8:1And when he came down from the mount, great multitudes did follow him,
8:2and lo, a leper having come, was bowing to him, saying, `Sir, if thou art willing, thou art able to cleanse me;'
8:3and having stretched forth the hand, Jesus touched him, saying, `I will, be thou cleansed,' and immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
8:4And Jesus saith to him, `See, thou mayest tell no one, but go, thyself shew to the priest, and bring the gift that Moses commanded for a testimony to them.'
8:5And Jesus having entered into Capernaum, there came to him a centurion calling upon him,
8:6and saying, `Sir, my young man hath been laid in the house a paralytic, fearfully afflicted,'
8:7and Jesus saith to him, `I, having come, will heal him.'
8:8And the centurion answering said, `Sir, I am not worthy that thou mayest enter under my roof, but only say a word, and my servant shall be healed;
8:9for I also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers, and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth, and to another, Be coming, and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this, and he doth it.'
8:10And Jesus having heard, did wonder, and said to those following, `Verily I say to you, not even in Israel so great faith have I found;
8:11and I say to you, that many from east and west shall come and recline (at meat) with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the reign of the heavens,
8:12but the sons of the reign shall be cast forth to the outer darkness -- there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.'
8:13And Jesus said to the centurion, `Go, and as thou didst believe let it be to thee;' and his young man was healed in that hour.
8:14And Jesus having come into the house of Peter, saw his mother-in-law laid, and fevered,
8:15and he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she arose, and was ministering to them.
8:16And evening having come, they brought to him many demoniacs, and he did cast out the spirits with a word, and did heal all who were ill,
8:17that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, `Himself took our infirmities, and the sicknesses he did bear.'
8:18And Jesus having seen great multitudes about him, did command to depart to the other side;
8:19and a certain scribe having come, said to him, `Teacher, I will follow thee wherever thou mayest go;'
8:20and Jesus saith to him, `The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven places of rest, but the Son of Man hath not where he may lay the head.'
8:21And another of his disciples said to him, `Sir, permit me first to depart and to bury my father;'
8:22and Jesus said to him, `Follow me, and suffer the dead to bury their own dead.'
8:23And when he entered into the boat his disciples did follow him,
8:24and lo, a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves, but he was sleeping,
8:25and his disciples having come to him, awoke him, saying, `Sir, save us; we are perishing.'
8:26And he saith to them, `Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?' Then having risen, he rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm;
8:27and the men wondered, saying, `What kind -- is this, that even the wind and the sea do obey him?'
8:28And he having come to the other side, to the region of the Gergesenes, there met him two demoniacs, coming forth out of the tombs, very fierce, so that no one was able to pass over by that way,
8:29and lo, they cried out, saying, `What -- to us and to thee, Jesus, Son of God? didst thou come hither, before the time, to afflict us?'
8:30And there was far off from them a herd of many swine feeding,
8:31and the demons were calling on him, saying, `If thou dost cast us forth, permit us to go away to the herd of the swine;'
8:32and he saith to them, `Go.' And having come forth, they went to the herd of the swine, and lo, the whole herd of the swine rushed down the steep, to the sea, and died in the waters,
8:33and those feeding did flee, and, having gone to the city, they declared all, and the matter of the demoniacs.
8:34And lo, all the city came forth to meet Jesus, and having seen him, they called on him that he might depart from their borders.
9:1And having gone to the boat, he passed over, and came to his own city,
9:2and lo, they were bringing to him a paralytic, laid upon a couch, and Jesus having seen their faith, said to the paralytic, `Be of good courage, child, thy sins have been forgiven thee.'
9:3And lo, certain of the scribes said within themselves, `This one doth speak evil.'
9:4And Jesus, having known their thoughts, said, `Why think ye evil in your hearts?
9:5for which is easier? to say, The sins have been forgiven to thee; or to say, Rise, and walk?
9:6`But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power upon the earth to forgive sins -- (then saith he to the paralytic) -- having risen, take up thy couch, and go to thy house.'
9:7And he, having risen, went to his house,
9:8and the multitudes having seen, wondered, and glorified God, who did give such power to men.
9:9And Jesus passing by thence, saw a man sitting at the tax-office, named Matthew, and saith to him, `Be following me,' and he, having risen, did follow him.
9:10And it came to pass, he reclining (at meat) in the house, that lo, many tax-gatherers and sinners having come, were lying (at meat) with Jesus and his disciples,
9:11and the Pharisees having seen, said to his disciples, `Wherefore with the tax-gatherers and sinners doth your teacher eat?'
