3 And he entered into one of the ships, 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 ship.
4 Now, when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
5 And Simon, answering, said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless, at thy word, I will let down the
6 And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes; and their net brake.
7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
10 And so was also James and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
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.
13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
14 And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him; and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
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, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
18 And, behold, men brought in a bed, a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
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.
22 But, when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering, said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?
23 Whether is easier to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? 24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go unto thine house.
20 And, when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, say-disciples, ing, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? who can forgive sins, but God alone?
25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.
named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me. 28 And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things today.
27 And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican,
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.
30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners.
31 And Jesus, answering, said unto them, They that are whole, need not a physician; but they that are sick.
32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repent
33 And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?
34 And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bride-chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. 36 And he spake also a parable unto 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. 37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
38 But new wine must be put into new bottles, and both are preserved.
39 No man also, having drunk old wine, straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.
THE TWELVE APOSTLES
AND it came to pass, on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the cornfields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath-days?
3 And Jesus, answering them, said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungered, and they which were with him;
4 How he went into the house of God, and did take, and eat the shew-bread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat, but for the priests alone?
5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
6 And it came to pass also, on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue, and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered:
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath-day; that they might find an accusation against him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose, and stood forth.

25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies; do good to them which hate you; 28 Bless them that curse you: and pray for them which despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one check, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not again.
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that
33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

and do good and lend, hoping || see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.
for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest ; for he is kind unto the unthankful, and to the evil.
36 Be ye, therefore, merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven :
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom : for with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again.
39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by his own fruit: for of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble-bush gather they grapes.
40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his mas

46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord; and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock; and, when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it for it was founded upon a rock.
41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42 Either, how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine
