Mark 6 ©
1 Christ is slighted by his own countrymen: 7 he sendeth out the twelve with power over unclean spirits. 14 The opinions of Herod and others concerning him. 16 John the Baptist imprisoned and beheaded by Herod at the instigation of Herodias. 30 The apostles return from their mission. 34 The miracle of five thousand fed with five loaves and two fishes. 45 Christ walketh on the sea to his disciples; 53 he landeth at Gennesaret, and healeth the sick who touched only the hem of his garment.
AND ahe went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.
And bwhen 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?
But Jesus said unto them, dA prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
¶hAnd he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by itwo and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
But be kshod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
And he said unto them, lIn what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
mAnd whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. n*Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom 1and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
qAnd 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.
rOthers said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
tFor 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.
And she came in straightway cwith haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me dby and by in a *charger the ehead of John the Baptist.
And himmediately the king sent 4an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
And brought his head in a *charger, and gave it to the *damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
And when his disciples heard of it, ithey came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
And he said unto them, kCome 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.
lAnd they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
nAnd 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 ohe began to teach them many things.
pAnd 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:
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.
He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
And she commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, the 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.
And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
And vstraightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side 5before unto wBethsaida, while he sent away the people.
yAnd when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.
For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, dBe of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
hAnd when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might jtouch if it were but the kborder of his garment: and as many as touched 6him were made whole.
