1And it came to passafterward , thathewent throughout everycityandvillage,preachingand shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God:and the twelve were withhim,2Andcertainwomen,which had beenhealedofevilspiritsandinfirmities,MarycalledMagdalene, out ofwhomwentsevendevils,3AndJoanna the wife of ChuzaHerod'ssteward,andSusanna,andmanyothers,whichministered unto himoftheirsubstance .
4And when muchpeople were gathered together , and were cometohim out of everycity, he spakeby a parable:5A sower went out to sowhisseed:andashesowed , somefellby the way side;and it was trodden down , and the fowls of the airdevouredit.6Andsomefellupon a rock;and as soon as it was sprung up , it withered away , because it lackedmoisture.7Andsomefellamongthorns;and the thorns sprang up with it , and chokedit.8Andotherfellongoodground,and sprang up , and barefruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried , He that hathears to hear , let him hear .9Andhisdisciplesaskedhim,saying , Whatmightthisparablebe ?
10And he said , Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God:but to othersinparables;thatseeing they mightnotsee , andhearing they mightnotunderstand .11Now the parableisthis: The seedis the word of God.12Thoseby the way sideare they that hear ; thencometh the devil,and taketh away the word out oftheirhearts,lest they should believe and be saved .13Theyon the rock are they, which,when they hear , receive the wordwithjoy;andthesehavenoroot,whichfor a whilebelieve , andintime of temptation fall away .14And that which fellamongthornsarethey, which, when they have heard , go forth , and are chokedwithcaresandrichesandpleasures of this life,andbringno fruit to perfection .15But that on the goodgroundarethey,whichin an honestandgoodheart, having heard the word,keep it, and bring forth fruitwithpatience.16Noman, when he hath lighted a candle,coverethit with a vessel,orputteth it under a bed;butsetteth it on a candlestick,that they which enter in may see the light.17Fornothingissecret,thatshallnot be mademanifest;neither any thing hid,thatshallnot be knownandcomeabroad .18Take heedthereforehow ye hear : forwhosoeverhath , to him shall be given ; andwhosoeverhathnot,fromhim shall be takeneven that which he seemetha to have .19Thencametohim his motherandhisbrethren,andcouldnotcome at himfor the press.20And it was toldhim by certain which said , Thymotherandthybrethrenstandwithout,desiring to seethee.21And he answered and saiduntothem,Mymotherandmybrethrenarethesewhichhear the word of God,anddoit.22Now it came to passon a certainday,thathewentinto a shipwithhisdisciples:and he saiduntothem,Let us go overunto the other side of the lake.And they launched forth .
23But as theysailed he fell asleep : and there came down a storm of windon the lake;and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy .
24And they came to him , and awokehim,saying , Master,master, we perish . Then he arose , and rebuked the windand the raging of the water:and they ceased , and there was a calm.25And he said unto them,Whereisyourfaith?And they being afraidwondered , saying one to another , What manner of manisthis!for he commandetheven the windsandwater,and they obeyhim.26And they arrivedat the country of the Gadarenes,whichis over againstGalilee.27And when he went forthtoland, there methim out of the city a certainman,whichhaddevilslongtime,andwarenoclothes,neitherabodein any house,butin the tombs.28When he sawJesus, he cried out , and fell down beforehim,and with a loudvoicesaid , What have I to do withthee,Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseechthee,tormentmenot.29
(For he had commanded the uncleanspirit to come out of the man.Foroftentimesit had caughthim:and he was keptbound with chainsand in fetters;and he brake the bands, and was drivenof the devilinto the wilderness.)
30AndJesusaskedhim,saying , Whatisthyname?And he said , Legion:becausemanydevils were enteredintohim.31And they besoughthimthat he wouldnotcommandthem to go outinto the deep.32And there wasthere an herd of manyswinefeedingon the mountain:and they besoughthimthat he would sufferthem to enterintothem.And he sufferedthem.33Thenwent the devils out of the man, and enteredinto the swine:and the herdran violently down a steep place into the lake,and were choked .
34When they that fed them saw what was done , they fled , andwent and told it in the cityandin the country.35Then they went out to see what was done ; andcametoJesus,andfound the man, out ofwhom the devils were departed , sittingat the feet of Jesus,clothed , and in his right mind : and they were afraid .
36Theyalso which saw it toldthem by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed .
37Then the wholemultitude of the country of the Gadarenes round aboutbesoughthim to departfromthem;for they were taken with greatfear:andhe went upinto the ship, and returned back again .
38Now the man out ofwhom the devils were departedbesoughthim that he might bewithhim:butJesussenthimaway , saying ,
39Returnto thine ownhouse,andshew how great thingsGod hath done unto thee.And he went his way , and publishedthroughout the wholecity how great thingsJesus had done unto him.40And it came to pass , that, whenJesus was returned , the people gladly receivedhim:for they wereall waiting forhim.41And,behold , there came a mannamedJairus,andhewas a ruler of the synagogue:and he fell downatJesus'feet, and besoughthim that he would comeintohishouse:42Forhehad one onlydaughter,abouttwelve years of age,andshe lay a dying . Butashewent the peoplethrongedhim.43And a womanhaving an issue of bloodtwelveyears , which had spentall her livinguponphysicians,neithercould be healedofany,44Camebehind him, and touched the border of hisgarment:andimmediatelyherissue of bloodstanched .
45AndJesussaid , Whotouchedme?Whenalldenied , Peterand they that were withhimsaid , Master, the multitudethrongtheeandpress thee, andsayest thou, Whotouchedme?46AndJesussaid , Somebody hath touchedme:forIperceive that virtue is gone out ofme.47And when the womansawthat she wasnothid , she cametrembling , and falling down beforehim, she declared unto himbeforeall the peopleforwhatcause she had touchedhim,andhow she was healedimmediately.48And he said unto her,Daughter, be of good comfort : thyfaith hath madetheewhole ; goinpeace.49
While heyetspake , there comethonefrom the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him , Thydaughter is dead ; troublenot the Master.50But when Jesusheard it, he answeredhim,saying , Fearnot:believeonly,and she shall be made whole .51And when he cameinto the house, he sufferednoman to go in , savePeter,andJames,andJohn,and the fatherand the mother of the maiden.52Andallwept , andbewailedher:but he said , Weepnot; she isnotdead , butsleepeth .53And they laughedhim to scorn , knowingthat she was dead .
54Andheput them allout,andtookher by the hand, and called , saying , Maid,arise .55Andherspirit came again , and she arosestraightway:and he commanded to givehermeat .
56Andherparents were astonished : but he chargedthem that they should tell no man what was done .
