Matthew 9

1 And he stepped into the ship and ferried over and came into his own city.

{Mar 2:1-12 & Mat 9:2-8 & Luk 5:17-26.} 2 And behold, they were bringing a paralytic to him, having been put upon a cot, and Jesus saw their faith said to the paralytic, Child, have courage; your sins have been forgiven to you.
3 And behold, some of the scribes said among themselves, This one is blaspheming. 4 And Jesus, having seen their contemplations said, Why are you* contemplating evil in your* hearts? 5 For* what is easier, to say, Your sins have been forgiven; or to say, Lift yourself up and walk? 6 But in order that you* may know that the Son of Man has authority upon the earth to forgive sins (then he says to the paralytic), After you have raised yourself up, lift up your cot and go away to your house. 7 And having raised himself up, he went away to his house. 8 Now after the crowds saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who gave such authority to men. {Mar 2:13-14 & Mat 9:9 & Luk 5:27-28 At or near Capernaum.} 9 And passing by from there, Jesus saw a man, called* Matthew, sitting at a tax-office and he says to him, Follow me. And he stood up and followed him.

{Mar 2:15-22 & Mat 9:10-17 & Luk 5:29-39 Capernaum.} 10 And it happened, while he was reclining at a meal in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and reclined together with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And after the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples, Why is your* teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?
12 But Jesus having heard it, said to them, Those who are strong have no need of a physician, but those who are ill. 13 Now while you* have traveled on, learn* what is meant by, 'I will to have mercy and not sacrifice. ' {Hos 6:6} For* I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 14 Then the disciples of John come near to him, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast much, but your disciples do not fast?
15 And Jesus said to them, The sons of the bridal-party {companions or guests} are not able to mourn, inasmuch as the bridegroom is with them, are they? But the days will come, whenever the bridegroom is taken away from them and then they will be fasting. 16 But no one puts a patch of unshrunk fabric upon an old garment; for* its fullness shrinks and lifts away from the garment and a worse split happens. 17 Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst and the wine is poured out and the wineskins will be destroyed, but they put new wine into new wineskins and both are protected together. {Mar 5:22-43 & Mat 9:18-26 & Luk 8:41-56 Capernaum.} 18 While speaking these things to them, behold, one ruler came to him and was worshiping him, saying, My daughter just now died*. But after you have gone to her, lay your hand upon her and she will live. 19 And Jesus and his disciples raised themselves up and followed him. 20 And behold, a woman, having had a flow of blood for twelve years, came near, behind him and touched the hem of his garment; 21 for* she was saying to herself, 'If only I touch his garment; I will be cured.
22 Now Jesus having turned, saw her, and said, Daughter, have courage; your faith has cured you. And the woman was cured from that hour. 23 And after Jesus came into the ruler's house and saw the flute-players and the crowd being in an uproar, 24 he says to them, Depart*; for* the girl is not dead, but is sleeping. And they were laughing at him. 25 But when the crowd was cast out, having entered, he took-hold of her hand, and the girl arose. 26 And this fame went forth into that whole land.

{Mat 9:27-34 Probably Capernaum; no parallel.} 27 And Jesus passing by from there, two blind men followed him, crying out and saying, Show-mercy to us, son of David!
28 Now he came into the house, the blind men came to him and Jesus says to them, You* believe that I am able to do this? They say to him, Yes, Lord. 29 Then he touched their eyes, saying, Let it happen for you* according to your* faith. 30 And their eyes were opened. And Jesus scolded them, saying, See* that you * let no one know it. 31 But they went forth and broadcasted about him in that whole land.
32 Now while they are going forth, behold, they brought a demon-possessed mute man to him. 33 And after the demon was cast out, the mute man spoke and the crowds marveled, saying, This was never* so seen in Israel. 34 But the Pharisees were saying, He is casting out demons by the ruler of the demons.

{Mar 6:6b-13 & Mat 9:35-10:42 & Luk 9:1-6 Third circuit of Galilee.} 35 And Jesus was proceeding around all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good-news of the kingdom and healing every disease and every illness among the people. 36 But after he saw the crowds, he had compassion concerning them, because they were bothered in spirit and were being tossed about, like sheep not having a shepherd. 37 Then he says to his disciples, The harvest is indeed large, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore beseech* from the Lord of the harvest, *that he should put out workers into his harvest.
