1 And when he completed all his sayings in the ears of the people, he went into Capernaum; 2and a certain centurion’s servant being ill, was about to die, who was much valued by him, 3and having heard about Jesus, he sent unto him elders of the Jews, beseeching him, that having come he might thoroughly save his servant. 4And they, having come near unto Jesus, were calling upon him earnestly, saying—‘He is worthy to whom thou shalt do this, 5for he doth love our nation, and the synagogue he did build to us.’ 6And Jesus was going on with them, and now when he is not far distant from the house the centurion sent unto him friends, saying to him, ‘Sir, be not troubled, for I am not worthy that under my roof thou mayest enter; 7wherefore not even myself thought I worthy to come unto thee, but say in a word, and my lad shall be healed; 8for I also am a man placed under authority, having under myself soldiers, and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Be coming, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doth it.’ 9And having heard these things Jesus wondered at him, and having turned to the multitude following him, he said, ‘I say to you, not even in Israel so much faith did I find;’ 10and those sent, having turned back to the house, found the ailing servant in health.
