Christ curing the sick of the palsy,
Matthew 9:2 And beholde, they brought to him a man, sicke of the paulsie, lying in a bedde. And when Iesus sawe the fayth of them, he sayde vnto the sicke of the paulsie: Sonne, be of good cheare, thy sinnes be forgeuen thee. Matthew 9:3 And beholde, certayne of the Scribes sayde, within them selues: This man blasphemeth. Matthew 9:4 And whe Iesus saw their thoughtes, he sayde: Wherefore thynke ye euyll in your heartes? Matthew 9:5 Whether is easyer to say, thy sinnes be forgeuen thee? Or to say, aryse and walke? Matthew 9:6 But that ye may knowe, that the sonne of man hath power to forgeue sinnes in earth (then sayde he to the sicke of the paulsie) Aryse, take vp thy bedde, and go vnto thyne house. Matthew 9:7 And he arose, and departed to his house. Matthew 9:8 But when the multitudes sawe it, they marueyled, & glorified God, which had geuen such power vnto men.

Matthew 9:10 And it came to passe, as Iesus sate at meate in his house, beholde, many publicans also and sinners came, and sate downe with Iesus and his disciples.

Matthew 9:12 But when Iesus hearde that, he sayde vnto them: They that be whole, nede not the phisition, but they that are sicke. Matthew 9:13 Go ye, and learne what that meaneth, I wyll [haue] mercie, and not sacrifice: for I am not come, to call the righteous, but sinners to repentaunce.
defendeth his disciples for not fasting,
Matthew 9:14 Then came the disciples of Iohn vnto hym, saying: Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

But the dayes wyll come, when the brydegrome shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. Matthew 9:16 No man putteth a peece of newe cloth in an olde garment: for then, the peece taketh away [somethyng] from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Matthew 9:17 Neither do men put newe wine into olde vessels: els, the vessels breake, and the wyne runneth out, and the vessels peryshe: But they put newe wyne, into newe vessels, and both are preserued together.

Matthew 9:22 But Iesus turned hym about, and when he sawe her, he saide: Daughter be of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee safe. And the woman was made whole from that same houre.)
raiseth from death Jairus' daughter,
Matthew 9:23 And, when Iesus came into the rulers house, and sawe the minstrels, and the people, makyng a noyse, Matthew 9:24 He sayde vnto them: Geue place, for the maide is not dead, but slepeth. And they laughed hym to scorne. Matthew 9:25 But when the people were put foorth, he went in, and toke her by the hande, and the mayde arose.

giveth sight to two blind men,
Matthew 9:27 And when Iesus departed thence, two blynde men folowed hym, crying, and saying: O thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercy on vs. Matthew 9:28 And whe he was come into the house, the blynde came to hym. And Iesus sayth vnto them: Beleue ye that I am able to do this? They sayde vnto hym, yea Lorde. Matthew 9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying: Accordyng to your fayth, be it vnto you.

Matthew 9:34 But the Pharisees sayde: He casteth out deuils, through the prince of deuils. Matthew 9:35 And Iesus went about all cities and townes, teachyng in their synagogues, and preachyng the Gospell of the kyngdome, and healyng euery sicknesse, and euery disease among the people.
and hath compassion of the multitude.

Matthew 9:37 Then sayth he vnto his disciples: the haruest truely is plenteous, but the labourers are fewe. Matthew 9:38 Pray [ye] therfore the lorde of the haruest, that he wyl thrust foorth labourers into the haruest.
