Matthew, Chapter 10

10:1 And Jesus called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.
10:2 And he sent them forth to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
10:3 And he said to them, Take nothing for your+ journey, neither staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money; neither have two coats each.
10:4 And into whatever house you+ enter, there stay, and from there depart.
10:5 And as many as do not receive you+, when you+ depart from that city, shake off the dust from your+ feet for a testimony against them.
10:6 And they departed, and went throughout the villages, preaching the good news, and healing everywhere.
10:7 At that season Herod the tetrarch heard the report concerning Jesus,
10:8 and said to his [household] slaves, This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead; and therefore these powers work in him.
10:9 And the apostles gathered themselves together to Jesus; and they told him all things that they had done, and that they had taught.
10:10 And he says to them, You+ come yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest awhile. For there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
10:11 And they went away in the boat to a desert place apart.
10:12 And [the people] saw them going, and many knew [them], and they ran together there on foot from all the cities, and outwent them.
10:13 And he came forth and saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
10:14 And when evening came, the disciples came to him, saying, The place is desert, and the time is already past; send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves food.
10:15 But Jesus said to them, They have no need to go away; you+ give them to eat.
10:16 And they say to him, We have here but five loaves, and two fish.
10:17 And he said, Bring them here to me.
10:18 And having commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fish, [and] having looked up to heaven, he blessed. And having broken the loaves, he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples [gave] to the multitudes.
10:19 And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.
10:20 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
10:21 And right away he constrained the disciples to enter into the boat, and to go before him to the other side, until he should send the multitudes away.
10:22 And after he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into the mountain apart to pray: and when evening came, he was there alone.
10:23 But the boat was now a long distance away from the land, distressed by the waves; for the wind was contrary.
10:24 And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.
10:25 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a ghost; and they cried out for fear.
10:26 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; don't be afraid.
10:27 And when he got up into the boat, the wind ceased.
10:28 And when they had crossed over, they came to the land, to Gennesaret.
10:29 And when the men of that place knew him, they sent into all around that region, and brought to him all who were sick;
10:30 and they implored him that they might only touch the border of his garment: and as many as touched were made whole.
