The Great Commission

Mark 16

14 l Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 m And He said to them, "Go into all the world n and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 o "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; p but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 "And these q signs will follow those who 1 believe: r In My name they will cast out demons; s they will speak with new tongues; 18 t "they 2 will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; u they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

19 So then, v after the Lord had spoken to them, He was w received up into heaven, and x sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them y and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
