The Gospel of Mark 6

6And he went out from there and comes to his hometown, and his disciples are following him. 2And a Sabbath having come, he began to teach in the synagogue. And many of the ones hearing him were astonished, saying, “From where are these things, and what is this wisdom that has been given to this one, and these miracles happening by his hands? 3Is this not the carpenter, the son of Mary and a brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are his sisters not here with us?” And they were being caused to stumble on him. 4And Jesus was saying to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his house.” 5And he was not able to do any miracle there, except, having laid his hands on a few sick people, he healed them. 6And he was amazed because of their unbelief, and he was going around the villages teaching.

7And he calls the Twelve and began to send them out two by two, and he was giving them authority over the unclean spirits 8and commanded them that they should take nothing for the road except only a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their belts— 9but having put on sandals, and, “You may not wear two tunics.” 10And he was saying to them, “Whenever you enter into a house, remain there until you go out from there. 11And whatever place does not receive you nor listen to you, going out from there, shake off the dust that is under your feet for a testimony against them.” 12And having gone out, they proclaimed that people should repent. 13And they were casting out many demons and anointing many sick people with oil and healing them.

14And King Herod heard this, for his name became well known, and some were saying, “John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and because of this the powers work in him.” 15But others were saying, “He is Elijah.” But others were saying, “A prophet, like one of the prophets.” 16But Herod, having heard this, was saying, “John, whom I beheaded—he has been raised.” 17For Herod himself, having sent, seized John and bound him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, because he married her. 18For John was saying to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have the wife of your brother.” 19But Herodias was angry with him and was wanting to kill him, but she was not able, 20for Herod was fearing John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man, and he was keeping him safe, and having heard him, he was greatly perplexed, yet he was listening to him gladly. 21And an opportune day having come when Herod made his birthday dinner for his officials and for the commanders and for the leaders of Galilee, 22and his daughter Herodias having entered and having danced and having pleased Herod and the ones reclining to eat with him, the king said to the girl, “Ask me whatever you desire, and I will give it to you.” 23And he swore to her, “Whatever you ask of me, I will give it to you, up to half of my kingdom.” 24And having gone out, she said to her mother, “What should I ask?” And she said, “The head of John the Baptist.” 25And immediately, having entered in with haste to the king, she requested, saying, “I desire that you would give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.” 26And the king, having become deeply grieved, he did not want to refuse her because of his oaths and the ones reclining to eat with him, 27and the king, immediately having sent an executioner, commanded him to bring his head, and so having departed, he beheaded him in the prison. 28And he brought his head on a platter and gave it to the girl, and the girl gave it to her mother. 29And his disciples, having heard, came and took away his corpse and placed it in a tomb.

30And the apostles are gathered together with Jesus and reported to him all that they did and what they taught. 31And he says to them, “You yourselves, come away by yourself to a desolate place and rest a little while.” For the ones coming and the ones going were many, and they were not even having opportunity to eat. 32And they went away in the boat to a desolate place by themselves. 33But many saw them leaving and recognized them, and they ran there together on foot from all the cities, and they arrived before them. 34And having come out, he saw a large crowd, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep not having a shepherd, and he began to teach them many things. 35And the hour already having become late, his disciples, having come to him, were saying, “This place is desolate, and the hour is already late. 36Send them away so that, having gone away into the surrounding countryside and villages, they might buy something for themselves to eat.” 37But he, answering, said to them, “You give them to eat.” And they say to him, “Having gone away, might we buy 200 denarii of bread and give it to them to eat?” 38But he says to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go. See.” And having found out, they say, “Five, and two fish.” 39And he commanded them all to recline group by group on the green grass. 40And they reclined group by group according to hundreds and according to fifties. 41And having taken the five loaves and the two fish, having looked up to heaven, he blessed and broke the loaves into pieces and was giving them to his disciples so that they might set them before them, and he divided the two fish among them all. 42And they all ate and were satisfied. 43And they took up 12 full baskets of broken pieces, and from the fish. 44And the ones having eaten the loaves were 5,000 men.

45And immediately he compelled his disciples to get into the boat and to go ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he sends the crowd away. 46And having sent them away, he went to the mountain to pray. 47And evening having come, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48And having seen them being tormented as they rowed—for the wind was against them—and about the fourth watch of the night, he comes to them, walking on the sea, and he intended to pass by them. 49But they, having seen him walking on the sea, thought that he is a ghost, and they cried out, 50for they all saw him and were troubled. But immediately he spoke with them and says to them, “Take courage! It is I! Do not be afraid!” 51And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased, and they were very much amazed within themselves. 52For they did not understand about the loaves, but their heart had been hardened.

53And having crossed over to the land, they came to Gennesaret and anchored there. 54And when they had come out from the boat, immediately having recognized him, 55they ran throughout that whole region and began to carry on their mats the ones having sickness where they were hearing that he is. 56And wherever he was entering into villages or into cities or into the countryside, they were placing the sick in the marketplaces and were begging him so that at least they might touch the edge of his garment, and as many as touched it were being healed.
