1And they came to the other side of the lake, into the region of the Gerasenes.
2And when he had come out of the boat, immediately a man from the tombs with an unclean spirit met him,
3who had his dwelling in the tombs, and no one was able to bind him any more, not even with a chain,
4because he had often been bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him, and the fetters broken in pieces, and no one had the strength to subdue him.
5And always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out and cutting himself with stones.
6And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed before him,
7and crying out with a loud voice, he says, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I demand that you swear under oath by God that you will not torment me.”
8For he said to him, “Come out of the man you unclean spirit.”
9And he asked him, “What is your name?” And he says to him, “My name is Legion, for we are many.”
10And he kept on earnestly begging him that he would not send them away out of the region.
11Now there was there on the mountainside a large herd of pigs feeding.
12And they begged him, saying, “Send us into the pigs. Let us enter into them.”
13And he allowed them. And the unclean spirits came out and went into the pigs, and the herd, about 2,000 in number, rushed down the steep slope into the lake, and they were drowned in the lake.
14And the herdsmen fled and reported it in the city and in the countryside. And they came to see what it was that had come to pass.
15And they came to Jesus and saw the one who had been afflicted by a demon (he who had the “Legion”), sitting, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid.
16And those who saw it described to them what had happened to him who had been afflicted by a demon, and also about the pigs.
17And they began to beg him to depart from their region.
18And as he was entering into the boat, he who had been afflicted by the demon kept begging him to be with him.
19And he did not allow him to, but says to him, “Go to your house, to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he had mercy on you.”
20And he went his way and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone was amazed.
21And when Jesus had crossed over again in the boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered around him, and he was by the lake.
22And one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name, and seeing him, fell at his feet,
23and kept earnestly begging him, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come, put your hands on her so that she will be made well and live!”
24And he went with him, and a great multitude followed him, and they pressed in on him.
25And a woman who had a discharge of blood for 12 years,
26and had suffered many things by many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was not any better, but rather grew worse,
27when she heard about Jesus, came in the crowd behind him and touched his garment,
28for she was saying, “If I just touch his garments, I will be healed.”
29And immediately the flow of her blood dried up, and she knew in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
30And immediately Jesus, knowing in himself that power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd, and said, “Who touched my garments?”
31And his disciples said to him, “You see the multitude pressing in on you, and you say, ‘Who touched me?’”
32And he looked around to see who had done it.
33Now the woman, being afraid and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34And he said to her, “Daughter, your trust has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
35While he was still speaking, they come from the ruler of the synagogue’s house saying, “Your daughter has died. Why trouble the teacher any further?”
36But Jesus, ignoring the word spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid, only believe.”
37And he allowed no one to follow with him except Peter, and James, and John (the brother of James).
38And they come to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and he sees a commotion, and many crying and wailing loudly.
39And when he had entered in, he says to them, “Why are you making a commotion and crying? The child did not die, but is sleeping.”
40And they laughed at him, but he, having put them all outside, took the father of the child, and her mother, and those who were with him, and went in where the child was.
41And taking the child by the hand, he says to her, “Talitha koum” (which being translated means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up.”).
42And immediately the little girl got up and began to walk, for she was 12 years old. And immediately they were amazed and greatly bewildered.
43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and he said that something should be given her to eat.
