25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us; we perish.
26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and, when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.
27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! 28
And when he was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.
31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
32 And he said unto them, Go. And, when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine; and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

Christ cureth the palsy, 9 calleth Matthew, 10 eateth with publicans and sinners. AND he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.
2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed; and Jesus, seeing their faith, said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
4 And, Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
5 For whether is it easier to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk?
6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
And he arose, and departed to his house.

11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Mas ter with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
18 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy and not sacrifice; for I am not come to call the righteous,b but sinners to repentance.
14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourn as

17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles; else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish; but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead; but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
19 And Jesus arose and fol
The meaning of the 15, 16, and 17th verses is; as it would be unbecoming those invited to the joyful ceremony of a wedding, to mourn and fast; and as it would not be proper to mend an old garment with new, undressed cloth, or to put new wine into old, decayed, leathern bottles; so it would be equally improper for my disciples to mourn and fast, while I, the great head, and as it were, the bridegroom of the church, am present with them; but they will have abundant cause to mourn when they shall be deprived of my presence.

20 (And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment.
21 For she said within her self, If I may but touch his garment I shall be whole.
22 But Jesus turned him ahout; and, when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.)

24 He said unto them, Give place; for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
25 But when the people were put forth he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.
28 And when he was come into the house the blind men came to him and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, e and healing every sickness, and every disease, among the people.
36 But when he saw the multitudes he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous,f but the labourers are few:

d Dust of your feet. The Jews thought there was so peculiar a boli ness in the land of Israel, that when they came from a heathen country, they stopped at its borders, and wiped the dust from their shoes, lest it should pollute the Holy Land.
