1 And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And as he came out of the boat, there met him immediately out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs, and no man could bind him, no not with chains. 4 For he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder, by him, and the fetters broken in pieces; and no man could tame him. 5 And always night and day, he was in the tombs, and in the mountains, crying and cutting himself with stones.
6 But seeing Jesus afar off, he ran and worshiped him, And crying with a loud voice, 7 said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. 8 (For he had said to him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.)
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered saying, My name is Legion; for we are many. 10 And he earnestly besought him, that he would not send them away out of the country.
11 Now there was there at the mountain a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us to the swine, that we may go into them. 13 And Jesus forthwith gave them leave. And the unclean spirits going out, entered into the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep into the sea, (they were about two thousand) and were choked in the sea. 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see that which was done. 15 And they come to Jesus and see the demoniac, sitting and clothed and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 16 And they saw it told them how it befell that demoniac, and also concerning the swine. 17 And they prayed him to depart out of their coasts.
18 And as he went into the boat, he that had been possessed with the devils, besought him, that he might be with him. 19 But Jesus suffered him not, but said to him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20 And he departed and published in Decapolis, how great things Jesus had done for him. And all men marvelled.
21 And when Jesus was passed over again by boat to the other side, much people was gathered to him, and he was near the sea. 22 And there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, falleth at his feet. 23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death:
24 come and lay thy hands on her that she may be healed, and she shall live. And he went with him, and much people followed him and thronged him. 25 And a certain woman who had had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, 26 and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, 27 but rather grown worse, Having heard of Jesus, came in the croud behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, If I but touch his clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And the fountain of her blood was straightway dried up, and she knew in her body, that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus immediately knowing in himself, that virtue had gone out of him, turning about in the croud said, Who touched my clothes?
31 And his disciples said to him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
32 And he looked round to see her that had done this. 33 And the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said to her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole: go in peace, and continue whole of thy plague.
35 While he yet spake, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master farther?
36 When Jesus heard the word spoken he saith to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not; only believe. 37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth a tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. 39 And coming in, he saith to them, Why make ye this ado and weep? The damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
40 And they laughed him to scorn. But having put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and goeth in where the damsel was lying. 41 And taking the damsel by the hand he said to her, Talitha cumi, which is, being interpreted, Damsel, (I say to thee) arise. 42 And straightway the damsel arose and walked: for she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And he charged them straitly, that no man should know it, and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
