1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
1 They arrived at the other side of the sea in the territory of the Gerasenes.
1 They came to the other side of the sea to the region of the Gerasenes.
2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
2 Just as Jesus stepped out of the boat, a man with an unclean spirit came out of the tombs and met him.
2 And as soon as He got out of the boat, there met Him out of the tombs a man [under the power] of an unclean spirit.
3 and he had his dwelling among the tombs. And no one was able to bind him anymore, even with a chain;
3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
3 He lived among the tombs, and no one could restrain him any longer, not even with a chain.
3 This man continually lived among the tombs, and no one could subdue him any more, even with a chain;
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.
4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
4 He had often been restrained with shackles and chains, but had snapped the chains apart and broken the shackles in pieces. No one could tame him.
4 For he had been bound often with shackles for the feet and handcuffs, but the handcuffs of [light] chains he wrenched apart, and the shackles he rubbed and ground together and broke in pieces; and no one had strength enough to restrain or tame him.
5 Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains, and gashing himself with stones.
5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
5 He kept screaming night and day among the tombs and on the mountainsides, and kept cutting himself with stones.
5 Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always shrieking and screaming and beating and bruising and cutting himself with stones.
6 Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;
6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and knelt down before Him.
6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell down in front of him,
6 And when from a distance he saw Jesus, he ran and fell on his knees before Him in homage,
7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
7 screaming in a loud voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you in the name of God never to torment me!"
7 And crying out with a loud voice, he said, What have You to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? [What is there in common between us?] I solemnly implore you by God, do not begin to torment me!
8 For He had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”
8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
8 Jesus had been saying to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!"
8 For Jesus was commanding, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
9 Then Jesus asked him, "What's your name?"
9 And He asked him, What is your name? He replied, My name is Legion, for we are many.
10 And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.
10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
10 And he kept begging Him not to send them out of the region.
10 He told him, "My name is Legion, because there are many of us." He kept pleading with Jesus not to send them out of that region.
10 And he kept begging Him urgently not to send them [himself and the other demons] away out of that region.
11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
11 Now a large herd of pigs was grazing on a hillside nearby.
11 Now a great herd of hogs was grazing there on the hillside.
12 The demons implored Him, saying, “Send us into the swine so that we may enter them.”
12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
12 So the demons begged him, "Send us among the pigs, so that we can go into them!"
12 And the demons begged Him, saying, Send us to the hogs, that we may go into them!
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.
13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
13 So he let them do this. The unclean spirits came out of the man and went into the pigs, and the herd of about 2,000 rushed down a steep slope into the sea and drowned there.
13 So He gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out [of the man] and entered into the hogs; and the herd, numbering about 2,000, rushed headlong down the steep slope into the sea and were drowned in the sea.
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.
14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
14 Now when those who had been taking care of the pigs ran away, they reported what had happened in the city and countryside. So the people went to see what had happened.
14 The hog feeders ran away, and told [it] in the town and in the country. And [the people] came to see what it was that had taken place.
15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
15 When they came to Jesus and saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there dressed and in his right mind, they were frightened.
15 And they came to Jesus and looked intently and searchingly at the man who had been a demoniac, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, [the same man] who had had the legion [of demons]; and they were seized with alarm and struck with fear.
16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.
16 The people who had seen it told them what had happened to the demon-possessed man and the pigs.
16 And those who had seen it related in full what had happened to the man possessed by demons and to the hogs.
18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
18 As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed kept begging Him to be with Him.
18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed kept begging him to let him go with him.
18 And when He had stepped into the boat, the man who had been controlled by the unclean spirits kept begging Him that he might be with Him.
19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
19 But Jesus wouldn't let him. Instead, he told him, "Go home to your family, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been to you."
19 But Jesus refused to permit him, but said to him, Go home to your own [family and relatives and friends] and bring back word to them of how much the Lord has done for you, and [how He has] had sympathy for you and mercy on you.
20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
20 So the man left and began proclaiming in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And everyone was utterly amazed.
20 And he departed and began to publicly proclaim in Decapolis [the region of the ten cities] how much Jesus had done for him, and all the people were astonished and marveled.
21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
21 When Jesus again had crossed to the other side in a boat, a large crowd gathered around him by the seashore.
21 And when Jesus had recrossed in the boat to the other side, a great throng gathered about Him, and He was at the lakeshore.
