It happened, when Jesus returned, that the multitude welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
It happened on the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, that a great multitude met him.
For this cause also the multitude went and met him, because they heard that he had done this sign.

Great multitudes came to him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others, and they put them down at his feet. He healed them,
from Jerusalem, from Idumaea, beyond the Jordan, and those from around Tyre and Sidon. A great multitude, hearing what great things he did, came to him.
