Luke 8

LEB 1 And it happened that {afterward} also he was going about from [one] town and village [to another] preaching and proclaiming the good news concerning the kingdom of God, and the twelve [were] with him, NIV 1 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, LEB 2 and some women who had been healed of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (who was called Magdalene), from whom seven demons had gone out, NIV 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; LEB 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza (Herod's household manager), and Susanna, and many others who were helping to support them from their possessions. NIV 3 Joanna the wife of Cuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means. LEB 4 And [while] a large crowd was gathering and [they] were going to him from town [after town], he spoke by means of a parable: NIV 4 While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: LEB 5 "The sower went out to sow his seed, and while he was sowing, {some seed} fell on the side of the path and was trampled under foot, and the birds of the sky devoured it. NIV 5 "A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds of the air ate it up. LEB 6 And other [seed] fell on the rock, and [when it] came up, it withered, because it did not have moisture. NIV 6 Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. LEB 7 And other [seed] fell in the midst of the thorn plants, and the thorn plants grew up with [it] [and] choked it. NIV 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. LEB 8 And other [seed] fell on the good soil, and [when it] came up, it produced a hundred times as much grain." [As he] said these [things], he called out, "The one who has ears to hear, let him hear!" NIV 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown." When he said this, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." LEB 9 And his disciples asked him what this parable meant. NIV 9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant. LEB 10 And he said, "To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest [they are] in parables, so that 'Seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.'<note: A quotation from Isa 6:9> NIV 10 He said, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, " 'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.' LEB 11 Now the parable means this: the seed is the word of God, NIV 11 "This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. LEB 12 and those beside the path are the ones who have heard. Then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they may not believe [and] be saved. NIV 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. LEB 13 And those on the rock [are those] who receive the word with joy when they hear [it], and these do not have [enough] root, who believe for a time and in a time of testing fall away. NIV 13 Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. LEB 14 And the [seed] that fell into the thorn plants--these are the ones who hear and [as they] go along are choked by the worries and riches and pleasures of life, and they do not bear fruit to maturity. NIV 14 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life's worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. LEB 15 But the [seed] on the good soil--these are the ones who, [after] hearing the word, hold fast to [it] with a noble and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance. NIV 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. LEB 16 "And no one, [after] lighting a lamp, covers it with a jar or puts [it] under a bed, but puts [it] on a lampstand, so that those who come in can see the light. NIV 16 "No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. LEB 17 For nothing is secret that will not become evident, and nothing hidden that will never be known and come to light. NIV 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. LEB 18 Therefore consider how you listen, for whoever has, to him [more] will be given, and whoever does not have, even what he thinks [that he] has will be taken away from him." NIV 18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken from him." LEB 19 Now his mother and brothers came to him, and they were not able to meet with him because of the crowd. NIV 19 Now Jesus' mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. LEB 20 And it was reported to him, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside wanting to see you." NIV 20 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you." LEB 21 But he answered [and] said to them, "These are my mother and my brothers--the ones who hear the word of God and do [it]. NIV 21 He replied, "My mother and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice." LEB 22 Now it happened that on one of the days both he and his disciples got into a boat, and he said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side of the lake." And they set sail, NIV 22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's go over to the other side of the lake." So they got into a boat and set out. LEB 23 and [as] they were sailing, he fell asleep. And a storm of wind came down on the lake, and they were being swamped and were in danger. NIV 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger. LEB 24 And they came [and] woke him up, saying, "Master, master! We are perishing!" So he got up [and] rebuked the wind and the billowing waves of water and they ceased, and it became calm. NIV 24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we're going to drown!" He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. LEB 25 And he said to them, "Where [is] your faith?" But they were afraid [and] were astonished, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that he commands even the winds and the water and they obey him?" NIV 25 "Where is your faith?" he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him." LEB 26 And they sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. NIV 26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee. LEB 27 And [as] he got out on the land, a certain man from the town met [him] who had demons and for a considerable time had not worn clothes and did not live in a house, but among the tombs. NIV 27 When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town. For a long time this man had not worn clothes or lived in a house, but had lived in the tombs. LEB 28 And [when he] saw Jesus, he cried out, fell down before him, and said with a loud voice, "{What do I have to do