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 Gadarenes. 2And when He was come out of the ship, immediately there met Him from the tombs, 3a man with an impure spirit, who kept among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains: 4for he had often been bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been pulled asunder by him, and the fetters broken; and no man could tame him: 5and he was always night and day upon the hills and among the sepulchres bawling, and gashing himself with stones. 6But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped Him, 7and crying out with a loud voice said, Jesus thou Son of the most high God, what have I to do with thee? I adjure thee by God, that thou wouldst not torment me: 8(for He said to him, Thou impure spirit, come out of the man.) 9And He asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 10And he earnestly intreated Him, that He would not send them out of that country. 11Now there was a great herd of swine feeding upon the mountains: 12and all the demons intreated Him, saying, Send us to the swine, that we may enter into them. 13And immediately Jesus permitted them: and the impure spirits went out of the man, and entered into the swine; and the herd (which were about two thousand,) ran violently down a precipice into the sea, and were suffocated.

14And they that were feeding the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what was done: 15and they come to Jesus, and see the demoniac, who had been possessed by the legion, sitting and clothed, and in his right mind; and they were afraid. 16And when those that saw it told them what had happened to the demoniac, 17and concerning the swine, they intreated Him to depart from their borders. 18And as He went into the ship, the demoniac intreated Him that he might be with Him: 19but Jesus did not permit him; but saith to him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee: 20and he departed, and published in Decapolis, how great things Jesus had done for him, and they were all amazed.

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

21And when Jesus passed over again in the ship to the other side, a great multitude was gathered unto Him, nigh unto the sea. 22And behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus; and as soon as he saw Him, he fell at his feet, 23and earnestly intreated Him, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death, I beseech thee that thou wouldst come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live. 24So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him, and pressed about Him.

25And a woman who had been in a flux twelve years, 26and had suffered a great deal from many physicians, and spent all that she had, and received no benefit, but rather grew worse, 27when she heard of Jesus, came behind Him in the croud, and touched his garment; for she said, 28If I can but touch his clothes, I shall be cured. 29And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt within herself that she was healed of the disorder. 30And immediately Jesus, knowing in Himself that power was gone out of Him, turned about in the croud and said, Who touched my clothes? 31And his disciples said unto Him, Thou seest the multitude crouding about thee, and dost thou ask, Who touched me? 32and He looked round about to see who had done it. 33But the woman being afraid and trembling, as knowing what had been done in her, came and prostrated herself to Him, and told Him all the truth: 34and He said to her, Daughter, thy faith has saved thee; go in peace, and be healed of thy disorder.

35While He was yet speaking, there came some from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Thy daughter is dead, why dost thou trouble the Master any more? 36But Jesus hearing the word that was spoken, immediately saith to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not, only believe: 37and He suffered none to go along with Him, but Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And He cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth a tumult, people weeping and lamenting greatly: 39and when He was come in, He saith unto them, Why do ye take on thus and weep? the child is not dead, but asleep. 40And they laughed at Him: but when He had turned them all out, He taketh the father, and the mother of the child, and those three that were with Him, and goes in where the child was laid: 41and taking hold of her hand, He saith unto her, Talitha, cumi, which is, being interpreted, Damsel, (I say unto thee) arise: 42and immediately the damsel rose up and walked; for she was twelve years old; and they were struck with great astonishment. 43And He strictly charged them, that no one should know it: and bid them give her something to eat.
