Jesus Cleanses a Leper; The Centurion's Faith

1 When aJesus came down from the mountain, blarge crowds followed Him. 2 And 1a leper came to Him and c2bowed down before Him, and said, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean." 3 Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." And immediately his 3leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus said to him, "4See that you tell no one; but 5go, 6show yourself to the priest and present the doffering that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them." 5 And 7when eJesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, imploring Him, 6 and saying, "fLord, my gservant is hlying 8paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented." 7 Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him." 8 But the centurion said, "iLord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just jsay the word, and my kservant will be healed. 9 "For I also am a man under 9authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes, and to another, 'Come!' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it."
