Mark 6

GW 1 Jesus left that place and went to his hometown. His disciples followed him. NIV 1 Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. GW 2 When the day of worship came, he began to teach in the synagogue. He amazed many who heard him. They asked, "Where did this man get these ideas? Who gave him this kind of wisdom and the ability to do such great miracles? NIV 2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? GW 3 Isn't this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" So they took offense at him. NIV 3 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. GW 4 But Jesus told them, "The only place a prophet isn't honored is in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his own house." NIV 4 Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” GW 5 He couldn't work any miracles there except to lay his hands on a few sick people and cure them. NIV 5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. GW 6 Their unbelief amazed him. Then Jesus went around to the villages and taught. NIV 6 He was amazed at their lack of faith. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. GW 7 He called the twelve apostles, sent them out two by two, and gave them authority over evil spirits. NIV 7 Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits. GW 8 He instructed them to take nothing along on the trip except a walking stick. They were not to take any food, a traveling bag, or money in their pockets. NIV 8 These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. GW 9 They could wear sandals but could not take along a change of clothes. NIV 9 Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. GW 10 He told them, "Whenever you go into a home, stay there until you're ready to leave that place. NIV 10 Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. GW 11 Wherever people don't welcome you or listen to you, leave and shake the dust from your feet as a warning to them." NIV 11 And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” GW 12 So the apostles went and told people that they should turn to God and change the way they think and act. NIV 12 They went out and preached that people should repent. GW 13 They also forced many demons out of people and poured oil on many who were sick to cure them. NIV 13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them. GW 14 King Herod heard about Jesus, because Jesus' name had become well-known. Some people were saying, "John the Baptizer has come back to life. That's why he has the power to perform these miracles." NIV 14 King Herod heard about this, for Jesus’ name had become well known. Some were saying, “John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.” GW 15 Others said, "He is Elijah." Still others said, "He is a prophet like one of the other prophets." NIV 15 Others said, “He is Elijah.” And still others claimed, “He is a prophet, like one of the prophets of long ago.” GW 16 But when Herod heard about it, he said, "I had John's head cut off, and he has come back to life!" NIV 16 But when Herod heard this, he said, “John, whom I beheaded, has been raised from the dead!” GW 17 Herod had sent men who had arrested John, tied him up, and put him in prison. Herod did that for Herodias, whom he had married. (She used to be his brother Philip's wife.) NIV 17 For Herod himself had given orders to have John arrested, and he had him bound and put in prison. He did this because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, whom he had married. GW 18 John had been telling Herod, "It's not right for you to be married to your brother's wife." NIV 18 For John had been saying to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” GW 19 So Herodias held a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she wasn't allowed to do it NIV 19 So Herodias nursed a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she was not able to, GW 20 because Herod was afraid of John. Herod knew that John was a fair and holy man, so he protected him. When he listened to John, he would become very disturbed, and yet he liked to listen to him. NIV 20 because Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled ; yet he liked to listen to him. GW 21 An opportunity finally came on Herod's birthday. Herod gave a dinner for his top officials, army officers, and the most important people of Galilee. NIV 21 Finally the opportune time came. On his birthday Herod gave a banquet for his high officials and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee. GW 22 His daughter, that is, Herodias' daughter, came in and danced. Herod and his guests were delighted with her. The king told the girl, "Ask me for anything you want, and I'll give it to you." NIV 22 When the daughter of Herodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his dinner guests. The king said to the girl, “Ask me for anything you want, and I’ll give it to you.” GW 23 He swore an oath to her: "I'll give you anything you ask for, up to half of my kingdom." NIV 23 And he promised her with an oath, “Whatever you ask I will give you, up to half my kingdom.” GW 24 So she went out and asked her mother, "What should I ask for?" Her mother said, "Ask for the head of John the Baptizer." NIV 24 She went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask for?” “The head of John the Baptist,” she answered. GW 25 So the girl hurried back to the king with her request. She said, "I want you to give me the head of John the Baptizer on a platter at once." NIV 25 At once the girl hurried in to the king with the request: “I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptist on a platter.” GW 26 The king deeply regretted his promise. But because of his oath and his guests, he didn't want to refuse her. NIV 26 The king was greatly distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he did not want to refuse her.

NIV 30 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. GW 31 So he said to them, "Let's go to a place where we can be alone to rest for a while." Many people were coming and going, and Jesus and the apostles didn't even have a chance to eat. NIV 31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” GW 32 So they went away in a boat to a place where they could be alone. NIV 32 So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. GW 33 But many people saw them leave and recognized them. The people ran from all the cities and arrived ahead of them. NIV 33 But many who saw them leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them.

GW 36 Send the people to the closest farms and villages to buy themselves something to eat."

NIV 37 But he answered, “You give them something to eat.”They said to him, “That would take more than half a year’s wages ! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?” GW 38 He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go and see." When they found out, they told him, "Five loaves of bread and two fish."

NIV 47 Later that night, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land. GW 48 Jesus saw that they were in a lot of trouble as they rowed, because they were going against the wind. Between three and six o'clock in the morning, he came to them. He was walking on the sea. He wanted to pass by them. NIV 48 He saw the disciples straining at the oars, because the wind was against them. Shortly before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to pass by them, GW 49 When they saw him walking on the sea, they thought, "It's a ghost!" and they began to scream.
