Matthew 8:1–10:15

When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. aAnd, behold, there came a leper and bworshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and bbtouched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus saith unto him, cSee thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that dMoses commanded, ddfor a testimony unto them.

eAnd when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant nlieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, fI am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but ffspeak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, gI have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, That hmany shall come from the east and west, and hhshall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But ithe children of the kingdom jshall be cast out into outer darkness: kthere shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

14 lAnd when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw mhis wife’s mother nlaid, and sick of a fever. 15 And he bbtouched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. 16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were opossessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, pHimself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, qhe gave commandment to depart unto the other side. 19 And ra certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, ssuffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

23 tAnd when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, uO ye of little faith? Then vhe arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the wGergesenes, there met him xtwo ypossessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, zWhat have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou zzSon of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? 30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. 31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. 33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the ypossessed of the devils. 34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, athey besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.

9 aAnd he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into bhis own city. cAnd, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus dseeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins ebe forgiven thee. And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. And Jesus fknowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? For whether is easier, to say, Thy esins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house. But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and ffglorified God, which had given such power unto men.

gAnd as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named ggMatthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. 10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, hmany publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master iwith publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn jwhat that meaneth, kI will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, lbut sinners to repentance.

14 mThen came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees nfast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, oCan pthe children of the ppbridechamber mourn, as long as the qbridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and qqthen shall they fast. 16 No man putteth a piece of ||new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else rthe bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

18 sWhile he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and tworshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. 19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. 20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased uwith an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched vthe hem of his garment: 21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. 22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; wthy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. 23 And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the xminstrels and the people making a noise, 24 He said unto them, Give place: yfor the maid is not dead, but zsleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. 25 But awhen the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And ||the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

27 And when Jesus departed thence, btwo blind men followed him, crying, and saying, cThou Son of David, have mercy on us. 28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, wBelieve ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. 29 Then cctouched he their eyes, saying, wAccording to your faith be it unto you. 30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus dstraitly charged them, saying, eSee that no man know it. 31 fBut they, when they were departed, ffspread abroad his fame in all that country.

32 gAs they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man hpossessed with a devil. 33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel. 34 But the Pharisees said, iHe casteth out devils through the prince of the devils. 35 kAnd Jesus went about all the cities and villages, lteaching in their synagogues, and preaching the lgospel of the kingdom, and lhealing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But mwhen he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they ||fainted, and were nscattered abroad, oas sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, pThe harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 qPray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will rsend forth labourers into his harvest.

10 And awhen he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power ||against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. bNow the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, cwho is called Peter, and dAndrew his brother; eJames the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and fMatthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon gthe Canaanite, and Judas hIscariot, who also betrayed him. These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into ithe way of the Gentiles, and into any city of kthe Samaritans enter ye not: lBut go rather to the mlost sheep of the house of Israel. nAnd as ye go, preach, saying, oThe kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: pfreely ye have received, freely give. q||Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor rbrass in your purses, 10 Nor sscrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet ||staves: tfor the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is uworthy; and there
