The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And having called together the twelve, he gave them power and authority over all demons, and to heal 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 sent them 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 nothing for the way, neither staff, nor scrip, nor bread, nor money; nor to have two body-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 whatsoever house ye enter, there abide and thence go forth. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
5 And as many as may not receive you, going forth from that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a witness 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 going forth they passed through the villages, announcing the glad tidings and healing everywhere. 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.
7 And Herod the tetrarch heard of all the things which were done [by him], and was in perplexity, because it was said by some that John was risen from among [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 Elias had appeared, and by others that one of the old 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 *I* have beheaded, but who is this of whom I hear such things? and he sought 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 having returned related to him whatever they had done. And he took them and withdrew apart into [a desert place of] a 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 But the crowds knowing [it] followed him; and he received them and spake to them of the kingdom of God, and cured those 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 But the day began to decline, and the twelve came and said to him, Send away the crowd that they may go into the villages around, and [into] the fields, and lodge and find victuals, for here we are 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 And he said to them, Give *ye them to eat. And they said, We have not more than five loaves and two fishes, unless *we* should go and buy food 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 in companies by fifties. 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 And taking the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up to heaven he blessed them, and broke and gave 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 filled; and there was taken up of what had remained over and above to them in fragments twelve hand-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 praying alone, his 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 But they answering said, John the baptist; but others, Elias; and others, that one of the old prophets has 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 And he said to them, But *ye*, who do ye say that I am? And Peter answering 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, earnestly charging them, he enjoined [them] to say this to no man, 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone.
22 saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. 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 one 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 whosoever shall desire to save his life shall lose it, but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, *he* 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 shall a man profit if he shall have gained the whole world, and have destroyed, or come under the penalty of the loss of himself? 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For whosoever shall have been ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed when he shall come in his glory, and [in that] 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 say unto you of a truth, There are some of those standing here who shall not taste death until they shall have seen 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 after these words, about eight days, that taking Peter and John and James he went up into 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 became different and his raiment white [and] effulgent. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.
30 And lo, two men talked with him, who were Moses and Elias, 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 who, appearing in glory, spoke of his departure which he was about to accomplish 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 But Peter and those with him were oppressed with sleep: but having fully awoke up they saw his glory, and the two men who 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 Elias: 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 But as he was saying these things, 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 was 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 as the voice was [heard] Jesus was found alone: and *they* kept silence, and told no one in those days any of the things 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 on the following day, when they came down from the mountain, a great crowd met him. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And lo, a man from the crowd cried out saying, Teacher, I beseech thee look upon my son, for he is mine 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 behold, a spirit takes him, and suddenly he cries out, and it tears him with foaming, and with difficulty departs from him after crushing 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 that they might 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 unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you and suffer you? Bring hither thy son. 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 But as he was yet coming, the demon tore him and dragged him all together. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child 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 all were astonished at the glorious greatness of God. And as all wondered at all the 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 Do *ye* let these words sink into your ears. For the Son of man is about to be delivered into men's hands. 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 should not perceive it. And they feared to ask him concerning this 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 And a reasoning came in amongst them, who should be [the] greatest of them. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 And Jesus, seeing the reasoning of their heart, having taken a little child set it by him, 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
48 and said to them, Whosoever shall receive this little child in my name receives me, and whosoever shall receive me receives him that sent me. For he who is the least among you all, *he* 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 answering said, Master, we saw some one casting out demons in thy name, and we forbad him, because he follows 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 you is for you. 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
51 And it came to pass when the days of his receiving up were fulfilled, that *he* stedfastly 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 his face. And having gone they entered into a village of the Samaritans that they might 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 [turned as] going to Jerusalem. 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
54 And his disciples James and John seeing [it] said, Lord, wilt thou that we speak [that] fire come down from heaven and consume them, as also Elias 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 turning he rebuked them [and said, Ye know not of what spirit ye are]. 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them,
56 And they went to another village. 56 and they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass as they went in the way, one said to him, I will follow thee wheresoever thou goest, Lord. 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, The foxes have holes and the birds of the heaven roosting-places, but the Son of man has not where he may 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, allow me to go first 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 Jesus said to him, Suffer the dead to bury their own dead, but do *thou* go and announce 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, I will follow thee, Lord, but first allow me to bid adieu to those 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 But Jesus said to him, No one having laid his hand on [the] plough 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."
