1And he went out from thence,andcameinto his owncountry;andhisdisciplesfollowhim.2And when the sabbath day was come , he began to teachin the synagogue:andmanyhearing him were astonished , saying , From whence hath this man these things?andwhatwisdom is this which is given unto him,thatevensuch mighty works are wroughtbyhishands?3Isnotthis the carpenter, the son of Mary , the brother of James,andJoses,and of Juda,andSimon?andarenothissistersherewithus?And they were offendedaathim.4ButJesussaid unto them , A prophetisnot without honour,butin his owncountry,andamong his own kin,andin his ownhouse.5And he couldtheredono mighty work,save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
6And he marvelledbecause of theirunbelief.And he went round about the villages,teaching .
7And he called unto him the twelve,andbegan to sendthemforth by two and two;andgavethem power overuncleanspirits;8Andcommandedthemthat they should takenothingfor their journey,save a staffonly;noscrip,nobread,nomoneybin their purse:9But be shod with sandals;andnot put ontwocoats.10And he said unto them,In what place soeveryeenterinto an house,thereabidetillyedepart from that place.11Andwhosoevershallnotreceiveyou,norhearyou, when ye departthence, shake off the dustunderyourfeetfor a testimony against them.Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for SodomandcGomorrhain the day of judgment,than for thatcity.12And they went out , and preachedthat men should repent .
13And they cast outmanydevils,andanointed with oilmany that were sick,andhealed them.
14AndkingHerodheard of him; (for hisnamewas spread abroad:) and he said , ThatJohn the Baptist was risenfrom the dead,andthereforemightyworks do shew forth themselvesinhim.15Otherssaid , That it isElias.Andotherssaid , That it is a prophet,oras one of the prophets.16But when Herodheard thereof, he said , ItisJohn,whomIbeheaded : he is risenfrom the dead.17ForHerodhimself had sent forth and laid hold upon John,andboundhiminprisonforHerodias'sake,hisbrotherPhilip'swife:for he had marriedher.18ForJohn had said unto Herod , It isnotlawful for thee to havethybrother'swife.19ThereforeHerodias had a quarreld against him,andwould have killedhim;but she couldnot:20ForHerodfearedJohn,knowing that he was a justmanand an holy,andobservedhim;eand when he heardhim, he did many things,andheardhimgladly.21And when a convenientday was come , thatHerod on hisbirthdaymade a supper to hislords , high captains,andchief estates of Galilee;22And when the daughter of the saidHerodias came in , anddanced , andpleasedHerodand them that sat with him , the kingsaid unto the damsel,Ask of mewhatsoeverthouwilt , and I will give it thee.23And he sware unto her,Whatsoeverthou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee,unto the half of mykingdom.24And she went forth , and said unto hermother,What shall I ask ? And she said , The head of John the Baptist.25And she came instraightwaywithhasteunto the king, and asked , saying , I willthat thou giveme by and byin a charger the head of John the Baptist.26And the kingwas exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake,and for their sakes which sat with him , he wouldnotrejecther.27Andimmediately the kingsent an executioner, and commandedfhishead to be brought : and he went and beheadedhimin the prison,28Andbroughthisheadin a charger,andgaveit to the damsel:and the damselgaveit to hermother.29And when hisdisciplesheard of it, they cameand took uphiscorpse,andlaiditin a tomb.30And the apostles gathered themselves togetheruntoJesus,andtoldhim all things,bothwhat they had done , andwhat they had taught .
31And he said unto them,Comeyeyourselvesapartinto a desertplace,andrest a while:for there weremanycomingandgoing , and they had noleisure so much as to eat .
32And they departedinto a desertplace by shipprivately .
33And the peoplesawthemdeparting , andmanyknewhim,andranafootthither out ofallcities,andoutwentthem,and came togetheruntohim.34AndJesus, when he came out , sawmuchpeople,and was moved with compassiontowardthem,because they wereassheepnothaving a shepherd:and he began to teachthem many things.35And when the daywasnow far spent,hisdisciplescame unto him, and said , This is a desertplace,andnow the time is far passed:36Sendthemaway , that they may gointo the country round about,and into the villages, and buythemselvesbread:for they havenothingtoeat .
He answeredandsaid unto them,Giveyethem to eat .And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundredpennyworthg of bread,andgivethem to eat ?
38Hesaith unto them,How manyloaves have ye ? goandsee .And when they knew , they say , Five,andtwofishes.39And he commandedthem to makeall sit down by companiesupon the greengrass.40And they sat down in ranks , byhundreds,andbyfifties.41And when he had taken the fiveloavesand the twofishes, he looked uptoheaven, and blessed , andbrake the loaves,andgave them to hisdisciplesto set beforethem;and the twofishes divided he among them all.42And they didalleat , and were filled .
43And they took uptwelvebasketsfull of the fragments,andof the fishes.44And they that did eat of the loaveswereabout five thousandmen.45Andstraightway he constrainedhisdisciples to getinto the ship,and to goto the other sidebeforeuntohBethsaida,whilehe sent away the people.46And when he had sentthemaway , he departedinto a mountain to pray .
47And when even was come , the shipwasin the midst of the sea,andhealoneon the land.48And he sawthemtoilinginrowing ; for the windwascontrary unto them:andabout the fourthwatch of the night he comethuntothem,walkingupon the sea,andwould have passed bythem.49But when they sawhimwalkingupon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit,and cried out :
50For they allsawhim,and were troubled . Andimmediately he talkedwiththem,andsaith unto them,Be of good cheer : it isI;benotafraid .51And he went upuntotheminto the ship;and the windceased : and they were soreamazedinthemselvesbeyondmeasure,andwondered .
52For they considerednot the miracle of the loaves:fortheirheartwashardened .
53And when they had passed over , they cameinto the land of Gennesaret,and drew to the shore .
54And when they were come out of the ship,straightway they knewhim,55
And ran throughthatwhole region round about, and began to carry aboutinbeds those that weresick,where they heard he was .
56Andwhithersoeverheentered , intovillages,orcities,orcountry, they laid the sickin the streets,andbesoughthimthat they might touchif it were but the border of hisgarment:and as manyastouchedhimi were made whole .
