Matthew 9

NRS 1 And after getting into a boat he crossed the sea and came to his own town. CEB 1 Boarding a boat, Jesus crossed to the other side of the lake and went to his own city. NRS 2 And just then some people were carrying a paralyzed man lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven." CEB 2 People brought to him a man who was paralyzed, lying on a cot. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man who was paralyzed, "Be encouraged, my child, your sins are forgiven." NRS 3 Then some of the scribes said to themselves, "This man is blaspheming." CEB 3 Some legal experts said among themselves, "This man is insulting God." NRS 4 But Jesus, perceiving their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? CEB 4 But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said, "Why do you fill your minds with evil things? NRS 5 For which is easier, to say, "Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, "Stand up and walk'? CEB 5 Which is easier—to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Get up and walk'? NRS 6 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"—he then said to the paralytic—"Stand up, take your bed and go to your home." CEB 6 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—"Get up, take your cot, and go home." NRS 7 And he stood up and went to his home. CEB 7 The man got up and went home. NRS 8 When the crowds saw it, they were filled with awe, and they glorified God, who had given such authority to human beings. CEB 8 When the crowds saw what had happened, they were afraid and praised God, who had given such authority to human beings. NRS 9 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed him. CEB 9 As Jesus continued on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at a kiosk for collecting taxes. He said to him, "Follow me," and he got up and followed him. NRS 10 And as he sat at dinner in the house, many tax collectors and sinners came and were sitting with him and his disciples. CEB 10 As Jesus sat down to eat in Matthew's house, many tax collectors and sinners joined Jesus and his disciples at the table. NRS 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" CEB 11 But when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" NRS 12 But when he heard this, he said, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. CEB 12 When Jesus heard it, he said, "Healthy people don't need a doctor, but sick people do. NRS 13 Go and learn what this means, "I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners." CEB 13 Go and learn what this means: I want mercy and not sacrifice. I didn't come to call righteous people, but sinners." NRS 14 Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?" CEB 14 At that time John's disciples came and asked Jesus, "Why do we and the Pharisees frequently fast, but your disciples never fast?" NRS 15 And Jesus said to them, "The wedding guests cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. CEB 15 Jesus responded, “The wedding guests can't mourn while the groom is still with them, can they? But the days will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they'll fast. NRS 16 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old cloak, for the patch pulls away from the cloak, and a worse tear is made. CEB 16 "No one sews a piece of new, unshrunk cloth on old clothes because the patch tears away the cloth and makes a worse tear. NRS 17 Neither is new wine put into old wineskins; otherwise, the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins are destroyed; but new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved." CEB 17 No one pours new wine into old wineskins. If they did, the wineskins would burst, the wine would spill, and the wineskins would be ruined. Instead, people pour new wine into new wineskins so that both are kept safe." NRS 18 While he was saying these things to them, suddenly a leader of the synagogue came in and knelt before him, saying, "My daughter has just died; but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live." CEB 18 While Jesus was speaking to them, a ruler came and knelt in front of him, saying, "My daughter has just died. But come and place your hand on her, and she'll live." NRS 19 And Jesus got up and followed him, with his disciples. CEB 19 So Jesus and his disciples got up and went with him. NRS 20 Then suddenly a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his cloak, CEB 20 Then a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and touched the hem of his clothes. NRS 21 for she said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be made well." CEB 21 She thought, If I only touch his robe I'll be healed. NRS 22 Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well." And instantly the woman was made well. CEB 22 When Jesus turned and saw her, he said, "Be encouraged, daughter. Your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that time on. NRS 23 When Jesus came to the leader's house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, CEB 23 When Jesus went into the ruler's house, he saw the flute players and the distressed crowd. NRS 24 he said, "Go away; for the girl is not dead but sleeping." And they laughed at him. CEB 24 He said, "Go away, because the little girl isn't dead but is asleep"; but they laughed at him. NRS 25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl got up. CEB 25 After he had sent the crowd away, Jesus went in and touched her hand, and the little girl rose up. NRS 26 And the report of this spread throughout that district. CEB 26 News about this spread throughout that whole region. NRS 27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" CEB 27 As Jesus departed, two blind men followed him, crying out, "Show us mercy, Son of David." NRS 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." CEB 28 When he came into the house, the blind men approached him. Jesus said to them, "Do you believe I can do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied. NRS 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you." CEB 29 Then Jesus touched their eyes and said, "It will happen for you just as you have believed." NRS 30 And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly ordered them, "See that no one knows of this." CEB 30 Their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly warned them, "Make sure nobody knows about this." NRS 31 But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district. CEB 31 But they went out and spread the word about him throughout that whole region. NRS 32 After they had gone away, a demoniac who was mute was brought to him. CEB 32 As they were leaving, people brought to him a man who was demon-possessed and unable to speak. NRS 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." CEB 33 When Jesus had thrown out the demon, the man who couldn't speak began to talk. The crowds were amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel." NRS 34 But the Pharisees said, "By the ruler of the demons he casts out the demons." CEB 34 But the Pharisees said, "He throws out demons with the authority of the ruler of demons." NRS 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. CEB 35 Jesus traveled among all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, announcing the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness. NRS 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. CEB 36 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he had compassion for them because they were troubled and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. NRS 37 Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; CEB 37 Then he said to his disciples, "The size of the harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers. NRS 38 therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." CEB 38 Therefore, plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers for his harvest."
