he saith unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while. For there were

many coming and going, and they had no leisure so 32 much as to eat. And they went away in the boat to 33 a desert place apart. And the people saw them going,

and villages round about, and buy themselves some37 what to eat. But he answered and said unto them,

he gave to the disciples to set before them; and the

did all eat, and were filled. And they took up 43
broken pieces, twelve basketfuls, and also of the
fishes. And they that ate the loaves were five 44

And straightway he constrained his disciples to 45 enter into the boat, and to go before him unto the other side to Bethsaida, while he himself sendeth the multitude away. And after he had taken leave 46 of them, he departed into the mountain to pray. And when even was come, the boat was in the 47 midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. And 48 seeing them distressed in rowing, for the wind was contrary unto them, about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking on the sea; and he would have passed by them: but they, 49 when they saw him walking on the sea, supposed that it was an apparition, and cried out: for they 50 all saw him, and were troubled. But he straight

And when they had 'crossed over, they came to 53 the land unto Gennesaret, and moored to the shore.

And wheresoever he entered, into villages, or into 56 cities, or into the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and besought him that they might

came and fell down at his feet. Now the woman was 26 a 'Greek, a Syrophænician by race.

And she besought him that he would cast forth the ?devil out of her daughter. And he said unto her, Let the chil- 27 dren first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. But she an- 28 swered and saith unto him, Yea, Lord: even the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs. And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; 29 the ?devil is gone out of thy daughter. And she 30 went away unto her house, and found the child laid upon the bed, and the 'devil gone out.

And again he went out from the borders of Tyre, 31 and came through Sidon unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the borders of Decapolis. And 32 they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to lay his hand upon him. And he took him aside from 33 the multitude privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat, and touched his tongue; and look - 34 ing up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And his ears were open-35 ed, and the bond of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. And he charged them that they should 36 tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it. And they 37 were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh even the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

In those days, when there was again a great multi- 8 tude, and they had nothing to eat, he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, I have compassion 2 on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and if I send 3 them away fasting to their home, they will faint in the way; and some of them are come from far. And 4 his disciples answered him, Whence shall one be able to fill these men with 4bread here in a desert place? And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And 5 they said, Seven. And he commandeth the multi- 6 tude to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and having given thanks, he brake, and gave to his disciples, to set before them; and they set them before the multitude. And they had a few 7 small fishes: and having blessed them, he commanded to set these also before them. And they did eat, 8 and were filled: and they took up, of broken pieces that remained over, seven baskets. And they were 9
