When Jesus came down from the mountain, large crowds followed Him. 2
And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean. 3
Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, I am willing; be cleansed. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4
And Jesus said to him, See that you tell no one; but go, show yourself to the priest and present the offering that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.
5 And when Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, imploring Him, 6 and saying, Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented. 7 Jesus said to him, I will come and heal him. 8 But the centurion said, Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, Go! and he goes, and to another, Come! and he comes, and to my slave, Do this! and he does it. 10 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel. 11 I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven; 12 but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said to the centurion, Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed. And the servant was healed that very moment.
When He had completed all His discourse in the hearing of the people, He went to Capernaum.
2 And a centurions slave, who was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die. 3 When he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders asking Him to come and save the life of his slave. 4 When they came to Jesus, they earnestly implored Him, saying, He is worthy for You to grant this to him; 5 for he loves our nation and it was he who built us our synagogue. 6 Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof; 7 for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8 For I also am a man placed under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, Go! and he goes, and to another, Come! and he comes, and to my slave, Do this! and he does it. 9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith. 10 When those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.
