The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus, 1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the reports about Jesus,
2 and said to his servants, This is John the baptist: *he* is risen from the dead, and because of this these works of power display their force in him. 2 and he said to his attendants, "This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead! That is why miraculous powers are at work in him."
3 For Herod had seized John, and had bound him and put him in prison on account of Herodias the wife of Philip his brother. 3 Now Herod had arrested John and bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife,
4 For John said to him, It is not lawful for thee to have her. 4 for John had been saying to him: "It is not lawful for you to have her."
5 And [while] desiring to kill him, he feared the crowd, because they held him for a prophet. 5 Herod wanted to kill John, but he was afraid of the people, because they considered him a prophet.
6 But when Herod's birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod; 6 On Herod's birthday the daughter of Herodias danced for them and pleased Herod so much
7 whereupon he promised with oath to give her whatsoever she should ask. 7 that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked.
8 But she, being set on by her mother, says, Give me here upon a dish the head of John the baptist. 8 Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist."
9 And the king was grieved; but on account of the oaths, and those lying at table with [him], he commanded [it] to be given. 9 The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he ordered that her request be granted
10 And he sent and beheaded John in the prison; 10 and had John beheaded in the prison.
11 and his head was brought upon a dish, and was given to the damsel, and she carried [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 And his disciples came and took the body and buried it, and came and brought word to Jesus. 12 John's disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus.
13 And Jesus, having heard it, went away thence by ship to a desert place apart. And the crowds having heard [of it] 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 And going out he saw a great crowd, and was moved with compassion about them, and healed their infirm. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
15 But when even was come, his disciples came to him saying, The place is desert, and [much of] the [day] time already gone by; dismiss the crowds, that they may 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, They have no need to go: give *ye* them to eat. 16 Jesus replied, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
17 But they say to him, We have not here save five loaves and two fishes. 17 "We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish," they answered.
18 And he said, Bring them here to me. 18 "Bring them here to me," he said.
19 And having commanded the crowds to recline upon the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed: and having broken the loaves, he gave [them] to the disciples, and 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 And all ate and were filled, and they took up what was over and above of fragments twelve hand-baskets full. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
21 But those that had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
22 And immediately he compelled the disciples to go on board ship, and to go on before him to the other side, until he should have 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 And having dismissed the crowds, he went up into the mountain apart to pray. And when even was come, he was alone there, 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
24 but the ship was already in the middle of the sea tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. 24 but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 But in the fourth watch of the night he went off to them, walking on the sea. 25 During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26 And the disciples, seeing him walking on the sea, were troubled, saying, It is an apparition. And they cried out through fear. 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 But Jesus immediately spoke to them, saying, Take courage; it is *I*: be not afraid. 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
28 And Peter answering him said, Lord, if it be *thou*, command me to come to thee upon the waters. 28 "Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."
29 And he said, Come. And Peter, having descended from the ship, walked upon the waters to go to Jesus. 29 "Come," he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
30 But seeing the wind strong he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, Lord, save me. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!"
31 And immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt? 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?"
32 And when they had gone up into the ship, the wind fell. 32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.
33 But those in the ship came and did homage to him, saying, Truly thou art God's Son. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."
34 And having crossed over they came to the land of Gennesaret. 34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret.
35 And when the men of that place recognised him, they sent to that whole country around, and they brought to him all that were ill, 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 and besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment; and as many as touched were made thoroughly well. 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed.
