MK 3:1  And he entered again into the synagogue, and there was a man there who had a withered hand.

MK 3:2  And they watched him whether he would heal on the sabbath days; that they might accuse him.

MK 3:3  And he said to the man who had the withered hand: Stand up in the midst.

MK 3:4  And he saith to them: Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy? But they held their peace.

MK 3:5  And looking round about on them with anger, being grieved for the blindness of their hearts, he saith to the man: Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched it forth: and his hand was restored unto him.

MK 3:7  But Jesus retired with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude followed him from Galilee and Judea,

MK 3:9  And he spoke to his disciples that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

MK 3:16  And to Simon he gave the name Peter:

MK 3:17  And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he named them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

MK 3:19  And Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

MK 3:20  And they come to a house, and the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

MK 3:21  And when his friends had heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him. For they said: He is become mad.

MK 3:28  Amen I say to you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and the blasphemies wherewith they shall blaspheme:

MK 3:29  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin.

MK 3:30  Because they said: He hath an unclean spirit.

MK 3:31  And his mother and his bretheren came; and standing without, sent unto him, calling him.

MK 3:32  And the multitude sat about him; and they say to him: Behold thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

MK 3:33  And answering them, he said: Who is my mother and my brethren?

MK 3:34  And looking round about on them who sat about him, he saith: Behold my mother and my brethren.
