Mark 3:1-19 Darby’s Translation

The Man with a Withered Hand

3 1  And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was there a man having his hand dried up. 2  And they watched him if he would heal him on the sabbath, that they might accuse him. 3  And he says to the man who had his hand dried up, Rise up [and come] into the midst. 4  And he says to them, Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they were silent. 5  And looking round upon them with anger, distressed at the hardening of their heart, he says to the man, Stretch out thy hand. And he stretched [it] out, and his hand was restored. 6  And the Pharisees going out straightway with the Herodians took counsel against him, how they might destroy him.

A Multitude at the Seaside

7  And Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, 8  and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea and beyond the Jordan; and they of around Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, having heard what things he did, came to him. 9  And he spoke to his disciples, in order that a little ship should wait upon him on account of the crowd, that they might not press upon him. 10  For he healed many, so that they beset him that they might touch him, as many as had plagues. 11  And the unclean spirits, when they beheld him, fell down before him, and cried saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12  And he rebuked them much, that they might not make him manifest.

Jesus Chooses the Twelve

13  And he goes up into the mountain, and calls whom he himself would, and they went to him. 14  And he appointed twelve that they might be with him, and that he might send them to preach, 15  and to have power [to heal diseases, and] to cast out demons. 16  And he gave to Simon the surname of Peter; 17  and James the [son] of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and he gave them the surname of Boanerges, that 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 Iscariote, who also delivered him up. And they come to [the] house.
