Jesus Stills the Sea

22 1Now on one of those days Jesus and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, "Let us go over to the other side of 2the lake." So they launched out. 23 But as they were sailing along He fell asleep; and a fierce gale of wind descended on 3the lake, and they began to be swamped and to be in danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, "4Master, Master, we are perishing!" And He got up and 5rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and ait became calm. 25 And He said to them, "Where is your faith?" They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?"

The Demoniac Cured

26 6Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. 27 And when He came out onto the land, He was met by a man from the city who was possessed with demons; and who had not put on any clothing for a long time, and was not living in a house, but in the tombs. 28 Seeing Jesus, he cried out and fell before Him, and said in a loud voice, "b7What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of 8the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me." 29 For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had seized him many times; and he was bound with chains and shackles and kept under guard, and yet he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into the desert. 30 And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" And he said, "9Legion "; for many demons had entered him. 31 They were imploring Him not to command them to go away into 10the abyss. 32 Now there was a herd of many swine feeding there on the mountain; and the demons implored Him to permit them to enter cthe swine. And He gave them permission.
