Luke 5 ©
Christ teacheth the people out of Simon's ship. The miraculous draught of fishes: Simon and the two sons of Zebedee follow him. Christ cleanseth a leper; prayeth in the wilderness: answereth the reasonings of the scribes and Pharisees concerning his forgiving sins, and healeth the sick of the palsy: calleth Levi from the receipt of custom: justifieth his eating with publicans and sinners: excuseth his disciples from fasting for the present; and illustrateth the matter by a twofold parable.
And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people eout of the ship.
Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, fLaunch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a *draught.
¶sAnd it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and tbesought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou ucanst make me clean.
And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were bPharisees and c*doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and dthe power of the Lord was present to heal them.
*Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?
But that ye may know that the lSon of man hath mpower upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the *palsy,) nI say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.
¶And he spake also a parable unto them; fNo man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new gagreeth not with the old.
And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The hold is better.
