1And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.2And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,3Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:4Because 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.5And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.6But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,7And 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.8For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.9And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.10And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.11Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.12And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.13And 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.14And 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.15And 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.16And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.17And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.18And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.19Howbeit 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.20And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.21And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.22And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,23And 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.24And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.25And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,26And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,27When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.28For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.29And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.30And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?31And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?32And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.33But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.34And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.35While 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?36As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.37And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.38And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.39And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.40And 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.41And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.42And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.43And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

Jesus Heals a Man with a Demon
1They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes. (Mt 8:28; Lu 8:26)2And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.3He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain, (Re 18:2)4for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him.5Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out and cutting himself with stones.6And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him. (Mt 8:2)7And crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.” (Ge 14:18; Nu 24:16; Ps 57:2; Da 3:26; Mt 4:3; Mt 4:6; Mt 14:33; Mt 26:63; Mr 1:26; Lu 1:32; Lu 6:35; Ac 8:7; Ac 16:17; Ac 19:13; Jas 2:19)8For he was saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”9And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” He replied, “My name is Legion, for we are many.” (Mt 26:53)10And he begged him earnestly not to send them out of the country.11Now a great herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside,12and they begged him, saying, “Send us to the pigs; let us enter them.”13So he gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out and entered the pigs; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the sea.14The herdsmen fled and told it in the city and in the country. And people came to see what it was that had happened.15And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid. (Mr 5:9; Lu 8:27)16And those who had seen it described to them what had happened to the demon-possessed man and to the pigs.17And they began to beg Jesus to depart from their region. (Lu 5:8; Ac 16:39)18As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him.19And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” (Ps 66:16; Mr 1:44)20And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled. (Mt 4:25; Mr 7:31)
Jesus Heals a Woman and Jairus’s Daughter
21And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea.22Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet (Mt 9:18; Lu 8:41; Lu 13:14; Ac 13:15; Ac 18:8; Ac 18:17)23and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” (Mt 9:18; Mr 6:5; Mr 7:32; Mr 8:23; Mr 8:25; Mr 16:18; Lu 4:40; Lu 13:13; Ac 9:12; Ac 9:17; Ac 28:8)24And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. (Mr 3:9; Mr 5:31)25And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, (Le 15:25)26and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse.27She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment.28For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.”29And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. (Mt 15:28; Mt 17:18; Mr 3:10)30And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?” (Lu 5:17; Lu 6:19; Lu 8:46; Ac 10:38)31And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’”32And he looked around to see who had done it.33But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth.34And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.” (Mr 5:29; Lu 7:50)35While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” (Mr 5:22; Lu 7:6; Joh 11:28)36But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” (Mr 5:35)37And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. (Mr 3:17; Mr 9:2; Mr 14:33)38They came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and Jesus saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly.39And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.” (Joh 11:4; Joh 11:11; Ac 20:10)40And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was. (Ac 9:40)41Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” (Mt 11:5; Mr 1:31; Lu 7:14; Lu 7:22; Joh 11:43)42And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement.43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat. (Mt 8:4; Mr 9:9)
