1 And he entered
again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had
a withered hand.
2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath
day; that they might accuse him.
3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand
4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath
days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held
5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being
grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the
man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and
his hand was restored whole as the other.
6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel
with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea:
and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
8 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan;
and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they
had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
9 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait
on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him
for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before
him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
12 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him
13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom
he would: and they came unto him.
14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and
that he might send them forth to preach,
15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
16 And Simon he surnamed Peter;
17 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James;
and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and
Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon
19 And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went
into an house.
20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could
not so much as eat bread.
21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold
on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables,
How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot
26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he
cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his
goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he
will spoil his house.
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the
sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing
without, sent unto him, calling him.
32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him,
Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and
said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother,
and my sister, and mother.
