Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then calling together the twelve apostles, he gave them power and authority over all devils 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 staff, nor scrip, nor bread, nor money; neither have two coats. 3 He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic.
4 And whatsoever house you shall enter into, abide there and depart not from thence. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off even the dust of 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 going out, they went about 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 things that were done by him. And he was in a doubt, because it was said 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 By some that John was risen from the dead: but by other some, that Elias had appeared: and by others, that one of the old prophets was 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, when they were returned, told him all they had done. And taking them, he went aside into a desert place, apart, which belongeth to 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 Which when the people knew, they followed him: and he received them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God and healed them 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 decline. And the twelve came and said to him: Send away the multitude, that, going into the towns and villages round about, they may 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 you them to eat. And they said: We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; unless perhaps, we should go and buy food for all this multitude. 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 Now there 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 And taking the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven and blessed them: and he broke and distributed to his 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 did all eat and were filled. And there were 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 alone praying, his disciples also were with him: and he asked them, saying: Whom do the people 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 answered and said: John the Baptist; but some say Elias: and others say that one of the former 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 And he said to them: But whom do you say that I am? Simon 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 he strictly charging them, commanded they should tell 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 by the ancients and chief priests and scribes and be killed and the third day rise again. 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 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 whosoever will save his life shall lose it: for he that shall lose his life for my sake 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 advantaged, if he gain the whole world and lose himself and cast away himself? 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him the Son of man shall be ashamed, when he shall come in his majesty and 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 of a truth: There are some standing here that 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 words, that he took Peter and James and John and 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 whilst he prayed, the shape of his countenance was altered and his raiment became white and glittering. 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. And they were Moses and Elias, 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 Appearing in majesty. And they spoke of his decease that he should 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 they that were with him were heavy with sleep. And waking, 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 that, as they were departing from him, Peter saith 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 And as he spoke these things, there came a cloud and overshadowed them. And they were afraid when 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 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 whilst the voice was uttered Jesus was found alone. And they held their peace and told no man in those days any of these 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 the day following, when they came down from the mountain, there met him a great multitude. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And behold a man among the crowd cried out, saying: Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son, because he is my only one. 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 seizeth him, and he suddenly crieth out, and he throweth him down and teareth him, so that he foameth; and bruising him, he 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 desired 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 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 And as he was coming to him, the devil threw him down and tore him. 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 Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit and cured the boy and restored him to his father. 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 And all were astonished at the mighty power of God. But while all wondered at all the things he did, he said to his disciples: Lay you up in your hearts these words, for it shall come to pass that the Son of man shall 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 word: and it was hid from them, so that they perceived it not. And they were afraid to ask him concerning this word. 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 there entered a thought into them, which of them should be greater. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 But Jesus seeing the thoughts of their hearts, 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: Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me; and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me. For he that is the lesser among you all, he is the greater. 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 a certain man casting out devils in thy name: and we forbade 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 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 assumption were accomplishing, that 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 he sent messengers before his face: and going, they entered into a city of the Samaritans, 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 received him not, because his face was of one going 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, had seen this, they said: Lord, wilt thou that we command 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 And turning, he rebuked them, saying: you know not of what spirit you are. 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them,
56 The Son of man came not to destroy souls, but to save. And they went into another town. 56 and they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass, as they walked in the way, that a certain man said to him: 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 Jesus said to him: The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air 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 But he said to another: Follow me. And he said: Lord, suffer me first to go and to 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 And 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 said: I will follow thee, Lord; but let me first take my leave of them that 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 Jesus said to him: No man putting his hand to 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."
