||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.
