Mark 9:14-29

RKJNT(i) 14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and ran to greet him. 16 And he asked the scribes, What are you discussing with them? 17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Teacher, I have brought to you my son, who has a dumb spirit; 18 And whenever it seizes him, it tears him: and he foams, and gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid: and I asked your disciples to cast it out; and they could not. 19 He answered him, and said, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I endure you? bring him to me. 20 And they brought him to him: and when he saw him, immediately the spirit tore him; and he fell on the ground, and rolled around foaming at the mouth. 21 And he asked his father, How long has this been happening to him? And he said, Since he was a child. 22 And often it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if you can do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 23 Jesus said to him, If you can! all things are possible to him who believes. 24 And immediately the father of the child cried out, and said, Lord, I believe; help me overcome my unbelief. 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying to him, You dumb and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and do not enter into him again. 26 And the spirit cried out, and threw him into severe convulsions, and came out of him: and he was like a corpse; so that many said, He is dead. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 28 And when he came into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could we not cast it out? 29 And he said to them, This kind can come out by nothing but prayer.
