Matthew 14Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
Herod Says The Miracles of Jesus Mean He Is John The Baptist Back From The Dead
14 At that time, Herod the tetrarch[a] heard the report about Jesus 2 and said to his servants, “This One is John the Baptist. He himself arose from the dead, and for this reason the miraculous-powers[b] are at-work in him”.
For Herod Had Beheaded John The Baptist
3 For[c] Herod, having seized John, bound him and put him away in prison because of Herodias[d], the wife of Philip[e] his brother. 4 For John was saying to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her”. 5 And while wanting to kill him, he feared the crowd, because they were holding him as a prophet. 6 But at Herod’s birthday-celebrations having come about, the daughter[f] of Herodias danced in their midst. And she pleased Herod. 7 Hence, he declared with an oath to give her whatever she asked. 8 And the one, having been prompted[g] by her mother, says, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist”. 9 And [although] having been grieved, the king ordered that it be given, because of the oaths and the ones reclining-back-with him [to eat]. 10 And having sent, he beheaded John in the prison. 11 And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 12 And having come to him, his disciples took away the corpse and buried him. And having gone[h], they reported it to Jesus.
Jesus Creates More Than Enough Bread And Fish To Feed 5000 Men
13 And having heard-of it [i], Jesus withdrew from there privately in a boat to a desolate place. And having heard-of it, the crowds followed Him on foot from the cities. 14 And having gone-out[j], He saw a large crowd and felt-deep-feelings [of compassion] for them. And He cured their sick ones. 15 And having become evening[k], the disciples came to Him saying, “This place is desolate and the hour already passed. Send-away the crowds in order that having gone away into the villages, they may buy themselves food”. 16 But Jesus said to them, “They have no need to go away— you give them something to eat”. 17 But the ones say to Him, “We do not have anything here except five loaves and two fish!” 18 But the One said, “Bring them here to Me”. 19 And having ordered the crowds to lie-back on the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fish, having looked up to heaven, He blessed[l] them. And having broken them, He gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 20 And they all ate and were filled-to-satisfaction. And they picked up the amount of the fragments being left over— twelve full baskets. 21 And the ones eating were about five-thousand men, apart from women and children.
Jesus Walks Across The Raging Sea To His Disciples. They Say, Truly You Are God’s Son
22 And immediately He compelled[m] the disciples to get into the boat and to be going ahead of Him to the other side while[n] He sent-away the crowds. 23 And having sent-away the crowds, He went up on the mountain privately to pray. And having become evening[o], He was there alone. 24 And the boat was already many stades[p] distant from the land, being tormented by the waves. For the wind was contrary. 25 And He came to them in the fourth watch[q] of the night, walking across[r] the sea. 26 But the disciples, having seen Him walking on the sea, were frightened, saying that “It is a phantom[s]”. And they cried-out from the fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take-courage, I am[t] the One. Do not be afraid[u]”. 28 But having responded to Him, Peter said, “Master, if You are[v] the One, order me to come to You across the waters”. 29 And the One said, “Come”. And having gone down from the boat, Peter walked across the waters and came[w] to Jesus. 30 But seeing the strong wind, he became afraid. And having begun to sink, he cried-out, saying, “Master, save me!” 31 And immediately Jesus, having stretched-out His hand, took-hold-of him. And He says to him, “One of-little-faith, for what purpose[x] did you doubt?” 32 And they having gone-up[y] into the boat, the wind stopped. 33 And the ones in the boat gave-worship[z] to Him, saying, “Truly[aa] You are God’s Son”.
In Gennesaret, All Who Just Touch The Tassel of His Garment Are Healed
34 And having crossed-over, they came on land in Gennesaret. 35 And having recognized Him, the men of that place sent out into that whole surrounding-region. And they brought to Him all the ones being ill. 36 And they were begging Him that they might only touch the tassel of His garment. And all-who touched it were restored.
