Context Readings

A Demon-Possessed Gerasene Healed

2 And [as] he was getting out of the boat, immediately from the tombs a man with an unclean spirit went to meet him, 3 who {lived} among the tombs. And no one was able to bind him any longer, not 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 had been shattered. And no one was strong [enough] to subdue him.
