Mark 3

1And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there who had a withered hand. 2And they watched him, to see whether he would heal him on the sabbath; that they might accuse him. 3And he saith to the man who had the withered hand, Stand forth.
Stand forth: Gr. Arise, stand forth in the midst
4And he saith to them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. 5And when he had looked around on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith to the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored as whole as the other.
hardness: or, blindness
6And the Pharisees went forth, and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him. 7But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, 8And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came to him. 9And he spoke to his disciples, that a small boat should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. 10For he had healed many; so that they pressed upon him to touch him, as many as had afflictions.
pressed: or, rushed
11And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12And he strictly charged them that they should not make him known.

13And he goeth up upon a mountain, and calleth to him whom he would: and they came to him. 14And he appointed twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, 15And to have authority to heal sicknesses, and to cast out demons: 16And Simon he surnamed Peter; 17And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: 18And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, 19And Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
into...: or, home
20And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
friends: or, kinsmen

22And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the demons he casteth out demons. 23And he called them to him, and said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and plunder his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will plunder his house. 28Verily I say to you, All sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they shall blaspheme: 29But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit never hath forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 30Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

31There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing outside, they sent to him, calling him. 32And the multitude sat about him, and they said to him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. 33And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? 34And he looked around on them who sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 35For whoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
