Luke 8 WYC/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it was done afterward, and Jesus made journey by cities and castles, preaching and evangelizing the realm of God, and twelve 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 some women that were healed of wicked spirits and sicknesses, Mary, that is called Magdalene, of whom seven devils went 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, the wife of Chuza, the procurator of Herod, and Susanna, and many others, that ministered to him of their riches [which ministered to him of their faculties, or riches]. 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 when much people was come together, and men hied to him from the cities, he said by a similitude, [Forsooth when full much company came together, and from cities hasted to him, he said by a likeness, or example,] 4 While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable:
5 He that soweth, went out to sow his seed. And while he soweth, some fell beside the way, and was defouled, and birds of the air ate it. 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 on a stone, and it sprang up, and dried, for it had not moisture [for it had no moisture]. 6 Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture.
7 And other fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up together, and strangled it. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants.
8 And other fell into good earth [And another fell down into good land], and it sprang up, and made an hundredfold fruit. He said these things, and cried, He that hath ears of hearing, hear he. 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 But his disciples asked him, what this parable was. 9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant.
10 And he said to them, To you it is granted to know the private of the kingdom of God [To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God]; but to other men in parables, that they seeing see not, and they hearing understand not. 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 And this is the parable. The seed is God's word; 11 "This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.
12 and they that be beside the way, be these that hear; and afterward the fiend cometh, and taketh away the word from their heart, lest they believing be made safe. [+soothly those that be beside the way, be these that hear; afterward the fiend cometh, and taketh away the word of their heart, lest they believing be made safe.] 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 they that fell on a stone, be these that when they have heard [be these men which when they have heard], receive the word with joy. And these have no roots [And these have not root]; for at a time they believe, and in time of temptation they go 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 among thorns, be these that heard, and of busynesses, and riches, and lusts of life [and volupties of life] they go forth, and be strangled, and bring forth no fruit. 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 that fell into good earth, be these that, in a good heart, and best, hear the word, and hold, and bring forth fruit in patience. [Forsooth that that fell into good earth, be these which, in good heart and best, hearing the word hold, and bring forth fruit in 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 No man lighteth a lantern, and covereth it with a vessel [Forsooth no man lighting a lantern, covereth it with a vessel], or putteth it under a bed, but on a candlestick, that men that enter see 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 no privy thing, which shall not be opened, neither hid thing, which shall not be known, and come into open. [+Forsooth nothing is privy, that shall not be opened, neither hid thing, that shall not be known, and come into apert.] 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 Therefore see ye, how ye hear; for it shall be given to him that hath, and whoever hath not, also that that he weeneth that he have [+also that that he guesseth himself to have], shall be taken away 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 brethren came to him; and they might not come to him for the people [and they might not go fully to him for the company of people]. 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 to him, Thy mother and thy brethren stand withoutforth, willing to see thee. 20 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you."
21 And he answered, and said to them, My mother and my brethren be these, that hear the word of God [which 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 was done in one of the days, he went up into a boat, and his disciples. And he said to them, Pass we over the sea [Pass we over the standing water]. And they went up. 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 while they rowed, he slept. And a tempest of wind came down into the water, and they were driven hither and thither with waves, and were in peril. 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 they came nigh, and raised him, and said [saying], Commander, we perish. And he rose up, and blamed the wind, and the tempest of the water; and it ceased, and peaceability was made. 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? Which dreading wondered, and said together [saying together], Who, guessest thou, is this? for he commandeth to the winds and to the sea, and they obey to 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 rowed to the country of Gadarenes, that is against Galilee [which is against Galilee]. 26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee.
27 And when he went out to the land, a man ran to him, that had a devil long time, and he was not clothed with cloak [+And when he went out to the land, some man ran to him, which had a devil now long time, and was not clothed with cloth], neither dwelled in house, but in sepulchres. 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 This, when he saw Jesus, fell down before him, and he crying with a great voice said, What to me and to thee, Jesus, the Son of the highest God [This as he saw Jesus, felled down before him, and crying with great voice said, What to me and to thee, Jesus, the Son of God the highest]? I beseech thee, that thou 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 commanded the unclean spirit, that he should go out from the man. For he took him oft times, and he was bound with chains, and kept in stocks, and when the bonds were broken [and, the bonds broken], he was led of the devil into desert. 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, and said [saying], What name is to thee? And he said, A legion; for many devils were entered into him. 30 Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "Legion," he replied, because many demons had gone into him.
