And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
For when he had been often bound with fetters and chains, he had burst the chains, and broken the fetters, and no one could tame him.
And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
But when he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and worshipped him,
And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the most high God? I adjure you by God, that you don't torment me.
For he said to him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit.
And he asked him, What is your name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
Now there was there near to the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
And Jesus allowed it to them. 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.
And 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.
And they come to Jesus, and saw him that was possessed with the devil, and that used to have the legion inside of him, sitting, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
And those who had witnessed the incident told them what had happened to the possessed, and what was done with the pigs.
Then people began to ask him to go away from their borders.
And when he had come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
However Jesus didn't allow him, but said to him, Go home to your friends, and tell them how great things the Lord has done for you, and has had compassion on you.
And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men marveled.
And when Jesus was passed over again by ship to the other side, much people gathered to him: and he was close to the sea.
And, behold, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lies at the point of death: I pray you, come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, who pressed in on him.
And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be healed.
And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
And his disciples said to him, You see the multitude pressing in on you, and you say, Who touched me?
And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace, and be whole of your plague.
While he yet spoke, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Your daughter is dead: why trouble the Master any further?
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he said to the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
And he allowed no man to follow him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
And he came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
And when he had come in, he said to them, Why do you wail and weep? The girl is not dead but asleep.
Then they sneered at him. But when he had put them all out, he took with him only the girl's father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the damsel was lying.
And he took the damsel by the hand, and said to her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say to you, arise.
And immediately the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
And he commanded them strictly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
And he called to him the twelve, and began to send them out by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
And the apostles gathered themselves together to Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
And he said to them, Come you with me away to a deserted place, where we get to be alone, and rest you a little bit: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
And the people saw them going and many got to know it; and from all the cities where people flocked together there by land and arrived before them.
And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came to him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
He answered and said to them, Give you them to eat. And they say to him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?
He said to them, How many loaves have you? go and see. And when they knew, they said, Five, and two fishes.
And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
And they did all eat, and were filled.
And they took up twelve baskets full of the leftover pieces of bread, and of the fishes.
And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before to Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.
And when he had sent them away, he departed to a mountain to pray.
And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.
And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary to them: and about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed by them.
But when they saw him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a spirit, and cried out:
For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and said to them, Be of good cheer: it is I; don't be afraid.
And he went up to them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
And when they had come out of the ship, immediately they knew him,
And ran through that whole region round about, and the people began to carry about the sick on beds where they heard he was.
And wherever he went, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and asked him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why don't your disciples walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?
He answered and said to them, Well has Esaias prophesied about you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do.
There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
And he said, That which comes out of the man, defiles the man.
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
And they brought to him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they asked him to put his hand upon him.
And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;
And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.
And immediately his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plain.
And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He has done all things well: he makes both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
And when he had called the people to him with his disciples also, he said to them, Whoever want to follow me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whoever wants to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, but loses his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
And he said to them, Truly I say to you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste death, untill they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
And after six days Jesus took with him Peter, and James, and John, and lead them up on a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
And there appeared to them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
For he didn't know what to say; for they were very afraid.
And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, except Jesus only with themselves.
And as they came down from the mountain, he commanded them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, untill the Son of man were risen from the dead.
