    Section XVIII.

    [1] 1266

    1266 Matt. xiv. 1; Luke ix. 7b.

    At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus, and all the things which came to pass at his hand; 1267

    1267 Mark vi. 14b.

    and he marvelled, for he had obtained excellent [2] information concerning him.1268

    1268 There can be little doubt that this is the meaning of the Arabic.  There is nothing like it in the Peshitta; the Curetonian is of course lacking; but the phrase in the Sinaitic is very similar.


    1269 Luke ix. 7c.

    And some men said that John the Baptist was risen [3] from among the dead; 1270

    1270 Luke ix. 8a; Matt. xvi. 14b.


    1271 Here begins verse 8a in Greek.

    others said that Elijah had appeared; and others, Jeremiah; [4] and others, that a prophet of the old prophets was risen; 1272

    1272 Luke ix. 8b; Mark vi. 15b.

    and others said that he [5] was a prophet like one of the prophets1273

    1273 Mark vi. 16; Matt. xiv. 2b.

    Herod said to his servants, This is John the Baptist, he whom I beheaded; he is risen from among the dead:  therefore mighty [6] [Arabic, p. 70] works result from him.  1274

    1274 Mark vi. 17.

    For Herod himself had sent and taken John, and cast him into prison, for the sake of Herodias his brother Philip’s wife, whom he [7] had taken.  1275

    1275 Mark vi. 18.

    And John said to Herod, Thou hast no authority to take the wife of thy [8] brother1276

    1276 Mark vi. 19.

    And Herodias avoided him and wished to kill him; and she could not.  [9] 1277

    1277 Mark vi. 20.

    But Herod feared John, for he knew that he was a righteous man and a holy; and [10] he guarded him, and heard him much, and did, and obeyed him with gladness1278

    1278 Matt. xiv. 5.

    And he wished to kill him; but he feared the people, for they adhered to him as the [11] prophet1279

    1279 Mark vi. 21.

    And there was a celebrated day, and Herod had made a feast for his great men on the day of his anniversary,1280

    1280 Perhaps appointment (cf. Moesinger, p. 165; but Isho‘dad [Harris, Fragments, p. 65] and the Brit. Mus. text of Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary have the ordinary reading).

    and for the officers and for the chief men [12] of Galilee1281

    1281 Mark vi. 22.

    And the daughter of Herodias came in and danced in the midst of the company, and pleased Herod and those that sat with him.  And the king said to the [13] damsel, Ask of me what thou wilt, and I will give it thee.  1282

    1282 Mark vi. 23.

    And he sware unto her, [14] Whatsoever thou shalt ask, I will give it thee, to the half of my kingdom1283

    1283 Mark vi. 24.

    And she went out, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask him?1284

    1284 Or simply ask.

      She said unto her, The [15] head of John the Baptist.  1285

    1285 Mark vi. 25.

    And immediately she came in hastily to the king, and said unto him, I desire in this hour that thou give me on a dish the head of John [16] the Baptist.  1286

    1286 Mark vi. 26.

    And the king was exceeding sorry; but because of the oath and the [17] guests he did not wish to refuse her.  1287

    1287 Mark vi. 27.

    But immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded that he should bring the head of John:  and he went and cut off [18] the head of John in the prison, 1288

    1288 Mark vi. 28.

    and brought it on a dish, and delivered it to the [19] damsel; and the damsel gave it to her mother.  1289

    1289 Mark vi. 29.

    And his disciples heard, and came [Arabic, p. 71] and took his body, and buried it.  1290

    1290 Matt. xiv. 12b.

    And they came and told1291

    1291 Or, to tell.

    Jesus what [20] had happened.  1292

    1292 Luke ix. 9.

    And for this cause Herod said, I beheaded John:  who [21] is this, of whom I hear these things.  And he desired to see him.  1293

    1293 Matt. xiv. 13a; John vi. 1b.

    And Jesus, when he heard, removed thence in a boat to a waste place alone, to the other side of the sea of the Galilee of Tiberias.1294

    1294 A misunderstanding or slavish reproduction of the Syriac.  The Brit. Mus. text of Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary has of Galilee, Tiberias.

