The Holy Bible Reading[Mark 9:33-10:12]

If the Salt Becomes Unsalty, with What Will You Restore Its Saltiness?

Let's Pray:

O Lord Jesus, feed us and give us to drink. Satisfy our hunger and quench our thirst. Touch the deepest part of our being. Lord, we desire to be immersed in You. Amen.

Mark 9:33-10:12

9:33 And they came to Capernaum. And when He was in the house, He questioned them, What were you reasoning about on the way?

9:34 the way about who was greater.

9:35 And He sat down and called the twelve and said to them, If anyone wants to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.

9:36 And He took a little child and set him in their midst; and taking him into His arms, He said to them,

9:37 Whoever receives one of such little children because of My name, receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me.

9:38 John said to Him, Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.

9:39 But Jesus said, Do not forbid him, for there is no one who will do a work of power in My name and be able soon to speak evil of Me.

9:40 For he who is not against us is for us.

9:41 For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name that you are Christ's, truly I say to you that he shall by no means lose his reward.

9:42 And whoever stumbles one of these little ones who believe into Me, it is better for him if a great millstone is placed around his neck and he is thrown into the sea.

9:43 And if your hand stumbles you, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life maimed than to have two hands and go away into Gehenna, into unquenchable fire.

9:44 See note 44.

9:45 And if your foot stumbles you, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life lame than to have two feet and be thrown into Gehenna.

9:46 See note 46.

9:47 And if your eye stumbles you, cast it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into Gehenna,

9:48 Where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.

9:49 For everyone shall be salted with fire.

9:50 Salt is good, but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you restore its saltiness? Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with one another.

10:1 And He rose up from there and came into the borders of Judea and beyond the Jordan; and again crowds came together to Him, and as He was accustomed, again He taught them.

10:2 And some Pharisees came and asked Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce a wife, so as to tempt Him.

10:3 And He answered and said to them, What did Moses command you?

10:4 And they said, Moses allowed us to write a certificate of divorce and divorce her.

10:5 And Jesus said to them, Because of your hardness of heart he wrote this commandment for you.

10:6 But from the beginning of creation, He made them male and female.

10:7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife;

10:8 And the two shall be one flesh. So then they are no longer two, but one flesh.

10:9 Therefore what God has yoked together, let man not separate.

10:10 And in the house the disciples questioned Him again concerning this.

10:11 And He said to them, Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her.

10:12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.

Footnotes:
     The application of the word here differs from that in Matt. 5:13 and Luke 14:34. In Matthew and Luke, salt, portraying the believers' (influence) on the world, is for the salting of the (corrupted) world; salt here, in apposition to the purging (fire), is for the salting of sinning (believers), even as God's (chastisements) are for the sinning believers in this age. (See Mark 9:50 note 1)
