And he told his disciples to p have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, lest they q crush him,
for r he had healed many, so that all who had s diseases pressed around him t to touch him.
u And whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they v fell down before him and cried out, "You are w the Son of God."
And x he strictly ordered them not to make him known.
