Chapter 1:80 Verses
42-1:1 Seeing that many did take in hand to set in order a narration of the matters that have been fully assured among us,
42-1:2 as they did deliver to us, who from the beginning became eye-witnesses, and officers of the Word, --
42-1:3 it seemed good also to me, having followed from the first after all things exactly, to write to thee in order, most noble Theophilus,
42-1:4 that thou mayest know the certainty of the things wherein thou wast instructed.
42-1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest, by name Zacharias, of the course of Abijah, and his wife of the daughters of Aaron, and her name Elisabeth;
42-1:6 and they were both righteous before God, going on in all the commands and righteousnesses of the Lord blameless,
42-1:7 and they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and both were advanced in their days.
42-1:8 And it came to pass, in his acting as priest, in the order of his course before God,
42-1:9 according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot was to make perfume, having gone into the sanctuary of the Lord,
42-1:10 and all the multitude of the people were praying without, at the hour of the perfume.
42-1:11 And there appeared to him a messenger of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of the perfume,
42-1:12 and Zacharias, having seen, was troubled, and fear fell on him;
42-1:13 and the messenger said unto him, `Fear not, Zacharias, for thy supplication was heard, and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear a son to thee, and thou shalt call his name John,
42-1:14 and there shall be joy to thee, and gladness, and many at his birth shall joy,
42-1:15 for he shall be great before the Lord, and wine and strong drink he may not drink, and of the Holy Spirit he shall be full, even from his mother's womb;
42-1:16 and many of the sons of Israel he shall turn to the Lord their God,
42-1:17 and he shall go before Him, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn hearts of fathers unto children, and disobedient ones to the wisdom of righteous ones, to make ready for the Lord, a people prepared.'
42-1:18 And Zacharias said unto the messenger, `Whereby shall I know this? for I am aged, and my wife is advanced in her days?'
42-1:19 And the messenger answering said to him, `I am Gabriel, who have been standing near before God, and I was sent to speak unto thee, and to proclaim these good news to thee,
42-1:20 and lo, thou shalt be silent, and not able to speak, till the day that these things shall come to pass, because thou didst not believe my words, that shall be fulfilled in their season.'
42-1:21 And the people were waiting for Zacharias, and wondering at his tarrying in the sanctuary,
42-1:22 and having come out, he was not able to speak to them, and they perceived that a vision he had seen in the sanctuary, and he was beckoning to them, and did remain dumb.
42-1:23 And it came to pass, when the days of his service were fulfilled, he went away to his house,
42-1:24 and after those days, his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying--
42-1:25 `Thus hath the Lord done to me, in days in which He looked upon me , to take away my reproach among men.'
42-1:26 And in the sixth month was the messenger Gabriel sent by God, to a city of Galilee, the name of which is Nazareth,
42-1:27 to a virgin, betrothed to a man, whose name is Joseph, of the house of David, and the name of the virgin is Mary.
42-1:28 And the messenger having come in unto her, said, `Hail, favoured one, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women;'
42-1:29 and she, having seen, was troubled at his word, and was reasoning of what kind this salutation may be.
42-1:30 And the messenger said to her, `Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God;
42-1:31 and lo, thou shalt conceive in the womb, and shalt bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus;
42-1:32 he shall be great, and Son of the Highest he shall be called, and the Lord God shall give him the throne of David his father,
42-1:33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob to the ages; and of his reign there shall be no end.'
42-1:34 And Mary said unto the messenger, `How shall this be, seeing a husband I do not know?'
42-1:35 And the messenger answering said to her, `The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee, therefore also the holy-begotten thing shall be called Son of God;
42-1:36 and lo, Elisabeth, thy kinswoman, she also hath conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month to her who was called barren;
42-1:37 because nothing shall be impossible with God.'
42-1:38 And Mary said, `Lo, the maid-servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to thy saying,' and the messenger went away from her.
42-1:39 And Mary having arisen in those days, went to the hill-country, with haste, to a city of Judea,
42-1:40 and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
42-1:41 And it came to pass, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe did leap in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,
42-1:42 and spake out with a loud voice, and said, `Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb;
42-1:43 and whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord might come unto me?
42-1:44 for, lo, when the voice of thy salutation came to my ears, leap in gladness did the babe in my womb;
42-1:45 and happy is she who did believe, for there shall be a completion to the things spoken to her from the Lord.'
