Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:1 - Now after some days, when he returned to Capernaum, the news spread that he was at home.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:2 - So many gathered that there was no longer any room, not even by the door, and he preached the word to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:3 - Some people came bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:4 - When they were not able to bring him in because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Jesus. Then, after tearing it out, they lowered the stretcher the paralytic was lying on.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:5 - When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:6 - Now some of the experts in the law were sitting there, turning these things over in their minds:

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:7 - "Why does this man speak this way? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:8 - Now immediately, when Jesus realized in his spirit that they were contemplating such thoughts, he said to them, "Why are you thinking such things in your hearts?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:9 - Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Stand up, take your stretcher, and walk'?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:10 - But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins," - he said to the paralytic -

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:11 - "I tell you, stand up, take your stretcher, and go home."

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:12 - And immediately the man stood up, took his stretcher, and went out in front of them all. They were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:13 - Jesus went out again by the sea. The whole crowd came to him, and he taught them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:14 - As he went along, he saw Levi, the son of Alphaeus, sitting at the tax booth. "Follow me," he said to him. And he got up and followed him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:15 - As Jesus was having a meal in Levi's home, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:16 - When the experts in the law and the Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:17 - When Jesus heard this he said to them, "Those who are healthy don't need a physician, but those who are sick do. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:18 - Now John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. So they came to Jesus and said, "Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples don't fast?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:19 - Jesus said to them, "The wedding guests cannot fast while the bridegroom is with them, can they? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they do not fast.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:20 - But the days are coming when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and at that time they will fast.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:21 - No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and the tear becomes worse.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:22 - And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins will be destroyed. Instead new wine is poured into new wineskins."

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:23 - Jesus was going through the grain fields on a Sabbath, and his disciples began to pick some heads of wheat as they made their way.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:24 - So the Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is against the law on the Sabbath?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 2:25 - He said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry -
