8:1 When he had come down from the mountain, great multitudes
8:2 And behold, there came a leper and worshiped him, saying,
Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
8:3 And Jesus put forth [his] hand, and touched him, saying, I
will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
8:4 And Jesus saith to him, See thou tell no man; but go, show
thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded,
for a testimony to them.
8:5 And when Jesus had entered into Capernaum, there came to him
a centurion, beseeching him,
8:6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick with the
palsy, grievously tormented.
8:7 And Jesus saith to him, I will come and heal him.
8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that
thou shouldst come under my roof: but speak the word only, and
my servant will be healed.
8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me:
and I say to this [man], Go, and he goeth; and to another,
Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth
8:10 When Jesus heard [it], he marveled, and said to them that
followed, Verily I say to you, I have not found so great faith,
no, not in Israel.
8:11 And I say to you, that many shall come from the east and
the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob
in the kingdom of heaven.
8:12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into
utter darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
8:13 And Jesus said to the centurion, Depart; and as thou hast
believed, so be it done to thee. And his servant was healed in
the same hour.
8:14 And when Jesus had come into Peter's house, he saw his
wife's mother laid, and sick with a fever.
8:15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she
arose, and ministered to them.
8:16 When the evening was come, they brought to him many that
were possessed with demons: and he cast out the spirits with
[his] word, and healed all that were sick;
8:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the
prophet, saying, He himself took our infirmities, and bore
8:18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave
commandment to depart to the other side.
8:19 And a certain scribe came, and said to him, Master, I will
follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
8:20 And Jesus saith to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds
of the air [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where to
lay [his] head.
8:21 And another of his disciples said to him, Lord, suffer me
first to go and bury my father.
8:22 But Jesus said to him, Follow me; and let the dead bury
8:23 And when he had entered into a boat, his disciples followed
8:24 And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea,
insomuch that the boat was covered with the waves: but he was
8:25 And his disciples came to [him], and awoke him, saying,
Lord, save us: we perish.
8:26 And he saith to them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little
faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and
there was a great calm.
8:27 But the men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and the sea obey him!
8:28 And when he had come to the other side, into the country of
the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with demons, coming
out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass
by that way.
8:29 And behold, they cried out, saying, What have we [to do]
with thee, Jesus, [thou] Son of God? art thou come hither to
torment us before the time?
8:30 And there was a good way off from them a herd of many
8:31 So the demons besought him, saying, If thou expellest us,
suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
8:32 And he said to them, Go. And when they had come out, they
went into the herd of swine: and behold, the whole herd of
swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and
perished in the waters.
8:33 And they that kept them, fled, and went into the city, and
