What shall a man Give in Exchange for his Soul - Mark 8

Mark 8:1 In those days the multitude being very great, and  having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him,  and saith unto them

Mark 8:2 I have compassion on the  multitude, because they have now been with me three days,  and have nothing to eat: 

Mark 8:3 And if I send them away  fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for  divers of them came from far.

Mark 8:4 And his disciples  answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men  with bread here in the wilderness? 

Mark 8:5 And he asked  them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.  

Mark 8:6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the  ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and  brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and  they did set them before the people. 

Mark 8:7 And they had a  few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set  them also before them. 

Mark 8:8 So they did eat, and were  filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left  seven baskets. 

Mark 8:9 And they that had eaten were about  four thousand: and he sent them away. 

Mark 8:10 And  straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and  came into the parts of Dalmanutha. 

Gospel of Mark

Mark 8:11 And the  Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him,  seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 

Mark 8:12  And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this  generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There  shall no sign be given unto this generation. 

Mark 8:13 And he  left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the  other side.  

Mark 8:14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread,  neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.  

Mark 8:15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of  the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.  

Mark 8:16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is  because we have no bread. 

Mark 8:17 And when Jesus knew  it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no  bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye  your heart yet hardened? 

Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not?  and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?  

Mark 8:19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand,  how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say  unto him, Twelve. 

Mark 8:20 And when the seven among four  thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up?  And they said, Seven. 

Mark 8:21 And he said unto them, How  is it that ye do not understand?  

Mark 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a  blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. 

Mark 8:23  And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of  the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his  hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. 

Mark 8:24 And  he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. 

Mark 8:25  After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made    

Mark Page 584   him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man  clearly. 

Mark 8:26 And he sent him away to his house, saying,  Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.   

Mark 8:27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the  towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his  disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?  

Mark 8:28 And they answered, John the Baptist: but some  say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets. 

Mark 8:29 And he  saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter  answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 

Mark 8:30  And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.  

Mark 8:31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man  must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and  of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after  three days rise again. 

Mark 8:32 And he spake that saying  openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.  

Mark 8:33 But when he had turned about and looked on his  disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me,  Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but  the things that be of men.  

Mark 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him  with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will  come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross,  and follow me. 

Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall  lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the  gospel’s, the same shall save it. 

Mark 8:36 For what shall it  profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his  own soul? 

Mark 8:37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for  his soul? 

Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of  me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful  generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed,  when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy  angels.
