Berean Literal Bible
The Demons and the Pigs
1And they came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gerasenes.a 2And of Him having gone forth out of the boat, immediately out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit met Him, 3who had the dwelling in the tombs. And no longer was anyone able to bind him, not even with chains, 4because he often had been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn in two by him, and the shackles had been shattered, and no one was able to subdue him. 5And constantly all night and day in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out and cutting himself with stones.
6And having seen Jesus from afar, he ran and fell on his knees before Him. 7And having cried in a loud voice, he said, “What to me and to You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure You by God, do not torment me.” 8For He was saying to him, “You come forth out of the man, unclean spirit!”
9And He was asking him, “What is your name?”
And he answered saying, “My name is Legion, because we are many.” 10And he begged Him numerous times that He would not send them out of the country.
13And He allowed them. And the unclean spirits having gone out, entered into the pigs, and the herd—about two thousand—rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and they were drowned in the sea.
14And those feeding them fled and proclaimed it to the city and to the country. And they went out to see what it is that has been done. 15And they come to Jesus and see the man possessed by demons sitting, clothed and sound minded—the one having had the legion—and they were afraid. 16And those having seen it related to them how it happened to the one being possessed by demons, and concerning the pigs. 17And they began to implore Him to depart from their region.
18And He having entered into the boat, the one having been possessed by demons was begging Him that he might be with Him. 19And He did not permit him, but He says to him, “Go to your home, to your own, and preach to them how much the Lord did for you and had mercy on you.”
The Healing Touch of Jesus
21And Jesus having passed over again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd was gathered to Him, and He was beside the sea. 22And one of the synagogue rulers comes, named Jairus, and having seen Him, falls at His feet, 23and he begs Him much, saying, “My little daughter is holding at the end, that having come, You would lay the hands on her, so that she might be cured, and she shall live.”
24And He departed with him. And a great crowd was following Him and pressing in on Him. 25And a woman, being with a flux of blood twelve years, 26and having suffered much under many physicians and having spent everything of hers, and having benefited in no way, but rather to the worse having come, 27having heard concerning Jesus, having come up in the crowd behind, she touched His clothing. 28For she was saying, “If I shall touch even His garments, I will be healed.” 29And immediately her flow of blood was dried up, and she knew in the body that she was healed from the affliction.
30And immediately Jesus, having known in Himself the power having gone forth out of Him, having turned in the crowd, said, “Who touched My garments?”
31And His disciples were saying to Him, “You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
32And He was looking around to see the one having done this. 33And the woman, having been frightened and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came and fell down before Him, and told Him the whole truth.
34And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you; go in peace and be sound from your affliction.”
35While yet He is speaking, they come from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying, “Your daughter is dead; why do you trouble the Teacher still?”
36But Jesus, having heard the word spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear; only believe.” 37And He did not allow anyone 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 beholds a commotion, and much weeping and wailing. 39And having entered, He says to them, “Why do you make a commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeps.” 40And they were laughing at Him.
And He, having put all outside, takes with Him the father and the mother of the child, and those with Him, and enters in where the child was.
41And having taken the hand of the child, He says to her, “Talitha, koum!” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise!”
42And immediately the girl arose and began walking, for she was twelve of years. And immediately they were overcome with great amazement.
43And He instructed them strictly that no one should know this; and He commanded to be given to her to eat.
