And Yahshua, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led in the Spirit in the wilderness 2 during forty days, being tempted of the devil. And he did eat nothing in those days: and when they were completed, he hungered. 3 And the devil said to him, If you are the Son of Yahweh, command this stone that it become bread. 4 And Yahshua answered to him, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone. 5 And he led him up, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to him, To you will I give all this authority, and the glory of them: for it has been delivered to me; and to whomever I will I give it. 7 If you therefore will worship before me, it shall all be yours. 8 And Yahshua answered and said to him, It is written, You shall worship Yahweh your Elohim, and him only shall you serve. 9 And he led him to Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, If you are the Son of Yahweh, cast yourself down from here: 10 for it is written,
He shall give his angels charge concerning you, to guard you:
On their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you should dash your foot against a stone.
12 And Yahshua answering said to him, it is said,
You shall not make trial of Yahweh your Elohim.
13 And when the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from him for a season.
14 And Yahshua returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and a fame went out concerning him through all the region all around. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and he entered, as his custom was, into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up to read. 17 And there was delivered to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And he opened the book, and found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of Yahweh is upon me,
Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor:
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives,
And recovering of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of Yahweh.
20 And he closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down: and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say to them, Today has this Scripture been fulfilled in your ears. 22 And all bore him witness, and wondered at the words of grace which proceeded out of his mouth: and they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? 23 And he said to them, Doubtless you will say to me this parable, Physician, heal yourself: whatever we have heard done at Capernaum, do also here in your own country. 24 And he said, truly I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his own country. 25 But of a truth I say to you, There were many widows in Israel in the days of EliYah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when there came a great famine over all the land; 26 and to none of them was EliYah sent, but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman that was a widow. 27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none Of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian. 28 And they were all filled with anger in the synagogue, as they heard these things; 29 and they rose up, and cast him forth out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw him down headlong. 30 But he passing through the middle of them went his way.
31 And he came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the sabbath day: 32 and they were astonished at his teaching; for his word was with authority. 33 And in the synagogue there was a man, that had a spirit of an unclean demon; and he cried out with a loud voice, 34 Ah! what have we to do with you, Yahshua you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are, the Holy One of Elohim. 35 And Yahshua rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace, and come out of him. And when the demon had thrown him down in the middle, he came out of him, having done him no hurt. 36 And amazement came upon all, and they spoke together, one with another, saying, What is this word? for with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out. 37 And there went forth a rumor concerning him into every place of the region all around.
38 And he rose up from the synagogue, and entered into the house of Simon. And Simon’s wife’s mother was held with a great fever; and they supplicated him for her. 39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she rose up and ministered to them.
40 And when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them. 41 And demons also came out from many, crying out, and saying, You are the Son of Yahweh. And rebuking them, he suffered them not to speak, because they knew that he was the Messiah.
42 And when it was day, he came out and went into a desert place: and the multitudes sought after him, and came to him, and would have stayed him, that he should not go from them. 43 But he said to them, I must preach the good tidings of the kingdom of Yahweh to the other cities also: because for this was I sent.
44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.
Now it came to pass, while the multitude pressed upon him and heard the word of Yahweh, that he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret; 2 and he saw two boats standing by the lake: but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the multitudes out of the boat. 4 And when he had left speaking, he said to Simon, Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answered and said, Master, we toiled all night, and took nothing: but at your word I will let down the nets. 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes; and their nets were breaking; 7 and they beckoned to their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 But Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Yahshua’s knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Master. 9 For he was amazed, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken; 10 and so were also Jacob and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Yahshua said to Simon, Fear not; from henceforth you shall catch men. 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left all, and followed him.
12 And it came to pass, while he was in one of the cities, behold, a man full of leprosy: and when he saw Yahshua, he fell on his face, and supplicated him, saying, Rabbi, if you will, you can make me clean. 13 And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be you made clean. And straightway the leprosy departed from him. 14 And he charged him to tell no man: but go your way, and show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. 15 But so much the more went abroad the report concerning him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed of their infirmities. 16 But he withdrew himself in the deserts, and prayed.
17 And it came to pass on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who had come out of every village of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem: and the power of Yahweh was with him to heal. 18 And behold, men bring on a bed a man that was palsied: and they sought to bring him in, and to lay him before him. 19 And not finding by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his couch into the midst before Yahshua. 20 And seeing their faith, he said, Man, your sins are forgiven you. 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but Yahweh alone? 22 But Yahshua perceiving their reasonings, answered and said to them. Why do you reason in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, Your sins are forgiven you; or to say, Arise and walk? 24 But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins (he said to him that was palsied), I say to you, Arise, and take up your couch, and go to your house, 25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that on which he lay, and departed to his house, glorifying Yahweh. 26 And amazement took hold on all, and they glorified Elohim; and they were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things today.
