041:006:001
And he went out from thence,
and came into his own country;
and his disciples follow him.


041:006:002
And when the sabbath day was come,
he began to teach in the synagogue:
and many hearing him were astonished,
saying,
From whence hath this man these things?
and what wisdom is this which is given unto him,
that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?


041:006:003
Is not this the carpenter,
the son of Mary,
the brother of James,
and Joses,
and of Juda,
and Simon?
and are not his sisters here with us?
And they were offended at him.


041:006:004
But Jesus,
said unto them,
A prophet is not without honour,
but in his own country,
and among his own kin,
and in his own house.


041:006:005
And he could there do no mighty work,
save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk,
and healed them.


041:006:006
And he marvelled because of their unbelief.
And he went round about the villages,
teaching.


041:006:007
And he called unto him the twelve,
and began to send them forth by two and two;
and gave them power over unclean spirits;


041:006:008
And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey,
save a staff only;
no scrip,
no bread,
no money in their purse:


041:006:009
But be shod with sandals;
and not put on two coats.


041:006:010
And he said unto them,
In what place soever ye enter into an house,
there abide till ye depart from that place.


041:006:011
And whosoever shall not receive you,
nor hear you,
when ye depart thence,
shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them.
Verily I say unto you,
It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment,
than for that city.


041:006:012
And they went out,
and preached that men should repent.


041:006:013
And they cast out many devils,
and anointed with oil many that were sick,
and healed them.


041:006:014
And king Herod heard of him;
(for his name was spread abroad:)
and he said,
That John the Baptist was risen from the dead,
and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.


041:006:015
Others said,
That it is Elias.
And others said,
That it is a prophet,
or as one of the prophets.


041:006:016
But when Herod heard thereof,
he said,
It is John,
whom I beheaded:
he is risen from the dead.


041:006:017
For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John,
and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake,
his brother Philip's wife:
for he had married her.


041:006:018
For John had said unto Herod,
It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.


041:006:019
Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him,
and would have killed him;
but she could not:


041:006:020
For Herod feared John,
knowing that he was a just man and an holy,
and observed him;
and when he heard him,
he did many things,
and heard him gladly.


041:006:021
And when a convenient day was come,
that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords,
high captains,
and chief estates of Galilee;


041:006:022
And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in,
and danced,
and pleased Herod and them that sat with him,
the king said unto the damsel,
Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt,
and I will give it thee.


041:006:023
And he sware unto her,
Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me,
I will give it thee,
unto the half of my kingdom.


041:006:024
And she went forth,
and said unto her mother,
What shall I ask?
And she said,
The head of John the Baptist.


041:006:025
And she came in straightway with haste unto the king,
and asked,
saying,
I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.


041:006:026
And the king was exceeding sorry;
yet for his oath's sake,
and for their sakes which sat with him,
he would not reject her.


041:006:027
And immediately the king sent an executioner,
and commanded his head to be brought:
and he went and beheaded him in the prison,


041:006:028
And brought his head in a charger,
and gave it to the damsel:
and the damsel gave it to her mother.


041:006:029
And when his disciples heard of it,
they came and took up his corpse,
and laid it in a tomb.


041:006:030
And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus,
and told him all things,
both what they had done,
and what they had taught.


041:006:031
And he said unto them,
Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place,
and rest a while:
for there were many coming and going,
and they had no leisure so much as to eat.


041:006:032
And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.


041:006:033
And the people saw them departing,
and many knew him,
and ran afoot thither out of all cities,
and outwent them,
and came together unto him.


041:006:034
And Jesus,
when he came out,
saw much people,
and was moved with compassion toward them,
because they were as sheep not having a shepherd:
and he began to teach them many things.


041:006:035
And when the day was now far spent,
his disciples came unto him,
and said,
This is a desert place,
and now the time is far passed:


041:006:036
Send them away,
that they may go into the country round about,
and into the villages,
and buy themselves bread:
for they have nothing to eat.


041:006:037
He answered and said unto them,
Give ye them to eat.
And they say unto him,
Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread,
and give them to eat?


041:006:038
He saith unto them,
How many loaves have ye?
go and see.
And when they knew,
they say,
Five,
and two fishes.


041:006:039
And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.


041:006:040
And they sat down in ranks,
by hundreds,
and by fifties.


041:006:041
And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes,
he looked up to heaven,
and blessed,
and brake the loaves,
and gave them to his disciples to set before them;
and the two fishes divided he among them all.


041:006:042
And they did all eat,
and were filled.


041:006:043
And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments,
and of the fishes.


041:006:044
And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.


041:006:045
And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship,
and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida,
while he sent away the people.


041:006:046
And when he had sent them away,
he departed into a mountain to pray.


041:006:047
And when even was come,
the ship was in the midst of the sea,
and he alone on the land.


041:006:048
And he saw them toiling in rowing;
for the wind was contrary unto them:
and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them,
walking upon the sea,
and would have passed by them.


041:006:049
But when they saw him walking upon the sea,
they supposed it had been a spirit,
and cried out:


041:006:050
For they all saw him,
and were troubled.
And immediately he talked with them,
and saith unto them,
Be of good cheer:
it is I;
be not afraid.


041:006:051
And he went up unto them into the ship;
and the wind ceased:
and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure,
and wondered.


041:006:052
For they considered not the miracle of the loaves:
for their heart was hardened.


041:006:053
And when they had passed over,
they came into the land of Gennesaret,
and drew to the shore.


041:006:054
And when they were come out of the ship,
straightway they knew him,


041:006:055
And ran through that whole region round about,
and began to carry about in beds those that were sick,
where they heard he was.


041:006:056
And whithersoever he entered,
into villages,
or cities,
or country,
they laid the sick in the streets,
and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment:
and as many as touched him were made whole.
