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. 10 For He had healed many, so that all who had diseases pressed on Him to touch Him. 11 When unclean spirits saw Him, they fell down before Him, crying out, “You are the Son of God.” 12 But He sternly ordered them not to make Him known.
