The Gospel of Mark 2

2And having entered again into Capernaum after some days, it was heard that he is in a house. 2And many gathered so that there was no more space, not even at the door, and he began to speak the word to them. 3And they come bringing to him a paralytic, being carried by four men. 4And not being able to approach him because of the crowd, they removed the roof where he was, and having dug an opening, they lower the mat where the paralytic was lying. 5And Jesus, having seen their faith, says to the paralytic, “Child, your sins are forgiven.” 6But some of the scribes were sitting there and debating in their hearts, 7“Why does this one speak this way? He is blaspheming! Who is able to forgive sins except one, God?” 8And immediately, Jesus, having perceived in his spirit that they are debating in this manner within themselves, says to them, “Why are you debating these things in your hearts? 9Which is easier to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven’ or to say, ‘Get up and take up your mat, and walk’? 10But in order that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on the earth to forgive sins,”—he says to the paralytic— 11“I say to you, get up, pick up your mat, and go to your house.” 12And having gotten up and immediately having taken up the mat, he went out in front of everyone, so that they are all amazed and glorify God, saying, “We never saw thus.”

13And he went out again beside the sea, and all the crowd was coming to him, and he was teaching them. 14And passing by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s office, and he says to him, “Follow me.” And having gotten up, he followed him.

15And he happened to recline to eat in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners were dining with Jesus and his disciples, for many also were following him. 16And the scribes of the Pharisees, having seen that he was eating with the sinners and tax collectors, began to say to his disciples, “Why is he eating with the tax collectors and sinners?” 17And having heard this, Jesus says to them, “The ones being healthy do not have need of a physician, but the ones having sickness. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

18And the disciples of John and the Pharisees were fasting, and they come and say to him, “For what reason do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” 19And Jesus said to them, “The sons of the bridal chamber are not able to fast while the bridegroom is still with them, are they? As much time as they have the bridegroom with them, they are not able to fast. 20But days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and in those days, then they will fast. 21No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, but if not, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear happens. 22And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, but if not, the wine will burst the wineskins and the wine and the wineskins will be destroyed, but new wine into new wineskins.”

23And he happened on the Sabbaths to pass through the grainfields, and his disciples began to make their way, picking the heads of grain. 24And the Pharisees were saying to him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbaths?” 25And he says to them, “Have you never read what David did when he had need and was hungry, he and the ones with him— 26how he went into the house of God during Abiathar the high priest and ate the bread of the presence, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and he also gave to the ones being with him?” 27And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. 28Therefore, the Son of Man is Lord, even of the Sabbath.”
