8:40 When Yeshua returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him. 41 And look, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. He fell down at Yeshua’s feet, and pleaded with him to come into his house, 42 for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as he went, the crowds pressed against him. 43 A woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years (who had spent all her living on physicians) and could not be healed by any, 44 came behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately the flow of her blood stopped. 45 Yeshua said, “Who touched me?”
When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the crowds press and jostle you.”
46 But Yeshua said, “Someone did touch me, for I perceived that power has gone out of me.” 47 When the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared to him in the presence of all the people the reason why she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
49 While he still spoke, one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house came, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher.”
50 But Yeshua hearing it, answered him, “Do not be afraid. Only believe, and she will be healed.”
51 When he came to the house, he did not allow anyone to enter in with him, except Peter, John, Jacob, the father of the child, and her mother. 52 All were weeping and mourning her, but he said, “Do not weep. She is not dead, but sleeping.”
53 They were ridiculing him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he, taking her by the hand, called, saying, “Child, arise.” 55 Her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately. He commanded that something be given to her to eat. 56 Her parents were amazed, but he commanded them to tell no one what had been done.
9:1 He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2 He sent them forth to proclaim the Kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3 And he said to them, “Take nothing for your journey—neither staff, nor pack, nor bread, nor money; neither have two tunics. 4 Into whatever house you enter, stay there, and depart from there. 5 As many as do not receive you, when you depart from that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a testimony against them.”
6 They departed, and went throughout the villages, proclaiming the Good News, and healing everywhere. 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done; and he was very perplexed, because it was said by some that John had risen from the dead, 8 and by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the old prophets had risen again. 9 Herod said, “John I beheaded, but who is this, about whom I hear such things?” He sought to see him. 10 The emissaries, when they had returned, told him what things they had done.
He took them, and withdrew apart to a city called Bethsaida. 11 But the crowds, perceiving it, followed him. He welcomed them, and spoke to them of the Kingdom of God, and he cured those who needed healing. 12 The day began to wear away; and the twelve came, and said to him, “Send the crowd away, that they may go into the surrounding villages and farms, and lodge, and get food, for we are here in a deserted place.”
13 But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.”
They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we should go and buy food for all these people.” 14 For they were about five thousand men.
He said to his talmidim, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” 15 They did so, and made them all sit down. 16 He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the sky, he blessed them, and broke them, and gave them to the talmidim to set before the crowd. 17 They ate, and were all filled. They gathered up twelve baskets of broken pieces that were left over.
18 It happened, as he was praying alone, that the talmidim were with him, and he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?”
19 They answered, “‘John the Immerser,’ but others say, ‘Elijah,’ and others, that one of the old prophets is risen again.”
20 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter answered, “The Messiah of God.”
21 But he warned them, and commanded them to tell this to no one, 22 saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, chief cohanim, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.”
23 He said to all, “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake, the same will save it. 25 For what does it profit a person if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits his own self? 26 For whoever will be ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed, when he comes in his glory, and the glory of the Father, and of the holy angels. 27 But I tell you the truth: There are some of those who stand here, who will in no way taste of death, until they see the Kingdom of God.”
28 It happened about eight days after these sayings, that he took with him Peter, John, and Jacob, and went up onto the mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face was altered, and his clothing became white and dazzling. 30 And look, two men were talking with him, who were Moses and Elijah, 31 who appeared in glory, and spoke of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
32 Now Peter and those who were with him were heavy with sleep, but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory, and the two men who stood with him. 33 It happened, as they were parting from him, that Peter said to Yeshua, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tents: one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah,” not knowing what he said.
34 While he said these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered into the cloud. 35 A voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One. Listen to him.” 36 When the voice came, Yeshua was found alone. They were silent, and told no one in those days any of the things which they had seen.
37 It happened on the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, that a large crowd met him. 38 And look, a man from the crowd called out, saying, “Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child. 39 And look, a spirit seizes him, and all at once he cries out, and it convulses him so that he foams, and it hardly departs from him, bruising him severely. 40 I begged your talmidim to cast it out, and they could not.”
