Then Jesus, knowing these things, withdrew from thence, with His disciples to the sea. And a great multitude from Galilee followed Him. Also from Judea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and beyond the Jordan, and around Tyre and Sidon. A great multitude, hearing how great things He was doing, came to Him.
And He spake to His disciples that a small boat should wait on Him, on account of the crowd, that they might not press upon Him. For He had healed many, so that as many as had plagues pressed upon Him, that they might touch Him. And He healed them all.
Also the unclean spirits, whenever they beheld Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, "Thou art the Son of God." And He charged them repeatedly that they should not make Him known: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, "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 declare judgment to the nations. He shall not strive nor cry aloud; Nor shall any one hear His voice in the streets. A bruised reed He shall not break, And smoking flax He shall not quench, Till He send forth judgment unto victory, And in His name shall the nations hope."
