Mark 5
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And they came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gadarenes, 2and He having come forth out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3who had his dwelling in the tombs, and not even with chains was anyone able to bind him, 4because that many times he had been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been pulled in pieces by him, and the shackles broken in pieces, and none was able to tame him, 5and always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying and cutting himself with stones. 6And having seen Jesus from afar, he ran and prostrated to Him, 7and having called with a loud voice, he said, “What [regards] me and You, Jesus, Son of God the Most High? I adjure You by God, may You not afflict me!” 8For He said to him, “Come forth, unclean spirit, out of the man!” 9And He was questioning him, “What [is] your name?” And he answered, saying, “Legion [is] my name, because we are many”; 10and he was calling on Him much, that He may not send them out of the region. 11And there was there, near the mountains, a great herd of pigs feeding, 12and all the demons called on Him, saying, “Send us to the pigs, that into them we may enter”; 13and immediately Jesus gave them leave, and having come forth, the unclean spirits entered into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep place to the sea—and they were about two thousand—and they were choked in the sea.

14And those feeding the pigs fled, and told in the city, and in the fields, and they came forth to see what it is that has been done; 15and they come to Jesus, and see the demoniac, sitting, and clothed, and right-minded—him having had the legion—and they were afraid; 16and those having seen [it], declared to them how it had come to pass to the demoniac, and about the pigs; 17and they began to call on Him to go away from their borders. 18And He having gone into the boat, the demoniac was calling on Him that he may be with Him, 19and Jesus did not permit him, but says to him, “Go away to your house, to your own [friends], and tell them how the LORD did great things to you, and dealt kindly with you”; 20and he went away, and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how Jesus did great things to him, and all were wondering.

21And Jesus having passed over in the boat again to the other side, there was gathered a great multitude to Him, and He was near the sea, 22and behold, there comes one of the chiefs of the synagogue, by name Jairus, and having seen Him, he falls at His feet, 23and he was calling on Him much, saying, “My little daughter is at the last extremity—that having come, You may lay on her [Your] hands, so that she may be saved, and she will live”; 24and He went away with him. And there was following Him a great multitude, and they were thronging Him,

25and a certain woman, being with a flow of blood [for] twelve years, 26and having suffered many things under many physicians, and having spent all that she had, and having profited nothing, but rather having come to the worse, 27having heard about Jesus, having come in the multitude behind, she touched His garment, 28for she said, “If I may even touch His garments, I will be saved”; 29and immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she knew in the body that she has been healed of the plague. 30And immediately Jesus having known in Himself that power had gone forth out of Him, having turned in the multitude, said, “Who touched My garments?” 31And His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, Who touched Me!” 32And He was looking around to see her who did this, 33and the woman, having been afraid, and trembling, knowing what was done on her, came, and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth, 34and He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you; go away in peace, and be whole from your plague.”

35As He is yet speaking, there come from the chief of the synagogue’s [house, certain], saying, “Your daughter died, why do you still harass the Teacher?” 36And Jesus immediately, having heard the word that is spoken, says to the chief of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid, only believe.” 37And He did not permit anyone to follow with Him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James; 38and He comes into the house of the chief of the synagogue, and sees a tumult, much weeping and wailing; 39and having gone in He says to them, “Why do you make a tumult, and weep? The child did not die, but sleeps”; 40and they were laughing at Him. And He, having put all forth, takes the father of the child, and the mother, and those with Him, and goes in where the child is lying, 41and having taken the hand of the child, He says to her, “Talitha cumi”; which is, being interpreted, “Girl (I say to you), arise.” 42And immediately the girl arose, and was walking, for she was twelve years [old]; and they were amazed with a great amazement, 43and He charged them much, that no one may know this thing, and He said that there be given to her to eat.