42-1:46 And Mary said, `My soul doth magnify the Lord,
42-1:47 And my spirit was glad on God my Saviour,
42-1:48 Because He looked on the lowliness of His maid-servant, For, lo, henceforth call me happy shall all the generations,
42-1:49 For He who is mighty did to me great things, And holy is His name,
42-1:50 And His kindness is to generations of generations, To those fearing Him,
42-1:51 He did powerfully with His arm, He scattered abroad the proud in the thought of their heart,
42-1:52 He brought down the mighty from thrones, And He exalted the lowly,
42-1:53 The hungry He did fill with good, And the rich He sent away empty,
42-1:54 He received again Israel His servant, To remember kindness,
42-1:55 As He spake unto our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed--to the age.'
42-1:56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and turned back to her house.
42-1:57 And to Elisabeth was the time fulfilled for her bringing forth, and she bare a son,
42-1:58 and the neighbours and her kindred heard that the Lord was making His kindness great with her, and they were rejoicing with her.
42-1:59 And it came to pass, on the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child, and they were calling him by the name of his father, Zacharias,
42-1:60 and his mother answering said, `No, but he shall be called John.'
42-1:61 And they said unto her--`There is none among thy kindred who is called by this name,'
42-1:62 and they were making signs to his father, what he would wish him to be called,
42-1:63 and having asked for a tablet, he wrote, saying, `John is his name;' and they did all wonder;
42-1:64 and his mouth was opened presently, and his tongue, and he was speaking, praising God.
42-1:65 And fear came upon all those dwelling around them, and in all the hill-country of Judea were all these sayings spoken of,
42-1:66 and all who heard did lay them up in their hearts, saying, `What then shall this child be?' and the hand of the Lord was with him.
42-1:67 And Zacharias his father was filled with the Holy Spirit, and did prophesy, saying,
42-1:68 `Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel, Because He did look upon, And wrought redemption for His people,
42-1:69 And did raise an horn of salvation to us, In the house of David His servant,
42-1:70 As He spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, Which have been from the age;
42-1:71 Salvation from our enemies, And out of the hand of all hating us,
42-1:72 To do kindness with our fathers, And to be mindful of His holy covenant,
42-1:73 An oath that He sware to Abraham our father,
42-1:74 To give to us, without fear, Out of the hand of our enemies having been delivered,
42-1:75 To serve Him, in holiness and righteousness Before Him, all the days of our life.
42-1:76 And thou, child, Prophet of the Highest Shalt thou be called; For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord, To prepare His ways.
42-1:77 To give knowledge of salvation to His people In remission of their sins,
42-1:78 Through the tender mercies of our God, In which the rising from on high did look upon us,
42-1:79 To give light to those sitting in darkness and death-shade, To guide our feet to a way of peace.'
42-1:80 And the child grew, and was strengthened in spirit, and he was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
Chapter 2:52 Verses
42-2:1 And it came to pass in those days, there went forth a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world be enrolled--
42-2:2 this enrolment first came to pass when Cyrenius was governor of Syria--
42-2:3 and all were going to be enrolled, each to his proper city,
42-2:4 and Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, that is called Bethlehem, because of his being of the house and family of David,
42-2:5 to enrol himself with Mary his betrothed wife, being with child.
42-2:6 And it came to pass, in their being there, the days were fulfilled for her bringing forth,
42-2:7 and she brought forth her son--the first-born, and wrapped him up, and laid him down in the manger, because there was not for them a place in the guest-chamber.
42-2:8 And there were shepherds in the same region, lodging in the field, and keeping the night-watches over their flock,
42-2:9 and lo, a messenger of the Lord stood over them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they feared a great fear.
42-2:10 And the messenger said to them, `Fear not, for lo, I bring you good news of great joy, that shall be to all the people--
42-2:11 because there was born to you to-day a Saviour--who is Christ the Lord--in the city of David,
42-2:12 and this is to you the sign: Ye shall find a babe wrapped up, lying in the manger.'
42-2:13 And suddenly there came with the messenger a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying,
42-2:14 `Glory in the highest to God, and upon earth peace, among men--good will.'
