28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damSel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. 3O | And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. 31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and resta while ; for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32 And they departed into a deserto by ship privately. 33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him,

and ran afoot thither out of all ci-l

ties, and outwent them, and came together unto him. 34 Ti 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 manythings. 35 And 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 pennyworsh of bread, and give them to €at : 38 He saith unto them, How Whany loaves have ye? go and see.

And when they knew, they said, 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 hundreds, 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 InCIn. { 45 T 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 nighthe cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them, 49 But, when they saw him . walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out: 50 (For they all saw him, and were troubled:) And immediately he talked with them, and saith

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 Joor they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened. 53 || 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 him were made

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 me. - 7 Howbeit, in vain do they worship me, teaching for doćtrines the commandments of men. 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, Honourthy 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 say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be frce. 12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought 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 " And, when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand; - o 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

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

18 And he said unto them, Are ye sowithout understanding also :

oye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth 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 dei\eth the man.

21 For from within, out of

the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. 24's And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid. 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 26 (The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation;) and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the childrens' bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. - 28

And she answered, and said

unto him, Yes, Lord; yet the dogs

And they said, Seven. 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 on > and they did set them before the people. 7And 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 || And straightway, he entered into a ship with his disciles, and came into the parts of almanutha. 11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign : Verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. 13 And he left them, and, entering into the ship again, departed to the other side. 14 Now the disciples had for
