And Jesus with his disciples withdrew to the sea;
and a great many from Galilee followed;
and from Judea and from Jerusalem and from Idumea
and beyond the Jordan and around Tyre and Sidon,
a great many, hearing what he was doing, came to him.
And he told his disciples that
a small boat should be ready for him
because of the crowd, lest they press upon him.
For he had healed many, so those who were suffering
fell upon him so that they might touch him.
And the unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell before him
and cried out saying, "You are the son of God."
And he strongly warned them that they should not make him known.
But Jesus knowing withdrew from there.
And many followed him, and he healed them all,
and he warned them that they should not make him known;
so that what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah
might be fulfilled, saying,
Look, my servant whom I chose,
my beloved in whom my soul is delighted;
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
He will not quarrel nor shout,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed he will not break
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he leads justice to victory.
And in his name nations will hope.
And he went up on the mountain,
and called to him those whom he wished, and they came to him.
And he appointed twelve so that they might be with him,
and so that he might send them out to preach
and to have authority to expel the demons;
and he appointed the twelve, and laid the name Peter on Simon;
and James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James,
and he laid on them the name Boanerges, which is sons of thunder;
and Andrew and Philip, and Bartholomew and Matthew and Thomas
and James son of Alphaeus and Thaddeus and Simon the Zealot
and Judas Iscariot, who even gave him over.
And these are the names of the twelve disciples:
first Simon who is called Peter and Andrew his brother,
and James son of Zebedee and John his brother,
Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the tax collector,
James son of Alphaeus and Thaddeus, Simon the Zealot
and Judas Iscariot who even gave him over.
And it happened in these days
that he went out to the mountain to pray,
and he was spending the night in prayer to God.
And when day came, he called his disciples,
and choosing from them twelve, whom he also named apostles:
Simon, whom he also named Peter, and Andrew his brother,
and James and John, and Philip and Bartholomew,
and Matthew and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus
and Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas son of James,
and Judas Iscariot, who became a betrayer,
and coming down with them he stood on a level place,
and a large crowd of his disciples,
and a great many of the people from all of Judea and Jerusalem
and the coast of Tyre and Sidon, came to hear him,
and those troubled by unclean spirits were healed.
And all the crowd tried to touch him,
because power came out from him and cured them all.
