1 And summoning the twelve, he gave them power and authority over all the demons and to cure diseases, 1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases,
2 and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
3 And he said to them, "Take along nothing for the journey--neither a staff, nor a traveler's bag, nor bread, nor money, nor to have two tunics apiece. 3 He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic.
4 And into whatever house you enter, stay there and depart from there. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
5 And [as for] all those who do not welcome you--[when you] depart from that town, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony against them." 5 If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them."
6 So they departed [and] went throughout the villages, proclaiming the good news and healing everywhere. 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.
7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was greatly perplexed, because it was said by some that John has been raised from the dead, 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed, because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead,
8 and by some that Elijah had appeared, and others that some prophet of ancient times had risen. 8 others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life.
9 And Herod said, "John I beheaded, but who is this about whom I hear such things?" And he was wanting to see him. 9 But Herod said, "I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?" And he tried to see him.
10 And [when they] returned, the apostles described to him all that they had done. And he took them along [and] withdrew privately to a town called Bethsaida. 10 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida,
11 But [when] the crowds found out, they followed him, and welcoming them, he began to speak to them about the kingdom of God, and he cured those who had need of healing. 11 but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.
12 Now the day began to be far spent, and the twelve came up [and] said to him, "Send away the crowd so that they can go into the surrounding villages and farms to obtain lodging and find provisions, because we are here in a desolate place. 12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here."
13 But he said to them, "You give them [something] to eat!" And they said, "{We have no} more than five loaves and two fish, unless perhaps we go [and] purchase food for all these people." 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we go and buy food for all this crowd."
14 (For there were about five thousand men.) So he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each." 14 (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
15 And they did so, and had [them] all sit down. 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down.
16 And taking the five loaves and the two fish, [and] looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them and began giving [them] to the disciples to set before the crowd. 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people.
17 And [they] all ate and were satisfied, and what was left over was picked up by them--twelve baskets of broken pieces. 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
18 And it happened that while he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, saying, "Who do the crowds say [that] I am?" 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?"
19 And they answered [and] said, "John the Baptist, but others, Elijah, and others, that one of the ancient prophets has risen." 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life."
20 And he said to them, "But who do you say [that] I am?" And Peter answered [and] said, "The Christ of God." 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God."
21 But he warned [and] commanded them to tell this to no one, 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone.
22 saying, "It is necessary [for] the Son of Man to suffer many [things] and to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and to be killed, and to be raised on the third day. 22 And he said, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life."
23 And he said to [them] all, "If anyone wants to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross every day and follow me. 23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life on account of me, this person will save it. 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.
25 For what is a person benefited [if he] gains the whole world but loses or forfeits himself? 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of this person when he comes in his glory and the [glory] of the Father and of the holy angels. 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
27 But I tell you truly, there are some of those standing here who will never experience death until they see the kingdom of God." 27 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."
28 Now it happened that about eight days after these words, he took along Peter and John and James [and] went up on the mountain to pray. 28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray.
29 And as he was praying, the appearance of his face became different, and his clothing [became] white, gleaming like lightning. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.
30 And behold, two men were talking with him, who were Moses and Elijah, 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 who appeared in glory [and] were speaking [about] his departure which he was about to fulfill in Jerusalem. 31 appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
32 Now Peter and those with him were {very sleepy}, but [when they] became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men who were standing with him. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
33 And it happened that as they were going away from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good [for] us to be here. And let us make three shelters, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah," not knowing what he was saying. 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.)
34 And [while] he was saying these [things], a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered into the cloud. 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
35 And a voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, [my] Chosen One. Listen to him!" 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
36 And after the voice had occurred, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen. 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves, and told no one at that time what they had seen.
37 Now it happened that on the next day, [when] they had come down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And behold, a man from the crowd cried out, saying, "Teacher, I beg you to look with concern on my son, because he is my only [son]! 38 A man in the crowd called out, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child.
39 And behold, a spirit seizes him and suddenly he screams, and it convulses him with foam and rarely withdraws from him, battering him severely. 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him.
40 And I begged your disciples that they would expel it, and they were not able [to do so]." 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not."
41 So Jesus answered [and] said, "O unbelieving and perverted generation! {How long} will I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here!" 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you and put up with you? Bring your son here."
42 And [while] he was still approaching, the demon threw him down and convulsed [him]. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.
43 And they were all astounded at the impressiveness of God. 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples,
44 "{You take these words to heart}, for the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men." 44 "Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men."
45 But they did not understand this statement, and it was concealed from them so that they could not understand it. And they were afraid to ask him about this statement. 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
46 And an argument developed among them as to who of them might be greatest. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 But Jesus, [because he] knew the thoughts of their hearts, took hold of a child and had him stand beside him 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
48 and said to them, "Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For the one who is least among you all--this one is great." 48 Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest."
49 And John answered [and] said, "Master, we saw someone expelling demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him, because he does not follow in company with us." 49 "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us."
50 But Jesus said to him, "Do not prevent [him], because whoever is not against you is for you." 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
51 Now it happened that when the days were approaching {for him to be taken up}, he set [his] face to go to Jerusalem. 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.
52 And he sent messengers before {him}, and they went [and] entered into a village of the Samaritans in order to prepare for him. 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him;
53 And they did not welcome him because {he was determined to go} to Jerusalem. 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
54 Now [when] the disciples James and John saw [it], they said, "Lord, do you want us to call fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them ?"
55 But he turned around [and] rebuked them, 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them,
56 and they proceeded to another village. 56 and they went to another village.
57 And [as] they were traveling on the road, someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go!" 57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."
58 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky [have] nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay [his] head." 58 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
59 And he said to another, "Follow me!" But he said, "Lord, first allow me to go [and] bury my father." 59 He said to another man, "Follow me." But the man replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father."
60 But he said to him, "Leave the dead to bury their own dead! But you go [and] proclaim the kingdom of God." 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
61 And another [person] also said, "I will follow you, Lord, but first allow me to say farewell to those in my house." 61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family."
62 But Jesus said, "No one who puts [his] hand on the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God!" 62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
