Bible: Mark 3:7-12

Crowds by the Sea

3:7 Then 1  Jesus went away with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him. 2  And from Judea, 3:8 Jerusalem, 3  Idumea, beyond the Jordan River, 4  and around Tyre 5  and Sidon 6  a great multitude came to him when they heard about the things he had done. 3:9 Because of the crowd, he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him so the crowd 7  would not press toward him. 3:10 For he had healed many, so that all who were afflicted with diseases pressed toward him in order to touch him. 3:11 And whenever the unclean spirits 8  saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.” 3:12 But 9  he sternly ordered them not to make him known. 10
