Matthew 9

WNT 1 Accordingly He went on board, and crossing over came to His own town. NIV 1 Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. WNT 2 Here they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith Jesus said to the paralytic, "Take courage, my child; your sins are pardoned." NIV 2 Some men brought to him a paralytic, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven." WNT 3 "Such language is impious," said some of the Scribes among themselves. NIV 3 At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, "This fellow is blaspheming!" WNT 4 Knowing their thoughts Jesus said, "Why are you cherishing evil thoughts in your hearts? NIV 4 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? WNT 5 Why, which is easier? --to say, `Your sins are pardoned,' or to say `Rise up and walk'? NIV 5 Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'? WNT 6 But, to prove to you that the Son of Man has authority on earth to pardon sins" --He then says to the paralytic, "Rise, and take up your bed and go home." NIV 6 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." Then he said to the paralytic, "Get up, take your mat and go home." WNT 7 And he got up, and went off home. NIV 7 And the man got up and went home. WNT 8 And the crowds were awe-struck when they saw it, and ascribed the glory to God who had entrusted such power to a man. NIV 8 When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to men. WNT 9 Passing on thence Jesus saw a man called Matthew sitting at the Toll Office, and said to him, "Follow me." And he arose, and followed Him. NIV 9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me," he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. WNT 10 And while He was reclining at table, a large number of tax-gathers and notorious sinners were of the party with Jesus and His disciples. NIV 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" came and ate with him and his disciples. WNT 11 The Pharisees noticed this, and they inquired of His disciples, "Why does your Teacher eat with the tax-gatherers and notorious sinners?" NIV 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?" WNT 12 He heard the question and replied, "It is not men in good health who require a doctor, but the sick. NIV 12 On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. WNT 13 But go and learn what this means, `It is mercy that I desire, not sacrifice'; for I did not come to appeal to the righteous, but to sinners." NIV 13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners." WNT 14 At that time John's disciples came and asked Jesus, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not?" NIV 14 Then John's disciples came and asked him, "How is it that we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?" WNT 15 "Can the bridegroom's party mourn," He replied, "as long as the bridegroom is with them? But other days will come (when the Bridegroom has been taken from them) and then they will fast. NIV 15 Jesus answered, "How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast. WNT 16 No one ever mends an old cloak with a patch of newly woven cloth. Otherwise, the patch put on would tear away some of the old, and a worse hole would be made. NIV 16 "No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. WNT 17 Nor do people pour new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the skins would split, the wine would escape, and the skins be destroyed. But they put new wine into fresh skins, and both are saved." NIV 17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved." WNT 18 While He was thus speaking, a Ruler came up and profoundly bowing said, "My daughter is just dead; but come and put your hand upon her and she will return to life." NIV 18 While he was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, "My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live." WNT 19 And Jesus rose and followed him, as did also His disciples. NIV 19 Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples. WNT 20 But a woman who for twelve years had been afflicted with haemorrhage came behind Him and touched the tassel of His cloak; NIV 20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. WNT 21 for she said to herself, "If I but touch His cloak, I shall be cured." NIV 21 She said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed." WNT 22 And Jesus turned and saw her, and said, "Take courage, daughter; your faith has cured you." And the woman was restored to health from that moment. NIV 22 Jesus turned and saw her. "Take heart, daughter," he said, "your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that moment. WNT 23 Entering the Ruler's house, Jesus saw the flute-players and the crowd loudly wailing, NIV 23 When Jesus entered the ruler's house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd, WNT 24 and He said, "Go out of the room; the little girl is not dead, but asleep." And they laughed at Him. NIV 24 he said, "Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep." But they laughed at him. WNT 25 When however the place was cleared of the crowd, Jesus went in, and on His taking the little girl by the hand, she rose up. NIV 25 After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up. WNT 26 And the report of this spread throughout all that district. NIV 26 News of this spread through all that region. WNT 27 As Jesus passed on, two blind men followed Him, shouting and saying, "Pity us, Son of David." NIV 27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" WNT 28 And when He had gone indoors, they came to Him. "Do you believe that I can do this?" He asked them. "Yes, Sir," they replied. NIV 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied. WNT 29 So He touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be to you." NIV 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith will it be done to you"; WNT 30 Then their eyes were opened. And assuming a stern tone Jesus said to them, "Be careful to let no one know." NIV 30 and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, "See that no one knows about this." WNT 31 But they went out and published His fame in all that district. NIV 31 But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region. WNT 32 And as they were leaving His presence a dumb demoniac was brought to Him. NIV 32 While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. WNT 33 When the demon was expelled, the dumb man could speak. And the crowds exclaimed in astonishment, "Never was such a thing seen in Israel." NIV 33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel." WNT 34 But the Pharisees maintained, "It is by the power of the Prince of the demons that he drives out the demons." NIV 34 But the Pharisees said, "It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons." WNT 35 And Jesus continued His circuits through all the towns and the villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom, and curing every kind of disease and infirmity. NIV 35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. WNT 36 And when He saw the crowds He was touched with pity for them, because they were distressed and were fainting on the ground like sheep which have no shepherd. NIV 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
