5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country
of the Gadarenes.
5:2-8 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him
out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among
the tombs and no man could bind him, no, not with chains, Because that
he had been often bound with fetters and chains and the chains had been
plucked asunder by him and the fetters
broken in pieces, neither could any man tame him. And always, night and
day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying and cutting himself
account in Luke 8:27-39 with more
informatiom).But when he saw
Emmanuel afar off, he ran and worshipped.(worship
is to regard another highly with attention).him,
And cried with a loud voice and said, What have I to do with thee, Emmanuel,
thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment
me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
5:9 And he asked him, What is your name? And he answered, saying, My
name is Legion, for we are many.
5:10-18 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out
of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd
of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into
the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Emmanuel gave them
leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine and
the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea; they were about
two thousand, and were choked in the sea. And they that fed the swine fled
and told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see what
it was that was done. And they come to Emmanuel and see him that was possessed
with the devil and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right
mind, and they were afraid. And they that saw it told them how it befell
to him that was possessed with the devil and also concerning the swine.
And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. And when he was
come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him
that he might be with him.
5:19 Howbeit Emmanuel suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home
to your friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for
you and has had compassion on thee.
5:20 And he departed and began to publish in Decapolis how great things
Emmanuel had done for him, and all men did marvel.
5:21 And when Emmanuel was passed over again by ship unto the other
side, much people gathered unto him; and he was nigh unto the sea.
5:22 And, behold, there comes one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus
by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet
5:23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lies at the
point of death. I pray you, come and lay your hands on her that she may
be healed and she shall live.
5:24 And Emmanuel went with him and much people followed him and thronged
5:25,26 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years
and had suffered many things of many physicians and had spent all that
she had and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse.
5:27,28 When she had heard of Emmanuel, came in the press.(a
of people).behind and touched
his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes I shall be whole.
5:29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up and she
felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
5:30-33 And Emmanuel, immediately knowing in himself that virtue.(original
'power').had gone out of him,
turned him about in the press and said, Who touched my clothes? And his
disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee and sayest
thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done
this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done
in her, came and fell down before him and told him all the truth.
5:34 And he said unto her, Daughter, your faith has made thee whole.
Go in peace and be whole of your plague.
5:35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's
house certain which said, Your daughter is dead. Why trouble you the Master
5:36 As soon as Emmanuel heard the word that was spoken, he said unto
the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
Why would the
ruler of the synagogue
be afraid? He was the ruler, the high priest. They all looked to him. If
it didn't work out by having Emmamuel come to heal his daughter, those
who looked to the high
priest probably would have a lesser opinion of him and that would have
taken away from the position he held under God.
5:37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter and James and
John the brother of James.
5:38-43 And he comes to the house of the ruler of the synagogue and
seeing the tumult
and them that wept and wailed greatly. And when he was come in, he said
unto them, Why make you this ado
and weep? the damsel is not dead but sleeps. And they laughed
him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he took the
father and the mother of the damsel and them that were with him and entered
in where the damsel was lying. And he took the damsel by the hand and said
unto her, Talitha cumi, which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto
you, arise. And straightway the damsel arose and walked, for she was of
the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
And he charged them straitly that no man should know it and said that something
should be given her to eat.
6:1 And he went out from thence and came into his own country and his
disciples followed him.
6:2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue
and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence has this man
these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even
such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James
and Joses and of Juda and Simon and are not his sisters here with us? And
they were offended at him.
Poole's Commentary: they could not comprehend how one who had almost
thirty years lived as a carpenter amongst them should come by such powers
from God, as their belief then was to be trained in a formal religious
school; just like today where people have forgotten God heals and any healer
of God, such as Bruno Gröning.(type

dismissed unless he has been trained in the world's medical arts; people

6:4 But Emmanuel said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but
in his own country and among his own kin and in his own house.
6:5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands
upon a few sick folk and healed them.
6:6 And he marveled because of their unbelief.
And he went round about the villages, teaching.
6:7 And he called unto him the twelve and began to send them forth
by two and two and gave them power over unclean spirits;
6:8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey,
save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse.
6:9 But be shod with sandals and not
put on two coats.
6:10 And he said unto them, In what place soever you enter into an
house, there abide till you depart from that place.

