3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make ready the way of the Lord! Make his paths straight!'" 3 "a voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' "
4 John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching the baptism of repentance for forgiveness of sins. 4 And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
5 There went out to him all the country of Judea, and all those of Jerusalem. They were baptized by him in the Jordan river, confessing their sins. 5 The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.
6 John was clothed with camel's hair and a leather belt around his loins. He ate locusts and wild honey. 6 John wore clothing made of camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.
7 He preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and loosen. 7 And this was his message: "After me will come one more powerful than I, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
8 I baptized you in water, but he will baptize you in the Holy Spirit." 8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
9 It happened in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 Immediately coming up from the water, he saw the heavens parting, and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 10 As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.
11 A voice came out of the sky, "You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." 11 And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."
12 Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness. 12 At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert,
13 He was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals; and the angels ministered to him. 13 and he was in the desert forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.
14 Now after John was taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 14 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.
15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand! Repent, and believe in the gospel." 15 "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"
16 Passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in 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 Jesus said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you into fishers for men." 17 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
18 Immediately they left their nets, and followed him. 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 Going on a little further from there, he saw James, the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother, who also 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 Immediately he called them, and they left their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired servants, and went 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 They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught. 21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.
22 They were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as having authority, 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 Immediately 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, "Ha! What do we have to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you 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 Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!" 25 "Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!"
26 The unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. 26 The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.
27 They were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? A new teaching? For with authority he commands 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 The report of him went out immediately everywhere into all the region of Galilee and its surrounding area. 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.
29 Immediately, when they had come 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.
30 Now Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 30 Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her.
31 He came and took her by the hand, and raised her up. The fever left her, and she served them. 31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.
32 At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to him all who were sick, and those who were possessed by demons. 32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.
33 All the city was gathered together at the door. 33 The whole town gathered at the door,
34 He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. He didn't allow 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 Early in the night, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there 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 Simon and those who were with him followed after him; 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him,
37 and they found him, and told him, "All are seeking you." 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: "Everyone is looking for you!"
38 He said to them, "Let's go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also, for to this end I came forth." 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 He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons. 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
40 There came to him a leper, begging him, kneeling down to him, and saying to him, "If you want to, you can 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 Being moved with compassion, he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, and said to him, "I want to. Be made clean." 41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!"
42 When he had said this, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean. 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
43 He strictly charged him, and immediately sent him out, 43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning:
44 and said to him, "See you say nothing to anybody, but go show yourself to the priest, and offer 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 much, and to spread about the matter, so that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city, but was outside in desert places: and they came to him from everywhere. 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.
