And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence [where] hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? MK 6:2 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. MK 6:3 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin [relatives], and in his own house. MK 6:4 And he could there do no mighty work, save [except] that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. MK 6:5 And he marvelled because of their unbelief.

And he [Jesus WU] went round about the villages, teaching. MK 6:6 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two [two by two]; and gave them power over unclean [evil WU] spirits; MK 6:7 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save [except] a staff only; no scrip [bag WU], no bread, no money in their purse: MK 6:8 But be shod with [wear] sandals; and not put on two coats [take an extra coat WU]. MK 6:9 And he said unto them, In what place soever [in a town, whenever WU] ye enter into an house, there abide [stay] till ye depart from that place. MK 6:10 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear [listen to WU] you, when ye depart thence [from there], shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily [assuredly] I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. MK 6:11

And they went out, and preached that men should repent. MK 6:12 And they cast out many devils [demons], and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. MK 6:13

And king Herod heard of him [Jesus WU]; (for his name was spread abroad [had become known]:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew [show WU] forth themselves in him. MK 6:14 Others said, That it is Elias [Elijah]. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as [like] one of the prophets. MK 6:15 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead. MK 6:16 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her. MK 6:17 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife. MK 6:18 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: MK 6:19 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed [protected WU] him; and when he heard him, he did many things [was baffled WU], and heard him gladly. MK 6:20 And when [then] a convenient day was come [day of opportunity came WU], that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates [men] of Galilee; MK 6:21 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel [young lady], Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. MK 6:22 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto [up to] the half of my kingdom. MK 6:23 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. MK 6:24 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will [want] that thou give me by and by [right now] in a charger [on a platter] the head of John the Baptist. MK 6:25 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their [the] sakes [of his dinner guests] which sat with him, he would not reject [refuse] her. MK 6:26 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his [John's WU] head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, MK 6:27 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. MK 6:28 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb. MK 6:29
