Luke 5 (ASV)
 Now it came to pass, while the multitude pressed upon him and heard the word of God, that he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret;
 and he saw two boats standing by the lake: but the fishermen had gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
 And he entered into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the multitudes out of the boat.
 And when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
 And Simon answered and said, Master, we toiled all night, and took nothing: but at thy word I will let down the nets.
 And when they had done this, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes; and their nets were breaking;
 and they beckoned unto their partners in the other boat, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
 But Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
 For he was amazed, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken;
 and so were also James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left all, and followed him.
 And it came to pass, while he was in one of the cities, behold, a man full of leprosy: and when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
 And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou made clean. And straightway the leprosy departed from him.
 And he charged him to tell no man: but go thy way, and show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
 But so much the more went abroad the report concerning him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed of their infirmities.
 But he withdrew himself in the deserts, and prayed.
 And it came to pass on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who were come out of every village of Galilee and Judaea and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was with him to heal.
 And behold, men bring on a bed a man that was palsied: and they sought to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
 And not finding by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his couch into the midst before Jesus.
 And seeing their faith, he said, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this that speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
 But Jesus perceiving their reasonings, answered and said unto them, Why reason ye in your hearts?
 Which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk?
 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority on earth to forgive sins (he said unto him that was palsied), I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go unto thy house.
 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his house, glorifying God.
 And amazement took hold on all, and they glorified God; and they were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to-day.
 And after these things he went forth, and beheld a publican, named Levi, sitting at the place of toll, and said unto him, Follow me.
 And he forsook all, and rose up and followed him.
 And Levi made him a great feast in his house: and there was a great multitude of publicans and of others that were sitting at meat with them.
 And the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with the publicans and sinners?
 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are in health have no need of a physician; but they that are sick.
 I am not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.
 And they said unto him, The disciples of John fast often, and make supplications; likewise also the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink.
 And Jesus said unto them, Can ye make the sons of the bride-chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
 But the days will come; and when the bride-groom shall be taken away from them, then will they fast in those days.
 And he spake also a parable unto them: No man rendeth a piece from a new garment and putteth it upon an old garment; else he will rend the new, and also the piece from the new will not agree with the old.
 And no man putteth new wine into old wine-skins; else the new wine will burst the skins and itself will be spilled, and the skins will perish.
 But new wine must be put into fresh wine-skins.
 And no man having drunk old wine desireth new; for he saith, The old is good.

Luke 5 (KJVS)
 And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that, as G1722 the people G3793 pressed upon G1945 (PresMidPasDepInf) him G846 to hear G191 (PresActInf) the word G3056 of God G2316, G2532 he G846 stood G2258 (ImpfInd) G2476 (PerfActPtc) by G3844 the lake G3041 of Gennesaret G1082,
 And G2532 saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) two G1417 ships G4143 standing G2476 (PerfActPtc) by G3844 the lake G3041: but G1161 the fishermen G231 were gone G576 (Aor2ActPtc) out of G575 them G846, and were washing G637 (AorActInd) [their] nets G1350.
 And G1161 he entered G1684 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 one G1520 of the ships G4143, which G3739 was G2258 (ImpfInd) Simon’s G4613, and prayed G2065 (AorActInd) him G846 that he would thrust out G1877 (Aor2ActInf) a little G3641 from G575 the land G1093. And G2532 he sat down G2523 (AorActPtc), and taught G1321 (ImpfActInd) the people G3793 out of G1537 the ship G4143.
 Now G1161 when G5613 he had left G3973 (AorMidInd) speaking G2980 (PresActPtc), he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 Simon G4613, Launch out G1877 (Aor2ActImpr) into G1519 the deep G899, and G2532 let down G5465 (AorActImpr) your G5216 nets G1350 for G1519 a draught G61.
