New International Version
For Jesus had commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
For he had commanded the unclean spirit to go out from the man. For very often it had seized him; and he had been bound, kept with chains and fetters; and breaking the bonds he was driven by the demon into the deserts.

Young's Literal Translation

Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "Legion," he replied, because many demons had gone into him.
