Luke 51Now it happened, while the multitude pressed on him and heard the word of God, that he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret. 2He saw two boats standing by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. 4When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch."
5Simon answered him, "Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the nets ▼
▼M TR read "net" instead of "nets"." 6When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking. 7They beckoned to their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. They came, and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. 8But Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Yeshua' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord." 9For he was amazed, and all who were with him, at the catch of fish which they had caught; 10and so also were Jacob and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon.
Yeshua said to Simon, "Do not be afraid. From now on you will be catching men."
11When they had brought their boats to land, they left everything, and followed him. 12It happened, while he was in one of the cities, behold, there was a man full of leprosy. When he saw Yeshua, he fell on his face, and begged him, saying, "Lord, if you want to, you can make me clean."
13And he stretched out his hand, and touched him, saying, "I want to. Be made clean."
Immediately the leprosy left him. 14He commanded him to tell no one, "But go your way, and show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing according to what Moses commanded, for a testimony to them." 15But the report concerning him spread much more, and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed ▼
▼NU P. M TR Vg add "by him"of their infirmities. 16But he withdrew himself into the desert, and prayed.
17It happened on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Pharisees and teachers of the Law sitting by, who had come out of every village of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. The power of the Lord was with him to heal ▼
▼M TR add "them". 18Behold, men brought a paralyzed man on a cot, and they sought to bring him in to lay before Yeshua. 19Not finding a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his cot into the midst before Yeshua. 20Seeing their faith, he said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you."
21The scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"
22But Yeshua, perceiving their thoughts, answered them, "Why are you reasoning so in your hearts? 23Which is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you;' or to say, 'Arise and walk?' 24But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins" (he said to the paralyzed man), "I tell you, arise, and take up your cot, and go to your house."
25Immediately he rose up before them, and took up that which he was laying on, and departed to his house, glorifying God. 26Amazement took hold on all, and they glorified God. They were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today."
27After these things he went out, and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax office, and said to him, "Follow me!"
28He left everything, and rose up and followed him. 29Levi made a great feast for him in his house. There was a great crowd of tax collectors and others who were reclining with them. 30The Pharisees and their scribes ▼
▼NU Vg. M TR: "Their scribes and the Pharisees"murmured against his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with the tax collectors and sinners?" 31Yeshua answered them, "Those who are healthy have no need for a physician, but those who are sick do. 32I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
33They said to him, "The disciples of John ▼
▼M TR read "Why do John's disciples" instead of "The disciples of John"often fast and pray, likewise also the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink."
34He said to them, "Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 35But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them. Then they will fast in those days." 36He also told a parable to them. "No one having torn ▼
▼M TR read "puts" instead of "having torn"a piece from a new garment puts it on an old garment, or else he will tear the new, and also the piece from the new will not match the old. 37And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 38But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins ▼
▼M TR add "and both are preserved". 39No man having drunk old wine ▼
▼M TR add "immediately"desires new, for he says, 'The old is better.'"
