While He was yet speaking, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's, and said to Him, Thy daughter is dead, trouble not the Master.

And they were all weeping and bewailing her: but He said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed at Him, knowing that she was dead. But He turned them all out, and taking hold of her hand, called to her, saying, Child, arise. And her spirit returned, and immediately she stood up: and He ordered something to be given her to eat. And her parents were exceedingly astonished: but He charged them to tell no one what was done.
And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the musicians, and the people in confusion; He saith unto them, Retire; for the child is not dead, but asleep. And they laughed at Him. But when the people were put out, He went in and took hold of her hand, and the damsel rose up. read more.

And behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus; and as soon as he saw Him, he fell at his feet, and earnestly intreated Him, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death, I beseech thee that thou wouldst come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live. So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him, and pressed about Him.
While He was yet speaking, there came some from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Thy daughter is dead, why dost thou trouble the Master any more?

And He cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth a tumult, people weeping and lamenting greatly: and when He was come in, He saith unto them, Why do ye take on thus and weep? the child is not dead, but asleep. And they laughed at Him: but when He had turned them all out, He taketh the father, and the mother of the child, and those three that were with Him, and goes in where the child was laid: and taking hold of her hand, He saith unto her, Talitha, cumi, which is, being interpreted, Damsel, (I say unto thee) arise: and immediately the damsel rose up and walked; for she was twelve years old; and they were struck with great astonishment. And He strictly charged them, that no one should know it: and bid them give her something to eat.

And when He was entered into the ship, his disciples followed Him: and behold a great tempest rose on the sea, so that the vessel was even covered by the waves; but He was asleep. And His disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Lord save us, for we are perishing: and He saith unto them, read more.
Why are ye so frighted, O ye of little faith? Then He rose up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men wondered, saying, What an amazing person is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him!
And the same day, in the evening, He saith to them, Let us go over to the other side. So they dismissed the multitude, and took Him as He was in the ship. But there were other small vessels likewise with Him. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now almost full. read more.
And He was in the stern asleep on a pillow: and they awake Him, and say unto Him, Master, art thou under no concern that we are perishing? And He rose and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still; and the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And He said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how! have ye no faith? And they were exceedingly afraid, and said to one another, Who is this? that even the wind and the sea obey Him?
And it came to pass on one of the days that He went into a ship, Himself and his disciples, and He said to them, Let us go over to the other side of the lake. And they launched forth: but as they were failing, He fell asleep: and a storm of wind came down upon the lake, and they were filled with water, and were in great danger.

And they came to Jericho: and as He was going out of Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimeus, the son of Timeus, sat by the way-side begging. And hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. And many rebuked him, that he might hold his peace: but he cried out so much the more, Thou son of David, have pity on me. read more.
And Jesus stopt, and ordered him to be called: so they called the blind man, and said to him, Be of good courage, rise up, He calleth thee. And he threw off his outer garment, and arose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus said to him, What dost thou desire that I should do for thee? And the blind man said to Him, Lord, that I may recover my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way, thy faith has cured thee. And he immediately recovered his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
And as they were going from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him: and behold, two blind men siting by the way-side, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. And the people rebuked them, that they might hold their peace: but they cried out the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. read more.
And Jesus stopt and called them, and said, What do ye desire me to do for you? They answered Him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. And Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes; and straightway their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
And as he was near to Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way-side begging. And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant. And they told him, Jesus of Nazareth is coming by. read more.
And he cried out, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have compassion on me. And they, that went before, rebuked him, that he might hold his peace, but he cried out the more, O Son of David, have pity on me. So Jesus stopt, and ordered him to be brought to Him: and when he was come near, He asked him, saying, What wouldst thou that I should do for thee? And he said, Lord, that I may recover my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
And presently after Jesus obliged the disciples to get into the ship, and to go before Him to the other side, while He dismissed the multitudes: and when He had dismissed them, He went up to a hill in private to pray. And in the evening He was there alone. Now the ship was by this time in the midst of the sea, and violently tossed by the waves; for the wind was contrary: read more.
but in the fourth watch of the night Jesus came to them walking on the sea: and when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were affrighted and said, It is an apparition; and they cried out for fear: but Jesus immediately spake to them, saying, Take courage, it is I, be not afraid. Then Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be thou, command me to come unto thee upon the waters. And He said, Come. And Peter went down from the ship and walked upon the waters to go to Jesus: but seeing the wind boisterous, he was afraid, and beginning to sink cried out, Lord, save me. And Jesus, immediately stretching forth his hand, laid hold of him, and saith to him, O man of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? So they got into the ship, and the wind ceased. Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, Thou art indeed the Son of God.
