he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.
2And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many
hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him,
that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters
here with us? And they were offended at him.
Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
5And he could there do no mighty work, save
that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
7And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two;
and gave them power over unclean spirits;
commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
9But be shod with sandals; and not put on
10And he said unto them, In what
place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under
your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day
of judgment, than for that city.
went out, and preached that men should repent.
they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
14And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That
John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one
of the prophets.
16But when Herod heard thereof,
he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.
17For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake,
his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.
John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.
19Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
20For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed
him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
21And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains,
and chief estates of Galilee;
22And when the
daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel,
Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
24And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said,
The head of John the Baptist.
25And she came
in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John
26And the king was exceeding
sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
27And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought:
and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
29And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid
it in a tomb.
30And the apostles gathered
themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
31And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest
a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
32And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
33And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out
of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having
a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
36Send them away, that they may go into the
country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
37He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall
we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?
38He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and
39And he commanded them to make
all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave
them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
42And they did all eat, and were filled.
43And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
44And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
45And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go
to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.
46And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.
47And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on
48And he saw them toiling in rowing;
for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and
would have passed by them.
49But when they
saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:
50For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them,
Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
52For they considered not the miracle of the
loaves: for their heart was hardened.
when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
55And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds
those that were sick, where they heard he was.
whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they
might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
