1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all 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 to preach 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 nothing for [your] journey, neither staffs, nor bag, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats 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 ye enter, there abide, and thence depart. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
5 And whoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very 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 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where. 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.
7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said by some, that John had risen 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 by others, that one of the ancient prophets had risen again. 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 have I beheaded; but who is this of whom I hear such things? And he desired 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 the apostles, when they had returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place, belonging to the city 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 And the people, when they knew [it], followed him: and he received them, and spoke to them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that 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 And when the day began to decline, then came the twelve, and said to him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country around, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert 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, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy provisions for all this 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 they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. 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 made them all sit down. 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down.
16 Then he took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and broke, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. 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 ate, and were all satisfied: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them, twelve baskets. 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
18 And it came to pass, as he was in retirement praying, his disciples were with him; and he asked them, saying, Who say the people 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 They answering, said, John the Baptist; but some [say], Elijah; and others [say], that one of the ancient prophets is risen again. 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 He said to them, But who say ye that I am? Peter answering, said, Christ of God. 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God."
21 And he strictly charged them, and commanded [them] to tell no man that thing, 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone.
22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and be put to death, and be raised 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 any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, 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 will save his life, shall lose it: but whoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall 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 man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For whoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in that of his] 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 in truth, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till 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 And it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, he took Peter, and John, and James, and went up upon a 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 prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment [was] white [and] glistening. 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, there talked with him two men, who were Moses and Elijah. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 Who appeared in glory, and spoke of his decease which he should accomplish at 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 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood 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 came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah: not knowing what he said. 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 While he was thus speaking, there came a cloud and overshadowed them: and they feared 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 there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept [it] close, and told no man in those days any of those things which 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 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they had come down from the hill, many people met him. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee look upon my son: for he is my only child. 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 lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth, and bruising him, hardly departeth from him. 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 besought thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not. 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not."
41 And Jesus answering, said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 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 as he was yet coming, the demon threw him down, and tore [him]. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again 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 amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they were all wondering at all things which Jesus did, he said to his disciples, 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 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man will be delivered 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 understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him concerning that saying. 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 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 And Jesus perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
48 And said to them, Whoever shall receive this child in my name, receiveth me; and whoever shall receive me, receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be 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 one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not 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 And Jesus said to him, Forbid [him] not: for he that is not against us, is for us. 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly 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 sent messengers before his face: and they went and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready 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 receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
54 And when his disciples James and John saw [this], they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elijah did? 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, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them,
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save [them]. And they went to another village. 56 and they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass, that as they were going in the way, a certain [man] said to him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 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 holes, and birds of the air [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where 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, suffer me first 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 Jesus said to him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach 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 also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go [and] bid them farewell who are at 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 And Jesus said to him, No man having put his hand to the plow, and looking 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."