And immediately He obliged his disciples to get into the ship, and to go before Him to the other side to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the people: and when He had sent them away, He retired into a mountain to pray. And when the evening was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and He alone upon the land: read more.
and He saw them labouring in rowing; (for the wind was contrary:) and about the fourth watch of the night He cometh to them walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. But they seeing Him walking upon the water, thought it was an apparition, and cried out: for they all saw Him and were frighted. And He immediately spake to them, and saith, Be of good courage, it is I, be not afraid. And He went up into the ship to them, and the wind ceased, and they were exceedingly amazed in themselves, and wondered: not considering the miracle of the loaves, for their heart was stupified.
And when evening was come, his disciples went down to the sea: and having entered into a ship were going over the Sea towards Capernaum: and it was now dark, and Jesus was not yet come to them. And the sea rose high by reason of a violent wind. read more.
So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and near the ship: and they were affrighted. But He saith unto them, It is I: be not afraid. They desired therefore to take Him into the ship: and immediately the vessel was at the land to which they were going.
And when they were come to the multitude, there came to Him a man kneeling down and saying, Lord, have compassion upon my son, for he is lunatic and grievously afflicted; for he often falleth into the fire, and often into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heal him. read more.
Then Jesus answered and said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to me. And when Jesus rebuked him, the demon departed out of him, and the child was cured from that time. Then came the disciples to Jesus in private, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, because of your unbelief: for verily I tell you, if ye had but faith as a grain of mustard-seed, ye might say to this mountain, Remove from hence thither, and it shall remove: and nothing would be impossible to you. But this kind is not to be cast out but by prayer and fasting.
And when He came to the other disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes disputing with them. And immediately all the people, when they saw Him, were astonished; and running to Him, saluted Him. And he asked the scribes, What are ye disputing about? read more.
And one of the multitude answered, and said, Master I have brought unto thee my son, who is possessed by a dumb spirit: and wherever it seizeth him, it convulseth him; and he fometh, and gnasheth his teeth, and thus he pineth away: and I desired thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not. And He answered and said, O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him to me. And they brought him to Him: and as soon as he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into convulsions: and he fell upon the ground, and rolled about foming. And He asked his father, How long is it since this befel him? And he said, From a child. And it has often thrown him both into the fire and into the waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us and help us. And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And the father of the child immediately cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief. when Jesus saw the people flock together, He rebuked the impure spirit, and said to him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, Come out of him, and enter no more into him. And when he had rored and vehemently convulsed him, he came out of him: and the child was as one dead, so that many said, that he was dead. But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. And when He was come into the house, his disciples asked Him in private, Why could not we cast him out? And He said unto them, This kind cannot be cast out, but by prayer and fasting.
And the next day, when they came down from the mountain, a great multitude met Him: and one of the people cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee look upon my son, for he is my only child; and lo, a spirit seizeth him, and all on a sudden he screameth, and it convulses him with foaming; and bruising him, with much ado departs from him. read more.
And I prayed thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not. Then Jesus answered and said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and bear with you? Bring thy son hither. And as he was coming along, the devil bruised and convulsed him: but Jesus rebuked the impure spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him to his father. And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God: but while they were all wondering at the things which Jesus did, He said to his disciples,
(And lo, a woman who had had a flux of blood for twelve years, came close behind Him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she said within herself, If I can but touch his garment, I shall be cured. And Jesus turning about, and seeing her, said, Daughter be comforted, thy faith hath cured thee. And from that time the woman was healed.)
And a woman who had been in a flux twelve years, and had suffered a great deal from many physicians, and spent all that she had, and received no benefit, but rather grew worse, when she heard of Jesus, came behind Him in the croud, and touched his garment; for she said, read more.
If I can but touch his clothes, I shall be cured. And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt within herself that she was healed of the disorder. And immediately Jesus, knowing in Himself that power was gone out of Him, turned about in the croud and said, Who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto Him, Thou seest the multitude crouding about thee, and dost thou ask, Who touched me? and He looked round about to see who had done it. But the woman being afraid and trembling, as knowing what had been done in her, came and prostrated herself to Him, and told Him all the truth: and He said to her, Daughter, thy faith has saved thee; go in peace, and be healed of thy disorder.
and a woman who had been in a flux twelve years, and had spent her whole livelyhood upon physicians, but could not be healed by any, came close behind Him and touched the hem of his garment, and immediately her flux was stopt. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied it, Peter, and those that were with him, said, Sir, the multitudes throng and press thee, and dost thou ask, Who was it that touched me? read more.
