CEB 1 At that time Herod the ruler heard the news about Jesus. NRS 1 At that time Herod the ruler heard reports about Jesus; CEB 2 He said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist. He's been raised from the dead. This is why these miraculous powers are at work through him." NRS 2 and he said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist; he has been raised from the dead, and for this reason these powers are at work in him." CEB 3 Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of Herod's brother Philip. NRS 3 For Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, CEB 4 That's because John told Herod, "It's against the law for you to marry her." NRS 4 because John had been telling him, "It is not lawful for you to have her." CEB 5 Although Herod wanted to kill him, he feared the crowd because they thought John was a prophet. NRS 5 Though Herod wanted to put him to death, he feared the crowd, because they regarded him as a prophet. CEB 6 But at Herod's birthday party Herodias' daughter danced in front of the guests and thrilled Herod. NRS 6 But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company, and she pleased Herod CEB 7 Then he swore to give her anything she asked. NRS 7 so much that he promised on oath to grant her whatever she might ask. CEB 8 At her mother's urging, the girl said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a plate." NRS 8 Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter." CEB 9 Although the king was upset, because of his solemn pledge and his guests he commanded that they give it to her. NRS 9 The king was grieved, yet out of regard for his oaths and for the guests, he commanded it to be given; CEB 10 Then he had John beheaded in prison. NRS 10 he sent and had John beheaded in the prison. CEB 11 They brought his head on a plate and gave it to the young woman, and she brought it to her mother. NRS 11 The head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, who brought it to her mother. CEB 12 But John's disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus what had happened. NRS 12 His disciples came and took the body and buried it; then they went and told Jesus. CEB 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. NRS 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. CEB 14 When Jesus arrived and saw a large crowd, he had compassion for them and healed those who were sick. NRS 14 When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. CEB 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." NRS 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." CEB 16 But Jesus said to them, "There's no need to send them away. You give them something to eat." NRS 16 Jesus said to them, "They need not go away; you give them something to eat." CEB 17 They replied, "We have nothing here except five loaves of bread and two fish." NRS 17 They replied, "We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish." CEB 18 He said, "Bring them here to me." NRS 18 And he said, "Bring them here to me." CEB 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. NRS 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. CEB 20 Everyone ate until they were full, and they filled twelve baskets with the leftovers. NRS 20 And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. CEB 21 About five thousand men plus women and children had eaten. NRS 21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children. CEB 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. NRS 22 Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. CEB 23 When he sent them away, he went up onto a mountain by himself to pray. Evening came and he was alone. NRS 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, CEB 24 Meanwhile, the boat, fighting a strong headwind, was being battered by the waves and was already far away from land. NRS 24 but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. CEB 25 Very early in the morning he came to his disciples, walking on the lake. NRS 25 And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea. CEB 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. NRS 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out in fear. CEB 27 Just then Jesus spoke to them, "Be encouraged! It's me. Don't be afraid." NRS 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid." CEB 28 Peter replied, "Lord, if it's you, order me to come to you on the water." NRS 28 Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water." CEB 29 And Jesus said, "Come." Then Peter got out of the boat and was walking on the water toward Jesus. NRS 29 He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. CEB 30 But when Peter saw the strong wind, he became frightened. As he began to sink, he shouted, "Lord, rescue me!" NRS 30 But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" CEB 31 Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him, saying, "You man of weak faith! Why did you begin to have doubts?" NRS 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?" CEB 32 When they got into the boat, the wind settled down. NRS 32 When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. CEB 33 Then those in the boat worshipped Jesus and said, "You must be God's Son!" NRS 33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God." CEB 34 When they had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret. NRS 34 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. CEB 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. NRS 35 After the people of that place recognized him, they sent word throughout the region and brought all who were sick to him, CEB 36 Then they begged him that they might just touch the edge of his clothes. Everyone who touched him was cured. NRS 36 and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were healed.
