9 aAnd he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into bhis own city. 2 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. 3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. 4 And Jesus fknowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? 5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy esins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6 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. 7 And he arose, and departed to his house. 8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and ffglorified God, which had given such power unto men.
9 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.
