|<< Matthew 9 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And going up into the ship and crossing over he came to his city.
2And they brought him a paralytic as he lay in the pallet, and Yeshua saw their faith, and he said to the paralytic, “Take heart my son, your sins are forgiven you.”
3But some of the Scribes said among themselves, “This man blasphemes.”
4But Yeshua knew their thinking, and he said to them, “Why do you think evil things in your heart?”
5“For which is easier, to say, “Your sins are forgiven you”, or to say, “Arise and walk?”
6But that you may know that The Son of Man has authority in the earth to forgive sins, I say to this paralytic, “Stand up, take your pallet and go to your house.”
7And he stood up and he went to his house.
8But when those crowds saw, they were awestruck, and they glorified God who gave authority like this to the children of men.
9And when Yeshua passed by from there, he saw a man sitting at a tax collection booth, whose name was Mattay, and he said to him, “Come after me”, and rising, he went after him.
10And when they reclined in the house, tax gatherers and many sinners came, and they reclined to eat with Yeshua and with his disciples.
11And when the Pharisees saw, they were saying to his disciples, “Why does your master eat with Tax Collectors and sinners?”
12But when Yeshua heard, he said to them, “The healthy do not need a doctor, but those who have become ill.”
13“Go learn what this says, 'I require mercy and not a sacrifice', for I have not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
14Then the disciples of Yohannan approached him, and they were saying, “Why are we and the Pharisees fasting much, and your disciples are not fasting?”
15And Yeshua said to them, “How can the children of the bridal chamber fast as long as the groom is with them? But the days are coming when the groom will be taken from them and then they will fast.”
16“No man places a new patch of cloth on an old coat, lest its fulness tears from that coat, and the rip would be greater.”
17“Neither do they put new wine in old wineskins, lest the wineskins burst and the wine is spilled and the wineskins are destroyed; but they put new wine in new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
18But as he was speaking these things with them, a certain ruler approached, bowing to him, and he said, “My daughter is dying even now, but come, lay your hand on her, and she will live.”
19But Yeshua arose and his disciples and they went after him.
20And behold a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years, came from behind him and she touched the hem of his garment.
21For she was saying in herself, “If only I may touch his clothes, I shall be healed.”
22But Yeshua turned, and saw her, and he said to her, “Take heart my daughter, your faith has saved you.” And the woman was healed from that moment.
23And Yeshua came to the house of the ruler, and he saw chanters and a crowd that was upset.
24And he said to them. “Get out, for the girl is not dead, but she is asleep”, and they were laughing at him.
25And when he had sent the crowd out, he entered, he took her by her hand, and the girl arose.
26And this report went out into all that land.
27And when Yeshua passed from there, two blind men followed him who cried out and they were saying, “Have pity on us, son of David.”
28But when he had come to the house, those blind men came near to him; Yeshua said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They were saying to him, “Yes, Our Lord.”
29Then he touched their eyes, and he said, “Just as you have believed, let it be done to you.”
30And at once their eyes were opened and Yeshua admonished them and he said, “See that no man will know it.”
31But they went forth and they announced it in all that area.
32And when Yeshua went out, they brought to him a deaf mute who had a demon upon him.
33And when the demon went forth, that deaf-mute spoke, and the crowds were astonished, and they were saying, “Never has it been seen thus in Israel.”
34But the Pharisees were saying, “By the prince of demons he casts out demons.”
35And Yeshua was traveling about in all the cities and in the villages and he was teaching in their assemblies and preaching The Gospel of the Kingdom and was healing all diseases and all ailments.
36But when Yeshua saw the crowds, he felt pity for them, for they were weary and wandering, like sheep without a shepherd.
37And he said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, and the labourers are few.”
38“Request therefore of The Lord of the harvest to send out laborers to his harvest.”