27 And after these things he went forth, and beheld a publican, named Levi, sitting at the place of toll, and said to him, Follow me. 28 And he forsook all, and rose up and followed him.
29 And Levi made him a great feast in his house: and there was a great multitude of publicans and of others that were sitting at meat with them. 30 And the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do you eat and drink with the publicans and sinners? 31 And Yahshua answering said to them, They that are in health have no need of a physician; but they that are sick. 32 I am not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.
33 And they said to him, The disciples of John fast often, and make supplications: likewise also the disciples of the Pharisees; but yours eat and drink. 34 And Yahshua said to them, Can you make the sons of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? 35 But the days will come; and when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, then will they fast in those days. 36 And he spoke also a parable to them: No man rends a piece from a new garment and puts it upon an old garment; else he will rend the new, and also the piece from the new will not agree with the old. 37 And no man puts new wine into old wine-skins; else the new wine will burst the skins, and itself will be spilled, and the skins will perish. 38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. 39 And no man having drunk old wine desires new; for he says, The old is better.
Now it came to pass on a sabbath, that he was going through the grainfields; and his disciples plucked the ears, and ate rubbing them in their hands. 2 But certain of the Pharisees said, Why do you that which it is not lawful to do on the sabbath day? 3 And Yahshua answering them said, Have you not read even this, what David did, when he was hungry, he, and they that were with him; 4 how he entered into the house of Yahweh, and took and ate the showbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat save for the priests alone? 5 And he said to them, The Son of man is Master of the sabbath.
6 And it came to pass on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man there, and his right hand was withered. 7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath; that they might find how to accuse him. 8 But he knew their thoughts; and he said to the man that had his hand withered, Rise up, and stand forth in the middle. And he arose and stood forth. 9 And Yahshua said to them, I ask you, Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good, or to do harm? To save a life, or to destroy it? 10 And he looked all around on them all, and said to him, Stretch forth your hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored. 11 But they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Yahshua.
12 And it came to pass in these days, that he went out into the mountain to pray; and he continued all night in prayer to Yahweh. 13 And when it was day, he called his disciples; and he chose from them twelve, whom also he named apostles: 14 Simon, whom he also named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and Jacob and John, and Philip and Bartholomew, 15 and Matthew and Thomas, and Jacob the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 and Judah the son of Jacob, and Judah Iscariot, who became a traitor; 17 and he came down with them, and stood on a level place, and a great multitude of his disciples, and a great number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 and they that were troubled with unclean spirits were healed. 19 And all the multitude sought to touch him; for power came forth from him, and healed them all.
20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed are you poor: for yours is the kingdom of Yahweh. 21 Blessed are you that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are you that weep now: for you shall laugh. 22 Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy: for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for in the same manner did their fathers to the prophets. 24 But woe to you that are rich! For you have received your consolation. 25 Woe to you, you that are full now! For you shall hunger. Woe unto you, you that laugh now! For you shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! For in the same manner did their fathers to the false prophets.
27 But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, 28 bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you. 29 To him that strikes you on the one cheek offer also the other; and from him that takes away your cloak withhold not your coat also. 30 Give to every one that asks you; and of him that takes away your goods ask them not again. 31 And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise. 32 And if you love them that love you, what thanks have you? For even sinners love those that love them. 33 And if you do good to them that do good to you, what thanks have you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thanks have you? even sinners lend to sinners, to receive again as much. 35 But love your enemies, and do them good, and lend,. never despairing; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be sons of the Most High: for he is kind toward the unthankful and evil. 36 Be you merciful, even as your Father is merciful. 37 And judge not, and you shall not be judged: and condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: release, and you shall be released: 38 give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom. For with what measure you measure it shall be measured to you again.
39 And he spoke also a parable to them, Can the blind guide the blind? Shall they not both fall into a pit? 40 The disciple is not above his teacher: but every one when he is perfected shall be as his teacher. 41 And why behold you the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? 42 Or how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me cast out the speck that is in your eye, when you yourself behold not the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of your own eye, and then shall you see clearly to cast out the speck that is in your brother’s eye. 43 For there is no good tree that brings forth corrupt fruit; nor again a corrupt tree that brings forth good fruit. 44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
46 And why do you call me, Master, Master, and do not the things which I say? 47 Every one that comes to me, and hears my words, and does them, I will show you to whom he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug and went deep, and laid a foundation upon the rock: and when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house, and could not shake it: for it had been founded upon the rock: 49 But he that hears, and does not, is like a man that built a house upon the earth without a foundation; against which the stream broke, and straightway it fell in; and the ruin of that house was great.
