Luke 5

CEB 1 One day Jesus was standing beside Lake Gennesaret when the crowd pressed in around him to hear God's word. NRS 1 Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, CEB 2 Jesus saw two boats sitting by the lake. The fishermen had gone ashore and were washing their nets. NRS 2 he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. CEB 3 Jesus boarded one of the boats, the one that belonged to Simon, then asked him to row out a little distance from the shore. Jesus sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. NRS 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. CEB 4 When he finished speaking to the crowds, he said to Simon, "Row out farther, into the deep water, and drop your nets for a catch." NRS 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch." CEB 5 Simon replied, "Master, we've worked hard all night and caught nothing. But because you say so, I'll drop the nets." NRS 5 Simon answered, "Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets." CEB 6 So they dropped the nets and their catch was so huge that their nets were splitting. NRS 6 When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning to break. CEB 7 They signaled for their partners in the other boat to come and help them. They filled both boats so full that they were about to sink. NRS 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. CEB 8 When Simon Peter saw the catch, he fell at Jesus' knees and said, "Leave me, Lord, for I'm a sinner!" NRS 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!" CEB 9 Peter and those with him were overcome with amazement because of the number of fish they caught. NRS 9 For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; CEB 10 James and John, Zebedee's sons, were Simon's partners and they were amazed too. Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid. From now on, you will be fishing for people." NRS 10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people." CEB 11 As soon as they brought the boats to the shore, they left everything and followed Jesus. NRS 11 When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him. CEB 12 Jesus was in one of the towns where there was also a man covered with a skin disease. When he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged, "Lord, if you want, you can make me clean." NRS 12 Once, when he was in one of the cities, there was a man covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he bowed with his face to the ground and begged him, "Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean." CEB 13 Jesus reached out his hand, touched him, and said, "I do want to. Be clean." Instantly, the skin disease left him. NRS 13 Then Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, "I do choose. Be made clean." Immediately the leprosy left him. CEB 14 Jesus ordered him not to tell anyone. "Instead," Jesus said, "go and show yourself to the priest and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses instructed. This will be a testimony to them." NRS 14 And he ordered him to tell no one. "Go," he said, "and show yourself to the priest, and, as Moses commanded, make an offering for your cleansing, for a testimony to them." CEB 15 News of him spread even more and huge crowds gathered to listen and to be healed from their illnesses. NRS 15 But now more than ever the word about Jesus spread abroad; many crowds would gather to hear him and to be cured of their diseases. CEB 16 But Jesus would withdraw to deserted places for prayer. NRS 16 But he would withdraw to deserted places and pray. CEB 17 One day when Jesus was teaching, Pharisees and legal experts were sitting nearby. They had come from every village in Galilee and Judea, and from Jerusalem. Now the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal. NRS 17 One day, while he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting near by (they had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem); and the power of the Lord was with him to heal. CEB 18 Some men were bringing a man who was paralyzed, lying on a cot. They wanted to carry him in and place him before Jesus, NRS 18 Just then some men came, carrying a paralyzed man on a bed. They were trying to bring him in and lay him before Jesus; CEB 19 but they couldn't reach him because of the crowd. So they took him up on the roof and lowered him—cot and all—through the roof tiles into the crowded room in front of Jesus. NRS 19 but finding no way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the middle of the crowd in front of Jesus. CEB 20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven." NRS 20 When he saw their faith, he said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven you." CEB 21 The legal experts and Pharisees began to mutter among themselves, "Who is this who insults God? Only God can forgive sins!" NRS 21 Then the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, "Who is this who is speaking blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?" CEB 22 Jesus recognized what they were discussing and responded, "Why do you fill your minds with these questions? NRS 22 When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them, "Why do you raise such questions in your hearts? CEB 23 Which is easier—to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Get up and walk'? NRS 23 Which is easier, to say, "Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, "Stand up and walk'? CEB 24 But so that you will know that the Human One has authority on the earth to forgive sins" —Jesus now spoke to the man who was paralyzed, "I say to you, get up, take your cot, and go home." NRS 24 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"—he said to the one who was paralyzed—"I say to you, stand up and take your bed and go to your home." CEB 25 Right away, the man stood before them, picked up his cot, and went home, praising God. NRS 25 Immediately he stood up before them, took what he had been lying on, and went to his home, glorifying God. CEB 26 All the people were beside themselves with wonder. Filled with awe, they glorified God, saying, "We've seen unimaginable things today." NRS 26 Amazement seized all of them, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, "We have seen strange things today." CEB 27 Afterward, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at a kiosk for collecting taxes. Jesus said to him, "Follow me." NRS 27 After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, "Follow me." CEB 28 Levi got up, left everything behind, and followed him. NRS 28 And he got up, left everything, and followed him. CEB 29 Then Levi threw a great banquet for Jesus in his home. A large number of tax collectors and others sat down to eat with them. NRS 29 Then Levi gave a great banquet for him in his house; and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others sitting at the table with them. CEB 30 The Pharisees and their legal experts grumbled against his disciples. They said, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?" NRS 30 The Pharisees and their scribes were complaining to his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?" CEB 31 Jesus answered, "Healthy people don't need a doctor, but sick people do. NRS 31 Jesus answered, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; CEB 32 I didn't come to call righteous people but sinners to change their hearts and lives." NRS 32 I have come to call not the righteous but sinners to repentance." CEB 33 Some people said to Jesus, "The disciples of John fast often and pray frequently. The disciples of the Pharisees do the same, but your disciples are always eating and drinking." NRS 33 Then they said to him, "John's disciples, like the disciples of the Pharisees, frequently fast and pray, but your disciples eat and drink." CEB 34 Jesus replied, "You can't make the wedding guests fast while the groom is with them, can you? NRS 34 Jesus said to them, "You cannot make wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them, can you? CEB 35 The days will come when the groom will be taken from them, and then they will fast." NRS 35 The days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days." CEB 36 Then he told them a parable. "No one tears a patch from a new garment to patch an old garment. Otherwise, the new garment would be ruined, and the new patch wouldn't match the old garment. NRS 36 He also told them a parable: "No one tears a piece from a new garment and sews it on an old garment; otherwise the new will be torn, and the piece from the new will not match the old. CEB 37 Nobody pours new wine into old wineskins. If they did, the new wine would burst the wineskins, the wine would spill, and the wineskins would be ruined. NRS 37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. CEB 38 Instead, new wine must be put into new wineskins. NRS 38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. CEB 39 No one who drinks a well-aged wine wants new wine, but says, ‘The well-aged wine is better.'" NRS 39 And no one after drinking old wine desires new wine, but says, "The old is good.' "