And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive a peculiar virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not concealed, she came trembling, and fell down to Him, and declared before all the people, for what reason she had touched Him, and how she was healed immediately. And He said unto her, Daughter, be comforted, thy faith has healed thee, go in peace.)
And He rose up and went out of the synagogue, and came into the house of Simon: now Simon's wife's mother had a violent fever, and they intreated Him on her behalf. And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever, and it left her: and immediately she arose and waited upon them.
And as soon as they came out of the synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew, together with James and John. And Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever: and they immediately told Him of her: and He came to her, and taking her by the hand raised her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she waited upon them.
And when Jesus came to Peter's house. He saw his wife's mother lying ill of a fever: and He did but touch her hand, and the fever left her; and she rose up and waited on them. And when it was evening they brought to him many demoniacs: and he cast out the evil spirits with a word, and healed all that were ill: that it might be fulfilled, read more.
which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, He took our infirmities himself, and bore our diseases.
And when He was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two demoniacs coming out from the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no one could pass by that way: and they cried out, saying, What have we to do with Thee, Jesus thou Son of God? Art Thou come hither to torment us before the time? Now there was at some distance from them a large herd of swine seeding: and the devils besought Him, read more.
saying, If Thou cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine: and He said unto them, Go: and they came out and went away into the herd of swine; and lo, all the herd of swine ran furiously down a precipice into the sea, and perished in the waters. And they that were feeding them fled, and went away into the city, and related all these things, as also concerning the demoniacs. And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they intreated Him to depart from their coasts.
And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when He was come out of the ship, immediately there met Him from the tombs, a man with an impure spirit, who kept among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains: read more.
for he had often been bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been pulled asunder by him, and the fetters broken; and no man could tame him: and he was always night and day upon the hills and among the sepulchres bawling, and gashing himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped Him, and crying out with a loud voice said, Jesus thou Son of the most high God, what have I to do with thee? I adjure thee by God, that thou wouldst not torment me: (for He said to him, Thou impure spirit, come out of the man.) And He asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he earnestly intreated Him, that He would not send them out of that country. Now there was a great herd of swine feeding upon the mountains: and all the demons intreated Him, saying, Send us to the swine, that we may enter into them. And immediately Jesus permitted them: and the impure spirits went out of the man, and entered into the swine; and the herd (which were about two thousand,) ran violently down a precipice into the sea, and were suffocated. And they that were feeding the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what was done: and they come to Jesus, and see the demoniac, who had been possessed by the legion, sitting and clothed, and in his right mind; and they were afraid. And when those that saw it told them what had happened to the demoniac, and concerning the swine, they intreated Him to depart from their borders. And as He went into the ship, the demoniac intreated Him that he might be with Him: but Jesus did not permit him; but saith to him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee: and he departed, and published in Decapolis, how great things Jesus had done for him, and they were all amazed.
And they sailed to the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. And when He was landed, there met Him a man out of the city, who had been possessed by demons a long while, and wore no clothes, and abode in no dwelling but the tombs. But when he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down to Him, and said with a loud voice, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I beseech thee, do not torment me. read more.
(For He commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man; which had oftentimes seized him so violently, that tho' he was bound with chains and fetters, yet he broke the bands asunder, and was driven by the demon into those lonely places.) And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? and he said, Legion: because many demons were entred into him. And they besought Him that He would not command them to go into the abyss: but as there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain, they intreated Him that He would suffer them to enter into them, and He permitted them. So the demons went out of the man and entred into the swine: and the herd ran violently down the hill into the lake and were drowned. And when those that looked after them saw what was done they fled; and went and told it in city and country: and the people went out to see what was done, and came to Jesus; and found the man, from whom the demons were gone out, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind: and they were afraid, for those that saw it told them how the demoniac was healed. And all the people of the country round about the Gadarenes desired Him to depart from them; for they were seized with great fear: and He went into the ship and returned. Now the man from whom the demons were gone out, prayed Him to let him be with Him: but Jesus sent him away, saying, Return home, and relate what God hath done for thee. So he went away publishing through the whole city what great things Jesus had done to him.
