Mar 10:38 You know not what you ask...

Mar 10:38 You know not what you ask: can you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
Alternative: You do not see what you are asking: do you have the power to drink from the cup that I drink from and be washed by the drowning by which I am washed?

The first part of this verse is that statement of a simple truth. Since we do not know where we come from or where we are going, we never know what to ask for and what our desires mean.
