A Demon-Possessed Boy Healed

18 And Jesus reproved the demon and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was cured. 19 Afterward, when he was alone, the disciples went to Jesus and said to him, "Why could we not drive it out?" 20 He said to them, "Because you have so little faith. For I tell you, if you have faith the size of a grain of mustard, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here over to there!' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you."
