A Man with a Crippled Hand
(Matthew 12.9-14; Luke 6.6-11)
1 The next time that Jesus went into the meeting place, a man with a crippled hand was there.

1 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
2 The Pharisees
r 3.2 Pharisees: The Greek text has “they” (but see verse 6).
wanted to accuse Jesus of doing something wrong, and they kept watching to see if Jesus would heal him on the Sabbath.
2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
3 Jesus told the man to stand up where everyone could see him.
3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
Stand forth: Gr. Arise, stand forth in the midst
4 Then he asked, “On the Sabbath should we do good deeds or evil deeds? Should we save someone's life or destroy it?” But no one said a word. 4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
5 Jesus was angry as he looked around at the people. Yet he felt sorry for them because they were so stubborn. Then he told the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He did, and his bad hand was healed.
5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
hardness: or, blindness
6 The Pharisees left. And right away they started making plans with Herod's followers
s 3.6 Herod's followers: People who were political followers of the family of Herod the Great and his son Herod Antipas.
to kill Jesus.
6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
Large Crowds Come to Jesus
7 Jesus led his disciples down to the shore of the lake. Large crowds followed him from Galilee, Judea,
7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
8 and Jerusalem. People came from Idumea, as well as other places east of the Jordan River. They also came from the region around the cities of Tyre and Sidon. All of these crowds came because they had heard what Jesus was doing. 8 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
9 He even had to tell his disciples to get a boat ready to keep him from being crushed by the crowds.
3.9,10 Mk 4.1; Lk 5.1-3.
9 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
10 After Jesus had healed many people, the other sick people begged him to let them touch him.
10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
pressed: or, rushed
11 And whenever any evil spirits saw Jesus, they would fall to the ground and shout, “You are the Son of God!” 11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
12 But Jesus warned the spirits not to tell who he was. 12 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.
Jesus Chooses His Twelve Apostles
(Matthew 10.1-4; Luke 6.12-16)
13 Jesus decided to ask some of his disciples to go up on a mountain with him, and they went.
13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.
14 Then he chose twelve of them to be his apostles,
t 3.14 to be his apostles: These words are not in some manuscripts.
so that they could be with him. He also wanted to send them out to preach
14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
15 and to force out demons. 15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
16 Simon was one of the twelve, and Jesus named him Peter. 16 And Simon he surnamed Peter;
17 There were also James and John, the two sons of Zebedee. Jesus called them Boanerges, which means “Thunderbolts.” 17 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
18 Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus were also apostles. The others were Simon, known as the Eager One,
u 3.18 known as the Eager One: The Greek text has “Cananaean,” which probably comes from a Hebrew word meaning “zealous” (see Luke 6.15). “Zealot” was the name later given to the members of a Jewish group that resisted and fought against the Romans.
18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
19 and Judas Iscariot,
v 3.19 Iscariot: This may mean “a man from Kerioth” (a place in Judea). But more probably it means “a man who was a liar” or “a man who was a betrayer.”
who later betrayed Jesus.
19 And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
into...: or, home
Jesus and the Ruler of Demons
(Matthew 12.22-32; Luke 11.14-23; 12.10)
20 Jesus went back home,
w 3.20 went back home: Or “entered a house” (perhaps the home of Simon Peter).
and once again such a large crowd gathered that there was no chance even to eat.
20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
21 When Jesus' family heard what he was doing, they thought he was crazy and went to get him under control. 21 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
friends: or, kinsmen
22 Some teachers of the Law of Moses came from Jerusalem and said, “This man is under the power of Beelzebul, the ruler of demons! He is even forcing out demons with the help of Beelzebul.”
3.22 Mt 9.34; 10.25.
22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
23 Jesus told the people to gather around him. Then he spoke to them in riddles and said:
How can Satan force himself out?
23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 A nation whose people fight each other won't last very long. 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And a family that fights won't last long either. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 So if Satan fights against himself, that will be the end of him. 26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 How can anyone break into the house of a strong man and steal his things, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can take everything.
27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
28 I promise you that any of the sinful things you say or do can be forgiven, no matter how terrible those things are.
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
29 But if you speak against the Holy Spirit, you can never be forgiven. That sin will be held against you forever.
3.29 Lk 12.10.
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
30 Jesus said this because the people were saying that he had an evil spirit in him.
30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
Jesus' Mother and Brothers
(Matthew 12.46-50; Luke 8.19-21)
31 Jesus' mother and brothers came and stood outside. Then they sent someone with a message for him to come out to them.
31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
32 The crowd that was sitting around Jesus told him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters
x 3.32 and sisters: These words are not in some manuscripts.
are outside and want to see you.”
32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
33 Jesus asked, “Who is my mother and who are my brothers?”
33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34 Then he looked at the people sitting around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
35 Anyone who obeys God is my brother or sister or mother.” 35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
