he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a
man there which had a withered hand.
3:2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him
on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
3:3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered
hand, Stand forth.
3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good
on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or
to kill? But they held their peace.
3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with
anger, being grieved for the hardness of their
hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine
hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was
restored whole as the other.
3:6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway
took counsel with the Herodians against him, how
they might destroy him.
3:7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to
the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed
him, and from Judaea,
3:8 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from
beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a
great multitude, when they had heard what great
things he did, came unto him.
3:9 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship
should wait on him because of the multitude, lest
they should throng him.
3:10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they
pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had
3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell
down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son
3:12 And he straitly charged them that they should
not make him known.
3:13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth
unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.
3:14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be
with him, and that he might send them forth to
3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to
cast out devils:
3:16 And Simon he surnamed Peter;
3:17 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the
brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges,
which is, The sons of thunder:
3:18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and
Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus,
and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
3:19 And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him:
and they went into an house.
3:20 And the multitude cometh together again, so
that they could not so much as eat bread.
3:21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out
to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside
3:22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem
said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the
devils casteth he out devils.
3:23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them
in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself,
that kingdom cannot stand.
3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that
house cannot stand.
3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be
divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
3:27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and
spoil his goods, except he will first bind the
strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be
forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies
wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy
Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of
3:30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
3:31 There came then his brethren and his mother,
and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
3:32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said
unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren
without seek for thee.
3:33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother,
or my brethren?
3:34 And he looked round about on them which sat
about him, and said, Behold my mother and my
3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the
same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
