10 he sent and had John beheaded in the prison. 10 and had John beheaded in the prison.
11 The head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, who 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 His disciples came and took the body and buried it; then they went and told Jesus. 12 John's disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus.
13 Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. 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 he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
15 When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so 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 Jesus said to them, "They need not go 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 but five loaves and two fish." 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 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and 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 left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
