5:5 Simon answered him, "Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the net."
5:6 When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking.
5:8 But Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Jesus` knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, Lord."
5:9 For he was amazed, and all who were with him, at the catch of fish which they had caught;
5:12 It happened, while he was in one of the cities, behold, there was a man full of leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell on his face, and begged him, saying, "Lord, if you want to, you can make me clean."
5:13 He stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, "I want to. Be made clean." Immediately the leprosy departed from him.
5:14 He charged him to tell no one, "But go your way, and show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing, according to what Moses commanded, for a testimony to them."
5:16 But he withdrew himself into the desert, and prayed.
5:17 It happened on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every village of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. The power of the Lord was with him to heal them.
5:18 Behold, men brought a paralyzed man on a cot, and they sought to bring him in to lay before him.
5:19 Not finding a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his cot into the midst before Jesus.
5:20 Seeing their faith, he said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you."
5:21 The scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"
5:22 But Jesus, perceiving their thoughts, answered them, "Why are you reasoning so in your hearts?
5:23 Which is easier to say, `Your sins are forgiven you;` or to say, `Arise and walk?`
5:24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins" (he said to the paralyzed man), "I tell you, arise, and take up your cot, and go to your house."
5:25 Immediately he rose up before them, and took up that which he was laying on, and departed to his house, glorifying God.
5:26 Amazement took hold on all, and they glorified God. They were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today."
5:28 He left everything, and rose up and followed him.
5:29 Levi made him a great feast for him in his house. There was a great crowd of tax collectors and others who were reclining with them.
5:31 Jesus answered them, "Those who are healthy have no need for a physician, but those who are sick do.
5:32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
5:34 He said to them, "Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
5:35 But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them. Then will they fast in those days."
5:39 No man having drunk old wine immediately desires new, for he says, `The old is better.`
