1The beginning of the Gospel (joyful message) of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], the Son of God-Theos;
2As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before youri face, which shall prepare youri way before youi.
3The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare you2f the way of the Lord - Kurios, make his paths straight.
4Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the forgiveness (pardon) of sins.
5And there went out unto him all the land of Y’hudah [praised], and they of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], and were all baptized of him in the river of Yarden [descender], confessing their sins.
6And Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a belt of a skin about his waist; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
7And preached, saying, There comes one mightier than I after me, the sandal lace of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
8I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh].
9And it came to pass in those days, that Yeshua [God is Salvation] came from Natzeret [one separated] of Galil [circuit, district], and was baptized of Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] in Yarden [descender].
10And immediately coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit [Ruach] like a dove descending upon him:
11And there came a voice from heaven, [saying], youi are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
12And immediately the Spirit [Ruach] drives him into the wilderness.
13And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tried or tested of Satan [the adversary]; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
14Now after that Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] was put in prison, Yeshua [God is Salvation] came into Galil [circuit, district], preaching the Gospel (joyful message) of the kingdom of God-Theos,
15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God-Theos is at hand: repent you2f, and believe the Gospel (joyful message).
16Now as he walked by the sea of Galil [circuit, district], he saw Shim’on [he has heard] and Andrew [of a man] his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
17And Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto them, Come you2f after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18And immediately they forsook their nets, and followed him.
19And when he had gone a little further there, he saw Ya’akov [heal-grabber] the [son] of Zavdai [Yah has bestowed], and Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
20And immediately he called them: and they left their father Zavdai [Yah has bestowed] in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.
21And they went into K’far-Nachum [town of comfort]; and immediately on the Shabbat [rest] day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
22And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the Torah-teachers (Scribes).
23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean Spirit [Ruach]; and he cried out,
24Saying, Let [us] alone; what have we to do with youi, youi Yeshua [God is Salvation] of Natzeret [one separated]? are youi come to destroy us? I know youi who youi are, the Holy One of God-Theos.
25And Yeshua [God is Salvation] rebuked him, saying, Hold youri peace, and come out of him.
26And when the unclean Spirit [Ruach] had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine [is] this? for with authority commands he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
28And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galil [circuit, district].
29And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Shim’on [he has heard] and Andrew [of a man], with Ya’akov [heal-grabber] and Yochanan [Yehovah has graced].
30But Shim’on [he has heard]’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.
31And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
32And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with demons.
33And all the city was gathered together at the door.
34And he healed many that were sick of different diseases, and cast out many demons; and did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew him.
35And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
36And Shim’on [he has heard] and they that were with him followed after him.
37And when they had found him, they said unto him, All [men] seek for youi.
38And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.
39And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galil [circuit, district], and cast out demons.
40And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If youi will, youi can make me clean.
41And Yeshua [God is Salvation], moved with compassion, put forth [his] hand, and touched him, and says unto him, I will; be youi clean.
42And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
43And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;
44And says unto him, See youi say nothing to any man: but go youri way, show yourself to the priest, and offer for youri cleansing those things which Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] commanded, for a testimony unto them.
45But he went out, and began to publish [it] much, and to blaze (to make known; proclaim) abroad the matter, insomuch that Yeshua [God is Salvation] could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
