American King James Version
Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
1And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. 2And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. 3And he said to the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. 4And he said to 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. 5And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he said to the man, Stretch forth your hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. 6And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
Great Crowds Follow Jesus
7But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, 8And 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 to him. 9And he spoke to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. 10For he had healed many; so that they pressed on him for to touch him, as many as had plagues. 11And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, You are the Son of God. 12And he straightly charged them that they should not make him known.
The Twelve Apostles
13And he goes up into a mountain, and calls to him whom he would: and they came to him. 14And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, 15And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: 16And Simon he surnamed Peter; 17And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: 18And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, 19And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
A House Divided
20And the multitude comes together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself. 22And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casts he out devils. 23And he called them to him, and said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. 27No 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.
The Unpardonable Sin
28Truly I say to you, All sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and blasphemies with which soever they shall blaspheme: 29But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost has never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. 30Because they said, He has an unclean spirit.
Jesus' Mother and Brothers
31There came then his brothers and his mother, and, standing without, sent to him, calling him. 32And the multitude sat about him, and they said to him, Behold, your mother and your brothers without seek for you. 33And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brothers? 34And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brothers! 35For whoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
