And anone many were gathered together, in somuch that nowe there was no rowme to receaue them, no, not so muche as about the dore: and he preached the word vnto them.
And they came vnto hym, bryngyng one sicke of the paulsie, whiche was borne of foure men.
And when they coulde not come nye vnto hym for prease, they vncouered the roofe [of the house] that he was in: And whe they had broken vp the roofe, they dyd [with cordes] let downe the bedde, wherin the sicke of the paulsie lay.
When Iesus sawe their fayth, he saide vnto the sicke of the paulsie: Sonne, thy synnes be forgeuen thee.
But there were certayne of the scribes syttyng there, and reasonyng in theyr heartes:
Why doeth he thus speake blasphemies?
Who can forgeue sinnes, but God only?
And immediatly, when Iesus perceaued in his spirite, that they so reasoned within them selues, he saith vnto them: why reason ye suche thynges in your heartes?
Whether is it easyer to say to the sicke of the paulsie, thy synnes be forgeuen thee: or to say, aryse, take vp thy bedde, and walke?
But that ye may know, that the sonne of man hath power in earth to forgeue synnes (He spake vnto the sicke of the paulsie)
I saye vnto thee, aryse, and take vp thy bedde, and get thee hence vnto thine house.
And immediatly he arose, toke vp the bedde, and went foorth before them all: insomuch that they were all amazed, & glorified God, saying: we neuer sawe it on this fashion.
And he went againe vnto the sea: and all the people resorted vnto him, and he taught them.
And as Iesus passed bye, he sawe Leui [the sonne] of Alphee, sittyng at the receipt of custome, and sayde vnto hym: folowe me.
And he arose, and folowed hym.
And it came to passe, that when Iesus sate at meate in his house, many publicanes and sinners sate also together at meate with Iesus and his disciples: for there were many that folowed him.
And when the scribes and pharisees sawe hym eate with publicanes and sinners, they saide vnto his disciples: howe is it that he eateth and drynketh with publicanes and synners?
When Iesus hearde that, he saide vnto them: They that be whole, haue no nede of the phisition, but they that are sicke: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentaunce.
And the disciples of Iohn, & the Pharisees dyd fast.
And they come, and say vnto him: Why do ye disciples of Iohn, and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
And Iesus sayde vnto them: Can the chyldren of the brydechaumber fast, whyle the brydegrome is with them?
As long as they haue the brydegrome with them, they can not fast.
But the dayes wyll come, when the brydegrome shalbe taken awaye from them, and then shall they fast in those dayes.
No man also soweth a peece of newe cloth, vnto an olde garment: otherwayes, his newe peece taketh awaye from the olde, and so the rent is made worse.
And no man powreth newe wine into olde vessels: els the newe wine doth burst the vessels, and the wine runneth out, and the vessels are marred: But newe wine, must be put into newe vessels.
And it came to passe, that he went thorowe the corne fieldes on the Sabboth dayes, and his disciples began by ye way to plucke the eares of corne.
And the pharisees sayde vnto hym: Beholde, why do they on the Sabboth dayes, that which is not lawfull?
And he sayde vnto them: Haue ye neuer read what Dauid did, when he had nede, and was an hungred, both he, and they that were with hym?
Howe he went into the house of God [in the dayes] of Abiathar the hye prieste, and dyd eate the shewe bread, which is not lawfull to eate, but for the priestes, and gaue also to them which were with hym?
And he sayde vnto them: The Sabboth was made for man, and not man for the Sabboth.
Therfore is the sonne of man, Lorde also of the Sabboth.
