1 AND they came across the lake to the country of the Gerasenes. 2 And as he went out of the ship, a man with an impure spirit immediately met him from the tombs, 3 who lived in the tombs, and none could bind him with a chain; 4 for he was often bound with fetters and chains, and his chains were broken by him, and his fetters crushed, and no one could subdue him. 5 And he was always night and day in the tombs, and in the mountains, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
6 And seeing Jesus at a distance, he ran and worshipped him, 7 and crying with a loud voice, said, What have you to do with me, Jesus, son of the most high God? I adjure you, by God, not to torment me. 8 For he said to him, Impure spirit, come out of the man.
9 And he asked him, What is your name? And he said to him, My name is Legion, for we are many. 10 And they besought him much that he would not send them out of the country.
11 And there was there on the mountain a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And they besought him, saying, Send us to the swine, that we may go into them. 13 And Jesus immediately permitted them. And the impure spirits going out entered into the swine, and the herd rushed down a precipice into the lake, about two thousand, and were drowned in the lake. 14 And those who fed them fled and told it in the city and in the country; and they came out to see what was done. 15 And they came to Jesus, and saw the demoniac who had the legion, sitting down, clothed, and in his right mind, and they were afraid. 16 And those who saw related to them how it had been with the demoniac, and concerning the swine. 17 And they besought him to depart from their bounds.
18 And entering into the ship, the man that had been a demoniac besought him that he might go with him; 19 and he permitted him not, but said to him, Go to your home, to your friends, and relate to them what the Lord has done for you, and what mercy he has shown you. 20 And he went away and proclaimed in the Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him; and all wondered.
21 And Jesus having crossed again in the ship to the other side, a great multitude came together to him; and he was by the lake. 22 And one of the synagogue rulers came, Jairus by name, and seeing him, fell at his feet, 23 and besought him much, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death; come and lay hands on her, that she may be restored, and she shall live.
24 And he went away with him; and a great multitude followed him, and thronged him. 25 And a certain woman having a hemorrhage of twelve years, 26 and having taken many things by many physicians, and expended all her property, and not being benefited, but rather growing worse, 27 hearing of Jesus, came in the crowd behind him and touched his clothes. 28 For she said, If I can touch his clothes I shall be cured. 29 And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she knew in herself that she was cured of the plague.
30 And Jesus immediately knowing in himself that a power had gone out from him, turning round in the crowd said, Who touched my clothes?
31 And his disciples said to him, You see the multitude throng you, and do you say, Who touched me?
32 And he looked round to see her that had done this. 33 And the woman being afraid, and trembling, knowing what was done to her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has cured you; go in peace, and be well of your plague.
35 And while he was yet speaking persons came from the house of the synagogue ruler, saying, Your daughter is dead; why trouble the teacher?
36 And Jesus hearing the word spoken, said to the synagogue ruler, Fear not, only believe. 37 And he permitted no man to accompany him except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And they came to the house of the synagogue ruler, and saw the tumult, and the people weeping and lamenting much. 39 And he went in and said to them, Why do you make a tumult and weep? the little child is not dead, but sleeps.
40 And they derided him. And putting them all out, he took the father and mother of the little child, and those with him, and went in where the little child was; 41 and taking the hand of the little child, he said to her, Talitha cum, which is interpreted, Girl, I tell you arise; 42 and immediately the girl arose and walked about, for she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with great astonishment. 43 And he charged them strictly that no one should know it, and directed that food should be given her.
