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

1And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes. 2And, when He came out of the boat, straightway there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3who had his dwelling in the tombs; and no one could any longer bind him, not even with a chain; 4because he had often been bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been torn asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces, and no one had strength to tame him. 5And always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6And, seeing Jesus afar off, he ran and worshiped Him; 7and, crying with a loud voice, he says, "What is there to me and Thee, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure Thee by God, that Thou torment me not!" 8For He said to him, "Come forth, unclean spirit, out of the man!" 9And He asked him, "What is your name?" And he says to Him, "My name is Legion, because we are many." 10And he was beseeching Him much, that He would not send them away out of the country. 11Now there was there by the mountain a great herd of swine feeding 12And they besought Him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them." 13And He permitted them. And, coming out, the unclean spirits entered into the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep into the sea, about two thousand, and were drowned in the sea.

14And those feeding the swine fled, and reported it in the city and in the country. And they came to see what it was that had come to pass. 15And they come to Jesus, and behold the demoniac sitting, clothed, and having his right mind?the one who had had the legion, and they were afraid. 16And those who saw it declared to them how it befell the demoniac, and concerning the swine. 17And they began to beseech Him to depart from their borders. 18And, as He was entering into the boat, he that had been a demoniac was beseeching Him, that he might be with Him. 19And He did not permit him, but saith to him, "Go to your house, to your own people, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for you, and how He had mercy on you." 20And he went away, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus did for him; and all were wondering.

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

21And, Jesus having crossed over in the boat again to the other side, a large multitude was gathered to Him; and He was by the sea. 22And there comes one of the synagogue-rulers, Jairus by name; and, seeing Him, he falls at His feet, 23and beseeches Him much, saying, "My little daughter is extremely ill; I pray that, coming, Thou wilt lay Thy hands upon her, that she may be healed and live." 24And He went away with him; and a great multitude was following Him, and they were thronging Him.

25And a woman, having a flow of blood twelve years, 26and having suffered many things under many physicians, and having spent all that she had, and having been profited nothing, but rather coming into the worse state, 27having heard the things concerning Jesus, coming in the crowd behind, touched His garment. 28For she said, "If I touch even His garments, I shall be healed." 29And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was cured of the plague. 30And straight-way Jesus, perceiving in Himself that power had gone forth from Him, turning about in the crowd, said, "Who touched Me?" 31And His disciples said to Him, "Thou seest the multitude thronging Thee, and sayest Thou, 'Who touched Me?'" 32And He was looking around to see her who did this. 33But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came, and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth. 34And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you; go in peace, and be well of your ailment."

35While He was yet speaking, they come from the synagogue-ruler's house, saying, "Your daughter died; why do you trouble the Teacher any further?" 36But Jesus, disregarding the word spoken, saith to the synagogue-ruler, "Fear not, only believe." 37And He permitted no one to follow with Him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And they come to the house of the synagogue-ruler; and He beholds a tumult, and people weeping and wailing greatly. 39And, having entered, He saith to them, "Why do ye make a tumult, and weep? the child did not die, but she is sleeping." 40And they were deriding Him. But He, having put them all out, taketh with Him the father of the child, and the mother, and those with Him, and goeth in where the child was. 41And, having taken hold of the child's hand, He saith to her, "Talitha cumi;" which is, being interpreted, "Damsel, (I say to you), arise." 42And straight-way the damsel arose, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And straightway they were amazed with great amazement. 43And He charged them much that no one should know this; and He commanded that something should be given her to eat.
