Mark chapter 3
3:1 | Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there who had a withered hand.
3:2 | They watched him to see whether he would cure him on the sabbath, so that they might accuse him.
3:3 | And he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Come forward."
3:4 | Then he said to them, "Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to kill?" But they were silent.
3:5 | He looked around at them with anger; he was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
3:6 | The Pharisees went out and immediately conspired with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him.
3:7 | Jesus departed with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him;
3:8 | hearing all that he was doing, they came to him in great numbers from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, beyond the Jordan, and the region around Tyre and Sidon.
3:9 | He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him;
3:10 | for he had cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him.
3:11 | Whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and shouted, "You are the Son of God!"
3:12 | But he sternly ordered them not to make him known.
3:13 | He went up the mountain and called to him those whom he wanted, and they came to him.
3:14 | And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message,
3:15 | and to have authority to cast out demons.
3:16 | So he appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter);
3:17 | James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder);
3:18 | and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean,
3:19 | and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Then he went home;
3:20 | and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat.
3:21 | When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, "He has gone out of his mind."
3:22 | And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons."
3:23 | And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, "How can Satan cast out Satan?
3:24 | If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
3:25 | And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
3:26 | And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come.
3:28 | "Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter;
3:29 | but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin"-
3:30 | for they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
3:31 | Then his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him.
3:32 | A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, "Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you."
3:33 | And he replied, "Who are my mother and my brothers?"
3:34 | And looking at those who sat around him, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers!
3:35 | Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother."
