3 Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of Herod's brother Philip. 3 Now Herod had arrested John and bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife,
4 That's because John told Herod, "It's against the law for you to marry her." 4 for John had been saying to him: "It is not lawful for you to have her."
5 Although Herod wanted to kill him, he feared the crowd because they thought John was a prophet. 5 Herod wanted to kill John, but he was afraid of the people, because they considered him a prophet.

8 At her mother's urging, the girl said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a plate." 8 Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist."
9 Although the king was upset, because of his solemn pledge and his guests he commanded that they give it to her. 9 The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he ordered that her request be granted
10 Then he had John beheaded in prison. 10 and had John beheaded in the prison.
11 They brought his head on a plate and gave it to the young woman, and she brought it to her mother. 11 His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who carried it to her mother.
12 But John's disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus what had happened. 12 John's disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus.
13 When Jesus heard about John, he withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by himself. When the crowds learned this, they followed him on foot from the cities. 13 When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns.
14 When Jesus arrived and saw a large crowd, he had compassion for them and healed those who were sick. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
15 That evening his disciples came and said to him, "This is an isolated place and it's getting late. Send the crowds away so they can go into the villages and buy food for themselves." 15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a remote place, and it's already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food."
16 But Jesus said to them, "There's no need to send them away. You give them something to eat." 16 Jesus replied, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
17 They replied, "We have nothing here except five loaves of bread and two fish." 17 "We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish," they answered.
18 He said, "Bring them here to me." 18 "Bring them here to me," he said.
19 He ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves of bread and the two fish, looked up to heaven, blessed them and broke the loaves apart and gave them to his disciples. Then the disciples gave them to the crowds. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
20 Everyone ate until they were full, and they filled twelve baskets with the leftovers. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
21 About five thousand men plus women and children had eaten. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
22 Right then, Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead to the other side of the lake while he dismissed the crowds. 22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd.
23 When he sent them away, he went up onto a mountain by himself to pray. Evening came and he was alone. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
24 Meanwhile, the boat, fighting a strong headwind, was being battered by the waves and was already far away from land. 24 but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Very early in the morning he came to his disciples, walking on the lake. 25 During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified and said, "It's a ghost!" They were so frightened they screamed. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear.
27 Just then Jesus spoke to them, "Be encouraged! It's me. Don't be afraid." 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
28 Peter replied, "Lord, if it's you, order me to come to you on the water." 28 "Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."
29 And Jesus said, "Come." Then Peter got out of the boat and was walking on the water toward Jesus. 29 "Come," he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
30 But when Peter saw the strong wind, he became frightened. As he began to sink, he shouted, "Lord, rescue me!" 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!"
31 Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him, saying, "You man of weak faith! Why did you begin to have doubts?" 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?"
32 When they got into the boat, the wind settled down. 32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.
33 Then those in the boat worshipped Jesus and said, "You must be God's Son!" 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."
34 When they had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret. 34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret.
35 When the people who lived in that place recognized him, they sent word throughout that whole region, and they brought to him everyone who was sick. 35 And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him
36 Then they begged him that they might just touch the edge of his clothes. Everyone who touched him was cured. 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed.
