Casting out a legion of demons
they came to the other aside
of the sea, into the region of the bGerasenes
when He came out of the boat, aimmediately
, from out of the tombs, a man with an bunclean
spirit met Him,
had his dwelling among the 1tombs
. And no one could bind him any longer, not even with a chain,
he had often been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him, and the shackles smashed, and no one was strong enough to subdue him.
continually night and day, among the tombs and in the mountains, he cried out and gashed himself with stones.
when he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and aworshipped
crying out with a aloud
do I have to do bwith
You, Jesus, Son of the cMost
High God? I dadjure
You by God, do not torment me!
He had said to him, Come out of the man, unclean 1spirit
He questioned him, What is your name? And he said to Him, aLegion
is my name, because we are many.
he entreated Him much not to send them out of the region.
there on the mountainside was a great herd of hogs feeding.
entreated Him, saying, Send us to the hogs, so that we may enter into them.
gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out and entered into the hogs, and the herd, about two thousand, rushed down the steep slope into the sea, and they were drowned in the sea.
those who were feeding them fled and reported it
in the city and in the countryside. And they came to see what had happened.
they came to Jesus and saw the demon possessed man sitting down, clothed, and sane, the man who had had the alegion
, and they became frightened.
those who had seen it
related to them how it had happened to the demon possessed man and concerning the hogs.
they began to entreat Him to adepart
from their borders.
as He got into the boat, the man who had been demon possessed begged Him that he might stay with Him.
He did not allow him, but said to him, Go to your house, to your own people,
and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how
He has had mercy on you.
he departed and began to proclaim in 1aDecapolis
what great things Jesus had done for him, and all marveled.
Healing the woman with a flow of blood and raising up a dead girl
when Jesus had acrossed
over again in the boat to the other bside
, a great crowd gathered to Him, and He was beside the sea.
of the brulers
of the synagogue came, Jairus by name, and seeing Him, fell at His feet;
he entreated Him much, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death. Please come and alay
Your hands on her that she may be 1healed
He went with him, and a great crowd followed Him and apressed
a 1woman was there,
who had a aflow
of blood for btwelve

she heard the things concerning Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him
she said, If I touch even His garments, I will be 1healed
the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she knew in her body that she was cured of the baffliction
immediately Jesus, realizing in Himself that 1apower
had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, Who btouched
His disciples said to Him, You see the crowd 1apressing
upon You and You say, Who touched Me?
He looked around to see her who had done this.
the woman, 1frightened
and trembling, knew what had happened to her, and she came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
He said to her, 1Daughter
, your afaith
you. Go 3in bpeace
and be 4well
from your affliction.
He was still speaking, some
came from the house of
of the synagogue, saying, Your daughter has died. Why bbother
the Teacher any longer?
the word spoken, said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not be afraid — only believe.
He did not allow anyone to accompany Him except aPeter
and James and bJohn
the brother of James.
they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and He saw a commotion and people
weeping and wailing greatly.
He entered in and said to them, Why do you make a commotion and weep? The child has not died but is asleeping

hold of the child's hand and said to her, 1Talitha
