Matthew Outline
Matthew 9:1 Matthew 9:17

1 And stepping into a boat, He crossed over and came to His 1aown city.

2 aAnd behold, they brought to Him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And Jesus, 1seeing their bfaith, said to the paralytic, Take ccourage, child; your 2sins are dforgiven.

3 And behold, some of the 1scribes said within themselves, This man 2ablasphemes.

4 And Jesus, 1aknowing their 2thoughts, said, Why are you bthinking evil things in your hearts?

5 For which is 1easier, to say, Your sins are forgiven, or to say, 2Rise and walk?

6 But that you may know that the aSon of Man has 1authority on earth to bforgive sins -- then He said to the paralytic, Rise, 2ctake up your bed and 3go to your house.

7 And he 1rose and went away to his house.

8 And when the crowds saw this, they afeared and bglorified God, who had given such authority to men.


9 aAnd as Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man sitting at the tax office, called 1bMatthew, and He said to him, 2cFollow Me. And he rose and 3followed Him.

10 And as He was reclining at table in the 1house, behold, many 2atax collectors and bsinners came and reclined together with Jesus and His disciples.

11 And when the 1Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, 2Why does your Teacher eat with the tax collectors and sinners?

12 Now when He heard this, He said, Those who are strong have no need of a 1physician, but those who are 2ill.

13 But go and 1learn what this means, a"I desire 2mercy and not bsacrifice,'' for I did not come to call the 3crighteous, but dsinners.


14 aThen the bdisciples of John came to Him, saying, 1Why do we and the Pharisees 2cfast 3much, but Your ddisciples do 4not fast?

15 And Jesus said to them, The 1sons of the bridechamber cannot mourn as long as the 2abridegroom is with them, can they? But bdays will come when the bridegroom will be 3taken away from them, and then they will cfast.

16 No one puts a patch of 1unfulled cloth on an 2old garment, for that which fills it up pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear is made.

17 Neither do they put 1new wine into 2aold wineskins; otherwise, the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out, and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into 3bfresh wineskins, and both are preserved.
