Mark 1
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1The beginning of the gospel (evangeliou-evangel, latin-evangelii-gospel, good/well report/announcing) of Jesus Christ, Son of God.

2Just as it has been written in Isaiah the prophet, Behold, I send My messenger (greek-angelon, latin-angelum) before (to) Your face, who will prepare Your way.

3The voice of one crying out in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight His paths.

4John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for (unto) remission of sins. 5And all of the Judea region and all they of Jerusalem went out to him and were baptized by him in the Jordan river (potamo), fully confessing their sins. 6And John was clothed in hair of a camel and a leather belt around his waist; and he was eating locusts and wild honey. 7And he preached, saying, After me comes He who is mightier (stronger, abler) than I, of whom I am not fit (sufficient, adequate) to stoop down and untie the strap of His sandals. 8I baptized you [with, in] water; and He will baptize you in (with) the Holy Spirit.

9And it happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized into the Jordan by John. 10And directly going up from out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting asunder and the Spirit like as a dove descending unto Him. 11And a voice came from out of the heavens, You are My Beloved Son, in You I am well pleased.

12And directly the Spirit drives Him out into the wilderness. 13And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted (tested) by Satan and was with the wild animals; and the angels ministered (diekonoun) to Him.

14And after the handing over of John, Jesus came into Galilee preaching the gospel of God, 15And saying, The time has been fulfilled and the kingdom of God has drawn near; repent, and believe in the gospel.

16And passing by beside the sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17And Jesus said to them, Come after Me and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18And directly, having left the nets, they followed Him. 19And having gone on a little, He saw James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, and these were in the boat mending (adjusting, fitting together, preparing) the nets. 20And directly He called them; and having left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, they went away after Him.

21And they go into Capernaum; and directly on the Sabbath He having entered into the synagogue, taught. 22And they were astounded at (upon) His teaching; for He was teaching them as having authority and not as the scribes. 23And directly there was in their synagogue a man with (in) an unclean spirit, and he cried out, 24Saying, What to us and to You, Jesus of Nazareth? Are You come to destroy us? I know You who You are, the Holy [One] of God! 25And Jesus censured him, saying, Be put to silence (muzzled) and come out of him! 26And the unclean spirit having thrown him into convulsions and having called out with a great voice, came out of him. 27And all were astonished, so as to seek together among themselves, saying, What is this? A new teaching according to authority. He commands (gives order upon) even the unclean spirits and they comply under Him! 28And a hearing (report) of Him went out directly everywhere into all the surrounding region of Galilee.

29And directly having gone out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. 30And the mother-in-law of Simon was lying down sick fevering. And directly they speak to Him about her. 31And having come to her, He raised her up, having taken of the hand. And the fever left her and she ministered to (served) them.

32And evening having come, when the sun went down, they brought to Him all those having badly (sore misery, kakos) and those demonized. 33And all the city was gathered together to the door. 34And He healed (etherapeusen) many having badly (kakos) of various diseases (chronic sicknesses), and He cast out many demons. And He did not permit the demons to speak because they knew Him {to be Christ}.

35And having risen up very early, still much in night, He went out and departed into a solitary (desolate) place and there was praying. 36And Simon and those with Him pursued after Him; 37And having found Him, also they say to Him, Everyone seeks You! 38And He says to them, Let us go another way into the neighboring towns (large villages), so that also there I might preach; for unto this I have come out. 39And He was going, preaching in their synagogues in the whole of Galilees and casting out demons.

40And a leper comes to Him, entreating Him and falling down on his knees to Him, and saying to Him, If You are willing, You are able to cleanse me. 41And having been moved with compassion (visceral affections like sympathy, etc.), having stretched out His hand, He touched him, and says to him, I will, be you cleansed. 42And directly the leprosy departed away from him and he was cleansed. 43And having sternly admonished him, He directly sent him out, 44And says to him, See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer concerning your cleansing what Moses commanded unto a testimony to them. 45And having gone out, he began to proclaim much and to spread the word abroad, so that he was no longer able to openly enter into the city; but was outside upon solitary places and they came to him from all sides.
