1:2 Even as it is written in Isaiah the prophet, Look, I send my messenger before your face, Who will prepare your way;
1:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make+ ready the way of Yahweh, Make his paths straight;
1:4 John the Baptist came in the wilderness and was preaching a baptism of repentance to remission of sins.
1:5 And all the country of Judea, and all those of Jerusalem went out to him; and they were baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.
1:6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and [had] a leather loincloth about his loins, and ate locusts and wild honey.
1:7 And he preached, saying, There comes after me he who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
1:8 I baptized you+ in water; but he will baptize you+ in the Holy Spirit.
1:9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan.
1:10 And immediately coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens rent apart, and the Spirit as a dove descending on him:
1:11 and a voice came out of the heavens, You are my beloved Son, in you I am well pleased.
1:12 And right away the Spirit drives him forth into the wilderness.
1:13 And he was in the wilderness forty days tried by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels were serving him.
1:14 Now after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news of God,
1:15 and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent+, and believe+ in the good news.
1:16 And passing along by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishers.
1:17 And Jesus said to them, Come+ after me, and I will make you+ to become fishers of men.
1:18 And immediately they left the nets, and followed him.
1:19 And going on a little further, he saw James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat preparing the nets.
1:20 And immediately he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired workers, and went after him.
1:21 And they go into Capernaum; and right away on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught.
1:22 And they were astonished at his teaching: for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes.
1:23 And right away there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
1:24 saying, What do we have to do with you, Jesus you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are, the Holy One of God.
1:25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace, and come out of him.
1:26 And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.
1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What is this? A new teaching! With authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.
1:28 And the report of him went out right away everywhere into all the region around Galilee.
1:29 And right away, when they had come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
1:30 Now Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever; and right away they tell him of her:
1:31 and he came and took her by the hand, and raised her up; and the fever left her, and she served them.

1:33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.
1:34 And he healed many who were sick with diverse diseases, and cast out many demons; and he didn't allow the demons to speak, because they knew him.
1:35 And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed.
1:36 And Simon and those who were with him followed after him;
1:37 and they found him, and say to him, All are seeking you.
1:38 And he says to them, Let us go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for to this end I came forth.
1:39 And he went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons.
1:40 And there comes to him a leper, imploring him, and kneeling down, and saying to him, If you will, you can make me clean.
1:41 And being moved with compassion, he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, and says to him, I will; be made clean.
1:42 And immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean.
1:43 And he strictly charged him, and immediately sent him out,
1:44 and says to him, See [that] you say nothing to any man: but go show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing the things which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
1:45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to spread abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city, but was outside in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
