The Gerasene Demoniac

(Mat 8:28–9:1; Luk 8:26–39 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:1 - And they came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gadarenes,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:2 - and he having come forth out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:3 - who had his dwelling in the tombs, and not even with chains was any one able to bind him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:4 - because that he many times with fetters and chains had been bound, and pulled in pieces by him had been the chains, and the fetters broken in pieces, and none was able to tame him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:5 - and always, night and day, in the mountains, and in the tombs he was, crying and cutting himself with stones.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:6 - And, having seen Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed before him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:7 - and having called with a loud voice, he said, 'What -- to me and to thee, Jesus, Son of God the Most High? I adjure thee by God, mayest thou not afflict me!'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:8 - (for he said to him, 'Come forth, spirit unclean, out of the man,')
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:9 - and he was questioning him, 'What is thy name?' and he answered, saying, 'Legion is my name, because we are many;'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:10 - and he was calling on him much, that he may not send them out of the region.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:11 - And there was there, near the mountains, a great herd of swine feeding,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:12 - and all the demons did call upon him, saying, 'Send us to the swine, that into them we may enter;'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:13 - and immediately Jesus gave them leave, and having come forth, the unclean spirits did enter into the swine, and the herd did rush down the steep place to the sea -- and they were about two thousand -- and they were choked in the sea.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:14 - And those feeding the swine did flee, and told in the city, and in the fields, and they came forth to see what it is that hath been done;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:15 - and they come unto Jesus, and see the demoniac, sitting, and clothed, and right-minded -- him having had the legion -- and they were afraid;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:16 - and those having seen it, declared to them how it had come to pass to the demoniac, and about the swine;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:17 - and they began to call upon him to go away from their borders.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:18 - And he having gone into the boat, the demoniac was calling on him that he may be with him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:19 - and Jesus did not suffer him, but saith to him, 'Go away to thy house, unto thine own friends, and tell them how great things the Lord did to thee, and dealt kindly with thee;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:20 - and he went away, and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how great things Jesus did to him, and all were wondering.

Miracles and Healing

(Mat 9:18–26; Luk 8:40–56 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:21 - And Jesus having passed over in the boat again to the other side, there was gathered a great multitude to him, and he was near the sea,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:22 - and lo, there doth come one of the chiefs of the synagogue, by name Jairus, and having seen him, he doth fall at his feet,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:23 - and he was calling upon him much, saying -- 'My little daughter is at the last extremity -- that having come, thou mayest lay on her thy hands, so that she may be saved, and she shall live;'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:24 - and he went away with him. And there was following him a great multitude, and they were thronging him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:25 - and a certain woman, having an issue of blood twelve years,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:26 - and many things having suffered under many physicians, and having spent all that she had, and having profited nothing, but rather having come to the worse,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:27 - having heard about Jesus, having come in the multitude behind, she touched his garment,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:28 - for she said -- 'If even his garments I may touch, I shall be saved;'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:29 - and immediately was the fountain of her blood dried up, and she knew in the body that she hath been healed of the plague.
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:30 - And immediately Jesus having known in himself that out of him power had gone forth, having turned about in the multitude, said, 'Who did touch my garments?'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:31 - and his disciples said to him, 'Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and thou sayest, 'Who did touch me!'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:32 - And he was looking round to see her who did this,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:33 - and the woman, having been afraid, and trembling, knowing what was done on her, came, and fell down before him, and told him all the truth,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:34 - and he said to her, 'Daughter, thy faith hath saved thee; go away in peace, and be whole from thy plague.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:35 - As he is yet speaking, there come from the chief of the synagogue's house, certain, saying -- 'Thy daughter did die, why still dost thou harass the Teacher?'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:36 - And Jesus immediately, having heard the word that is spoken, saith to the chief of the synagogue, 'Be not afraid, only believe.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:37 - And he did not suffer any one to follow with him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:38 - and he cometh to the house of the chief of the synagogue, and seeth a tumult, much weeping and wailing;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:39 - and having gone in he saith to them, 'Why do ye make a tumult, and weep? the child did not die, but doth sleep;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:40 - and they were laughing at him. And he, having put all forth, doth take the father of the child, and the mother, and those with him, and goeth in where the child is lying,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:41 - and, having taken the hand of the child, he saith to her, 'Talitha cumi;' which is, being interpreted, 'Damsel (I say to thee), arise.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:42 - And immediately the damsel arose, and was walking, for she was twelve years old; and they were amazed with a great amazement,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 5:43 - and he charged them much, that no one may know this thing, and he said that there be given to her to eat.
