1: And he called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2: And he sent them forth to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3: And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staff, nor wallet, nor bread, nor money; neither have two coats. 4: And into whatsoever house ye enter, there abide, and thence depart. 5: And as many as receive you not, when ye depart from that city, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony against them. 6: And they departed, and went throughout the villages, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere. 7: Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done: and he was much perplexed, because that it was said by some, that John was risen from the dead; 8: and by some, that Elijah had appeared; and by others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. 9: And Herod said, John I beheaded: but who is this, about whom I hear such things? And he sought to see him. 10: And the apostles, when they were returned, declared unto him what things they had done. And he took them, and withdrew apart to a city called Bethsaida. 11: But the multitudes perceiving it followed him: and he welcomed them, and spake to them of the kingdom of God, and them that had need of healing he cured. 12: And the day began to wear away; and the twelve came, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages and country round about, and lodge, and get provisions: for we are here in a desert place. 13: But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy food for all this people. 14: For they were about five thousand men. And he said unto his disciples, Make them sit down in companies, about fifty each. 15: And they did so, and made them all sit down. 16: And he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake; and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. 17: And they ate, and were all filled: and there was taken up that which remained over to them of broken pieces, twelve baskets. 18: And it came to pass, as he was praying apart, the disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Who do the multitudes say that I am? 19: And they answering said, John the Baptist; but others [say], Elijah; and others, that one of the old prophets is risen again. 20: And he said unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 21: But he charged them, and commanded [them] to tell this to no man; 22: saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. 23: And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24: For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25: For what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and lose or forfeit his own self? 26: For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in his own glory, and [the glory] of the Father, and of the holy angels. 27: But I tell you of a truth, There are some of them that stand here, who shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. 28: And it came to pass about eight days after these sayings, that he took with him Peter and John and James, and went up into the mountain to pray. 29: And as he was praying, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment [became] white [and] dazzling. 30: And behold, there talked with him two men, who were Moses and Elijah; 31: who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32: Now Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. 33: And it came to pass, as they were parting from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah: not knowing what he said. 34: And while he said these things, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 35: And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my Son, my chosen: hear ye him. 36: And when the voice came, Jesus was found alone. And they held their peace, and told no man in those days any of the things which they had seen. 37: And it came to pass, on the next day, when they were come down from the mountain, a great multitude met him. 38: And behold, a man from the multitude cried, saying, Teacher, I beseech thee to look upon my son; for he is mine only child: 39: and behold, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth, and it hardly departeth from him, bruising him sorely. 40: And I besought thy disciples to cast it out; and they could not. 41: And Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and bear with you? bring hither thy son. 42: And as he was yet a coming, the demon dashed him down, and tare [him] grievously. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. 43: And they were all astonished at the majesty of God. But while all were marvelling at all the things which he did, he said unto his disciples, 44: Let these words sink into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered up into the hands of men. 45: But they understood not this saying, and it was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask him about this saying. 46: And there arose a reasoning among them, which of them was the greatest. 47: But when Jesus saw the reasoning of their heart, he took a little child, and set him by his side, 48: and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this little child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same is great. 49: And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. 50: But Jesus said unto him, Forbid [him] not: for he that is not against you is for you. 51: And it came to pass, when the days were well-nigh come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 52: and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53: And they did not receive him, because his face was [as though he were] going to Jerusalem. 54: And when his disciples James and John saw [this], they said, Lord, wilt thou that we bid fire to come down from heaven, and consume them? 55: But he turned, and rebuked them. 56: And they went to another village. 57: And as they went on the way, a certain man said unto him, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 58: And Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 59: And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60: But he said unto him, Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but go thou and publish abroad the kingdom of God. 61: And another also said, I will follow thee, Lord; but first suffer me to bid farewell to them that are at my house. 62: But Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
