And then he entered into a ship: and passed over and came into his own city. And, lo, they brought unto him a man sick of the palsy, lying in his bed: and when Jesus saw the faith of them, he said to the sick of the palsy, "Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee." And, behold, certain of the scribes said in themselves, "This man blasphemeth." read more.
And when Jesus saw their thoughts, he said, "Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? Whether is easier to say, thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, arise and walk? That ye may know that the son of man hath power to forgive sins in earth" - then said he unto the sick of the palsy - "Arise, take up thy bed, and go home to thine house." And he arose and departed to his own house. And when the people saw it, they marveled and glorified God, which had given such power to men. And as Jesus passed forth from thence he saw a man sit at the receipt of custom, named Matthew: and said to him, "Follow me." And he arose, and followed him. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down also with Jesus, and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw that, they said unto his disciples, "Why eateth your master with publicans and sinners?" When Jesus heard that, he said unto them, "The whole need not the physician, but they that are sick. Go and learn, what that meaneth: 'I have pleasure in mercy, and not in offering.' For I am not come to call the righteous, but the sinners to repentance." Then came the disciples of John to him, saying, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?" And Jesus said unto them, "Can the wedding children mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The time will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. No man pieceth an old garment with a piece of new cloth. For then taketh he away the piece again from the garment, and the rent is made greater. Neither do men put new wine into old vessels: for then the vessels break, and the wine runneth out, and the vessels perish: but they pour new wine into new vessels, and so are both saved together." While he thus spake unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him saying, "My daughter is even now deceased: but come and lay thy hand on her, and she shall live." And Jesus arose and followed him, with his disciples. And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him and touched the hem of his vesture: For she said in herself, "If I may touch but even his vesture only I shall be safe." Then Jesus turned him about, and beheld her, saying, "Daughter, be of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee safe." And she was made whole even that same hour. And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people raging, he said unto them, "Get you hence, for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth." And they laughed him to scorn. As soon as the people were put forth adoors, he went in and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. And this was noised throughout all that land.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that were wont to gather poll money, came to Peter and said, "Doth your Master pay tribute?"

And they entered into Capernaum, and straightway on the Sabbath days he entered into the synagogue and taught. And they marveled at his learning. For he taught them as one that had power with him, and not as the scribes did. And there was in their synagogue, a man vexed with an unclean spirit, and that cried read more.
saying, "Let me be: what have we to do with thou, Jesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroy us? I know thee, what thou art, thou art even that holy man promised of God." And Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Hold thy peace and come out of him." And the unclean spirit tare him, and cried out with a loud voice, and came out of him. And they were all amazed, insomuch that they demanded one of another among themselves, saying, "What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For he commandeth the foul spirits with power, and they obey him." And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region bordering on Galilee. And forthwith, as soon as they were come out of the Synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. And Simon's mother-in-law lay sick of a fever, and anon they told him of her. And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever forsook her by and by: And she ministered unto them. And at even, when the sun was down, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils, and all the city gathered together at the door, and he healed many that were sick of divers diseases. And he cast out many devils; and suffered them not to speak, because they knew him. And in the morning, very early, Jesus arose and went out into a solitary place, and there prayed. And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. And when they had found him, they said unto him, "All men seek for thee." And he said unto them, "Let us go in to the next towns, that I may preach there also: for truly I came out for that purpose. And he preached in their synagogues, throughout all Galilee, and cast the devils out. And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeled down unto him, and said unto him, "If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean." And Jesus had compassion on him, and put forth his hand, touched him, and said unto him, "I will, be thou clean." And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. And he charged him and sent him away forthwith and said unto him, "See that thou say nothing to any man, but get thee hence and show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimonial unto them." But he, as soon as he was departed, began to tell many things and to publish the deed, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places, and they came to him from every quarter.

And he entered again into the synagogue, and there was a man there which had a withered hand: and they watched him, to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath day, that they might accuse him. And he said unto the man which had the withered hand, "Arise and stand in the midst." read more.
And he said to them, "Whether is it lawful? To do a good deed on the Sabbath day, or an evil? To save a man's life, or to kill?" But they held their peace. And he looked round about on them, angrily mourning on the blindness of their hearts. And said to the man, "Stretch forth thine hand." And he stretched it out: And his hand was restored, even as whole as the other. And the Pharisees departed, and straightway gathered a counsel, with them that belonged to Herod, against him: that they might destroy him.

When he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. And the servant of a certain Centurion was sick, and ready to die, whom he made much of. And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. read more.
And they came to Jesus and besought him instantly, saying, "He is worthy that thou shouldest do this for him. For he loveth our nation, and hath built us a synagogue." And Jesus went with them. And when he was not far from the house, the Centurion sent to him his friends, saying unto him, "Lord trouble not thyself, for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof. Wherefore I thought not myself worthy to come unto thee: but say the word and my servant shall be whole. For I likewise am a man under power, and have under me soldiers, and I say unto one, 'Go': and he goeth. And to another, 'Come': and he cometh. And to my servant, 'Do this': and he doeth it." When Jesus heard this, he marveled at him, and turned him about and said to the people that followed him, "I say unto you, I have not found so great faith: No, not in Israel, certainly." And they that were sent, turned back home again, and found the servant that was sick whole.

And Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he turned water into wine. And there was a certain ruler, whose son was sick at Capernaum. As soon as the same heard that Jesus was come out of Jewry, into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him, that he would descend, and heal his son: For he was even ready to die. Then said Jesus unto him, "Except ye see signs and wonders, ye cannot believe." read more.
The ruler said unto him, "Sir, come away or ever that my child die." Jesus said unto him, "Go thy way, thy son liveth." And the man believed the words that Jesus had spoken unto him, and went his way. And anon as he went on his way, his servants met him, and told him, saying, "Thy child liveth." Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, "Yesterday, the seventh hour, the fever left him." And the father knew that it was the same hour in which Jesus said unto him, "Thy son liveth." And he believed, and all his household.

and entered into a ship. And went over the sea unto Capernaum. And anon it was dark, and Jesus was not come to them. And the sea arose with a great wind that blew. And when they had rowed about a twenty five or a thirty furlongs, they saw Jesus walk on the sea, and to draw nigh unto the ship, and they were afraid. read more.
And he said unto them, "It is I, be not afraid." Then would they have received him into the ship, and the ship was by and by at the land whither they went. The day following, the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other ship there save that one wherein his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not in with his disciples into the ship: but that his disciples were gone away alone. Howbeit, there came other ships from Tiberias, nigh unto the place where they ate bread, when the Lord had blessed. Then when the people saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping and came to Capernaum seeking for Jesus. And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, "Rabbi, when camest thou hither?"

These things said he in the synagogue as he taught in Capernaum.


And thou, Capernaum, which art lift up unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the miracles, which have been done in thee, had been showed in Sodom, they had remained to this day.

And thou Capernaum which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell;