31 And they prayed him, that he should not command them, that they should go into hell [that they should go into the deepness]. 31 And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss.
32 And there was a flock of many swine pasturing in an hill, and they prayed him, that he should suffer them to enter into them. 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 so the devils went out from the man, and entered into the swine; and with a rush the flock went headlong into the pool, and was drowned [and with rush the flock went headlong into the lake of water, and was strangled]. 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 And when the herders saw this thing done [The which thing, as they that pastured, or kept in pastures, saw done], they fled, and told into the city, and into the towns. 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 that thing that was done. And they came to Jesus, and they found the man sitting clothed, from whom the devils went out, and in whole mind at his feet; and they dreaded. 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 that saw told to them, how he was made whole of the legion. 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured.
37 And all the multitude of the country of Gadarenes prayed him, that he should go from them, for they were held with great dread [for they were holden with great dread]. And he went up into a boat, and turned again. 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 And the man of whom the devils were gone out [And the man of whom the devils went out], prayed him, that he should be with him. Jesus let him go, and said [Soothly Jesus left him, saying], 38 The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying,
39 Go again into thine house, and tell how great things God hath done to thee. And he went through all the city, and preached, how great things Jesus had done to 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 was done, when Jesus was gone again, the people received him; for all were abiding him. 40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him.
41 And lo! a man, to whom the name was Jairus, and he was [a] prince of a synagogue; and he fell down at the feet of Jesus, and prayed him, that he should enter into 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 for he had but one [only] daughter, almost of twelve years old, and she was dead [and this died]. And it befell, the while he went [while he went], he was thronged of the people. 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 that had a flux of blood twelve years, and had spended all her chattel in physicians, and might not be cured of any, [+And some woman was in flux of blood twelve years, which had spended all her substance into leeches, neither might be cured of any,] 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her.
44 and she came nigh behind, and touched the hem of his cloak, and at once the flux of her blood ceased. [came nigh behind, and touched the hem of his cloth, and anon the flux of her blood ceased.] 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
45 And Jesus said, Who is it that touched me? And when all men denied, Peter said, and they that were with him, Commander, the people thrust, and dis-ease thee [Commander, companies of people throng and torment thee], and thou sayest, Who 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 man hath touched me, for that virtue went out of me [for why and I have known virtue to have gone out of me]. 46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me."
47 And the woman seeing, that it was not hid from him, [she] came trembling, and fell down at his feet, and for what cause she had touched him she showed before all the people, and how at once she was healed. [+And the woman seeing, for it was not hid from him, she came trembling, and felled down before his feet, and for what cause she had touched him showed before all the people, and how anon she was 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, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee safe; go thou in peace [go in peace]. 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
49 And yet while he spake, a man came from the prince of the synagogue, and said to him [Yet him speaking, some man came to the prince of the synagogue, saying to him], Thy daughter is dead, do not thou travail the master. 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 And when this word was heard, Jesus answered to the father of the damsel, Do not thou dread, but believe thou only [but only believe thou], and she shall be safe. 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 man to enter with him, but Peter and John and James, and the father and the mother of the damsel. 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 wept, and bewailed her. And he said, Do not ye weep, for the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. "Stop wailing," Jesus said. "She is not dead but asleep."
53 And they scorned him, and knew that she was dead. [And they scorned him, witting that she was dead.] 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead.
54 But he held her hand, and cried, and said [saying], Damsel, rise up. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, "My child, get up!"
55 And her spirit turned again, and she rose at once [and she rose anon]. And he commanded to give to her to eat [And he commanded to give to her for to eat]. 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat.
56 And her father and mother wondered greatly; and he commanded them, that they should not say to any [man] that thing that was done. [And her father and mother wondered greatly; to whom he commanded, that they should not say to any man that that was done.] 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