42-2:15 And it came to pass, when the messengers were gone away from them to the heavens, that the men, the shepherds, said unto one another, `We may go over indeed unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that hath come to pass, that the Lord did make known to us.'
42-2:16 And they came, having hasted, and found both Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger,
42-2:17 and having seen, they made known abroad concerning the saying spoken to them concerning the child.
42-2:18 And all who heard, did wonder concerning the things spoken by the shepherds unto them;
42-2:19 and Mary was preserving all these things, pondering in her heart;
42-2:20 and the shepherds turned back, glorifying and praising God, for all those things they heard and saw, as it was spoken unto them.
42-2:21 And when eight days were fulfilled to circumcise the child, then was his name called Jesus, having been so called by the messenger before his being conceived in the womb.
42-2:22 And when the days of their purification were fulfilled, according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem, to present to the Lord,
42-2:23 as it hath been written in the Law of the Lord, --`Every male opening a womb shall be called holy to the Lord,'
42-2:24 and to give a sacrifice, according to that said in the Law of the Lord, `A pair of turtle-doves, or two young pigeons.'
42-2:25 And lo, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name is Simeon, and this man is righteous and devout, looking for the comforting of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him,
42-2:26 and it hath been divinely told him by the Holy Spirit--not to see death before he may see the Christ of the Lord.
42-2:27 And he came in the Spirit to the temple, and in the parents bringing in the child Jesus, for their doing according to the custom of the law regarding him,
42-2:28 then he took him in his arms, and blessed God, and he said,
42-2:29 `Now Thou dost send away Thy servant, Lord, according to Thy word, in peace,
42-2:30 because mine eyes did see Thy salvation,
42-2:31 which Thou didst prepare before the face of all the peoples,
42-2:32 a light to the uncovering of nations, and the glory of Thy people Israel.'
42-2:33 And Joseph and his mother were wondering at the things spoken concerning him,
42-2:34 and Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, `Lo, this one is set for the falling and rising again of many in Israel, and for a sign spoken against--
42-2:35 (and also thine own soul shall a sword pass through) --that the reasonings of many hearts may be revealed.'
42-2:36 And there was Anna, a prophetess, daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, she was much advanced in days, having lived with an husband seven years from her virginity,
42-2:37 and she is a widow of about eighty-four years, who did depart not from the temple, with fasts and supplications serving, night and day,
42-2:38 and she, at that hour, having come in, was confessing, likewise, to the Lord, and was speaking concerning him, to all those looking for redemption in Jerusalem.
42-2:39 And when they finished all things, according to the Law of the Lord, they turned back to Galilee, to their city Nazareth;
42-2:40 and the child grew and was strengthened in spirit, being filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.
42-2:41 And his parents were going yearly to Jerusalem, at the feast of the passover,
42-2:42 and when he became twelve years old, they having gone up to Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast,
42-2:43 and having finished the days, in their returning the child Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, and Joseph and his mother did not know,
42-2:44 and, having supposed him to be in the company, they went a day's journey, and were seeking him among the kindred and among the acquaintances,
42-2:45 and not having found him, they turned back to Jerusalem seeking him.
42-2:46 And it came to pass, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them and questioning them,
42-2:47 and all those hearing him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
42-2:48 And, having seen him, they were amazed, and his mother said unto him, `Child, why didst thou thus to us? lo, thy father and I, sorrowing, were seeking thee.'
42-2:49 And he said unto them, `Why is it that ye were seeking me? did ye not know that in the things of my Father it behoveth me to be?'
42-2:50 and they did not understand the saying that he spake to them,
42-2:51 and he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and he was subject to them, and his mother was keeping all these sayings in her heart,
42-2:52 and Jesus was advancing in wisdom, and in stature, and in favour with God and men.
Chapter 3:38 Verses
42-3:1 And in the fifteenth year of the government of Tiberius Caesar--Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod tetrarch of Galilee, and Philip his brother, tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene--
42-3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being chief priests--there came a word of God unto John the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness,
42-3:3 and he came to all the region round the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of reformation--to remission of sins,
42-3:4 as it hath been written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, `A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths;
42-3:5 every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straightness, and the rough become smooth ways;
42-3:6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'
42-3:7 Then said he to the multitudes coming forth to be baptised by him, `Brood of vipers! who did prompt you to flee from the coming wrath?
