9 ' And it came to pass in those days,
that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee,
and was baptized of John in Jordan.

10 ""And straightway coming up out of the
water, he saw the heavens || opened, and the
Spirit like a dove descending upon him.

11 And there came a voice from heaven,
saying, "Thou art my beloved Son, in whom
I am well pleased.

12 "And immediately the Spirit driveth
him into the wilderness.

13 And he was there in the wilderness
forty days tempted of Satan ; and was with
the wild beasts ; Pand the angels ministered
unto him.

14 iNow after that John was put m
prison, Jesus came into Galilee, ■■ preaching
the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, ^Thetime is fulfilled, and
'the kingdom of God is at hand : repent ye,
and believe the gospel.

16 _ "Now as he walked by the sea of
Galilee, he saw Simon, and Andrew his
brother, casting a nef into the sea : for they
were fishers.

17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye
after me, and I will make you to become
fishers of men.

18 And straightway nhey forsook their
nets, and followed him.




Christ healeth one possessed,

19 y And when he had gone a httle further
tjience,-he saw James the son of Zebedee,
and John his brother, who also were in the
ship mending their nets.

20 And straightway he called them : and
they left their father Zebedee in the ship
with the hired servants, and went after him.

21 *And they went into Capernaum; and
straightway on the sabbath-day he entered
into the synagogue and taught.

22 " And they were astonished at his doc-
trine : for he taught them as one that had
authority, and not as the scribes.

^ 23 ''And there was in their synagogue
a man with an unclean spirit ; and he cried

24 Saying, Let us alone; "=what have we
to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth ?
art thou come to destroy us? I know thee
who thou art, the Holy One of God.

25 And Jesus ''rebuked him, saying. Hold
thy peace, and come out of him.

26 And when the unclean . spirit «had
torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he
came out of him,

27 And they were all amazed, insomuch
that they questioned among themselves, say-
ing. What thing is this? what new doctrine is
this? for with authority commandeth he even

^ the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

abroad throughout all the region round about

29 ""And forthwith, when they were
come out of the synagogue, they entered
into the house of Simon and Andrew, with
James and John.

30 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of
a fever ; and anon they tell him of her.

31 And he came and took her by the
hand, and lifted her up ; and immediately
the fever left her, and she ministered unto

they brought unto him all that were dis-
eased, and them that were possessed with

33 And all the city was gathered together
at the door.

34 And he healed many that were sick of
divers diseases, and cast out many devils ;
and "i suffered not the devils ||to speak, be-
cause they knew him.

35 And 'in the morning, rising up a great
while before day, he went out and departed
into a solitary place, and there prayed.

36 And Simon, and they that were with
him, followed after hin\.

37 And when they had found him, they
said unto him, All men seek for thee.

38 And he said unto them, ""Let us go
into the next towns, that I may preach there
also: for 'therefore came I forth.

39 " And he preached in their synagogues
throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

40 "And there came a leper to him,
beseeching him, and kneehng down to him,
and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst
make me clean.

41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put
forth his hand, and touched him, and saith
unto him, I will ; be thou clean.

42 And as soon as he had spoken, im-
mediately the leprosy departed from him, and
he was cleansed.

with sent him away ;

nothing to any man ; but go thy way, shew
thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleans-
ing those things "which Moses commanded,
for a testimony unto them.

4 And when they could not come nigh,
unto him for the press, they uncovered the
roof where he was : and when they had
broken it up, they let down the bed wherein
the sick of the palsy lay.

5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said
unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be
forgiven thee.

6 But there were certain of the scribes
sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphe-
mies? ''who can forgive sins but God only?

8 And immediately, "^when Jesus perceived
in his spirit that they so reasoned within
themselves, he said unto them. Why reason
ye these things in your hearts?

Christ ecfteth with publicans and sinners. S. MARK.

9 ^Whether is it easier to say to the sick
of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee ; or
to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and
walk '{

10 But that ye may know that the Son of
man hath power on earth, to forgive sins,
(he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

111 say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy
bed, and go thy way into thine house.

