Mark 6:30-56 Darby’s Translation

The Feeding of the Five Thousand

30  And the apostles are gathered together to Jesus. And they related to him all things, [both] what they had done and what they had taught. 31  And he said to them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place and rest a little. For those coming and those going were many, and they had not leisure even to eat. 32  And they went away apart into a desert place by ship. 33  And many saw them going, and recognised them, and ran together there on foot, out of all the cities, and got [there] before them. 34  And on leaving [the ship] [Jesus] saw a great crowd, and he was moved with compassion for them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things. 35  And when it was already late in the day, his disciples coming to him say, The place is desert, and it is already late in the day; 36  send them away that they may go into the country and villages around, and buy themselves bread, for they have not anything they can eat. 37  And he answering said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they say to him, Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give them to eat? 38  And he says to them, How many loaves have ye? Go [and] see. And when they knew they say, Five, and two fishes. 39  And he ordered them to make them all sit down by companies on the green grass. 40  And they sat down in ranks by hundreds and by fifties. 41  And having taken the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up to heaven, he blessed, and broke the loaves, and gave [them] to his disciples that they might set [them] before them. And the two fishes he divided among all. 42  And they all ate and were satisfied. 43  And they took up of fragments the fillings of twelve hand-baskets, and of the fishes. 44  And those that ate of the loaves were five thousand men.

Jesus Walks on the Sea

45  And immediately he compelled his disciples to go on board ship, and to go on before to the other side to Bethsaida, while he sends the crowd away. 46  And, having dismissed them, he departed into the mountain to pray. 47  And when evening was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone upon the land. 48  And seeing them labouring in rowing, for the wind was contrary to them, about the fourth watch of the night he comes to them walking on the sea, and would have passed them by. 49  But they, seeing him walking on the sea, thought that it was an apparition, and cried out. 50  For all saw him and were troubled. And immediately he spoke with them, and says to them, Be of good courage: it is I; be not afraid. 51  And he went up to them into the ship, and the wind fell. And they were exceedingly beyond measure astonished in themselves and wondered; 52  for they understood not through the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

Jesus Heals the Sick in Gennesaret

53  And having passed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and made the shore. 54  And on their coming out of the ship, immediately recognising him, 55  they ran through that whole country around, and began to carry about those that were ill on couches, where they heard that he was. 56  And wherever he entered into villages, or cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the market-places, and besought him that they might touch if it were only the hem of his garment; and as many as touched him were healed.
