Christ raiseth Jairus' daughter.

26 And had suffered many things of
many physicians, and had spent all that she
had, and was nothing bettered, but rather
grew worse,

27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in
the press behind, and touched his garment*

28 For she said. If I may touch but his
clothes, I shall be whole.

29 And straightway the fountain of her
blood was dried up ; and she felt in her body
that she was healed of that plague.

30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in
himself that s virtue had gone out of him,
turned him about in the press, and said.
Who touched my clothes?

31 And his disciples said unto him. Thou
seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest
thou. Who touched me ?

32 And he looked round about to see her
that had done this thing.

33 But the woman, fearing and trembling,
knowing what was done in her, came and
fell down before him, and told hini all the

34 And he said unto her. Daughter, ""thy
faith hath made thee. whole; go in peace, and
be whole of thy plague.

35 'While he yet spake, there came
from the ruler of the synagogue's house cer-
tain which said. Thy daughter is dead : why
troublest thou the Master any further?

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that
was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the
synagogue. Be not afraid, only believe.

37 And he suffered no man to follow him,
save Peter, and James, and John the brother
of James.

38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler
of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and
them that wept and wailed greatly.

39 And when he was come in, he saith
unto them, Why make ye this ado, and
weep ? the damsel is not dead, but ^ sleep-

40 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
where the damsel was lying.

41 And he took the damsel by the hand,
and said unto her, Talitha-cumi : which is,
being interpreted. Damsel, (I say unto thee)

42 And straightway the damsel arose, and
walked ; for she was of the age of twelve
years. And they were astonished with a
great astonishment.

43 And "he charged them straitly that
no man should know it ; and commanded
that something should be given her to eat.

into his own country ; and his disciples

2 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 by his
hands ?

Mary, "the brother of James, and Joses, and
of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters

work, save that he laid his hands upon a few
sick folk, and healed ihem.

6 And she marvelled because of their
unbelief. ""And he went round about the
villages teaching.

7 H'And he called 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 He shod with sandals; and not put
on two coats.

10 ^ And he said unto them. In what place
soever ye enter into anhouse, there abide till
ye depart from that place.

off the dust under your feet, for a testimony

shall be more tolerable for Sodom t and
Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for
that city.

12 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.

yourselves apart into a desert place, and
rest a while : for •= there were many coming
and going, and they had no leisure so much
as to eat.
'j' 32 "^ And they departed into a desert place
by ship privately.

33 And the people saw them departing,
and many knew him, and ran afoot thither
out of all cities, and outwent them, and came
together unto him.

34 ^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 teach
them many things.

35 sAnd when the day was now far
spent, his disciples came unto him, and
said. This is a desert place, and now the time
is far passed :

36 Send them away, that they may go
into the country round about, and into the
villages, and buy themselves bread : for they
have nothing to eat.

37 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, ajid give them to eat?

38 He saith unto them. How many loaves
have ye ? go and see. And when they knew,
they say, 'Five, and two fishes.

39 And he commanded them to make all
sit down by companies upon the green grass.

40 And they sat down in ranks, by hun-
dreds, and by fifties.

41 And when he had taken the five
loaves, and the two fishes, he looked up to
heaven, ■'and blessed, and brake the loaves,
and gave them to his disciples to set before
them; and the two fishes divided he among
them all.

42 And they did all eat, and were filled.

43 And they took up twelve baskets full
of the fragments, and of the fishes.

44 And they that did eat of the loaves,
were about five thousand men.

■^ 45 ' And straightway 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
departed into a mountain to pray.

47 ""And when even was come, the ship
was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on
the land.

48 And he saw them toiling in rowing ;
for the wind was contrary unto them : and
about the fourth watch of the night he
cometh unto them, walking upon the sea,
and "would have passed by them.

and cried out.

50 (For they all saw him, and were trou-
bled.) And immediately he talked with
them, and saith unto them. Be of good
cheer : it is I ; be not afraid.

51 And he Went up unto them into the
ship ; and the wind ceased : and they were
sore amazed in themselves beyond measure,
and wondered.

52 For " they considered not the miracle
of the loaves ; for their p heart was hardened.

53 1 And when they had passed over,
they came into the land of Gennesaret, and
drew to the shore.

