Mark 2

LEB 1 And [when he] entered again into Capernaum after [some] days, it became known that he was at home. NIV 1 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. LEB 2 And many had gathered, so that [there was] no longer room, not even at the door, and he 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. LEB 3 And they came bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four [of them]. NIV 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. LEB 4 And [when] they were not able to bring [him] to him because of the crowd, they removed the roof where he was. And [after] digging through, they lowered the stretcher on which the paralytic 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. LEB 5 And [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." LEB 6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, NIV 6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, LEB 7 "Why does this man speak like this? He is blaspheming! Who is able to forgive sins except God alone?" NIV 7 "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" LEB 8 And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they were reasoning like this within themselves, said to them, "Why are you considering these [things] in your hearts? 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? LEB 9 Which is easier to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say 'Get up and pick up your stretcher 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'? LEB 10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,"--he said to the paralytic-- NIV 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralytic, LEB 11 "I say to you, get up, pick up your stretcher, and go to your home." NIV 11 "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home." LEB 12 And he got up and immediately picked up his stretcher [and] went out in front of [them] all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We have 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!" LEB 13 And he went out again beside the sea, and all the crowd was coming 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. LEB 14 And [as he] was passing by, he saw Levi the [son] of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, "Follow me!" And he stood 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. LEB 15 And it happened that he {was dining} in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners {were dining with} Jesus and his disciples, for there were many and they were following him. 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. LEB 16 And the scribes of the Pharisees, [when they] saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, began to say to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?" 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'?" LEB 17 And [when] Jesus heard [it], he said to them, "Those who are healthy do not have need of a physician, but those {who are sick}. I have not come to call the righteous, 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." LEB 18 And John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting, and they came and said to him, "{Why} do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?" 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?" LEB 19 And Jesus said to them, "The {bridegroom's attendants} are not able to fast while the bridegroom is with them, [are they]? As long a time [as] they have the bridegroom with them, they are not able to 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. LEB 20 But days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day. NIV 20 But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and on that day they will fast. LEB 21 No one sews a patch of unshrunken cloth on an old garment. {Otherwise} the patch pulls away from it--the new from the old--and the tear becomes worse. 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. LEB 22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. {Otherwise} the wine will burst the wineskins and the wine is destroyed and the wineskins [too]. But new wine [is put] into 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." LEB 23 And it happened that he was going through the grain fields on the Sabbath, and his disciples began to make [their] way [while] plucking off the heads of grain. NIV 23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. LEB 24 And the Pharisees began to say to him, "Behold, why are they doing what is not permitted on the Sabbath?" NIV 24 The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?" LEB 25 And he said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he had need and he and those [who were] 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? LEB 26 how he entered into the house of God in the time of Abiathar the high priest and ate the bread of the presentation, which it is not permitted to eat (except the priests) and also gave [it] 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." LEB 27 And he said to them, "The Sabbath was established for people, and not people for the Sabbath. NIV 27 Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. LEB 28 So then, the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath." NIV 28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."
