Matthew 12


Mat 12:1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples became hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat.
Mat 12:2 But when the Pharisees saw this, they said to Him," Look, Your disciples do what is not lawful to do on a Sabbath."
Mat 12:3 But He said to them," Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, he and his companions,
Mat 12:4 how he entered the house of God, and they ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for him to eat nor for those with him, but for the priests alone?
Mat 12:5 Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath and are innocent?
Mat 12:6 But I say to you that something greater than the temple is here.
Mat 12:7 But if you had known what this means, 'I desire compassion, and not a sacrifice, 'you would not have condemned the innocent.
Mat 12:8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
Mat 12:9 Departing from there, He went into their synagogue.
Mat 12:10 And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned Jesus, asking," Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?""so that they might accuse Him.
Mat 12:11 And He said to them," What man is there among you who has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out?
Mat 12:12 How much more valuable then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."
Mat 12:13 Then He said to the man," Stretch out your hand!" He stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other.
Mat 12:14 But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him, as to how they might destroy Him.
Mat 12:15 But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and He healed them all,
Mat 12:16 and warned them not to tell who He was.
Mat 12:17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
Mat 12:18 "Behold, My Servant whom I have chosen; My Beloved in whom My soul is well-pleased; I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He shall proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
Mat 12:19 "He will not quarrel, nor cry out; Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
Mat 12:20 "A battered reed He will not break off, And a smoldering wick He will not put out, Until He leads justice to victory.
Mat 12:21 "And in His name the Gentiles will hope."
Mat 12:22 Then a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute was brought to Jesus, and He healed him, so that the mute man spoke and saw.
Mat 12:23 All the crowds were amazed, and were saying," This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?"
Mat 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said," This man casts out demons only by Beelzebul the ruler of the demons."
Mat 12:25 And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them," Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand.
Mat 12:26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand?
Mat 12:27 If I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges.
Mat 12:28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
Mat 12:29 Or how can anyone enter the strong man's house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
Mat 12:30 He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.
Mat 12:31 "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven.
Mat 12:32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
Mat 12:33 "Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.
Mat 12:34 You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.
Mat 12:35 The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil.
Mat 12:36 But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.
Mat 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."
Mat 12:38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him," Teacher, we want to see a sign from You."
Mat 12:39 But He answered and said to them," An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet;
Mat 12:40 for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Mat 12:41 The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
Mat 12:42 The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.
Mat 12:43 "Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it.
Mat 12:44 Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order.
Mat 12:45 Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."
Mat 12:46 While He was still speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him.
Mat 12:47 Someone said to Him," Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You."
Mat 12:48 But Jesus answered the one who was telling Him and said," Who is My mother and who are My brothers?"
Mat 12:49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said," Behold My mother and My brothers!
Mat 12:50 For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother."

Mat 12:2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

Mat 12:3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him; (kjv) Mat 12:3 But He said to them," Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, he and his companions, Mat 12:3 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, οὐκ ἀνέγνωτε τί ἐποίησεν δαυὶδ ὅτε ἐπείνασεν καὶ οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ;
Mat 12:4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?

Mat 12:4 πῶς εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοὺς ἄρτους τῆς προθέσεως ἔφαγον, ὃ οὐκ ἐξὸν ἦν αὐτῶ φαγεῖν οὐδὲ τοῖς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ, εἰ μὴ τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν μόνοις;
Mat 12:5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless? (kjv) Mat 12:5 Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath and are innocent? Mat 12:5 ἢ οὐκ ἀνέγνωτε ἐν τῶ νόμῳ ὅτι τοῖς σάββασιν οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐν τῶ ἱερῶ τὸ σάββατον βεβηλοῦσιν καὶ ἀναίτιοί εἰσιν;
Mat 12:6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple. (kjv) Mat 12:6 But I say to you that something greater than the temple is here. Mat 12:6 λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι τοῦ ἱεροῦ μεῖζόν ἐστιν ὧδε.

