Mark 2

2:1 And again he entered into Capernaum, after [some] days; and
 it was understood that he was in the house.
2:2 And forthwith many were assembled, so that there was no room
 to receive [them], no not so much as about the door: and he
 preached the word to them.
2:3 And they come to him, bringing one sick with the palsy, who
 was borne by four.
2:4 And when they could not come nigh to him by reason of the
 crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had
 broken [it] up, they let down the bed on which the sick with
 the palsy lay.
2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the sick with the
 palsy, Son, thy sins are forgiven thee.
2:6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and
 reasoning in their hearts,
2:7 Why doth this [man] thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive
 sins but God only?
2:8 And immediately, when Jesus perceived in his spirit that
 they so reasoned within themselves, he said to them, Why reason
 ye these things in your hearts?
2:9 Which is easier, to say to the sick with the palsy, [Thy]
 sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed,
 and walk?
2:10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on
 earth to forgive sins, he saith to the sick with the palsy,
2:11 I say to thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go into thy
2:12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth
 before them all; so that they were all amazed, and glorified
 God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
2:13 And he went forth again by the sea-[side]; and all the
 multitude resorted to him, and he taught them.
2:14 And as he passed by, he saw Levi the [son] of Alpheus,
 sitting at the receipt of custom, and said to him, Follow me.
 And he arose, and followed him.
2:15 And it came to pass, that as Jesus sat at table in his
 house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus
 and his disciples; for there were many, and they followed him.
2:16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eating with
 publicans and sinners, they said to his disciples, How is it
 that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners.
2:17 When Jesus heard [it], he saith to them, They that are in
 health, have no need of a physician, but they that are sick; I
 came not to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.
2:18 And the disciples of John, and of the Pharisees, used to
 fast: and they come, and say to him, Why do the disciples of
 John, and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
2:19 And Jesus said to them, Can the children of the
 bride-chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? As long
 as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
2:20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken
 from them, and then they will fast in those days.
2:21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment:
 else the new piece that filled it up, taketh away from the old,
 and the rent is made worse.
2:22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles, else the new
 wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the
 bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new
2:23 And it came to pass, that he went through the corn-fields
 on the sabbath; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck
 the ears of corn.
2:24 And the Pharisees said to him, Behold, why do they on the
 sabbath that which is not lawful?
2:25 And he said to them, Have ye never read what David did,
 when he had need, and was hungry, he and they that were with
2:26 How he went into the house of God, in the days of Abiathar
 the high priest, and ate the show-bread, which it is not lawful
 to eat, but for the priests, and gave also to them who were
 with him?
2:27 And he said to them, The sabbath was made for man, and not
 man for the sabbath:
2:28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
