Why does the spelling look unusual?
Then he called his twelue disciples together, and gaue them power and authority ouer all deuils, and to cure diseases.
And hee sent them to preach the Kingdome of God, and to heale the sicke.
And he said vnto them, Take nothing for your iourney, neither staues, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money, neither haue two coates apeece.
And whatsoeuer house yee enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
And whosoeuer will not receiue you, when ye goe out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feete, for a testimonie against them.
And they departed, and went through the townes, preaching the Gospel, and healing euery where.
∂ Now Herode the Tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and hee was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that Iohn was risen from the dead:
And of some, that Elias had appeared: and of others, that one of the olde Prophets was risen againe.
And Herode said, Iohn haue I beheaded: but who is this of whom I heare such things? And hee desired to see him.
∂ And the Apostles when they were returned, tolde him all that they had done. And hee tooke them, and went aside priuately into a desert place, belonging to the citie called Bethsaida.
And the people when they knew it, followed him, and he receiued them, and spake vnto them of the kingdome of God, and healed them that had need of healing.
And when the day beganne to weare away, then came the twelue, and said vnto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the townes and countrey round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.
But he said vnto them, Giue yee them to eate. And they said, Wee haue no more but fiue loaues and two fishes, except we should goe and buy meate for all this people.
For they were about fiue thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit downe by fifties in a company.
And they did so, and made them all sit downe.
Then he tooke the fiue loaues and the two fishes, and looking vp to heauen, hee blessed them, and brake, and gaue to the disciples to set before the multitude.
And they did eate, and were all filled. And there was taken vp of fragments that remained to them, twelue baskets.
∂ And it came to passe, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?
They answering, said, Iohn the Baptist: but some say, Elias: and others say, that one of the old Prophets is risen againe.
He said vnto them, But whom say yee that I am? Peter answering, said, The Christ of God.
And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing,
Saying, The Sonne of man must suffer many things, and be reiected of the Elders, and chiefe Priests, and Scribes, and be slaine, and be raised the third day.
∂ And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him denie himselfe, and take vp his crosse daily, and follow me.
For whosoeuer will saue his life, shall lose it: but whosoeuer will lose his life for my sake, the same shall saue it.
For what is a man aduantaged, if hee gaine the whole world, and lose himselfe, or be cast away?
For whosoeuer shall bee ashamed of me, and of my wordes, of him shall the Sonne of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his owne glory, and in his Fathers, and of the holy Angels.
But I tell you of a trueth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdome of God.
∂ And it came to passe, about an eight dayes after these sayings, hee tooke Peter, and Iohn, and Iames, and went vp into a mountaine to pray:
And as hee prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
And behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias,
Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease, which he should accomplish at Hierusalem.
But Peter, and they that were with him, were heauie with sleepe: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.
And it came to passe, as they departed from him, Peter said vnto Iesus, Master, it is good for vs to be here, and let vs make three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.
While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and ouershadowed them, & they feared, as they entred into the cloude.
And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloued Son, heare him.
And when the voyce was past, Iesus was found alone, and they kept it close, & told no man in those dayes any of those things which they had seene.
∂ And it came to passe, that on the next day, when they were come downe from the hill, much people met him.
And behold, a man of the companie cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee looke vpon my sonne, for he is mine onely child.
And loe, a spirit taketh him, and hee suddenly crieth out, and it teareth him that he fometh againe, and bruising him, hardly departeth from him.
And I besought thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not.
And Iesus answering, said, O faithlesse, and peruerse generation, how long shal I be with you, and suffer you? bring thy sonne hither.
And as he was yet a comming, the deuill threw him downe, and tare him: and Iesus rebuked the vncleane spirit, and healed the child, and deliuered him againe to his father.
∂ And they were al amazed at the mightie power of God: But while they wondred euery one at all things which Iesus did, he said vnto his disciples,
Let these sayings sinke downe into your eares: for the Sonne of man shall bee deliuered into the handes of men.
But they vnderstood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceiued it not: and they feared to aske him of that saying.
∂ Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.
And Iesus perceiuing þe thought of their heart, tooke a child, and set him by him,
And said vnto them, Whosoeuer shall receiue this child in my Name, receiueth me: and whosoeuer shal receiue me, receiueth him that sent me: For hee that is least among you all, the same shalbe great.
∂ And Iohn answered, and said, Master, we saw one casting out deuils in thy Name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with vs.
And Iesus said vnto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against vs, is for vs.
∂ And it came to passe, when the time was come that he should bee receiued vp, he stedfastly set his face to goe to Hierusalem,
And sent messengers before his face, and they went and entred into a village of the Samaritanes to make ready for him.
And they did not receiue him, because his face was as though he would goe to Hierusalem.
And when his disciples, Iames and Iohn sawe this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that wee command fire to come downe from heauen, and consume them, euen as Elias did?
But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what maner spirit ye are of.
For the Sonne of man is not come to destroy mens liues, but to saue them. And they went to another village.
∂ And it came to passe that as they went in the way, a certaine man said vnto him, Lord, I wil follow thee whithersoeuer thou goest.
And Iesus said vnto him, Foxes haue holes, and birds of the aire haue nests, but the Sonne of man hath not where to lay his head.
And he said vnto another, Follow me: But he said, Lord, suffer mee first to goe and bury my father.
Iesus said vnto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdome of God.
And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee: but let me first goe bid them farewel, which are at home at my house.
And Iesus said vnto him, No man hauing put his hand to the plough, and looking backe, is fit for the kingdome of God.

Follow Jesus daily, there will be times when things are not right, and you know this is not Godís way for you; yet still trust God in all ways, the good, the bad and the ugly.

I believe that this verse has not yet been fully understood. To say come after me, and then say follow me is redundant. After much meditation and prayer about this particular scripture, it was revealed to me by the Holy Spirit, that what our Lord is saying is "if any man will be my successor in the earth, let him deny himself and live as I lived".

@ doris comment on verse 28-36: 1. these verses is giving the reader a glimpse at the great tribulation period and 2nd advent as we find in mathew 17:1-13. 2. these two witnesses can also be found in revelation 11:3-12. 3. as you read the revelation account of these witnesses you will notice verse 6 will give a detail description of identification of who they are from the old testament account of the miracles they performed. 4. in revelation 11:4 the 2 olive trees represents the miracle of eternal life (olive oil=holy spirit), and the 2 candlesticks represents the true church (revelation 1:20) that is responsible for giving out the gospel of salvation.

I am 92 years old, Looking back on life God has enabled us to do allthings through Christ our LORD, Prayer faith is what it takes,
This is the answer. You receive not because you ask not, ask anything in my nam you will receive it. Blessed be the Lord.