And impure spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried out, saying, Thou art the Son of God:
And as they were going out, there was brought to Him a dumb man, a demoniac: and when the demon was cast out, the dumb man spake; and the multitudes were amazed, saying, there had never been seen the like in Israel:
Then was brought to Him a demoniac, who was blind and dumb; and he healed Him, so that the blind and dumb man both spake and saw: and all the multitudes were amazed, and said, "Is not this the Son of David?" which the pharisees hearing, said, "He only casts out demons by the help of Beelzebub the prince of the devils." read more.
But Jesus, who well knew their thoughts, said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself becomes desolate; and no city, or family, divided against itself can stand: if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by the power of Beelzebub, by whom do your own people cast them out? wherefore they shall be your judges: but if I by the Spirit of God cast out devils, then certainly the kingdom of God is come unto you. Or, how can any one enter into the house of a strong man, and take away his goods, unless he first overpower the strong man? and then indeed he may strip his house. He that is not with me, is against me; and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth. Wherefore, I tell you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men; but the blasphemy against the holy Spirit shall not be forgiven them: and if any one speak against the Son of man, it may be forgiven him: but if any one speak against the holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this life, nor in that to come. Either allow the tree to be good, and it's fruit good; or shew the tree to be corrupt, and it's fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by it's fruit. O race of vipers, how can ye speak good things, who are yourselves so wicked? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart produceth good things; and a wicked man out of the wicked treasure uttereth wicked things: but I tell you, that of every idle word, which men shall speak, they shall give an account in the day of judgement; for by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
And He was casting out a demon, and it was dumb: and when the demon was gone out, the dumb man spake; and the people wondered. But some of them said, He casteth out demons by Beelzebub the prince of demons:
Now as he came down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold a leper came and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst cleanse me: and Jesus stretched out his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou cleansed: and immediately his leprosy was cleansed. read more.
And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no one; but go, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
And there came to Him a leper, beseeching Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying unto Him, If thou wilt, thou canst cleanse me: and Jesus, being moved with compassion, stretched out his hand and touched him, and saith unto Him, I will; be thou healed: and as soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was healed. read more.
And he gave him a strict charge, and immediately dismissed him, and saith unto him, See thou tell no man: but go, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy purification what Moses has commanded, for a testimony to them. But when he was gone he began to publish it much, and to spread abroad the report: so that Jesus could no more go openly into the city, but kept out in country places: and they came to Him from all parts.
And when He was in one of the cities of that country, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus, fell prostrate to Him, and besought Him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst cleanse me. And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, I will; be thou cleansed: and immediately the leprosy departed from him. And He charged him to tell no one: but go, said He, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. read more.
But the fame of Him spread more and more, and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by Him of their infirmities. But He frequently retired into solitary places, and prayed.
And he went away and came into their synagogue: and there being a man there who had a withered hand, they asked Him, if it were lawful to heal on the sabbath-days? that they might accuse Him. But He said unto them, What man of you shall have one of his sheep fall into a pit on the sabbath-day, and will not lay hold of it and lift it out? read more.
And of how much more worth is a man than a sheep? Sure then it is lawful to do good on the sabbath-days. Then saith He to the man, Stretch out thine hand: and he stretched it out, and it was made sound like the other.
And He went another time into a synagogue, where there was a man that had a withered hand: and they watched Him, whether He would heal him on the sabbath-day, that they might accuse Him. And He said to the man, that had the withered hand, Rise up into the midst: read more.
then saith He to them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? but they were silent. And when He had looked round upon them with indignation, being grieved at the hardness of their hearts, He saith to the man, Stretch out thine hand: and he stretched it out, and his hand was made as sound as the other.
And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that He went into a synagogue and taught; and there was a man there, whose right hand was withered. And the scribes and pharisees watched Him to see if He would work a cure on the sabbath: that they might find an accusation against Him. But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man that had the withered hand, Rise, and stand in the midst: and he rose up and stood forth. read more.
Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing, Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to let it be lost? And looking round upon them all, He said to the man, Stretch out thine hand: and he did so, and his hand was made as sound as the other. And they were filled with confusion: and consulted together, what they might do to Jesus.
And He entered into the ship and passed over, and came to his own city: and behold, they brought to Him one that had the palsy laid on a couch: and Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, Take heart my son, for thy sins are forgiven thee. Upon which, some of the scribes said in themselves, This man blasphemeth: but Jesus knowing their surmises, read more.
said to them, Why think ye evil in your hearts? For which is easier? To say, thy sins be forgiven thee? or to say, rise up and walk? but that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, Arise (saith He then to the paralytic) and take up thy couch, and go away to thy house. And he rose up and went away to his own house. But when the multitudes saw it, they were amazed, and glorified God, who had given such power to men.
