Luke 5

5:1 And it came to passe, that as the people preassed vpon him to heare the word of God, hee stood by the lake of Genesareth, 5:2 And sawe two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 5:3 And he entred into one of the ships, which was Simons, and prayed him, that he would thrust out a little from the land: and he sate downe, and taught the people out of the ship. 5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said vnto Simon, Lanch out into the deepe, and let downe your nets for a draught. 5:5 And Simon answering, said vnto him, Master, wee haue toiled all the night, and haue taken nothing: neuerthelesse at thy word I will let downe the net. 5:6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net brake: 5:7 And they beckened vnto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and helpe them. And they came, & filled both the ships, so that they began to sinke. 5:8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell downe at Iesus knees, saying, Depart from me, for I am a sinfull man, O Lord. 5:9 For he was astonished, and al that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken. 5:10 And so was also Iames, and Iohn the sonnes of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Iesus said vnto Simon, Feare not, from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 5:11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsooke all, and followed him. 5:12 And it came to passe, when he was in a certaine citie, behold a man full of leprosie: who seeing Iesus, fell on his face, & besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me cleane. 5:13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I wil: be thou cleane. And immediatly the leprosie departed from him. 5:14 And hee charged him to tell no man: but, Goe, and shewe thy selfe to the Priest, and offer for thy clensing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimonie vnto them. 5:15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him, and great multitudes came together to heare, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. 5:16 And he withdrew himselfe into the wildernesse, and prayed. 5:17 And it came to passe on a certaine day, as hee was teaching, that there were Pharisees and Doctours of the Law sitting by, which were come out of euery towne of Galilee, and Iudea, and Hierusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heale them. 5:18 And behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsie: and they sought meanes to bring him in, and to lay him before him. 5:19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in, because of the multitude, they went vpon the house top, & let him downe through the tiling with his couch, into the midst before Iesus. 5:20 And when he saw their faith, hee said vnto him, Man, thy sinnes are forgiuen thee. 5:21 And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies Who can forgiue sinnes, but God alone 5:22 But when Iesus perceiued their thoughts, he answering, saide vnto them, What reason ye in your hearts 5:23 Whether is easier to say, Thy sinnes be forgiuen thee: or to say, Rise vp and walke 5:24 But that ye may know that the Sonne of man hath power vpon earth to forgiue sinnes (he said vnto the sicke of the palsie,) I say vnto thee, Arise, and take vp thy couch, and go into thine house. 5:25 And immediatly he rose vp before them, and tooke vp that whereon hee lay, and departed to his owne house, glorifying God. 5:26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with feare, saying, Wee haue seene strange things to day. 5:27 And after these things hee went foorth, and sawe a Publicane, named Leui, sitting at the receit of custome: and hee said vnto him, Follow me. 5:28 And he left all, rose vp, and followed him. 5:29 And Leui made him a great feast in his owne house: and there was a great company of Publicanes, and of others that sate downe with them. 5:30 But their Scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why doe ye eate and drinke with Publicanes and sinners 5:31 And Iesus answering, said vnto them, They that are whole need not a physician: but they that are sicke. 5:32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 5:33 And they said vnto him, Why doe the disciples of Iohn fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees: but thine eat and drinke 5:34 And he said vnto them, Can yee make the children of the Bride-chamber fast, while the Bridegrome is with them 5:35 But the dayes will come, when the Bridegrome shall bee taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those dayes. 5:36 And he spake also a parable vnto them, No man putteth a piece of a newe garment vpon an olde: if otherwise, then both the newe maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new, agreeth not with the olde. 5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. 5:38 But newe wine must be put into newe bottles, and both are preserued. 5:39 No man also hauing drunke olde wine, straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.
