1: And he entered again into the synagogue, and there was there a man having the hand withered, 2: and they were watching him, whether on the sabbaths he will heal him, that they might accuse him. 3: And he saith to the man having the hand withered, 'Rise up in the midst.' 4: And he saith to them, 'Is it lawful on the sabbaths to do good, or to do evil? life to save, or to kill?' but they were silent. 5: And having looked round upon them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their heart, he saith to the man, 'Stretch forth thy hand;' and he stretched forth, and his hand was restored whole as the other; 6: and the Pharisees having gone forth, immediately, with the Herodians, were taking counsel against him how they might destroy him. 7: And Jesus withdrew with his disciples unto the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judea, 8: and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea and beyond the Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon -- a great multitude -- having heard how great things he was doing, came unto him. 9: And he said to his disciples that a little boat may wait on him, because of the multitude, that they may not press upon him, 10: for he did heal many, so that they threw themselves on him, in order to touch him -- as many as had plagues; 11: and the unclean spirits, when they were seeing him, were falling down before him, and were crying, saying -- 'Thou art the Son of God;' 12: and many times he was charging them that they might not make him manifest. 13: And he goeth up to the mountain, and doth call near whom he willed, and they went away to him; 14: and he appointed twelve, that they may be with him, and that he may send them forth to preach, 15: and to have power to heal the sicknesses, and to cast out the demons. 16: And he put on Simon the name Peter; 17: and James of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and he put on them names -- Boanerges, that is, 'Sons of thunder;' 18: and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Cananite, 19: and Judas Iscariot, who did also deliver him up; and they come into a house. 20: And come together again doth a multitude, so that they are not able even to eat bread; 21: and his friends having heard, went forth to lay hold on him, for they said that he was beside himself, 22: and the scribes who [are] from Jerusalem having come down, said -- 'He hath Beelzeboul,' and -- 'By the ruler of the demons he doth cast out the demons.' 23: And, having called them near, in similes he said to them, 'How is the Adversary able to cast out the Adversary? 24: and if a kingdom against itself be divided, that kingdom cannot be made to stand; 25: and if a house against itself be divided, that house cannot be made to stand; 26: and if the Adversary did rise against himself, and hath been divided, he cannot be made to stand, but hath an end. 27: 'No one is able the vessels of the strong man -- having entered into his house -- to spoil, if first he may not bind the strong man, and then his house he will spoil. 28: 'Verily I say to you, that all the sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and evil speakings with which they might speak evil, 29: but whoever may speak evil in regard to the Holy Spirit hath not forgiveness -- to the age, but is in danger of age-during judgment;' 30: because they said, 'He hath an unclean spirit.' 31: Then come do his brethren and mother, and standing without, they sent unto him, calling him, 32: and a multitude was sitting about him, and they said to him, 'Lo, thy mother and thy brethren without do seek thee.' 33: And he answered them, saying, 'Who is my mother, or my brethren?' 34: And having looked round in a circle to those sitting about him, he saith, 'Lo, my mother and my brethren! 35: for whoever may do the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and mother.'