42-3:8 make, therefore, fruits worthy of the reformation, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have a father--Abraham; for I say to you, that God is able out of these stones to raise children to Abraham;
42-3:9 and already also the axe unto the root of the trees is laid, every tree, therefore, not making good fruit is cut down, and to fire it is cast.'
42-3:10 And the multitudes were questioning him, saying, `What, then, shall we do?'
42-3:11 and he answering saith to them, `He having two coats--let him impart to him having none, and he having victuals--in like manner let him do.'
42-3:12 And there came also tax-gatherers to be baptised, and they said unto him, `Teacher, what shall we do?'
42-3:13 and he said unto them, `Exact no more than that directed you.'
42-3:14 And questioning him also were those warring, saying, `And we, what shall we do?' and he said unto them, `Do violence to no one, nor accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.'
42-3:15 And the people are looking forward, and all are reasoning in their hearts concerning John, whether or not he may be the Christ;
42-3:16 John answered, saying to all, `I indeed with water do baptise you, but he cometh who is mightier than I, of whom I am not worthy to loose the latchet of his sandals--he shall baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire;
42-3:17 whose winnowing shovel is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor, and will gather the wheat to his storehouse, and the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.'
42-3:18 And, therefore, indeed with many other things, exhorting, he was proclaiming good news to the people,
42-3:19 and Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him concerning Herodias the wife of Philip his brother, and concerning all the evils that Herod did,
42-3:20 added also this to all, that he shut up John in the prison.
42-3:21 And it came to pass, in all the people being baptised, Jesus also being baptised, and praying, the heaven was opened,
42-3:22 and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily appearance, as if a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, saying, `Thou art My Son--the Beloved, in thee I did delight.'
42-3:23 And Jesus himself was beginning to be about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, son of Joseph,
42-3:24 the son of Eli, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph,
42-3:25 the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Naum, the son of Esli,
42-3:26 the son of Naggai, the son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Semei, the son of Joseph, the son of Juda,
42-3:27 the son of Joanna, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel,
42-3:28 the son of Neri, the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmodam, the son of Er,
42-3:29 the son of Jose, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat,
42-3:30 the son of Levi, the son of Simeon, the son of Juda, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonan, the son of Eliakim,
42-3:31 the son of Melea, the son of Mainan, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan,
42-3:32 the son of David, the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Booz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nahshon,
42-3:33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Aram, the son of Esrom, the son of Pharez,
42-3:34 the son of Judah, the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,
42-3:35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber,
42-3:36 the son of Salah, the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,
42-3:37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel,
42-3:38 the son of Cainan, the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
Chapter 4:44 Verses
42-4:1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, turned back from the Jordan, and was brought in the Spirit to the wilderness,
42-4:2 forty days being tempted by the Devil, and he did not eat anything in those days, and they having been ended, he afterward hungered,
42-4:3 and the Devil said to him, `If Son thou art of God, speak to this stone that it may become bread.'
42-4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, `It hath been written, that, not on bread only shall man live, but on every saying of God.'
42-4:5 And the Devil having brought him up to an high mountain, shewed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time,
42-4:6 and the Devil said to him, `To thee I will give all this authority, and their glory, because to me it hath been delivered, and to whomsoever I will, I do give it;
42-4:7 thou, then, if thou mayest bow before me--all shall be thine.'
42-4:8 And Jesus answering him said, `Get thee behind me, Adversary, for it hath been written, Thou shalt bow before the Lord thy God, and Him only thou shalt serve.'
42-4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, `If the Son thou art of God, cast thyself down hence,
42-4:10 for it hath been written--To His messengers He will give charge concerning thee, to guard over thee,
42-4:11 and--On hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou mayest dash against a stone thy foot.'
42-4:12 And Jesus answering said to him--`It hath been said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.'
42-4:13 And having ended all temptation, the Devil departed from him till a convenient season.
42-4:14 And Jesus turned back in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a fame went forth through all the region round about concerning him,
42-4:15 and he was teaching in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
42-4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he hath been brought up, and he went in, according to his custom, on the sabbath-day, to the synagogue, and stood up to read;
42-4:17 and there was given over to him a roll of Isaiah the prophet, and having unfolded the roll, he found the place where it hath been written:
42-4:18 `The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because He did anoint me; To proclaim good news to the poor, Sent me to heal the broken of heart, To proclaim to captives deliverance, And to blind receiving of sight, To send away the bruised with deliverance,
42-4:19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.'
