2 And lo! they brought to him a man sick in palsy, lying in a bed. And Jesus saw the faith of them, and said to the man sick in palsy, Son, have thou trust; thy sins be forgiven to thee [Forsooth Jesus, seeing the faith of them, said to the man sick in palsy, Son, have trust; thy sins be forgiven to thee]. 2 Some men brought to him a paralytic, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven."
3 And lo! some of the scribes said within themselves, This blasphemeth. 3 At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, "This fellow is blaspheming!"
4 And when Jesus had seen their thoughts, he said, Whereto think ye evil things in your hearts? 4 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?
5 What is lighter to say, Thy sins be forgiven to thee, either to say [or to say], Rise thou, and walk? 5 Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'?
6 But that ye know that man's Son hath power to forgive sins in earth, then he said to the sick man in palsy [then he said to the man sick in palsy], Rise up; take thy bed, and go into thine house. 6 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." Then he said to the paralytic, "Get up, take your mat and go home."
7 And he rose, and went into his house. 7 And the man got up and went home.
8 And the people seeing dreaded [Soothly the companies seeing dreaded], and glorified God, that gave such power to men. 8 When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to men.
9 And when Jesus passed from thence, he saw a man, Matthew by name, sitting in a tollbooth. And he said to him, Follow thou me. And he rose, and followed him. 9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me," he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
10 And it was done, while he sat at the meat in the house, lo! many publicans and sinful men came, and sat at the meat with Jesus and his disciples. [And it was done, him sitting at the meat in the house, lo! many publicans and sinful men coming sat at the meat with Jesus and his disciples.] 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" came and ate with him and his disciples.
11 And the Pharisees saw, and said to his disciples, Why eateth your master with publicans and sinful men? 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
12 And Jesus heard, and said, A physician is not needful to men that fare well, but to men that be evil-at-ease. [And Jesus hearing said, A leech is not needful to men that fare well, but to men having evil.] 12 On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
13 But go ye, and learn what it is, I will mercy, and not sacrifice; for I came, not to call rightful men [forsooth I came, not to call rightwise men], but sinful men to penance. 13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
14 Then the disciples of John came to him, and said [Then the disciples of John came nigh to him, saying], Why we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 14 Then John's disciples came and asked him, "How is it that we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?"
15 And Jesus said to them, Whether the sons of the spouse be able to mourn [Whether the sons of the spouse, or husband, may wail, or mourn], as long as the spouse is with them? But days shall come, when the spouse shall be taken away from them, and then they shall fast. 15 Jesus answered, "How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast.
16 And no man putteth a patch of rough cloth [of rude, or new, cloth] into an old clothing [into an old cloth]; for it doeth away the fullness of the cloak [soothly it taketh away the plenty of it from the cloth], and a worse breaking is made. 16 "No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.
17 Neither men put new wine into old bottles, else the bottles be broken, and destroyed, and the wine shed out. But men put new wine into new bottles, and both be kept. [+Neither men put new wine into old bottles, or wine vessels, else the wine vessels be broken, and the wine is shed out, and the wine vessels perish. But men send new wine into new wine vessels, and both be kept.] 17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."
18 Whiles that Jesus spake these things to them, lo! a prince came, and worshipped him, and said [saying], Lord, my daughter is now dead; but come thou, and put thine hand on her, and she shall live [but come thou, and put thine hand upon her, and she shall live]. 18 While he was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, "My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live."
19 And Jesus rose, and his disciples, and followed him. [And Jesus rising followed him, and his disciples.] 19 Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples.
20 And lo! a woman, that had a bloody flux twelve years, approached behind, and touched the hem of his cloak. [+And lo! a woman that suffered the flux, or running, of blood twelve years, nighed/came to behind, and touched the hem of his cloth.] 20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak.
21 For she said within herself, If I touch only the cloak of him [+If I shall touch only the cloth of him/If I shall touch only the clothes of him], I shall be safe. 21 She said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed."
22 And Jesus turned, and saw her, and said, Daughter, have thou trust [Daughter, have trust]; thy faith hath made thee safe. And the woman was whole from that hour. 22 Jesus turned and saw her. "Take heart, daughter," he said, "your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that moment.
23 And when Jesus came into the house of the prince, and saw minstrels, and the people making noise, 23 When Jesus entered the ruler's house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd,
24 he said, Go ye away [Go away], for the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. And they scorned him. 24 he said, "Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep." But they laughed at him.
25 And when the folk was put out, he went in, and held her hand; and the damsel rose [up]. 25 After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up.
26 And this fame went out into all that land. 26 News of this spread through all that region.
27 And when Jesus passed from thence, two blind men crying followed him, and said, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. [And Jesus passing thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.] 27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!"
28 And when he came into the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them [Soothly when he had come into the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus saith to them], What will ye, that I do to you? And they said, Lord, that our eyes be opened. And Jesus said, Believe ye, that I may do this thing to you [And Jesus said, Believe ye, that I may do this thing]? They said to him, Yea, Lord. 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied.
29 Then he touched their eyes, and said [saying], After your faith be it done to you. 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith will it be done to you";
30 And the eyes of them were opened. And Jesus threatened them, and said [saying], See ye, that no man know. 30 and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, "See that no one knows about this."
31 But they went out, and famed him through all that land. 31 But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region.
32 And when they were gone out, lo! they brought to him a dumb man, having a devil. 32 While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus.
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb man spake. And the people wondered, and said, It hath not been seen thus in Israel [And the companies wondered, saying, It appeared never so in Israel]. 33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel."
34 But the Pharisees said, In the prince of devils he casteth out devils. 34 But the Pharisees said, "It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons."

36 And he saw the people, and had ruth on them [Forsooth Jesus, seeing companies, had ruth on them]; for they were travailed, and lying as sheep not having a shepherd. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
37 Then he said to his disciples, Soothly there is much ripe corn, but few workmen. 37 Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
38 Therefore pray ye the Lord of the ripe corn, that he send workmen into his ripe corn. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
