Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass thereafter, that he was going through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming good news of the reign of God, and the twelve [are] 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 were healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary who is called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone forth, 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, steward of Herod, and Susanna, and many others, who were ministering to him from 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 multitude having gathered, and those who from city and city were coming unto him, he spake by a simile: 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 forth to sow his seed, and in his sowing some indeed fell beside the way, and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the heaven did devour 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 upon the rock, and having sprung up, it did wither, through not having moisture. 6 Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture.
7 `And other fell amidst the thorns, and the thorns having sprung up with it, did choke it. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants.
8 `And other fell upon the good ground, and having sprung up, it made fruit an hundred fold.' These things saying, he was calling, `He having 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 were questioning him, saying, `What may this simile be?' 9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant.
10 And he said, `To you it hath been given to know the secrets of the reign of God, and to the rest in similes; 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 `And this is the simile: The seed is the word of God, 11 "This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.
12 and those beside the way are those hearing, then cometh the Devil, and taketh up the word from their heart, lest having believed, they may 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 `And those upon the rock: They who, when they may hear, with joy do receive the word, and these have no root, who for a time believe, and in time of temptation 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 `And that which fell to the thorns: These are they who have heard, and going forth, through anxieties, and riches, and pleasures of life, are choked, and bear not to completion. 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 `And that in the good ground: These are they, who in an upright and good heart, having heard the word, do retain [it], and bear fruit in continuance. 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 doth cover it with a vessel, or under a couch doth put [it]; but upon a lamp-stand he doth put [it], that those coming 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 nothing is secret, that shall not become manifest, nor hid, that shall not be known, and become manifest. 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 `See, therefore, how ye hear, for whoever may have, there shall be given to him, and whoever may not have, also what he seemeth 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 there came unto him his mother and brethren, and they were not able to get to him because of the multitude, 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 do stand without, wishing to see thee;' 20 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you."
21 and he answering said unto them, `My mother and my brethren! they are those who the word of God are hearing, and doing.' 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 himself went into a boat with his disciples, and he said unto them, `We may go over to the other side of the lake;' and they set forth, 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 are sailing he fell deeply asleep, and there came down a storm of wind to the lake, and they were filling, 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 having come near, they awoke him, saying, `Master, master, we perish;' and he, having arisen, rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and there came 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 they being afraid did wonder, saying unto one another, `Who, then, is this, that even the winds he doth command, 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 sailed down to the region of the Gadarenes, that is over-against Galilee, 26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee.
27 and he having gone forth upon the land, there met him a certain man, out of the city, who had demons for a long time, and with a garment was not clothed, and in a house was not abiding, 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 and having seen Jesus, and having cried out, he fell before him, and with a loud voice, said, `What -- to me and to thee, Jesus, Son of God Most High? I beseech thee, mayest thou not afflict me!' 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 to come forth from the man, for many times it had caught him, and he was being bound with chains and fetters -- guarded, and breaking asunder the bonds he was driven by the demons to 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 questioned him, saying, `What is thy name?' and he said, `Legion,' (because many demons were entered into him,) 30 Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "Legion," he replied, because many demons had gone into him.
31 and he was calling on him, that he may not command them to go away to the abyss, 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 in the mountain, and they were calling on him, that he might suffer them to enter into these, 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 having gone forth from the man, did enter into the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep to 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 And those feeding [them], having seen what was come to pass, fled, and having gone, told [it] to the city, and to the fields; 34 When those tending the pigs saw what had happened, they ran off and reported this in the town and countryside,
35 and they came forth to see what was come to pass, and they came unto Jesus, and found the man sitting, out of whom the demons had gone forth, clothed, and right-minded, 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 those also having seen [it], told them how the demoniac was saved. 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured.
37 And the whole multitude of the region of the Gadarenes round about asked him to go away from them, because with great fear they were pressed, and he having entered into the boat, did turn back. 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 from whom the demons had gone forth was beseeching of him to be with him, and Jesus 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 `Turn back to thy house, and tell how great things God did to thee;' and he went away through all the city proclaiming how great things Jesus did 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 came to pass, in the turning back of Jesus, the multitude received him, for they were all looking for him, 40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him.
41 and lo, there came a man, whose name [is] Jairus, and he was a chief of the synagogue, and having fallen at the feet of Jesus, was calling on 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 in his going away, the multitudes were thronging 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, having an issue of blood for twelve years, who, having spent on physicians all her living, was not able to be healed by any, 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her.
44 having come near behind, touched the fringe of his garment, and presently the issue of her blood stood. 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 all denying, Peter and those with him said, `Master, the multitudes press thee, and throng [thee], and thou dost say, Who [is] it that 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 did touch me, for I knew power having gone forth from me.' 46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me."
47 And the woman, having seen that she was not hid, trembling, came, and having fallen before him, for what cause she touched him declared to him before all the people, and how she was healed presently; 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, `Take courage, daughter, thy faith hath saved thee, be going on to peace.' 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
49 While he is yet speaking, there doth come a certain one from the chief of the synagogue's [house], saying to him -- `Thy daughter hath died, harass not 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 and Jesus having heard, answered him, saying, `Be not afraid, only believe, and she shall be saved.' 50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."
51 And having come to the house, he suffered no one to go in, except Peter, and James, and John, 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 they were all weeping, and beating themselves for her, and he said, `Weep not, she did not die, but doth sleep; 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. "Stop wailing," Jesus said. "She is not dead but asleep."
53 and they were deriding him, knowing that she did die; 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead.
54 and he having put all forth without, and having taken hold of her hand, called, saying, `Child, arise;' 54 But he took her by the hand and said, "My child, get up!"
55 and her spirit came back, and she arose presently, and he directed that there be given to her 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 parents were amazed, but he charged them to say to no one what was come to pass. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
