Chapter 9

1

And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own 1city.
1 Matt 4:13, Matt 11:23, Mark 1:21, Mark 2:1, Luke 4:23, Luke 4:31, John 2:12

2

And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be 1forgiven thee.
1 Exod 34:7, Psa 32:1, Psa 130:4, Matt 6:12, Matt 26:28, Eph 1:7, 1st John 1:9

3

And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

4

And Jesus 1knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
1 Psa 139:2, Matt 12:15, Matt 12:25, Mark 12:15, Luke 5:22, Luke 6:8, Luke 9:47, Luke 11:17, Heb 4:13

5

For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

6

But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to 1forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
1 Acts 5:31

7

And he arose, and departed to his house.

8

But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

9

And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named 1Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
1 Mark 2:14, Luke 5:27

11

And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, 1Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
1 Mark 2:16, Luke 5:30, Luke 15:1

12

But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a 1physician, but they that are sick.
1 Hos 5:13, Hos 6:1, Hos 7:1

13

But go ye and learn what that meaneth, 1 I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but 2sinners to repentance.
1 Prov 21:3, Hos 6:6, Micah 6:6-8, Matt 12:7
2 Matt 18:11, Luke 19:10, Rom 5:8, 1st Tim 1:15, 1st John 3:5

14

Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees 1fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
1 Mark 2:18, Luke 5:33, Luke 18:12

15

And Jesus said unto them, Can the 1 children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and 2then shall they fast.
1 John 3:29
2 Acts 13:2, Acts 14:23, 1st Cor 7:5

16

No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

17

Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

18

While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain 1ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
1 Mark 5:22, Luke 8:41

19

And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.

20

And, behold, a 1woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
1 Mark 5:25, Luke 8:43

21

For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

22

But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy 1faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
1 Matt 9:29, Mark 5:34, Mark 10:52, Luke 7:50, Luke 8:48, Luke 17:19, Luke 18:42

23

And when Jesus 1came into the ruler's house, and 2saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
1 Mark 5:38, Luke 8:51
2 2nd Chron 35:25

24

He said unto them, 1Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
1 Acts 20:10

25

But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

26

And the 1fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
1 Isa 52:13

27

And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou 1son of David, have mercy on us.
1 Matt 15:22, Matt 20:30, Mark 10:47, Luke 18:38

28

And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

29

Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your 1faith be it unto you.
1 Matt 9:22, Mark 5:34, Mark 10:52, Luke 7:50, Luke 8:48, Luke 17:19, Luke 18:42

30

And their 1eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, 2See that no man know it.

31

But they, when they were departed, 1spread abroad his fame in all that country.
1 Mark 7:36

32

As they went out, behold, they brought to him a 1dumb man possessed with a devil.
1 Luke 11:14

33

And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

34

But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the 1prince of the devils.
1 2nd Kings 1:2, Matt 10:25, Matt 12:24, Mark 3:22, Luke 11:15

35

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, 1teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and 2healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
1 Mark 6:6, Luke 13:22
2 Matt 4:24, Mark 1:34

36

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with 1compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
1 Psa 86:15, Psa 111:4, Psa 145:8, Matt 14:14, Mark 1:41, Heb 2:17, Heb 4:15, Heb 5:2

37

Then saith he unto his disciples, The 1harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
1 Luke 10:2, John 4:35

38

Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