    [22] 1295

    1295 Mark vi. 33a.

    And many saw them going, and knew them, and hastened by land1296

    1296 cf. Syriac versions and margin of R.V.

    from all the cities, and came thither beforehand; 1297

    1297 John vi. 2b.

    for they saw the signs which he was doing on the [23, 24] sick1298

    1298 John vi. 3.

    And Jesus went up into the mountain, and sat there with his disciples1299

    1299 John vi. 4.

    And [25] the feast of the passover of the Jews was near.  1300

    1300 John vi. 5a.

    And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and saw great multitudes coming to him.  1301

    1301 Mark vi. 34b.

    And he was moved with compassion for them, for [26] they were like sheep that were without a shepherd1302

    1302 Luke ix. 11b.

    And he received them, and spake to them concerning the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing.

    [27] 1303

    1303 Matt. xiv. 15a.

    And when the evening approached,1304

    1304 Or, came.

    his disciples came to him, and said unto [28] him, 1305

    1305 Mark vi. 36.

    The place is desert, and the time is past; send away the multitudes of the people,1306

    1306 cf. the addition in the Sinaitic Syriac.

    that they may go to the towns and villages which are around us, and buy for [29] themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat.  1307

    1307 Matt. xiv. 16.

    But he said unto them, They have [30] no need to go away; give ye them what may be eaten.  1308

    1308 Matt. xiv. 17a.

    They said unto him, We have not here enough1309

    1309 John vi. 5b.

    He said unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread that these may eat?  [31, 32] 1310

    1310 John vi. 6.

    And he said that proving him; and he knew what he was resolved to do.  1311

    1311 John vi. 7.

    Philip said [Arabic, p. 72] unto him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread would not suffice them after1312

    1312 Probably a mistaken rendering of the ordinary Syriac reading.

    [33] every one of them hath taken a small amount.  1313

    1313 John vi. 8.

    One of his disciples said unto [34] him (namely, Andrew the brother of Simon Cephas), 1314

    1314 John vi. 9.

    Here is a lad having five loaves [35] of barley and two fishes:  but this amount, what is it for all these?  1315

    1315 Luke ix. 13b; considerably changed.

    But wilt thou that we go and buy for all the people what may be eaten? for we have no more [36] than these five loaves and the two fishes.  1316

    1316 John vi. 10b; and Luke ix. 14b, 15a.

    And the grass was plentiful in that place.  Jesus said unto them, Arrange all the people that they may sit down on the grass, [37] fifty people in a company1317

    1317 Mark vi. 40.

    And the disciples did so.  And all the people sat down [38] by companies, by hundreds and fifties.  1318

    1318 Matt. xiv. 18.

    Then Jesus said unto them, Bring hither [39] those five loaves and the two fishes.  1319

    1319 Mark vi. 41a.

    And when they brought him that, Jesus took the bread and the fish, and looked to heaven, and blessed, and divided, and gave to [40] his disciples to set before them; 1320

    1320 Matt. xiv. 19b.

    and the disciples set for the multitudes the bread [41] and the fish; and they ate, all of them, and were satisfied.  1321

    1321 Matt. xiv. 20a; John vi. 12.

    And when they were satisfied, he said unto his disciples, Gather the fragments that remain over, that nothing [42] be lost.  1322

    1322 John vi. 13.

    And they gathered, and filled twelve baskets with fragments, being those that remained over from those which ate of the five barley loaves and the two [43] fishes.  1323

    1323 Matt. xiv. 21.

    And those people who ate were five thousand, besides the women and children.  [44] [Arabic, p. 73] 1324

    1324 Mark vi. 45.

    And straightway he pressed his disciples to go up into the ship, and that they should go before him unto the other side to Bethsaida, while he [45] himself should send away the multitudes.  1325

    1325 John vi. 14.

    And those people who saw the sign which [46] Jesus did, said, Of a truth this is a prophet who hath come into the world1326

    1326 John vi. 15.

    And Jesus knew their purpose to come and take him, and make him a king; and he left them, and went up into the mountain alone for prayer.

    [47, 48] 1327

    1327 John vi. 16.

    And when the nightfall was near, his disciples went down unto the sea, and sat1328

    1328 cf. Syriac versions.

    in a boat, and came to the side of Capernaum1329

    1329 John vi. 17.

    And the darkness came on, and Jesus [49] had not come to them.  1330

    1330 John vi. 18.

    And the sea was stirred up against them by reason of a violent [50] wind that blew.  1331

    1331 Matt. xiv. 24.

    And the boat was distant from the land many furlongs, and they were much damaged by the waves, and the wind was against them.
