Matthew 9 : 16 - 38

Chapter 9

16No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse.
17Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."
18While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live."
19So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples.
20And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment.
21For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well."
22But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.
23When Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd wailing,
24He said to them, "Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping." And they ridiculed Him.
25But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose.
26And the report of this went out into all that land.
27When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, "Son of David, have mercy on us!"
28And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord."
29Then He touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith let it be to you."
30And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, saying, "See that no one knows it."
31But when they had departed, they spread the news about Him in all that country.
32As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a man, mute and demon-possessed.
33And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke. And the multitudes marveled, saying, "It was never seen like this in Israel!"
34But the Pharisees said, "He casts out demons by the ruler of the demons."
35Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
37Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
