Mark 2:13-17

Jesus Calls Levi

13He went out again beside the sea, and a  all the crowd was coming to him, and he was teaching them. 14 b  And as he passed by, he saw c  Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, Follow me.” And he rose and followed him.

15And as he reclined at table in his house, many d  tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. 16And e  the scribes of
Some manuscripts and
the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples g  Why does he eat
Some manuscripts add and drink
with tax collectors and sinners?”
17And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. i  I came not to call the righteous j  but sinners.”
