4:2 And walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers.
4:3 And he says to them, Come+ after me, and I will make you+ fishers of men. And they immediately left the nets, and followed him.
4:4 And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, preparing their nets; and he called them.
4:5 And they immediately left the boat and their father, and followed him.
4:6 And they go into Capernaum; and right away on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught.
4:7 And they were astonished at his teaching: for he taught them as [one] having authority, and not as their scribes.
4:8 And right away there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
4:9 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.
4:10 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold your peace, and come out of him.
4:11 And the unclean spirit, tearing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.
4:12 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.
4:13 And the report of him went out right away everywhere into all the region around Galilee.
4:14 And when Jesus came into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother lying sick of a fever.
4:15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose, and served him.

4:17 And there came to him a leper. And he fell on his face, and implored him, saying, Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.
4:18 And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be made clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4:19 And Jesus says to him, See you tell no man; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
4:20 And they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said to the sick of the palsy, Child, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven.
4:21 And look, certain of the scribes said to themselves, This man blasphemes.
4:22 And Jesus seeing their thoughts said, Why do you+ think evil in your+ hearts?
4:23 For which is easier, to say, Your sins are forgiven; or to say, Arise, and walk?
4:24 But that you+ may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins--then he says to the sick of the palsy, Arise, and take up your bed, and go to your house.
4:25 And he arose, and departed to his house.
4:26 But when the multitudes saw it, they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

4:28 And it came to pass, as he sat to eat in the house, look, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples.
4:29 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples, Why does your+ Teacher eat with the publicans and sinners?
4:30 But when he heard it, he said, Those who are whole have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I didn't come to call the righteous, but sinners.
4:31 Then the disciples of John come to him, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples don't fast?
