2 Now a centurion had a slave who was dear to him, who was sick and at the point of death. 2 There a centurion's servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die.
3 When he heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his slave. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant.
4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy to have you do this for him, 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, "This man deserves to have you do this,
5 for he loves our nation, and he built us our synagogue." 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue."
6 And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; 6 So Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: "Lord, don't trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof.
7 therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.
8 For I am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it." 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and that one, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
9 When Jesus heard this he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude that followed him, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith." 9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, "I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel."
10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave well. 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
11 Soon afterward he went to a city called Na'in, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him.
12 As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. 12 As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out--the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her.
13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep." 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, "Don't cry."
14 And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, arise." 14 Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He said, "Young man, I say to you, get up!"
15 And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. 15 The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
