Matthew 8

And as he descended from the mountain, great multitudes gathered around him. And behold, a leper came and worshipped him, and said: My Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus stretched forth his hand, touched him, and said: I will: be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus said to him, See, thou tell no man: but go, show thyself to the priests, and present an oblation as Moses enjoined, for a testimony to them. And when Jesus had entered into Capernaum, a centurion came to him, and besought him, and said: My Lord, my child lieth at home an is paralytic, and badly afflicted. Jesus said to him, I will come and heal him. The centurion replied, and said: My Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my child will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, and there are soldiers under my hands, and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this thing, and he doeth it. 10 And when Jesus heard this, he admired it; and he said to those walking with him, Verily I say to you, I have not found faith like this even in Israel. 11 And I say to you, that many shall come from the east, and from the west, and shall recline with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven; 12 but the children of the kingdom shall go forth into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said to the centurion. Go; be it to thee as thou hast believed. And his child was cured in that same hour. 14 And Jesus came to the house of Simon and saw his wife's mother prostrate, confined by a fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose and ministered to them. 16 And when it was evening, they brought many demoniacs before him; and he expelled their demons by a word, and healed all them that were diseased: 17 that so might be fulfilled that which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, who said: He will bear our sorrows, and our infirmities he will take upon him. 18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes, around him, he ordered that they should go to the site shore. 19 And a Scribe came and said to him: Rabbi, I will follow thee to the place whither thou goest. 20 Jesus said to him, For foxes there are holes, and for the birds of heaven there are nests; but for the Son of man, there is not where he may recline his head. 21 And another of his disciples said to him: My Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus said to him: Follow thou me, and leave the dead to bury their dead. 23 And when Jesus entered the ship, his disciples embarked with him. 24 And lo, a great commotion arose in the sea, so that the vessel was covered by the waves. But Jesus was asleep: 25 and his disciples came to awake him, and said to him: Our Lord, deliver us; we are perishing! 26 Jesus said to them, Why are ye afraid, ye small in faith! Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the sea; and there was great tranquillity. 27 And the men were amazed; and they said, What a man is this, to whom the winds and the sea are obedient! 28 And when Jesus arrived at the farther shore, in the country of the Gadarenes, there met him two demoniacs, who came out from the sepulchres, very furious, so that no one could pass that way. 29 And they cried out, and said: What have we to do with thee? Jesus, thou Son of God. Hast thou come hither before the time to torment us? 30 And at a distance from them there was a herd of many swine feeding 31 And the demons entreated of him, and said: If thou cast us out, suffer us to go into the herd of swine. 32 And Jesus said to them, Go ye. And immediately they came out, and entered into the swine; and that whole herd ran straight to a precipice and plunged into the sea, and perished in the waters. 33 And the herdsmen fled, and entered the city, and related all that had occurred, and concerning the demoniacs. 34 And all the city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him to retire from their coasts.
