Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ the Son of God. 1 The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2 As it is written in Isaiah the Prophet, "See, I am sending My messenger before Thee, Who will prepare Thy way"; 2 It is written in Isaiah the prophet: "I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way"--
3 "The voice of one crying aloud: `In the Desert prepare a road for the Lord: Make His highways straight.'" 3 "a voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' "
4 So John the Baptizer came, and was in the Desert proclaiming a baptism of the penitent 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 people of all classes from Judaea, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem of all ranks, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, making open confession of 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 As for John, his garment was of camel's hair, and he wore a loincloth of leather; and his food was 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 His announcement was, "There is One coming after me mightier than I--One whose sandal-strap I am unworthy to stoop down and unfasten. 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 have baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." 8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in 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 and immediately on His coming up out of the water He saw an opening in the sky, and the Spirit like a dove coming down to Him; 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 and a voice came from the sky, saying, "Thou art My Son dearly loved: in Thee is My delight." 11 And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."
12 At once the Spirit impelled Him to go out into the Desert, 12 At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert,
13 where He remained for forty days, tempted by Satan; and He was among the wild beasts, but the angels waited upon 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 Then, after John had been thrown into prison, Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming God's Good News. 14 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.
15 "The time has fully come," He said, "and the Kingdom of God is close at hand: repent, and believe this Good News. 15 "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"
16 One day, passing along the shore of the Lake of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, Simon's brother, throwing their nets in the Lake; for they were fisherman. 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 "Come and follow me," said Jesus, "and I will make you fishers for men." 17 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
18 At once they left their nets and followed Him. 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 Going on a little further He saw James the son of Zabdi and his brother John: they also were in the boat mending the nets, and He immediately called them. 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 They therefore left their father Zabdi in the boat with the hired men, and went and 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 So they came to Capernaum, and on the next Sabbath He went to the synagogue and began to teach. 21 They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.
22 The people listened with amazement to His teaching--for there was authority about it: it was very different from that of 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 when all at once, there in their synagogue, a man under the power of a foul spirit screamed out: 23 Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out,
24 "What have you to do with us, Jesus the Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--God's Holy One." 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 But Jesus reprimanded him, saying, "Silence! come out of him." 25 "Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!"
26 So the foul spirit, after throwing the man into convulsions, came out of him with a loud cry. 26 The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.
27 And all were amazed and awe-struck, so they began to ask one another, "What does this mean? Here is a new sort of teaching--and a tone of authority! And even to foul spirits he issues orders 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 His fame spread at once everywhere in all that part of Galilee. 28 News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.
29 Then on leaving the synagogue they came at once, with James and John, to the house of Simon and Andrew. 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 ill in bed with a fever, and without delay they informed Him about her. 30 Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her.
31 So He went to her, and taking her hand He raised her to her feet: the fever left her, and she began to wait upon 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 When it was evening, after sunset people came bringing Him all who were sick and the demoniacs; 32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.
33 and the whole town was assembled at the door. 33 The whole town gathered at the door,
34 Then He cured numbers of people who were ill with various diseases, and He drove out many demons; not allowing the demons to speak, because they knew who He was. 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 In the morning He rose early, while it was still quite dark, and leaving the house He went away to a solitary 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 And Simon and the others searched everywhere for Him. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him,
37 When they found Him they said, "Every one is looking for you." 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: "Everyone is looking for you!"
38 "Let us go elsewhere, to the neighbouring country towns," He replied, "that I may proclaim my Message there also; because for that purpose I came from God." 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 through all Galilee, preaching in the synagogues and expelling the demons. 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
40 One day there came a leper to Jesus entreating Him, and pleading on his knees. "If you are willing," he said, "you are able to cleanse me." 40 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, "If you are willing, you can make me clean."
41 Moved with pity Jesus reached out His hand and touched him. "I am willing," He said; "be cleansed." 41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!"
42 The leprosy at once left him, and he was cleansed. 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
43 Jesus at once sent him away, strictly charging him, 43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning:
44 and saying, "Be careful not to tell any one, but go and show yourself to the Priest, and for your purification present the offerings that Moses appointed as evidence for 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 the man, when he went out, began to tell every one and to publish the matter abroad, so that it was no longer possible for Jesus to go openly into any town; but He had to remain outside in unfrequented places, where people came to Him from all parts. 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.
