Mark 2

And again He having come into Capernaum during those days; and it was heard that He was in the house. And immediately many were assembled together, so that there was no room, even at the door; and He was speaking the word to them. And they come to Him, carrying a paralytic, borne by four. And not being able to come near Him on account of the crowd, they opened the roof where He was: and having lifted it up, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying. And Jesus seeing their faith says to the paralytic, Child, thy sins are forgiven thee. And certain ones of the scribes were sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why does He speak blasphemies? Who is able to forgive sins, except the one God? And Jesus immediately knowing in His spirit that they are thus reasoning among themselves, said to them, Why do you thus reason in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, Thy sins are forgiven; or to say, Arise, and take thy bed, and walk about? 10 But in order that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins 11 (He says to the paralytic), I say unto thee, Arise, take thy bed, and go into thy house. 12 And he arose immediately, and having taken the bed, went out before them all. So that all were astonished, and glorified God, saying, Never have we seen it after this sort. 13 And He came out again by the sea; and the whole multitude came to Him, and He was teaching them. 14 And passing along, he saw Levi, the son of Alpheus sitting at the toll, and says to him, Follow me. And rising up, he followed Him. 15 And it came to pass, while He was sitting at the table in his house, and many publicans and sinners were sitting along with Jesus and his disciples: for they were many, and they followed Him. 16 And the scribes and Pharisees, seeing Him eating with the publicans and sinners, were saying to His disciples, Why does He eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 17 Jesus hearing, says to them, They that are whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 18 The disciples of John and the Pharisees were fasting. And they come and say to Him; Wherefore do the disciples of John and the Pharisees fast, and thy disciples do not fast? 19 And Jesus said to them, Whether are the sons of the bride-chamber able to fast while the bridegroom is with them? So long a time as they have with them the bridegroom they are not able to fast. 20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom must be taken from them, and then they will fast in that day. 21 No one putteth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: lest the new take its fullness from the old, and the rent is made worse. 22 No one puts new wine in old bottles: lest the new wine shall break the bottles, and the wine is poured out, and the bottles shall perish: but the new wine is put in new bottles. 23 And it came to pass, that He was traveling through the corn-fields on the Sabbath-day; and His disciples began to make the journey plucking the ears. 24 And the Pharisees continued to say to Him, Behold what they are doing on the Sabbath, which is not lawful. 25 And He said to them, Have ye not read what David did, when he had need, and was hungry, and those with him? 26 How he entered into the house of God, in the days of Abiathar, the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priest, and he gave it to those being with him? 27 And He said to them, The Sabbath was made for the sake of man, and not man for the sake of the Sabbath. 28 So the Son of man is also Lord of the Sabbath.
