Matthew 9:25-38

25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl got up.
26 And the report of this spread throughout that district.
27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!"
28 When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord."
29 Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you."
30 And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly ordered them, "See that no one knows of this."
31 But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district.
32 After they had gone away, a demoniac who was mute was brought to him.
33 And when the demon had been cast out, the one who had been mute spoke; and the crowds were amazed and said, "Never has anything like this been seen in Israel."
34 But the Pharisees said, "By the ruler of the demons he casts out the demons."
35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness.
36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
37 Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;
38 therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."
