Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid.
Those who had seen it told them how the one who had been possessed by demons had been healed.
Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes a asked Jesus b to leave them; for they were seized with great fear. So he got into the boat and returned.
The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but Jesus c sent him away, saying,
"Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you." So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him.
Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
Just then there came a man named Jairus, a leader of the synagogue. He fell at Jesus' feet and begged him to come to his house,
for he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, who was dying. As he went, the crowds pressed in on him.
Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years; and though she had spent all she had on physicians, d no one could cure her.
She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his clothes, and immediately her hemorrhage stopped.
Then Jesus asked, "Who touched me?" When all denied it, Peter e said, "Master, the crowds surround you and press in on you."
