King James Version

Mark 6:1-56

1And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. 2And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? 3Is 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. 4But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. 6And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

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; 8And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: 9But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. 10And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. 11And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. 12And they went out, and preached that men should repent. 13And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. 14And 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 shew forth themselves in him. 15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets. 16But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead. 17For 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. 18For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife. 19Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: 20For 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. 21And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; 22And 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 thou wilt, and I will give it thee. 23And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom. 24And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. 25And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. 26And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. 27And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, 28And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. 30And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. 31And he said unto them, Come ye 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. 32And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. 33And 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. 34And Jesus, 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. 35And 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: 36Send 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. 37He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? 38He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. 39And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. 40And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 41And 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. 42And they did all eat, and were filled. 43And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. 44And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men. 45And 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. 46And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. 47And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. 48And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. 49But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out: 50For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. 51And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. 52For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened. 53And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore. 54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, 55And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. 56And 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.

Knijga O Kristu

Marko 6:1-56

Isusa ne prihvaćaju u Nazaretu

(Mt 13:54-58; Lk 4:16-30)

1Isus ode odande i vrati se s učenicima u svoj zavičaj, u Nazaret. 2Sljedeće subote ode u sinagogu i počne poučavati. Mnogi ljudi su se divili i govorili: “Odakle mu ta mudrost i sila kojom čini takva čudesa? 3Nije li on drvodjelja, Marijin sin, Jakovljev, Josijin, Judin i Šimunov brat? Nisu li mu sestre tu među nama?” I sablaznili su se zbog njega.

4Isus im reče: “Proroku ne iskazuju čast jedino u njegovu zavičaju, među rodbinom i u njegovu domu.” 5Zbog njihove nevjere nije mogao ondje učiniti nikakva čuda, samo je iscijelio nekoliko bolesnika položivši na njih ruke. 6Čudio se njihovoj nevjeri.

Isus šalje dvanaestoricu apostola

(Mt 10:1, 9-14; Lk 9:1-6)

Išao je po selima i poučavao. 7Pozvao je sebi Dvanaestoricu te ih počeo slati po dvojicu dajući im vlast da izgone nečiste duhove.

8Zapovjedio im je da na put ne ponesu ništa osim štapa—ni kruha, ni torbu, ni bakrena novca koji se običavao nositi u pojasu. 9Reče im da obuju sandale, ali da ne ponesu ni ogrtača. 10Kazao je: “Kad boravite u nekome mjestu, stanujte u jednoj kući i ne mijenjajte smještaj. 11Ako vas u nekome mjestu ne prihvate ili ne poslušaju, stresite i prašinu s nogu kad odlazite. To će biti znak da ste ga prepustili njegovoj sudbini.”

12Tako su učenici otišli i propovijedali o pokajanju. 13Mnoge su zloduhe istjerali i mnogo bolesnika pomazali uljem i iscijelili.

Smrt Ivana Krstitelja

(Mt 14:1-12; Lk 9:7-9)

14Ubrzo je i kralj Herod Antipa čuo za Isusa jer se o njemu posvuda govorilo. Neki su govorili: “To je od mrtvih uskrsnuo Ivan Krstitelj pa sad u njemu djeluju čudesne sile.” 15Drugi su pak govorili da je Isus starodrevni prorok Ilija. Treći su tvrdili da je on novi prorok poput onih iz prošlosti.

16Herod na to reče: “To je Ivan komu sam dao odrubiti glavu. Uskrsnuo je!” 17Herod je, naime, zapovjedio da Ivana okuju u lance i bace u tamnicu zbog Herodijade, žene Herodova brata Filipa. 18Herod ju je uzeo za ženu, a Ivan ga je opominjao: “Nije se dopušteno ženiti ženom vlastitog brata!” 19Herodijada je zato zamrzila Ivana i htjela ga je ubiti, ali to nije mogla učiniti 20jer je Herod poštivao Ivana. Znao je da je svet i dobar čovjek i zato ga je štitio. Iako bi se uvijek uznemirio kad bi razgovarao s Ivanom, Herod ga je rado slušao.

21Na posljetku se Herodijadi pružila prigoda. Herodu je bio rođendan te je priredio gozbu za svoje dvorane, visoke časnike i najuglednije građane Galileje. 22Herodijadina kći plesala za Heroda i njegove uzvanike i svima se svidjela. “Traži od mene što ti drago,” reče kralj djevojci, 23“pa bila to i polovica mojega kraljevstva, i dat ću ti što zatražiš!”