 And G2532 Simon G4613 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Master G1988, we have toiled G2872 (AorActPtc) all G3650 G1223 the night G3571, and have taken G2983 (Aor2ActInd) nothing G3762: nevertheless G1161 at G1909 thy G4675 word G4487 I will let down G5465 (FutActInd) the net G1350.
 And G2532 when they had G4160 this G5124 done G4160 (AorActPtc), they inclosed G4788 (AorActInd) a great G4183 multitude G4128 of fishes G2486: and G1161 their G846 net G1350 brake G1284 (ImpfPasInd).
 And G2532 they beckoned G2656 (AorActInd) unto [their] partners G3353, which G3588 were in G1722 the other G2087 ship G4143, that they should come G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) and help G4815 (Aor2MidInf) them G846. And G2532 they came G2064 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 filled G4130 (AorActInd) both G297 the ships G4143, so G5620 that they G846 began to sink G1036 (PresPasInf).
 When G1161 Simon G4613 Peter G4074 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], he fell down at G4363 (Aor2ActInd) Jesus G2424’ knees G1119, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Depart G1831 (Aor2ActImpr) from G575 me G1700; for G3754 I am G1510 (PresInd) a sinful G268 man G435, O Lord G2962.
 For G1063 he G846 was astonished G4023 (Aor2ActInd) G2285, and G2532 all G3956 that were G4862 with him G846, at G1909 the draught G61 of the fishes G2486 which G3739 they had taken G4815 (Aor2ActInd):
 And G1161 so G3668 [was] also G2532 James G2385, and G2532 John G2491, the sons G5207 of Zebedee G2199, which G3739 were G2258 (ImpfInd) partners G2844 with Simon G4613. And G2532 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 Simon G4613, Fear G5399 (PresMidPasDepImpr) not G3361; from G575 henceforth G3568 thou shalt G2071 (FutInd) catch G2221 (PresActPtc) men G444.
 And G2532 when they had brought G2609 (Aor2ActPtc) their ships G4143 to G1909 land G1093, they forsook G863 (Aor2ActPtc) all G537, and followed G190 (AorActInd) him G846.
 And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), when he G846 was G1511 (PresInf) G1722 in G1722 a certain G3391 city G4172, G2532 behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr) a man G435 full G4134 of leprosy G3014: who G2532 seeing G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) Jesus G2424 fell G4098 (Aor2ActPtc) on G1909 [his] face G4383, and besought G1189 (AorPasInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Lord G2962, if G1437 thou wilt G2309 (PresActSubj), thou canst G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) make G2511 me G3165 clean G2511 (AorActInf).
 And G2532 he put forth G1614 (AorActPtc) [his] hand G5495, and touched G680 (AorMidDepInd) him G846, saying G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), I will G2309 (PresActInd): be thou clean G2511 (AorPasImpr). And G2532 immediately G2112 the leprosy G3014 departed G565 (Aor2ActInd) from G575 him G846.
 And G2532 he G846 charged G3853 (AorActInd) him G846 to tell G2036 (Aor2ActInf) no man G3367: but G235 go G565 (Aor2ActPtc), and shew G1166 (AorActImpr) thyself G4572 to the priest G2409, and G2532 offer G4374 (Aor2ActImpr) for G4012 thy G4675 cleansing G2512, according as G2531 Moses G3475 commanded G4367 (AorActInd), for G1519 a testimony G3142 unto them G846.
 But G1161 so much the more G3123 went there G1330 a fame G3056 abroad G1330 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) of G4012 him G846: and G2532 great G4183 multitudes G3793 came together G4905 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) to hear G191 (PresActInf), and G2532 to be healed G2323 (PresPasInf) by G5259 him G846 of G575 their G846 infirmities G769.
 And G1161 he withdrew G2258 (ImpfInd) G5298 (PresActPtc) himself G846 into G1722 the wilderness G2048, and G2532 prayed G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc).