42-4:20 And having folded the roll, having given it back to the officer, he sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing on him.
42-4:21 And he began to say unto them--`To-day hath this writing been fulfilled in your ears;'
42-4:22 and all were bearing testimony to him, and were wondering at the gracious words that are coming forth out of his mouth, and they said, `Is not this the son of Joseph?'
42-4:23 And he said unto them, `Certainly ye will say to me this simile, Physician, heal thyself; as great things as we heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country;'
42-4:24 and he said, `Verily I say to you--No prophet is accepted in his own country;
42-4:25 and of a truth I say to you, Many widows were in the days of Elijah, in Israel, when the heaven was shut for three years and six months, when great famine came on all the land,
42-4:26 and unto none of them was Elijah sent, but--to Sarepta of Sidon, unto a woman, a widow;
42-4:27 and many lepers were in the time of Elisha the prophet, in Israel, and none of them was cleansed, but--Naaman the Syrian.'
42-4:28 And all in the synagogue were filled with wrath, hearing these things,
42-4:29 and having risen, they put him forth without the city, and brought him unto the brow of the hill on which their city had been built--to cast him down headlong,
42-4:30 and he, having gone through the midst of them, went away.
42-4:31 And he came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the sabbaths,
42-4:32 and they were astonished at his teaching, because his word was with authority.
42-4:33 And in the synagogue was a man, having a spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a great voice,
42-4:34 saying, `Away, what--to us and to thee, Jesus, O Nazarene? thou didst come to destroy us; I have known thee who thou art--the Holy One of God.'
42-4:35 And Jesus did rebuke him, saying, `Be silenced, and come forth out of him;' and the demon having cast him into the midst, came forth from him, having hurt him nought;
42-4:36 and amazement came upon all, and they were speaking together, with one another, saying, `What is this word, that with authority and power he doth command the unclean spirits, and they come forth?'
42-4:37 and there was going forth a fame concerning him to every place of the region round about.
42-4:38 And having risen out of the synagogue, he entered into the house of Simon, and the mother-in-law of Simon was pressed with a great fever, and they did ask him about her,
42-4:39 and having stood over her, he rebuked the fever, and it left her, and presently, having risen, she was ministering to them.
42-4:40 And at the setting of the sun, all, as many as had any ailing with manifold sicknesses, brought them unto him, and he on each one of them his hands having put, did heal them.
42-4:41 And demons also were coming forth from many, crying out and saying--`Thou art the Christ, the Son of God;' and rebuking, he did not suffer them to speak, because they knew him to be the Christ.
42-4:42 And day having come, having gone forth, he went on to a desert place, and the multitudes were seeking him, and they came unto him, and were staying him--not to go on from them,
42-4:43 and he said unto them--`Also to the other cities it behoveth me to proclaim good news of the reign of God, because for this I have been sent;'
42-4:44 and he was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
Chapter 5:39 Verses
42-5:1 And it came to pass, in the multitude pressing on him to hear the word of God, that he was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret,
42-5:2 and he saw two boats standing beside the lake, and the fishers, having gone away from them, were washing the nets,
42-5:3 and having entered into one of the boats, that was Simon's, he asked him to put back a little from the land, and having sat down, was teaching the multitudes out of the boat.
42-5:4 And when he left off speaking, he said unto Simon, `Put back to the deep, and let down your nets for a draught;'
42-5:5 and Simon answering said to him, `Master, through the whole night, having laboured, we have taken nothing, but at thy saying I will let down the net.'
42-5:6 And having done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net was breaking,
42-5:7 and they beckoned to the partners, who are in the other boat, having come, to help them; and they came, and filled both the boats, so that they were sinking.
42-5:8 And Simon Peter having seen, fell down at the knees of Jesus, saying, `Depart from me, because I am a sinful man, O lord;'
42-5:9 for astonishment seized him, and all those with him, at the draught of the fishes that they took,
42-5:10 and in like manner also James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon; and Jesus said unto Simon, `Fear not, henceforth thou shalt be catching men;'
42-5:11 and they, having brought the boats upon the land, having left all, did follow him.
