Mark 3

And again Jesus entered into a synagogue. And there was a man there, whose hand was withered. And they watched him, that if he should heal on the sabbath, they might accuse him. And he said to the man of the withered hand: Stand up in the midst. And he said also to them: Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath, or to do evil? to give life to a person, or to destroy? But they were silent And he looked on them with indignation, being grieved with the hardness of their heart. And he said to the man: Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched forth, and his hand was restored. And the Pharisees went out, that very hour, with the domestics of Herod, and held a consultation against him, how they might destroy him. And Jesus retired with his disciples to the sea. And many people joined him from Galilee, and from Judaea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan, and from Tyre, and from Sidon: great multitudes, when they heard all that he did, came to him. And he told his disciples to bring him a ship, on account of the multitude, lest they should crowd upon him 10 For he had healed many, so that they rushed upon him, in order to touch him. 11 And they who were afflicted with unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down and cried out, and said: Thou art the Son of God. 12 And he charged them much, not to make him known. 13 And he ascended a mountain, and called whom he pleased; and they came to him. 14 And he chose twelve to be with him, whom he would send out to preach, 15 and who would have power to heal the sick, and to cast out demons. 16 And to Simon he gave the name of Cephas. 17 And to James the son of Zebedee and to John the brother of James, he gave the name of Boanerges, that is, Sons of thunder. 18 And he chose also Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Canaanite, 19 And Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. And they came to the house: 20 and the multitude assembled again, so that they could not eat bread. 21 And his kinsmen heard, and went out to take him; for they said: He is out of his reason. 22 And those Scribes that had come down from Jerusalem, said: Beelzebub is in him; and by the prince of demons he expelleth demons. 23 And Jesus called them, and said to them, by similitudes : How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 For if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan rise up against himself and be divided, he cannot stand, but is at an end. 27 No one can enter the house of a strong man, and plunder his goods, unless he first bind the strong man; and then he may rob his house. 28 Verily I say to you: All sins, and the blasphemies that men may utter, may be forgiven them: 29 but whoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, to him for ever there is no forgiveness; but he is obnoxious to eternal judgment. 30 Because they had said: An unclean spirit is in him. 31 And his mother and his brothers came, and, standing without, sent to call him to them. 32 And the multitude were sitting around him, and they said to him: Lo, thy mother and thy brothers, without, call for thee. 33 He replied, and said to them: Who is my mother? and who are my brothers? 34 And he looked upon those who sat by him, and said: Behold my mother! and, behold my brothers! 35 For whoever shall do the pleasure of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and my mother.
