Mark 5

And he came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes. And as he went out of the ship, there met him from the place of sepulchres a man in whom was an unclean spirit. And he dwelt in the place of sepulchres; and no one could confine him with chains: because, as often as he had been confined with fetters and chains, he had broken the chains and burst the fetters: and no one could subdue him. And continually, by night and by day, he was in the place of sepulchres, and cried and wounded himself with stones. And when he saw Jesus at a distance, he ran and worshipped him; and cried with a loud voice, and said: What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the High God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he had said to him: Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he demanded of him: What is thy name? And he replied to him: Our name is Legion; for we are many. 10 And he besought him much, that he would not send him out of the country. 11 And there was there by the mountain, a great herd of swine grazing. 12 And the demons besought him, and said: Send us upon those swine, that we may enter them. 13 And he permitted them. And those unclean spirits went out, and entered the swine: and the herd, of about two thousand, ran to a precipice, and fell into the sea, and were strangled in the waters. 14 And they who tended them, fled and told it in the city and in the villages: and they came out to see what had occurred. 15 And: they came to Jesus, and saw him in whom the demons had been, him in whom had been the legion, clothed, and sober, and sitting; and they were afraid. 16 And those who had seen it told them how it occurred to him who had the demons, and also concerning the swine. 17 And they began to request him, that he would go from their border. 18 And as he ascended the ship, the late demoniac requested that he might continue with him. 19 And he suffered him not, but said to him: Go home to thy people, and tell them what the Lord hath done for thee, and hath compassionated thee. 20 And he went, and began to publish in Decapolis, what Jesus had done for him. And they were all amazed. 21 And when Jesus had passed by ship to the other side, great multitudes again assembled about him as he was on the shore of the sea. 22 And one of the rulers of the synagogue, whose name was Jairus, came, and, on seeing him, fell at his feet, 23 and besought him much, and said to him: My daughter is very sick; but come and lay thy hand on her, and she will be cured, and will live. 24 And Jesus went with him; and a great company attended him, and pressed upon him. 25 And a woman who had had a defluxion of blood twelve years, 26 and who had suffered much from many physicians, and had expended all she possessed, and was not profited, but was even the more afflicted; 27 when she heard of Jesus, came behind him in the press of the crowd, and touched his garment 28 For she said: If I but touch his garment, I shall live. 29 And immediately the fountain of her blood dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her plague. 30 And Jesus at once knew in himself, that virtue had issued from him: and he turned to the throng, and said: Who touched my clothes? 31 And his disciples said to him: Thou seest the throngs that press upon thee; and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32 And he looked around, to see who had done this. 33 And the woman, fearing and trembling, for she knew what had taken place in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said to her: My daughter, thy faith hath made thee live: go in peace; and be thou healed of thy plague. 35 And while he was speaking, some domestics of the ruler of the synagogue came, and said: Thy daughter is dead: why therefore troublest thou the teacher? 36 But Jesus heard the word they spoke, and said to the ruler of the synagogue: Fear not; only believe. 37 And he suffered no one to go with him, except Simon Cephas, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he saw, that they were in a tumult, and weeping, and howling. 39 And he entered in and said to them: Why are ye in a tumult, and weep? The maid is not dead, but is asleep. 40 And they laughed at him. But Jesus put them all out. And he took the maids father, and her mother, and those that accompanied him, and entered into where the maid lay. 41 And he took the maid's hand, and said to her: Maiden, arise. 42 And immediately the maid arose, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And he enjoined it upon them much, that no one should know of it. And he directed, that they should give her to eat.
