MARK 9

37 JOHN ANSWERED HIM, SAYING: MASTER, WE SAW ONE CASTING OUT DEVILS IN THY NAME, WHO FOLLOWETH NOT US, AND WE FORBADE HIM.

38 BUT JESUS SAID: DO NOT FORBID HIM. FOR THERE IS NO MAN THAT DOTH A MIRACLE IN MY NAME, AND CAN SOON SPEAK ILL OF ME.

39 FOR HE THAT IS NOT AGAINST YOU, IS FOR YOU.

40 FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL GIVE YOU TO DRINK A CUP OF WATER IN MY NAME, BECAUSE YOU BELONG TO CHRIST: AMEN I SAY TO YOU, HE SHALL NOT LOSE HIS REWARD.

41 AND WHOSOEVER SHALL SCANDALIZE ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES THAT BELIEVE IN ME; IT WERE BETTER FOR HIM THAT A MILLSTONE WERE HANGED AROUND HIS NECK, AND HE WERE CAST INTO THE SEA.

42 AND IF THY HAND SCANDALIZE THEE, CUT IT OFF: IT IS BETTER FOR THEE TO ENTER INTO LIFE, MAIMED, THAN HAVING TWO HANDS TO GO INTO HELL, INTO UNQUENCHABLE FIRE:

43 WHERE THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT EXTINGUISHED.

44 AND IF THY FOOT SCANDALIZE THEE, CUT IT OFF. IT IS BETTER FOR THEE TO ENTER LAME INTO LIFE EVERLASTING, THAN HAVING TWO FEET, TO BE CAST INTO THE HELL OF UNQUENCHABLE FIRE:

45 WHERE THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT EXTINGUISHED.

46 AND IF THY EYE SCANDALIZE THEE, PLUCK IT OUT. IT IS BETTER FOR THEE WITH ONE EYE TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, THAN HAVING TWO EYES TO BE CAST INTO THE HELL OF FIRE:

47 WHERE THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT EXTINGUISHED.

 

LISTEN TO THE GOSPEL AND HOMILY
