1And he enteredagaininto the synagogue;and there was a manthere which had a witheredhand.2And they watchedhim,whether he would healhim on the sabbath day;that they might accusehim.3And he saith unto the man which had the witheredhand,Standforth .a4And he saith unto them,Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days,or to do evil ? to savelife,or to kill ?But they held their peace .
5And when he had looked round about on themwithanger, being grievedfor the hardnessb of theirhearts, he saith unto the man,Stretch forththinehand.And he stretched it out : andhishand was restoredwholeas the other.6And the Pharisees went forth , and straightwaytookcounselwith the Herodiansagainsthim,how they might destroyhim.7ButJesus withdrew himselfwithhisdisciplesto the sea:and a greatmultitudefromGalileefollowedhim,andfromJudaea,8AndfromJerusalem,andfromIdumaea,and from beyondJordan;and they aboutTyreandSidon, a greatmultitude, when they had heard what great things he did , cameuntohim.9And he spake to hisdisciples,that a small ship should wait onhimbecause of the multitude,lest they should thronghim.10For he had healedmany; insomuch that they pressed uponhim for totouchhim, as many ashadplagues.11Anduncleanspirits,when they sawhim, fell down beforehim,andcried , saying , Thouart the Son of God.12And he straitlychargedthemthat they shouldnotmakehimknown.13And he goeth upinto a mountain,andcalleth unto him whomhewould : and they cameuntohim.14And he ordainedtwelve,that they should bewithhim,andthat he might sendthemforth to preach ,
15And to havepower to healsicknesses,and to cast outdevils:16AndSimon he surnamedPeter;17AndJames the son of Zebedee,andJohn the brother of James;and he surnamedthemBoanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:18AndAndrew,andPhilip,andBartholomew,andMatthew,andThomas,andJames the son of Alphaeus,andThaddaeus,andSimon the Canaanite,19AndJudasIscariot,whichalsobetrayedhim:and they wentintoc an house.20And the multitude cometh togetheragain, so thattheycouldnot so much aseatbread.21And when hisfriendsdheard of it, they went out to lay hold on him:for they said , He is beside himself .
22And the scribeswhich came downfromJerusalemsaid , He hathBeelzebub , andby the prince of the devils casteth he outdevils.23And he calledthem unto him, and said unto theminparables,HowcanSatan cast outSatan?24Andif a kingdom be dividedagainstitself,thatkingdomcannotstand .25Andif a house be dividedagainstitself,thathousecannotstand .26AndifSatan rise upagainsthimself,and be divided , he cannotstand , buthath an end.27No mancanenterinto a strong man'shouse, and spoilhisgoods,except he willfirstbind the strong man;andthen he will spoilhishouse.28Verily I say unto you , Allsins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men,andblasphemieswherewithsoever they shall blaspheme :29Buthethat shall blasphemeagainst the HolyGhosthathneverforgiveness,butis in danger of eternaldamnation:30Because they said , He hath an uncleanspirit.31
