Christ healeth the withered hand,
Mark 3:1 And he entred agayne into the synagogue, & a man was there whiche had a wythered hande: Mark 3:2 And they watched hym, whether he woulde heale hym on the Sabboth daye, that they myght accuse hym. Mark 3:3 And he saide vnto the man which had the wythered hande: Aryse, [and stande] in the myddes. Mark 3:4 And he saide vnto them: Is it lawful to do good on the Sabboth dayes, or to do euyl? to saue lyfe, or to kyll? But they helde their peace. Mark 3:5 And when he had loked rounde about on them with anger, mournyng for the hardnesse of their heartes, he sayth to the man: stretch foorth thyne hande. And he stretched it out: And his hande was restored, euen as whole as the other. Mark 3:6 And the pharisees departed, and strayghtway gathered a councell, with the Herodians, agaynst hym, that they myght destroy hym. Mark 3:7 But Iesus auoyded, with his disciples, to the sea: And a great multitude folowed hym from Galilee, and from Iurie, Mark 3:8 And from Hierusalem, & from Idumea, and from beyonde Iordane, and they that dwelled about Tyre & Sidon, a great multitude [of men:] Which, whe they had hearde what thynges he dyd, came vnto hym. Mark 3:9 And Iesus comaunded his disciples, that a shippe shoulde wayte on hym, because of the people, leste they shoulde thronge hym.
and many other infirmities:
Mark 3:10 For he had healed many: insomuche, that they preassed vpon him for to touch hym, as many as had plagues.
rebuketh the unclean spirits:
Mark 3:11 And when the vncleane spirites sawe hym, they fell downe before hym, and cryed, saying: Thou art the sonne of God. Mark 3:12 And he straytely charged them, that they shoulde not make hym knowen.
chooseth his twelve Apostles:
Mark 3:13 And he went vp into a mountayne, & called vnto him whom he woulde: and they came vnto hym. Mark 3:14 And he ordeyned twelue, that they shoulde be with him, and that he might sende them foorth to preache, Mark 3:15 And that they myght haue power to heale sicknesses, and to cast out deuyls. Mark 3:16 And he gaue vnto Simon to name, Peter. Mark 3:17 And he called Iames [the sonne] of Zebedee, and Iohn, Iames brother (and gaue them to name Boanarges, which is to say, the sonnes of thunder.) Mark 3:18 And Andrewe, and Philip, and Bartholomewe, and Matthewe, and Thomas, and Iames the sonne of Alphee, and Thaddeus, and Simon Cananite, Mark 3:19 And Iudas Iscariot, which also betrayed hym. And they came into the house: Mark 3:20 And the people assembled together agayne, so that they had no leysure so much as to eate bread. Mark 3:21 And when they that belonged vnto hym, hearde of it, they went out to laye handes vpon hym: For they sayde, he is madde.
convinceth the blasphemy of casting out devils by Beelzebub:
Mark 3:22 And the scribes whiche came downe from Hierusalem, sayde: He hath Beelzebub, and by the chiefe deuyll, casteth he out deuyls. Mark 3:23 And he called them vnto hym, & sayde vnto them in parables: Howe can Satan driue out Satan? Mark 3:24 And yf a realme be deuided agaynst it selfe, that realme can not endure. Mark 3:25 And yf a house be deuided agaynst it selfe, that house can not continue. Mark 3:26 And yf Satan make insurrection agaynst him selfe & be deuided, he can not continue, but hath an ende. Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong mans house, and take away his goodes, except he first bynde the strong man, and then spoyle his house. Mark 3:28 Ueryly I say vnto you, al sinnes shalbe forgeuen vnto the chyldren of men, & blasphemies wherewith so euer they haue blasphemed: Mark 3:29 But he that speaketh blasphemie agaynst the holy ghoste, hath neuer forgeuenesse, but is in daunger of eternall dampnation. Mark 3:30 For they sayde: he hath an vncleane spirite.
and sheweth who are his brother, sister, and mother.
Mark 3:31 There came also his mother, and his brethren, and stoode without, and sent vnto hym, to call hym out. Mark 3:32 And the people sate about him, & saide vnto hym: Beholde, thy mother and thy brethren seke for thee without. Mark 3:33 And he aunswered them, saying: who is my mother, and my brethren? Mark 3:34 And when he had loked rounde about on his disciples, which sate in compasse about hym, he sayde: Beholde my mother, and my brethren. Mark 3:35 For whosoeuer doeth the wyl of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