9:12And Jesus having heard, said to them, `They who are whole have no need of a physician, but they who are ill;
9:13but having gone, learn ye what is, Kindness I will, and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'
9:14Then come to him do the disciples of John, saying, `Wherefore do we and the Pharisees fast much, and thy disciples fast not?'
9:15And Jesus said to them, `Can the sons of the bride-chamber mourn, so long as the bridegroom is with them? but days shall come when the bridegroom may be taken from them, and then they shall fast.
9:16`And no one doth put a patch of undressed cloth on an old garment, for its filling up doth take from the garment, and a worse rent is made.
9:17`Nor do they put new wine into old skins, and if not -- the skins burst, and the wine doth run out, and the skins are destroyed, but they put new wine into new skins, and both are preserved together.'
9:18While he is speaking these things to them, lo, a ruler having come, was bowing to him, saying that `My daughter just now died, but, having come, lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.'
9:19And Jesus having risen, did follow him, also his disciples,
9:20and lo, a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, having come to him behind, did touch the fringe of his garments,
9:21for she said within herself, `If only I may touch his garment, I shall be saved.'
9:22And Jesus having turned about, and having seen her, said, `Be of good courage, daughter, thy faith hath saved thee,' and the woman was saved from that hour.
9:23And Jesus having come to the house of the ruler, and having seen the minstrels and the multitude making tumult,
9:24he saith to them, `Withdraw, for the damsel did not die, but doth sleep,' and they were deriding him;
9:25but, when the multitude was put forth, having gone in, he took hold of her hand, and the damsel arose,
9:26and the fame of this went forth to all the land.
9:27And Jesus passing on thence, two blind men followed him, calling and saying, `Deal kindly with us, Son of David.'
9:28And he having come to the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus saith to them, `Believe ye that I am able to do this?' They say to him, `Yes, sir.'
9:29Then touched he their eyes, saying, `According to your faith let it be to you,'
9:30and their eyes were opened, and Jesus strictly charged them, saying, `See, let no one know;'
9:31but they, having gone forth, did spread his fame in all that land.
9:32And as they are coming forth, lo, they brought to him a man dumb, a demoniac,
9:33and the demon having been cast out, the dumb spake, and the multitude did wonder, saying that `It was never so seen in Israel:'
9:34but the Pharisees said, `By the ruler of the demons he doth cast out the demons.'
9:35And Jesus was going up and down all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the reign, and healing every sickness and every malady among the people.
9:36And having seen the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, that they were faint and cast aside, as sheep not having a shepherd,
9:37then saith he to his disciples, `The harvest indeed is abundant, but the workmen few;
9:38beseech ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he may put forth workmen to His harvest.'
10:1And having called to him his twelve disciples, he gave to them power over unclean spirits, so as to be casting them out, and to be healing every sickness, and every malady.
10:2And of the twelve apostles the names are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James of Zebedee, and John his brother;
10:3Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the tax-gatherer; James of Alpheus, and Lebbeus who was surnamed Thaddeus;
10:4Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who did also deliver him up.
10:5These twelve did Jesus send forth, having given command to them, saying, `To the way of the nations go not away, and into a city of the Samaritans go not in,
10:6and be going rather unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
10:7`And, going on, proclaim saying that, the reign of the heavens hath come nigh;
10:8infirm ones be healing, lepers be cleansing, dead be raising, demons be casting out -- freely ye did receive, freely give.
10:9`Provide not gold, nor silver, nor brass in your girdles,
10:10nor scrip for the way, nor two coats, nor sandals, nor staff -- for the workman is worthy of his nourishment.
10:11`And into whatever city or village ye may enter, inquire ye who in it is worthy, and there abide, till ye may go forth.
10:12And coming to the house salute it,
10:13and if indeed the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; and if it be not worthy, let your peace turn back to you.
10:14`And whoever may not receive you nor hear your words, coming forth from that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet,
10:15verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.
10:16`Lo, I do send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves, be ye therefore wise as the serpents, and simple as the doves.
10:17And, take ye heed of men, for they will give you up to sanhedrims, and in their synagogues they will scourge you,
10:18and before governors and kings ye shall be brought for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the nations.
10:19`And whenever they may deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye may speak, for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak;
10:20for ye are not the speakers, but the Spirit of your Father that is speaking in you.
10:21`And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and father child, and children shall rise up against parents, and shall put them to death,
10:22and ye shall be hated by all because of my name, but he who hath endured to the end, he shall be saved.
10:23`And whenever they may persecute you in this city, flee to the other, for verily I say to you, ye may not have completed the cities of Israel till the Son of Man may come.
10:24`A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his lord;
10:25sufficient to the disciple that he may be as his teacher, and the servant as his lord; if the master of the house they did call Beelzeboul, how much more those of his household?
10:26`Ye may not, therefore, fear them, for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed, and hid, that shall not be known;
10:27that which I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light, and that which you hear at the ear, proclaim on the house-tops.
10:28`And be not afraid of those killing the body, and are not able to kill the soul, but fear rather Him who is able both soul and body to destroy in gehenna.
10:29`Are not two sparrows sold for an assar? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father;
10:30and of you -- even the hairs of the head are all numbered;
10:31be not therefore afraid, than many sparrows ye are better.
10:32`Every one, therefore, who shall confess in me before men, I also will confess in him before my Father who is in the heavens;
10:33and whoever shall deny me before men, I also will deny him before my Father who is in the heavens.
10:34`Ye may not suppose that I came to put peace on the earth; I did not come to put peace, but a sword;
10:35for I came to set a man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,
10:36and the enemies of a man are those of his household.
10:37`He who is loving father or mother above me, is not worthy of me, and he who is loving son or daughter above me, is not worthy of me,
10:38and whoever doth not receive his cross and follow after me, is not worthy of me.
10:39`He who found his life shall lose it, and he who lost his life for my sake shall find it.
10:40`He who is receiving you doth receive me, and he who is receiving me doth receive Him who sent me,
10:41he who is receiving a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who is receiving a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive a righteous man's reward,
10:42and whoever may give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say to you, he may not lose his reward.'
11:1And it came to pass, when Jesus ended directing his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.
11:2And John having heard in the prison the works of the Christ, having sent two of his disciples,
11:3said to him, `Art thou He who is coming, or for another do we look?'
11:4And Jesus answering said to them, `Having gone, declare to John the things that ye hear and see,
11:5blind receive sight, and lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and deaf hear, dead are raised, and poor have good news proclaimed,
11:6and happy is he who may not be stumbled in me.'
11:7And as they are going, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, `What went ye out to the wilderness to view? -- a reed shaken by the wind?
11:8`But what went ye out to see? -- a man clothed in soft garments? lo, those wearing the soft things are in the kings' houses.
11:9`But what went ye out to see? -- a prophet? yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet,
11:10for this is he of whom it hath been written, Lo, I do send My messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee.
11:11Verily I say to you, there hath not risen, among those born of women, a greater than John the Baptist, but he who is least in the reign of the heavens is greater than he.
11:12`And, from the days of John the Baptist till now, the reign of the heavens doth suffer violence, and violent men do take it by force,
11:13for all the prophets and the law till John did prophesy,
11:14and if ye are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who was about to come;
11:15he who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.
11:16`And to what shall I liken this generation? it is like little children in market-places, sitting and calling to their comrades,
11:17and saying, We piped unto you, and ye did not dance, we lamented to you, and ye did not smite the breast.
11:18`For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a demon;
11:19the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, Lo, a man, a glutton, and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners, and wisdom was justified of her children.'
11:20Then began he to reproach the cities in which were done most of his mighty works, because they did not reform.
11:21`Wo to thee, Chorazin! wo to thee, Bethsaida! because, if in Tyre and Sidon had been done the mighty works that were done in you, long ago in sackcloth and ashes they had reformed;
11:22but I say to you, to Tyre and Sidon it shall be more tolerable in a day of judgment than for you.
11:23`And thou, Capernaum, which unto the heaven wast exalted, unto hades shalt be brought down, because if in Sodom had been done the mighty works that were done in thee, it had remained unto this day;
11:24but I say to you, to the land of Sodom it shall be more tolerable in a day of judgment than to thee.'
11:25At that time Jesus answering said, `I do confess to Thee, Father, Lord of the heavens and of the earth, that thou didst hide these things from wise and understanding ones, and didst reveal them to babes.
11:26Yes, Father, because so it was good pleasure before Thee.
11:27`All things were delivered to me by my Father, and none doth know the Son, except the Father, nor doth any know the Father, except the Son, and he to whom the Son may wish to reveal Him.
11:28`Come unto me, all ye labouring and burdened ones, and I will give you rest,
11:29take up my yoke upon you, and learn from me, because I am meek and humble in heart, and ye shall find rest to your souls,
11:30for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.'
