Matthew 12
Tyndale New Testament
1In that time went Iesus on the sabbath day thorow the corn, and his disciples were anhungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat. 2When the pharises had seen that, they said unto him: Behold thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day. 3He said unto them: Have ye not read what David did, when he was anhungered, and they also which were with him? 4How he entered into the house of God, and ate the hallowed loaves, which were not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests. 5Or have ye not read in the law, how that the priests in the temple break the sabbath day, and yet are blameless? 6But I say unto you, that here is one greater than the temple. 7Wherefore if ye had wist, what this saying meaneth: I require mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would never have condemned innocents.

8For the son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

9And he departed thence, and went into their synagogue, 10and behold, there was a man, which had his hand dried up. And they asked him saying: is it lawful to heal upon the sabbath day? because they might accuse him. 11And he said unto them: which is he among you, if he had a sheep fallen into a pit on the sabbath day, that would not take him and lift him out? 12And how much is a man better then a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do a good deed on the sabbath day. 13Then said he to the man: stretch forth thy hand, and he stretched forth, and it was again made even as whole as the other. 14Then the pharises went forth, and took council against him, how they might destroy him.

15When Iesus knew that, he departed thence, and much people followed him, and he healed them all. 16and charged them, that they should not make him known, 17to fulfil that which was spoken by Esay the prophet, which sayeth:

18Behold my son, whom I have chosen, my darling, in whom my soul hath had delight. I will put my spirit on him, and he shall shew judgement to the gentiles.

19He shall not strive, he shall not cry, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets,

20a bruised reed, shall he not break, and flax that beginneth to burn he shall not quench, till he send forth judgement unto victory,

21and in his name shall the gentiles trust.

22Then was brought to him, one possessed with a devil which was both blind and dumb, and he healed him, insomuch that he which was blind and dumb, both spake and saw. 23And all the people were amazed, and said: Is not this the son of David? 24When the pharises heard that, they said: he driveth the devils no other wise out, but by the help of belzebub the chief of the devils.

25But Iesus knew their thoughts, and said to them. Every kingdom divided with in itself shall be desolate. Neither shall any city or household divided against itself, continue. 26So if satan cast out satan, then is he divided against him self. How shall then his kingdom endure? 27Also if I by the help of belzebub cast out devils: by whose help do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges: 28But if I cast out the devils by the spirit of God: then is the kingdom of God come on you? 29Other how can a man enter into a mighty man's house, and violently take away his goods, except he first bind the strong man, and then spoil his house?

30He that is not with me, is against me: And he that gathereth not with me, scattereth abroad.

31Wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men, but the blasphemy against the holy ghost, shall not be forgiven unto men. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the holy ghost, it shall not be forgiven him: no, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

33Other make the tree good, and his fruit good also, or else make the tree evil, and his fruit evil also. For the tree is known by his fruit. 34O generation of vipers, how can ye say well, when ye yourselves are evil? For of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh. 35A good man out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth forth good things. And an evil man out of his evil treasure, bringeth forth evil things. 36But I say unto you, that of every idle word, that men shall have spoken, they shall give accounts at the day of judgement. 37For by thy words thou shalt be justified: and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

38Then answered certain of the scribes and of the pharises saying: Master, we would fain see a sign of thee. 39He answered them saying: the evil and advoutrous generation seeketh a sign, but there shall no sign be given to them, but the sign of the prophet Ionas. 40For as Ionas was three days, and three nights, in the whale's belly: so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41The men of Nineveh shall rise at the day of judgement, with this nation, and condemn them: for they repented at the preaching of Ionas. And behold a greater than Ionas is here. 42The queen of the south shall rise at the day of judgement with this generation, and shall condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the world, to hear the wisdom of Solomon. And behold here is a greater than Solomon.

43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh throughout dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he sayeth: I will return again into my house, from whence I came out. And when he is come, he findeth the house empty and swept, and garnished. 45Then he goeth his way, and taketh seven spirits worse then him self, and so enter they in and dwell there. And the end of that man is worse than the beginning. Even so shall it be to this froward nation.

46While he yet talked to the people: behold, his mother and his brethren stood without the doors, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him: behold thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48He answered and said to him that told him: Who is my mother? or who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand over his disciples, and said: behold my mother and my brethren. 50For whosoever fulfilleth my fathers will which is in heaven, he is my brother, my sister, and my mother.
