Matthew 12:1-21 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
12 At that time, Jesus went on the Sabbath day through the corn; and His disciples were hungry and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.
2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto Him, “Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day.”
3 But He said unto them, “Have ye not read what David did when he hungered and they that were with him:
4 how he entered into the house of God and ate the showbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for those who were with him, but only for the priests?
5 Or have ye not read in the law how on the Sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are blameless?
6 But I say unto you, that in this place is One greater than the temple.
7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, ‘I will have mercy and not sacrifice,’ ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
8 For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.”
9 And when He had departed thence, He went into their synagogue.
10 And behold, there was a man who had his hand withered. And they asked Him, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath days?” — that they might accuse Him.
11 And He said unto them, “What man shall there be among you that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will not lay hold on it and lift it out?
12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days.”
13 Then He said to the man, “Stretch forth thine hand.” And he stretched it forth, and it was restored whole like the other.
14 Then the Pharisees went out and held a council against Him, how they might destroy Him.
15 But when Jesus knew of it, He withdrew Himself from thence. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.
16 And He charged them that they should not make Him known,
17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying,
18 “Behold My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased: I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall show judgment to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive nor cry, neither shall any man hear His voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench till He send forth judgment unto victory;
21 and in His name shall the Gentiles trust.”
Mark 3 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
3 And He entered again into the synagogue, and there was a man there who had a withered hand.
2 And they watched Him to see whether He would heal him on the Sabbath day, that they might accuse Him.
3 And He said unto the man who had the withered hand, “Stand forth.”
4 And He said unto them, “Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life, or to kill?” But they held their peace.
5 And when He had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said unto the man, “Stretch forth thine hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored whole as the other.
6 And the Pharisees went forth and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
7 But Jesus withdrew Himself with His disciples to the sea. And a great multitude from Galilee followed Him, and from Judea,
8 and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyond the Jordan. And those from around Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came unto Him.
9 And He spoke to His disciples that a small boat should await Him because of the multitude, lest they should throng Him.
10 For He had healed many, insomuch that they pressed upon Him to touch Him, as many as had plagues.
11 And unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried, saying, “Thou art the Son of God!”
12 And He strictly charged them that they should not make Him known.
13 And He went up onto a mountain, and called unto Him whom He would have, and they came unto Him.
14 And He ordained twelve, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them forth to preach,
15 and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out devils:
16 Simon (He surnamed Peter);
17 and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James (and He surnamed them Boanerges, which means The Sons of Thunder);
18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thadaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
19 and Judas Iscariot who also betrayed Him. And they went into a house;
20 and the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
21 And when His friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on Him; for they said, “He is beside himself.”
22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of devils he casteth out devils.”
23 And He called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 And if Satan rise up against himself and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house and despoil his goods, unless he will first bind the strong man; and then he will despoil his house.
28 “Verily I say unto you, all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men and blasphemies, however they shall blaspheme;
29 but he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation”;
30 because they said, “He hath an unclean spirit.”
31 There came then His brethren and His mother, and standing outside they sent unto Him, calling Him.
32 And the multitude sat about Him, and they said unto Him, “Behold, thy mother and thy brethren outside seek for thee.”
33 And He answered them, saying, “Who is My mother, or My brethren?”
34 And He looked round about on those who sat about Him and said, “Behold, My mother and My brethren.
35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother.”
Luke 6 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
6 And it came to pass on the second Sabbath after the first, that He went through the cornfields. And His disciples plucked the ears of corn and, rubbing them in their hands, ate.
2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, “Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath days?”
3 And Jesus answering them said, “Have ye not read so much as this, what David did when he himself hungered and they that were with him:
4 how he went into the house of God, and took and ate the showbread and gave also to them that were with him, which it is not lawful to eat except for the priests alone?”
5 And He said unto them, “The Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath.”
6 And it came to pass also on another Sabbath, that He entered into the synagogue and taught. And there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched Him to see whether He would heal on the Sabbath day, that they might find an accusation against Him.
8 But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, “Rise up and stand forth in the midst.” And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto them, “I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? To save life, or to destroy it?”
10 And looking round about upon them all, He said unto the man, “Stretch forth thy hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madness, and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
12 And it came to pass in those days that He went out onto a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was day, He called unto Him His disciples, and from them He chose twelve, whom also He named apostles:
14 Simon (whom He also named Peter), and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot,
16 and Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot who also was the traitor.
17 And He came down with them and stood on the plain with the company of His disciples and a great multitude of people out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases,
18 and those who were vexed with unclean spirits; and they were healed.
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for there went virtue out of Him and healed them all.
20 And He lifted up His eyes on His disciples and said, “Blessed be ye poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are ye that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now, for ye shall laugh.
22 Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man’s sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in Heaven; for in like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
24 “But woe unto you that are rich, for ye have received your consolation.
25 Woe unto you that are full, for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now, for ye shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
27 “But I say unto you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you.
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not back.
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
32 For if ye love them that love you, what thanks have ye? For sinners also love those that love them.
33 And if ye do good to them that do good to you, what thanks have ye? For sinners also do even the same.
34 And if ye lend to them from whom ye hope to receive, what thanks have ye? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 But love ye your enemies, and do good and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest; for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 “Judge not, and ye shall not be judged. Condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned. Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete, therewith it shall be measured to you again.”
39 And He spoke a parable unto them: “Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?
40 The disciple is not above his master, but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
42 Or how canst thou say to thy brother, ‘Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye,’ when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite! Cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
43 “For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For from thorns men do not gather figs, nor from a bramble bush gather they grapes.
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abundance of his heart his mouth speaketh.
46 “And why call ye Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like:
48 He is like a man who built a house and dug deep and laid the foundation on a rock; and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house and could not shake it, for it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that built a house without a foundation upon the earth, against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
