Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:1 - They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:2 - When He got out of the boat, immediately a man from the tombs with an unclean spirit met Him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:3 - and he had his dwelling among the tombs. And no one was able to bind him anymore, even with a chain;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:4 - because he had often been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him and the shackles broken in pieces, and no one was strong enough to subdue him.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:5 - Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains, and gashing himself with stones.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:6 - Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:7 - and shouting with a loud voice, he *said,[fn]What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!”
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:8 - For He had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:9 - And He was asking him, “What is your name?” And he *said to Him, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:10 - And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:11 - Now there was a large herd of swine feeding [fn]nearby on the mountain.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:12 - The demons implored Him, saying, “Send us into the swine so that we may enter them.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:13 - Jesus gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:14 - Their herdsmen ran away and reported it in the city and in the country. And the people came to see what it was that had happened.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:15 - They *came to Jesus and *observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the “legion”; and they became frightened.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:16 - Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon-possessed man, and all about the swine.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:17 - And they began to implore Him to leave their region.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:18 - As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might [fn]accompany Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:19 - And He did not let him, but He *said to him, “Go home to your people and report to them [fn]what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:20 - And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis [fn]what great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:25 - A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:26 - and had endured much at the hands of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:27 - after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His [fn]cloak.
