1  2  3  4  5  6  10 

1. And going into Capernaum again after some days it was heard that he is in the house (of Peter).

2. And many gathered so that there was no longer room for anything at the door and He speaks to them the word.

3. And [some] come to Him bearing a lame man being carried by four men.

4. And not being able to come in to Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was, and digging out [the roof], they were lowering the bed on which the lame man was laid.

5. And Jesus seeing their faith, He says to the lame man, "Child, your sins are forgiven.

6. And there were some of the scribes there sitting and reasoning in their hearts.

7. "What is this that He says? He blasphemes. Who is able to forgive sins, but God Alone?"

8. And immediately Jesus knowing in His spirit that they were reasoning in this way in their [hearts] says to them, "Why are you reasoning these things in your hearts?"

9. "What is easier work, to say to the lame man, 'your sins are forgiven' or to say, 'get up and take your bed and walk'?"

10. But in order that you may know that the Son of man has authority to forgive sins on the earth---He says to the lame man,

11. "I say to you, get up, take your bed and depart to your house."

12. And he got up and immediately took his bed [and] went out before all of them so that all were amazed and glorified God saying, "we have never seen [anything] in this way."

13. And He went out again beside the sea. And the whole crowd began [to come] to Him and he was teaching them.

14. And going along he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting in a tax booth. And he says to him, "Follow me." And getting up, he followed Him.

15. And it came about that He was reclining in his house and many tax collectors and sinners were gathering together with Jesus and with His disciples.

16. For many were [there], and [many] were following Him. And the scribes of the Pharisees seeing that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors were saying to His disciples, "He eats with tax collectors and sinners?"

17. And hearing [them], Jesus says to them, "those who are well/strong have no need for a doctor, but those who have it bad. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

18. And the disciples of John and the Pharisees were fasting. And they come and say to Him, "For what reason do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but Your disciples do not fast?"

19. And Jesus said to them, "The sons of the bridegroom are not able to fast while the bridegroom is with them. As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they are not able to fast."

20. "But days will come when the Bridegroom is snatched from them, and then they will fast in that day."

21. No one sews a patch of ragged unprepared wool on an old cloak, lest it tear the whole [garment] from itself, the new from the old and it becomes a worse tear.

22. And no one puts new wine into old wine skins. Lest the wine burst the skins and the wine is destroyed and the skins. [A variant says, 'the wine is poured out and the skins are destroyed"] But new wine [is to be put] into new wine skins.

23. And it came about on the sabbath [they] went beside corn fields and His disciples began traveling plucking ears of corn. ***

24. And the Pharisees were saying to Him, "Behold they are doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?"***

25. And He says to them, "Did you never know what David did when he had need both he himself and those with him were hungry."

26. "How he went into the house of God to Abiathar the high priest and they ate the bread (plural) of the presence which is unlawful to eat except for the priests. And he gave also to those who were with him" (1 Samuel 21:1-6).***

27. And He was saying to them, "The sabbath came about because of man and not man because of the sabbath."***

28. "So the Son of man is the Lord also of the sabbath."
