View In My Bible
1 And when he completed all his sayings in the ears of the people, he went into Capernaum; 2 and a certain centurion's servant being ill, was about to die, who was much valued by him, 3 and having heard about Jesus, he sent unto him elders of the Jews, beseeching him, that having come he might thoroughly save his servant. 4 And they, having come near unto Jesus, were calling upon him earnestly, saying -- `He is worthy to whom thou shalt do this, 5 for he doth love our nation, and the synagogue he did build to us.' 6 And 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; 7 wherefore not even myself thought I worthy to come unto thee, but say in a word, and my lad shall be healed; 8 for 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].' 9 And 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;' 10 and those sent, having turned back to the house, found the ailing servant in health. 11 And it came to pass, on the morrow, he was going on to a city called Nain, and there were going with him many of his disciples, and a great multitude, 12 and as he came nigh to the gate of the city, then, lo, one dead was being carried forth, an only son of his mother, and she a widow, and a great multitude of the city was with her. 13 And the Lord having seen her, was moved with compassion towards her, and said to her, `Be not weeping;' 14 and having come near, he touched the bier, and those bearing [it] stood still, and he said, `Young man, to thee I say, Arise;' 15 and the dead sat up, and began to speak, and he gave him to his mother; 16 and fear took hold of all, and they were glorifying God, saying -- `A great prophet hath risen among us,' and -- `God did look upon His people.' 17 And the account of this went forth in all Judea about him, and in all the region around. 18 And the disciples of John told him about all these things,
