Mark 3:1-19 American Standard Version

The Man with a Withered Hand

3 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there who had his hand withered. 2  And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. 3  And he saith unto the man that had his hand withered, Stand forth. 4  And he saith unto them, Is it lawful on the sabbath day to do good, or to do harm? to save a life, or to kill? But they held their peace. 5  And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved at the hardening of their heart, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched it forth; and his hand was restored. 6  And the Pharisees went out, and straightway with the Herodians took counsel against him, how they might destroy him.

A Multitude at the Seaside

7  And Jesus with his disciples withdrew to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed; and from Judaea, 8  and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and beyond the Jordan, and about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, hearing what great things he did, came unto him. 9  And he spake to his disciples, that a little boat should wait on him because of the crowd, lest they should throng him: 10  for he had healed many; insomuch that as many as had plagues pressed upon him that they might touch him. 11  And the unclean spirits, whensoever they beheld him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12  And he charged them much that they should not make him known.

Jesus Chooses the Twelve

13  And he goeth up into the mountain, and calleth unto him whom he himself would; and they went unto him. 14  And he appointed twelve, that they might be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, 15  and to have authority to cast out demons: 16  and Simon he surnamed Peter; 17  and James the [son] of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and them he surnamed Boanerges, which is, Sons of thunder: 18  and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the [son] of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19  and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. And he cometh into a house.
