Matthew 12

WYC 1 In that time Jesus went by corns in the sabbath day [on the sabbath day]; and his disciples hungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, 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. WYC 2 And the Pharisees, seeing, said to him, Lo! thy disciples do that thing that is not leaveful to them to do in [the] sabbaths. NIV 2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, "Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath." WYC 3 And he said to them, Whether ye have not read, what David did, when he hungered, and they that were with him? NIV 3 He answered, "Haven't you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? WYC 4 how he entered into the house of God, and ate loaves of proposition, which loaves it was not leaveful to him to eat, neither to them that were with him, but to priests alone? [+how he entered into the house of God, and ate loaves of proposition, or putting forth/either setting forth, which was not leaveful to him to eat, neither to them that were with him, no but to 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. WYC 5 Or whether ye have not read in the law, that in the sabbaths priests in the temple defoul the sabbaths, and they be 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? WYC 6 And I say to you, that here is a greater than the temple. [Soothly I say to you, for this is more than the temple.] NIV 6 I tell you that one greater than the temple is here. WYC 7 And if ye knew, what it is, I will mercy, and not sacrifice, ye should never have condemned innocents. NIV 7 If you had known what these words mean, 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the innocent. WYC 8 For man's Son is Lord, yea, of the sabbath. [Truly man's Son is Lord also of the sabbath.] NIV 8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath." WYC 9 And when he passed from thence [And when he passed thence], he came into the synagogue of them. NIV 9 Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue, WYC 10 And lo! a man that had a dry hand. And they asked him, and said, Whether it be leaveful to heal in the sabbath [And they asked him, saying, If it is leaveful to heal in the sabbath]? that they should 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?" WYC 11 And he said to them, What man of you shall there be, that hath one sheep, and if it fall into a ditch in the sabbaths, whether he shall not (take) hold, 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? WYC 12 How much more is a man better than a sheep? Therefore it is leaveful to do good in the sabbaths [in the sabbath]. NIV 12 How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath." WYC 13 Then he said to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched forth; and it was restored to health 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. WYC 14 And the Pharisees went out, and made a council against him, how they should destroy him [how they should lose him]. NIV 14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus. WYC 15 And Jesus knew it, and went away 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, WYC 16 And he commanded to them, that they should not make him known; NIV 16 warning them not to tell who he was. WYC 17 that that thing were fulfilled [that that thing should be fulfilled], that was said by Esaias, the prophet, saying, NIV 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: WYC 18 Lo! my child, whom I have chosen, my darling, in whom it hath well pleased to my soul; I shall put my Spirit on him, and he shall tell doom to heathen men. 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. WYC 19 He shall not strive, nor cry, neither any man shall hear his voice in streets. NIV 19 He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. WYC 20 A bruised reed he shall not break, and he shall not quench smoking flax, till he cast out doom to 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. WYC 21 and heathen men shall hope in his name. NIV 21 In his name the nations will put their hope." WYC 22 Then a man blind and dumb, that had a fiend [having a devil], was brought to him; and he healed him, so that he spake, 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. WYC 23 And all the people wondered, and said, Whether this be the son of David? NIV 23 All the people were astonished and said, "Could this be the Son of David?" WYC 24 But the Pharisees heard, and said, He this casteth not out fiends, but in Beelzebub, prince of fiends [+This casteth not our fiends, no but in Beelzebub, prince of 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." WYC 25 And Jesus, witting their thoughts, said to them, Each kingdom parted against itself, shall be desolated [shall be desolate], and each city, or house, parted 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. WYC 26 And if Satan casteth out Satan [And if Satan cast out Satan], he is parted against himself; therefore how shall his kingdom stand? NIV 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? WYC 27 And if I in Beelzebub cast out devils, in whom your sons cast out? Therefore they shall be your doomsmen. 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. WYC 28 But if I in the Spirit of God cast out fiends, then the kingdom of God is come into you. NIV 28 But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. WYC 29 Either how may any man enter into the house of a strong man, and take away his vessels, but he first bind the strong man, and then he shall spoil 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. WYC 30 He that is not with me, is against me; and he that gathereth not together with me, scattereth abroad. NIV 30 "He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. WYC 31 Therefore I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to 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. WYC 32 And whoever saith a word against man's Son, it shall be forgiven to him; but who that saith a word against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven to him, neither in this world, nor in the tother. 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. WYC 33 Either make ye the tree good, and his fruit good; either make ye the tree evil and his fruit evil [or make ye the tree evil, and his fruit evil]; for a tree is known of his fruit. 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. WYC 34 Ye generation of adders, how be ye able to speak good things, when ye be evil? For the mouth speaketh of the plenty of the heart. [Ye generation of adders, how may ye speak good things, when ye be evil? Soothly the mouth speaketh of the great abundance of the heart.] 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. WYC 35 A good man bringeth forth good things of good treasure, and an evil man bringeth forth evil things of evil treasure. 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. WYC 36 And I say to you, that of every idle word, that men speak, they shall yield reason thereof in the day of doom; 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. WYC 37 for of thy words thou shalt be justified, and of thy words thou shalt be condemned. NIV 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned." WYC 38 Then some of the scribes and the Pharisees answered to him, and said, Master, we will see a token of thee. [Then some of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered to him, saying, Master, we would see a token of 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." WYC 39 Which answered, and said to them, An evil kindred and a spouse-breaker seeketh a token [An evil generation and adulterous seeketh a token], and a token shall not be given to it, but the token 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. WYC 40 For as Jonas was in the womb of a whale three days and three nights, so man's Son shall 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. WYC 41 Men of Nineveh shall rise in doom with this generation, and shall condemn it; for they did penance in the preaching of Jonas, and lo! here [is] a greater than Jonas. 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. WYC 42 The queen of the south shall rise in doom with this generation, and shall condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and lo! here [is] a greater than Solomon. 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. WYC 43 When an unclean spirit goeth out from a man, he goeth by dry places, seeking rest, and findeth not. [+Forsooth when an unclean spirit is gone out from a man, he goeth by dry places, seeking rest, and he 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. WYC 44 Then he saith, I shall turn again into mine house, from whence I went out [Then he saith, I shall turn again into my house, from whence I came out]. And he cometh, and findeth it void, and cleansed with besoms, and made fair. 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. WYC 45 Then he goeth, and taketh with him seven other spirits worse than himself; and they enter [in], and dwell there. And the last things of that man be made worse than the former. So it shall be [and] to this worst 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." WYC 46 Yet while he spake to the people, lo! his mother and his brethren stood withoutforth, seeking to speak with him. NIV 46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. WYC 47 And a man said to him, Lo! thy mother and thy brethren stand withoutforth, seeking thee. NIV 47 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you." WYC 48 And he answered to the man, that spake to him, and said, Who is my mother? and who be my brethren? NIV 48 He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" WYC 49 And he held forth his hand into his disciples, and said, Lo! my mother and my brethren; NIV 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. WYC 50 for whoever doeth the will of my Father that is in heavens, 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."
