 <<  Matius 9 >> 

1SO Jesus reembarked on the boat, crossed the lake, and came to his own town.

2Immediately some people arrived bringing him a paralytic lying flat on his bed. When Jesus saw the faith of those who brought him he said to the paralytic, "Cheer up, my son! Your sins are forgiven."

3At once some of the scribes said to themselves, "This man is blaspheming."

4But Jesus realised what they were thinking, and said to them, "Why must you have such evil thoughts in your minds?

5Do you think it is easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven, or Get up and walk'?

6But to make it quite plain that the Son of Man has full authority on earth to forgive sins"and here he spoke to the paralytic"Get up, pick up your bed and go home."

7And the man sprang to his feet and want home.

8When the crowds saw what had happened they were filled with awe and praised God for giving such power to men.

9Jesus left there and as he passed on he saw a man called Matthew sitting at his desk in the taxcollector's office. "Follow me!" he said to himand the man got to his feet and followed him.

10Later, as Jesus was in a home sitting at the dinnertable, many taxcollectors and other disreputable people came and joined him and his disciples.

11The Pharisees noticed this and said to the disciples, "Why does your master have his meals with taxcollectors and sinners?"

12But Jesus heard this and replied, "It is not the fit and flourishing who need the doctor, but those who are ill!

13You should go and learn what this text means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' In any case I did not come to invite the 'righteous' but the 'sinners'."

14Then John's disciples approached him with the question, "Why is it that we and the Pharisees observe the fasts, but your disciples do not?"

15"Can you expect weddingguests to mourn while they have the bridegroom with them?" replied Jesus. "The day will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from themthey will certainly fast then!

16"Nobody sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on to an old coat, for the patch will pull away from the coat and the hole will be worse than ever.

17Nor do people put new wine into old wineskinsotherwise the skins burst, the wine is spilt and the skins are ruined. But they put new wine into new skins and both are preserved."

18While he was saying these things to them an official came up to him and, bowing low before him, said, "My daughter has just this moment died. Please come and lay your hand on her and she will come back to life!"

19At this Jesus got to his feet and followed him, accompanied by his disciples.

20And on the way a woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years approached him from behind and touched the edge of his cloak.

21"If I can only touch his cloak," she kept saying to herself, "I shall be all right."

22But Jesus turned round and saw her. "Cheer up, my daughter," he said, "your faith has made you well!" And the woman was completely cured from that moment.

23Then when Jesus came into the official's house and noticed the fluteplayers and the noisy crowd

24he said, "You must all go outside; the little girl is not dead, she is fast asleep." This was met with scornful laughter.

25But when the crowd had been turned out, he came right into the room, took hold of her hand, and the girl got up.

26And this became the talk of the whole district.

27As Jesus passed on his way two blind men followed him with the cry, "Have pity on us, Son of David!"

28And when he had gone inside the house these two came up to him. "Do you believe I can do it?" he said to them. "Yes, Lord," they replied.

29Then he touched their eyes, saying, "You have believed and so it shall be."

30Then their sight returned, but Jesus sternly warned them, "Don't let anyone know about this."

31Yet they went outside and spread the story throughout the whole district.

32Later, when Jesus and his party were coming out, they brought to him a dumb man who was possessed by a devil.

33As soon as the devil had been ejected the dumb man began to talk. The crowds were simply amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel."

34But the Pharisees' comment was, "He throws out these devils because he is in league with the devil himself."

35Jesus now traveled through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of illness and disability.

36As he looked at the vast crowds he was deeply moved with pity for them, for they were as bewildered and miserable as a flock of sheep with no shepherd.

37"The harvest is great enough," he remarked to his disciples, "but the reapers are few.

38So you must pray to the Lord of the harvest to send men out to bring it in."
