The Gerasene Demoniac

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:2 - And immediately on his going out of the ship there met him out of the tombs a man possessed by an unclean spirit,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:3 - who had his dwelling in the tombs; and no one was able to bind him, not even with chains;

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
