American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And they came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes. 1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.
2 And when he was come out of the boat, straightway there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him.
3 who had his dwelling in the tombs: and no man could any more bind him, no, not with a chain; 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain.
4 because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been rent asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: and no man had strength to tame him. 4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.
5 And always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out, and cutting himself with stones. 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
6 And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshipped him; 6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.
7 and crying out with a loud voice, he saith, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the Most High God? I adjure thee by God, torment me not. 7 He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won't torture me!"
8 For he said unto him, Come forth, thou unclean spirit, out of the man. 8 For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!"
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he saith unto him, My name is Legion; for we are many. 9 Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."
10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
11 Now there was there on the mountain side a great herd of swine feeding. 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.
12 And they besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 12 The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them."
13 And he gave them leave. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered into the swine: and the herd rushed down the steep into the sea, [in number] about two thousand; and they were drowned in the sea. 13 He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.
14 And they that fed them fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they came to see what it was that had come to pass. 14 Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened.
15 And they come to Jesus, and behold him that was possessed with demons sitting, clothed and in his right mind, [even] him that had the legion: and they were afraid. 15 When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
16 And they that saw it declared unto them how it befell him that was possessed with demons, and concerning the swine. 16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man--and told about the pigs as well.
17 And they began to beseech him to depart from their borders. 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18 And as he was entering into the boat, he that had been possessed with demons besought him that he might be with him. 18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him.
19 And he suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go to thy house unto thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and [how] he had mercy on thee. 19 Jesus did not let him, but said, "Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you."
20 And he went his way, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men marvelled. 20 So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.
21 And when Jesus had crossed over again in the boat unto the other side, a great multitude was gathered unto him; and he was by the sea. 21 When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake.
22 And there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and seeing him, he falleth at his feet, 22 Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet
23 and beseecheth him much, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death: [I pray thee], that thou come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be made whole, and live. 23 and pleaded earnestly with him, "My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live."
24 And he went with him; and a great multitude followed him, and they thronged him. 24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him.
25 And a woman, who had an issue of blood twelve years, 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years.
26 and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
27 having heard the things concerning Jesus, came in the crowd behind, and touched his garment. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,
28 For she said, If I touch but his garments, I shall be made whole. 28 because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed."
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her plague. 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
30 And straightway Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power [proceeding] from him had gone forth, turned him about in the crowd, and said, Who touched my garments? 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 31 "You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?' "
32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.
34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
35 While he yet spake, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's [house] saying, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Teacher any further? 35 While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. "Your daughter is dead," they said. "Why bother the teacher any more?"
36 But Jesus, not heeding the word spoken, saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not, only believe. 36 Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe."
37 And he suffered no man to follow with him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.
38 And they come to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he beholdeth a tumult, and [many] weeping and wailing greatly. 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.
39 And when he was entered in, he saith unto them, Why make ye a tumult, and weep? the child is not dead, but sleepeth. 39 He went in and said to them, "Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep."
40 And they laughed him to scorn. But he, having put them all forth, taketh the father of the child and her mother and them that were with him, and goeth in where the child was. 40 But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child's father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was.
41 And taking the child by the hand, he saith unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise. 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, ""Talitha koum!"" (which means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!").
42 And straightway the damsel rose up, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And they were amazed straightway with a great amazement. 42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.
43 And he charged them much that no man should know this: and he commanded that [something] should be given her to eat. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
