1 The beginning of the
gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
2 As it is written in the prophets,
Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way
3 The voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
4 John did
baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the
remission of sins.
5 And there went out unto him all
the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in
the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
6 And John was clothed with camelís
hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts
and wild honey;
7 And preached, saying, There cometh
one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy
to stoop down and unloose.
8 I indeed have baptized you with
water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
9 And it came to pass
in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized
of John in Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of
the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove
descending upon him:
11 And there came a voice from
heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12 And immediately the Spirit
driveth him into the wilderness.
13 And he was there in the
wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and
the angels ministered unto him.
14 Now after that John
was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the
kingdom of God,
15 And saying, The
time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and
believe the gospel.
16 Now as he walked by the sea of
Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea:
for they were fishers.
17 And Jesus said unto them, Come
ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18 And straightway they forsook
their nets, and followed him.
19 And when he had gone a little
further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his
brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
20 And straightway he called them:
and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants,
and went after him.
21 And they went into Capernaum; and
straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
22 And they were astonished at his
doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the
23 And there was in
their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24 Saying, Let us alone; what
have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy
us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold
thy peace, and come out of him.
26 And when the unclean spirit had
torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27 And they were all amazed,
insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is
this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he
even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
28 And immediately his fame spread
abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
29 And forthwith, when
they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon
and Andrew, with James and John.
30 But Simonís wifeís mother lay
sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.
31 And he came and took her by the
hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she
ministered unto them.
32 And at even, when the sun did
set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were
possessed with devils.
33 And all the city was gathered
together at the door.
34 And he healed many that were sick
of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils
to speak, because they knew him.
35 And in the morning, rising up a
great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place,
and there prayed.
36 And Simon and they that were with
him followed after him.
37 And when they had found him, they
said unto him, All men seek for thee.
38 And he said unto them, Let
us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore
came I forth.
39 And he preached in their
synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
40 And there came a
leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto
him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
41 And Jesus, moved with compassion,
put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I
will; be thou clean.
42 And as soon as he had spoken,
immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
43 And he straitly charged him, and
forthwith sent him away;
44 And saith unto him, See
thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest,
and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a
testimony unto them.
45 But he went out, and began to
publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that
Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert
places: and they came to him from every quarter.
