Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now it happened, while the multitude pressed on him and heard the word of God, that he was standing by the lake of Ginosar. 1 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people crowding around him and listening to the word of God,
2 He saw two boats standing by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 2 he saw at the water's edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets.
3 He entered into one of the boats, which was Shim`on's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes out of the boat. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Shim`on, "Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch." 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."
5 Shim`on answered him, "Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the net." 5 Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."
6 When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking. 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.
7 They beckoned to their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. They came, and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
8 But Shim`on Kefa, when he saw it, fell down at Yeshua' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord." 8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus' knees and said, "Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!"
9 For he was amazed, and all who were with him, at the catch of fish which they had caught; 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken,
10 and so also were Ya`akov and Yochanan, sons of Zavdai, who were partners with Shim`on. Yeshua said to Shim`on, "Don't be afraid. From now on you will catch men alive." 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon's partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid; from now on you will catch men."
11 When they had brought their boats to land, they left everything, and followed him. 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
12 It happened, while he was in one of the cities, behold, there was a man full of leprosy. When he saw Yeshua, he fell on his face, and begged him, saying, "Lord, if you want to, you can make me clean." 12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."
13 He stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, "I want to. Be made clean." Immediately the leprosy departed from him. 13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" And immediately the leprosy left him.
14 He charged him to "Tell no one, But go your way, and show yourself to the Kohen, and offer for your cleansing according to what Moshe commanded, for a testimony to them." 14 Then Jesus ordered him, "Don't tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."
15 But the report concerning him spread much more, and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. 15 Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.
16 But he withdrew himself into the desert, and prayed. 16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
17 It happened on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Perushim and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every village of the Galil, Yehudah, and Yerushalayim. The power of the Lord was with him to heal them. 17 One day as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law, who had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem, were sitting there. And the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick.
18 Behold, men brought a paralyzed man on a cot, and they sought to bring him in to lay before him. 18 Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus.
19 Not finding a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his cot into the midst before Yeshua. 19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.
20 Seeing their faith, he said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you." 20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven."
21 The Sofrim and the Perushim began to reason, saying, "Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?" 21 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, "Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?"
22 But Yeshua, perceiving their thoughts, answered them, "Why are you reasoning so in your hearts? 22 Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, "Why are you thinking these things in your hearts?
23 Which is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you;' or to say, 'Arise and walk?' 23 Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'?
24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on eretz to forgive sins" (he said to the paralyzed man), "I tell you, arise, and take up your cot, and go to your house." 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralyzed man, "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."
25 Immediately he rose up before them, and took up that which he was laying on, and departed to his house, glorifying God. 25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God.
26 Amazement took hold on all, and they glorified God. They were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today." 26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today."
27 After these things he went out, and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax office, and said to him, "Follow me!" 27 After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. "Follow me," Jesus said to him,
28 He left everything, and rose up and followed him. 28 and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.
29 Levi made him a great feast for him in his house. There was a great crowd of tax collectors and others who were reclining with them. 29 Then Levi held a great banquet for Jesus at his house, and a large crowd of tax collectors and others were eating with them.
30 Their Sofrim and the Perushim murmured against his talmidim, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with the tax collectors and sinners?" 30 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law who belonged to their sect complained to his disciples, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
31 Yeshua answered them, "Those who are healthy have no need for a physician, but those who are sick do. 31 Jesus answered them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
33 They said to him, "Why do Yochanan's talmidim often fast and pray, likewise also the talmidim of the Perushim, but yours eat and drink?" 33 They said to him, "John's disciples often fast and pray, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours go on eating and drinking."
34 He said to them, "Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 34 Jesus answered, "Can you make the guests of the bridegroom fast while he is with them?
35 But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them. Then they will fast in those days." 35 But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; in those days they will fast."
36 He also told a parable to them. "No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old garment, or else he will tear the new, and also the piece from the new will not match the old. 36 He told them this parable: "No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old.
37 No one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 37 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.
38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved. 38 No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins.
39 No man having drunk old wine immediately desires new, for he says, 'The old is better.'" 39 And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, 'The old is better.' "
