23Justthen there was a man in their synagogue with an uncleanspirit ; and he cried out,
24saying, "1Whatabusiness do we have with each other, Jesusbof 2Nazareth ? Have You come to destroy us? I knowwho You are-3the HolyOne of God !"
And Jesusrebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!"26Throwing him into convulsions, the uncleanspiritcried out with a loudvoice and came out of him.
They were all4amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, "What is this ? A newteaching with authority ! He commandseven the uncleanspirits, and they obey Him."
28Immediately the news about Him spreadeverywhere into all the surroundingdistrict of Galilee.
295And immediately after they came6out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with cJames and John.
30NowSimon'smother-in-law was lyingsick with a fever ; and immediately they spoke to dJesus about her.
And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the feverleft her, and she ewaited on them.
327When eveningcame, 8after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all who were ill and those who were 9demon-possessed.
And the whole10city had gathered at the door.
And He 11healedmany who were ill with variousdiseases, and cast out manydemons ; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.
3512In the earlymorning, while it was stilldark, Jesus got up, left the house, and wentaway to a secludedplace, and 13was prayingthere.
36Simon and his companionssearched for Him;
they found Him, and said to Him, "Everyone is looking for You."
He said to them, "Let us gosomewhereelse to the townsnearby, so that I may fpreachtherealso ; for that is what I came for."3914And He went into their synagoguesthroughoutallGalilee, gpreaching and casting out the demons.
4015And a lepercame to Jesus, beseeching Him and 16falling on his kneesbefore Him, and saying, "If You are willing, You canmake me clean."
41Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I amwilling ; be cleansed."42Immediately the leprosyleft him and he was cleansed.
And He sternlywarned him and immediatelysent him away,
and He said to him, "17See that you saynothing to anyone ; but 18go, showyourself to the priest and 19offer for your cleansingwhatMosescommanded, as a testimony to them."45
But he went out and began to 20proclaim it freely and to 21spread the newsaround, to such an extent that hJesus couldnolongerpubliclyenter a city, but istayed out in unpopulatedareas ; and 22they were coming to Him from everywhere.
