1: And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was there a man having his hand dried up. 2: And they watched him if he would heal him on the sabbath, that they might accuse him. 3: And he says to the man who had his hand dried up, Rise up [and come] into the midst. 4: And he says to them, Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they were silent. 5: And looking round upon them with anger, distressed at the hardening of their heart, he says to the man, Stretch out thy hand. And he stretched [it] out, and his hand was restored. 6: And the Pharisees going out straightway with the Herodians took counsel against him, how they might destroy him. 7: And Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, 8: and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea and beyond the Jordan; and they of around Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, having heard what things he did, came to him. 9: And he spoke to his disciples, in order that a little ship should wait upon him on account of the crowd, that they might not press upon him. 10: For he healed many, so that they beset him that they might touch him, as many as had plagues. 11: And the unclean spirits, when they beheld him, fell down before him, and cried saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12: And he rebuked them much, that they might not make him manifest. 13: And he goes up into the mountain, and calls whom he himself would, and they went to him. 14: And he appointed twelve that they might be with him, and that he might send them to preach, 15: and to have power [to heal diseases, and] to cast out demons. 16: And he gave to Simon the surname of Peter; 17: and James the [son] of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and he gave them the surname of Boanerges, that is, Sons of thunder; 18: and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the [son] of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19: and Judas Iscariote, who also delivered him up. And they come to [the] house. 20: And again a crowd comes together, so that they cannot even eat bread. 21: And his relatives having heard [of it] went out to lay hold on him, for they said, He is out of his mind. 22: And the scribes who had come down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the prince of the demons he casts out demons. 23: And having called them to [him], he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24: And if a kingdom has become divided against itself, that kingdom cannot subsist. 25: And if a house has become divided against itself, that house cannot subsist. 26: And if Satan rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot subsist, but has an end. 27: But no one can, having entered into his house, plunder the goods of the strong [man] unless he first bind the strong [man], and then he will plunder his house. 28: Verily I say unto you, that all sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and all the injurious speeches [with] which they may speak injuriously; 29: but whosoever shall speak injuriously against the Holy Spirit, to eternity has no forgiveness; but lies under the guilt of an everlasting sin; 30: -- because they said, He has an unclean spirit. 31: And his brethren and his mother come, and standing without sent to him calling him. 32: And a crowd sat around him. And they said to him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren seek thee without. 33: And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother or my brethren? 34: And looking around in a circuit at those that were sitting around him, he says, Behold my mother and my brethren: 35: for whosoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.
