Christ healeth the withered hand,
Mark 3:1 And he entred againe into ye Synagogue, & there was a man which had a withered had. Mark 3:2 And they watched him, whether he would heale him on the Sabbath day, that they might accuse him. Mark 3:3 Then he saide vnto the man which had the withered hand, Arise: stand forth in the middes. Mark 3:4 And he saide to them, Is it lawfull to doe a good deede on the Sabbath day, or to doe euil? to saue the life, or to kil? But they held their peace. Mark 3:5 Then hee looked rounde about on them angerly, mourning also for the hardnesse of their hearts, and saide to the man, Stretch foorth thine hand; he stretched it out: and his hande was restored, as whole as the other. Mark 3:6 And the Pharises departed, & straightway gathered a councill with the Herodians against him, that they might destroy him. Mark 3:7 But Iesus auoided with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude followed him from Galile, and from Iudea, Mark 3:8 And from Ierusalem, & from Idumea, and beyonde Iordan: and they that dwelled about Tyrus & Sidon, when they had heard what great things he did, came vnto him in great number. Mark 3:9 And he commanded his disciples, that a litle shippe should waite for him, because of the multitude, lest they shoulde throng him.
and many other infirmities:
Mark 3:10 For hee had healed many, in so much that they preassed vpon him to touch him, as many as had plagues.
rebuketh the unclean spirits:
Mark 3:11 And when the vncleane spirits sawe him, they fel downe before him, & cried, saying, Thou art the Sonne of God. Mark 3:12 And he sharply rebuked them, to the ende they should not vtter him.
chooseth his twelve Apostles:
Mark 3:13 Then hee went vp into a mountaine, and called vnto him whome he woulde, and they came vnto him. Mark 3:14 And hee appoynted twelue that they should be with him, and that he might send them to preache, Mark 3:15 And that they might haue power to heale sicknesses, and to cast out deuils. Mark 3:16 And the first was Simon, and hee named Simon, Peter, Mark 3:17 Then Iames the sonne of Zebedeus, & Iohn Iames brother (and surnamed them Boanerges, which is, the sonnes of thunder,) Mark 3:18 And Andrew, and Philippe, & Bartlemew, and Matthewe, and Thomas, and Iames, the sonne of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Cananite, Mark 3:19 And Iudas Iscariot, who also betraied him, and they came home. Mark 3:20 And the multitude assembled againe, so that they could not so much as eate bread. Mark 3:21 And when his kinsfolkes heard of it, they went out to laie hold on him: for they sayde that he was beside himselfe.
convinceth the blasphemy of casting out devils by Beelzebub:
Mark 3:22 And the Scribes which came downe fro Hierusalem, saide, He hath Beelzebub, & through the prince of the deuils he casteth out deuils. Mark 3:23 But he called them vnto him, and said vnto them in parables, How can Satan driue out Sata? Mark 3:24 For if a kingdome bee deuided against it selfe, that kingdome can not stand. Mark 3:25 Or if a house bee deuided against it selfe, that house can not continue. Mark 3:26 So if Satan make insurrection against himselfe, and be deuided, hee can not endure but is at an ende. Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong mans house, and take away his goods, except hee first binde that strong man, and then spoyle his house. Mark 3:28 Verely I say vnto you, all sinnes shalbe forgiuen vnto the children of men, and blasphemies, wherewith they blaspheme: Mark 3:29 But hee that blasphemeth against the holy Ghost, shall neuer haue forgiuenesse, but is culpable of eternall damnation. Mark 3:30 Because they saide, Hee had an vncleane spirit.
and sheweth who are his brother, sister, and mother.
Mark 3:31 Then came his brethren and mother, and stoode without, and sent vnto him, and called him. Mark 3:32 And the people sate about him, and they said vnto him, Beholde, thy mother, and thy brethren seeke for thee without. Mark 3:33 But hee answered them, saying, Who is my mother and my brethren? Mark 3:34 And hee looked rounde about on them, which sate in compasse about him, and saide, Beholde my mother and my brethren. Mark 3:35 For whosoeuer doeth the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
