|| Matthew 9:36
MK6:30 Now the apostles rejoined Jesus and told him everything, both what they had done and what they had taught. MK6:31 Then Jesus said to them: “All of you come way [with me] to a private spot in a place of solitude and then get a little rest.” For there were many people coming and going and they had no leisure time to even eat. MK6:32 So they left in their boat for a lonely place for some privacy. MK6:33 However, some people saw them leaving and recognized them, so they ran on foot from all the villages [[and got there ahead of them]]. MK6:34 Now when Jesus went ashore and saw so many people he was moved with compassion, because they were all like sheep without a shepherd. So he began to teach them many things.
