Mark 3:7-9 Modern English Version (MEV)
The Crowd at the Seaside
7 Jesus withdrew with His disciples to the sea. And a great crowd followed Him from Galilee and Judea 8 and Jerusalem, and Idumea, and from beyond the Jordan. And those from Tyre and Sidon, a great crowd, when they heard what great things He did, came to Him. 9 He told the disciples to have a small boat ready for Him because of the crowd, lest they should crush Him.