Mat 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? (kjv) Mat 12:11 And He said to them," What man is there among you who has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out? Mat 12:11 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, τίς ἔσται ἐξ ὑμῶν ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἕξει πρόβατον ἕν, καὶ ἐὰν ἐμπέσῃ τοῦτο τοῖς σάββασιν εἰς βόθυνον, οὐχὶ κρατήσει αὐτὸ καὶ ἐγερεῖ;
Mat 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. (kjv) Mat 12:12 How much more valuable then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath." Mat 12:12 πόσῳ οὗν διαφέρει ἄνθρωπος προβάτου. ὥστε ἔξεστιν τοῖς σάββασιν καλῶς ποιεῖν.
Mat 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. (kjv) Mat 12:13 Then He said to the man," Stretch out your hand!" He stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other. Mat 12:13 τότε λέγει τῶ ἀνθρώπῳ, ἔκτεινόν σου τὴν χεῖρα. καὶ ἐξέτεινεν, καὶ ἀπεκατεστάθη ὑγιὴς ὡς ἡ ἄλλη.
Mat 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. (kjv) Mat 12:14 But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. Mat 12:14 ἐξελθόντες δὲ οἱ φαρισαῖοι συμβούλιον ἔλαβον κατ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὅπως αὐτὸν ἀπολέσωσιν.
Mat 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all; (kjv) Mat 12:15 But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there.

Mat 12:16 And charged them that they should not make him known: (kjv) Mat 12:16 and warned them not to tell who He was. Mat 12:16 καὶ ἐπετίμησεν αὐτοῖς ἵνα μὴ φανερὸν αὐτὸν ποιήσωσιν·
Mat 12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, (kjv) Mat 12:17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: Mat 12:17 ἵνα πληρωθῇ τὸ ῥηθὲν διὰ ἠσαΐου τοῦ προφήτου λέγοντος,

Mat 12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? (kjv) Mat 12:23 All the crowds were amazed, and were saying," This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?" Mat 12:23 καὶ ἐξίσταντο πάντες οἱ ὄχλοι καὶ ἔλεγον, μήτι οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς δαυίδ;

(kjv) Mat 12:27 If I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges.