And after some days He went again into Capernaum; and it being heard that He was in the house, great numbers were immediately gathered together, so that there was no more room to contain them, not even about the door: and as he was preaching the word unto them, there came some to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men: read more.
and not being able to come near to Him for the croud, they uncovered the roof where He was, and when they had made an openning, they let down the couch on which the paralytic was laid. And Jesus, seeing their faith, saith to him that had the palsy, Son, thy sins are forgiven thee. But there were some of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God? And Jesus, who knew immediately in his spirit that they were thus reasoning within themselves, said unto them, Why do ye dispute these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, Thy sins are forgiven; or to say, Rise, take up thy couch, and walk? But that ye may know, that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, I say unto thee (saith He to the paralytic,) Arise, and take up thy couch, and go thy way to thine own house. And he instantly arose, and taking up his couch, went out before them all, so that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, we never saw the like.
And one day, as He was teaching, there were pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present to heal the people: and behold, some men bringing on a couch a man that was paralytic; and they endeavoured to bring him in, and lay him before Him: but when they could not find what way to bring him in because of the croud, they went up on the battlements of the house, and let him down from the roof with his couch, into the midst before Jesus, read more.
who seeing their faith said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. And the scribes and pharisees began to cavil, saying, Who is this that talketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God? but Jesus knowing their thoughts, answered and said unto them, What are ye disputing in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee, or to say, Rise up and walk? but that ye may know, that the Son of man hath power even on earth to forgive sins, (He spake to the paralytic) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go to thine house. And immediately he rose up before them, took up the bed on which he lay, and went away to his house, glorifying God. And they were all amazed and glorified God, and were filled with awe, saying, we have seen wonderful things to-day.
And He left them and went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there. Now in the morning as He was returning to the city, He was hungry; and seeing a fig-tree by the way, He went up to it, and finding nothing upon it but leaves, He saith to it, Let no fruit ever hereafter grow out of thee: and the fig-tree withered immediately. read more.
And the disciples seeing it were amazed and said, How suddenly is the fig-tree withered! but Jesus answering said unto them, Verily I tell you, if ye have faith and doubt not, ye shall not only be able to do this to a fig-tree, but also if ye shall say to this mountain, "Be thou removed and cast into the sea," it shall be done. And all things whatsoever ye ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
And on the morrow, as they came from Bethany, He was hungry: and seeing a fig-tree at a distance, with leaves, He went to see if He might find any thing upon it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; (for the time of gathering figs was not yet come:) And Jesus spake and said unto it, Let no one ever eat fruit of thee hereafter. And his disciples heard it.
And in the morning, as they were passing by it, they saw the fig-tree withered from the roots. And Peter remembring the tree, saith unto Him, Master, behold, the fig-tree which thou cursedst, is withered. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God: for verily I tell you, read more.
that whosoever shall say to this mountain, "Be thou removed and cast into the sea," and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith shall be done, he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye ask in prayer, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
And Jesus went from thence, and retired into the parts adjacent to Tyre and Sidon. And there came out of those quarters a Canaanitish woman, and cried to Him saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; for my daughter is grievously tormented by a demon. But he answered her not a word: and his disciples came and intreated Him, saying, Send her away, for she crieth importunately after us. read more.
But he answered and said, I am sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. However, she came and worshipped Him, saying, Lord help me. But he answered, It is not fit to take the children's bread and throw it to dogs: and she said, True, Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters. Then Jesus answering, said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it therefore unto thee as thou desirest. And her daughter was cured from that very hour.
And He arose and went from thence to the borders of Tyre and Sidon; and going into a house He would have had no body know it, but He could not be concealed: for a woman, whose child was possessed by an evil spirit, having heard of Him, came and fell at his feet, (now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation,) and she besought Him to cast out the demon from her daughter. read more.
But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be satisfied: for it is not fit to take the children's bread, and throw it to the dogs. And she answered and said unto Him, True, Lord, yet the dogs under the table, eat of the children's crumbs. And He said unto her, For this saying, go thy way, the demon is gone out of thy daughter. And she went away to her house, and found the demon gone out, and her daughter laid on the bed.
And there was in their synagogue a man with an impure spirit, and he cried out, saying, Let us alone, what have we to do with thee, Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee, who thou art, the holy one of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Be silent, and come out of him: and the impure spirit threw him into convulsions, read more.
and roaring with a loud voice, came out of him.
And there was a man in the synagogue possessed by the spirit of an impure demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying, Let us alone, what hast thou to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know who thou art, the holy one of God: but Jesus rebuked him, saying, Be silent, and come out of him. And the demon threw him down in the midst of the assembly, and came out of him, having done him no hurt. read more.
And they were all amazed, and said one to another, What a speech is this? for with authority and power He commandeth the impure spirits, and they come out!
Then Jesus called his disciples to Him and said, I am moved with compassion to the multitude, for they have been with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: I will not let them go away fasting, least they faint in the way. And his disciples replied, Whence can we have so much bread in this desert place as to satisfy so great a multitude? And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? and they said, Seven, and a few small fishes. read more.
Then He bid the people sit down on the ground; and taking the seven loaves and the fishes, when He had given thanks, He brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were satisfied: and they took up what was left even of fragments seven baskets full. Now they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children. Then he dismissed the multitudes, and went into a ship, and came to the coasts of Magdala.
In those days, there being again a very great multitude, and they having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to Him, and saith unto them, I have compassion on the multitude, for they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: and if I send them away fasting to their own home, they will faint by the way; for some of them are come from far. read more.
And his disciples answered Him, From whence can one satisfy these people with bread here in a desert? And He asked them, How many loaves have ye? and they said, Seven. And He ordered the people to sit down upon the ground: and taking the seven loaves, He gave thanks and brake them, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the multitude. And they had a few small fishes: and He blessed them, and bid them set them also before the people. And they did eat and were satisfied: and they took up what were left, to wit of fragments seven baskets: and they that had eaten were about four thousand. And then He dismissed them.
Now when He had finished his discourse in the audience of the people, He entered into Capernaum: and a certain centurion's servant, whom he had a great value for, was ill and ready to die; and having 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 when they came to Jesus, they intreated Him earnestly, saying, he is worthy of this favor: for he loveth our nation, and hath built us a synagogue. So Jesus went with them. And when He was now not far from the house, the centurion sent some of his friends to Him, saying Lord, trouble not thyself, for I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof: neither did I think myself worthy to come unto thee. But speak the word, and my servant will be recovered. For I also am a man placed under the authority of others, and have soldiers under me; and I say to one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doth it. And when Jesus heard these things, He marvelled, and turning about, said to the multitude that followed Him, I declare unto you, I have not found so great faith, no not in Israel. And when they that were sent, returned to the house, they found the servant well, that had been sick.
And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him a centurion beseeching Him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth in my house ill of the palsy, grievously afflicted: and Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. read more.
But the centurion answering said, Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst come under my roof, but speak the word, and my servant will be healed: for I also am a man under the authority of others, yet have soldiers under me; and I say to one, go, and he goeth; and to another, come, and he cometh; and to my servant, do this, and he doth it. And when Jesus heard it He marvelled, and said to them that followed Him, Verily, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith even in Israel: but I tell you, that many shall come from the east and from the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven; and the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into the outer darkness; where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said to the centurion, Go, and be it unto thee as thou hast believed. And his servant was healed in that very hour.
And as He was going to Jerusalem, He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee; and as He entered into a certain village, there met Him ten men that were lepers: who stood at a distance, and lifted up their voice, saying, Jesus master, have pity on us. read more.
And when He saw them, He said unto them, Go and shew yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass as they were going, they were cleansed. And one of them, perceiving that he was healed, returned, with a loud voice glorifying God: and fell prostrate at his feet, giving Him thanks; and He was a Samaritan. And Jesus answered and said, Were not all the ten cleansed? and where are the other nine? Are there none returning to give glory to God, but this stranger? And He said to him, Arise, go thy way; thy faith hath saved thee.
And when they were come to Capernaum, the receivers of the tribute-money came to Peter and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? Yes, saith he. And when he came into the house, Jesus prevented him and said, What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? Of their own children, or of other people? Peter saith unto Him, Of others. Jesus answered him, Then are the children free: read more.
but that we may not give them offence, go to the sea-side and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up, and open its mouth, and thou shalt find a piece of money: that take and give them for me and thee.
And when He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath-day, there was a woman that had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and utterly unable to lift herself upright. And when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him, and said to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. read more.
