Now huge crowds were going along with [Jesus], and He turned and said to them,
And Jesus went with him; and a great crowd kept following Him and pressed Him from all sides [so as almost to suffocate Him].
Now Jesus, when He saw the great throngs around Him, gave orders to cross to the other side [of the lake].
And [Jesus] left there [Capernaum] and went to the region of Judea and beyond [east of] the Jordan; and crowds [constantly] gathered around Him again, and as was His custom, He began to teach them again.
Now it occurred that while the people pressed upon Jesus to hear the message of God, He was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret (Sea of Galilee).
And great crowds joined and accompanied Him about, coming from Galilee and Decapolis [the district of the ten cities east of the Sea of Galilee] and Jerusalem and Judea and from the other [the east] side of the Jordan.
When Jesus came down from the mountain, great throngs followed Him.
When Jesus heard it, He withdrew from there privately in a boat to a solitary place. But when the crowds heard of it, they followed Him [by land] on foot from the towns.
And great throngs accompanied Him, and He cured them there.
And as they were going out of Jericho, a great throng accompanied Him.
And Jesus retired with His disciples to the lake, and a great throng from Galilee followed Him. Also from Judea And from Jerusalem and Idumea and from beyond the Jordan and from about Tyre and Sidon -- "a vast multitude, hearing all the many things that He was doing, came to Him.
But when the crowds learned of it, [they] followed Him; and He welcomed them and talked to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed restoration to health.
And there accompanied [Jesus] a great multitude of the people, [including] women who bewailed and lamented Him.
And a great crowd was following Him because they had seen the signs (miracles) which He [continually] performed upon those who were sick.
And when Jesus had recrossed in the boat to the other side, a great throng gathered about Him, and He was at the lakeshore.
And when a very great throng was gathering together and people from town after town kept coming to Jesus, He said in a parable:
Now as the crowds were [increasingly] thronging Him, He began to say, This present generation is a wicked one; it seeks and demands a sign (miracle), but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah [the prophet].
For he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. As [Jesus] went, the people pressed together around Him [almost suffocating Him].
And Jesus said, Who is it who touched Me? When all were denying it, Peter and those who were with him said, Master, the multitudes surround You and press You on every side!
And a crowd was sitting around Him, and they said to Him, Your mother and Your brothers and Your sisters are outside asking for You.
Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and His disciples and a great throng accompanied Him.
And when they came to the [nine] disciples, they saw a great crowd around them and scribes questioning and disputing with them.
And the disciples said to Him, Where are we to get bread sufficient to feed so great a crowd in this isolated and desert place?
And He commanded the multitude to recline upon the ground, and He [then] took the seven loaves [of bread] and, having given thanks, He broke them and kept on giving them to His disciples to put before [the people], and they placed them before the crowd.
And most of the crowd kept spreading their garments on the road, and others kept cutting branches from the trees and scattering them on the road.
And the crowds that went ahead of Him and those that followed Him kept shouting, Hosanna ( O be propitious, graciously inclined) to the Son of David, [ the Messiah]! Blessed (praised, glorified) is He Who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna (O be favorably disposed) in the highest [heaven]!
And the crowds replied, This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee.
She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she came up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment,
And all the multitude were seeking to touch Him, for healing power was all the while going forth from Him and curing them all [ saving them from severe illnesses or calamities].
Now there gathered together to [Jesus] the Pharisees and some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem,
Then they came to Jericho. And as He was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a great crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, a son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside.
And hearing a crowd going by, he asked what it meant.
[Just] as He drew near the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out -- "the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large gathering from the town was accompanying her.
Now the invalid who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had quietly gone away [had passed on unnoticed], since there was a crowd in the place.
