Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 One Shabbat, while Yeshua was passing through some wheat fields, his talmidim began plucking the heads of grain, rubbing them between their hands and eating the seeds. 1 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and his disciples began to pick some heads of grain, rub them in their hands and eat the kernels.
2 Some of the P'rushim said, "Why are you violating Shabbat?" 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
3 Yeshua answered them, "Haven't you ever read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? 3 Jesus answered them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?
4 He entered the House of God and took and ate the Bread of the Presence" -- which no one is permitted to eat but the cohanim. 4 He entered the house of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions."
5 "The Son of Man," he concluded, "is Lord of Shabbat." 5 Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
6 On another Shabbat, when Yeshua had gone into the synagogue and was teaching, a man was there who had a shriveled hand. 6 On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled.
7 The Torah-teachers and P'rushim watched Yeshua carefully to see if he would heal on Shabbat, so that they could accuse him of something. 7 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath.
8 But he knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Come up and stand where we can see you!" He got up and stood there. 8 But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Get up and stand in front of everyone." So he got up and stood there.
9 Then Yeshua said to them, "I ask you now: what is permitted on Shabbat? Doing good or doing evil? Saving life or destroying it?" 9 Then Jesus said to them, "I ask you, which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?"
10 Then, after looking around at all of them, he said to the man, "Hold out your hand." As he held it out, his hand was restored. 10 He looked around at them all, and then said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did so, and his hand was completely restored.
11 But the others were filled with fury and began discussing with each other what they could do to Yeshua. 11 But they were furious and began to discuss with one another what they might do to Jesus.
12 It was around that time that Yeshua went out to the hill country to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God. 12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
13 When day came, he called his talmidim and chose from among them twelve to be known as emissaries: 13 When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:
14 Shim`on, whom he named Kefa; Andrew, his brother; Ya`akov; Yochanan; Philip; Bar-Talmai; 14 Simon (whom he named Peter), his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
15 Mattityahu; T'oma; Ya`akov Ben-Halfai; 15 Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot,
16 Shim`on, the one called the Zealot; Y'hudah Ben-Ya`akov; and Y'hudah from K'riot, who turned traitor. 16 Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
17 Then he came down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his talmidim was there with great numbers of people from all Y'hudah, Yerushalayim and the coast around Tzor and Tzidon; they had come to hear him and be healed of their diseases. 17 He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coast of Tyre and Sidon,
18 Those who were troubled with unclean spirits were being healed; 18 who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by evil spirits were cured,
19 and the whole crowd was trying to touch him, because power kept going out from him, healing everyone. 19 and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.
20 He looked at his talmidim and said: "How blessed are you poor! for the Kingdom of God is yours. 20 Looking at his disciples, he said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 "How blessed are you who are hungry! for you will be filled. "How blessed are you who are crying now! for you will laugh. 21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.
22 "How blessed you are whenever people hate you and ostracize you and insult you and denounce you as a criminal on account of the Son of Man. 22 Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
23 Be glad when that happens; yes, dance for joy! because in heaven your reward is great. For that is just how their fathers treated the prophets. 23 "Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.
24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you have already had all the comfort you will get! 24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort.
25 "Woe to you who are full now, for you will go hungry! "Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and cry! 25 Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.
26 "Woe to you when people speak well of you, for that is just how their fathers treated the false prophets! 26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets.
27 Nevertheless, to you who are listening, what I say is this: "Love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you, 27 "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
29 "If someone hits you on one cheek, offer the other too; if someone takes your coat, let him have your shirt as well. 29 If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.
30 "If someone asks you for something, give it to him; if someone takes what belongs to you, don't demand it back. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.
31 "Treat other people as you would like them to treat you. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
32 What credit is it to you if you love only those who love you? Why, even sinners love those who love them. 32 "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them.

Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full.
35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend expecting nothing back!

A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
39 He also told them a parable: "Can one blind man lead another blind man? Won't they both fall into a pit? 39 He also told them this parable: "Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?
40 A talmid is not above his rabbi; but each one, when he is fully trained, will be like his rabbi. 40 A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.
41 So why do you see the splinter in your brother's eye, but not notice the log in your own eye? 41 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
42 How can you say to your brother, `Brother, let me remove the splinter from your eye,' when you yourself don't see the log in your own eye? You hypocrite!

43 "For no good tree produces bad fruit, nor does a bad tree produce good fruit. 43 "No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.

45 The good person produces good things from the store of good in his heart, while the evil person produces evil things from the store of evil in his heart.

When a flood came, the torrent beat against that house but couldn't shake it, because it was constructed well. 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

As soon as the river struck it, it collapsed and that house became a horrendous wreck!" 49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."
