Matthew 12

RHE 1 At that time Jesus went through the corn on the sabbath: and his disciples being hungry, began to pluck the ears, and to eat. NIV 1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them. RHE 2 And the Pharisees seeing them, said to him: Behold thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days. NIV 2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, "Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath." RHE 3 But he said to them: Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and they that were with him: NIV 3 He answered, "Haven't you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? RHE 4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the loaves of proposition, which it was not lawful for him to eat, nor for them that were with him, but for the priests only? NIV 4 He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread--which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests. RHE 5 Or have ye not read in the law, that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple break the sabbath, and are without blame? NIV 5 Or haven't you read in the Law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple desecrate the day and yet are innocent? RHE 6 But I tell you that there is here a greater than the temple. NIV 6 I tell you that one greater than the temple is here. RHE 7 And if you knew what this meaneth: I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: you would never have condemned the innocent. NIV 7 If you had known what these words mean, 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the innocent. RHE 8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath. NIV 8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath." RHE 9 And when he had passed from thence, he came into their synagogues. NIV 9 Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue, RHE 10 And behold there was a man who had a withered hand, and they asked him, saying: Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. NIV 10 and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?" RHE 11 But he said to them: What man shall there be among you, that hath one sheep: and if the same fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not take hold on it and lift it up? NIV 11 He said to them, "If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? RHE 12 How much better is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do a good deed on the sabbath days. NIV 12 How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath." RHE 13 Then he saith to the man: Stretch forth thy hand; and he stretched it forth, and it was restored to health even as the other. NIV 13 Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other. RHE 14 And the Pharisees going out made a consultation against him, how they might destroy him. NIV 14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus. RHE 15 But Jesus knowing it, retired from thence: and many followed him, and he healed them all. NIV 15 Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. Many followed him, and he healed all their sick, RHE 16 And he charged them that they should not make him known. NIV 16 warning them not to tell who he was. RHE 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaias the prophet, saying: NIV 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: RHE 18 Behold my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul hath been well pleased. I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. NIV 18 "Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. RHE 19 He shall not contend, nor cry out, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. NIV 19 He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. RHE 20 The bruised reed he shall not break: and smoking flax he shall not extinguish: till he send forth judgment unto victory. NIV 20 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice to victory. RHE 21 And in his name the Gentiles shall hope. NIV 21 In his name the nations will put their hope." RHE 22 Then was offered to him one possessed with a devil, blind and dumb: and he healed him, so that he spoke and saw. NIV 22 Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. RHE 23 And all the multitudes were amazed, and said: Is not this the son of David? NIV 23 All the people were astonished and said, "Could this be the Son of David?" RHE 24 But the Pharisees hearing it, said: This man casteth not out devils but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. NIV 24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, "It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons." RHE 25 And Jesus knowing their thoughts, said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself shall be made desolate: and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. NIV 25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. RHE 26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself: how then shall his kingdom stand? NIV 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? RHE 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. NIV 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. RHE 28 But if I by the Spirit of God cast out devils, then is the kingdom of God come upon you. NIV 28 But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. RHE 29 Or how can any one enter into the house of the strong, and rifle his goods, unless he first bind the strong? and then he will rifle his house. NIV 29 "Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house. RHE 30 He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth. NIV 30 "He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. RHE 31 Therefore I say to you: Every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy of the Spirit shall not be forgiven. NIV 31 And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. RHE 32 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but he that shall speak against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him neither in this world, nor in the world to come. NIV 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. RHE 33 Either make the tree good and its fruit good: or make the tree evil, and its fruit evil. For by the fruit the tree is known. NIV 33 "Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. RHE 34 O generation of vipers, how can you speak good things, whereas you are evil? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. NIV 34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. RHE 35 A good man out of a good treasure bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of an evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. NIV 35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. RHE 36 But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall render an account for it in the day of judgment. NIV 36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. RHE 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. NIV 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned." RHE 38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying: Master, we would see a sign from thee. NIV 38 Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, "Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you." RHE 39 Who answering said to them: An evil and adulterous generation seeketh a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. NIV 39 He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. RHE 40 For as Jonas was in the whale’s belly three days and three nights: so shall the Son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. NIV 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. RHE 41 The men of Ninive shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they did penance at the preaching of Jonas. And behold a greater than Jonas here. NIV 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here. RHE 42 The queen of the south shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold a greater than Solomon here. NIV 42 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here. RHE 43 And when an unclean spirit is gone out of a man he walketh through dry places seeking rest, and findeth none. NIV 43 "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. RHE 44 Then he saith: I will return into my house from whence I came out. And coming he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. NIV 44 Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. RHE 45 Then he goeth, and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is made worse than the first. So shall it be also to this wicked generation. NIV 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation." RHE 46 As he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold his mother and his brethren stood without, seeking to speak to him. NIV 46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. RHE 47 And one said unto him: Behold thy mother and thy brethren stand without, seeking thee. NIV 47 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you." RHE 48 But he answering him that told him, said: Who is my mother, and who are my brethren? NIV 48 He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" RHE 49 And stretching forth his hand towards his disciples, he said: Behold my mother and my brethren. NIV 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. RHE 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father, that is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother. NIV 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."
