Mark 5:2-12 MSG

2 As Jesus got out of the boat, a madman from the cemetery came up to him.
3 He lived there among the tombs and graves. No one could restrain him - he couldn't be chained, couldn't be tied down.
4 He had been tied up many times with chains and ropes, but he broke the chains, snapped the ropes. No one was strong enough to tame him.
5 Night and day he roamed through the graves and the hills, screaming out and slashing himself with sharp stones.
6 When he saw Jesus a long way off, he ran and bowed in worship before him -
7 then bellowed in protest, "What business do you have, Jesus, Son of the High God, messing with me? I swear to God, don't give me a hard time!"
8 (Jesus had just commanded the tormenting evil spirit, "Out! Get out of the man!")
9 Jesus asked him, "Tell me your name."
10 Then he desperately begged Jesus not to banish them from the country.
11 A large herd of pigs was browsing and rooting on a nearby hill.
12 The demons begged him, "Send us to the pigs so we can live in them."
