Matthew 9:3-13 (Young's Literal Translation)

View In My Bible
3 And lo, certain of the scribes said within themselves, `This one doth speak evil.' 4 And Jesus, having known their thoughts, said, `Why think ye evil in your hearts? 5 for which is easier? to say, The sins have been forgiven to thee; or to say, Rise, and walk? 6 `But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power upon the earth to forgive sins -- (then saith he to the paralytic) -- having risen, take up thy couch, and go to thy house.' 7 And he, having risen, went to his house, 8 and the multitudes having seen, wondered, and glorified God, who did give such power to men. 9 And Jesus passing by thence, saw a man sitting at the tax-office, named Matthew, and saith to him, `Be following me,' and he, having risen, did follow him. 10 And it came to pass, he reclining (at meat) in the house, that lo, many tax-gatherers and sinners having come, were lying (at meat) with Jesus and his disciples, 11 and the Pharisees having seen, said to his disciples, `Wherefore with the tax-gatherers and sinners doth your teacher eat?' 12 And Jesus having heard, said to them, `They who are whole have no need of a physician, but they who are ill; 13 but having gone, learn ye what is, Kindness I will, and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'