54 And when they were come out of the
ship, straightway they knew him,

55 And ran through that whole region
round about, and began to carry about in
beds those that were sick, where they heard
he was.

56 And whithersoever he entered, into
villages, or cities, or country, they laid the
sick in the streets, and besought him that
■■ they might touch, if it were but the border
of his garment: and as many as touched Hhim,
were made whole.


I The Pharisees find fault at the disciples for eating
with unwashen hands. 8 They break the commandment
of God by the traditions ofinen. 14 Meat defileth not
the man. 24 He healeth the Syrophenician woman's
daughter of an unclean spirit, 31 and one that was
deaf, and stammered in his speech.

THEN »• came together unto him the
Pharisees, and certain of the scribes,
which came from Jerusalem.

2 And when they saw some of his disci-
ples eat bread with || defiled (that is to say,
with unwashen) hands, they found fault.

3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews,
except they wash thvir hands || oft, eat not,
holding the tradition of the elders.

4 And when they come from the market,
except they wash, they eat not. And many
other things there be, which they have re-
ceived to hold, as the washing of cups, and

II pots, and brazen vessels, and || tables.

5 ''Then the Pharisees and scribes asked
him. Why walk not thy disciples according
to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread
with unwashen hands?

6 He answered and said unto them, Well
hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites,
as it is written, "This people honoureth me
with their lips, but their heart is far from

7 Howbeit, in vain do they worship me,
teaching /or doctrines the commandments of


Meat defileih not the man.

8 For laying aside the commandment of
God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the
washing of pots and cups : and many other
such like things ye do.

9 And he said unto them. Full well ye
|] reject the commandment of God, that ye
may keep your own tradition.

10 For Moses said, ^ Honour thy father
and thy mother; and, ® Whoso curseth father
or mother, let him die the death :

11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his
father or mother. It is ''Corban, that is to
«ay, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be
profited by me ; he shall be free.

12 And ye suffer him no more to do aught
for his father or his mother ;

13 Making the word of God of none
effect through your tradition, which ye have
delivered : and many such like things do ye.

14 TT^And when he had called all the
people unto him, he said unto them. Heark-
en unto me every one of you, and under-

15 There is nothing from without a man,
that entering into him, can defile him : but
the things which come out of him, those are
they that defile the man.

16 ''If any man have ears to hear, let him

17 'And when he was entered into the
house from the people, his disciples asked
him concerning the parable.

18 And he saith unto them. Are ye so
without understanding also ? Do ye not per-
ceive, that whatsoever thing from without
cntereth into the man, it cannot defile him :

19 Because it entereth not into his heart,
but into the belly, and goeth out into the
draught, purging all meats ?

20 And he said. That which cometh out
of the man, that defileth the man.

21 ''For from within,- out of the heart of
men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, forni-
cations, murders,

22 Thefts, fcovetousness, wickedness, de-
ceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy,
pride, fooHshness ;

23 All these evil things come from within,
and defile the man.

into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and eii-
tered into an house, and would have no man
know it : but he could not be hid.

daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him,

leaven of Herod : 22 giveth a blind man his sight :
27 acknowledgeth that he is the Christ, who should suf-

IN those days ''the multitude being very
great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus
called his disciples unto him, and saith unto

2 I have compassion on the multitude, be-
cause they have now been with me three days,
and have nothing to eat:

3 And if I send them away fasting to their
own houses, they will faint by the way : for
divers of them came from far.

4 And his disciples answered him. From
whence can a man satisfy these men with
bread here in the wilderness?

5 '' And he asked them. How many loaves
have ye? And they said. Seven.


He feedeth four thousand.

6 And he commanded the people to sit
down on the ground : and he took the seven
loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave
to his disciples to set before tJiem ; and they
did set them before the people.

7 And they had a few small fishes : and
''he blessed, and commanded to set them also
before them.

8 So they did eat, and were filled: and
they took up of the broken meat that was left,
seven baskets.

9 And they that had eaten were about four
thousand: and he sent them away.

-10 IT And '^straightway he entered into a
ship with his disciples, and came into the
parts of Dalmanutha.

11 "And the Pharisees came forth, and
began to question with him, seeking of him

12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and
saith, Why doth this generation seek after
