And Jesus, rising very early while it was yet night, went out and departed into a desert place and there prayed. Then when it was day, Simon and those with him followed after Him and found Him and said to Him, "All are seeking Thee." And He saith to them, "Let us go elsewhere into the neighboring country towns, that I may preach there also; for to this end I came forth."
And the multitudes sought for Him and came to Him and tried to detain Him, that He should not go from them. But He said to them, "I am bound to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; because for this I was sent forth."
And He went about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people, and casting out demons. And the report of Him went forth into all Syria: and they brought to Him all that were sick, afflicted with various diseases and torments, demoniacs and epileptics and paralytics, and He healed them. And there followed Him great multitudes from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, and Judea, and beyond the Jordan.
