35 1In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and 2was praying there.
36 Simon and his companions * searched for Him;
37 they found Him, and said to Him, "Everyone is looking for You."
38 He said to them, "Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby, so that I may apreach there also; for that is what I came for."
39 3And He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, bpreaching and casting out the demons.
40 4And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and 5falling on his knees before Him, and saying, "If You are willing, You can make me clean."
41 Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."
42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.
43 And He sternly warned him and immediately sent him away,
44 and He said to him, "6See that you say nothing to anyone; but 7go, show yourself to the priest and 8offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."
45 But he went out and began to 9proclaim it freely and to 10spread the news around, to such an extent that cJesus could no longer publicly enter a city, but dstayed out in unpopulated areas; and 11they were coming to Him from everywhere.
