Mark 3:7-12
7 But Jesus withdrew with His disciples to the sea. And a great multitude from Galilee followed Him, and from Judea 8 and Jerusalem and Idumea and beyond the Jordan; and those from Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they heard how many things He was doing, came to Him. 9 So He told His disciples that a small boat should be kept ready for Him because of the multitude, lest they should crush Him. 10 For He healed many, so that as many as had afflictions pressed about Him to touch Him. 11 And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, “You are the Son of God.” 12 But He sternly warned them that they should not make Him known.


When they heard about / were hearing about all the things Jesus was doing, many people / a vast number of people came to Him from Judea, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and from the regions across the Jordan / beyond the Jordan and around Tyre and Sidon.

Because of the crowd / many people, Jesus told His disciples to have a small boat stand ready for Him to keep the people from crowding Him / so that they would not crowd Him.

Since Jesus had healed many, those with diseases / those who had diseases were pushing forward / were pressing around Him to touch Him.
