Matthew 9

1And he entered into a boat, and passed over, and came into his own city. 2And, behold, they brought to him a man sick with the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said to the sick with the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins are forgiven thee. 3And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. 4And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Why think ye evil in your hearts? 5For which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick with the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go to thy house. 7And he arose, and departed to his house. 8But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, who had given such power to men.

9And as Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the tax office: and he saith to him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. 10And it came to pass, as Jesus sat eating in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples, Why eateth your Master with tax collectors and sinners? 12But when Jesus heard that, he said to them, They that are well need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

14Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but thy disciples fast not? 15And Jesus said to them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then they shall fast. 16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth to an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the tear is made worse.
new: or, raw, or, unwrought
17Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
bottles: or, sacks of skin, or, leather

18While he was speaking these things to them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. 19And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. 20And, behold, a woman, who was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: 21For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be healed. 22But Jesus turned himself about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee well. And the woman was healed from that hour. 23And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, 24He said to them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed at him. 25But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26And the fame of this went abroad into all that land.
the fame...: or, this fame

27And when Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. 28And when he had come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith to them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said to him, Yea, Lord. 29Then he touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it to you. 30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus sternly charged them, saying, See that no man know it . 31But they, when they had departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country. 32As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a demon. 33And when the demon was cast out, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel. 34But the Pharisees said, He casteth out demons through the prince of the demons.

35And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they were faint, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
fainted...: or, were tired and lay down
37Then saith he to his disciples, The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few; 38Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
