NIV - Matthew 9:9-13

The Calling of Matthew

9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

O Chamado de Mateus

9 Saindo, Jesus viu um homem chamado Mateus, sentado na coletoria, e disse-lhe: “Siga-me”. Mateus levantou-se e o seguiu. 10 Estando Jesus em casa, foram comer com ele e seus discípulos muitos publicanos e “pecadores”. 11 Vendo isso, os fariseus perguntaram aos discípulos dele: “Por que o mestre de vocês come com publicanos e ‘pecadores’?” 12 Ouvindo isso, Jesus disse: “Não são os que têm saúde que precisam de médico, mas sim os doentes. 13 Vão aprender o que significa isto: ‘Desejo misericórdia, não sacrifícios’c. Pois eu não vim chamar justos, mas pecadores”. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
