faith hath made thee whole: go in peace, and 35 be whole of thy plague. While he yet spake, there came some from the ruler of the synagogue's house, who said, Thy daughter is dead; why troublest thou the Master any 36 further? As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the 37 synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. And

he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, 38 and James, and John the brother of James; and he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them 39 that wept and wailed greatly. And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, 40 but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn: but when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in 41 where the damsel was lying. And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, 42 Damsel (I say unto thee) arise. And immediately the damsel arose, and walked for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were 43 greatly astonished. And he charged them strictly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.




AND he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow

2 ed him. 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 3 by his hands? 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 4 in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick people, And he marvelled because

And he went round about

And he calleth unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; 8 and commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: 9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on 10 two coats. And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there 11 abide till ye depart from that place.

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 Gomorrah in the day of 12 judgment, than for that city. And they went

out, and preached that men should repent. 13 And they cast out many devils,* and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. 14 Now 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 15 mighty works are exhibited by him.


said, That it is Elijah. And others said, That '16 it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets. But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded he is risen from the dead. 17 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 18 had married her. For John had said unto

Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy 19 brother's wife. Therefore Herodias had a

quarrel against him, and would have killed 20 him; but she could not. 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 21 gladly. And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birth-day made a supper to his lords, captains, and chief officers 22 of Galilee; 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 23 thou wilt, and I will give it thee. And he

sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my 24 kingdom. And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? and she said, 25 The head of John the Baptist. And she came in immediately with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a bason the head of John the Baptist. 26 And the king was exceedingly sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which 27 sat with him, he would not reject her. And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought and he 28 went and beheaded him in the prison. And brought his head in a bason, and gave it to the damsel and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. 30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had 31 taught. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest awhile: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32 And they departed into a solitary place by ship 33 privately. And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran a-foot thither out of all cities, and outwent them and came 34 together unto him. 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 35 teach them many things. And when the day

was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now 36 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 : 37 for they have nothing to eat. He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred penny-worth of bread, and give them 38 to eat? He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they 39 knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. And he commanded them to make all sit down by 40 companies upon the green grass. And they

sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed God, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two 42 fishes he divided among them all. And they 43 did all eat and were filled. And they took up

twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of 44 the fishes. And they that did eat of the loaves 45 were about five thousand men. And im

mediately 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. 46 And when he had sent them away, he depart47 ed into a mountain to pray. And when even
