of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

8 ONE of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

9 THERE is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

10 AND Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

II

AND Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 12 WHEN they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

13 THEREFORE they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

14 THEN those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

15 WHEN Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

JESUS WALKS UPON THE WATER.

Sea of GalileE. MATTHEW XIV: 22-33.

ND straightway Jesus constrained his disciples A to get into a ship, and to go before him

unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

22

AND when he had sent the multitudes away, he 23 went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

BUT the ship was now in the midst of the sea, 24 tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

AND in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went 25 unto them, walking on the sea.

AND when the disciples saw him walking on the 26 sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

BUT straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, 27 Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

AND Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be 28 thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. AND he said, Come. And when Peter was come 29 down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

BUT when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

AND immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

32 AND when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

33 THEN they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

ND when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

54 AND when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

55 AND ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

56 AND whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

HEALS THE DAUGHTER OF A SYROPHENICIAN.
PHENICIA. MATTHEW XV: 21-28.

HEN Jesus went thence, and departed into the 21
coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

TH

AND, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the 22 same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

BUT he answered her not a word. And his dis-23 ciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

BUT he answered and said, I am not sent but un- 24 to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

THEN came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, 25 help me.

BUT he answered and said, It is not meet to take 26 the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

AND she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat 27 of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

THEN Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, 28 great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

RESTORES ONE DEAF AND DUMB.

THE DECAPOLIS, OVER JORDAN. MARK VII: 31-37.

ND again, departing from the coasts of Tyre A and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee,

through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32 AND they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.

33 AND he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

34 AND looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

35 AND straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

36 AND he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;

37 AND were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
