Mark 2

WNT 1 After some days He entered Capernaum again, and it soon 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. WNT 2 and such numbers of people came together that there was no longer room for them even round the door. He was speaking His Message 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. WNT 3 when there came a party of people bringing a paralytic--four men carrying him. NIV 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. WNT 4 Finding themselves unable, however, to bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they untiled the roof just over His head, and after clearing an opening they lowered the mat 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. WNT 5 Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, "My son, your sins are pardoned." NIV 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven." WNT 6 Now there were some of the Scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts. NIV 6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, WNT 7 "Why does this man use such words?" they said; "he is blaspheming. Who can pardon sins but One--that is, God?" NIV 7 "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" WNT 8 At once perceiving by His spirit that they were reasoning within themselves, Jesus asked them, "Why do you thus argue in your minds? 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? WNT 9 Which is easier?--to say to this paralytic, `Your sins are pardoned,' or to say, `Rise, take up your mat, 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'? WNT 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to pardon sins" --He turned to the paralytic, and said, NIV 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralytic, WNT 11 "To you I say, `Rise, take up your mat and go home.'" NIV 11 "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home." WNT 12 The man rose, and immediately under the eyes of all took up his mat and went out, so that they were all filled with astonishment, gave the glory to God, and said, "We never saw 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!" WNT 13 Again He went out to the shore of the Lake, and the whole multitude kept coming to Him, and He taught them. NIV 13 Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. WNT 14 And as He passed by, He saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the Toll Office, and said to him, "Follow me." So he rose 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. WNT 15 When He was sitting at table in Levi's house, a large number of tax-gatherers and notorious sinners were at table with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many such who habitually followed 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. WNT 16 But when the Scribes of the Pharisee sect saw Him eating with the sinners and the tax-gatherers, they said to His disciples, "He is eating and drinking with the tax-gatherers 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'?" WNT 17 Jesus heard the words, and He said, "It is not the healthy who require a doctor, but the sick: I did not come to appeal to the righteous, but to 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." WNT 18 (Now John's disciples and those of the Pharisees were keeping a fast.) And they came and asked Him, "How is it that John's disciples and those of the Pharisees are fasting, and yours are not?" 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?" WNT 19 "Can a wedding party fast while the bridegroom is among them?" replied Jesus. "So long as they have the bridegroom with them, fasting is impossible. 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. WNT 20 But a time will come when the Bridegroom will be taken away from them; 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. WNT 21 No one mends an old garment with a piece of unshrunk cloth. Otherwise, the patch put on would tear away from it--the new from the old--and a worse hole would be made. 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. WNT 22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the wine would burst the skins, and both wine and skins would be lost. New wine needs fresh skins!" 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." WNT 23 One Sabbath He was walking through the wheatfields when His disciples began to pluck the ears of wheat as they went. NIV 23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. WNT 24 So the Pharisees said to Him, "Look! why are they doing what on the Sabbath is unlawful?" NIV 24 The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?" WNT 25 "Have you never read," Jesus replied, "what David did when the necessity arose and he and his men were hungry: NIV 25 He answered, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? WNT 26 how he entered the house of God in the High-priesthood of Abiathar, and ate the Presented Loaves--which none but the priests are allowed to eat--and gave some to his men also?" 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." WNT 27 And Jesus said to them: "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath; NIV 27 Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. WNT 28 so that the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath." NIV 28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."
