1 Now it came to pass on a sabbath, that he was going through the grainfields; and his disciples plucked the ears, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands. 1 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and his disciples began to pick some heads of grain, rub them in their hands and eat the kernels.
2 But certain of the Pharisees said, Why do ye that which it is not lawful to do on the sabbath day? 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read even this, what David did, when he was hungry, he, and they that were with him; 3 Jesus answered them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?
4 how he entered into the house of God, and took and ate the showbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat save for the priests alone? 4 He entered the house of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions."
5 And he said unto them, The Son of man is lord of the sabbath. 5 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
6 And it came to pass on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man there, and his right hand was withered. 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled.
7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath; that they might find how to accuse him. 7 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath.
8 But he knew their thoughts; and he said to the man that had his hand withered, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. 8 But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Get up and stand in front of everyone." So he got up and stood there.
9 And Jesus said unto them, I ask you, Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good, or to do harm? to save a life, or to destroy it? 9 Then Jesus said to them, "I ask you, which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?"
10 And he looked round about on them all, and said unto him, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did [so]: and his hand was restored. 10 He looked around at them all, and then said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did so, and his hand was completely restored.

13 And when it was day, he called his disciples; and he chose from them twelve, whom also he named apostles: 13 When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:

15 and Matthew and Thomas, and James [the son] of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 15 Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot,

17 and he came down with them, and stood on a level place, and a great multitude of his disciples, and a great number of the people from all Judaea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 17 He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coast of Tyre and Sidon,
18 and they that were troubled with unclean spirits were healed. 18 who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by evil spirits were cured,
19 And all the multitude sought to touch him; for power came forth from him, and healed [them] all. 19 and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.

30 Give to every one that asketh thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.

41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 41 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
42 Or how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me cast out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote that is in thy brother's eye. 42 How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
43 For there is no good tree that bringeth forth corrupt fruit; nor again a corrupt tree that bringeth forth good fruit. 43 "No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 44 Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.
45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and the evil [man] out of the evil [treasure] bringeth forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. 45 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 46 "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?
47 Every one that cometh unto me, and heareth my words, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like: 47 I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice.
48 he is like a man building a house, who digged and went deep, and laid a foundation upon the rock: and when a flood arose, the stream brake against that house, and could not shake it: because it had been well builded. 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.
49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that built a house upon the earth without a foundation; against which the stream brake, and straightway it fell in; and the ruin of that house was great. 49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."
