Mark 12


12:1 And he began to speak to them by parables. A [certain] man
 planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about [it], and digged [a
 place for] the wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to
 husbandmen, and went into a far country.
12:2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that
 he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the
 vineyard.
12:3 And they caught [him], and beat him and sent [him] away
 empty.
12:4 And again, he sent to them another servant: and at him they
 cast stones, and wounded [him] in the head, and sent [him] away
 shamefully handled.
12:5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many
 others; beating some, and killing some.
12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his well-beloved, he sent him
 also last to them, saying, They will reverence my son.
12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the
 heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.
12:8 And they took him, and killed [him], and cast [him] out of
 the vineyard.
12:9 What therefore will the Lord of the vineyard do? he will
 come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to
 others.
12:10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the
 builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
12:11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our
 eyes?
12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people;
 for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and
 they left him, and departed.
12:13 And they sent to him certain of the Pharisees, and of the
 Herodians, to catch him in [his] words.
12:14 And when they had come, they say to him, Master, we know
 that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest
 not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is
 it lawful to give tribute to Cesar, or not?
12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their
 hypocrisy, said to them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny,
 that I may see [it].
12:16 And they brought [it]: and he saith to them, Whose [is]
 this image and superscription? And they said to him, Cesar's.
12:17 And Jesus answering, said to them, Render to Cesar the
 things that are Cesar's, and to God the things that are God's.
 And they wondered at him.
12:18 Then come to him the Sadducees, who say there is no
 resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
12:19 Master, Moses wrote to us, If a man's brother shall die,
 and leave [his] wife, and leave no children, that his brother
 should take his wife, and raise seed to his brother.
12:20 Now there were seven brothers: and the first took a wife,
 and dying left no seed.
12:21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any
 seed: and the third likewise.
12:22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the
 woman died also.
12:23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose
 wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her for a wife.
12:24 And Jesus answering, said to them, Do ye not therefore
 err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of
 God?
12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither
 marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels who are
 in heaven.
12:26 And concerning the dead that they rise; have ye not read
 in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke to him, saying,
 I [am] the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of
 Jacob?
12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living:
 ye therefore do greatly err.
12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them
 reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them
 well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments
 [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord.
12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
 and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy
 strength: this [is] the first commandment.
12:31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love
 thy neighbor as thyself: there is no other commandment greater
 than these.
12:32 And the scribe said to him, Well, Master, thou hast said
 the truth: for there is one God; and there is no other but he.
12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the
 understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the
 strength, and to love [his] neighbor as himself, is more than
 all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.
12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said to
 him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after
 that durst ask him any question.
12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the
 temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?
12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Spirit, The LORD said
 to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thy enemies
 thy footstool.
12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord, and whence is he
 [then] his son? and the common people heard him gladly.
12:38 And he said to them in his doctrine, Beware of the
 scribes, who love to go in long clothing, and [love]
 salutations in the market-places,
12:39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost
 rooms at feasts:
12:40 Who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long
 prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how
 the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were
 rich cast in much.
12:42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two
 mites, which make a farthing.
12:43 And he called his disciples, and saith to them, Verily I
 say to you, that this poor widow hath cast in more, than all
 they who have cast into the treasury.
12:44 For all [they] cast in of their abundance: but she of her
 want cast in all that she had, [even] all her living.
