/3:7/ Jesus departed with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him; /3:8/ hearing all that he was doing, they came to him in great numbers from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, beyond the Jordan, and the region around Tyre and Sidon. /3:9/ He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him; /3:10/ for he had cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him.

= Matt 4:24-25
/4:24/ So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought to him all the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and he cured them. /4:25/ And great crowds followed him from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.

= Luke 6:17-19
/6:17/ He came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon. /6:18/ They had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. /6:19/ And all in the crowd were trying to touch him, for power came out from him and healed all of them.
