5WhenJesussawtheirfaith, he said unto the sick of the palsy,Son,thysins be forgiventhee.6But there werecertain of the scribessittingthere,andreasoningintheirhearts,7Whydoththis man thusspeakblasphemies?whocanforgivesinsbutGodonly?8Andimmediately when Jesusperceived in hisspiritthat they soreasonedwithinthemselves, he said unto them,Why reason ye these thingsinyourhearts?9Whether is iteasier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiventhee;or to say , Arise , and take upthybed,andwalk ?10Butthat ye may knowthat the Son of manhathpoweronearth to forgivesins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
I say unto thee,Arise , and take upthybed,and go thy wayintothinehouse.12Andimmediately he arose , took up the bed,and went forthbefore them all; insomuch that they wereallamazed , andglorifiedGod,saying , Weneversaw it on this fashion.13And he went forthagainby the sea side;andall the multituderesorteduntohim,and he taughtthem.14And as he passed by , he sawLevi the son of Alphaeussittingat the receipt of custom,andsaid unto him,Followme.And he arose and followedhim.15And it came to pass , that, as Jesus sat at meatinhishouse,manypublicansandsinnerssatalso together withJesusandhisdisciples:for there weremany,and they followedhim.16And when the scribesandPhariseessawhimeatwithpublicansandsinners, they said unto hisdisciples,How is it that he eatethanddrinkethwithpublicansandsinners?17WhenJesusheard it, he saith unto them,They that are wholehavenoneed of the physician,but they that aresick: I camenot to call the righteous,butsinnerstorepentance.18And the disciples of Johnand of the Phariseesused to fast : and they comeandsay unto him, Why do the disciples of Johnand of the Phariseesfast , butthydisciplesfastnot?19AndJesussaid unto them , Can the children of the bridechamberfast , whilethebridegroomiswiththem? as long astheyhave the bridegroomwiththem, they cannotfast .20But the days will come , when the bridegroom shall be taken awayfromthem,andthen shall they fastinthosedays.21No manalsoseweth a piece of newclothaon an oldgarment:else the new piece that filled it up taketh awayfrom the old,and the rent is madeworse.22And no manputtethnewwineintooldbottles:belse the newwine doth burst the bottles,and the wine is spilled , and the bottles will be marred : butnewwine must be putintonewbottles.23And it came to pass , that hewentthrough the corn fieldson the sabbath day;andhisdisciplesbegan , as they went , to pluck the ears of corn.24And the Phariseessaid unto him,Behold,why do theyon the sabbath day that whichisnotlawful ?