And He laid his hands upon her; and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. But the ruler of the synagogue, being provoked that Jesus had wrought a cure on the sabbath-day, said to the people, There are six days in which ye ought to work; on these therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath-day. The Lord therefore answered him and said, Thou hypocrite, does not any of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall and lead him away to watering? And might not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath-day? Upon his saying this, all his adversaries were ashamed: but the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.
Now there was a certain person sick, to wit, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and Martha her sister. (And it was Mary, that anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) His sisters therefore sent to Him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. read more.
But when Jesus heard it, He said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. Therefore when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed indeed two days in the place where He was: and after that He saith to his disciples, Let us go again into Judea. The disciples say unto Him, Master, the Jews very lately attempted to stone thee, and art thou going thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? if any man walk in the day, he doth not stumble; for he seeth the light of this world: but if any one walk in the night, he stumbleth; because he hath no light. Having thus answered them, He afterwards saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus is asleep; but I am going to awake him. Therefore his disciples said, Lord, if he sleep, he will do well. But Jesus spake of his death; though they thought that He was speaking of the refreshment of sleep. Then Jesus said to them plainly, Lazarus is dead: and I am glad for your sakes, I was not there, that ye may believe: but let us go to him. Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow-disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him. And when Jesus came, He found that he had been four days in the grave. Now Bethany was near to Jerusalem, being but about fifteen furlongs from it: and many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. Therefore Martha, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him: but Mary was sitting in the house. And Martha said unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know that even now whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will grant it thee. Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto Him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus then told her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth on me, though he were dead, shall live again. And every one that is alive, and believeth in me, shall never die. Dost thou believe this? She saith unto Him, Yes, Lord, I believe that thou art the Messiah, the Son of God, who was to come into the world. And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister, telling her privately, The Master is coming and calleth for thee. As soon as she heard it, she gets up with all speed and comes to Him. For Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in the place where Martha met Him. The Jews therefore that were with her in the house to comfort her, seeing Mary that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She is going to the grave to weep there. Then Mary, when she came where Jesus was and saw Him, fell down at his feet, saying unto Him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. Jesus therefore, when He saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping, that came with her, groaned in spirit and was troubled. And He said, Where have ye laid him? They say unto Him, Lord, come and see: and Jesus wept. The Jews therefore said, Behold, how he loved him! but some of them said, Could not He, who opened the eyes of the blind, have caused also that this man should not have died? Jesus therefore, again groaning in himself, cometh to the sepulchre: which was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus saith, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of the deceased, saith unto Him, Lord, by this time he is offensive; for it is the fourth day. Jesus saith unto her, Did I not tell thee, that if thou believest, thou shalt see the glory of God? So they took away the stone from the place where the corpse was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, Father, I thank Thee, that Thou hast heard me. I knew indeed that Thou always hearest me: but because of the people standing by I say this, that they may believe that Thou hast sent me. And when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that had been dead came forth, having his feet and hands rolled up in grave-cloths: and his face bound about with a napkin. Then Jesus bid them, Loosen him and let him go. Therefore many of the Jews, that came to Mary and saw what Jesus did, believed on Him. But some of them went to the pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.
But when they that were about Him saw what would follow, they said to Him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? And one of them smote the high priest's servant and cut off his right ear: but Jesus said, Suffer ye thus far; and He touched his ear and healed him.
Therefore Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum: who, when he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, went to Him, and intreated Him, that he would come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death. Jesus therefore said unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders ye will not believe. read more.
The nobleman saith unto Him, Lord, come down before my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go, thy son is well. And the man believed what Jesus said unto him, and went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, Thy son is well. He inquired therefore of them the hour in which he grew better: and they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. So the father knew that it was in that same hour, in which Jesus said to him, Thy son is well. And he and his whole family believed. This is the second miracle that Jesus wrought, upon coming out of Judea into Galilee.
And the day after He went to a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with Him, and a great multitude besides: and as He came near to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carrying out to be buried, his mother's only son, and she was a widow: and many of the people of the city were with her. And when the Lord saw her, He was moved with compassion for her, and said to her, Do not weep. read more.
And He came up and touched the bier, (and the bearers stopped,) and He said, Young man, I say unto thee, arise. And the dead person sat up, and began to speak: and He delivered him to his mother. And an awe seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, a great prophet is risen up among us, and God hath visited his people.
And as Jesus was going from thence, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, Have compassion on us, O Son of David. And when He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus saith unto them, Do ye believe that I am able to do this? and they say unto Him, Yes Lord. Then he touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it done unto you: and their eyes were opened. read more.
