Luke 5

RSV 1 While the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennes'aret. NIV 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, RSV 2 And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. NIV 2 he saw at the water's edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. RSV 3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. NIV 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. RSV 4 And when he had ceased speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." NIV 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch." RSV 5 And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets." NIV 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." RSV 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a great shoal of fish; and as their nets were breaking, NIV 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. RSV 7 they beckoned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. NIV 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. RSV 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord." NIV 8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus' knees and said, "Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!" RSV 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the catch of fish which they had taken; NIV 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, RSV 10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zeb'edee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men." NIV 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." RSV 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him. NIV 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him. RSV 12 While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy; and when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and besought him, "Lord, if you will, you can make me clean." NIV 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." RSV 13 And he stretched out his hand, and touched him, saying, "I will; be clean." And immediately the leprosy left him. NIV 13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" And immediately the leprosy left him. RSV 14 And he charged him to tell no one; but "go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, for a proof to the people." NIV 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." RSV 15 But so much the more the report went abroad concerning him; and great multitudes gathered to hear and to be healed of their infirmities. NIV 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. RSV 16 But he withdrew to the wilderness and prayed. NIV 16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. RSV 17 On one of those days, as he was teaching, there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was with him to heal. NIV 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. RSV 18 And behold, men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they sought to bring him in and lay him before Jesus; NIV 18 Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. RSV 19 but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. NIV 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. RSV 20 And when he saw their faith he said, "Man, your sins are forgiven you." NIV 20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven." RSV 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, "Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?" NIV 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?" RSV 22 When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them, "Why do you question in your hearts? NIV 22 Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, "Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? RSV 23 Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Rise and walk'? NIV 23 Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'? RSV 24 But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins" --he said to the man who was paralyzed--"I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home. NIV 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." RSV 25 And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he lay, and went home, glorifying God. NIV 25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. RSV 26 And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, "We have seen strange things today." NIV 26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today." RSV 27 After this he went out, and saw a tax collector, named Levi, sitting at the tax office; and he said to him, "Follow me." NIV 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, RSV 28 And he left everything, and rose and followed him. NIV 28 and Levi got up, left everything and followed him. RSV 29 And Levi made him a great feast in his house; and there was a large company of tax collectors and others sitting at table with them. NIV 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. RSV 30 And the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?" NIV 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'?" RSV 31 And Jesus answered them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; NIV 31 Jesus answered them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. RSV 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." NIV 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." RSV 33 And they said to him, "The disciples of John fast often and offer prayers, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink." NIV 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." RSV 34 And Jesus said to them, "Can you make wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? NIV 34 Jesus answered, "Can you make the guests of the bridegroom fast while he is with them? RSV 35 The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days." NIV 35 But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; in those days they will fast." RSV 36 He told them a parable also: "No one tears a piece from a new garment and puts it upon an old garment; if he does, he will tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. NIV 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. RSV 37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. NIV 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. RSV 38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. NIV 38 No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. RSV 39 And no one after drinking old wine desires new; for he says, 'The old is good.'" NIV 39 And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, 'The old is better.' "
