Now when Jesus saw large crowds around him, he gave the order to depart to the other side.
And on that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go over to the other side."
Now it happened on one of those days, that he entered into a boat, himself and his disciples, and he said to them, "Let us go over to the other side of the lake." So they launched out.
And immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and to go ahead of him to the other side, while he sent the crowds away.
Jesus therefore, perceiving that they were about to come and take him by force, to make him king, withdrew again to the mountain by himself.
And early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there.
And when Jesus had crossed back over in the boat to the other side, a great crowd was gathered to him; and he was by the sea.
And immediately he made his disciples get into the boat, and to go ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he himself sent the crowd away.
When it was day, he departed and went into an uninhabited place, and the crowds looked for him, and came to him, and held on to him, so that he would not go away from them.