6:12 And they went out and preached that men should repent.(why?).
6:13 And they cast
out many devils and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed
6:14 And king
Herod heard of him, for his name was spread abroad and he said, That
John the Baptist was risen from the dead and therefore mighty works do
show forth themselves in him.
6:15,16 Others said, That it is Elias.
And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets. But when
Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded. He is risen
from the dead.
6:17-28 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John and
bound him in prison for Herodias'
sake, his brother Philip's wife, for he had married her. For John had said
unto Herod, It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife.
Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him and would have killed him.(would
have had him killed by her husband).but
she could not, For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and
an holy and observed him and when he heard him, he did many things and
heard him gladly. And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his
birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains and chief estates of
Galilee; And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in and danced
and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel,
Ask of me whatsoever you will.(not
a wise person and he was probably drunk).and
I will give it you. And he sware unto her, Whatsoever you shall ask of
me, I will give it you, unto the half of my kingdom. And she went forth
and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John
the Baptist. And she came in straightway with haste unto the king and asked,
saying, I will that you give me by and by in a charger the head of John
the Baptist. And the king was exceeding sorry yet for his oath's sake and
for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. And immediately
the king sent an executioner and commanded his head to be brought. And
he went and beheaded him in the prison and brought his head in a charger
and gave it to the damsel and the damsel gave it to her mother.

6:29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his
corpse and laid it in a tomb.
6:30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Emmanuel and
told him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught.
6:31-33 And he said unto them, Come you yourselves apart into a desert
place and rest a while, for there were many coming and going and they had
no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by
ship privately. And the people saw them departing and many knew him and
ran afoot thither
out of all cities and outwent them and came together unto him.
6:34-44 And Emmanuel, when he came out, saw much people and was moved
with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd
and he began to teach them many things. And when the day was now far spent,
his disciples came unto him and said, This is a desert place and now the
time is far passed. Send them away, that they may go into the country round
about and into the villages and buy themselves bread, for they have nothing
to eat. He answered and said unto them, Give you them to eat. And they
say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread and give
them to eat? He said unto them, How many loaves have you? go and see. And
when they knew they said, Five and two fishes. And he commanded them to
make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. And they sat down
in ranks, by hundreds and by fifties. And when he had taken the five loaves
and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven and blessed and brake the loaves
and gave them to his disciples to set before them and the two fishes divided
he among them all. And they did all eat and were filled. And they took
up twelve baskets full of the fragments and of the fishes. And they that
did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
6:45-47 And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the
ship and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away
the people. And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain
to pray. And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea and
he alone on the land.
6:48 And he saw them toiling in rowing, for the wind was contrary unto
them and about the fourth watch of the night he came unto them walking
upon the sea and would have passed by them.
6:49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had
been a spirit and cried out.
6:50 For they all saw him and were troubled. And immediately he talked
with them and said unto them, Be of good cheer; it is I, be not afraid.
6:51 And he went up unto them into the ship and the wind ceased and
they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure and wondered.
Mark 6:52 For they considered not the miracle
of the loaves for their heart was hardened.
6:52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves.(verses
just above).for their heart was hardened.(original
for 'hardened' is 'blinded', 'thickened'; even after being involved in
an astounding feat
of physical manifestation
from the invisible regarding the miracle of the loaves and fishes, the
consciousness again quickly takes over; it takes desire, time, circumstances
and thinking to make spiritual things solid in a person).
6:53-56 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret
and drew to the shore. And when they were come out of the ship, straightway
they knew him, And ran through that whole region round about and began
to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. 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.
