1 He came again into the synagogue, a man was there having a withered hand. 2 And they were watching Him, if He will heal him on the Sabbath, that they might accuse Him. 3 And He says to the man having a withered hand; Rise up in the midst. 4 And He says to them; Is it lawful to do good or to do evil on the Sabbath; to save life, or to kill? And they were silent. 5 And looking round on them with indignation, being grieved over the hardness of their hearts, He says to the man; Reach forth thy hand. And he reached it forth and it was restored. 6 And the Pharisees, having gone out immediately along with the Herodians, took counsel against Him in order that they might kill Him.
7 And Jesus departed with His disciples to the sea: and a great multitude followed Him from Galilee, and from Judea, 8 and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyond the Jordan, and those about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, hearing so many things that He was doing, came to Him. 9 And He said to His disciples, that a little boat should wait on Him in order that they may not tread on Him. 10 For He healed many; so that they were falling before Him so that they might touch Him, so many as had diseases. 11 And unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and were crying out, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12 And He charged them much that they should not make Him known.
13 And He goes up into the mountain, and calls whom He wished: and they went away to Him. 14 And He made twelve (apostles) that they may be with Him and that He may send them out to preach, 15 and to have power to heal diseases, and to cast out the demons.
16 And He placed the name Peter on Simon; 17 and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and on them He placed the names Boanerges, which is, Sons of thunder: 18 and Andrew and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, 19 who also betrayed Him.
20 And He comes into a house; and the multitude come together again so they are not able to eat bread. 21 And those along with Him hearing came out to arrest Him: for they continued to say, He is beside Himself.
22 And the scribes having come down from Jerusalem were saving, He has Beelzebul and He is casting out the demons through the prince of the demons.
23 And calling them to Him, He continued to speak to them in parables, How is Satan able to cast out Satan? 24 And if a kingdom may be divided against itself, that kingdom is not able to stand, 25 and if a house may be divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand; 26 and if Satan stand up against himself, and is divided, he is not able to stand, but has an end.
27 No one is able, having entered into the house of a strong man, to spoil his goods, unless he may first bind the strong man, and then he will spoil his house. 28 Truly I say unto you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies whatsoever they may blaspheme: 29 but whosoever may blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is subject of eternal condemnation. 30 Because they were saying, He has an unclean spirit.
31 And His mother and His brothers come; and standing without, sent to Him, calling Him. 32 And the crowd was sitting round Him; and they say to Him, Behold thy mother and thy brothers without are seeking thee.