 And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) on G1722 a certain G3391 day G2250, as G2532 he G846 was G2258 (ImpfInd) teaching G1321 (PresActPtc), that G2532 there were G2258 (ImpfInd) Pharisees G5330 and G2532 doctors of the law G3547 sitting by G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc), which G3739 were G2258 (ImpfInd) come G2064 (Perf2ActPtc) out of G1537 every G3956 town G2968 of Galilee G1056, and G2532 Judaea G2449, and G2532 Jerusalem G2419: and G2532 the power G1411 of the Lord G2962 was G2258 (ImpfInd) [present] to G1519 heal G2390 (PresMidPasDepInf) them G846.
 And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), men G435 brought G5342 (PresActPtc) in G1909 a bed G2825 a man G444 which G3739 was G2258 (ImpfInd) taken with a palsy G3886 (PerfPasPtc): and G2532 they sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) [means] to bring G1533 him G846 in G1533 (Aor2ActInf), and G2532 to lay G5087 (Aor2ActInf) [him] before G1799 him G846.
 And G2532 when they could G2147 not G3361 find G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) by G1223 what G4169 [way] they might bring G1533 him G846 in G1533 (Aor2ActSubj) because G1223 of the multitude G3793, they went G305 (Aor2ActPtc) upon G1909 the housetop G1430, and let G2524 him G846 down G2524 (AorActInd) through G1223 the tiling G2766 with G4862 [his] couch G2826 into G1519 the midst G3319 before G1715 Jesus G2424.
 And G2532 when he saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) their G846 faith G4102, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Man G444, thy G4675 sins G266 are forgiven G863 (PerfPasInd) thee G4671.
 And G2532 the scribes G1122 and G2532 the Pharisees G5330 began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to reason G1260 (PresMidPasDepInf), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Who G5101 is G2076 (PresInd) this G3778 which G3739 speaketh G2980 (PresActInd) blasphemies G988? Who G5101 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) forgive G863 (PresActInf) sins G266, but G1508 God G2316 alone G3441?
 But G1161 when Jesus G2424 perceived G1921 (Aor2ActPtc) their G846 thoughts G1261, he answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, What G5101 reason ye G1260 (PresMidPasDepInd) in G1722 your G5216 hearts G2588?
 Whether G5101 is G2076 (PresInd) easier G2123, to say G2036 (Aor2ActInf), Thy G4675 sins G266 be forgiven G863 (PerfPasInd) thee G4671; or G2228 to say G2036 (Aor2ActInf), Rise up G1453 (AorMidImpr) and G2532 walk G4043 (PresActImpr)?
 But G1161 that G2443 ye may know G1492 (PerfActSubj) that G3754 the Son G5207 of man G444 hath G2192 (PresActInd) power G1849 upon G1909 earth G1093 to forgive G863 (PresActInf) sins G266, (he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto the sick of the palsy G3886 (PerfPasPtc),) I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto thee G4671, Arise G1453 (AorMidImpr), and G2532 take up G142 (AorActPtc) thy G4675 couch G2826, and go G4198 (PresMidPasDepImpr) into G1519 thine G4675 house G3624.
 And G2532 immediately G3916 he rose up G450 (Aor2ActPtc) before G1799 them G846, and took up G142 (AorActPtc) that whereon G1909 G3739 he lay G2621 (ImpfMidPasDepInd), and departed G565 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 his own G846 house G3624, glorifying G1392 (PresActPtc) God G2316.
 And G2532 they were G2983 (Aor2ActInd) all G537 amazed G1611, and G2532 they glorified G1392 (ImpfActInd) God G2316, and G2532 were filled G4130 (AorPasInd) with fear G5401, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), G3754 We have seen G1492 (Aor2ActInd) strange things G3861 to day G4594.
 And G2532 after G3326 these things G5023 he went forth G1831 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 saw G2300 (AorMidDepInd) a publican G5057, named G3686 Levi G3018, sitting G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc) at G1909 the receipt of custom G5058: and G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Follow G190 (PresActImpr) me G3427.
