The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And they came over to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.
2 And when he had come out of the boat, immediately 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 among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain.
4 For he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any [man] 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, he was on the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, 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 But when he saw Jesus afar off, 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 cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, [thou] Son of the Most High God? I adjure thee by God, that thou 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 to him, Come out of the man, [thou] unclean spirit.) 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 answered, saying, 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 nigh to the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.
12 And all the demons 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 forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea (they were about two thousand) and were choked 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 the swine fled, and told [it] in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 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 see him that was possessed with the demon, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: 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] told them how it befell him that was possessed with the demon, and [also] 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 pray him to depart out of their borders. 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18 And when he had come into the boat, he that had been possessed with the demon prayed 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 Yet Jesus suffered him not, but saith to him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion 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 departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him. And all [men] wondered. 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 passed over again in a boat to the other side, much people gathered to him: and he was nigh to 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 behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw 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 greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: [I pray thee], come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she will 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 [Jesus] went with him; and many people followed him, and thronged him. 24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him.
25 And a certain 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 from many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was not relieved, 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 When she had heard of 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 may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 28 because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed."
29 And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in [her] body that she was healed of that infirmity. 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the throng, and said, Who touched my clothes? 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, 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 around, 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 was done in 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 to her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be healed of thy infirmity. 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
35 While he was yet speaking, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's [house certain] who said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master 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 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith to the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, 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 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 he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed 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 had come in, he saith to them, Why make ye this tumult, and weep? the damsel 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 derided him: but when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. 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 he took the damsel by the hand, and said to her, Talitha cumi: which is, being interpreted, Damsel (I say to 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 forthwith the damsel arose, and walked; for she was [of the age] of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 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 strictly that no man should know it; and 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.
