And all the Multitude of the Gadarenes Entreated Him to Depart from Them...
[1] [888] And all the multitude of the Gadarenes entreated him to depart from them, because that great fear took hold upon them.

[2, 3] [889] But Jesus went up into the ship, and crossed, and came to his city. [890] And that man from whom the devils went out entreated that he might stay with him; but [4] Jesus sent him away, and said unto him, [891] Return to thy house, and make known what [5] God hath done for thee. [892] And he went, and began to publish in Decapolis [893] what Jesus had done for him; and they all marvelled.

[6] [894] And when Jesus had crossed in the ship to that side, a great multitude received [7] him; and they were all looking for him. [895] And a man named Jairus, the chief of the [8] synagogue, fell before the feet of Jesus, [896] and besought him much, and said unto him, I have an only daughter, and she is come nigh unto death; [897] but come and lay thy [9] hand upon her, and she shall live. [898] And Jesus rose, and his disciples, and they followed [10] him. [899] And there joined him a great multitude, and they pressed him.

[11, 12] [900] And a woman, which had a flow of blood for twelve years, [901] had suffered much of many physicians, and spent all that she had, and was not benefited at all, but her [13] trouble increased further. [902] And when she heard of Jesus, she came in the thronging of [14] [Arabic, p.47] the crowd behind him, and touched [903] his garments; [904] and she thought within [15] herself, If I could reach to touch his garments, I should live. [905] And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried; and she felt in her body that she was healed [16] of her plague. [906] And Jesus straightway knew within himself that power had gone out of him; and he turned to the crowd, and said, Who approached unto my garments? [17] [907] And on their denying, all of them, Simon Cephas and those with him said unto him, Our Master, the multitudes throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who approached [18] unto me? [908] And he said, Some one approached unto me; and I knew that [19] power went forth from me. [909] And that woman, when she saw that she was not hid [20] from him, came fearing and agitated (for she knew what had happened to her), [910] and fell down and worshipped him, and told, in the presence of all the people, for what [21] reason she touched him, and how she was healed immediately. [911] And Jesus said unto her, Be of good courage, daughter; thy faith hath made thee alive; depart in peace, and be whole from thy plague.

[22] [912] And while he was yet speaking, there came a man from the house of the chief of the synagogue, and said unto him, Thy daughter hath died; so trouble not the [23] teacher. [913] But Jesus heard, and said unto the father of the maid, Fear not: but believe [24] only, and she shall live. [914] And he suffered no man to go with him, except [25] Simon Cephas, and James, and John the brother of James. [915] And they reached the house of the chief of the synagogue; and he saw them agitated, weeping and wailing. [26] [916] And he entered, and said unto them, Why are ye agitated and weeping? the [27] [Arabic, p.48] maid hath not died, but she is sleeping. [917] And they laughed at him, for [28] they knew that she had died. [918] And he put every man forth without, and took the father of the maid, and her mother, and Simon, and James, and John, and [29] entered into the place where the maid was laid. [919] And he took hold of the hand of the maid, and said unto her, Maid, arise. [920] And her spirit returned, and straightway [30] she arose and walked: [921] and she was about twelve years of age. [922] And he commanded [31] that there should be given to her something to eat. [923] And her father wondered greatly: [32] and he warned them that they should tell no man what had happened. [924] And this report spread in all that land.

[33] [925] And when Jesus crossed over from there, there joined him two blind men, crying [34] out, and saying, Have mercy on us, thou son of David. [926] And when he came to the house, those two blind men came to him: and Jesus said unto them, Believe ye [35] that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, our Lord. [927] Then he touched [928] [36] their eyes, and said, As ye have believed, it shall be unto you. [929] And immediately their eyes were opened. And Jesus forbade them, and said, See that no man know. [37] [930] But they went out and published the news in all that land.

[38] [931] And when Jesus went out, they brought to him a dumb man having a devil. [39] [932] And on the going out of the devil that dumb man spake. And the multitudes marvelled, and said, It was never so seen in Israel

[40] [933] And Jesus was going about in all the cities and in the villages, and teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease [41] [Arabic, p.49] and sickness; and many followed him. [934] And when Jesus saw the multitudes, he had compassion on them, for they were wearied and scattered, [935] as sheep [42] that have no shepherd. [936] And he called his twelve disciples, and gave them power and [43] much authority over all devils and diseases; [937] and sent them two and two, that they [44] might proclaim the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. [938] And he charged them, and said, Walk not in the way of the heathen, nor enter into the cities of the Samaritans. [939] [45, 46] [940] Go especially unto the sheep that are lost of the sons of Israel. [941] And [47] when ye go, proclaim and say, The kingdom of heaven is come near. [942] And heal the sick, and cleanse the lepers, and cast out the devils: freely ye have received, freely [48, 49] give. [943] Get you not gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses; [944] and take nothing for the way, except a staff only; nor bag, nor bread; neither shall ye have two tunics, [50] nor shoes, nor staff, but be shod with sandals; [945] for the labourer is worthy of his food. [51] [946] And whatever city or village ye enter, inquire who is worthy in it, and there be until [52, 53] ye go out. [947] And when ye enter into the house, ask for the peace of the house: and if the house is worthy, your peace shall come upon it; [948] but if it is not worthy, your [54] peace shall return unto you. [949] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your sayings, when ye go out from that house, or from that village, shake off the dust [55] [Arabic, p.50] that is under your feet against them for a testimony. [950] And verily I say unto you, To the land of Sodom and Gomorrah there shall be rest in the day of judgement, rather than to that city.
