Luke 5

Coverdale(i) 1 It came to passe, yt the people preassed vpon him to heare the worde of God, and he stode by the lake of Genazereth, 2 and sawe two shippes stode by ye lake syde, but ye fishers were gone out of the, and had wasshed their nettes. 3 Then wente he in to one of the shippes, which was Symons, and prayed him, yt he wolde thrust out a litle fro the londe. And he sat him downe, and taught the people out of ye shippe. 4 And whan he had left of talkynge, he sayde vnto Symon: Launch out in to the depe & let slyppe yor nettes, to make a draught. 5 And Symon answered and sayde vnto him: Master, we haue laboured all ye night, and taken nothinge. But vpo thy worde, I wil lowse forth the nett. 6 And wha they had so done, they toke a greate multitude of fisshes, & their net brake. 7 And they made sygnes to their felowes which were in ye other shippe, yt they shulde come, & helpe the. And they came, & fylled both the shippes full, so yt they soncke. 8 Whan Symon Peter sawe yt, he fell downe at Iesus knees, & sayde: LORDE, go 9 fro me, for I am a synfull man: For he was astonnyed and all that were wt him, at this draught of fishes which they toke, 10 and so were Iames and Ihon also the sonnes of Zebede, which were Symons companyons. And Iesus sayde vnto Symo: Feare not, for fro hence forth thou shalt take men. 11 And they brought the shippes to londe, and left all, and folowed him. 12 And it fortuned as he was in a cite, beholde, there was a man full of leprosy. Wha he sawe Iesus, he fell vpo his face, & besought him, and sayde: LORDE, yf thou wilt, thou canst make me cleane. 13 And he stretched out his hade, and touched him, and sayde: I wil, be thou cleane. And immediatly the leprosy departed from him. 14 And he charged him, yt he shulde tell no ma, but go thy waye (sayde he) and shewe thyself vnto ye prest, and offre for yi clensynge, as Moses comaunded, for a witnesse vnto the. 15 But ye fame of hi wete out farther abrode, & there came moch people together, to heare him, & to be healed by hi fro their sicknesses. 16 And he departed in to the wyldernesses, & gaue him self to prayer. 17 And it fortuned vpo a daye, yt he taught, and there sat ye Pharises and scrybes, which were come out of all the townes of Galile, and Iewry, and fro Ierusale, and the power of the LORDE wete fro him, & healed euery man. 18 And beholde, certayne men brought vpon a bed, a man yt had ye palsye, and they sought how they might brynge him in, and laye him before him. 19 And whan they coude not fynde by what waye they might bringe him in (for ye people) they clymmed vp to ye toppe of the house, & let him downe thorow the tylinge wt the bed, amoge the before Iesus. 20 And whan he sawe their faith, he sayde vnto hi: Man, yi synnes are forgeue ye. 21 And the scrybes and pharyses begane to thynke, & saide: What is he this, yt speaketh blasphemy. Who ca forgeue synnes, but onely God? 22 Neuertheles wha Iesus perceaued their thoughtes, he answered, and saide vnto the: What thynke ye in yor hertes? 23 Whether is easier to saye: Thy synnes are forgeue ye, Or to saye: Aryse, and walke? 24 But that ye maye knowe, that the sonne of ma hath power to forgeue synnes vpon earth, he sayde vnto ye sicke of the palsie: I saye vnto ye: Aryse, take vp yi bed, and go home. 25 And immediatly he rose vp before the, & toke vp the bed yt he had lyen vpo, and wete home, and praysed God. 26 And they were all astonnyed, and gaue God ye prayse, and were fylled wt feare, and sayde: We haue sene maruelous thynges to daye. 27 And afterwarde he wete out, and sawe a publican named Leui, syttinge at ye receate of custome, & he sayde vnto him: Folowe me. 28 And he left all, rose vp, & folowed him. 29 And Leui made hi a greate feast i his house. And many publicans & other sat wt hi at ye table 30 And the scrybes and Pharyses murmured agaynst his disciples, & saide: Wherfore do ye eate & drynke wt publicas & synners? 31 And Iesus answered, & sayde vnto the: The whole nede not ye phisician, but they yt are sicke. 32 I am not come to call ye righteous, but sinners to repentauce. 33 But they sayde vnto him: Wherfore fast ye disciples of Iho so of, & praye so moch, & the disciples of the Pharises likewyse, but yi disciples eate and drynke? 34 And he sayde vnto them: Can ye make the weddynge childre fast, so loge as the brydegrome is with the? 35 But the tyme wil come that the brydegrome shalbe take fro the, then shal they fast. 36 And he sayde vnto them a symilitude: No man putteth a pece of new cloth in to an olde garment: for els he renteth the new, and the pece of the new agreeth not with the olde. 37 And no man putteth new wyne in to olde vessels, for els ye new wyne barsteth the vessels, and runneth out it self, and the vessels perishe. 38 But new wyne must be put in to new vessels, and so are they both preserued. 39 And there is no man that drynketh the olde, and wolde straight waye haue the new, for he sayeth: the olde is pleasaunter.