41 Yeshua answered, “Faithless and perverse generation, how long must I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here.”
42 While he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him violently. But Yeshua rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. 43 They were all astonished at the majesty of God.
But while all were marveling at all the things which Yeshua did, he said to his talmidim, 44 “Let these words sink into your ears, for the Son of Man will be delivered up into the hands of men.” 45 But they did not understand this saying. It was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying. 46 There arose an argument among them about which of them was the greatest. 47 Yeshua, knowing the reasoning of their hearts, took a little child, and set him by his side, 48 and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in my name receives me. Whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For whoever is least among you all, this one is great.”
49 John answered, “Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he does not follow with us.”
50 Yeshua said to him, “Do not forbid him, for he who is not against you is for you.”
51 It came to pass, when the days were near that he should be taken up, he intently set his face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and sent messengers before his face. They went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, so as to prepare for him. 53 But they did not receive him, because he was traveling with his face set towards Jerusalem. 54 When his talmidim, Jacob and John, saw this, they said, “Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from the sky, and consume them?”
55 And he turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not realize what kind of Spirit you belong to. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy people’s lives, but to save them.” And they went to another village. 57 As they went on the way, a certain man said to him, “I want to follow you wherever you go.”
58 And Yeshua said to him, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”
59 He said to another, “Follow me.”
But he said, “Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.”
60 But Yeshua said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead, but you go and announce the Kingdom of God.”
61 Another also said, “I want to follow you, Lord, but first allow me to bid farewell to those who are at my house.”
62 But Yeshua said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.”
10:1 Now after these things, the Lord also appointed seventy-two others, and sent them two by two ahead of him into every city and place, where he was about to come. 2 Then he said to them, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send out laborers into his harvest. 3 Go your way. Look, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry no money bag, nor pack, nor sandals; and greet no one on the way. 5 Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’ 6 If a peaceful person is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. 7 Remain in that same house, eating and drinking the things they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Into whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat the things that are set before you. 9 Heal the sick who are in it, and tell them, ‘The Kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But into whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust from your city that clings to our feet, we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the Kingdom of God is near.’ 12 I tell you, it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom than for that city.
13 “Woe to you, Chorazin. Woe to you, Bethsaida. For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will be brought down to Sheol.
16 Whoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me. Whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
17 The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name.”
18 He said to them, “I saw Satan having fallen like lightning from heaven. 19 Look, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will in any way hurt you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
21 In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit, and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for so it was well-pleasing in your sight.”
22 “All things have been delivered to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is, except the Father, and who the Father is, except the Son, and he to whomever the Son desires to reveal him.”
23 Turning to the talmidim, he said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things that you see, 24 for I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see the things which you see, and did not see them, and to hear the things which you hear, and did not hear them.”
25 And look, a certain Law scholar stood up and tested him, saying, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit everlasting life?”
26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?”
27 He answered, “You are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
28 He said to him, “You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live.”
29 But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Yeshua, “Who is my neighbor?”
30 Yeshua answered, “A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 By chance a certain cohen was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, 34 came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, ‘Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.’ 36 Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?”
37 He said, “He who showed mercy on him.”
Then Yeshua said to him, “Go and do likewise.”
38 It happened as they went on their way, he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman named Martha received him. 39 She had a sister called Miriam, who also sat at the Lord’s feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she came up to him, and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister left me to serve alone? Ask her therefore to help me.”
41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is needed. Miriam has chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
11:1 It happened, that when he finished praying in a certain place, one of his talmidim said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John also taught his talmidim.”
2 So he said to them, “When you pray, say,
‘Our Father in heaven, holy be your name.
May your kingdom come. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven
3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
4 Forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.'”
5 He said to them, “Which of you, if you go to a friend at midnight, and tell him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 6 for a friend of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him,’ 7 and he from within will answer and say, ‘Do not bother me. The door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I cannot get up and give it to you’? 8 I tell you, although he will not rise and give it to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence, he will get up and give him as many as he needs.
9 “I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, he won’t give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”
