Mark 6

CEB 1 Jesus left that place and came to his hometown. His disciples followed him. NRS 1 He left that place and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. CEB 2 On the Sabbath, he began to teach in the synagogue. Many who heard him were surprised. "Where did this man get all this? What's this wisdom he's been given? What about the powerful acts accomplished through him? NRS 2 On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, "Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! CEB 3 Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't he Mary's son and the brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" They were repulsed by him and fell into sin. NRS 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him. CEB 4 Jesus said to them, "Prophets are honored everywhere except in their own hometowns, among their relatives, and in their own households." NRS 4 Then Jesus said to them, "Prophets are not without honor, except in their hometown, and among their own kin, and in their own house." CEB 5 He was unable to do any miracles there, except that he placed his hands on a few sick people and healed them. NRS 5 And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. CEB 6 He was appalled by their disbelief. Then Jesus traveled through the surrounding villages teaching. NRS 6 And he was amazed at their unbelief. Then he went about among the villages teaching. CEB 7 He called for the Twelve and sent them out in pairs. He gave them authority over unclean spirits. NRS 7 He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. CEB 8 He instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a walking stick—no bread, no bags, and no money in their belts. NRS 8 He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; CEB 9 He told them to wear sandals but not to put on two shirts. NRS 9 but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. CEB 10 He said, "Whatever house you enter, remain there until you leave that place. NRS 10 He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. CEB 11 If a place doesn't welcome you or listen to you, as you leave, shake the dust off your feet as a witness against them." NRS 11 If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them." CEB 12 So they went out and proclaimed that people should change their hearts and lives. NRS 12 So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. CEB 13 They cast out many demons, and they anointed many sick people with olive oil and healed them. NRS 13 They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them. CEB 14 Herod the king heard about these things, because the name of Jesus had become well-known. Some were saying, "John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and this is why miraculous powers are at work through him." NRS 14 King Herod heard of it, for Jesus' name had become known. Some were saying, "John the baptizer has been raised from the dead; and for this reason these powers are at work in him." CEB 15 Others were saying, "He is Elijah." Still others were saying, "He is a prophet like one of the ancient prophets." NRS 15 But others said, "It is Elijah." And others said, "It is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old." CEB 16 But when Herod heard these rumors, he said, "John, whom I beheaded, has been raised to life." NRS 16 But when Herod heard of it, he said, "John, whom I beheaded, has been raised." CEB 17 He said this because Herod himself had arranged to have John arrested and put in prison because of Herodias, the wife of Herod's brother Philip. Herod had married her, NRS 17 For Herod himself had sent men who arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, because Herod had married her. CEB 18 but John told Herod, "It's against the law for you to marry your brother's wife!" NRS 18 For John had been telling Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife." CEB 19 So Herodias had it in for John. She wanted to kill him, but she couldn't. NRS 19 And Herodias had a grudge against him, and wanted to kill him. But she could not, CEB 20 This was because Herod respected John. He regarded him as a righteous and holy person, so he protected him. John's words greatly confused Herod, yet he enjoyed listening to him. NRS 20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and he protected him. When he heard him, he was greatly perplexed; and yet he liked to listen to him. CEB 21 Finally, the time was right. It was on one of Herod's birthdays, when he had prepared a feast for his high-ranking officials and military officers and Galilee's leading residents. NRS 21 But an opportunity came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his courtiers and officers and for the leaders of Galilee. CEB 22 Herod's daughter Herodias came in and danced, thrilling Herod and his dinner guests. The king said to the young woman, "Ask me whatever you wish, and I will give it to you." NRS 22 When his daughter Herodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his guests; and the king said to the girl, "Ask me for whatever you wish, and I will give it." CEB 23 Then he swore to her, "Whatever you ask I will give to you, even as much as half of my kingdom." NRS 23 And he solemnly swore to her, "Whatever you ask me, I will give you, even half of my kingdom." CEB 24 She left the banquet hall and said to her mother, "What should I ask for?" "John the Baptist's head," Herodias replied. NRS 24 She went out and said to her mother, "What should I ask for?" She replied, "The head of John the baptizer." CEB 25 Hurrying back to the ruler, she made her request: "I want you to give me John the Baptist's head on a plate, right this minute." NRS 25 Immediately she rushed back to the king and requested, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter." CEB 26 Although the king was upset, because of his solemn pledge and his guests, he didn't want to refuse her. NRS 26 The king was deeply grieved; yet out of regard for his oaths and for the guests, he did not want to refuse her. CEB 27 So he ordered a guard to bring John's head. The guard went to the prison, cut off John's