13 *mWhen Jesus heard of it, nhe departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. 14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and owas moved with compassion toward them, and he phealed their sick. 15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and qthe time is now past; rsend the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; sgive ye them to eat. 17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. 18 He said, Bring them hither to me. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and sslooking up to heaven, the blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve ubaskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

22 wAnd straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up xinto a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the yfourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw him zwalking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is aa spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; bbe not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind ||boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, cO thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came and dworshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art ethe Son of God.

34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of fGennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; 36 And besought him that they might only touch gthe hem of his garment: and has many as touched iwere made perfectly whole.

15 Then acame to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress bthe tradition of cthe elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, dHonour thy father and mother: and, eHe that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is fa gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus ghave ye made the commandment of God gof none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, hThis people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for idoctrines the commandments of men.

10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 kNot that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. 12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, lEvery plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: mthey be blind leaders of the blind. And nif the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 Then answered oPeter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? 17 pDo not ye yet understand, that qwhatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 18 But rthose things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile sthe man. 19 For tout of the heart proceed uevil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat xwith unwashen hands defileth not a man.

21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of yTyre and Sidon. 22 And, behold, a woman of zCanaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, athou Son of David; my daughter is grievously bvexed with a devil. 23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, cSend her away; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, dI am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then came she and eworshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to fdogs. 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. 28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, ggreat is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. 29 hAnd Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto ithe sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were klame, blind, dumb, lmaimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the lmaimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and mthey glorified nthe God of Israel.

32 oThen Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, pI have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they qfaint in the way. 33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few rlittle fishes. 35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And he took the seven loaves and rthe fishes, and sgave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven tbaskets full. 38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

39 uAnd he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of xMagdala.

16 The aPharisees also with the aaSadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. He answered and said unto them, bWhen it is evening, ye say, It will be cfair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. dO ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? eA wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and fbeware of the gleaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. And they ggreasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, hO ye of little faith, why ggreason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? Do ye not yet understand, neither remember ithe five loaves of the five thousand, and how many kbaskets ye took up? 10 Neither lthe seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many mbaskets ye took up? 11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 12 Then understood they how that he bade them not fbeware of the leaven of bread, but of the gdoctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

13 nWhen Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art oJohn the Baptist: some, pElias; and others, qJeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, rthe Son of sthe living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, tBlessed art thou, uSimon Bar-jona: for xflesh and blood hath not yrevealed it unto thee, but zmy Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art aPeter, and bupon this rock I will build my church; and cthe gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee dthe keys of the kingdom of heaven: and ewhatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20 fThen charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

21 From that time forth began Jesus gto shew unto his disciples, how that hhe must go unto Jerusalem, and hisuffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and jbe raised again the third day. 22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 23 But he turned, and
