Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And again he entered into Capharnaum after some days. 1 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.
2 And it was heard that he was in the house. And many came together, so that there was no room: no, not even at the door. And he spoke to them the word. 2 So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.
3 And they came to him, bringing one sick of the palsy, who was carried by four. 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them.
4 And when they could not offer him unto him for the multitude, they uncovered the roof where he was: and opening it, they let down the bed wherein the man sick of the palsy lay. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on.
5 And when Jesus had seen their faith, he saith to the sick of the palsy: Son, thy sins are forgiven thee. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
6 And there were some of the scribes sitting there and thinking in their hearts: 6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves,
7 Why doth this man speak thus? He blasphemeth. Who can forgive sins, but God only? 7 "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?"
8 Which Jesus presently knowing in his spirit that they so thought within themselves, saith to them: Why think you these things in your hearts? 8 Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, "Why are you thinking these things?
9 Which is easier, to say to the sick of the palsy: Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say: Arise, take up thy bed and walk? 9 Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk'?
10 But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins (he saith to the sick of the palsy): 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralytic,
11 I say to thee: Arise. Take up thy bed and go into thy house. 11 "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."
12 And immediately he arose and, taking up his bed, went his way in the sight of all: so that all wondered and glorified God, saying: We never saw the like. 12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"
13 And he went forth again to the sea side: and all the multitude came to him. And he taught them. 13 Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them.
14 And when he was passing by, he saw Levi, the son of Alpheus, sitting at the receipt of custom; and he saith to him: Follow me. And rising up, he followed him. 14 As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me," Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.
15 And it came to pass as he sat at meat in his house, many Publicans and sinners sat down together with Jesus and his disciples. For they, with Jesus who also followed him. For they were many, who also followed him. 15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.
16 And the scribes and the Pharisees, seeing that he ate with publicans and sinners, said to his disciples: Why doth your master eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the "sinners" and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: "Why does he eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
17 Jesus hearing this, saith to them: They that are well have no need of a physician, but they that are sick. For I came not to call the just, but sinners. 17 On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
18 And the disciples of John and the Pharisees used to fast. And they come and say to him: Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast; but thy disciples do not fast? 18 Now John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. Some people came and asked Jesus, "How is it that John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees are fasting, but yours are not?"
19 And Jesus saith to them: Can the children of the marriage fast, as long as the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 19 Jesus answered, "How can the guests of the bridegroom fast while he is with them? They cannot, so long as they have him with them.
20 But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them: and then they shall fast in those days. 20 But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and on that day they will fast.
21 No man seweth a piece of raw cloth to an old garment: otherwise the new piecing taketh away from the old, and there is made a greater rent. 21 "No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse.
22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: otherwise the wine will burst the bottles, and both the wine will be spilled and the bottles will be lost. But new wine must be put into new bottles. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, he pours new wine into new wineskins."
23 And it came to pass again, as the Lord walked through the corn fields on the sabbath, that his disciples began to go forward and to pluck the ears of corn. 23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain.
24 And the Pharisees said to him: Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? 24 The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
25 And he said to them: Have you never read what David did when he had need and was hungry, himself and they that were with him? 25 He answered, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need?
26 How he went into the house of God, under Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the loaves of proposition, which was not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave to them who were with him? 26 In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions."
27 And he said to them: The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath. 27 Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.
28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord of the sabbath also. 28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."
