fled, and told it in the city, and in the country: and they went out to see what it was that had been done : 15 and they came to Jesus; and saw him who had been possessed by the devil (who had had the Legion), sitting clothed, and with a sound mind; and they were terrified. 16 And they that saw it, told them how it had befallen him who was possessed by the devil, and also concerning the swine: 17 and they began to beseech him, to depart out of their borders. 18 And as he was entering the ship, he who had been possessed by the devil besought him, that he might be with him : 19 but he suffered him not; but saith to him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them what great things the Lord hath done for thee, and that he hath had compassion on thee: 20 and he went away, and began to publish in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him: and they all marvelled. 21 And when Jesus had passed over again in the ship to the other side, a great multitude gathered to him: and he was by the sea: 22 and one of the rulers of the synagogue came, by name

Jairus; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23 and besought him earnestly, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death : I beseech thee to come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed, and live: 24 and Jesus went with him; and a great multitude followed him, and pressed on him. 25 And a woman, who had had an issue of blood for twelve years, and had suffered much from many physicians; 26 and though she had spent all she had, was in nothing benefited, but rather grew worse; 27 having heard the things told of Jesus, came behind him in the crowd and touched his garment: 28 for she said, If I can but touch his garment, I shall be healed : 29 and the source of her blood was immediately dried up; and she felt in her body that she was cured of the scourge. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that power had gone out from him, turned about in the crowd, and said, Who touched my garments? 31 and his disciples said to him, Thou seest the multitude pressing thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32 and he looked round, to see her who had done this:

33 but the woman, knowing what had been done in her, came, fearing and trembling, and fell down before him, and told him all the truth : 34 and he said to her, Daughter, thy faith hath cured thee; go in peace, and be healed of thy scourge. 35 While he was yet speaking, they came from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? 36 but Jesus, hearing the word that was spoken, saith to the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37 And he suffered no one to follow him but Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And they come to the house of the ruler of the synagogue: and he seeth a tumult, and those who wept and wailed greatly: 39 and when he entered, he saith to them, Why make ye this noise, and weep? the maiden is not dead, but sleepeth : and they derided him. 40 And when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the maiden, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the maiden was lying: 41 and taking the maiden by the hand, he said to her,

Talitha cumi; which, being interpreted, is, Maiden, I bid thee arise : 42 and the maiden immediately arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years; and they were greatly amazed: 43 and he strictly charged them that no one should know it; and ordered that something should be given her to eat.

CHAPTER VI.

ND he went forth from thence, and came to his own country; and his disciples follow him. 2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and those who heard him were astonished, 3 saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what is this wisdom which is given to him, that such mighty works are wrought by his hands? 4 is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joses, and of Judah and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? and they believed not in him: 5 and Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honour, except in his own country, and among his own kindred, and in his own house:

6 and he could do no mighty work there, save that he laid his hands on a few that were infirm, and healed them: and he marvelled because of their unbelief. 7 And he went through all the villages around, teaching. 8 And he called to him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over the unclean spirits: 9 and he charged them, that they should take nothing for their journey, but one staff; no bread, no wallet, no money in their girdle: and be ye shod with sandals; and provide not tWO coats. 10 And he said to them, Wherever ye enter a house, abide there till ye depart from thence: 11 and whatever place will not receive you, nor listen to you; when ye depart from thence, shake off the dust that is under your feet, for a testimony against them. 12 And they went forth, and preached, “That all should “repent:” 13 and they cast out many devils; and anointed with oil many that were ill, and healed them. 14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad :) and he said, That John, who baptised, is risen from the dead, and therefore

these mighty powers work in him : 15 but others said, That he is Elijah; and others said, That he is a prophet, as one of the old prophets: 16 but when Herod heard them, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded : he is risen from the dead. 17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold on John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip; because he had married her: 18 for, John had said to Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife : 19 therefore, Herodias had resentment against him, and wished to kill him; but was not able : 20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and he protected him; and hesitated in many things, when he had heard him ; and listened to him gladly. 21 But when a convenient day came, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his nobles, and to the chief captains, and principal persons of Galilee; 22 and when the daughter of Herodias came in there and danced, she delighted Herod and them that sat with him : 23 and the king said to the damsel, Ask of me what thou wilt, and I will give it thee: 24 and he sware to her,Whatever thou shalt ask of me, I will give thee, to the half of my kingdom. 25 And she went out, and said to her mother, What shall I ask? and she said, The head of John the Baptist: 26 and immediately going in to the king, she asked, saying, I will that thou forthwith give me on a dish, the head of John the Baptist: 27 and though the king was exceeding sorry, yet, on account of his oath, and of those who sat with him, he would not refuse her: 28 and the king immediately sent a soldier of his guard, and commanded him to bring his head : 29 and he went and beheaded him in the prison; and brought his head on a dish, and gave it to the damsel; and the damsel gave it to her mother. 30 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

CHAPTER VII.

AN” the apostles came together again to Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught :

2 and he said to them, Come ye apart into a desert place, and rest a while : for those who came and went were many, and they had no leisure even to eat. 3 And they went away, in the ship, to a desert place apart: 4 but the multitude saw them departing, and many knew whither; and they ran thither together, by land, out of all the cities, and arrived before them : 5 and when he came out of the ship, he saw a great multitude ; and was moved with

compassion toward them, be- c. x. a.

cause they were as sheep that have no shepherd: and he began to teach them many things. 6 And when the day was already far spent, his disciples came to him, and said, This is a desert place, and it is now very late: 7 send them away, that they may go to the neighbouring farms and villages, and buy themselves something to eat: 8 but he answered and said to them, Give ye them to eat: and they say to him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? 9 and he saith to them, How many loaves have ye? go and see : and when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. 10 And he commanded them,

to make all sit down by companies on the green grass: 11 and they sat down in parties, by hundreds, and by fifties: 12 and taking the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed and brake the loaves, and gave them to the disciples to set before them; and he divided the two fishes among them all: 13 and they all eat, and were satisfied : 14 and they took up of the broken pieces and of the fishes, twelve baskets full : 15 and they that had eaten of the loaves, were five thousand illen. 16 And he straightway constrained his disciples to enter into the ship, and to go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the multitude: 17 and when he had dismissed them, he departed to the mountain to pray. 18 And when it was evening, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land : 19 and seeing them toiling in rowing, (for the wind was against them), about the fourth watch of the night he goeth towards them, walking on the sea, as if he would pass by them : 20 but when they saw him

walking on the sea, they thought it was a phantom, and cried out; for they all saw him, and were terrified : 21 and immediately he spoke to them, and saith to them, Be of good courage; it is I; be not afraid : 22 and he went up to them, into the ship, and the wind ceased : and they were greatly amazed in themselves: 23 for they thought not of the loaves, because their heart was hardened. 24 And passing over, they went to the land of Gennesaret, and came to the shore: 25 and when they landed from the ship, the people immediately knew him ; 26 and ran through all that neighbourhood, and began to bring from all sides, on beds, those that were ill, wherever they heard he was: 27 and into whatever villages, or cities, or countryplaces, he entered, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch even the border of his garment; and as many as touched it, were healed.