22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
22 Then a synagogue leader named Jairus arrived. When he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet
22 Then one of the rulers of the synagogue came up, Jairus by name; and seeing Him, he prostrated himself at His feet
23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
23 and begged him urgently, saying, "My little daughter is dying. Come and lay your hands on her so that she may get well and live."
23 And begged Him earnestly, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, so that she may be healed and live.
24 And He went off with him; and a large crowd was following Him and pressing in on Him.
24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.
24 So Jesus went with him, and a large crowd was following and pressing against Him.
24 So Jesus went with him. A huge crowd kept following him and jostling him.
24 And Jesus went with him; and a great crowd kept following Him and pressed Him from all sides [so as almost to suffocate Him].
25 A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years,
25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
25 Now there was a woman who had been suffering from chronic bleeding for twelve years.
25 And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years,
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—
26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
26 Although she had endured a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all of her money, she had not been helped at all, but rather grew worse.
26 And who had endured much suffering under [the hands of] many physicians and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse.
27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
27 Since she had heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his robe,
27 She had heard the reports concerning Jesus, and she came up behind Him in the throng and touched His garment,
28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
28 because she had been saying, "If I can just touch his robe, I will get well."
28 For she kept saying, If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health.
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
29 Her bleeding stopped at once, and she felt in her body that she was healed from her illness.
29 And immediately her flow of blood was dried up at the source, and [ suddenly] she felt in her body that she was healed of her [ distressing] ailment.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
30 Immediately Jesus became aware that power had gone out of him. So he turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"
30 And Jesus, recognizing in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around immediately in the crowd and said, Who touched My clothes?
31 And His disciples said to Him, “You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
31 His disciples said to Him, “You see the crowd pressing against You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
31 His disciples asked him, "You see the crowd jostling you, and yet you ask, "Who touched me?'"
31 And the disciples kept saying to Him, You see the crowd pressing hard around You from all sides, and You ask, Who touched Me?
32 And He looked around to see the woman who had done this.
32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
32 So He was looking around to see who had done this.
32 But he kept looking around to look at the woman who had done this.
32 Still He kept looking around to see her who had done it.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
33 So the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came forward fearfully, fell down trembling in front of him, and told him the whole truth.
33 But the woman, knowing what had been done for her, though alarmed and frightened and trembling, fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
34 He told her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed from your illness."
34 And He said to her, Daughter, your faith (your trust and confidence in Me, springing from faith in God) has restored you to health. Go in (into) peace and be continually healed and freed from your [ distressing bodily] disease.
35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?
35 While he was still speaking, some people came from the synagogue leader's home and said, "Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher anymore?"
35 While He was still speaking, there came some from the ruler's house, who said [to Jairus], Your daughter has died. Why bother and distress the Teacher any further?
36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
36 But when Jesus heard what they said, he told the synagogue leader, "Stop being afraid! Just keep on believing."
36 Overhearing but ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.
37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
37 Jesus allowed no one to go further with him except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
37 And He permitted no one to accompany Him except Peter and James and John the brother of James.
38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
38 They came to the leader’s house, and He saw a commotion—people weeping and wailing loudly.
38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw mass confusion. People were crying and sobbing loudly.
38 When they arrived at the house of the ruler of the synagogue, He looked [carefully and with understanding] at [the] tumult and the people weeping and wailing loudly.
39 And entering in, He *said to them, “Why make a commotion and weep? The child has not died, but is asleep.”
39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
39 He entered the house and asked them, "Why all this confusion and crying? The child isn't dead. She's sleeping."
39 And when He had gone in, He said to them, Why do you make an uproar and weep? The little girl is not dead but is sleeping.
40 They began laughing at Him. But putting them all out, He *took along the child’s father and mother and His own companions, and *entered the room where the child was.
40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
40 They laughed and laughed at him. But when he had driven all of them outside, he took the child's father and mother, along with the men who were with him, and went into the room where the child was.
40 And they laughed and jeered at Him. But He put them all out, and, taking the child's father and mother and those who were with Him, He went in where the little girl was lying.
41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
41 He took her by the hand and told her, "Talitha koum," which means, "Young lady, I tell you, get up!"
41 Gripping her [firmly] by the hand, He said to her, Talitha cumi -- "which translated is, Little girl, I say to you, arise [ from the sleep of death]!
42 Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded.

43 But Jesus strictly ordered them not to let anyone know about this. He also told them to give her something to eat.
43 And He strictly commanded and warned them that no one should know this, and He [ expressly] told them to give her [something] to eat.
