King James VersionMatthew9


1 And he en­tered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city. 2 And, be­hold, they brought to him a man sick of the pal­sy, ly­ing on a bed: and Je­sus see­ing their faith said unto the sick of the pal­sy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be for­giv­en thee. 3 And, be­hold, cer­tain of the scribes said with­in them­selves, This man blas­phemeth. 4 And Je­sus know­ing their thoughts said, Where­fore think ye evil in your hearts? 5 For whether is eas­i­er, to say, Thy sins be for­giv­en thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath pow­er on earth to for­give sins, (then saith he to the sick of the pal­sy, ) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. 7 And he arose, and de­part­ed to his house. 8 But when the mul­ti­tudes saw it, they mar­velled, and glo­ri­fied God, which had giv­en such pow­er unto men. 9 And as Je­sus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sit­ting at the re­ceipt of cus­tom: and he saith unto him, Fol­low me. And he arose, and fol­lowed him. 10 And it came to pass, as Je­sus sat at meat in the house, be­hold, many pub­li­cans and sin­ners came and sat down with him and his dis­ci­ples. 11 And when the Phar­isees saw it, they said unto his dis­ci­ples, Why eateth your Mas­ter with pub­li­cans and sin­ners? 12 But when Je­sus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physi­cian, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mer­cy, and not sac­ri­fice: for I am not come to call the righ­teous, but sin­ners to re­pen­tance. 14 Then came to him the dis­ci­ples of John, say­ing, Why do we and the Phar­isees fast oft, but thy dis­ci­ples fast not? 15 And Je­sus said unto them, Can the chil­dren of the bridecham­ber mourn, as long as the bride­groom is with them? but the days will come, when the bride­groom shall be tak­en from them, and then shall they fast. 16 No man put­teth a piece of new cloth unto an old gar­ment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the gar­ment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Nei­ther do men put new wine into old bot­tles: else the bot­tles break, and the wine run­neth out, and the bot­tles per­ish: but they put new wine into new bot­tles, and both are pre­served. 18 While he spake these things unto them, be­hold, there came a cer­tain ruler, and wor­shipped him, say­ing, My daugh­ter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. 19 And Je­sus arose, and fol­lowed him, and ­so did his dis­ci­ples. 20 And, be­hold, a wom­an, which was dis­eased with an is­sue of blood twelve years, came be­hind him, and touched the hem of his gar­ment: 21 For she said with­in her­self, If I may but touch his gar­ment, I shall be whole. 22 But Je­sus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daugh­ter, be of good com­fort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the wom­an was made whole from that hour. 23 And when Je­sus came into the ruler's house, and saw the min­strels and the peo­ple mak­ing a noise, 24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleep­eth. And they laughed him to scorn. 25 But when the peo­ple were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And the fame here­of went abroad into all that land. 27 And when Je­sus de­part­ed thence, two blind men fol­lowed him, cry­ing, and say­ing, Thou Son of David, have mer­cy on us. 28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Je­sus saith unto them, Be­lieve ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. 29 Then touched he their eyes, say­ing, Ac­cord­ing to your faith be it unto you. 30 And their eyes were opened; and Je­sus strait­ly charged them, say­ing, See that no man know it. 31 But they, when they were de­part­ed, spread abroad his fame in all that coun­try. 32 As they went out, be­hold, they brought to him a dumb man pos­sessed with a dev­il. 33 And when the dev­il was cast out, the dumb spake: and the mul­ti­tudes mar­velled, say­ing, It was nev­er so seen in Is­rael. 34 But the Phar­isees said, He casteth out dev­ils through the prince of the dev­ils. 35 And Je­sus went about all the cities and vil­lages, teach­ing in their syn­a­gogues, and preach­ing the gospel of the king­dom, and heal­ing ev­ery sick­ness and ev­ery dis­ease among the peo­ple. 36 But when he saw the mul­ti­tudes, he was moved with com­pas­sion on them, be­cause they faint­ed, and were scat­tered abroad, as sheep hav­ing no shep­herd. 37 Then saith he unto his dis­ci­ples, The har­vest tru­ly is plen­teous, but the labour­ers are few; 38 Pray ye there­fore the Lord of the har­vest, that he will send forth labour­ers into his har­vest.