24Djevojka iziđe i upita majku: “Što da tražim?”

A ona odgovori: “Traži glavu Ivana Krstitelja!”

25Djevojka požuri natrag kralju te mu reče: “Zapovjedi da mi na pladnju donesu glavu Ivana Krstitelja, i to odmah!”

26Kralj se ražalosti, ali zbog toga što se zakleo i zbog uzvanika ne htjede ju odbiti. 27Odmah naredi krvniku da donese Ivanovu glavu. Krvnik ode u tamnicu, odrubi Ivanu glavu 28te je na pladnju dade djevojci, a ona ju odnese majci. 29Kad za to doznaše Ivanovi učenici, dođu uzeti njegovo tijelo da ga polože u grob.

Isus hrani pet tisuća ljudi

(Mt 14:13-21; Lk 9:10-17; Iv 6:1-13)

30Apostoli se s putovanja vrate Isusu te ga izvijeste o svemu što su činili i što su poučavali. 31Isus im predloži: “Sklonimo se malo u osamu da se odmorimo.” Jer je dolazilo i odlazilo toliko ljudi da nisu imali vremena ni jesti.

32Otisnu se tako lađom prema mirnijemu mjestu. 33No mnogi su ih opazili kako odlaze pa su ljudi iz mnogih mjesta potrčali onamo obalom i stigli prije njih. 34Kad je izišao iz lađice, ugleda silan narod pa se sažali nad njima jer su bili kao ovce bez pastira pa ih je dugo poučavao.

35Kad je dan poodmaknuo, pristupe mu njegovi učenici i kazaše: “Pust je ovo kraj a već je i kasno. 36Otpusti ljude da mogu otići na okolna imanja i sela te si kupiti što za jelo!”

37“Vi ih nahranite!” odgovori im Isus.

“Čime?” upitaju. “Trebalo bi nam cijelo bogatstvo6:37 U grčkome: dvjesto denara. da se kupi hrana za toliko mnoštvo!”

38“Pogledajte koliko hrane imate”, reče im.

Vrate se i kažu da imaju pet kruhova i dvije ribe. 39Isus im zapovjedi da posjedaju u skupine po zelenoj travi. 40Posjedali su u skupine od stotinu i od pedeset ljudi. 41Isus uzme pet kruhova i dvije ribe, pogleda u nebo i blagoslovi hranu te razlomi kruhove. Dade ih zatim učenicima da podijele ljudima. Također svima podijeli i one dvije ribe. 42Svi su jeli dok se nisu nasitili 43i još poslije pokupe punih dvanaest košara preostalih ulomaka te ostatak riba. 44A nahranilo se pet tisuća muškaraca.

Isus hoda po vodi

(Mt 14:22-33; Iv 6:16-21)

45Odmah zatim Isus natjera učenike da uđu u lađu i da preplove na drugu obalu, prema Betsaidi, dok on otpusti mnoštvo. 46Pošto se rastao s ljudima, otišao je u goru da se moli.

47Bila je noć, učenici su bili u lađi nasred jezera, a on sam na kopnu. 48Opazi da jedva veslaju boreći se s nasuprotnim vjetrom te oko tri ure ujutro6:48 U grčkome: oko četvrte noćne straže. krene prema njima hodajući po vodi. Htio im je prići, 49ali kad ga ugledaju kako hoda po vodi prema njima, vrisnu od straha misleći da je sablast. 50Svi su ga vidjeli i prestrašili se. Ali on im odmah reče: “Samo hrabro! Ja sam! Ne bojte se!” 51Tada su ušli u lađu i vjetar prestane. Učenike je zaprepastilo to što su vidjeli. 52Još nisu shvaćali značenje čuda s umnoženim kruhom jer su im srca bila tvrda i nisu vjerovali.

Isus ozdravlja sve koji ga dotaknu

(Mt 14:34-36)

53Preplove jezero i pristanu u Genezaretu te privežu lađu 54i iziđu. Ljudi ga odmah prepoznaju 55i rastrče se po cijelomu kraju da razglase vijest o njegovu dolasku te mu počnu donositi bolesnike na nosilima. 56I u koji god bi grad, selo ili zaselak ušao, polijegali bi bolesnike na trgove i ulice te ga molili da im dopusti dotaknuti barem skut njegove haljine—i svi koji bi ga dotaknuli ozdravljali su.
