3 Andbeholdcertain of the scribes said within themselvesThis man blasphemeth.
4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts saidWherefore think ye evilin your hearts
5 For whether is easierto sayThy sins be forgiven theeorto sayAriseand walk
6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earthto forgive sins then saith he to the sick of the palsyArisetake up thy bedand go unto thine house.

10 And it came to passas Jesus sat at meat in the housebeholdmany publicans and sinners came and sat down with himand his disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw itthey said unto his disciplesWhy eateth your Master with publicans and sinners
12 But when Jesus heard thathe said unto themThey that bewhole need not a physicianbut they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what that meanethI will have mercyandnot sacrificefor I am not come to call the righteousbutsinners to repentance.
14 Then came to him the disciples of JohnsayingWhy do we andthe Pharisees fast oftbut thy disciples fast not
15 And Jesus said unto themCan the children of the bridechambermournas long as the bridegroom is with thembut the dayswill comewhen the bridegroom shall be taken from themandthen shall they fast.
16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garmentforthat which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garmentand the rent is made worse.
17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottleselse the bottlesbreakand the wine runneth outand the bottles perishbutthey put new wine into new bottlesand both are preserved.
18 While he spake these things unto thembeholdthere came acertain rulerand worshipped himsayingMy daughter is evennow deadbut come and lay thy hand upon herand she shalllive.
