Mark 16:15-20

The Great Commission

15 And he said to them, t "Go into all the world and u proclaim the gospel to v the whole creation. 16 w Whoever believes and is x baptized y will be saved, but z whoever w does not believe will be condemned. 17 And a these signs will accompany those who believe: b in my name they will cast out demons; c they will speak in new tongues; 18 d they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; e they will lay their hands f on the sick, and they will recover."

19 So then the Lord Jesus, g after he had spoken to them, h was taken up into heaven and i sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while j the Lord worked with them and confirmed k the message l by accompanying signs.]]
