Mark 9:38Mark 9:50

22. Teaching concerning Tolerance for Unity

38 aJohn said to Him, Teacher, we saw someone bcasting out demons in Your cname, and we 1forbade him because he does not follow us.

39 But Jesus said, Do 1not forbid him, for there is ano one who will do a work of power in My name and be able soon to speak evil of Me.

40 For 1he who is not against us is for us.

41 For whoever gives 1you a acup of water to drink because you bear the name that you are 2bChrist's, truly I say to you that he shall by no means lose his 3reward.

42 And whoever stumbles one of 1these alittle ones who believe into Me, it is better for him if a 2great millstone is placed around his neck and he is thrown into the sea.

43 And if your 1ahand stumbles you, 2cut it off; it is better for you to enter into 3life maimed than to have two hands and go away into 4Gehenna, into 5unquenchable bfire.

44 See note 144.

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 1Gehenna.

46 See note 146.

47 And if your aeye stumbles you, cast it out; it is better for you to enter into the 1bkingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into Gehenna,

48 Where their 1worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.

49 For everyone shall be 1salted with 2fire.

50 1Salt is good, but if the salt becomes 2unsalty, with what will you restore its saltiness? Have salt in yourselves and be at apeace with one another.
