Matthew 14


14:1 At that time Herod the Tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
14:2 And said to his servants, This is John the Baptist; he hath
 risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do show forth
 themselves in him.
14:3 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put
 [him] in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's
 wife.
14:4 For John had said to him, It is not lawful for thee to have
 her.
14:5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the
 multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
14:6 But when Herod's birth-day was kept, the daughter of
 Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
14:7 Upon which he promised with an oath to give her whatever
 she would ask.
14:8 And she, being before instructed by her mother, said, Give
 me here the head of John the Baptist in a dish.
14:9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the sake of the
 oath, and of them who sat with him at table, he commanded [it]
 to be given [her].
14:10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
14:11 And his head was brought in a dish, and given to the
 damsel: and she brought [it] to her mother.
14:12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried
 it, and went and told Jesus.
14:13 When Jesus heard [of it], he departed thence in a boat,
 into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard [of
 it], they followed him on foot out of the cities.
14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was
 moved with compassion towards them, and he healed their sick.
14:15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him,
 saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send
 the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy
 themselves victuals.
14:16 But Jesus said to them, They need not depart; give ye them
 to eat.
14:17 And they say to him, We have here but five loaves, and two
 fishes.
14:18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass,
 and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to
 heaven, he blessed, and broke, and gave the loaves to [his]
 disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
14:20 And they all ate, and were satisfied: and they took up of
 the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men,
 besides women and children.
14:22 And immediately Jesus constrained his disciples to get
 into a boat, and to go before him to the other side, while he
 sent the multitudes away.
14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he ascended a
 mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was
 there alone.
14:24 But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with
 waves: for the wind was contrary.
14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them,
 walking on the sea.
14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they
 were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for
 fear.
14:27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, Be of good
 cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it is thou, bid
 me come to thee on the water.
14:29 And he said, Come. And when Peter had come down out of the
 boat, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and
 beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth [his] hand, and
 caught him, and said to him, O thou of little faith, Why didst
 thou doubt?
14:32 And when they had come into the boat, the wind ceased.
14:33 Then they that were in the boat came and worshiped him,
 saying, In truth thou art the son of God.
14:34 And when they had gone over, they came into the land of
 Gennesaret.
14:35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they
 sent out into all the surrounding country, and brought to him
 all that were diseased;
14:36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his
 garment: and as many as touched were restored to health.
