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

1And they cam over to the other syde of ye see in to the coutre of ye Gaderenites. 2And when he was come out of ye shippe there met him out of the graves a man possessyd of an vncleane sprete 3which had his abydinge amoge the graves. And no man coulde bynde him: no not with cheynes 4because that when he was often bounde wt fetters and cheynes he plucked ye chaynes asundre and brake the fetters in peaces. Nether coulde eny man tame him. 5And alwayes bothe nyght and daye he cryed in ye moutaynes and in ye graves and bet himsilfe wt stones. 6When he had spied Iesus afarre of he rane and worshipped him 7and cryed wt a lowde voyce and sayde: what have I to do wt the Iesus ye sonne of the moost hyest God? I requyre ye in the name of God yt thou tormet me not. 8For he had sayd vnto hym: come out of the man thou fowle sprete. 9And he axed him: what is thy name? And he answered sayinge: my name is Legion for we are many. 10And he prayd him instantly that he wolde not sende the awaye out of the countre. 11And ther was there nye vnto ye moutayns a greate heerd of swyne fedinge 12and all the devyls besought him sayinge: sende vs into the heerde of swyne yt we maye enter in to them. 13And anone Iesus gave them leave. And the vnclene spretes wet out and entred into ye swyne. And the heerd starteled and ran hedling into the see. They were about .ii.M. swyne and they were drouned in the see.

14And the swyne heerdes fleed and tolde it in ye cyte and in the countre. And they came out for to se what had hapened: 15and came to Iesus and sawe hym that was vexed wt the fende and had the legio syt both clothed and in his right mynde and were afrayed. 16And they that sawe it tolde them how it had happened vnto him that was possessed with the devyll: and also of the swyne. 17And they begane to praye him that he wolde departe fro their coostes. 18And when he was come in to the shyppe he that had ye devyll prayed him that he myght be with him. 19Howbeit Iesus wolde not suffre him but sayde vnto him: goo home in to thyne awne housse and to thy frendes and shewe the what great thinges ye Lorde hath done vnto the and how he had copassion on the. 20And he departed and begane to publisshe in ye ten cyties what greate thinges Iesus had done vnto him and all me dyd merveyle.

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

21And when Iesus was come over agayne by shyp vnto the other syde moche people gadered vnto him and he was nye vnto the see. 22And beholde ther came one of the rulers of ye Synagoge whose name was Iairus: and when he sawe him he fell doune at his fete 23and besought hym greatly sayinge: my doughter lyith at poynt of deeth I wolde thou woldest come and laye thy honde on her that she myght be safe and live. 24And he wet with him and moche people folowed him and thronged him.

25And ther was a certen woman which was diseased of an yssue of bloude .xii. yeres 26and had suffred many thinges of many phisicios and had spet all yt she had and felte none amendmet at all but wexed worsse and worsse. 27When she had herde of Iesus: she came into the preace behynde him and touched his garmet. 28For she thought: yf I maye but touche his clothes I shall be whole. 29And streyght waye her foutayne of bloude was dryed vp aud she felt in her body that she was healed of the plage. 30And Iesus immediatly felt in him silfe ye vertue that wet out of him and tourned him roude aboute in the preace and sayde: who touched my clothes? 31And his disciples sayde vnto him: seist thou ye people thr ust the and yet axest who dyd touche me? 32And he loked roud about for to se her that had done that thinge. 33The woman feared and trembled (for she knew what was done with in her) and she came and fell doune before him and tolde him ye truth of everyt hinge. 34And he sayde to her: Doughter thy fayth hath made the whoale: goo in peace and be whole of thy plage.

35Whyll he yet spake ther came fro the ruler of ye synagoges housse certayne which sayde: thy doughter is deed: why diseasest thou ye master eny further? 36Assone as Iesus herde that worde spoke he sayde vnto the ruler of ye synagoge: be not afrayed only beleve. 37And he suffred no man to folowe him moo then Peter and Iames and Ihon the brother of Iames. 38And he came vnto the housse of the ruler of ye synagoge and sawe ye wondrynge and them that wepte and wayled greatly 39and went in and sayde vnto them: why make ye this adoo and wepe? The mayde is not deed but slepith. 40And they lawght him to scorne. Then he put them all out and toke ye father and the mother of ye mayden and them that were with him and entred in where the mayden laye 41and toke the mayden by the honde and sayde vnto hyr: Tabitha cumi: which is by interpretacion: mayde I saye vnto the aryse. 42And streyght the mayden arose and went on her fete. For she was of the age of twelve yeres. And they were astonied at it out of measure. 43And he charged the straytely that no man shuld knowe of it and comaunded to geve her meate.
