highlighted Matthew 14:3-21 NASB
He sent and had John beheaded in the prison.And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.His disciples came and took away the body and buried it; and they went and reported to Jesus.aNow when Jesus heard about John, He withdrew from there in a boat to a secluded place by Himself; and when the people heard of this, they followed Him on foot from the cities.When He went ashore, He asaw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and bhealed their sick.When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, "This place is desolate and the hour is already late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves."But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!"They said to Him, "We have here only afive loaves and two fish."And He said, "Bring them here to Me."Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He ablessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds,and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full abaskets.There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.For when aHerod had John arrested, he bound him and put him bin prison because of cHerodias, the wife of his brother Philip.For John had been saying to him, "aIt is not lawful for you to have her."Although Herod wanted to put him to death, he feared the crowd, because they regarded John as aa prophet.But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of aHerodias danced before them and pleased bHerod,so much that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked.Having been prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist."Although he was grieved, the king commanded it to be given because of his oaths, and because of his dinner guests.

And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned Jesus, asking, "aIs it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"--so that they might accuse Him.And He said to them, "aWhat man is there among you who has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out?"aHow much more valuable then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."Then He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand!" aHe stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other.

Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, "cTake courage, son; dyour sins are forgiven."And some of the scribes said to themselves, "This fellow ablasphemes."And Jesus aknowing their thoughts said, "Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?"Which is easier, to say, 'aYour sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, and walk'?"But so that you may know that athe Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"--then He said to the bparalytic, "Get up, pick up your bed and go home."And he got up and went home.But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and aglorified God, who had given such authority to men.
