|But Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea. And a great crowd followed him from Galilee and Judea,
|and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea and across the Jordan. And those around Tyre and Sidon, upon hearing what he was doing, came to him in a great multitude.
|And he told his disciples that a small boat would be useful to him, because of the crowd, lest they press upon him.
|For he healed so many, that as many of them as had wounds would rush toward him in order to touch him.
|And the unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell prostrate before him. And they cried out, saying,
|“You are the Son of God.” And he strongly admonished them, lest they make him known.
