Yokhanan Markos 6 – יוחנן מרקוס ו


1And He went out from there and came to His own city; and His Talmidim followed Him.  2When Shabbat came, He began to teach in the Beit K’nesset, and many who heard him were astonished, and said, “From where did He receive all this, and what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that wonders like these are wrought by His hands?  3”Is He not the carpenter, the son of Miryam, and the brother of Ya’akov and Yosef and Yehudah and Shimon? And behold, are not his sisters here with us?” And they denounced Him.  4And Yeshua said to them, “There is no navi who is dishonored, except in his own city, and among his own brothers, and in his own house.”  5And He could not perform even a single miracle there, except that He laid his hand on a few sick people and healed them.  6And He wondered at their lack of Emunah.  And He traveled in the villages teaching.

7Then He called his twelve, and began to send them two by two; and He gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out.  8And He commanded them not to take anything for the journey, except a staff only; no bag, no bread, no copper money in their purses; 9but to wear sandals, and not to wear two shirts.  10And He said to them, “Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that place.  11And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you leave that place, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony  against them. Truly I say to you, it will be easier for S’dom and Amorah in Yom HaDin than for that city.”  12And they went out and declared that they should repent.  13And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and they were healed.

14And Herodus the king heard about Yeshua, for His Name was known to him; and he said, “Yokhanan HaMatbil has risen from the dead; this is why miracles are performed by Him.”  15Others said, “He is Eli-Yahu.” And yet others, “He is a navi, just like one of the Nevi’im.”  16But when Herodus heard it, he said, “It is Yokhanan, whom I beheaded; it is he who has risen from the dead.”  17For this same Herodus had sent out and arrested Yokhanan and cast him into prison, because of Herodias, wife of his brother Filipos, whom he had married.  18For Yokhanan had said to Herodus, “It is not permitted for you to marry your brother’s wife.”  19But Herodias was bitter towards him, and wanted to kill him; but she could not.  20For Herodus was afraid of Yokhanan, because he knew that he was a righteous and consecrated man, and he guarded him; and he heard that he was doing a great many things, and he heard him gladly.  21Then came a state occasion, when Herodus on his birthday gave a banquet to his officials and captains and the leading men of the Galil.  22And the daughter of Herodias entered and danced, and she pleased Herodus and the guests who were with him; and the king said to the young woman, “Ask me whatever you wish, and I will give it to you.”  23And he swore to her, “Whatever you ask me, I will give you, as much as half of my kingdom.”  24She went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask of him?”  She said to her, “The head of Yokhanan HaMatbil.”  25And immediately she entered with determination to the king, and said to him, “I do wish in this very hour that you might give me on a tray the head of Yokhanan HaMatbil.”  26And the king was exceedingly sorry; but because of the oaths and because of the guests, he did not wish to refuse her.  27So the king immediately sent the executioner and commanded to bring the head of Yokhanan. And he went and beheaded Yokhanan in the prison, 28and brought the head on a tray and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother.  29And when His Talmidim heard of it, they came and took up his body and buried it in a grave.

30And the Shlikhim gathered together to Yeshua, and told Him everything they had done and what they had taught.  31And He said to them, “Come, let us go to the wilderness all alone and rest awhile.” For there were many coming and going, and they had no chance even to eat.  32So they went away in a boat to a desert place by themselves.  33And many people saw them when they were leaving and they knew them, and from all the cities they hurried by land and reached the place ahead of Him.  34And when Yeshua went out, He saw large crowds, and He had mercy on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them a great many things.  35And when it was getting late, His Talmidim came up to Him and said to Him, “This is a desert place, and it is getting late; 36dismiss them so that they may go away to the farms and villages around us and buy bread for themselves; for they have nothing to eat.  37He said to them, “You give them to eat.” They said to Him, “Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give it to them to eat?”  38He said to them, “Go and see how many loaves of bread you have here.” And when they found out, they said to Him, “Five loaves of bread and two fish.”  39And He commanded them to make everyone sit down in groups on the grass.  40So they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties.  41Then He took the five loaves of bread and the two fish, and He looked up to Heaven and blessed and broke the loaves of bread, and gave them to His Talmidim to place before them; and they divided the two fish among them all.  42And they all ate and were satisfied.  43And they took up the fragments of bread, twelve full baskets, and also of the fish.  44And those who ate the bread were five thousand men.

45And immediately He urged His Talmidim to go up into the boat, and go in advance of Him to the port at Beit Tza’ida, while He dismissed the people. 46And when He had dismissed them, He went up to the mountain to pray. 47When evening came, the boat was in the midst of the sea and He was alone on the land. 48And He saw them struggling as they were rowing, for the wind was against them; and in the fourth watch of the night, Yeshua came to them, walking on the water, and He wanted to pass by them.  49But when they saw Him walking on the water, they thought it was an appearance of a conjuring, and they cried out; 50for they all saw Him and were frightened. And immediately He spoke to them, saying, “Have courage, it is I, do not be afraid.”  51And He got into the boat with them and the wind quieted down; and they marveled exceedingly, and were astonished.  52Neither did they understand the miracle of the loaves of bread, because their hearts were confused.  53And when they had crossed to the port, they came to the land of Ginesar.  54And when they got out of the boat, the people of that place immediately knew Him.  55And they came running throughout that land, and began to bring those who were seriously sick, carrying them in quilts to places where they heard He was.  56And wherever He entered into villages and cities, they laid the sick in the streets, and begged Him that they might even touch the kanaf of His robe; and all who touched Him were healed.
