Matthew 8

CLV(i) 1 Now, at His descending from the mountain, vast throngs follow Him." 2 And lo! a leper, coming to Him, worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, if Thou shouldst be willing, Thou canst cleanse me!" 3 And, stretching out His hand, He touches him, saying, "I am willing! Be cleansed!And immediately, cleansed is his leprosy." 4 And Jesus is saying to him, "See that you may tell it to no one, but go away; show yourself to the priest and bring the approach present which Moses bids, for a testimony to them." 5 Now at His entering into Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, entreating Him" 6 and saying, "Lord, my boy is prostrate in the house, a paralytic, dreadfully tormented." 7 And he is saying to him, "I, coming, will cure him." 8 And answering, the centurion averred, "Lord, I am not competent that Thou mayest enter under my roof, but only say the word and my boy will be healed!" 9 For I also am a man set under authority, having soldiers under me, and I am saying to this one, 'Go,' and he is going, and to another, 'Come,' and he is coming, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he is doing it." 10 Now, hearing it, Jesus marvels. And He said to those following, "Verily, I am saying to you, With no one in Israel so much faith did I find." 11 Now I am saying to you that many from the east and the west shall be arriving and reclining with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens, 12 yet the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness. There shall be lamentation and gnashing of teeth." 13 And Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! As you believe let it come to be with you!And healed was the boy in that hour. And the centurion, returning into his house in the same hour, found the boy sound. 14 And Jesus, coming into Peter's home, perceived his mother-in-law prostrate and with a fever." 14 And Jesus, coming into Peter's home, perceived his mother-in-law prostrate and with a fever." 15 And He touches her hand, and the fever leaves her. And she was roused and waited on Him." 16 Now, evening coming on, they bring to Him many demoniacs, and He cast out the spirits with a word, and all those who have an illness He cures, 17 so that may be fulfilled which is declared through Isaiah the prophet, saying, He our infirmities got, and the diseases He bears." 18 Now Jesus, perceiving the vast throngs about Him, gives an order to come away to the other side." 19 And, approaching, one scribe said to Him, "Teacher, I will be following Thee wheresoever Thou mayest come away." 20 And Jesus is saying to him, "The jackals have burrows, and the flying creatures of heaven roosts, yet the Son of Mankind has no where that He may be reclining His head." 21 Now a different one of the disciples said to Him, "Lord, permit me first to come away and entomb my father." 22 Yet Jesus is saying to him, "Be following Me, and leave the dead to entomb their own dead." 23 And as He is stepping into the ship, His disciples follow Him." 24 And lo! a great quaking occurred in the sea, so that the ship was covered by the billows. Yet He drowsed." 25 And, approaching, they rouse Him, saying, "Lord! Save us! We are perishing!" 26 And He is saying to them, "Why are you timid, scant of faith?Then, being roused, He rebukes the winds and the sea, and there came a great calm." 27 Now the men marvel, saying, "What manner of Man is this, that the winds as well as the sea are obeying Him? 28 And at His coming to the other side, to the country of the Gergesenes, two demoniacs meet Him, who were coming out of the tombs, very ferocious, so that no one is strong enough to be passing by through that road." 29 And lo! they cry, saying, "What is it to us and to Thee, Son of God! Didst Thou come here to torment us before the season? 30 Now there was, far from them, a herd of many hogs, grazing." 31 Now the demons entreated Him, saying, "If You are casting us out, dispatch us into the herd of hogs." 32 And He said to them, "Go!Now they, coming out, come away into the hogs. And lo! the entire herd rushes down the precipice into the sea and died in the waters." 33 Now the graziers fled, and, coming away into the city, they report all, and the case of the demoniacs." 34 And lo! the entire city came out to meet with Jesus, and, perceiving Him, they entreat that He may be proceeding from their boundaries."
