Mark 1
King James Bible: Purple Letter EditionERP 
1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God: 2As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee. 3The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. 4John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a leather belt {girdle of a skin} about his waist {loins}; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; 7And preached, saying, There cometh One mightier than I after me, the latchet of Whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8I, indeed, have baptized you with water, but He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by {of} John in Jordan. 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased.

12And immediately the Spirit driveth Him into the wilderness. 13And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto Him.

14Now after {that} John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent ye, and believe the gospel.

16Now as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. 17And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed Him. 19And when He had gone a little farther, He saw James, the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother, who also were in the boat {ship} mending their nets. 20And straightway He called them; and they left their father, Zebedee, in the boat {ship} with the hired servants, and went after Him.

21And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day He entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22And they were astonished at His doctrine; for He taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. 23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24Saying, Let us alone! What have we to do with Thee, Thou Jesus of Nazareth? Art Thou come to destroy us? I know Thee Who Thou art, the Holy One of God. 25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority commandeth He even the unclean spirits, and they do obey Him. 28And immediately His fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

29And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and straightway {anon} they tell Him of her. 31And He came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. 32And in the {at} evening, when the sun did set, they brought unto Him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with demons {devils}. 33And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34And He healed many that were sick of diverse diseases, and cast out many demons {devils}; and permitted {suffered} not the demons {devils} to speak, because they knew Him.

35And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. 36And Simon and they that were with Him, followed after Him. 37And when they had found Him, they said unto Him, All men seek for Thee. 38And He said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for therefore came I forth. 39And He preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out demons {devils}.

40And there came a leper to Him, beseeching Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying unto Him, If Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean. 41And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth His hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42And as soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 43And He strictly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; 44And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man; but go thy way, show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 45But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to spread {blaze} abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was outside {without} in desert places; and they came to Him from every quarter.