12 And immediately he arose, took up
the bed, and went forth before them all ;
insomuch that they were all amazed, and
glorified God, saying. We never saw it on
this fashion.

13 " And he went forth again by the sea-
side ; and all the multitude resorted unto
him, and he taught them.

14 ^And as he passed by, he saw Levi the
son of Alpheus, sitting || at the receipt of
custom, and said unto him. Follow me.
And he arose, and followed him.

15 eAnd it came to pass, that as Jesus
sat at meat in his house, many publicans
and sinners sat also together with Jesus and
his disciples ; for there were many, and they
followed him.

16 And when the scribes and Pharisees
saw him eat with publicans and sinners,
they said unto his disciples, Hoav is it that
he eateth and drinketh with publicans and
sinners ?

17 When Jesus heard it, he Saith unto
them, ''They that are. whole, have no need
of the physician, but they that are sick : I
came not to call the righteous, but sinners,
to repentance.

18 'And the disciples of John, and of
the Pharisees, used to fast: and they come,
and say unto him, Why do the disciples of
John, and of the Pharisees fast, but thy dis-
ciples fast not?

19 And Jesus said unto them. Can the
children of the "bride-chamber fast, while
the bridegroom is with them? As long as
they have the bridegroom with them, they
cannot fast.

• 20 But the days will come, when the
bridegroom shall be taken away from them,
and then shall they fast in those days.

21 No man also seweth a piece of || new
cloth on an old garment : else the new
piece that filled it up, taketh away from the
old, and the rent is made worse.

bottles : else the new wine doth burst the
bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bot-
tles will be marred : but new wine must be
put into new bottles.

and his disciples began, as they went, ' to
pluck the ears of corn.

24 And the Pharisees said unto him, Be^

which is not lawful ?

25 And he said unto them. Have ye never
read "'what David did, when he had need,
and was an hungered, he and they that were
with him ?

26 How he went into the house of God,
in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and
did eat the shew-bread, "which is not lawful
to eat, but for the priests, and gave also to
them which were with him?

was made for man, and not man for the
sabbath :

also of the sabbath.

which had a withered hand.

would heal him on the sabbath-day; that
they might accuse him.

21 We mvst communicate the light of our knowledge
to others. 26 The parable of the seed growing se-
cretly, 30 and of the mustard-seed. 35 Christ stilleth
the tempest on the sea.

AND ■'he began again to teach by the
sea-side: and there was gathered unto
him a great multitade, so that he entered
into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the
whole multitude was by the sea, on the land,

2 And he taught them many things by
parables, '•and said unto them in his doctrine,

3 Hearken ; Behold, there went out a
sower to sow.

4 And it came to pass as he sowed, some
fell by the way-side, and the fowls of the air
came and devoured it up.

5 And some fell on stony ground, where
it had not much earth ; and immediately
it sprang up, because it had no depth of
earth :

6 But when the sun was up, it was
scorched; and be.cause it had no root, it
withered away.

7 And some fell among thorns, and the
thorns grew up, and choked it, and it
yielded no fruit.

8 And other fell on good ground, « and
did yield fruit that sprang up, and increased,
and brought forth, some thirty, and some
sixty, and some *an hundred.

9 And he said unto them. He that hath
ears to hear, let him hear.

10 ^ And when he was alone, they that
were about him, with the twelve, asked of
him the parable.

11 And he said unto them. Unto you it is
given to know the mystery of the kingdom
of God: but unto nhem that are without,
all these things are done in parables :

12 ''That seeing they may see, and not
perceive ; and hearing they may hear, and
not understand; lest at any time they should
be converted, and their sins should be for-
given them.

sown on stony ground ; who, when they have
heard the word, immediately receive it with
gladness ;

17 And have no root in themselves, and
so endure but for a time : afterward, when
affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's
sake, immediately they are offended.

18 And these are they which are sown
among thorns; such as hear the word,

19 And the cares of this world, ''and the
deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other
things entering in, choke the word, and it
becometh unfruitful.

20 And these are they which are sown on
good ground; such as hear the word, and
receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty-
fold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

brought to be put under a || bushel, or under
