Mark 2

CEBA 1 After a few days, Jesus went back to Capernaum, and people heard that he was at home. NIV 1 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. CEBA 2 So many gathered that there was no longer space, not even near the door. Jesus was speaking the word to them. NIV 2 So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. CEBA 3 Some people arrived, and four of them were bringing to him a man who was paralyzed. NIV 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. CEBA 4 They couldn't carry him through the crowd, so they tore off part of the roof above where Jesus was. When they had made an opening, they lowered the mat on which the paralyzed man was lying. NIV 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. CEBA 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Child, your sins are forgiven!" NIV 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven." CEBA 6 Some legal experts were sitting there, muttering among themselves, NIV 6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, CEBA 7 "Why does he speak this way? He's insulting God. Only the one God can forgive sins." NIV 7 "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" CEBA 8 Jesus immediately recognized what they were discussing, and he said to them, "Why do you fill your minds with these questions? NIV 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? CEBA 9 Which is easier—to say to a paralyzed person, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Get up, take up your bed, and walk'? NIV 9 Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk'? CEBA 10 But so you will know that the Human One has authority on the earth to forgive sins"—he said to the man who was paralyzed, NIV 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralytic, CEBA 11 "Get up, take your mat, and go home." NIV 11 "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home." CEBA 12 Jesus raised him up, and right away he picked up his mat and walked out in front of everybody. They were all amazed and praised God, saying, "We've never seen anything like this!" NIV 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!" CEBA 13 Jesus went out beside the lake again. The whole crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. NIV 13 Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. CEBA 14 As he continued along, he saw Levi, Alphaeus' son, sitting at a kiosk for collecting taxes. Jesus said to him, "Follow me." Levi got up and followed him. NIV 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. CEBA 15 Jesus sat down to eat at Levi's house. Many tax collectors and sinners were eating with Jesus and his disciples. Indeed, many of them had become his followers. NIV 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. CEBA 16 When some of the legal experts from among the Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples, "Why is he eating with sinners and tax collectors?" NIV 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'?" CEBA 17 When Jesus heard it, he said to them, "Healthy people don't need a doctor, but sick people do. I didn't come to call righteous people, but sinners." NIV 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." CEBA 18 John's disciples and the Pharisees had a habit of fasting. Some people asked Jesus, "Why do John's disciples and the Pharisees' disciples fast, but yours don't?" NIV 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?" CEBA 19 Jesus said, “The wedding guests can't fast while the groom is with them, can they? As long as they have the groom with them, they can't fast. NIV 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. CEBA 20 But the days will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast. NIV 20 But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and on that day they will fast. CEBA 21 "No one sews a piece of new, unshrunk cloth on old clothes; otherwise, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and makes a worse tear. NIV 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. CEBA 22 No one pours new wine into old leather wineskins; otherwise, the wine would burst the wineskins and the wine would be lost and the wineskins destroyed. But new wine is for new wineskins." NIV 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." CEBA 23 Jesus went through the wheat fields on the Sabbath. As the disciples made their way, they were picking the heads of wheat. NIV 23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. CEBA 24 The Pharisees said to Jesus, "Look! Why are they breaking the Sabbath law?" NIV 24 The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?" CEBA 25 He said to them, "Haven't you ever read what David did when he was in need, when he and those with him were hungry? NIV 25 He answered, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? CEBA 26 During the time when Abiathar was high priest, David went into God's house and ate the bread of the presence, which only the priests were allowed to eat. He also gave bread to those who were with him." NIV 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." CEBA 27 Then he said, "The Sabbath was created for humans; humans weren't created for the Sabbath. NIV 27 Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. CEBA 28 This is why the Human One is Lord even over the Sabbath." NIV 28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."
