One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and
spent the night praying to God. 13 When morning came, he called his
disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated
apostles: 14 Simon (whom he named Peter), his brother Andrew, James,
John, Philip, Bartholomew, 15 Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus,
Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 Judas son of James, and Judas
Iscariot, who became a traitor. 17 He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples
was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around
Tyre and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits
were cured, 19 and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.
