Luke 5

CHAPTER 5

Jesus at the Lake of Gennesaret

And it came to pass in the time the multitude pressed upon him to hear the word of God, and he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret, and he saw two boats standing by the lake; and the fishermen having disembarked from them were washing the nets. And having stepped into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him [3from 4the 5land 1to turn back 2a little]. And having sat down he taught [3from out of 4the 5boat 1the 2multitudes].

The Miracle of the Catch

And as he ceased speaking, he said to Simon, Turn back into the depth, and let down your nets for a catch! And responding Simon said to him, Master, through the entire night having tired [2nothing 1we took], but on your word I will let down the net. And this having done, they closed up a multitude [2fishes 1of great]; [3was being torn 1and 2their net]. And they nodded to their partners, to the ones in the other boat, to come seize them; and they came and filled both the boats, so that they were submerged. And beholding, Simon Peter fell at the knees of Jesus, saying, Go forth from me, for [2a man 3a sinner 1I am], O Lord. For a stupefaction compassed him, and all the ones with him, over the catch of the fishes which they seized; 10 and likewise also James and John, the sons of Zebedee, the ones who were partners with Simon. And [2said 3to 4Simon 1Jesus], Fear not! from now on [3men 1you will be 2taking alive]! 11 And leading the boats unto the land, leaving all, they followed him.

Jesus Heals the Leper

12 And it came to pass in his being in one of the cities, and behold -- a man full of leprosy. And seeing Jesus, falling upon his face, he beseeched him, saying, O Lord, if you should want, you are able to cleanse me. 13 And having stretched out the hand, he touched him, saying, I want, be cleansed! And immediately the leprosy went forth from him. 14 And he exhorted him [2no one 1to tell]; but said, Having gone forth show yourself to the priest, and offer concerning your cleansing as Moses assigned for a testimony to them! 15 [4went through 1And 5more 2the 3word] concerning him. And [3gathered together 2multitudes 1many] to hear, and to be cured by him of their sicknesses. 16 And he was retreating in the wildernesses, and praying. 17 And it came to pass on one of the days, and he was teaching, and there were sitting down Pharisees and teachers of the law, the ones who were coming from out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem. And power of the Lord was there for them to be healed. 18 And behold, men were bringing upon a bed a man who was disabled, and they sought to carry him in, and to put him in front of him. 19 And not having found by what means they should carry him in through the multitude, having ascending upon the roof, [3through 4the 5ceramic tiles 1they lowered 2him] with the cot into the midst before Jesus.

Jesus Forgives Sins

20 And beholding their belief, he said to him, O man, [2are forgiven 3you 1your sins]. 21 And [6began 7to reason 1the 2scribes 3and 4the 5Pharisees], saying, Who is this who speaks blasphemy? Who is able to forgive sins, except God alone? 22 [3recognizing 1And 2Jesus] their thoughts, responding said to them, Why do you reason in your hearts? 23 What is easier to say? [2are forgiven 3to you 1Your sins]; or to say, Arise and walk! 24 But that you should know that [5authority 4has 1the 2son 3of man] upon the earth to forgive sins, he said to the disabled man, To you I say, Arise, and take your cot, go unto your house! 25 And immediately, having risen before them, and having lifted that upon which he reclined, he went forth unto his house glorifying God. 26 And astonishment took all, and they glorified God, and were filled of fear, saying that, We beheld an incredible thing today.

Levi the Tax Collector

27 And after these things he went forth, and he saw a tax collector, by name Levi, sitting down at the tax collector's station. And he said to him, Follow me! 28 And leaving behind all, having risen, he followed him. 29 And [2made 4banquet 3a great 1Levi] for him in his house. And was there [2multitude 3of tax collectors 1a great], and others who were with them reclining. 30 And [5grumbled 1their scribes 2and 3the 4Pharisees] against his disciples, saying, Why with the tax collectors and sinners does he eat and drink? 31 And answering Jesus said to them, No need [3have 1do the ones 2being in health] of a physician, but the ones [2illnesses 1having]. 32 I have not come to call righteous ones but sinners unto repentance.

Jesus Questioned About Fasting

33 And they said to him, Why do the disciples of John fast frequently, and [2supplications 1make], and in like manner the ones of the Pharisees, but the ones to you eat and drink? 34 And he said to them, Are you able [2the 3sons 4of the 5bridal chamber 7when 8the 9groom 11with 12them 10is 1to make 6fast]? 35 But there will come days, that whenever [3departs 4from 5them 1the 2groom], then they shall fast in those days. 36 And he spoke also a parable to them that, No one [2a piece of cloth 4coat 3of a new 1puts] upon [2cloak 1an old]; otherwise also the new splits, and the old cloak does not join in harmony with the one of the new. 37 And no one casts [2wine 1new] into [2leather wine bags 1old]; otherwise [4shall tear 1the 2new 3wine] the leather wine bags, and it will be poured out, and the leather wine bags will be destroyed. 38 But [2wine 1new 4into 6leather wine bags 5new 3is put], and both are preserved together. 39 And no one having drunk old wine immediately wants new; for he says the old is better.
