1 And they came over unto the other side of the seainto thecountry of the Gadarenes.

2 And when he was come out of the shipimmediately there methim out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit

3 Who had his dwelling among the tombsand no man could bindhimnonot with chains

4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains and the chains had been plucked asunder by himand thefetters broken in piecesneither could any man tame him.

5 And alwaysnight and dayhe was in the mountainsand in thetombscryingand cutting himself with stones.

6 But when he saw Jesus afar offhe ran and worshipped him

7 And cried with a loud voiceand saidWhat have I to do withtheeJesusthou Son of the most high GodI adjure thee byGodthat thou torment me not.

8 For he said unto himCome out of the manthou uncleanspirit.

9 And he asked himWhat is thy nameAnd he answeredsayingMy name is Legionfor we are many.

10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away outof the country.

11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd ofswine feeding.

12 And all the devils besought himsayingSend us into theswinethat we may enter into them.

13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spiritswent outand entered into the swineand the herd ranviolently down a steep place into the sea they were abouttwo thousand and were choked in the sea.

14 And they that fed the swine fledand told it in the cityandin the country. And they went out to see what it was that wasdone.

15 And they come to Jesusand see him that was possessed withthe deviland had the legionsittingand clothedand inhis right mindand they were afraid.

16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that waspossessed with the deviland also concerning the swine.

17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

18 And when he was come into the shiphe that had been possessedwith the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him notbut saith unto himGo home tothy friendsand tell them how great things the Lord hath donefor theeand hath had compassion on thee.

20 And he departedand began to publish in Decapolis how greatthings Jesus had done for himand all men did marvel.

21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the othersidemuch people gathered unto himand he was nigh unto thesea.

22 Andbeholdthere cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue Jairus by nameand when he saw himhe fell at his feet

23 And besought him greatlysayingMy little daughter lieth atthe point of deathI pray theecome and lay thy hands onherthat she may be healedand she shall live.

24 And Jesus went with himand much people followed himandthronged him.

25 And a certain womanwhich had an issue of blood twelve years

26 And had suffered many things of many physiciansand had spentall that she hadand was nothing betteredbut rather grewworse

27 When she had heard of Jesuscame in the press behindandtouched his garment.

28 For she saidIf I may touch but his clothesI shall bewhole.

29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried upandshe felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

30 And Jesusimmediately knowing in himself that virtue had goneout of himturned him about in the pressand saidWhotouched my clothes

31 And his disciples said unto himThou seest the multitudethronging theeand sayest thouWho touched me

32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

33 But the woman fearing and tremblingknowing what was done inhercame and fell down before himand told him all thetruth.

34 And he said unto herDaughterthy faith hath made theewholego in peaceand be whole of thy plague.

35 While he yet spakethere came from the ruler of thesynagogue s house certain which saidThy daughter is dead why troublest thou the Master any further

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spokenhe saith untothe ruler of the synagogueBe not afraidonly believe.
