16 And passing by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother, casting nets 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: Come after me; and I will make you to become fishers of men. 17 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
18 And immediately leaving their nets, they followed him. 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 And going on from thence a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who also were mending their nets in the ship: 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 forthwith he called them. And leaving their father Zebedee in the ship with his hired men, they followed 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 entered into Capharnaum: and forthwith upon the sabbath days going into the synagogue, he taught them. 21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.
22 And they were astonished at his doctrine. For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as 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 there was in their synagogue a man 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: What have we to do with thee, Jesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroy us? I know who thou art, 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 threatened him, saying: Speak no more, and go out of the man. 25 "Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!"
26 And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying out with a loud voice, went 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 insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying: What thing is this? What is this new doctrine? For with power he commandeth even 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 fame of him was spread forthwith into all the country of Galilee. 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.
29 And immediately going out of the synagogue they 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.

33 And all the city was gathered together at the door. 33 The whole town gathered at the door,
34 And he healed many that were troubled with divers diseases. And he cast out many devils: and he suffered them not 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 rising very early, going out, he went into a desert place: and there he prayed. 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 they that were with him followed after him. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him,
37 And when they had found him, they said to him: All seek for thee. 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: "Everyone is looking for you!"
38 And he saith to them: Let us go into the neighbouring towns and cities, that I may preach there also; for to this purpose am I come. 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 was preaching in their synagogues and in all Galilee and casting out devils. 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him and kneeling down, said to him: If thou wilt thou canst 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 Jesus, having compassion on him, stretched forth his hand and touching him saith to him: I will. Be thou made clean. 41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!"
42 And when he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him: and he was made clean. 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
43 And he strictly charged him and forthwith sent him away. 43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning:
44 And he saith to him: See thou tell no one; but go, shew thyself to the high priest and offer for thy cleansing the things that 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 being gone out, began to publish and to blaze abroad the word: so that he could not openly go into the city. but was without in desert places. And they flocked to him from all sides. 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.
