Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

12:1At that time on the sabbath, Jesus went through the grain fields. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat.
12:2But seeing, the Pharisees said to Him, Behold, your disciples are doing what it is not lawful to do on the sabbath.
12:3But He said to them, Have you not read what David did, when he and those with him hungered?
12:4How he entered into the house of God, and he ate the Bread of Arrangement, which it was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those with him, but for the priests only?
12:5Or have you not read in the Law that on the sabbaths the priests in the temple profane the sabbath and are guiltless?
12:6But I say to you, One greater than the temple is here.
12:7But if you had known what this is, "I desire mercy and not sacrifice," you would not have condemned the guiltless. Hos. 6:6
12:8For the Son of man is also Lord of the sabbath.
12:9And moving from there, He came into their synagogue.
12:10And, behold, a man having a withered hand was there. And they asked Him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbaths? (that they might accuse Him).
12:11But He said to them, What man of you will be who will have one sheep, and if this one fall into a pit on the sabbaths, will he not lay hold of it and raise it up?
12:12How much more, then, does a man excel a sheep! So that it is lawful to do well on the sabbaths.
12:13Then He said to the man, Stretch out your hand! And he stretched out. And it was restored sound as the other.
12:14But as they were leaving, the Pharisees took up a council against Him, how they might destroy Him.
12:15But knowing, Jesus withdrew from there. And great crowds followed Him, and He healed them all
12:16and warned them that they should not make Him manifest.
12:17So that might be fulfilled that spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,
12:18"Behold My Child whom I chose, My Beloved, in whom My soul has delighted! I will put My Spirit on Him, and He will declare judgment to the nations.
12:19He will not strive nor cry out, nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
12:20A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, until He bring forth judgment to victory." Isa. 42:1 -3
12:21"And the nations will hope in His name." LXX-Isa. 42:4
12:22Then one having been demon-possessed was brought to Him, blind and dumb. And He healed him, so that the blind and dumb one could both speak and see.
12:23And all the crowds were amazed, and said, Is this not the son of David?
12:24But hearing, the Pharisees said, This one does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, ruler of the demons.
12:25But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, He said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to ruin. And every city or house divided against itself will not stand.
12:26And if Satan throws out Satan, he was divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?
12:27And if I throw out the demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons throw them out? Because of this, they shall be your judges.
12:28But if I cast out the demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come on you.
12:29Or how is anyone able to enter the house of the strong one and plunder his goods, if he does not first tie up the strong one; and then he will plunder his house?
12:30The one who is not with Me is against Me, and the one who does not gather with Me scatters.
12:31Because of this, I say to you, Every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy concerning the Spirit shall not be forgiven to men.
12:32And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, not in this age nor in the coming one .
12:33Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by the fruit.
12:34Offspring of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
12:35The good man out of the good treasure of the heart puts forth good things. And the evil man out of the evil treasure puts forth evil things.
12:36But I say to you, that every idle word, whatever men may speak, they shall give an account of it in Judgment Day.
12:37For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.
12:38Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, Teacher, we desire to see a sign from you.
12:39But answering, He said to them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
12:40And even as "Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish three days and three nights," so shall the Son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. Jon. 1:17
12:41Men, Ninevites, will stand up in the Judgment with this generation and will condemn it. For they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and, behold, a Greater-than-Jonah is here.
12:42The queen of the south will be raised 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, a Greater-than-Solomon is here.
12:43But when the unclean spirit goes from a man, he goes through dry places seeking rest and does not find it .
12:44Then he says, I will return to my house from which I came out. And coming, he finds it standing empty, swept and decorated.
12:45Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more evil than himself, and entering dwells there. And the last things of that man become worse than the first. So it will be also to this evil generation.
12:46But while He was yet speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him.
12:47Then one said to Him, Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak to You.
12:48But answering, He said to the one speaking to Him, Who is My mother? And who are My brothers?
12:49And stretching out His hand to His disciples, He said, Behold, My mother and My brothers.
12:50For whoever shall do the will of My Father in Heaven, that one is My brother and sister and mother.
