They stopped on a level place and there gathered together many of his disciples and very many people who’d come from villages in Judea and there from the town of Jerusalem, and they had come from the towns of Tyre and Sidon, which is on the shore of the sea. The reason the people had come was they wanted to hear the teaching of Jesus, and they wanted to be healed by him, of their diseases.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

The majority/large-number of those Jesus was teaching were there and very many other people too, coming from all the area of Judea, including the city of Jerusalem, and coming also from the towns of Tiro and Sidon which were beside the Mediteraneo Sea. They were there because they wanted to listen to the teaching of Jesus, and those who had illnesses were asking help that they would be healed.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
