Matthew 14

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28]

14:1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

14:2 and said to his servants, This is John the baptist: *he* is risen from the dead, and because of this these works of power display their force in him.

14:3 For Herod had seized John, and had bound him and put him in prison on account of Herodias the wife of Philip his brother.

14:4 For John said to him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

14:5 And [while] desiring to kill him, he feared the crowd, because they held him for a prophet.

14:6 But when Herod's birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod;

14:7 whereupon he promised with oath to give her whatsoever she should ask.

14:8 But she, being set on by her mother, says, Give me here upon a dish the head of John the baptist.

14:9 And the king was grieved; but on account of the oaths, and those lying at table with [him], he commanded [it] to be given.

14:10 And he sent and beheaded John in the prison;

14:11 and his head was brought upon a dish, and was given to the damsel, and she carried [it] to her mother.

14:12 And his disciples came and took the body and buried it, and came and brought word to Jesus.

14:13 And Jesus, having heard it, went away thence by ship to a desert place apart. And the crowds having heard [of it] followed him on foot from the cities.

14:14 And going out he saw a great crowd, and was moved with compassion about them, and healed their infirm.

14:15 But when even was come, his disciples came to him saying, The place is desert, and [much of] the [day] time already gone by; dismiss the crowds, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.

14:16 But Jesus said to them, They have no need to go: give *ye* them to eat.

14:17 But they say to him, We have not here save five loaves and two fishes.

14:18 And he said, Bring them here to me.

14:19 And having commanded the crowds to recline upon the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed: and having broken the loaves, he gave [them] to the disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowds.

14:20 And all ate and were filled, and they took up what was over and above of fragments twelve hand-baskets full.

14:21 But those that had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

14:22 And immediately he compelled the disciples to go on board ship, and to go on before him to the other side, until he should have dismissed the crowds.

14:23 And having dismissed the crowds, he went up into the mountain apart to pray. And when even was come, he was alone there,

14:24 but the ship was already in the middle of the sea tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.

14:25 But in the fourth watch of the night he went off to them, walking on the sea.

14:26 And the disciples, seeing him walking on the sea, were troubled, saying, It is an apparition. And they cried out through fear.

14:27 But Jesus immediately spoke to them, saying, Take courage; it is *I*: be not afraid.

14:28 And Peter answering him said, Lord, if it be *thou*, command me to come to thee upon the waters.

14:29 And he said, Come. And Peter, having descended from the ship, walked upon the waters to go to Jesus.

14:30 But seeing the wind strong he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, Lord, save me.

14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?

14:32 And when they had gone up into the ship, the wind fell.

14:33 But those in the ship came and did homage to him, saying, Truly thou art God's Son.

14:34 And having crossed over they came to the land of Gennesaret.

14:35 And when the men of that place recognised him, they sent to that whole country around, and they brought to him all that were ill,

14:36 and besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment; and as many as touched were made thoroughly well.
