3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone.n But go, show yourself to the priesto and offer the gift Moses commanded,p as a testimony to them.”
5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed,q suffering terribly.”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.r 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.s 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west,t and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.u 12 But the subjects of the kingdomv will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”w
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.”x And his servant was healed at that moment.
16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.y 17 This was to fulfillz what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
“He took up our infirmities
18 When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake.b 19 Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”
20 Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Manc has no place to lay his head.”
22 But Jesus told him, “Follow me,d and let the dead bury their own dead.”
23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
28 When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes,c two demon-possessedg men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. 29 “What do you want with us,h Son of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?”i
32 He said to them, “Go!” So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. 33 Those tending the pigs ran off, went into the town and reported all this, including what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34 Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they pleaded with him to leave their region.j
The Greek word traditionally translated leprosy was used for various diseases affecting the skin.
