Mark 2:13-17 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The Call of Levi

13 Jesus went out again beside the sea. The whole crowd was coming to him, and he was teaching them. 14 Then, passing by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the toll booth, and he said to him, “Follow me,” and he got up and followed him.

15 While he was reclining at the table in Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating[a] with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who were following him. 16 When the scribes who were Pharisees[b] saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat[c] with tax collectors and sinners?”

17 When Jesus heard this, he told them, “It is not those who are well who need a doctor, but those who are sick. I didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
