1 Initium evangelii Iesu Christi Filii Dei.
2 Sicut scriptum est in Isaia propheta: "Ecce mitto angelum meum ante faciem tuam, qui praeparabit viam tuam;
3 vox clamantis in deserto: "Parate viam Domini, rectas facite semitas eius" ",
4 fuit Ioannes Baptista in deserto praedicans baptismum paenitentiae in remissionem peccatorum.
5 Et egrediebatur ad illum omnis Iudaeae regio et Hierosolymitae universi et baptizabantur ab illo in Iordane flumine confitentes peccata sua.
6 Et erat Ioannes vestitus pilis cameli, et zona pellicea circa lumbos eius, et locustas et mel silvestre edebat.
7 Et praedicabat dicens: "Venit fortior me post me, cuius non sum dignus procumbens solvere corrigiam calceamentorum eius.
8 Ego baptizavi vos aqua; ille vero baptizabit vos in Spiritu Sancto".
9 Et factum est in diebus illis, venit Iesus a Nazareth Galilaeae et baptizatus est in Iordane ab Ioanne.
10 Et statim ascendens de aqua vidit apertos caelos et Spiritum tamquam columbam descendentem in ipsum;
11 et vox facta est de caelis: "Tu es Filius meus dilectus; in te complacui".
12 Et statim Spiritus expellit eum in desertum.
13 Et erat in deserto quadraginta diebus et tentabatur a Satana; eratque cum bestiis, et angeli ministrabant illi.
14 Postquam autem traditus est Ioannes, venit Iesus in Galilaeam praedicans evangelium Dei
15 et dicens: "Impletum est tempus, et appropinquavit regnum Dei; paenitemini et credite evangelio".
16 Et praeteriens secus mare Galilaeae vidit Simonem et Andream fratrem Simonis mittentes in mare; erant enim piscatores.
17 Et dixit eis Iesus: "Venite post me, et faciam vos fieri piscatores hominum".
18 Et protinus, relictis retibus, secuti sunt eum.
19 Et progressus pusillum vidit Iacobum Zebedaei et Ioannem fratrem eius, et ipsos in navi componentes retia,
20 et statim vocavit illos. Et, relicto patre suo Zebedaeo in navi cum mercennariis, abierunt post eum.
21 Et ingrediuntur Capharnaum. Et statim sabbatis ingressus synagogam docebat.
22 Et stupebant super doctrina eius: erat enim docens eos quasi potestatem habens et non sicut scribae.
23 Et statim erat in synagoga eorum homo in spiritu immundo; et exclamavit
24 dicens: "Quid nobis et tibi, Iesu Nazarene? Venisti perdere nos? Scio qui sis: Sanctus Dei".
25 Et comminatus est ei Iesus dicens: "Obmutesce et exi de homine!".
26 Et discerpens eum spiritus immundus et exclamans voce magna exivit ab eo.
27 Et mirati sunt omnes, ita ut conquirerent inter se dicentes: "Quidnam est hoc? Doctrina nova cum potestate; et spiritibus immundis imperat, et oboediunt ei".
28 Et processit rumor eius statim ubique in omnem regionem Galilaeae.
29 Et protinus egredientes de synagoga venerunt in domum Simonis et Andreae cum Iacobo et Ioanne.
30 Socrus autem Simonis decumbebat febricitans; et statim dicunt ei de illa.
31 Et accedens elevavit eam apprehensa manu; et dimisit eam febris, et ministrabat eis.
32 Vespere autem facto, cum occidisset sol, afferebant ad eum omnes male habentes et daemonia habentes;
33 et erat omnis civitas congregata ad ianuam.
34 Et curavit multos, qui vexabantur variis languoribus, et daemonia multa eiecit et non sinebat loqui daemonia, quoniam sciebant eum.
35 Et diluculo valde mane surgens egressus est et abiit in desertum locum ibique orabat.
36 Et persecutus est eum Simon et qui cum illo erant;
37 et cum invenissent eum, dixerunt ei: "Omnes quaerunt te!".
38 Et ait illis: "Eamus alibi in proximos vicos, ut et ibi praedicem: ad hoc enim veni".
39 Et venit praedicans in synagogis eorum per omnem Galilaeam et daemonia eiciens.
40 Et venit ad eum leprosus deprecans eum et genu flectens et dicens ei: "Si vis, potes me mundare".
41 Et misertus extendens manum suam tetigit eum et ait illi: "Volo, mundare!";
42 et statim discessit ab eo lepra, et mundatus est.
43 Et infremuit in eum statimque eiecit illum
44 et dicit ei: "Vide, nemini quidquam dixeris; sed vade, ostende te sacerdoti et offer pro emundatione tua, quae praecepit Moyses, in testimonium illis".
45 At ille egressus coepit praedicare multum et diffamare sermonem, ita ut iam non posset manifesto in civitatem introire, sed foris in desertis locis erat; et conveniebant ad eum undique.
King James Version
1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
7 And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.
9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12 And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
19 And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
20 And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.
21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
29 And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.
31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.
33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.
34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
36 And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.
37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.
38 And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.
39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
40 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.
42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
43 And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;
44 And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
