7 Blessed are the
for they shall obtain mercy
12 And forgive
us our debts, As we also have forgiven
13 And lead us not
into temptation, But deliver us from evil.
14 For if you forgive
men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
15 but if you do
not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your
getting into a boat he crossed over and came to his own city.
2 And behold, they brought to him a paralytic,
lying on his bed;
and when Jesus saw their faith he said to the
paralytic, "Take heart, my son; your sins
3 And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves,
"This man is blaspheming."
4 But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said,
"Why do you think
evil in your hearts?
5 For which is easier,
to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,'
or to say, 'Rise and walk'?
6 But that you may
know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive
sins" --he then said to the paralytic--
"Rise, take up your bed and go home."
10 And as he sat at table in the house, behold,
many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said
to his disciples,
"Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors
12 But when he heard it, he said, "Those
who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.
13 Go and learn
what this means,
'I desire mercy,
and not sacrifice.'
For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners."
1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields
on the sabbath; his disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck heads
of grain and to eat.
2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to
him, "Look, your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the sabbath."
3 He said to them,
"Have you not read what David did, when he was hungry, and those who were
4 how he entered
the house of God and ate the bread of the Presence, which it was not lawful
for him to eat nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests?
5 Or have you not
read in the law how on the sabbath the priests in the temple profane the
sabbath, and are guiltless?
6 I tell you, something
greater than the temple is here.
7 And if you had
known what this means, 'I desire mercy,
and not sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the guiltless.
8 For the Son of
man is lord of the sabbath."
31 Therefore I tell
you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven
but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not
32 And whoever says
a word against the Son of man will be forgiven;
but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven,
either in this age or in the age to come.
the disciples came and said to him, "Why do you speak to them in parables?"
11 And he answered them,
"To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven,
but to them it has not been given.
12 For to him who
has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has
not, even what he has will be taken away.
13 This is why I
speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing
they do not hear, nor do they understand.
15 "If your brother
sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone.
If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
16 But if he does
not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may
be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses.
17 If he refuses
to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even
to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
18 Truly, I say
to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever
you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say to
you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done
for them by my Father in heaven.
20 For where two
or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
21 Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord,
how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive
him? As many as seven times?"
22 Jesus said to him, "I
do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.
23 "Therefore the
kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts
with his servants.
24 When he began
the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents;
25 and as he could
not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and
all that he had, and payment to be made.
26 So the servant
fell on his knees, imploring him, 'Lord, have patience with me, and I will
pay you everything.'
27 And out of pity
for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave
him the debt.
28 But that same
servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed
him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, 'Pay what
29 So his fellow
servant fell down and besought him, 'Have patience with me, and I will
30 He refused and
went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt.
31 When his fellow
servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they
went and reported to their lord all that had taken place.
32 Then his lord
summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave
you all that debt because you besought me;
33 and should not
you have had mercy
on your fellow servant, as I had mercy
34 And in anger
his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt.
35 So also my heavenly
Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive
your brother from your heart."
23 "Woe to you, scribes
and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and
have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy
and faith; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
24 You blind guides,
straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!
33 And when they
came to a place called Gol'gotha (which means the place of a skull),
34 they offered
him wine to drink, mingled with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not
35 And when they
had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots;
36 then they sat down and kept watch over him
25 And whenever you stand praying, forgive,
if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in
heaven may forgive
you your trespasses
1 And when he returned to Caper'na-um after some
days, it was reported that he was at home.
2 And many were gathered together, so that there
was no longer room for them, not even about the door; and he was preaching
the word to them.
3 And they came, bringing to him a paralytic
carried by four men.
4 And when they could not get near him because
of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and when
they had made an opening, they let down
the pallet on which the paralytic lay.
5 And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the
paralytic, "My son, your sins are forgiven."
6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there,
questioning in their hearts,
7 "Why does this man speak thus? It is blasphemy!
Who can forgive sins but God alone?"
8 And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit
that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, "Why
do you question thus in your hearts?
9 Which is easier,
to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,'
or to say, 'Rise, take up your pallet and walk'?
10 But that you
may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive
sins" --he said to the paralytic--
11 "I say to you,
rise, take up your pallet and go home."
12 And he rose, and immediately took up the pallet
and went out before them all; so that they were all amazed and glorified
God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!"
15 And as he sat at table in his house, many tax
collectors and sinners were sitting with Jesus and his disciples; for there
were many who followed him.
16 And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they
saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples,
"Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?"
17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them,
who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick;
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners."
23 One sabbath he was going through the grainfields;
and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain.
24 And the Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are
they doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?"
25 And he said to them, "Have
you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and
those who were with him:
26 how he entered the house of God, when Abi'athar
was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful
for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with
27 And he said to them, "The
sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath;
28 so the Son of
man is lord even of the sabbath."
28 "Truly, I say
to you, all sins will be forgiven
the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter;
29 but whoever blasphemes
against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness,
but is guilty of an eternal sin" --
30 for they had
said, "He has an unclean spirit."
when he was alone, those who were about him with the twelve asked him concerning
11 And he said to them, "To
you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God,
but for those outside everything is in parables;
12 so that they
may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand;
lest they should turn again, and be forgiven."
22 And they brought
him to the place called Gol'gotha (which means the place of a skull).
23 And they offered
him wine mingled with myrrh; but he did not take it.
24 And they crucified
him, and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide
what each should take.
25 And it was the
third hour, when they crucified him.
35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend,
expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will
be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish.
36 Be merciful,
even as your Father is merciful.
37 "Judge not, and
you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive,
and you will be forgiven;
4 and forgive
us our sins, for we ourselves forgive
every one who is indebted to us; and lead us not into temptation."
17 On one of those days, as he was teaching, there were Pharisees and
teachers of the law sitting by, who had come from every village of Galilee
and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was with him to
18 And behold, men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and
they sought to bring him in and lay him before Jesus;
19 but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went
up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the
midst before Jesus.
20 And when he saw their faith he said,
"Man, your sins are forgiven
21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying,
"Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive
sins but God only?"
22 When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them,
"Why do you question in your hearts?
23 Which is easier,
to say, 'Your sins are forgiven
you,' or to say, 'Rise and walk'?
24 But that you may
know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive
sins" --he said to the man who was
paralyzed--"I say to you, rise, take up your bed
and go home."
25 And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he
lay, and went home, glorifying God.
26 And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled
with awe, saying, "We have seen strange things today."
29 And Levi made him a great feast in his house; and there was a large
company of tax collectors and others sitting at table with them.
30 And the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples,
"Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?"
31 And Jesus answered them, "Those who are well
have no need of a physician, but those who are sick;
32 I have not come
to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
1 On a sabbath, while he was going through the
grainfields, his disciples plucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing
them in their hands.
2 But some of the Pharisees said, "Why are you
doing what is not lawful to do on the sabbath?"
3 And Jesus answered, "Have
you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with
4 how he entered
the house of God, and took and ate the bread of the Presence, which it
is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those
5 And he said to them, "The
Son of man is lord of the sabbath."
10 And every one
who speaks a word against the Son of man will be forgiven;
but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
9 And when his disciples asked him what this parable
10 he said, "To you
it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God;
but for others they are in parables, so that seeing
they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.
3 Take heed to yourselves;
if your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive
4 and if he sins
against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, and says,
'I repent,' you must forgive
42 "But woe to you
Pharisees! for you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice
and the love of God;
these you ought to have done, without neglecting
33 And when they
came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified him,
and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left.
34 And Jesus said,
"Father, forgive them;
for they know not what they do." And they cast lots to divide his garments.
