26 And they arrived at the country of the aGadarenes, which is over against Galilee. 27 And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city ba certain man, which had devils clong time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and ccfell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. 29 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil dinto the wilderness.) 30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. 31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into ethe deep. 32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. 33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into wthe lake, and were choked. 34 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country. 35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, fout of whom the devils were departed, gsitting at the feet of Jesus, hclothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed. 37 Then the whole multitude of the country of the aGadarenes round about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and he went up into ithe ship, and returned back again. 38 Now jthe man fout of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published kthroughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.

40 And it came to pass, that, lwhen Jesus was returned, the people mgladly received him: for they were all waiting for him. 41 nAnd, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: 42 For he had oone only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him. 43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent pall her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind him, and touched the qborder of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, rMaster, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and sfalling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath tmade thee whole; ugo in peace. 49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. 50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. 51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and wbewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. 56 And her parents xwere astonished: but yhe charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

9 Then ahe called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And bhe sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. cAnd he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet dfor a testimony against them. eAnd they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

*fNow gHerod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he hwas perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead; And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again. And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? iAnd he desired to see him.

10 jAnd the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. kAnd he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called lBethsaida. 11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and mspake unto them of the kingdom of God, and nhealed them that had need of healing. 12 And when the day began to nnwear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and olodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. 13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. 14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. 15 And they did so, and made them all sit down. 16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. 17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

18 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and phe asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am? 19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that qone of the old prophets is risen again. 20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 21 rAnd he sstraitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; 22 tSaying, uThe Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. 23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and wtake up his cross xdaily, and follow me. 24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or ybe cast away? 26 zFor whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels. 27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

28 aAnd it came to pass about an beight days after these ||csayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain dto pray. 29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was ealtered, and his raiment was white and glistering. 30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were iMoses and Elias: 31 Who appeared in fglory, and spake of his gdecease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 But Peter and they that were with him were hheavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw fhis glory, and the two men that stood with him. 33 And it came to pass, as ithey departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, kMaster, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: lnot knowing what he said. 34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as ithey entered into the cloud. 35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. mAnd they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, nwhen they were come down from nnthe hill, much people met him. 38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, olook upon my son: for he is pmine only child. 39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly ppcrieth out; and it qteareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him. 40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not. 41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

43 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. rBut while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples, 44 Let these sayings ssink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. 45 tBut they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

46 uThen there arose wa reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 47 And Jesus, x
