NASB — Matthew 9 — KJV

A Paralytic Healed

1 Getting into a boat, Jesus crossed over [the sea] and came to aHis own city.

[1] aMt 4:13; Mk 5:21

2aAnd they brought to Him a bparalytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, cTake courage, Ison; dyour sins are forgiven.” 3 And some of the scribes said Ito themselves, “This [fellow] ablasphemes.” 4 And Jesus aknowing their thoughts said, “Why are you thinking evil in your hearts? 5 Which is easier, to say, ‘aYour sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, and walk’? 6 But so that you may know that athe Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins—then He *said to the bparalytic, “Get up, pick up your bed and go home.” 7 And he got up and Iwent home. 8 But when the crowds saw [this], they were Iawestruck, and aglorified God, who had given such authority to men.

9aAs Jesus went on from there, He saw a man called bMatthew, sitting in the tax collector’s booth; and He *said to him, cFollow Me!” And he got up and followed Him.

10 ¶ Then it happened that as IJesus was reclining [at the table] in the house, behold, many tax collectors and IIsinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw [this], they said to His disciples, “aWhy is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?” 12 But when Jesus heard [this], He said, “[It is] not athose who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. 13 But go and learn Iawhat this means: ‘bI DESIRE IICOMPASSION, IIIAND NOT SACRIFICE,’ for cI did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

The Question about Fasting

14 ¶ Then the disciples of John *came to Him, asking, “Why do we and athe Pharisees fast, but Your disciples do not fast?” 15 And Jesus said to them, “The Iattendants of the bridegroom cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. 16 But no one puts Ia patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for IIthe patch pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear results. 17 Nor do [people] put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

18aWhile He was saying these things to them, Ia [synagogue] IIofficial came and IIIbbowed down before Him, and said, “My daughter has just died; but come and lay Your hand on her, and she will live.” 19 Jesus got up and [began] to follow him, and [so did] His disciples.

Christ curing the sick of the palsy,

2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. 3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This [man] blasphemeth. 4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? 5 For whether is easier, to say, [Thy] sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. 7 And he arose, and departed to his house. 8 But when the multitudes saw [it], they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

10 ¶ And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw [it], they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heard [that], he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what [that] meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

defendeth his disciples for not fasting,

14 ¶ Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. 16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

They said unto him, Yea, Lord. 29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. 30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See [that] no man know [it]. 31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.
