(Matt 13:53-58; Luke 4:16-30)
6:1 And Yehoshua (יהושע) went out from thence, and came into his own country; and His Talmidim follow Him.
6:2 And when Yom Shabbat was come, He began to teach in the shul: and many hearing [him] were astonished, saying, From whence hath this [man] these things? and what wisdom [is] this which is given to Him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Miriyam, the brother of Yaakov, and Yochanan, and of Yehudah, and Shimon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at Him.
6:4 But Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them:
A Navi is not wiyout honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
6:5 And He could there do no mighty work, save that He laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed [them].
6:6 And He marvelled because of their unbelief. And He went round about the villages, teaching.
6:7 And He called [to him] the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over ruachim hatumah (unclean spirits);
6:8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for [their] journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no lechem, no money in [their] purse:
6:9 But [be] shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
6:10 And He said to them, In what place soever you enter into an house, there abide till you depart from that place.
6:11 And, whatsoever place shall not welcome you nor hearken to you, when you are going forth from thence, shake off the dust that is under you feet, for a witness against them.
6:12 And they went out, and proclaimed that men should repent.
6:13 And they cast out many shedim, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed [them].
(Matt 14:1-12; Luke 9:7-9)
6:14 And king Herod heard [of him]; (for his name was spread abroad:) and He said, That Yochanan the Immerser was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in Him.
6:15 Others said, That it is Eliyahu. And others said, That it is a Navi, or as one of ha Neviim.
6:16 But when Herod heard [thereof], He said, It is Yochanan, whom I beheaded: He is risen from the dead.
6:17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon Yochanan, and bound Him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for He had married her.
6:18 For Yochanan had said to Herod, It is not mutar (permissive) for you to have your brother's wife.
6:19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against Him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
6:20 For Herod feared Yochanan, knowing that He was a just man and an set apart, and observed him; and when He heard Him, He did many things, and heard Him gladly.
6:21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his masters, high captains, and chief [estates] of Galil;
6:22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with Him, the king said to the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever you want, and I will give [it] you.
6:23 And He sware to her, Whatsoever you shalt ask of me, I will give [it] you, to the half of my kingdom.
6:24 And she went forth, and said to her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of Yochanan the Immerser.
6:25 And she came in straightway with haste to the king, and asked, saying, I will that you give me by and by in a charger the head of Yochanan the Immerser.
6:26 And the king was exceeding sorry; [yet] for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with Him, He would not reject her.
6:27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and He went and beheaded Him in the prison,
6:28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
6:29 And when His Talmidim heard [of it], they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a kever.
6:30 And the Shlichim (apostolos) gathered themselves together to Yehoshua (יהושע), and told Him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
6:31 And Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them:
Come you yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
6:32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
6:33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew Him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together to Him.
6:34 And Yehoshua (יהושע), when He came out, saw much people, and was moved with rachmei shomayim (compassion) toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and He began to teach them many things.
6:35 And when the day was now far spent, His Talmidim came to Him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time [is] far passed:
6:36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves lechem: for they have nothing to eat.
(Mattityahu 14:13-21; Loukas 9:10-17; Yochanan 6:1-14)
6:37 Yehoshua (יהושע) answered and said to them:
Give you them to eat. And they say to Him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of lechem, and give them to eat?
6:38 He said to them, How many sheva kikrot (loaves) have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
6:39 And He commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
6:40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
6:41 And when He had taken the five sheva kikrot (loaves) and the two fishes, He looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the sheva kikrot (loaves), and gave [them] to His Talmidim to set before them; and the two fishes divided He among them all.
6:42 And they did all eat, and were filled.
6:43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
6:44 And they that did eat of the kikrot (loaves) were about five yousand men.
Yehoshua (יהושע) walks on the sea
(Matt 14:22-23; Yochanan 6:15-21)
6:45 And straightway He constrained His Talmidim to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before to Beit-Tzaidah, while He sent away the people.
6:46 And when He had sent them away, He departed into a mountain to pray.
6:47 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and He alone on the land.
6:48 And He saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary to them: and about the fourth watch of the night Yehoshua (יהושע) cometh to them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.
6:49 But when they saw Yehoshua (יהושע) walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:
6:50 For they all saw Yehoshua (יהושע), and were troubled. And immediately He talked with them, and said to them,
"Chazak (Be strong): Ani Hu (I am He); be not afraid."
6:51 And He went up to them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
6:52 For they considered not [the miracle] of the sheva kikrot (loaves): for their heart was hardened.
6:53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
6:54 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew Him,
6:55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard He was.
6:56 And whithersoever He entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought Him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched Him were made whole.

Beit-Tzada - came from the root word tzayadim meaning House of hunters (Yirmeyahu 16:16)- dayagim (fisherman). "I will send for many fishers" There are two verses in the Brit Hadashah that fulfill this verse: Matityahu 4:19 And he said to them, Follow * me, and I will make you dayagim (fishers) of men. Mark 1:17 And Yehoshua (יהושע) said to them, Come you after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
