Berean Literal Bible
Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
But they were silent.
5And having looked around on them with anger, being grieved at the hardness of their heart, He says to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
6And the Pharisees having gone out, immediately began to take counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
Multitudes Follow Jesus
7And Jesus withdrew with His disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed, and from Judea, 8and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and beyond the Jordan, and around Tyre and Sidon. A great multitude came to Him, having heard how much He was doing.
9And He spoke to His disciples, that a boat might wait upon Him, on account of the crowd, that they might not press upon Him. 10For He healed many, so as for as many as had diseases to press upon Him, that they might touch Him. 11And the unclean spirits, whenever they beheld Him, were falling down before Him and crying out, saying, “You are the Son of God.” 12And He would rebuke them much, so that they should not make Him known.
The Twelve Apostles
13And He goes up on the mountain and calls near those whom He Himself wanted, and they went to Him. 14And He appointed twelve ones, and He called them apostles, that they might be with Him, and that He might send them to preach, 15and to have authority to cast out demons.
16And He appointed the Twelve; and to Simon He added the name Peter; 17and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and He added to them the name Boanerges, which is, Sons of Thunder; 18and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot, 19and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
A House Divided
20And He comes to a house, and a crowd comes together again, so that not even are they able to eat bread. 21And those belonging to Him having heard, went out to seize Him; for they were saying, “He is out of His mind.”
22And the scribes, those having come down from Jerusalem, were saying, “He has Beelzebul,” and “By the prince of the demons He casts out the demons.”
23And having called them to Him, He began speaking to them in parables: “How is Satan able to cast out Satan? 24And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom is not able to stand. 25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26And if Satan has risen up against himself and has been divided, he is not able to stand, but is coming to an end. 27But no one is able, having entered into the house of the strong man, to plunder his goods, unless first he binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
The Unpardonable Sin
28Truly I say to you that all sins and blasphemies will be forgiven the sons of men, as many as they shall have blasphemed. 29But whoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit does not have forgiveness, to the age, but is guilty of eternal sin.”
30For they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”
Jesus' Mother and Brothers
31And His mother and His brothers arrive, and standing outside, sent to Him, calling Him. 32And a crowd was sitting around Him, and they said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothersa outside are seeking You.”
33And He answering them says, “Who are My mother and My brothers?”
34And having looked around on those who were sitting around Him in a circle, He says, “Behold, My mother and My brothers!
35For whoever shall do the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.”
