Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:1 - Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:2 - and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Mag'dalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:3 - and Joan'na, the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:4 - And when a great crowd came together and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable:

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:5 - "A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:6 - And some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:7 - And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew with it and choked it.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:8 - And some fell into good soil and grew, and yielded a hundredfold." As he said this, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:9 - And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:10 - he said, "To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but for others they are in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:11 - Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:12 - The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, that they may not believe and be saved.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:13 - And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy; but these have no root, they believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:14 - And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:15 - And as for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:16 - "No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, that those who enter may see the light.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:17 - For nothing is hid that shall not be made manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:18 - Take heed then how you hear; for to him who has will more be given, and from him who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:19 - Then his mother and his brothers came to him, but they could not reach him for the crowd.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:20 - And he was told, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see you."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:21 - But he said to them, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:22 - One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side of the lake." So they set out,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:23 - and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a storm of wind came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in danger.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:24 - And they went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves; and they ceased, and there was a calm.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:25 - He said to them, "Where is your faith?" And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that he commands even wind and water, and they obey him?"

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:26 - Then they arrived at the country of the Ger'asenes, which is opposite Galilee.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:27 - And as he stepped out on land, there met him a man from the city who had demons; for a long time he had worn no clothes, and he lived not in a house but among the tombs.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:28 - When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him, and said with a loud voice, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beseech you, do not torment me."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:29 - For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many a time it had seized him; he was kept under guard, and bound with chains and fetters, but he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the desert.)

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:30 - Jesus then asked him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Legion"; for many demons had entered him.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:32 - Now a large herd of swine was feeding there on the hillside; and they begged him to let them enter these. So he gave them leave.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:33 - Then the demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:34 - When the herdsmen saw what had happened, they fled, and told it in the city and in the country.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:35 - Then people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:36 - And those who had seen it told them how he who had been possessed with demons was healed.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:37 - Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Ger'asenes asked him to depart from them; for they were seized with great fear; so he got into the boat and returned.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:38 - The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but he sent him away, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:39 - "Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you." And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:43 - And a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years and could not be healed by any one,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:44 - came up behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment; and immediately her flow of blood ceased.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:45 - And Jesus said, "Who was it that touched me?" When all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the multitudes surround you and press upon you!"

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:46 - But Jesus said, "Some one touched me; for I perceive that power has gone forth from me."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:47 - And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:48 - And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace."

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:49 - While he was still speaking, a man from the ruler's house came and said, "Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the Teacher any more."
