The Demons and the Pigs
(Matthew 8:28–34; Luke 8:26–39)

1And they came beyond the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes, 2And a man from the tombs, with an unclean spirit met Him, having come out of the ship; 3who had his dwelling among the tombs: neither was any one able to bind him with chains; 4because frequently he had been bound with fetters and chains, and the chains were slipped off by him, and the fetters torn to pieces. 5No one was able to tame him: and all the time, night and day, he was among the tombs in the mountains, crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6And seeing Jesus a great way off, he ran to Him, and worshiped Him; 7and crying with a loud voice, he says, What is there to me and to thee, O Jesus, thou Son of the Most High God? I adjure thee in the name of God, that you may not torment me. 8For He said to him, Unclean spirit, come out from the man. 9And He asked him, What is thy name? And he says to Him, My name is Legion; because we are many. 10And he continued to intreat Him much, that He would not send them out of the country. 11And there was a great herd of swine feeding in the mountain. 12And they intreated Him, saying, Send us into the swine, in order that we may go into them. 13And Jesus immediately permitted them. And the unclean spirits having gone out, came into the swine: and the herd rushed down a precipice into the sea, and there were about two thousand: and they were strangled in the sea.

14And those herding them fled, and reported in the city, and in the country. And they came out to see what it was that came to pass. 15And they come to Jesus, and see the demonized man sitting down, both clothed and in his right mind, the one called Legion; and they were afraid. 16And those seeing, related to them how it happened to the demonized man and concerning the swine. 17And they began to intreat Him to depart from their coasts. 18And He having come to the ship, the demonized man intreated Him that he should be with Him. 19And He did not permit him, but says to him, Go to thine own house to thy people, and proclaim to them how many things the Lord has done for thee, and had mercy on thee. 20And he went away, and began to preach in Decapolis, how many things Jesus did to him. And all were astonished.

The Healing Touch of Jesus
(Matthew 9:18–26; Luke 8:40–56)

21And Jesus crossing over in the ship again to the other side, a great multitude was gathered unto Him; and He was by the sea. 22And one of the chief rulers of the synagogue, by name jairus, comes; and seeing Him falls at His feet, 23and intreats Him much saying, My little daughter is at the point of death: that coming He may lay hands on her, in order that she may be saved and live. 24And He departed with him; and a great multitude followed Him, even treading on Him.

25And a certain woman, being in an issue of blood twelve years, 26and having suffered much from many physicians, and expended all things which were with her, and being profited as to nothing, but rather having come to the worse, 27hearing concerning Jesus, having come in the crowd behind, touched His garment. 28For she was saying, If I may touch His garment, I shall be saved. 29And immediately the issue of her blood was dried up: and she knew in her body that she is healed of her plague. 30And immediately Jesus, knowing in Himself that the powerhas gone out from Him, turning in the crowd, said, Who touched my garments? 31And His disciples continued to say to Him, You see the crowd treading upon you, and you say, Who touched me? 32And He looked round to see her who did it. 33And the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what has taken place unto herself, came and fell down before Him, and told Him the whole truth. 34And He said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

35And He still speaking, they come from the house of the chief ruler of the synagogue, saying, Thy daughter is dead: why do you still trouble the Teacher? 36And Jesus, immediately hearing the word spoken, says to the chief ruler, Fear not, only believe. 37and He did not permit any one to accompany Him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And He comes into the house of the chief ruler of the synagogue; And He sees a tumult, weeping and wailing much; 39and having come in, He says to them, Why are you excited and weeping? The child is not dead, but sleepeth. 40And they hooted at Him. And putting them all out, He takes the father and mother of the child and those with Him, and goes in where the child was. 41And taking the child by the hand, says to her, Talitha cumi; which is interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise. 42And immediately the damsel stood up, and walked about; for she was twelve years old. And they were immediately delighted with great delight. 43And He charged them much that no one should know it; and He said that something should be given to her to eat.