 And G2532 he left G2641 (Aor2ActPtc) all G537, rose up G450 (Aor2ActPtc), and followed G190 (AorActInd) him G846.
 And G2532 Levi G3018 made G4160 (AorActInd) him G846 a great G3173 feast G1403 in G1722 his own G846 house G3614: and G2532 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) a great G4183 company G3793 of publicans G5057 and G2532 of others G243 that G3739 sat down G2258 (ImpfInd) G2621 (PresMidPasDepPtc) with G3326 them G846.
 But G2532 their G846 scribes G1122 and G2532 Pharisees G5330 murmured G1111 (ImpfActInd) against G4314 his G846 disciples G3101, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Why G1302 do ye eat G2068 (PresActInd) and G2532 drink G4095 (PresActInd) with G3326 publicans G5057 and G2532 sinners G268?
 And G2532 Jesus G2424 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, They that are whole G5198 (PresActPtc) need G5532 G2192 (PresActInd) not G3756 a physician G2395; but G235 they that are G2192 (PresActPtc) sick G2560.
 I came G2064 (Perf2ActInd) not G3756 to call G2564 (AorActInf) the righteous G1342, but G235 sinners G268 to G1519 repentance G3341.
 And G1161 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 him G846, Why G1302 do G3522 the disciples G3101 of John G2491 fast G3522 (PresActInd) often G4437, and G2532 make G4160 (PresMidInd) prayers G1162, and G2532 likewise G3668 [the disciples G3588] of the Pharisees G5330; but G1161 thine G4674 eat G2068 (PresActInd) and G2532 drink G4095 (PresActInd)?
 And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, G3361 Can ye G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) make G4160 (AorActInf) the children G5207 of the bridechamber G3567 fast G3522 (PresActInf), while G3739 G1722 the bridegroom G3566 is G2076 (PresInd) with G3326 them G846?
 But G1161 the days G2250 will come G2064 (FutMidDepInd), when G3752 G2532 the bridegroom G3566 shall be taken away G522 (AorPasSubj) from G575 them G846, and then G5119 shall they fast G3522 (FutActInd) in G1722 those G1565 days G2250.
 And G1161 he spake G3004 (ImpfActInd) also G2532 a parable G3850 unto G4314 them G846; G3754 No man G3762 putteth G1911 (PresActInd) a piece G1915 of a new G2537 garment G2440 upon G1909 an old G2440 G3820; if otherwise, then G1490 both G2532 the new G2537 maketh a rent G4977 (PresActInd), and G2532 the piece G1915 that was [taken] out of G575 the new G2537 agreeth G4856 (PresActInd) not G3756 with the old G3820.
 And G2532 no man G3762 putteth G906 (PresActInd) new G3501 wine G3631 into G1519 old G3820 bottles G779; else G1490 the new G3501 wine G3631 will burst G4486 (FutActInd) the bottles G779, and G2532 G846 be spilled G1632 (FutPasInd), and G2532 the bottles G779 shall perish G622 (FutMidInd).
 But G235 new G3501 wine G3631 must be put G992 into G1519 new G2537 bottles G779; and G2532 both G297 are preserved G4933 (PresPasInd).
 No man G3762 also G2532 having drunk G4095 (Aor2ActPtc) old G3820 [wine] straightway G2112 desireth G2309 (PresActInd) new G3501: for G1063 he saith G3004 (PresActInd), The old G3820 is G2076 (PresInd) better G5543.
Young’s Literal Translation
Luke 5 (YLT)
 And it came to pass, in the multitude pressing on him to hear the word of God, that he was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret,
 and he saw two boats standing beside the lake, and the fishers, having gone away from them, were washing the nets,
 and having entered into one of the boats, that was Simon’s, he asked him to put back a little from the land, and having sat down, was teaching the multitudes out of the boat.
