And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, 3 saying, I will ; be thou made clean. And straightway his leprosy was cleansed.

And as Jesus passed by from thence, he saw a 9 man, called Matthew, sitting at the place of toll: and he saith unto him, Follow me.

And he arose, and followed him. and so always.

And it came to pass, as he 'sat at meat in the 10 house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples. And when 11 the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with the publicans and sinners? But when he heard it, he said, They that 12 are *whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what this mean-13 eth, I desire mercy, and not sacritice: for I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.

Then come to him the disciples of John, saying, 14 thorities omit oft. Why do we and the Pharisees fast soft, but thy

disciples fast not? And Jesus said unto them, Can 15 the sons of the bride-chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then will they fast.

While he spake these things unto them, behold, 18 there came 'a ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. And Jesus 19 arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. And behold, a woman, who had an issue of blood 20 twelve years, came behind him, and touched the
