5.16 Jesus knew1 their plans and left. Many followed him and he healed them all.2 Jesus and his disciples   withdrew to   the  seashore.   Crowds   from   Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, across the Jordan and around Tyre  and Sidon heard of his works3 and came to him. Because the crowds pressed against him, he asked the disciples to keep a small boat near, lest they crush him. Because he had healed many,4 those with diseases were falling over to touch him. Unclean spirits fell down before him, crying, “You are the Son of God.”

Mar 6 But he forbade their making him known. That the saying of prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled, “Behold My chosen servant, My beloved in whom My soul delights. I will put My Spirit on him and he will announce judgment to the world. He wont argue, shout or be heard in the streets. He wont break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick, until justice is victorious. In his name, will the world trust.”
