Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993



6:1And He went out from there and came to His native place. And His disciples followed Him.
6:2And a sabbath occurring, He began to teach in the synagogue. And hearing, many were amazed, saying, From where came these things to this one? And what is the wisdom given to him, that even such works of power come about through his hands?
6:3Is this one not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended in Him.
6:4And Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor, except in his native place, and among the relatives, and in his own house.
6:5And He could do no work of power there, except He performed healing on a few infirm ones, laying on His hands.
6:6And He marveled because of their unbelief. And He went around the villages in a circuit, teaching.
6:7And He called the Twelve near and began to send them out two by two. And He gave them authority over the unclean spirits,
6:8and charged them that they take nothing in the way, except only a staff; no bag, no bread, no copper in the belt;
6:9but having tied on sandals, and not putting on two tunics.
6:10And He said to them, Wherever you enter into a house, remain there until you go out from there.
6:11And as many as will not receive you, nor hear from you, having gone out from there, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony to them. Truly I say to you, it will be more bearable for Sodom or Gomorrah in Judgment Day than for that city.
6:12And going out, they proclaimed that men should repent.
6:13And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil and healed many sick ones.
6:14And Herod the king heard, for His name became publicly known. And he said, John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and because of this the works of power operate in him.
6:15Others said, He is Elijah; and others said, He is a prophet or as one of the prophets.
6:16But hearing, Herod said, This one is John whom I beheaded. He has risen from the dead.
6:17For having sent, Herod himself had seized John and bound him in the prison, because of Herodias the wife of his brother Philip, because he had married her.
6:18For John had said to Herod, It is not lawful for you to have the wife of your brother.
6:19And Herodias held it against him, and desired to kill him, but was not able.
6:20For Herod feared John, knowing him to be a holy and just man, and kept him safe. And hearing him, he did many things, and gladly heard from him.
6:21And a suitable day having come, when Herod made a dinner for his great ones on his birthday, also the chiliarchs, and the first ones of Galilee.
6:22And the daughter of Herodias herself entering, and dancing, she also pleased Herod and those reclining with him . The king said to the girl, Ask me whatever you wish, and I will give it to you.
6:23And he swore to her, Whatever you ask me, I will give to you, up to half of my kingdom.
6:24And going out, she said to her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
6:25And immediately going in with haste to the king, she asked, saying, I desire that at once you give to me the head of John the Baptist on a platter.
6:26And becoming deeply grieved, but because of the oaths and those reclining together, the king did not wish to reject her.
6:27And the king sending a guardsman at once, he ordered his head to be brought. And going, he beheaded him in the prison,
6:28and brought his head on a platter and gave it to the girl. And the girl gave it to her mother.
6:29And hearing, his disciples went and took his corpse and placed it in a tomb.
6:30And the apostles gathered to Jesus. And they told Him all things, even what they did and what they taught.
6:31And He said to them, You yourselves come apart into a deserted place, and rest a little. For those coming and those going were many, and they did not even have opportunity to eat.
6:32And they departed by boat into a deserted place apart.
6:33And the crowds saw them going, and many recognized Him. And they ran together on foot there, from all the cities, and came before them, and came together to Him.
6:34And going out, Jesus saw a large crowd, and had pity on them, because "they were as sheep having no shepherd." And He began to teach them many things. Num. 27:17; Eze. 34:5
6:35And it now becoming a late hour, drawing near to Him, the disciples said, The place is deserted, and it is now a late hour.
6:36Send them away, that going away to the surrounding fields and villages they may buy bread for themselves. For they do not have what they may eat.
6:37And answering, He said to them, You give them food to eat. And they said to Him, Going, should we buy two hundred denarii of bread and give them to eat?
6:38And He said to them, How many loaves do you have? Go and see. And knowing, they said, Five, and two fish.
6:39And He ordered them all to recline, group by group on the green grass.
6:40And they sat, group by group, by hundred and by fifty.
6:41And taking the five loaves and the two fish, looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and broke the loaves, and gave to His disciples, that they might set before them. And He divided the two fish to all.
6:42And all ate, and were satisfied.
6:43And they took up twelve hand baskets full of fragments, also from the fish.
6:44And those eating the loaves were about five thousand men.
6:45And at once He constrained His disciples to enter into the boat, and to go before to the other side, to Bethsaida, until He should dismiss the crowd.
6:46And taking leave of them, He went away to the mountain to pray.
6:47And it becoming evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and He alone on the land.
6:48And He saw them being distressed in the rowing, for the wind was contrary to them. And it was about the fourth watch of the night when He came toward them, walking on the sea. And He willed to go by them.
6:49But seeing Him walking on the sea, they thought it to be a ghost. And they cried out.
6:50For all saw Him, and were troubled. And immediately He spoke to them and said to them, Have courage. I AM! Do not fear.
6:51And He went up to them into the boat, and the wind was cut off. And they were amazed, exceedingly beyond measure within themselves, and marveled.
6:52For they did not understand the miracle of the loaves, for their hearts were hardened.
6:53And crossing over, they came into the land of Gennesaret and drew to shore.
6:54And they, coming out of the boat, at once knowing Him,
6:55they ran around all that neighborhood. And they began to carry about those having illness on cots to where they heard that He was.
6:56And wherever He went into villages or cities or fields, they laid the ailing ones in the markets and begged Him if only they may touch the fringe of His garment. And as many as touched Him were healed.
