1 Herod's opinion of Christ. 3 Wherefore John the Baptist was beheaded. 13 Jesus departeth into a desert place: 15 where he feedeth five thousand men with five loaves and two fishes. 22 He walketh on the sea to his disciples: 34 and landing at Gennesaret, healeth the sick by the touch of the hem of his garment.
14:1 ¶ In that season, heard Herod the tetrarch, the fame of Jesus:
14:2 and he said unto his servantsThis, is John the Immerser,he hath arisen from the dead, for this cause, are the powers working mightily within him.
14:3 For, Herod, seizing John, had bound him, and, in prison, put him away,because of Herodias, the wife of Philip his brother;
14:4 for John had been saying to him, It is not allowed thee, to have her.
14:5 And desiring, to kill, him, he feared the multitude, because, as a prophet, they held him.
14:6 But, a birthday feast of Herod taking place, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod;
14:7 wherefore, with an oath, he promised to give her, whatsoever she should ask for herself;
14:8 and, she, being led on by her mother,Give me (saith she) here, upon a charger, the head of John the Immerser.
14:9 And the king, though grieved, yet, because of the oaths and the guests, ordered it to be given;
14:10 and sent and beheaded John in the prison.
14:11 And his head was brought upon a charger, and given unto the maiden, and she brought it to her mother.
14:12 And his disciples, going near, bare away the corpse, and buried him, and came and brought tidings unto Jesus.
14:13 ¶ And Jesus, hearing it, retired from thence in a boat, into a desert place, apart,and the multitudes, hearing of it, followed him on foot from the cities.
14:14 And, coming forth, he saw a great multitude,and was moved with compassion over them, and cured their sick.
14:15 And, evening, arriving, the disciples came unto him, sayingThe place is, a desert, and, the hour, hath already passed,dismiss the multitudes, that they may go away into the villages, and buy themselves food.
14:16 But, Jesus, said unto them, No need, have they to go away,give, ye, them to eat.
14:17 But, they, say unto himWe have nothing here, save five loaves and two fishes.
14:18 But, he, saidBring, them, to me, here.
14:19 And, giving orders that the multitudes should recline upon the grass,taking the five loaves and the two fishes,looking up into the heaven, he blessed; and, breaking, gave, the disciples, the loaves, and the disciples unto the multitude.
14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled,and they took up the remainder of the broken pieces, twelve baskets, full.
14:21 And, they who did eat, were about five thousand, men, besides women and children.
14:22 ¶ And [straightway] constrained he the disciples to enter into a boat, and be going before him unto the other side, while he dismissed the multitudes.
14:23 And, dismissing the multitudes, he went up into the mountain, apart, to pray,and when, evening, came, alone, was he, there.
14:24 Now, the boat, still many furlongs from the land, was holding off, being distressed by the waves,for, the wind, was, contrary.
14:25 And, in the fourth watch of the night, he came unto them, walking upon the sea.
14:26 And, the disciples, seeing him, upon the lake walking, were troubled,sayingIt is, a ghost; and, by reason of their fear, they cried out.
14:27 And, straightway, Jesus spake unto them, sayingTake courage! it is, I,be not afraid.
14:28 And, making answer, Peter said unto him,Lord! if it is, thou, bid me come unto thee, upon the waters.
14:29 And, he, saidCome! And, descending from the boat, Peter walked upon the waters, and came unto Jesus.
14:30 But, seeing the wind, he was affrighted, and, beginning to sink, cried out, sayingLord! save me!
14:31 And, straightway, Jesus, stretching forth his hand, laid hold upon him and saith unto himO little-of-faith! why didst thou doubt?
14:32 And, when they came up into the boat, the wind abated.
14:33 And, they in the boat, bowed down to him, sayingTruly, God's Son, thou art!
14:34 ¶ And, going across, they came up the land, into Gennesaret.
14:35 And, recognizing him, the men of that place, sent out into all that region, and they brought unto him all who were sick;
14:36 and were beseeching [him], that they might, only, touch the border of his mantle, and, as many as touched, were made quite well.