Mat 12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. (kjv) Mat 12:29 Or how can anyone enter the strong man's house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. Mat 12:29 ἢ πῶς δύναταί τις εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν τοῦ ἰσχυροῦ καὶ τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ἁρπάσαι, ἐὰν μὴ πρῶτον δήσῃ τὸν ἰσχυρόν; καὶ τότε τὴν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ διαρπάσει.
Mat 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (kjv) Mat 12:30 He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters. Mat 12:30 ὁ μὴ ὢν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ κατ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐστιν, καὶ ὁ μὴ συνάγων μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ σκορπίζει.
Mat 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. (kjv) Mat 12:31 "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. Mat 12:31 διὰ τοῦτο λέγω ὑμῖν, πᾶσα ἁμαρτία καὶ βλασφημία ἀφεθήσεται τοῖς ἀνθρώποις, ἡ δὲ τοῦ πνεύματος βλασφημία οὐκ ἀφεθήσεται.
Mat 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (kjv) Mat 12:32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. (kjv) Mat 12:33 "Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. Mat 12:33 ἢ ποιήσατε τὸ δένδρον καλὸν καὶ τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ καλόν, ἢ ποιήσατε τὸ δένδρον σαπρὸν καὶ τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ σαπρόν· ἐκ γὰρ τοῦ καρποῦ τὸ δένδρον γινώσκεται.
Mat 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. (kjv) Mat 12:34 You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. Mat 12:34 γεννήματα ἐχιδνῶν, πῶς δύνασθε ἀγαθὰ λαλεῖν πονηροὶ ὄντες; ἐκ γὰρ τοῦ περισσεύματος τῆς καρδίας τὸ στόμα λαλεῖ.
Mat 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. (kjv) Mat 12:35 The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil. Mat 12:35 ὁ ἀγαθὸς ἄνθρωπος ἐκ τοῦ ἀγαθοῦ θησαυροῦ ἐκβάλλει ἀγαθά, καὶ ὁ πονηρὸς ἄνθρωπος ἐκ τοῦ πονηροῦ θησαυροῦ ἐκβάλλει πονηρά.
Mat 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (kjv) Mat 12:36 But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. Mat 12:36 λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι πᾶν ῥῆμα ἀργὸν ὃ λαλήσουσιν οἱ ἄνθρωποι ἀποδώσουσιν περὶ αὐτοῦ λόγον ἐν ἡμέρᾳ κρίσεως·
Mat 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (kjv) Mat 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." Mat 12:37 ἐκ γὰρ τῶν λόγων σου δικαιωθήσῃ, καὶ ἐκ τῶν λόγων σου καταδικασθήσῃ.
Mat 12:38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. (kjv) Mat 12:38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him," Teacher, we want to see a sign from You." Mat 12:38 τότε ἀπεκρίθησαν αὐτῶ τινες τῶν γραμματέων καὶ φαρισαίων λέγοντες, διδάσκαλε, θέλομεν ἀπὸ σοῦ σημεῖον ἰδεῖν.
Mat 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: (kjv) Mat 12:39 But He answered and said to them," An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; Mat 12:39 ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, γενεὰ πονηρὰ καὶ μοιχαλὶς σημεῖον ἐπιζητεῖ, καὶ σημεῖον οὐ δοθήσεται αὐτῇ εἰ μὴ τὸ σημεῖον ἰωνᾶ τοῦ προφήτου.
Mat 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (kjv) Mat 12:40 for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Mat 12:40 ὥσπερ γὰρ ἦν ἰωνᾶς ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ τοῦ κήτους τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας, οὕτως ἔσται ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ τῆς γῆς τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας.
Mat 12:41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. (kjv) Mat 12:41 The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. Mat 12:41 ἄνδρες νινευῖται ἀναστήσονται ἐν τῇ κρίσει μετὰ τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης καὶ κατακρινοῦσιν αὐτήν· ὅτι μετενόησαν εἰς τὸ κήρυγμα ἰωνᾶ, καὶ ἰδοὺ πλεῖον ἰωνᾶ ὧδε.
Mat 12:42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. (kjv) Mat 12:42 The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. Mat 12:42 βασίλισσα νότου ἐγερθήσεται ἐν τῇ κρίσει μετὰ τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης καὶ κατακρινεῖ αὐτήν· ὅτι ἦλθεν ἐκ τῶν περάτων τῆς γῆς ἀκοῦσαι τὴν σοφίαν σολομῶνος, καὶ ἰδοὺ πλεῖον σολομῶνος ὧδε.
Mat 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. (kjv) Mat 12:43 "Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. Mat 12:43 ὅταν δὲ τὸ ἀκάθαρτον πνεῦμα ἐξέλθῃ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, διέρχεται δι᾽ ἀνύδρων τόπων ζητοῦν ἀνάπαυσιν, καὶ οὐχ εὑρίσκει.
Mat 12:44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. (kjv) Mat 12:44 Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Mat 12:44 τότε λέγει, εἰς τὸν οἶκόν μου ἐπιστρέψω ὅθεν ἐξῆλθον· καὶ ἐλθὸν εὑρίσκει σχολάζοντα σεσαρωμένον καὶ κεκοσμημένον.
Mat 12:45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. (kjv) Mat 12:45 Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation." Mat 12:45 τότε πορεύεται καὶ παραλαμβάνει μεθ᾽ ἑαυτοῦ ἑπτὰ ἕτερα πνεύματα πονηρότερα ἑαυτοῦ, καὶ εἰσελθόντα κατοικεῖ ἐκεῖ· καὶ γίνεται τὰ ἔσχατα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκείνου χείρονα τῶν πρώτων. οὕτως ἔσται καὶ τῇ γενεᾷ ταύτῃ τῇ πονηρᾷ.
Mat 12:46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. (kjv) Mat 12:46 While He was still speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him. Mat 12:46 ἔτι αὐτοῦ λαλοῦντος τοῖς ὄχλοις ἰδοὺ ἡ μήτηρ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ εἱστήκεισαν ἔξω ζητοῦντες αὐτῶ λαλῆσαι.
Mat 12:47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. (kjv) Mat 12:47 Someone said to Him," Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You." Mat 12:47 [εἶπεν δέ τις αὐτῶ, ἰδοὺ ἡ μήτηρ σου καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοί σου ἔξω ἑστήκασιν ζητοῦντές σοι λαλῆσαι.]
Mat 12:48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? (kjv) Mat 12:48 But Jesus answered the one who was telling Him and said," Who is My mother and who are My brothers?" Mat 12:48 ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν τῶ λέγοντι αὐτῶ, τίς ἐστιν ἡ μήτηρ μου, καὶ τίνες εἰσὶν οἱ ἀδελφοί μου;
Mat 12:49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! (kjv) Mat 12:49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said," Behold My mother and My brothers! Mat 12:49 καὶ ἐκτείνας τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ εἶπεν, ἰδοὺ ἡ μήτηρ μου καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοί μου·
Mat 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.(kjv) Mat 12:50 For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother." Mat 12:50 ὅστις γὰρ ἂν ποιήσῃ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πατρός μου τοῦ ἐν οὐρανοῖς αὐτός μου ἀδελφὸς καὶ ἀδελφὴ καὶ μήτηρ ἐστίν.
