

瞎子说:“老师,我想能够看见。”

52 耶稣说:“回去吧!你的信心救[b]了你。”那人立刻得见光明,在路上跟从了耶稣。
