Then he [Jesus WU] called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils [demons], and to cure diseases. LK 9:1 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. LK 9:2 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves [staffs], nor scrip [travel bag WU], neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece [and extra tunic WU]. LK 9:3 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide [stay], and thence depart [until you leave that town WU]. LK 9:4 And whosoever will not receive [welcome WU] you, when ye go out of that city [town WU], shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. LK 9:5
And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing [people WU] every where. LK 9:6 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of [by] some, that John was risen from the dead; LK 9:7 And of some, that Elias [Elijah] had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. LK 9:8 And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him. LK 9:9 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him [Jesus WU] all that they had done.
And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. LK 9:10 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received [welcomed WU] them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing. LK 9:11
And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals [food]: for we are here in a desert place. LK 9:12 But he said unto them, Give ye them [something] to eat. And they said, We have no more but [than] five loaves and two fishes; except [unless] we should go and buy meat [food] for all this people. LK 9:13 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. LK 9:14 And they did so, and made them all sit down. LK 9:15 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake [broke them], and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. LK 9:16 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets. LK 9:17
