The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass afterwards that *he* went through [the country] city by city, and village by village, preaching and announcing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God; and the twelve [were] with him, 1 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him,
2 and certain women who had been healed of wicked spirits and infirmities, Mary who was called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out;
3 and Joanna, wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, who ministered to him of their substance. 3 Joanna the wife of Cuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.
4 And a great crowd coming together, and those who were coming to him out of each city, he spoke by parable: 4 While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable:
5 The sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the way, and it was trodden under foot, and the birds of the heaven devoured it up; 5 "A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds of the air ate it up.
6 and other fell upon the rock, and having sprung up, it was dried up because it had not moisture; 6 Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture.
7 and other fell in the midst of the thorns, and the thorns having sprung up with [it] choked it; 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants.
8 and other fell into the good ground, and having sprung up bore fruit a hundredfold. As he said these things he cried, He that has ears to hear, let him hear. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown." When he said this, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
9 And his disciples asked him [saying], What may this parable be? 9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant.
10 And he said, To you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest in parables, in order that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. 10 He said, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, " 'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.'
11 But the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 11 "This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.
12 But those by the wayside are those who hear; then comes the devil and takes away the word from their heart that they may not believe and be saved. 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved.
13 But those upon the rock, those who when they hear receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a time, and in time of trial fall away. 13 Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.
14 But that that fell where the thorns were, these are they who having heard go away and are choked under cares and riches and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 14 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life's worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.
15 But that in the good ground, these are they who in an honest and good heart, having heard the word keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
16 And no one having lighted a lamp covers it with a vessel or puts it under a couch, but sets it on a lamp-stand, that they who enter in may see the light. 16 "No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.
17 For there is nothing hid which shall not become manifest, nor secret which shall not be known and come to light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.
18 Take heed therefore how ye hear; for whosoever has, to him shall be given, and whosoever has not, even what he seems to have shall be taken from him. 18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken from him."
19 And his mother and his brethren came to him, and could not get to him because of the crowd. 19 Now Jesus' mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd.
20 And it was told him [saying], Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, wishing to see thee. 20 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you."
21 But he answering said to them, My mother and my brethren are those who hear the word of God and do [it]. 21 He replied, "My mother and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice."
22 And it came to pass on one of the days, that *he* entered into a ship, himself and his disciples; and he said to them, Let us pass over to the other side of the lake; and they set off from shore. 22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's go over to the other side of the lake." So they got into a boat and set out.
23 And as they sailed, he fell asleep; and a sudden squall of wind came down on the lake, and they were filled [with water], and were in danger; 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.
24 and coming to [him] they woke him up, saying, Master, master, we perish. But he, rising up, rebuked the wind and the raging of the water; and they ceased, and there was a calm. 24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we're going to drown!" He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.
25 And he said to them, Where is your faith? And, being afraid, they were astonished, saying to one another, Who then is this, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him? 25 "Where is your faith?" he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him."
26 And they arrived in the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. 26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee.
27 And as he got out [of the ship] on the land, a certain man out of the city met him, who had demons a long time, and put on no clothes, and did not abide in a house, but in the tombs. 27 When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town. For a long time this man had not worn clothes or lived in a house, but had lived in the tombs.
28 But seeing Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus Son of the Most High God? I beseech thee torment me not. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet, shouting at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don't torture me!"
29 For he had commanded the unclean spirit to go out from the man. For very often it had seized him; and he had been bound, kept with chains and fetters; and breaking the bonds he was driven by the demon into the deserts. 29 For Jesus had commanded the evil spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places.
30 And Jesus asked him saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: for many demons had entered into him. 30 Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "Legion," he replied, because many demons had gone into him.
31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go away into the bottomless pit. 31 And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss.
32 And there was there a herd of many swine feeding on the mountain, and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into those; and he suffered them. 32 A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into them, and he gave them permission.
33 And the demons, going out from the man, entered into the swine, and the herd rushed down the precipice into the lake, and were choked. 33 When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.
34 But they that fed [them], seeing what had happened, fled, and told [it] to the city and to the country. 34 When those tending the pigs saw what had happened, they ran off and reported this in the town and countryside,
35 And they went out to see what had happened, and came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting, clothed and sensible, at the feet of Jesus. And they were afraid. 35 and the people went out to see what had happened. When they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus' feet, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
36 And they also who had seen it told them how the possessed man had been healed. 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured.
37 And all the multitude of the surrounding country of the Gadarenes asked him to depart from them, for they were possessed with great fear; and *he*, entering into the ship, returned. 37 Then all the people of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them, because they were overcome with fear. So he got into the boat and left.
38 But the man out of whom the demons had gone besought him that he might be with him. But he sent him away, saying, 38 The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying,
39 Return to thine house and relate how great things God has done for thee. And he went away through the whole city, publishing how great things Jesus had done for him. 39 "Return home and tell how much God has done for you." So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.
40 And it came to pass when Jesus returned, the crowd received him gladly, for they were all expecting him. 40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him.
41 And behold, a man came, whose name was Jairus, and he was [a] ruler of the synagogue, and falling at the feet of Jesus besought him to come to his house, 41 Then a man named Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, came and fell at Jesus' feet, pleading with him to come to his house
42 because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. And as he went the crowds thronged him. 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him.
43 And a woman who had a flux of blood since twelve years, who, having spent all her living on physicians, could not be cured by any one, 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her.
44 coming up behind, touched the hem of his garment, and immediately her flux of blood stopped. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
45 And Jesus said, Who has touched me? But all denying, Peter and those with him said, Master, the crowds close thee in and press upon thee, and sayest thou, Who has touched me? 45 "Who touched me?" Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you."
46 And Jesus said, Some one has touched me, for *I* have known that power has gone out from me. 46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me."
47 And the woman, seeing that she was not hid, came trembling, and falling down before him declared before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was immediately healed. 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed.
48 And he said to her, [Be of good courage,] daughter; thy faith has healed thee; go in peace. 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
49 While he was yet speaking, comes some one from the ruler of the synagogue, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher. 49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. "Your daughter is dead," he said. "Don't bother the teacher any more."
50 But Jesus, hearing it, answered him saying, Fear not: only believe, and she shall be made well. 50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."
51 And when he came to the house he suffered no one to go in but Peter and John and James and the father of the child and the mother. 51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child's father and mother.
52 And all were weeping and lamenting her. But he said, Do not weep, for she has not died, but sleeps. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. "Stop wailing," Jesus said. "She is not dead but asleep."
53 And they derided him, knowing that she had died. 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead.
54 But *he*, having turned them all out and taking hold of her hand, cried saying, Child, arise. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, "My child, get up!"
55 And her spirit returned, and immediately she rose up; and he commanded [something] to eat to be given to her. 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat.
56 And her parents were amazed; but he enjoined them to tell no one what had happened. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
