Matthew - Chapter 14
  • 1. At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus,
  • 2. and he said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist. He has been raised from the dead; that is why these miraculous powers are at work in him."
  • 3. For Herod had seized John and bound him and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife,
  • 4. because John had been saying to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."
  • 5. And though he wanted to put him to death, he feared the people, because they held him to be a prophet.
  • 6. But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company and pleased Herod,
  • 7. so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask.
  • 8. Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter."
  • 9. And the king was sorry, but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given.
  • 10. He sent and had John beheaded in the prison,
  • 11. and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.
  • 12. And his disciples came and took the body and buried it, and they went and told Jesus.
  • 13. Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a desolate place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns.
  • 14. When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
  • 15. Now when it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a desolate place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves."
  • 16. But Jesus said, {cf6 "They need not go away; you give them something to eat."}
  • 17. They said to him, "We have only five loaves here and two fish."
  • 18. And he said, {cf6 "Bring them here to me."}
  • 19. Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass, and taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.
  • 20. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over.
  • 21. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
  • 22. Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
  • 23. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
  • 24. but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them.
  • 25. And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.
  • 26. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, "It is a ghost!" and they cried out in fear.
  • 27. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, {cf6 "Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid."}
  • 28. And Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water."
  • 29. He said, {cf6 "Come."} So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.
  • 30. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me."
  • 31. Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, {cf6 "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"}
  • 32. And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
  • 33. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."
  • 34. And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret.
  • 35. And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and brought to him all who were sick
  • 36. and implored him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