 And when he left off speaking, he said unto Simon, ‘Put back to the deep, and let down your nets for a draught;’
 and Simon answering said to him, ‘Master, through the whole night, having laboured, we have taken nothing, but at thy saying I will let down the net.’
 And having done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net was breaking,
 and they beckoned to the partners, who are in the other boat, having come, to help them; and they came, and filled both the boats, so that they were sinking.
 And Simon Peter having seen, fell down at the knees of Jesus, saying, ‘Depart from me, because I am a sinful man, O lord;’
 for astonishment seized him, and all those with him, at the draught of the fishes that they took,
 and in like manner also James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon; and Jesus said unto Simon, ‘Fear not, henceforth thou shalt be catching men;’
 and they, having brought the boats upon the land, having left all, did follow him.
 And it came to pass, in his being in one of the cities, that lo, a man full of leprosy, and having seen Jesus, having fallen on his face, he besought him, saying, ‘Sir, if thou mayest will, thou art able to cleanse me;’
 and having stretched forth his hand, he touched him, having said, ‘I will; be thou cleansed;’ and immediately the leprosy went away from him.
 And he charged him to tell no one, ‘But, having gone away, shew thyself to the priest, and bring near for thy cleansing according as Moses directed, for a testimony to them;’
 but the more was the report going abroad concerning him, and great multitudes were coming together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities,
 and he was withdrawing himself in the desert places and was praying.
 And it came to pass, on one of the days, that he was teaching, and there were sitting by Pharisees and teachers of the Law, who were come out of every village of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was-to heal them.
 And lo, men bearing upon a couch a man, who hath been struck with palsy, and they were seeking to bring him in, and to place before him,
 and not having found by what way they may bring him in because of the multitude, having gone up on the house-top, through the tiles they let him down, with the little couch, into the midst before Jesus,
 and he having seen their faith, said to him, ‘Man, thy sins have been forgiven thee.’
 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, ‘Who is this that doth speak evil words? who is able to forgive sins, except God only?’
 And Jesus having known their reasonings, answering, said unto them, ‘What reason ye in your hearts?
 which is easier-to say, Thy sins have been forgiven thee? or to say, Arise, and walk?
 ‘And that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority upon the earth to forgive sins-(he said to the one struck with palsy)-I say to thee, Arise, and having taken up thy little couch, be going on to thy house.’
 And presently having risen before them, having taken up that on which he was lying, he went away to his house, glorifying God,
 and astonishment took all, and they were glorifying God, and were filled with fear, saying-‘We saw strange things to-day.’
 And after these things he went forth, and beheld a tax-gatherer, by name Levi, sitting at the tax-office, and said to him, ‘Be following me;’
 and he, having left all, having arisen, did follow him.
 And Levi made a great entertainment to him in his house, and there was a great multitude of tax-gatherers and others who were with them reclining (at meat),
 and the scribes and the Pharisees among them were murmuring at his disciples, saying, ‘Wherefore with tax-gatherers and sinners do ye eat and drink?’
 And Jesus answering said unto them, ‘They who are well have no need of a physician, but they that are ill:
 I came not to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.’
 And they said unto him, ‘Wherefore do the disciples of John fast often, and make supplications-in like manner also those of the Pharisees-but thine do eat and drink?’
 And he said unto them, ‘Are ye able to make the sons of the bride-chamber-in the bridegroom being with them-to fast?
 but days will come, and, when the bridegroom may be taken away from them, then they shall fast in those days.’
 And he spake also a simile unto them-‘No one a patch of new clothing doth put on old clothing, and if otherwise, the new also doth make a rent, and with the old the patch doth not agree, that is from the new.
 ‘And no one doth put new wine into old skins, and if otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and itself will be poured out, and the skins will be destroyed;
 but new wine into new skins is to be put, and both are preserved together;
 and no one having drunk old wine, doth immediately wish new, for he saith, The old is better.’
