1They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.1They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes.1They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes.1And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.1Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gerasenes.
2When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him.2And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.2When He got out of the boat, immediately a man from the tombs with an unclean spirit met Him,2And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,2As soon as He got out of the boat, a man with an unclean spirit came out of the tombs and met Him.
3This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain.3He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain,3and he had his dwelling among the tombs. And no one was able to bind him anymore, even with a chain;3Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:3He lived in the tombs. No one was able to restrain him anymore--even with chains--
4For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.4for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him.4because he had often been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him and the shackles broken in pieces, and no one was strong enough to subdue him.4Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.4because he often had been bound with shackles and chains, but had snapped off the chains and smashed the shackles. No one was strong enough to subdue him.

5Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.5Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out and cutting himself with stones.5Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains, and gashing himself with stones.5And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.5And always, night and day, he was crying out among the tombs and in the mountains and cutting himself with stones.
6When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.6And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him.6Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;6But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,6When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and knelt down before Him.
7He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God's name don't torture me!"7And crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.”7and shouting with a loud voice, he said, "What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!"7And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.7And he cried out with a loud voice, "What do You have to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You before God, don't torment me!"
8For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you impure spirit!"8For he was saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”8For He had been saying to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!"8For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.8For He had told him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!"
9Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."9And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” He replied, “My name is Legion, for we are many.”9And He was asking him, "What is your name?" And he said to Him, "My name is Legion; for we are many."9And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.9"What is your name?" He asked him." My name is Legion," he answered Him, "because we are many."

10And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.10And he begged him earnestly not to send them out of the country.10And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.10And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.10And he kept begging Him not to send them out of the region.
11A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.11Now a great herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside,11Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain.11Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.11Now a large herd of pigs was there, feeding on the hillside.
12The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them."12and they begged him, saying, “Send us to the pigs; let us enter them.”12The demons implored Him, saying, "Send us into the swine so that we may enter them."12And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.12The demons begged Him, "Send us to the pigs, so we may enter them."
13He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.13So he gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out and entered the pigs; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the sea.13Jesus gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.13And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. 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.13And He gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits came out and entered the pigs, and the herd of about 2,000 rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned there.
14Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened.14The herdsmen fled and told it in the city and in the country. And people came to see what it was that had happened.14Their herdsmen ran away and reported it in the city and in the country. And the people came to see what it was that had happened.14And 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.14The men who tended them ran off and reported it in the town and the countryside, and people went to see what had happened.

15When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.15And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid.15They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the "legion"; and they became frightened.15And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.15They came to Jesus and saw the man who had been demon-possessed by the legion, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
16Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man--and told about the pigs as well.16And those who had seen it described to them what had happened to the demon-possessed man and to the pigs.16Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon-possessed man, and all about the swine.16And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.16The eyewitnesses described to them what had happened to the demon-possessed man and told about the pigs.
17Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.17And they began to beg Jesus to depart from their region.17And they began to implore Him to leave their region.17And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.17Then they began to beg Him to leave their region.
18As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him.18As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him.18As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him.18And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.18As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed kept begging Him to be with Him.
19Jesus did not let him, but said, "Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you."19And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”19And He did not let him, but He said to him, "Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you."19Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.19But He would not let him; instead, He told him, "Go back home to your own people, and report to them how much the Lord has done for you and how He has had mercy on you."
20So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.20And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled.20And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed.20And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.20So he went out and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and they were all amazed.
