The Feast of Passover – Mark 14

Mark 14:1 After two days was the feast of the passover, and  of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes  sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to  death.

Mark 14:2 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest  there be an uproar of the people.  

Mark 14:3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the  leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an  alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and  she brake the box, and poured it on his head. 

Mark 14:4 And  there were some that had indignation within themselves,  and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? 

Mark 14:5  For it might have been sold for more than three hundred  pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured  against her. 

Mark 14:6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why  trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.  

Mark 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and  when soever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have  not always. 

Mark 14:8 She hath done what she could: she is  come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. 

Mark 14:9  Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be  preached throughout the whole world, this also that she  hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.  

Mark 14:10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto  the chief priests, to betray him unto them. 


Gospel of Mark


Mark 14:11 And  when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give  him money. And he sought how he might conveniently  betray him.  

Mark 14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they  killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt  thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the  passover? 

Mark 14:13 And he sendeth forth two of his  disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there  shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.  

Mark 14:14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the  goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the  guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my  disciples? 

Mark 14:15 And he will shew you a large upper  room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.  

Mark 14:16 And his disciples went forth, and came into the  city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made  ready the passover. 

Mark 14:17 And in the evening he cometh  with the twelve. 

Mark 14:18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus  said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with  me shall betray me. 

Mark 14:19 And they began to be  sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and  another said, Is it I? 

Mark 14:20 And he answered and said  unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in  the dish. 

Mark 14:21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is  written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of  man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never  been born.  

Mark 14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and  blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take,  eat: this is my body. 

Mark 14:23 And he took the cup, and  when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all  drank of it. 

Mark 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my  blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.   

Mark 14:25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the  fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the  kingdom of God.  

Mark 14:26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out  into the mount of Olives. 

Mark 14:27 And Jesus saith unto  them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for  it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be  scattered. 

Mark 14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go before  you into Galilee. 

Mark 14:29 But Peter said unto him, Although  all shall be offended, yet will not I. 

Mark 14:30 And Jesus  saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even  in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me  thrice. 

Mark 14:31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I  should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise.  Likewise also said they all. 

Mark 14:32 And they came to a  place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his  disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray. 

Mark 14:33 And he  taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be  sore amazed, and to be very heavy; 

Mark 14:34 And saith unto  them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye  here, and watch. 

Mark 14:35 And he went forward a little, and  fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the  hour might pass from him. 

Mark 14:36 And he said, Abba,  Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this  cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou  wilt. 

Mark 14:37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping,  and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not  thou watch one hour? 

Mark 14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye  enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the  flesh is weak. 

Mark 14:39 And again he went away, and  prayed, and spake the same words. 

Mark 14:40 And when he  returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were  heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him. 

Mark 14:41 And  he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on  now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come;  behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.  

Mark 14:42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at  hand.  

Mark 14:43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh  Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude  with swords and staves, from the chief priest and the scribes  and the elders. 

Mark 14:44 And he that betrayed him had given  them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is  he; take him, and lead him away safely. 

Mark 14:45 And as  soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and  saith, Master, master; and kissed him.  

Mark 14:46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.  

Mark 14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and  smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.  

Mark 14:48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye  come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves  to take me? 

Mark 14:49 I was daily with you in the temple  teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be  fulfilled. 

Mark 14:50 And they all forsook him, and fled.  

Mark 14:51 And there followed him a certain young man,  having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the  young men laid hold on him: 

Mark 14:52 And he left the linen  cloth, and fled from them naked.  

Mark 14:53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and  with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders  and the scribes. 

Mark 14:54 And Peter followed him afar off,  even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the  servants, and warmed himself at the fire. 

Mark 14:55 And the  chief priests and all the council sought for witness against  Jesus to put him to death; and found none. 

Mark 14:56 For  many bare false witness against him, but their witness  agreed not together. 

Mark 14:57 And there arose certain, and  bare false witness against him, saying, 

Mark 14:58 We heard  him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands,  and within three days I will build another made without  hands. 

Mark 14:59 But neither so did their witness agree  together. 

Mark 14:60 And the high priest stood up in the midst,  and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it  which these witness against thee? 

Mark 14:61 But he held his  peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked  him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the  Blessed? 

Mark 14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the  Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming  in the clouds of heaven. 

Mark 14:63 Then the high priest rent  his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?   

Mark 14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And  they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 

Mark 14:65 And  some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to  buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants  did strike him with the palms of their hands.  

Mark 14:66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there  cometh one of the maids of the high priest: 

Mark 14:67 And  when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him,  and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.  

Mark 14:68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither  understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the  porch; and the cock crew. 

Mark 14:69 And a maid saw him  again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one  of them. 

Mark 14:70 And he denied it again. And a little after,  they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one  of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth  thereto. 

Mark 14:71 But he began to curse and to swear,  saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. 

Mark 14:72  And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to  mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock  crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought  thereon, he wept.