with you}, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!" NIV 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet, shouting at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don't torture me!" LEB 29 For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For it had seized him many times, and he was bound with chains and shackles [and] was guarded, and breaking the bonds he would be driven by the demon into the deserted places.) NIV 29 For Jesus had commanded the evil spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places. LEB 30 So Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Legion," because many demons had entered into him. NIV 30 Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "Legion," he replied, because many demons had gone into him. LEB 31 And they began imploring him that he would not order them to depart into the abyss. NIV 31 And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss. LEB 32 Now there was a large herd of pigs feeding there on the hill, and they implored him that he would permit them to enter into those [pigs]. And he permitted them. NIV 32 A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into them, and he gave them permission. LEB 33 So the demons came out of the man [and] entered into the pigs, and the herd rushed headlong down the steep slope into the lake and were drowned. NIV 33 When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned. LEB 34 And [when] the herdsmen saw what had happened, they fled and reported [it] in the town and in the countryside. NIV 34 When those tending the pigs saw what had happened, they ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, LEB 35 So they went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus and found the man from whom the demons had gone out sitting [there] clothed and in his right mind, at the feet of Jesus, and they were afraid. NIV 35 and the people went out to see what had happened. When they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus' feet, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid. LEB 36 And those who had seen [it] reported to them how the man who had been demon-possessed had been healed. NIV 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured. LEB 37 And all the people of the surrounding region of the Gerasenes asked him to depart from them, because they had been seized with great fear. So he got into the boat [and] returned. NIV 37 Then all the people of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them, because they were overcome with fear. So he got into the boat and left. LEB 38 And the man from who the demons had gone out was begging him to stay with him, but he sent him away, saying, NIV 38 The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, LEB 39 "Return to your home and tell all that God has done for you." And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole town all that Jesus had done for him. NIV 39 "Return home and tell how much God has done for you." So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him. LEB 40 Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, because they were all waiting for him. NIV 40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. LEB 41 And behold, a man {who was named} Jairus came, and this man was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at the feet of Jesus [and] began imploring him to come to his house, NIV 41 Then a man named Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, came and fell at Jesus' feet, pleading with him to come to his house LEB 42 because {he had} an only daughter, about twelve years [old], and she was dying. Now as he was going, the crowds were pressing against him. NIV 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. LEB 43 And a woman who was {suffering from hemorrhages} for twelve years (who, [although she] had spent all [her] assets on physicians, was not able to be healed by anyone) NIV 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. LEB 44 came up behind [him] [and] touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately {her hemorrhaging} stopped. NIV 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. LEB 45 And Jesus said, "Who [is] the one who touched me?" And [when they] all denied [it], Peter said, "Master, the crowds are pressing you hard and crowding [you]!" NIV 45 "Who touched me?" Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you." LEB 46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me, because I know power has gone out from me." NIV 46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me." LEB 47 And [when] the woman saw that she did not escape notice, she came trembling and falling down before him. In the presence of all the people, she told for what reason she had touched him, and that she was healed immediately. NIV 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. LEB 48 And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace." NIV 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace." LEB 49 [While] he was still speaking, someone came from the synagogue ruler's [house], saying, "Your daughter is dead! Trouble the Teacher no longer!" NIV 49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. "Your daughter is dead," he said. "Don't bother the teacher any more." LEB 50 But Jesus, [when he] heard [this], replied to him, "Do not be afraid! Only believe, and she will be healed." NIV 50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed." LEB 51 Now [when he] came to the house, he did not allow anyone to enter with him except Peter and John and James and the father and mother of the child. NIV 51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child's father and mother. LEB 52 And they were all weeping and mourning for her, but he said, "Do not weep! For she is not dead, but is sleeping." NIV 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. "Stop wailing," Jesus said. "She is not dead but asleep." LEB 53 And they began laughing at him, [because they] knew that she was dead. NIV 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. LEB 54 But he took her hand [and] called, saying, "Child, get up." NIV 54 But he took her by the hand and said, "My child, get up!" LEB 55 And her spirit returned, and she got up immediately, and he ordered [something] to be given to her to eat. NIV 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. LEB 56 And her parents were astonished, but he ordered them to tell no one what had happened. NIV 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
