Luke 5

5:1 And it came to pass, that as the people pressed upon him to
 hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret.
5:2 And saw two boats standing by the lake: but the fishermen
 had gone out of them, and were washing [their] nets.
5:3 And he entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and
 prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And
 he sat down, and taught the people out of the boat.
5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said to Simon, Lanch out
 into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5:5 And Simon answering said to him, Master, we have toiled all
 the night, and have taken nothing; nevertheless, at thy word I
 will let down the net.
5:6 And when they had done this, they inclosed a great multitude
 of fishes: and their net broke.
5:7 And they beckoned to [their] partners, who were in the other
 boat, that they should come and help them. And they came, and
 filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
5:8 When Simon Peter saw [it], he fell down at Jesus' knees,
 saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
5:9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the
 draught of the fishes which they had taken:
5:10 And so [was] also James and John the sons of Zebedee, who
 were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, Fear not:
 from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
5:11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook
 all, and followed him.
5:12 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold,
 a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus, fell on [his] face,
 and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make
 me clean.
5:13 And he put forth [his] hand, and touched him, saying, I
 will: Be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from
5:14 And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and show thyself
 to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses
 commanded for a testimony to them.
5:15 But so much the more a fame of him went abroad: and great
 multitudes came together to hear and to be healed by him of
 their infirmities.
5:16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
5:17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching,
 that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by,
 who had come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and
 Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was [present] to heal
5:18 And behold, men brought in a bed a man who was taken with
 the palsy: and they sought [means] to bring him in, and to lay
 [him] before him.
5:19 And when they could not find by what [way] they might bring
 him in, because of the multitude, they went upon the house-top,
 and let him down through the tiling with [his] couch, into the
 midst before Jesus.
5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said to him, Man, thy sins
 are forgiven thee.
5:21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying,
 Who is this who speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but
 God alone?
5:22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering, said
 to them, What reason ye in your hearts?
5:23 Which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to
 say, Rise and walk?
5:24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon
 earth to forgive sins, He said to the sick with the palsy, I
 say to thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thy
5:25 And immediately he arose before them, and took up that on
 which he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.
5:26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were
 filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to-day.
5:27 And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican
 named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said to
 him, Follow me.
5:28 And he left all, arose, and followed him.
5:29 And Levi made him a great feast in his own house; and there
 was a great company of publicans, and of others that sat down
 with them.
5:30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his
 disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and
5:31 And Jesus answering, said to them, They that are well need
 not a physician; but they that are sick.
5:32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to
5:33 And they said to him, Why do the disciples of John fast
 often, and make prayers, and likewise [the disciples] of the
 Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?
5:34 And he said to them, Can ye make the children of the
 bride-chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
5:35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken
 from them, and then they will fast in those days.
5:36 And he spoke also a parable to them: No man putteth a piece
 of a new garment upon an old: if otherwise, then both the new
 maketh a rent, and the piece that was [taken] out of the new,
 agreeth not with the old.
5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new
 wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles
 will perish.
5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles, and both are
5:39 No man also having drank old [wine], immediately desireth
 new: for he saith, The old is better.
