Jesus Teaching the Crowds by the Sea of Galilee ►
But Jesus, aware of this,
withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and He healed them all, 16
and warned them not to tell who He was. 17 This was
to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
18 BEHOLD, MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN;
MY BELOVED IN WHOM MY SOUL is WELL-PLEASED;
I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT UPON HIM,
AND HE SHALL PROCLAIM JUSTICE TO THE GENTILES.
19 HE WILL NOT QUARREL, NOR CRY OUT;
NOR WILL ANYONE HEAR HIS VOICE IN THE STREETS.
20 A BATTERED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK OFF,
AND A SMOLDERING WICK HE WILL NOT PUT OUT,
UNTIL HE LEADS JUSTICE TO VICTORY.
21 AND IN HIS NAME THE GENTILES WILL HOPE.
Jesus withdrew to the sea with His disciples; and a great multitude from Galilee followed; and also
from Judea, 8
and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and beyond the Jordan, and the vicinity of Tyre and Sidon, a great number of people heard of all that He was doing and came to Him. 9
And He told His disciples that a boat should stand ready for Him because of the crowd, so that they would not crowd Him; 10
for He had healed many, with the result that all those who had afflictions pressed around Him in order to touch Him. 11
Whenever the unclean spirits saw Him, they would fall down before Him and shout, You are the Son of God! 12
And He earnestly warned them not to tell who He was.
