12:2 But the Pharisees, when they saw it, said to him, "Behold, your disciples do what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath."
12:3 But he said to them, "Haven`t you read what David did, when he was hungry, and those who were with him;
12:6 But I tell you that one greater than the temple is here.
12:7 But if you had known what this means, `I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,` you would not have condemned the guiltless.
12:8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
12:9 He departed there, and went into their synagogue.
12:12 How much, then, is a man of more value than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath day."
12:14 But the Pharisees went out, and took counsel against him, how they might destroy him.
12:15 Jesus, perceiving that, withdrew from there. Great multitudes followed him; and he healed them all,
12:16 and charged them that they should not make him known:
12:17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,
12:18 Behold, my servant whom I have chosen; My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit on him, He will declare judgment to the Gentiles.
12:19 He will not strive, nor shout; Neither will anyone hear his voice in the streets.
12:20 He won`t break a bruised reed, He won`t quench a smoking flax, Until he sends forth judgment to victory.
12:21 In his name, the Gentiles will hope."
12:23 All the multitudes were amazed, and said, "Can this be the son of David?"
12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "This man does not cast out demons, except by Beelzebul, the prince of the demons."
12:26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?
12:27 If I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges.
12:29 Or how can one enter into the house of the strong man, and plunder his goods, except he first bind the strong man? Then he will plunder his house.
12:30 He who is not with me is against me, and he who doesn`t gather with me, scatters.
12:32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, neither in this world, nor in that which is to come.
12:35 The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good things, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things.
12:38 Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, "Teacher, we want to see a sign from you."
12:39 But he answered them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there will no sign be given it but the sign of Jonah, the prophet.
12:41 The men of Nineveh will stand up in the judgment with this generation, and will condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, someone greater than Jonah is here.
12:42 The queen of the south will rise up in the judgment with this generation, and will condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, someone greater than Solomon is here.
12:43 But the unclean spirit, when he is gone out of the man, passes through waterless places, seeking rest, and doesn`t find it.
12:44 Then he says, `I will return into my house whence I came out,` and when he has come back, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
12:45 Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first. Even so will it be also to this evil generation."
12:46 While he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, seeking to speak to him.
12:47 One said to him, "Behold, your mother and your brothers stand outside, seeking to speak to you."
12:48 But he answered him who told him, "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?"
12:50 For whoever will do the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.
