Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

1 Now R272 it happened that He was passing through some grainfields on a Sabbath; and His disciples were R273 picking the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating the grain. 2 But some of the Pharisees said, "Why do you do what is R274 not lawful on the Sabbath?" 3 And Jesus answering them said, "Have you not even read what R275 David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him, 4 how he entered the house of God, and took and ate the consecrated F124 bread which is R276 not lawful for any to eat except the priests alone, and gave it to his companions?" 5 And He was saying to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."

6 On R277 another Sabbath He entered the R278 synagogue and was teaching; and there was a man there whose F125 right hand was withered. 7 The scribes and the Pharisees were R279 watching Him closely to see if He healed on the Sabbath, so that they might find reason to accuse Him. 8 But He knew R280 what F126 they were thinking, and He said to the man with the withered hand, "Get up and come F127 forward!" And he got up and came F128 forward. 9 And Jesus said to them, "I ask you, is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to destroy it?" 10 After looking R281 around at them all, He said to him, "Stretch out your hand!" And he did so; and his hand was restored. 11 But they themselves were filled with rage, F129 and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

Choosing the Twelve

12 It was at F130 this time that He went off to the R282 mountain to pray, R283 and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. 13 And when day came, He R284 called His disciples to Him and chose twelve of them, whom He also named as apostles: R285 14 Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; and James F131 and John; and Philip and Bartholomew; 15 and Matthew R286 and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot; 16 Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

17 Jesus came R287 down with them and stood on a level place; and there was a R288 large crowd of His disciples, and a great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre R289 and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were being cured. 19 And all the people F132 were trying to touch R290 Him, for power R291 was coming from Him and healing them all.

The Beatitudes

20 And turning His gaze toward His disciples, He began to say, "Blessed R292 are you F133 who are poor, for yours R293 is the kingdom of God. 21 "Blessed are you F134 who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. 22 "Blessed R294 are you when men hate you, and ostracize R295 you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. 23 "Be glad in that day and leap R296 for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in R297 the same way their fathers used to treat F135 the prophets. 24 "But woe to you R298 who are rich, for you R299 are receiving your comfort in full. 25 "Woe to you who are F136 well-fed now, for you shall be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. 26 "Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to treat F137 the false R300 prophets in the same way.

27 "But I say to you who hear, love R301 your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray R302 for those who mistreat F138 you. 29 "Whoever R303 hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, F139 do not withhold your shirt F140 from him either. 30 "Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back. 31 "Treat R304 F141 others the same way you want them F142 to treat you. 32 "If R305 you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 "If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 "If R306 you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners in order to receive back the same amount. 35 "But love R307 your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting F143 nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons R308 of the R309 Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. 36 "Be F144 merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

37 "Do R310 not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, R311 F145 and you will be pardoned. 38 "Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour F146 into R312 your lap a good R313 measure--pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."

39 And He also spoke a parable to them: "A R314 blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40 "A R315 pupil F147 is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be F148 like his teacher. 41 "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 42 "Or how can you say to your brother, `Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye. 43 "For R316 there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on F149 the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. 44 "For R317 each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. 45 "The R318 good man out of the good treasure F150 of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for R319 his mouth speaks from that F151 which fills his heart.

Builders and Foundations

46 "Why R320 do you call Me, `Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? 47 "Everyone R321 who comes to Me and hears My words and acts F152 on them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug F153 deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent F154 burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49 "But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent F155 burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great."
