5 And they came unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes.
2 And when he went forth out of the boat [straightway] there met him from amongst the tombs a man in an impure spirit:
3 who had his dwelling among the tombs, and not even with a chain any longer was anyone able to bind him,—
4 because of his having been many times with fetters and chains bound, and the chains having been plucked asunder by him and the fetters smashed, and no one was mighty enough to tame him;
5 and continually, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains was he crying aloud and cutting himself in pieces with stones.
6 And seeing Jesus from afar he ran and bowed down to him;
7 and crying out with a loud voice saith—What have I in common with thee, O Jesus, Son of God Most High? I adjure thee by God,—Do not torment me!
8 For he was saying to him—Go forth thou impure spirit, out of the man;
9 and he was questioning him—What is thy name? and he saith to him—Legion is my name, because we are many;
10 and he was beseeching him much that he would not send them forth outside the country.
11 Now there was there near the mountain a large herd of swine, feeding;
12 and they besought him saying—Send us into the swine, that into them we may enter;
13 and he suffered them. And the impure spirits going out entered into the swine, and the herd rushed down the cliff into the sea about two thousand, and were choked in the sea.
14 And they who had been feeding them fled, and bare tidings into the city and into the fields,—and they came to see what it was that had happened.
15 And they come unto Jesus, and view the demonized man clothed and of sound mind, him who had had the legion,—and they were struck with fear.
16 And the beholders narrated to them, how it happened to the demonized man and concerning the swine.
17 And they began to beseech him to depart from their bounds.
18 And as he was entering into the boat he who had been demonized was beseeching him, that with him he might be.
19 And he suffered him not, but saith unto him—Withdraw into thy house unto thine own, and bear tidings unto them how many things the Lord for thee hath done, and hath had mercy on thee.
20 And he departed, and began proclaiming in the Decapolis how many things Jesus had done for him,—and all were marvelling.
21 And Jesus crossing over in the boat again unto the other side there was gathered a large multitude unto him, and he was by the lake.
22 And there cometh one of the synagogue-rulers by name Jairus, and seeing him falleth at his feet,
23 and beseecheth him much saying—My little daughter is at her last!—that coming thou wouldest lay thy hands upon her, that she may be made well and live;
24 and he departed with him. And there was following him a large multitude, and they were pressing upon him.
25 And a woman who had had a flow of blood twelve years,
26 and suffered much from many physicians, and spent all her means and profited nothing,—but had rather become worse
27 hearing the things about Jesus came in the crowd from behind and touched his mantle;
28 for she was saying—If I can touch so much as his mantle I shall be made well;
29 and straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she knew in her body that she was healed from the plague.
30 And straightway Jesus taking note in himself of the power which out of him went forth turning round in the crowd was saying—Who hath touched my garments?
31 and his disciples were saying to him—Thou seest the crowd pressing upon thee,—and sayest thou—Who hath touched me?
32 and he was looking round to see her who this thing had done.
33 And the woman overcome with fear and trembling, knowing what had happened to her came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34 And he said to her—Daughter! thy faith hath made thee well: Withdraw into peace, And be whole from thy plague.
35 While yet he is speaking they come from the synagogue-ruler’s, saying—Thy daughter is dead! Why further annoy the teacher?
36 But Jesus overhearing the word being spoken saith unto the synagogue-ruler—Do not fear, only have faith!
37 And he suffered no one to follow with him, save Peter and James and John the brother of James.
38 And they come into the house of the synagogue-ruler, and he observeth a tumult and persons weeping and wailing greatly;
39 and entering he saith unto them—Why are ye making a tumult, and weeping? The child is not dead, but is sleeping;
40 and they were deriding him. But he thrusting all forth taketh with him the father of the child and the mother, and them who were with him,—and entereth where the child was;
41 and grasping the hand of the child he saith unto her—Talitha, koum! which is when translated—O damsel! to thee I say, Arise!
42 And straightway the damsel arose, and was walking about; for she was twelve years of age. And they were beside themselves straightway with a great transport;
43 and he commanded them again and again, that no one should get to know this thing,—and bade that food should be given her to eat.
