And when Jesus saw that a crowd was quickly gathering around him, he subdued the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter into him again.” Bible see other translations

“subdued.” The Greek word translated “subdued” is epitimaō (#2008 ἐπιτιμάω). In this context, epitimaō has a technical meaning: it is used in Greek religion of gaining control over a spirit, a demon (see commentary on Mark 1:25).