And Jesus strictly charged them, saying, Do not divulge it: but they went out and spread his fame through all that country.
After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is at Jerusalem near the sheep-market a pool, called in Hebrew Bethesda, with five porticos about it. In these lay a great number of people that were infirm, blind, lame, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. read more.
For an angel descended at a certain season into the pool, and moved the water; the first therefore that went in after the disturbing of the water, was cured of whatever malady he laboured under. And there was a man who had been under illness thirty eight years. Jesus seeing him lie there, and knowing that he had been now a long time ill, saith unto him, Dost thou desire to be cured? The infirm man answered Him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is moved, to put me into the pool; but while I am coming, another goes down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was cured: and he took up his bed and walked. Now this was the sabbath-day, therefore the Jews said to him that was cured, It is the sabbath, it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. He answered them, He, that made me well, said unto me, Take up thy bed and walk. Therefore they asked him, Who is the man that said to thee, Take up thy bed and walk? but he, that was healed, did not know who it was: for Jesus had withdrawn himself, there being many people in the place. Afterwards Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, thou art healed; sin no more, least something worse befal thee. And the man went away, and told the Jews, that it was Jesus who had healed him. And for this did the Jews persecute Jesus, and endeavoured to put Him to death; because He had done these things on the sabbath-day.
And departing again out of the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, He came to the sea of Galilee thro' the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. And they brought to Him a deaf man, who had likewise an impediment in his speech, and pray Him to put his hand upon him. And He took him aside out of the croud, and He spit and put his fingers into his ears, and touched his tongue: read more.
and looking up to heaven He sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, be opened: and immediately his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake distinctly. And He charged them to tell no one, but the more He charged them, the more they published it: and were exceedingly astonished, saying, He hath done all things well; he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
And on the third day after, there was a marriage at Cana of Galilee: and the mother of Jesus was there. And Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding. And the wine falling short, the mother of Jesus saith unto Him, They have no wine. read more.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? my time is not yet come. His mother saith to the servants, Whatsoever he ordereth you to do, do it. And there were six stone waterpots, placed according to the custom of purifying among the Jews, containing each about two or three firkins. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the water-pots with water: and they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and carry it to the master of the feast. And they carried it to him. And when the manager of the feast had tasted the water which was made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the servants, that drew the water, knew,) he called the bride-groom, and saith unto him, Every man sets out good wine at first, and when they have drank plentifully, then that which is worse; but thou hast keep the good wine till now. This beginning of his miracles Jesus wrought at Cana of Galilee, and made manifest his glory: and his disciples believed on Him.
Then He cometh to Bethsaida, where they brought to Him a blind man, and begged of Him that He would touch him. And He took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and having spit on his eyes, He laid his hands upon him, and asked him, If he saw any thing. And he looked up, and said, I see men (as it were trees) walking. read more.
Then He put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored to sight, and saw them all plainly. And He sent him away to his house, and said, Neither go into the town, nor tell any one in the town.
And as He went into the house of one of the chief of the pharisees to eat on the sabbath-day, and they were watching Him, behold, there was a certain man before Him that had a dropsy. And Jesus spake to the expounders of the law and to the pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath-day? read more.
but they made no answer. And He took him and healed him, and sent him away: and said unto them, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fall into a pit, and will not immediately draw him out even on the sabbath-day? and they were not able to answer Him again to these things.
And when the people were pressing on Him to hear the word of God, as He stood by the lake of Gennesareth, seeing two vessels at the edge of the lake, (but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets:) He went into one of them, which was Simon's, and desired him to put off a little way from the shore: and He sat down and taught the multitudes from the ship. read more.
And when He had done speaking, He said to Simon, Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answered and said unto Him, Master, we have been toiling all the night, and have caught nothing; however at thy word I will cast the net. And when they had done this, they inclosed a multitude of fishes; and their net was breaking. And they beckoned to their partners that were in the other ship, to come and help them; and they came, and filled both the ships, so that they were even sinking: and when Simon Peter saw it, he fell at the knees of Jesus, saying, Lord, depart from me, for I am a sinful man; for he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of fishes which they had taken; as were also James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, Be not afraid, from henceforth thou shalt be a captor of men. And when they had brought their ships to land, they left all and followed Him.
They answered Him, No. And He said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye will find some. So they cast it, and they were not able to draw it up by reason of the multitude of fishes.
