Coverdale(i) 1 At that tyme Herode ye Tetrarcha herde of ye fame of Iesu, 2 & sayde vnto his seruautes: This is Iho ye baptist. He is rysen agayne fro the deed, therfore are his dedes so mightie. 3 For Herode had take Iho bounde hi, & put him in preson for Herodias sake his brothers Philips wife. 4 For Ihon sayde vnto him: It is not laufull for ye to haue her. 5 And fayne wolde he haue put him to death, but he feared the people, because they helde him for a Prophet. 6 But whan Herode helde his byrth daye, the doughter of Herodias daunsed before the, and that pleased Herode well, 7 wherfore he promysed her with an ooth, yt he wolde geue her, what soeuer she wolde axe. 8 And she (beynge instructe of hir mother afore) sayde: geue me Ihon baptistes heade in a platter. 9 And the kynge was sory. Neuertheles for ye ooth sake, & the yt sat with him at ye table, he comaunded it to be geuen her, 10 and sent, & beheeded Ihon in the preson. 11 And his heed was brought in a platter, and geuen to the damsell, & she brought it vnto her mother. 12 Then came his disciples, and toke his body, and buried it, and wente and tolde Iesus. 13 Whan Iesus hetde yt, he departed thence by shippe in to a desert place alone. And wha the people herde therof, they folowed him on fote out of ye cities. 14 And Iesus wete forth, and sawe moch people, and had pytie vpon them, and healed their sicke. 15 But at euen his disciples came vnto him, & saide: This is a deserte place, and ye night falleth on: let ye people departe from the, that they maye go in to the townes, and bye them vytayles. 16 But Iesus sayde vnto them: They nede not go awaye, geue ye the to eate. 17 The saide they vnto him: We haue here but fyue loaues and two fyshes. 18 And he sayde: bringe the hither. 19 And he comaunded ye people to syt downe vpon the grasse, and toke ye fyue loaues and two fisshes, and loked vp towarde heauen, and gaue thankes, and brake and gaue the loaues vnto the disciples, and the disciples gaue them to the people. 20 And they all ate, and were suffised. And they gathered vp of the broken meate that remayned ouer, twolue basskettes full. 21 And they yt ate, were aboute a fyue thousande men, besyde wemen and children. 22 And straight waye Iesus made his disciples to entre in to a shippe, & to go ouer before hi, tyll he had sent ye people awaye. 23 And whan he had sent the people awaye, he wete vp in to a mountayne alone, to make his prayer. And at euen he was there him self alone. 24 And ye shippe was allready in ye myddest of the see, & was tost wt wawes, for the winde was cotrary. 25 But in ye fourth watch of ye night Iesus came vnto the, walkinge vpon the see. 26 And whan his disciples sawe him goinge vpon the see, they were afrayed, sayenge: It is some sprete, and cried out for feare. 27 But straight waye Iesus spake vnto them, and sayde: Be of good cheare, it is I, be not afrayed. 28 Peter answered him, & saide: LORDE, yf it be thou, byd me come vnto the vpon ye water. 29 And he sayde: come on yi waye. And Peter stepte out of the shippe, & wete vpon the water, to come vnto Iesus. 30 But whan he sawe a mightie wynde, he was afrayed, & begane to synke, & cried, sayenge: LORDE, helpe me. 31 And imediatly Iesus stretched forth his hande, & caught him, & sayde vnto him: O thou of litle faith, wherfore doutest thou? 32 And they wente in to the shippe, & the wynde ceased. 33 Then they that were in ye shippe, came & fell downe before him, & sayde: Of a trueth thou art ye sonne of God. 34 And they shipped ouer, & came in to the lode of Genazereth. 35 And wha ye me of yt place had knowlege of hi, they sent out in to all that coutre rounde aboute, & brought vnto him all that were sicke, 36 & besought him, that they might but touch the hemme of his vesture onely: & as many as touched it, were made whole.
