Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Yeshua had come down from the hill, large crowds followed him. 1 When he came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him.
2 Then a man afflicted with tzara`at came, kneeled down in front of him and said, "Sir, if you are willing, you can make me clean." 2 A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."
3 Yeshua reached out his hand, touched him and said, "I am willing! Be cleansed!" And at once he was cleansed from his tzara`at. 3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.
4 Then Yeshua said to him, "See that you tell no one; but as a testimony to the people, go and let the cohen examine you, and offer the sacrifice that Moshe commanded." 4 Then Jesus said to him, "See that you don't tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."
5 As Yeshua entered K'far-Nachum, a Roman army officer came up and pleaded for help. 5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help.
6 "Sir, my orderly is lying at home paralyzed and suffering terribly!" 6 "Lord," he said, "my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering."
7 Yeshua said, "I will go and heal him." 7 Jesus said to him, "I will go and heal him."
8 But the officer answered, "Sir, I am unfit to have you come into my home. Rather, if you will only give the command, my orderly will recover. 8 The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
9 For I too am a man under authority. I have soldiers under me, and I say to this one, `Go!' and he goes; to another, `Come!' and he comes; to my slave, `Do this!' and he does it." 9 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."
10 On hearing this Yeshua was amazed and said to the people following him, "Yes! I tell you, I have not found anyone in Isra'el with such trust! 10 When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, "I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
11 Moreover, I tell you that many will come from the east and from the west to take their places at the feast in the Kingdom of Heaven with Avraham, Yitz'chak and Ya`akov. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
12 But those born for the Kingdom will be thrown outside in the dark, where people will wail and grind their teeth!" 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
13 Then Yeshua said to the officer, "Go; let it be for you as you have trusted." And his orderly was healed at that very moment. 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! It will be done just as you believed it would." And his servant was healed at that very hour.
14 Yeshua went to Kefa's home and there saw Kefa's mother-in-law sick in bed with a fever. 14 When Jesus came into Peter's house, he saw Peter's mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
15 He touched her hand, the fever left her, and she got up and began helping him. 15 He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him.
16 When evening came, many people held in the power of demons were brought to him. He expelled the spirits with a word and healed all who were ill. 16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.
17 This was done to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet Yesha`yahu, "He himself took our weaknesses and bore our diseases" 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: "He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases."
18 When Yeshua saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake. 18 When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake.
19 A Torah-teacher approached and said to him, "Rabbi, I will follow you wherever you go." 19 Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, "Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go."
20 Yeshua said to him, "The foxes have holes, and the birds flying about have nests, but the Son of Man has no home of his own." 20 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
21 Another of the talmidim said to him, "Sir, first let me go and bury my father." 21 Another disciple said to him, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father."
22 But Yeshua replied, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead." 22 But Jesus told him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead."
23 He boarded the boat, and his talmidim followed. 23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him.
24 Then, without warning, a furious storm arose on the lake, so that waves were sweeping over the boat. But Yeshua was sleeping. 24 Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
25 So they came and roused him, saying, "Sir! Help! We're about to die!" 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
26 He said to them, "Why are you afraid? So little trust you have!" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and there was a dead calm. 26 He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27 The men were astounded. They asked, "What kind of man is this, that even the winds and sea obey him?" 27 The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"
28 When Yeshua arrived at the other side of the lake, in the Gadarenes' territory, there came out of the burial caves two men controlled by demons, so violent that no one dared travel on that road. 28 When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way.
29 They screamed, "What do you want with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?" 29 "What do you want with us, Son of God?" they shouted. "Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?"
30 Now some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. 30 Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding.
31 The demons begged him, "If you are going to drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs." 31 The demons begged Jesus, "If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs."
32 "All right, go!" he told them. So they came out and went into the pigs, whereupon the entire herd rushed down the hillside into the lake and drowned. 32 He said to them, "Go!" So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water.
33 The swineherds fled, went off to the town and told the whole story, including what had happened to the demonized men. 33 Those tending the pigs ran off, went into the town and reported all this, including what had happened to the demon-possessed men.
34 At this, the whole town came out to meet Yeshua. When they saw him, they begged him to leave their district. 34 Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they pleaded with him to leave their region.
