14:1At that time Herod the Tetrarche heard of the fame of Iesus,
14:2And sayde vnto his seruaunts, This is that Iohn Baptist, hee is risen againe from the deade, and therefore great woorkes are wrought by him.
14:3For Herod had taken Iohn, and bounde him, and put him in prison for Herodias sake, his brother Philips wife.
14:4For Iohn saide vnto him, It is not lawfull for thee to haue her.
14:5And when hee woulde haue put him to death, hee feared the multitude, because they counted him as a Prophet.
14:6But when Herods birth day was kept, the daughter of Herodias daunced before them, and pleased Herod.
14:7Wherefore he promised with an othe, that he would giue her whatsoeuer she would aske.
14:8And shee being before instructed of her mother, sayde, Giue mee here Iohn Baptists head in a platter.
14:9And the King was sorie: neuerthelesse because of the othe, and them that sate with him at the table, he commanded it to be giuen her,
14:10And sent, and beheaded Iohn in the prison.
14:11And his head was brought in a platter, and giuen to the maide, and shee brought it vnto her mother.
14:12And his disciples came, and tooke vp the bodie, and buried it, and went, and tolde Iesus.
14:13And when Iesus heard it, hee departed thence by shippe into a desert place apart. And when the multitude had heard it, they followed him on foote out of the cities.
14:14And Iesus went foorth and sawe a great multitude, and was mooued with compassion toward them, and he healed their sicke.
14:15And when euen was come, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desart place, and the time is alreadie past: let the multitude depart, that they may goe into the townes, and bye them vitailes.
14:16But Iesus saide to them, They haue no neede to goe away: giue yee them to eate.
14:17Then saide they vnto him, Wee haue here but fiue loaues, and two fishes.
14:18And he saide, Bring them hither to me.
14:19And hee commanded the multitude to sit downe on the grasse, and tooke the fiue loaues and the two fishes, and looked vp to heauen and blessed, and brake, and gaue the loaues to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
14:20And they did all eate, and were sufficed, and they tooke vp of the fragments that remained, twelue baskets full.
14:21And they that had eaten, were about fiue thousande men, beside women and litle children.
14:22And straightway Iesus compelled his disciples to enter into a shippe, and to goe ouer before him, while he sent the multitude away.
14:23And assoone as hee had sent the multitude away, he went vp into a moutaine alone to pray: and when the euening was come, hee was there alone.
14:24And the shippe was nowe in the middes of the sea, and was tossed with waues: for it was a contrarie winde.
14:25And in the fourth watch of the night, Iesus went vnto them, walking on the sea.
14:26And when his disciples sawe him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit, and cried out for feare.
14:27But straight way Iesus spake vnto them, saying, Be of good comfort, It is I: be not afraide.
14:28Then Peter answered him, and saide, Master, if it be thou, bid me come vnto thee on the water.
14:29And he saide, Come. And when Peter was come downe out of the shippe, he walked on the water, to goe to Iesus.
14:30But when he sawe a mightie winde, he was afraide: and as he began to sinke, he cried, saying, Master, saue me.
14:31So immediatly Iesus stretched foorth his hande, and caught him, and saide to him, O thou of litle faith, wherefore diddest thou doubt?
14:32And assoone as they were come into the ship, the winde ceased.
14:33Then they that were in the ship, came and worshipped him, saying, Of a trueth thou art the Sonne of God.
14:34And when they were come ouer, they came into the land of Gennezaret.
14:35And when the men of that place knewe him, they sent out into all that countrey rounde about, and brought vnto him all that were sicke,
14:36And besought him, that they might touch the hemme of his garment onely: and as many as touched it, were made whole.

Geneva Bible 1560

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan. Because the language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous, most readers strongly preferred this version.

This version is significant because, it came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids, which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indices, as well as other included features, all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.
