Mark 3

1And he entred againe into ye Synagogue, and there was a man which had a withered had.

2And they watched him, whether he would heale him on the Sabbath day, that they might accuse him.

3Then he saide vnto the man which had the withered hand, Arise: stand forth in the middes.

4And he saide to them, Is it lawfull to doe a good deede on the Sabbath day, or to doe euil? to saue the life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

5Then hee looked rounde about on them angerly, mourning also for the hardnesse of their hearts, and saide to the man, Stretch foorth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hande was restored, as whole as the other.

6And the Pharises departed, and straightway gathered a councill with the Herodians against him, that they might destroy him.

7But Iesus auoided with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude followed him from Galile, and from Iudea,

8And from Ierusalem, and from Idumea, and beyonde Iordan: and they that dwelled about Tyrus and Sidon, when they had heard what great things he did, came vnto him in great number.

9And he commanded his disciples, that a litle shippe should waite for him, because of the multitude, lest they shoulde throng him.

10For hee had healed many, in so much that they preassed vpon him to touch him, as many as had plagues.

11And when the vncleane spirits sawe him, they fel downe before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Sonne of God.

12And he sharply rebuked them, to the ende they should not vtter him.

13Then hee went vp into a mountaine, and called vnto him whome he woulde, and they came vnto him.

14And hee appoynted twelue that they should be with him, and that he might send them to preache,

15And that they might haue power to heale sicknesses, and to cast out deuils.

16And the first was Simon, and hee named Simon, Peter,

17Then Iames the sonne of Zebedeus, and Iohn Iames brother (and surnamed them Boanerges, which is, the sonnes of thunder,)

18And Andrew, and Philippe, and Bartlemew, and Matthewe, and Thomas, and Iames, the sonne of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Cananite,

19And Iudas Iscariot, who also betraied him, and they came home.

20And the multitude assembled againe, so that they could not so much as eate bread.

21And when his kinsfolkes heard of it, they went out to laie hold on him: for they sayde that he was beside himselfe.

22And the Scribes which came downe from Hierusalem, saide, He hath Beelzebub, and through the prince of the deuils he casteth out deuils.

23But he called them vnto him, and said vnto them in parables, How can Satan driue out Satan?

24For if a kingdome bee deuided against it selfe, that kingdome can not stand.

25Or if a house bee deuided against it selfe, that house can not continue.

26So if Satan make insurrection against himselfe, and be deuided, hee can not endure but is at an ende.

27No man can enter into a strong mans house, and take away his goods, except hee first binde that strong man, and then spoyle his house.

28Verely I say vnto you, all sinnes shalbe forgiuen vnto the children of men, and blasphemies, wherewith they blaspheme:

29But hee that blasphemeth against the holy Ghost, shall neuer haue forgiuenesse, but is culpable of eternall damnation.

30Because they saide, Hee had an vncleane spirit.

31Then came his brethren and mother, and stoode without, and sent vnto him, and called him.

32And the people sate about him, and they said vnto him, Beholde, thy mother, and thy brethren seeke for thee without.

33But hee answered them, saying, Who is my mother and my brethren?

34And hee looked rounde about on them, which sate in compasse about him, and saide, Beholde my mother and my brethren.

35For whosoeuer doeth the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
