§ 23Mt. 15, 29.Mt. 15, 30a.1And Jesus departed thence, and came to the side of the sea of Galilee, and went2 up into the mountain, and sat there. And there came unto him great multitudes, having with them lame, and blind, and dumb, and maimed, and many others, and3 they cast them at the feet of Jesus;Jo. 4, 45b.Mt. 15, 30b.Mt. 15, 31. for they had seen all the signs which he did in4 Jerusalem, when they were gathered at the feast. And he healed them all. And those multitudes marvelled when they saw dumb men speak, and maimed men healed, and lame men walk, and blind men see; and they praised the God of Israel.
5And Jesus called his disciples, and said unto them,Mt. 15, 32. I have compassion on this multitude, because of their continuing with me three days, having nothing to eat; and to send them away fasting I am not willing, lest they faint in the way,Mk. 8, 3b.Mt. 15, 33.Mt. 15, 34.Mt. 15, 35.Mt. 15, 36. some of them having6 come from far. His disciples said unto him, Whence have we in the desert7 bread wherewith to satisfy all this multitude? Jesus said unto them, How8 many loaves have ye? They said unto him, Seven,Arabic, p. 89 and a few small fishes. And he9 commanded the multitudes to sit down upon the ground; and he took those seven loaves and the fish, and blessed, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before10 them; and the disciples set before the multitudes. And they all ate,Mt. 15, 37. and were satisfied: and they took that which remained over of the fragments, seven basketfuls.11 And the people that are were four thousand men, besides the women and children.Mt. 15, 38.Mt. 15, 39.12 And when the multitudes departed, he went up into the boat, and came to the borders of Magada.1
Mt. 16, 1a.Mk. 8, 11b.13And the Pharisees and Sadducees came to him, and began to seek a discussion with him. And they asked him to shew them a sign from heaven, tempting him.14 And Jesus sighed within himself, and said,Mk. 8, 12a.Mt. 16, 4. What sign seeketh this evil and adulterous generation? It seeketh a sign, and it shall not be given a sign, except the sign15 of Jonah the prophet. Verily I say unto you,Mk. 8, 12b.Mk. 8, 13.Mk. 8, 14.Mk. 8, 15. This generation shall not be given a16 sign. And he left2 them, and went up into the boat, and went away to that side.
17And his disciples forgot to take with them bread, and there was not with them18 in the boat, not even3 one loaf. And Jesus charged them, and said, Take heed, and guard yourselves from the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees, and from the19 leaven of Herod.Mt. 16, 7.Mt. 16, 8.Mk. 8, 17b.Mk. 8, 18.Mk. 8, 19. And they reflected within themselves that they had taken with them20 no bread. And Jesus knew, and said unto them, Why4 think ye within yourselves, O ye of little faith, and are anxious, because ye have no bread? until now do ye not perceive,21 neither understand? is your heart yet hard? And have ye eyes, and yet see not?22 and have ye ears,Arabic, p. 90 and yet hear not? and do ye not remember when I brake those five loaves for five thousand? and how many baskets full of broken23 pieces took ye5 up? They said, Twelve. He said unto them,Mk. 8, 20. And the seven also for four thousand: how many baskets full of broken pieces took ye up? They24 said, Seven. He said unto them,Mk. 8, 21a.Mt. 16, 11. How have ye not understood that I spake not to you because of6 the bread, but that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees25 and Sadducees? Then they understood that he spake,Mt. 16, 12. not that they should beware of the leaven of the bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees, which he called leaven.
Mk. 8, 22.Mk. 8, 23.26And after that, he came to Bethsaida. And they brought to him a certain7 blind27man, and besought him that he would touch him. And he took the hand of that blind man, and led him out without the village, and spat in his eyes, and laid his28 hand on him,8 and asked him, What seest thou?Mk. 8, 24.Mk. 8, 25.Mk. 8, 26. And that blind man looked intently,29 and said unto him, I see men as trees walking. And he placed his hand30 again on his eyes; and they were restored,9 and he saw everything clearly. And he sent him to his house, and said, Do not enter even into the village, nor tell any man in the village.
Mk. 8, 27a.Mt. 16, 13b.Mt. 16, 14.31And Jesus went forth, and his disciples, to the villages of Cæsarea Philippi.32 And while he was going in the way, and his disciples alone,10 he asked his disciples,33 and said, What do men say of me that I am, the Son of man?11 They said unto him, Some say, John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the34, 35 prophets. He said unto them, And ye, what say ye that I am?Mt. 16, 15.Mt. 16, 16.Mt. 16, 17. Simon Cephas answered36 and said, Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon son of Jonah: flesh and37 blood hath not revealed it unto thee,Arabic, p. 91 but my Father which is in heaven.Mt. 16, 18. And I say unto thee also, that thou art Cephas,1 and on this rock will I build my church; and the38 gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.Mt. 16, 19. To thee will I give the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and39 whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.Mt. 16, 20. And he sternly charged his disciples, and warned them that they should not tell any man concerning40 him, that he was the Messiah.Mt. 16, 21a.Mk. 8, 31b. And henceforth began Jesus to shew to his disciples41 that he was determined2 to go to Jerusalem, and suffer much, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and of the scribes, and be killed, and on the42 third day rise. And he was speaking3 plainly. And Simon Cephas,Mk. 8, 32a.Mt. 16, 22.Mk. 8, 33a.Mt. 16, 23b. as one grieved43 for him, said, Far be thou, my Lord, from that. And he turned, and looked upon44 his disciples, and rebuked Simon, and said, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou art a stumblingblock unto me: for thou thinkest not of what pertains to God, but of what pertains to men.
Mk. 8, 34a.Lk. 9, 23b.Mk. 8, 35.Lk. 9, 25.Mk. 8, 37.Mk. 8, 38.45And Jesus called the multitudes with his disciples, and said unto them, Whosoever would come after me, let him deny himself, and take his cross every day, and46 come after me. And whosoever would save his life shall lose it; and whosoever47 loseth his life for my sake, and for the sake of my gospel, shall save it. What shall48 a man profit, if he gain all the world, and destroy4 his own life,5 or lose it? or what49 will a man give in ransom for his life? Arabic, p. 92 Whosoever shall deny me and my sayings in this sinful and adulterous generation, the Son of man also will50 deny him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with his holy angels.Mt. 16, 27. For the Son of man is about to6 come in the glory of his Father with his holy angels; and then shall he reward each man according to his works.
