A Centurion’s Slave Healed

1 After he had finished all his statements in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 2 Now a certain centurion's slave, who was esteemed by him, {was sick}a [and]b was about to die. 3 So [when he]c heard about Jesus, he sent Jewish elders to him, asking him that he would come [and]d cure his slave. 4 And [when they]e came to Jesus, they began imploringf him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy [that] you grant this for him, 5 because he loves our nation and he himself built the synagogue for us." 6 So Jesus went with them. Now by this time he was not far away from the house, [and]g the centurion sent friends, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy that you should come in under my roof. 7 For this reason neither did I consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word and my slave must be healed. 8 For I also am a man placed under authority, who has soldiers under me, and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes, and to another one, 'Come!' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does [it]."h 9 And [when]i Jesus heard these [things], he marveled at him, and turning around to the crowd that was following him, he said, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith!" 10 And [when they]j returned to the house, those who had been sent found the slave healthy.
