And 1He came down to 2Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and He was teaching them on the Sabbath;
and 3they were amazed at His teaching, for 4His message was with authority.
In the synagogue there was a man possessed by the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice,
"Let us alone! 5What business do we have with each other, Jesus of 6Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are-7the Holy One of God!"
But Jesus 8rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet and come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him down in the midst of the people, he came out of him without doing him any harm.
And amazement came upon them all, and they began talking with one another saying, "What is this message? For 9with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits and they come out."
And 10the report about Him was spreading into every locality in the surrounding district.
11Then He got up and left the synagogue, and entered Simon's home. Now Simon's mother-in-law was 12suffering from a high fever, and they asked Him to help her.
And standing over her, He 13rebuked the fever, and it left her; and she immediately got up and waited on them.
14While 15the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and 16laying His hands on each one of them, He was 17healing them.
Demons also were coming out of many, shouting, "You are 18the Son of God!" But 19rebuking them, He would 20not allow them to speak, because they knew Him to be the Christ.
21When day came, Jesus left and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and came to Him and tried to keep Him from going away from them.
But He said to them, "I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, 22for I was sent for this purpose."
So He kept on preaching in the synagogues 23of Judea.
