16 And [as he] was passing by along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew, Simon's brother, casting [a net] into the sea (for they were fishermen). 16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
17 And Jesus said to them, "{Follow} me and I will make you become fishers of people." 17 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
18 And immediately they left their nets [and] followed him. 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 And going on a little [farther], he saw James the [son] of Zebedee and his brother John, and they [were] in the boat mending the nets. 19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets.
20 And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men [and] went away after him. 20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
21 And they went into Capernaum and immediately on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue. 21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.
22 And they were amazed at his teaching, because he was teaching them like one who had authority, and not like the scribes. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.
23 And so then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out,
24 saying, "{Leave us alone}, Jesus the Nazarene! Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God!" 24 "What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God!"
25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" 25 "Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!"
26 And [after] convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, the unclean spirit came out of him. 26 The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.
27 And they were all amazed, so that [they began] to discuss with one another, saying, "What is this? A new teaching with authority! He even commands the unclean spirits and they obey him." 27 The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, "What is this? A new teaching--and with authority! He even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey him."
28 And the report about him then went out everywhere in the whole surrounding region of Galilee. 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.
29 And so then he departed from the synagogue [and] came into the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. 29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew.
30 Now Simon's mother-in-law was lying down, suffering with a fever, and at once they told him about her. 30 Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her.

32 Now [when it] was evening, when the sun had set, they began bringing to him all those {who were sick} and those who were demon-possessed. 32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.
33 And the whole town was gathered together at the door. 33 The whole town gathered at the door,
34 And he healed many {who were sick} with various diseases and expelled many demons. And he did not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him. 34 and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was.
35 And getting up early in the morning [while it was] very dark, he departed and went to a deserted place, and there he was praying. 35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
36 And Simon and those [who were] with him searched diligently for him. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him,
37 And they found him and said to him, "Everyone is looking for you!" 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: "Everyone is looking for you!"
38 And he said to them, "Let us go elsewhere, into the neighboring rural towns, so that I can preach there also, because I have come out for this [very] reason." 38 Jesus replied, "Let us go somewhere else--to the nearby villages--so I can preach there also. That is why I have come."
39 And he went into all Galilee preaching in their synagogues and expelling demons. 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
40 And a leper came to him, entreating him and kneeling down, saying to him, "If you are willing, you are able to make me clean." 40 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, "If you are willing, you can make me clean."
41 And becoming angry, he stretched out his hand [and] touched [him], and said to him, "I am willing; be made clean." 41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!"
42 And immediately the leprosy went away from him and he was made clean. 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
43 And warning him sternly, he sent him away at once. 43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning:
44 And he said to him, "See to it that you say nothing to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and bring for your cleansing [the things] which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. 44 "See that you don't tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."
45 But he went out [and] began to proclaim [it] freely and to spread abroad the account, so that he was no longer able to enter publicly into a town. But he was staying outside in deserted places, and they were coming to him from all directions. 45 Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.