42-5:12 And it came to pass, in his being in one of the cities, that lo, a man full of leprosy, and having seen Jesus, having fallen on his face, he besought him, saying, `Sir, if thou mayest will, thou art able to cleanse me;'
42-5:13 and having stretched forth his hand, he touched him, having said, `I will; be thou cleansed;' and immediately the leprosy went away from him.
42-5:14 And he charged him to tell no one, `But, having gone away, shew thyself to the priest, and bring near for thy cleansing according as Moses directed, for a testimony to them;'
42-5:15 but the more was the report going abroad concerning him, and great multitudes were coming together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities,
42-5:16 and he was withdrawing himself in the desert places and was praying.
42-5:17 And it came to pass, on one of the days, that he was teaching, and there were sitting by Pharisees and teachers of the Law, who were come out of every village of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was--to heal them.
42-5:18 And lo, men bearing upon a couch a man, who hath been struck with palsy, and they were seeking to bring him in, and to place before him,
42-5:19 and not having found by what way they may bring him in because of the multitude, having gone up on the house-top, through the tiles they let him down, with the little couch, into the midst before Jesus,
42-5:20 and he having seen their faith, said to him, `Man, thy sins have been forgiven thee.'
42-5:21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, `Who is this that doth speak evil words? who is able to forgive sins, except God only?'
42-5:22 And Jesus having known their reasonings, answering, said unto them, `What reason ye in your hearts?
42-5:23 which is easier--to say, Thy sins have been forgiven thee? or to say, Arise, and walk?
42-5:24 `And that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority upon the earth to forgive sins--(he said to the one struck with palsy) --I say to thee, Arise, and having taken up thy little couch, be going on to thy house.'
42-5:25 And presently having risen before them, having taken up that on which he was lying, he went away to his house, glorifying God,
42-5:26 and astonishment took all, and they were glorifying God, and were filled with fear, saying--`We saw strange things to-day.'
42-5:27 And after these things he went forth, and beheld a tax-gatherer, by name Levi, sitting at the tax-office, and said to him, `Be following me;'
42-5:28 and he, having left all, having arisen, did follow him.
42-5:29 And Levi made a great entertainment to him in his house, and there was a great multitude of tax-gatherers and others who were with them reclining (at meat),
42-5:30 and the scribes and the Pharisees among them were murmuring at his disciples, saying, `Wherefore with tax-gatherers and sinners do ye eat and drink?'
42-5:31 And Jesus answering said unto them, `They who are well have no need of a physician, but they that are ill:
42-5:32 I came not to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'
42-5:33 And they said unto him, `Wherefore do the disciples of John fast often, and make supplications--in like manner also those of the Pharisees--but thine do eat and drink?'
42-5:34 And he said unto them, `Are ye able to make the sons of the bride-chamber--in the bridegroom being with them--to fast?
42-5:35 but days will come, and, when the bridegroom may be taken away from them, then they shall fast in those days.'
42-5:36 And he spake also a simile unto them--`No one a patch of new clothing doth put on old clothing, and if otherwise, the new also doth make a rent, and with the old the patch doth not agree, that is from the new.
42-5:37 `And no one doth put new wine into old skins, and if otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and itself will be poured out, and the skins will be destroyed;
42-5:38 but new wine into new skins is to be put, and both are preserved together;
42-5:39 and no one having drunk old wine , doth immediately wish new, for he saith, The old is better.'

42-6:4 how he went into the house of God, and the loaves of the presentation did take, and did eat, and gave also to those with him, which it is not lawful to eat, except only to the priests?'
42-6:5 and he said to them, --`The Son of Man is lord also of the sabbath.'
42-6:6 And it came to pass also, on another sabbath, that he goeth into the synagogue, and teacheth, and there was there a man, and his right hand was withered,
42-6:7 and the scribes and the Pharisees were watching him, if on the sabbath he will heal, that they might find an accusation against him.
42-6:8 And he himself had known their reasonings, and said to the man having the withered hand, `Rise, and stand in the midst;' and he having risen, stood.
42-6:9 Then said Jesus unto them, `I will question you something: Is it lawful on the sabbaths to do good, or to do evil? life to save or to kill?'
42-6:10 And having looked round on them all, he said to the man, `Stretch forth thy hand;' and he did so, and his hand was restored whole as the other;
