Mark 16:17 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

These signs shall follow - Or rather, accompany; this is the proper import of the original word παρακολουθησει, from παρα with, and ακολουθεω, Ifollow.

Them that believe - The believers, as we express it; i.e. the apostles, and all those who in those primitive times were endued with miraculous powers, for the confirmation of the doctrines they preached.

In my name - That is, by the authority and influence of the almighty Jesus.

Cast out devils - Whose kingdom Jesus Christ was manifested to destroy.

Speak with new tongues - This was most literally fulfilled on the day of pentecost, Acts 2:4-19.

The World-Wide Commission
'Every creature.'--Mark xvi. 15. The missionary enterprise has been put on many bases.

Some confirmation of this alleged connection between the Evangelist and the Apostle may be gathered from the fact that the former is mentioned by the latter as with him when he wrote his First Epistle. And, in the

The women who had stood by the cross of Christ waited and watched for the hours of the Sabbath to pass. On the first day of the week, very early, they made their way to the tomb, taking with them precious spices to anoint the Saviour's body. They did not think about His rising from the dead. The sun of their hope had set, and night had settled down on their hearts. As they walked, they recounted Christ's works of mercy and His words of comfort. But they remembered not His words, "I will see you again."