head, NRS 27 Immediately the king sent a soldier of the guard with orders to bring John's head. He went and beheaded him in the prison, CEB 28 brought his head on a plate, and gave it to the young woman, and she gave it to her mother. NRS 28 brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl. Then the girl gave it to her mother. CEB 29 When John's disciples heard what had happened, they came and took his dead body and laid it in a tomb. NRS 29 When his disciples heard about it, they came and took his body, and laid it in a tomb. CEB 30 The apostles returned to Jesus and told him everything they had done and taught. NRS 30 The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. CEB 31 Many people were coming and going, so there was no time to eat. He said to the apostles, "Come by yourselves to a secluded place and rest for a while." NRS 31 He said to them, "Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. CEB 32 They departed in a boat by themselves for a deserted place. NRS 32 And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves. CEB 33 Many people saw them leaving and recognized them, so they ran ahead from all the cities and arrived before them. NRS 33 Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they hurried there on foot from all the towns and arrived ahead of them. CEB 34 When Jesus arrived and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. Then he began to teach them many things. NRS 34 As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things. CEB 35 Late in the day, his disciples came to him and said, "This is an isolated place, and it's already late in the day. NRS 35 When it grew late, his disciples came to him and said, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is now very late; CEB 36 Send them away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy something to eat for themselves." NRS 36 send them away so that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy something for themselves to eat." CEB 37 He replied, "You give them something to eat." But they said to him, "Should we go off and buy bread worth almost eight months' pay and give it to them to eat?" NRS 37 But he answered them, "You give them something to eat." They said to him, "Are we to go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread, and give it to them to eat?" CEB 38 He said to them, "How much bread do you have? Take a look." After checking, they said, "Five loaves of bread and two fish." NRS 38 And he said to them, "How many loaves have you? Go and see." When they had found out, they said, "Five, and two fish." CEB 39 He directed the disciples to seat all the people in groups as though they were having a banquet on the green grass. NRS 39 Then he ordered them to get all the people to sit down in groups on the green grass. CEB 40 They sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. NRS 40 So they sat down in groups of hundreds and of fifties. CEB 41 He took the five loaves and the two fish, looked up to heaven, blessed them, broke the loaves into pieces, and gave them to his disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. NRS 41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before the people; and he divided the two fish among them all. CEB 42 Everyone ate until they were full. NRS 42 And all ate and were filled; CEB 43 They filled twelve baskets with the leftover pieces of bread and fish. NRS 43 and they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. CEB 44 About five thousand had eaten. NRS 44 Those who had eaten the loaves numbered five thousand men. CEB 45 Right then, Jesus made his disciples get into a boat and go ahead to the other side of the lake, toward Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. NRS 45 Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. CEB 46 After saying good-bye to them, Jesus went up onto a mountain to pray. NRS 46 After saying farewell to them, he went up on the mountain to pray. CEB 47 Evening came and the boat was in the middle of the lake, but he was alone on the land. NRS 47 When evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. CEB 48 He saw his disciples struggling. They were trying to row forward, but the wind was blowing against them. Very early in the morning, he came to them, walking on the lake. He intended to pass by them. NRS 48 When he saw that they were straining at the oars against an adverse wind, he came towards them early in the morning, walking on the sea. He intended to pass them by. CEB 49 When they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost and they screamed. NRS 49 But when they saw him walking on the sea, they thought it was a ghost and cried out; CEB 50 Seeing him was terrifying to all of them. Just then he spoke to them, "Be encouraged! It's me. Don't be afraid." NRS 50 for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid." CEB 51 He got into the boat, and the wind settled down. His disciples were so baffled they were beside themselves. NRS 51 Then he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, CEB 52 That's because they hadn't understood about the loaves. Their hearts had been changed so that they resisted God's ways. NRS 52 for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. CEB 53 When Jesus and his disciples had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret, anchored the boat, NRS 53 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored the boat. CEB 54 and came ashore. People immediately recognized Jesus NRS 54 When they got out of the boat, people at once recognized him, CEB 55 and ran around that whole region bringing sick people on their mats to wherever they heard he was. NRS 55 and rushed about that whole region and began to bring the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. CEB 56 Wherever he went—villages, cities, or farming communities—they would place the sick in the marketplaces and beg him to allow them to touch even the hem of his clothing. Everyone who touched him was healed. NRS 56 And wherever he went, into villages or cities or farms, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were healed.
