Mark 2

CEB 1 After a few days, Jesus went back to Capernaum, and people heard that he was at home. NRS 1 When he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. CEB 2 So many gathered that there was no longer space, not even near the door. Jesus was speaking the word to them. NRS 2 So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even in front of the door; and he was speaking the word to them. CEB 3 Some people arrived, and four of them were bringing to him a man who was paralyzed. NRS 3 Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. CEB 4 They couldn't carry him through the crowd, so they tore off part of the roof above where Jesus was. When they had made an opening, they lowered the mat on which the paralyzed man was lying. NRS 4 And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. CEB 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Child, your sins are forgiven!" NRS 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven." CEB 6 Some legal experts were sitting there, muttering among themselves, NRS 6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, CEB 7 "Why does he speak this way? He's insulting God. Only the one God can forgive sins." NRS 7 "Why does this fellow speak in this way? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" CEB 8 Jesus immediately recognized what they were discussing, and he said to them, "Why do you fill your minds with these questions? NRS 8 At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions among themselves; and he said to them, "Why do you raise such questions in your hearts? CEB 9 Which is easier—to say to a paralyzed person, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Get up, take up your bed, and walk'? NRS 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, "Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, "Stand up and take your mat and walk'? CEB 10 But so you will know that the Human One has authority on the earth to forgive sins"—he said to the man who was paralyzed, NRS 10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"—he said to the paralytic— CEB 11 "Get up, take your mat, and go home." NRS 11 "I say to you, stand up, take your mat and go to your home." CEB 12 Jesus raised him up, and right away he picked up his mat and walked out in front of everybody. They were all amazed and praised God, saying, "We've never seen anything like this!" NRS 12 And he stood up, and immediately took the mat and went out before all of them; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!" CEB 13 Jesus went out beside the lake again. The whole crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. NRS 13 Jesus went out again beside the sea; the whole crowd gathered around him, and he taught them. CEB 14 As he continued along, he saw Levi, Alphaeus' son, sitting at a kiosk for collecting taxes. Jesus said to him, "Follow me." Levi got up and followed him. NRS 14 As he was walking along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed him. CEB 15 Jesus sat down to eat at Levi's house. Many tax collectors and sinners were eating with Jesus and his disciples. Indeed, many of them had become his followers. NRS 15 And as he sat at dinner in Levi's house, many tax collectors and sinners were also sitting with Jesus and his disciples—for there were many who followed him. CEB 16 When some of the legal experts from among the Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples, "Why is he eating with sinners and tax collectors?" NRS 16 When the scribes of the Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?" CEB 17 When Jesus heard it, he said to them, "Healthy people don't need a doctor, but sick people do. I didn't come to call righteous people, but sinners." NRS 17 When Jesus heard this, he said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I have come to call not the righteous but sinners." CEB 18 John's disciples and the Pharisees had a habit of fasting. Some people asked Jesus, "Why do John's disciples and the Pharisees' disciples fast, but yours don't?" NRS 18 Now John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting; and people came and said to him, "Why do John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?" CEB 19 Jesus said, “The wedding guests can't fast while the groom is with them, can they? As long as they have the groom with them, they can't fast. NRS 19 Jesus said to them, "The wedding guests cannot fast while the bridegroom is with them, can they? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. CEB 20 But the days will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast. NRS 20 The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day. CEB 21 "No one sews a piece of new, unshrunk cloth on old clothes; otherwise, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and makes a worse tear. NRS 21 "No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old cloak; otherwise, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. CEB 22 No one pours new wine into old leather wineskins; otherwise, the wine would burst the wineskins and the wine would be lost and the wineskins destroyed. But new wine is for new wineskins." NRS 22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins." CEB 23 Jesus went through the wheat fields on the Sabbath. As the disciples made their way, they were picking the heads of wheat. NRS 23 One sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain. CEB 24 The Pharisees said to Jesus, "Look! Why are they breaking the Sabbath law?" NRS 24 The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?" CEB 25 He said to them, "Haven't you ever read what David did when he was in need, when he and those with him were hungry? NRS 25 And he said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need of food? CEB 26 During the time when Abiathar was high priest, David went into God's house and ate the bread of the presence, which only the priests were allowed to eat. He also gave bread to those who were with him." NRS 26 He entered the house of God, when Abiathar was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and he gave some to his companions." CEB 27 Then he said, "The Sabbath was created for humans; humans weren't created for the Sabbath. NRS 27 Then he said to them, "The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the sabbath; CEB 28 This is why the Human One is Lord even over the Sabbath." NRS 28 so the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath."
