3:1 And he entered again into a synagogue; and a man was there that had a withered hand;
2 And they watched him if he would cure him on the sabbath, that they might accuse him.
3 And he says to the man that had the withered hand: Rise and come into the midst.
4 And he says to them: Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they were silent.
5 And looking around on them with anger, being grieved at the hardness of their heart, he says to the man: Stretch forth the hand. And he stretched it forth, and his hand was restored to health.
6 And the Pharisees went out immediately with the Herodians, and took counsel against him, that they might destroy him.
7 And Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude followed from Galilee and from Judea,
8 And from Jerusalem and from Idumea and beyond the Jordan and about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, hearing what things he did, came to him.
9 And he spoke to his disciples that a small ship should wait upon him because of the multitude, that they might not throng him;
10 For he cured many, so that they fell upon him, that they might touch him, as many as had scourges.
11 And the unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him and cried out, saying: Thou art the Son of God.
12 And he charged their minds that they should not make him known.
13 And he went up into the mountain, and called to him whom he would; and they came to him.
14 And he appointed twelve that they might be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
15 and to have authority to cast out the demons.
16 And he appointed the twelve; and Simon he surnamed Peter.
17 And James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James; and these he surnamed Boanerges, which is sons of thunder;
18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
19 and Judas Iscariot, who also delivered him up, and he came into a house;
20 And a multitude again came together, so that they were able not even to eat bread.
21 And his relatives hearing it came forth to take him; for they said: He is beside himself.
22 And the scribes that came down from Jerusalem said: He has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the demons he casts out the demons.
23 And he called them to him and spoke to them in parables: How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom can not stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house can not stand.
26 And if Satan rise up against himself, he is divided; and he can not stand, but has an end.
27 But no one is able, on entering into the house of the strong man, to seize upon his instruments, unless he first bind the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.
28 Verily I say to you that all shall be forgiven the sons of men, the sins and the blasphemies, whatever things they shall blasphemously utter;
29 But whoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, has forgiveness never, but is guilty of an eternal sin.
30 Because they said: He has an unclean spirit.
31 And his mother and his brothers came, and standing without sent to him calling him.
32 And a multitude sat about him; and they said to him: Behold, thy mother, and thy brothers, and thy sisters without seek thee.
33 And he answered and said to them: Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?
34 And looking around on those sitting round about him, he says: Behold my mother and my brothers.
35 Whoever shall have done the will of God, this is my brother and sister and mother.
