A Man With A Withered Hand Healed

1 Again Jesus went into a synagogue; and a man was there whose hand was (a)withered.(A)

1 (A)He (B)entered again into a synagogue; and a man was there whose hand was withered.

1 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

1 Now(A) He entered the synagogue(B) again, and a man was there who had a paralyzed(C) hand.

1 Jesus went into the synagogue again, and a man with a paralyzed hand was there.

2 The Pharisees were watching Jesus closely to see if He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him [in the Jewish high court].

2 (C)They were watching Him to see if He would heal him on the Sabbath, (D)so that they might accuse Him.

2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.

2 In order to accuse(D) Him, they were watching Him closely(E) to see whether He would heal(F) him on the Sabbath.(G)

2 The people watched Jesus closely to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, intending to accuse him of doing something wrong.

3 He said to the man whose hand was withered, “Get up and come forward!”

3 He *said to the man with the withered hand, (a)Get up and come forward!”

3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

3 He told the man with the paralyzed hand, “Stand before us.”(a)

3 He told the man with the paralyzed hand, "Come forward."

4 He asked them, “Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save a life or to kill?” But they kept silent.

4 And He *said to them, “Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to kill?” But they kept silent.

4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

4 Then He said to them, “Is it lawful(H) on the Sabbath to do what is good(I) or to do what is evil,(J) to save life(K) or to kill?”(L) But they were silent.(M)

4 Then he asked them, "Is it lawful to do good or to do evil on Sabbath days, to save a life or to destroy it?" But they remained silent.

5 After looking around at them with anger, grieved at the hardness and arrogance of their hearts, He told the man, “Hold out your hand.” And he held it out, and his hand was [completely] restored.

5 After (E)looking around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, He *said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored.

5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

5 After looking around at them with anger(N) and sorrow at the hardness(O) of their hearts, He told the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out, and his hand was restored.(P)

5 Jesus looked around at them in anger, deeply hurt because of their hard hearts. Then he told the man, "Hold out your hand." The man held it out, and his hand was restored to health.

6 Then the Pharisees went out and immediately began conspiring with the (b)Herodians [to plot] against Him, as to how (c)they might [fabricate some legal grounds to] put Him to death.

6 The Pharisees went out and immediately began (b)conspiring with the (F)Herodians against Him, as to how they might destroy Him.

6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

6 Immediately the Pharisees(Q) went out and started plotting(R) with the Herodians(S) against Him, how they might destroy(T) Him.

6 Immediately the Pharisees and Herodians went out and began to plot how to kill him.

Jesus Heals Crowds By The Sea

7 Jesus withdrew to the sea with His disciples; and a large crowd from Galilee followed Him; and also people from Judea,

7 (G)Jesus withdrew to the sea with His disciples; and (H)a great multitude from Galilee followed; and also from Judea,

7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

7 Jesus(U) departed with His disciples to the sea, and a large crowd followed from Galilee,(V) Judea,(W)

7 So Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea. A large crowd from Galilee, Judea,

8 and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and [from the region] beyond the Jordan, and around Tyre and Sidon; a vast number of people came to Him because they were hearing about all [the things] that He was doing.

9 (K)And He told His disciples that a boat should stand ready for Him because of the crowd, so that they would not crowd Him;

9 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

9 Then He told His disciples to have a small boat(AB) ready for Him, so the crowd would not crush Him.

9 Jesus told his disciples to have a boat ready for him so that the crowd wouldn't crush him,

10 for He had healed many, and as a result all who had diseases pressed around Him to touch Him.

10 for He had (L)healed many, with the result that all those who had (M)afflictions pressed around Him in order to (N)touch Him.

10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

10 Since He had healed(AC) many, all who had diseases were pressing toward Him to touch(AD) Him.

11 Whenever the unclean spirits saw Him, they fell down before Him and screamed out, “You are the Son of God!”

11 Whenever the unclean spirits saw Him, they would fall down before Him and shout, “You are (O)the Son of God!”

A House Divided Cannot Stand

20 Then He came to a (g)house [in Capernaum], and a crowd formed again, so [many people] that Jesus and His disciples could not even eat a meal [together].

20 And He *came (h)(T)home, and the (U)crowd *gathered again, (V)to such an extent that they could not even eat (i)a meal.

20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

20 Then He went home, and the crowd gathered again so that they were not even able to eat.(g)

20 Then he went home. Such a large crowd gathered again that Jesus and his disciples couldn't even eat.

21 When His own family heard this they went to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “He is out of His mind.”

21 When (W)His own (j)people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “(X)He has lost His senses.”

21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.

21 When His family(BA) heard this, they set out to restrain Him, because they said, “He’s out of His mind.”(BB)

21 When his family heard about it, they went to restrain him, because they kept saying, "He's out of his mind!"

22 The scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by (h)Beelzebul (Satan),” and “He is driving out the demons by the [power of the] ruler of the demons.”(C)

22 The scribes who came down (Y)from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by (k)(Z)Beelzebul,” and “(AA)He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.”

22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.

22 The scribes(BC) who had come down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebul(BD) in Him!” and, “He drives out(BE) demons(BF) by the ruler(BG) of the demons!”(BH)

22 The scribes who had come down from Jerusalem kept repeating, "He has Beelzebul," and, "He drives out demons by the ruler of demons."

23 So He called them to Himself and spoke to them in (i)parables, “How can Satan drive out Satan?

23 (AB)And He called them to Himself and began speaking to them in (AC)parables, “How can (AD)Satan cast out Satan?

24 If a kingdom is divided [split into factions and rebelling] against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

24 If a kingdom(BM) is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

25 If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

25 And if a household is divided against itself, that household won't stand.

26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.

26 If (AE)Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but (l)he is finished!

26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

26 And if Satan rebels against himself and is divided, he cannot stand but is finished!(h)

26 So if Satan rebels against himself and is divided, he cannot stand. Indeed, his end has come.

27 But no one can go into a strong man’s house and steal his property unless he first overpowers and ties up the strong man, and then he will ransack and rob his house.(D)

27 (AF)But no one can enter the strong man’s house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.

27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

27 “On the other hand, no one can enter a strong man’s house and rob his possessions unless he first ties up(BN) the strong man. Then he will rob his house.

27 No one can go into a strong man's house and carry off his possessions without first tying up the strong man. Then he can ransack his house.

28 “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and all the abusive and blasphemous things they say;

28 (AG)Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter;

28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

28 I assure you: People will be forgiven for all sins(i) and whatever blasphemies(BO) they may blaspheme.

28 I tell all of you with certainty, people will be forgiven their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter.

29 but whoever (j)blasphemes against the Holy Spirit and His power [by attributing the miracles done by Me to Satan] never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin [a sin which is unforgivable in this present age as well as in the age to come]”—(E)

29 but (AH)whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”

29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

29 But whoever blasphemes(BP) against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness,(BQ) but is guilty(BR) of an eternal sin”(j)(BS)

29 But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never be forgiven, but is guilty of eternal sin."

30 [Jesus said this] because the scribes and Pharisees were [attributing His miracles to Satan by] saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”

30 because they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”

30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

30 because they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”(BT)

30 "because they had been saying, "He has an unclean spirit."

34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

34 Then looking at the people sitting around him, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers!

35 For (k)whoever does the will of God [by believing in Me, and following Me], he is My brother and sister and mother.”

35 For whoever (AK)does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.”

35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

35 Whoever does the will of God(BZ) is My brother and sister and mother.”

35 Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother."
