Christ heals the sick of the palsy. He calls Matthew and excuses his

2:1. And again he entered into Capharnaum after some days.

2:2. And it was heard that he was in the house. And many came together,
so that there was no room: no, not even at the door. And he spoke to
them the word.

2:3. And they came to him, bringing one sick of the palsy, who was
carried by four.

2:4. And when they could not offer him unto him for the multitude, they
uncovered the roof where he was: and opening it, they let down the bed
wherein the man sick of the palsy lay.

2:5. And when Jesus had seen their faith, he saith to the sick of the
palsy: Son, thy sins are forgiven thee.

2:6. And there were some of the scribes sitting there and thinking in
their hearts:

2:7. Why doth this man speak thus? He blasphemeth. Who can forgive sins,
but God only?

2:8. Which Jesus presently knowing in his spirit that they so thought
within themselves, saith to them: Why think you these things in your

2:9. Which is easier, to say to the sick of the palsy: Thy sins are
forgiven thee; or to say: Arise, take up thy bed and walk?

2:10. But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to
forgive sins (he saith to the sick of the palsy):

2:11. I say to thee: Arise. Take up thy bed and go into thy house.

2:12. And immediately he arose and, taking up his bed, went his way in
the sight of all: so that all wondered and glorified God, saying: We
never saw the like.

2:13. And he went forth again to the sea side: and all the multitude
came to him. And he taught them.

2:14. And when he was passing by, he saw Levi, the son of Alpheus,
sitting at the receipt of custom; and he saith to him: Follow me. And
rising up, he followed him.

2:15. And it came to pass as he sat at meat in his house, many Publicans
and sinners sat down together with Jesus and his disciples. For they,
with Jesus who also followed him. For they were many, who also followed

2:16. And the scribes and the Pharisees, seeing that he ate with
publicans and sinners, said to his disciples: Why doth your master eat
and drink with publicans and sinners?

2:17. Jesus hearing this, saith to them: They that are well have no need
of a physician, but they that are sick. For I came not to call the just,
but sinners.

2:18. And the disciples of John and the Pharisees used to fast. And
they come and say to him: Why do the disciples of John and of the
Pharisees fast; but thy disciples do not fast?

2:19. And Jesus saith to them: Can the children of the marriage fast, as
long as the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom
with them, they cannot fast.

2:20. But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away
from them: and then they shall fast in those days.

2:21. No man seweth a piece of raw cloth to an old garment: otherwise
the new piecing taketh away from the old, and there is made a greater

2:22. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: otherwise the wine
will burst the bottles, and both the wine will be spilled and the
bottles will be lost. But new wine must be put into new bottles.
