them hither to me. And he commanded the multi-19
tudes to 'sit down on the grass; and he took the
five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to
heaven, he blessed, and brake and gave the loaves
to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.
And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took 20
up that which remained over of the broken pieces,
twelve baskets full. And they that did eat were 21
about five thousand men, beside women and chil-

And straightway he constrained the disciples to 22 enter into the boat, and to go before him unto the other side, till he should send the multitudes away.

And after he had sent the multitudes away, he went 23 2 Some ancient au; up into the mountain apart to pray: and when even

now in the midst of the sea, distressed by the waves;
for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth 25
watch of the night he came unto them, walking
upon the sea. And when the disciples saw him 26
walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It
is an apparition; and they cried out for fear. But 27
straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of
good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter an- 28
swered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me
come unto thee upon the waters. And he said, 29

Come. And Peter went down from the boat, and read walked upon the waters, sto come to Jesus. But 30

when he saw the wind“, he was afraid; and beginauthorities add ning to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me.

And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, 31
and took hold of him, and saith unto him, O thou
of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? And 32
when they were gone up into the boat, the wind
ceased. And they that were in the boat worshipped 33
him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

And when they had crossed over, they came to 34 the land, unto Gennesaret. And when the men of 35 that place knew him, they sent into all that region round about, and brought unto him all that were sick; and they besought him that they might only 36 touch the border of his garment: and as many as touched were made whole.

Then there come to Jesus from Jerusalem Phari-15 sees and scribes, saying, Why do thy disciples trans- 2 gress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. And he answered 3

thou that the Pharisees were offended, when they 4 Gr., caused 13 heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every

And Peter answered and said unto him, 16 Declare unto us the parable. And he said, Are ye 17 also even yet without understanding? Perceive ye

not, that whatsoever goeth into the mouth passeth 18 into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But

the things which proceed out of the mouth come 19 forth out of the heart; and they defile the man. For

out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders,

adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, rail20 ings: these are the things which defile the man: but

to eat with unwashen hands defileth not the man. 21 And Jesus went out thence, and withdrew into the 22 parts of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaan

itish woman came out from those borders, and cried, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of Da

vid; my daughter is grievously vexed with a 6devil. 6 Gr. demon. 23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples

to the dogs. But she said, Yea, Lord: for even the 27
dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters'
table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O 28
woman, great is thy faith: be it done unto thee even
as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from
that hour.

And Jesus departed thence, and came nigh unto 29
the sea of Galilee; and he went up into the moun-
tain, and sat there. And there came unto him great 30
multitudes, having with them the lame, blind, dumb,
maimed, and many others, and they cast them down
at his feet; and he healed them: insomuch that the 31
multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb speak-
ing, the maimed whole, and the lame walking, and
the blind seeing: and they glorified the God of Is-

And Jesus called unto him his disciples, and said, 32 I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days and have nothing to eat: and I would not send them away fasting, lest haply they faint in the way. And the disciples 33 say unto him, Whence should we have so many loaves in a desert place, as to fill so great a multitude ? And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves 34 have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few small fishes. And he commanded the multitude to sit 35 down on the ground; and he took the seven loaves 36 and the fishes; and he gave thanks and brake, and gave to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes. And they did all eat, and were filled: and 37 they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, seven baskets full. And they that did eat 38 were four thousand men, beside women and children. And he sent away the multitudes, and en- 39 tered into the boat, and came into the borders of Magadan.

bade them not beware of the leaven of 'bread, but of

the teaching of the Fharisees and Sadducees. 13 Now when Jesus came into the parts of Cæsarea 4 Many

Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Who do men 14 say that the Son of man is? And they said, Some

say John the Baptist; some, Elijah: and others, Jer- Mark 15 emiah, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, 16 But who say ye that I am? And Simon Peter an

8 Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall never be unto 23 thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee

behind me, Satan: thou art a stumblingblock unto

me: for thou mindest not the things of God, but the 24 things of men. Then said Jesus unto his disciples,

gain the whole world, and forfeit his 'life? or what
shall a man give in exchange for his 'life? For the 27
Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father
with his angels; and then shall he render unto ev-
ery man according to his ’deeds. Verily I say unto 28
you, There be some of them that stand here, which
shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the Son
of man coming in his kingdom.

And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, 17
and James, and John his brother, and bringeth them
up into a high mountain apart: and he was trans- 2
figured before them: and his face did shine as the
sun, and his garments became white as the light.
And behold, there appeared unto them Moses and 3
Elijah talking with him. And Peter answered, and 4
said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if
thou wilt, I will make here three stabernacles; one
for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
While he was yet speaking, behold, a bright cloud 5
overshadowed them: and behold, a voice out of the
cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I
am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the dis- 6
ciples heard it, they felĩ on their face, and were sore
afraid. And Jesus came and touched them and said,
Arise, and be not afraid. And lifting up their eyes, 8
they saw no one, save Jesus only.

And as they were coming down from the moun- 9 tain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen from the dead. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why 10 then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? And he answered and said, Elijah indeed cometh, 11 and shall restore all things: but I say unto you, that 12 Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but did unto him whatsoever they listed. Even so shall the Son of man also suffer of them. Then under-13 stood the disciples that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

And when they were come to the multitude, there 14 came to him a man, kneeling to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is epileptic, 15 and suffereth grievously: for oft-times he falleth into the fire, and oft-times into the water. And I 16 brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. And Jesus answered and said, O faithless 17 and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him
