Christ healeth one sick of the palsy:
Mark 2:1 After [a fewe] dayes also, he entred into Capernaum agayne, and it was noysed yt he was in the house. Mark 2:2 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. Mark 2:3 And they came vnto hym, bryngyng one sicke of the paulsie, whiche was borne of foure men. Mark 2:4 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. Mark 2:5 When Iesus sawe their fayth, he saide vnto the sicke of the paulsie: Sonne, thy synnes be forgeuen thee. Mark 2:6 But there were certayne of the scribes syttyng there, and reasonyng in theyr heartes: Mark 2:7 Why doeth he thus speake blasphemies? Who can forgeue sinnes, but God only? Mark 2:8 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? Mark 2:9 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? Mark 2:10 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) Mark 2:11 I saye vnto thee, aryse, and take vp thy bedde, and get thee hence vnto thine house. Mark 2:12 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. Mark 2:13 And he went againe vnto the sea: and all the people resorted vnto him, and he taught them.
calleth Matthew from the receipt of custom:
Mark 2:14 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.
eateth with publicans and sinners:
Mark 2:15 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. Mark 2:16 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? Mark 2:17 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.
excuseth his disciples for not fasting,
Mark 2:18 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? Mark 2:19 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. Mark 2:20 But the dayes wyll come, when the brydegrome shalbe taken awaye from them, and then shall they fast in those dayes. Mark 2:21 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. Mark 2:22 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 for plucking the ears of corn on the Sabbath day.
Mark 2:23 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. Mark 2:24 And the pharisees sayde vnto hym: Beholde, why do they on the Sabboth dayes, that which is not lawfull? Mark 2:25 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? Mark 2:26 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? Mark 2:27 And he sayde vnto them: The Sabboth was made for man, and not man for the Sabboth. Mark 2:28 Therfore is the sonne of man, Lorde also of the Sabboth.
