          DASV: Mark 1    

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

2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, "Look, I send my
messenger before your face, who will prepare your way.
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make ready
the way of the Lord. Make his paths straight.'"
4 John came, baptizing in the wilderness and preaching
the baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
5 Now all the region of Judea, and all those of Jerusalem
went out to him. They were baptized by him in the Jordan
River, confessing their sins.
6 John was clothed with a camel's hair garment, and had
a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild
7 He preached, saying, "There comes one after me who is
mightier than I, the strap of his sandal I am not worthy
to stoop down and untie.
8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with
the Holy Spirit."

9 Now it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from
Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized by John in the
Jordan River.
10 While Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw the
heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending upon him
like a dove.
11 A voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son,
I am well pleased with you."

12 Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness.
13 He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan.
He was with the wild animals, and angels ministered to him.
14 Now after John was imprisoned, Jesus came into Galilee,
preaching the gospel of God,
15 saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is
near. Repent and believe in the gospel."

16 Passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and
Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net into the sea,
for they were fishermen.
17 Jesus said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you
fishers of men."
18 Immediately they left their nets, and followed him.
19 Going on a little further, he saw James the son of
Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat mending
their nets.
20 Immediately he called them, and they left their father
Zebedee in the boat with the hired hands, and followed him.
21 They went to Capernaum. Immediately on the Sabbath
he entered into the synagogue and taught.
22 They were astonished at his teaching, because he taught
them as one having authority, and not like the scribes.

23 Now there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean
spirit, and he cried out,
24 "What have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Are you
come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God."
25 Then Jesus rebuked him, "Be quiet, and come out of him."
26 The unclean spirit, after tearing him and crying with
a loud voice, came out of him.
27 They were all amazed, so they asked each other, "What is
this?--a new teaching with authority. He commands even
the unclean spirits, and they obey him."
28 The report of him quickly spread everywhere into all the
region of Galilee.

29 As soon as they came out of the synagogue, they went
to the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 Now Simon's mother-in-law lay sick of a fever,
and immediately they told him about her.
31 He came and took her by the hand, and raised her up.
The fever left her, and she served them.
32 During the evening, after sunset, they brought to him
all that were sick, and those who were possessed with
33 All the city was gathered together at the door.
34 He healed many that were sick with various diseases,
and cast out many demons. He did not allow the demons
to speak, because they knew him.

35 He got up early in the morning, before dawn. He left,
and departed into a deserted place, and there prayed.
36 Simon and those who were with him searched for him.
37 When they found him, they said to him, "Everyone is
looking for you."
38 He replied, "Let us move on to the next towns, that
I may preach there too, for this is the reason I came."
39 Then he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in
their synagogues and casting out demons.

40 Now a leper came to him, begging him, and kneeling
down before him, saying to him, "If you will, you can
make me clean."
41 Being moved with compassion, he stretched out his
hand, and touched him, and said to him, "I will, be clean."
42 Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.
43 Then he sternly warned him, and quickly sent him out.
44 He said to him, "See that you do not say anything to
anyone, but go show yourself to the priest, and offer
for your cleansing the things that Moses commanded,
for a testimony to them."
45 But he went out, and began to publicize it, and to
spread the story around, so that Jesus could not openly
enter into a city, but stayed out in deserted places.
Yet they came to him from everywhere.
