“¶ And after these things hee went foorth, and sawe a Publicane, named Leui, sitting at the receit of custome: and hee said vnto him, Follow me.”
King James Version (KJV)
24. But that ye may know that the Sonne of man hath power vpon earth to forgiue sinnes (he said vnto the sicke of the palsie,) I say vnto thee, Arise, and take vp thy couch, and go into thine house. 25. And immediatly he rose vp before them, and tooke vp that whereon hee lay, and departed to his owne house, glorifying God. 26. And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with feare, saying, Wee haue seene strange things to day. 27. ¶ And after these things hee went foorth, and sawe a Publicane, named Leui, sitting at the receit of custome: and hee said vnto him, Follow me. 28. And he left all, rose vp, and followed him. 29. And Leui made him a great feast in his owne house: and there was a great company of Publicanes, and of others that sate downe with them. 30. But their Scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why doe ye eate and drinke with Publicanes and sinners?
