New International Version

Mark 10


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.

馬可福音 10


1耶穌離開那裡,來到猶太地區和約旦河河東岸,人群又聚集到祂那裡。耶穌像往常一樣教導他們。 一些法利賽人想試探耶穌,就來問祂:「男人可以休妻嗎?」 耶穌反問道:「摩西怎麼吩咐你們的?」


耶穌說:「摩西因為你們心硬,才給你們寫了這條誡命。 太初創造時,『上帝造了男人和女人。』 『因此,人要離開父母,與妻子結合, 二人成為一體。』這樣,夫妻不再是兩個人,而是一體了。 因此,上帝配合的,人不可分開。」

10 回到屋裡後,門徒追問耶穌這件事。 11 耶穌說:「任何人休妻另娶,就是對妻子不忠,是犯通姦罪。 12 同樣,妻子若離棄丈夫另嫁,也是犯通姦罪。」


13 有人帶著小孩子來要讓耶穌摸一摸,門徒卻責備他們。 14 耶穌看見後很生氣,對門徒說:「讓小孩子到我這裡來,不要阻止他們,因為上帝的國屬於這樣的人。 15 我實在告訴你們,人若不像小孩子一樣接受上帝的國,絕不能進去。」 16 於是,耶穌抱起小孩子,把手按在他們身上,為他們祝福。


17 耶穌正要上路,有一個人跑來跪在祂跟前,問祂:「良善的老師,我該做什麼才能承受永生?」

18 耶穌說:「你為什麼稱呼我『良善的老師』呢?只有上帝是良善的。 19 你知道『不可殺人,不可通姦,不可偷盜,不可作偽證,不可欺詐,要孝敬父母』這些誡命。」

20 那人說:「老師,我從小就遵行這些誡命。」

21 耶穌望著他,心中愛他,便說:「你還有一件事沒有做,就是變賣你所有的產業,送給窮人,你必有財寶存在天上,然後你還要來跟從我。」

22 那人聽了,臉色驟變,便沮喪地走了,因為他有許多產業。 23 耶穌看看周圍的人,對門徒說:「有錢人進上帝的國真難啊!」

24 門徒聽了感到驚奇,耶穌便再次對他們說:「孩子們,[a]進上帝的國多麼難啊! 25 駱駝穿過針眼比有錢人進上帝的國還容易呢!」

26 門徒更加驚奇,便議論說:「這樣,誰能得救呢?」

27 耶穌看著他們說:「對人而言,這不可能,但對上帝而言,凡事都可能。」

28 彼得說:「你看,我們已經撇下一切來跟從你了。」

29 耶穌說:「我實在告訴你們,任何人為了我和福音而撇下房屋、弟兄、姊妹、父母、兒女或田地, 30 今世必在房屋、弟兄、姊妹、父母、兒女或田地方面獲得百倍的回報,來世必得永生。當然他也會受到迫害。 31 然而,許多為首的將要殿後,殿後的將要為首。」


32 在前往耶路撒冷的路上,耶穌走在眾人前面,門徒感到驚奇,其他跟隨的人也很害怕。

耶穌把十二個門徒叫到一旁,再把自己將要遭遇的事告訴他們,說: 33 「聽著,我們現在前往耶路撒冷。人子將被交在祭司長和律法教師的手中,他們要判祂死刑,把祂交給外族人。 34 他們會嘲弄祂,向祂吐唾沫,鞭打祂,殺害祂。但是,三天之後祂必復活!」


35 西庇太的兩個兒子雅各和約翰上前對耶穌說:「老師,請你答應我們一個要求。」

36 耶穌問:「什麼要求?」

37 他們說:「在你的榮耀中,求你讓我們一個坐在你右邊,一個坐在你左邊。」

38 耶穌說:「你們不知道自己在求什麼。我要喝的那杯,你們能喝嗎?我要受的洗,你們能受嗎?」

39 他們說:「我們能。」

耶穌說:「我要喝的那杯,你們也要喝;我所受的洗,你們也要受。 40 不過誰坐在我的左右不是我來定,而是為誰預備的,就讓誰坐。」

41 其他十個門徒聽見這事後,很生雅各和約翰的氣。 42 於是,耶穌把他們叫來,對他們說:「你們知道,外族人有君王統治他們,有大臣管理他們, 43 但你們不可這樣。你們中間誰要當首領,誰就要做大家的僕人; 44 誰要居首位,誰就要做大家的奴僕。 45 因為就連人子也不是來受人服侍,而是來服侍人,並且犧牲性命,作許多人的贖價。」


46 耶穌和門徒來到耶利哥。當耶穌和門徒及眾人出城的時候,碰到一個瞎眼的乞丐坐在路旁乞討,他的名字叫巴底買,是底買的兒子。 47 巴底買一聽到經過的是拿撒勒人耶穌,就喊道:「大衛的後裔耶穌啊,可憐我吧!」

48 許多人都責備他,叫他不要吵,但他卻更加大聲喊道:「大衛的後裔啊,可憐我吧!」

49 耶穌停下腳步,叫人帶他過來。


50 巴底買丟下外衣,跳了起來,走到耶穌面前。

51 耶穌問他:「你要我為你做什麼?」


52 耶穌說:「回去吧!你的信心救[b]了你。」那人立刻得見光明,在路上跟從了耶穌。
