|And it happened that, in those days, he went out to a mountain to pray. And he was in the prayer of God throughout the night.
|And when daylight had arrived, he called his disciples. And he chose twelve out of them (whom he also named Apostles):
|Simon, whom he surnamed Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
|Matthew and Thomas, James of Alphaeus, and Simon who is called the Zealot,
|and Jude of James, and Judas Iscariot, who was a traitor.
|And descending with them, he stood in a level place with a multitude of his disciples, and a copious multitude of people from all of Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast, and Tyre and Sidon,
|who had come so that they might listen to him and be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled by unclean spirits were cured.
|And the entire crowd was trying to touch him, because power went out from him and healed all.
