1 Jesus went into the synagogue again, and a man with a paralyzed hand was there.
2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.

3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
3 He told the man with the paralyzed hand, "Come forward."
3 He said to the man whose hand was withered, “Get up and come forward!”
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 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.

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 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.
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.

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

9 Jesus told his disciples to have a boat ready for him so that the crowd wouldn't crush him,
9 And He told His disciples to have a small boat stand ready for Him because of the many people, so that they would not crowd Him;
10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
10 because he had healed so many people that everyone who had diseases kept crowding up against him in order to touch him.
10 for He had healed many, and as a result all who had diseases pressed around Him to touch Him.
11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
11 Whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they would fall down in front of him and scream, "You are the Son of God!"
11 Whenever the unclean spirits saw Him, they fell down before Him and screamed out, “You are the Son of God!”
12 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
20 Then he went home. Such a large crowd gathered again that Jesus and his disciples couldn't even eat.
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 heard about it, they went to restrain him, because they kept saying, "He's out of his mind!"
21 When His own family heard this they went to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “He is out of His mind.”
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 who had come down from Jerusalem kept repeating, "He has Beelzebul," and, "He drives out demons by the ruler of demons."

23 So Jesus called them together and began to speak to them in parables. "How can Satan drive out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.
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 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 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
28 I tell all of you with certainty, people will be forgiven their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter.
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;
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
29 But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never be forgiven, but is guilty of eternal sin."
30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
30 because they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”
30 "because they had been saying, "He has an unclean spirit."
30 [Jesus said this] because the scribes and Pharisees were [attributing His miracles to Satan by] saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”
31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
