3:2 And they watched him if he would heal him on the sabbath, that they might accuse him.
3:3 And he says to the man who had his hand dried up, Rise up [and come] into the midst.
3:4 And he says to them, Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they were silent.
3:5 And looking round upon them with anger, distressed at the hardening of their heart, he says to the man, Stretch out thy hand. And he stretched [it] out, and his hand was restored.

3:7 And Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
3:8 and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea and beyond the Jordan; and they of around Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, having heard what things he did, came to him.
3:9 And he spoke to his disciples, in order that a little ship should wait upon him on account of the crowd, that they might not press upon him.
3:10 For he healed many, so that they beset him that they might touch him, as many as had plagues.
3:11 And the unclean spirits, when they beheld him, fell down before him, and cried saying, *Thou* art the Son of God.
3:12 And he rebuked them much, that they might not make him manifest.
3:13 And he goes up into the mountain, and calls whom he himself would, and they went to him.
3:14 And he appointed twelve that they might be with him, and that he might send them to preach,
3:15 and to have power [to heal diseases, and] to cast out demons.
3:16 And he gave to Simon the surname of Peter;
3:17 and James the [son] of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and he gave them the surname of Boanerges, that is, Sons of thunder;
3:18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the [son] of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean,
3:19 and Judas Iscariote, who also delivered him up. And they come to [the] house.
3:20 And again a crowd comes together, so that they cannot even eat bread.
3:21 And his relatives having heard [of it] went out to lay hold on him, for they said, He is out of his mind.
3:22 And the scribes who had come down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the prince of the demons he casts out demons.
3:23 And having called them to [him], he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
3:24 And if a kingdom has become divided against itself, that kingdom cannot subsist.
3:25 And if a house has become divided against itself, that house cannot subsist.

3:28 Verily I say unto you, that all sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and all the injurious speeches [with] which they may speak injuriously;
3:29 but whosoever shall speak injuriously against the Holy Spirit, to eternity has no forgiveness; but lies under the guilt of an everlasting sin;
3:30 -- because they said, He has an unclean spirit.
3:31 And his brethren and his mother come, and standing without sent to him calling him.
3:32 And a crowd sat around him. And they said to him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren seek thee without.
3:33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother or my brethren?
3:34 And looking around in a circuit at those that were sitting around him, he says, Behold my mother and my brethren:
3:35 for whosoever shall do the will of God, *he* is my brother, and sister, and mother.
