Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Ger'asenes. 1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.
2 And when he had come out of the boat, 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 lived among the tombs; and no one could bind him any more, even with a chain; 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain.
4 for he had often been bound with fetters and chains, but the chains he wrenched apart, and the fetters he broke in pieces; and no one had the strength to subdue 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 Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out, and bruising 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 worshiped 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 said, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me." 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 had said to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!" 8 For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!"
9 And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He replied, "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 begged him eagerly not to send them out of the country. 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
11 Now a great herd of swine was feeding there on the hillside; 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.
12 and they begged him, "Send us to the swine, let us enter them." 12 The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them."
13 So he gave them leave. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered the swine; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and 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 The herdsmen fled, and told it in the city and in the country. And people came to see what it was that had happened. 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 came to Jesus, and saw the demoniac sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, the man who had 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 those who had seen it told what had happened to the demoniac and to 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 beg Jesus to depart from their neighborhood. 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18 And as he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged 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 But he refused, and said to him, "Go home to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you." 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 away and began to proclaim in the Decap'olis how much Jesus had done for him; and all men marveled. 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 again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him; and he was beside 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 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja'irus by name; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 22 Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet
23 and besought him, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, 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 crowd followed him and thronged about him. 24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him.
25 And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years.
26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better 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 She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd 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 even his garments, I shall be made well." 28 because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed."
29 And immediately the hemorrhage ceased; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned 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 to him, "You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, '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 around to see who had done it. 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
33 But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole 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 to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease." 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
35 While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler's house some who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble 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 ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." 36 Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe."
37 And he allowed no one to follow him except 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 When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 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 had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." 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 at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went 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 Taking her by the hand he said to her, "Tal'itha cu'mi"; which means, "Little girl, I say to you, 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 immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.
43 And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
