Luke 8

NKJV 1 Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of 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, NKJV 2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities--Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons, 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; NKJV 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance. 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. NKJV 4 And when a great multitude had gathered, and they had come to Him from every city, He spoke by a parable: NIV 4 While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: NKJV 5 "A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air 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. NKJV 6 Some fell on rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it lacked moisture. NIV 6 Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. NKJV 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. NIV 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. NKJV 8 But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold." When He had said these things He cried, "He 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." NKJV 9 Then His disciples asked Him, saying, "What does this parable mean?" NIV 9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant. NKJV 10 And He said, "To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, that 'Seeing they may not see, And hearing they may not understand.' 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.' NKJV 11 "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. NIV 11 "This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. NKJV 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should 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. NKJV 13 But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation 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. NKJV 14 Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no 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. NKJV 15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. 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. NKJV 16 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may 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. NKJV 17 For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not 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. NKJV 18 Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken 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." NKJV 19 Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach 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. NKJV 20 And it was told Him by some, who said, "Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You." NIV 20 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you." NKJV 21 But He answered and said to them, "My mother and My brothers are these 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." NKJV 22 Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side of the lake." And they launched out. 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. NKJV 23 But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. 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. NKJV 24 And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a 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. NKJV 25 But He said to them, "Where is your faith?" And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, "Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and 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." NKJV 26 Then they sailed to the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee. NIV 26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee. NKJV 27 And when He stepped out on the land, there met Him a certain man from the city who had demons for a long time. And he wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in 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. NKJV 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, "What have I 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!" NKJV 29 For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had often seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness. 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. NKJV 30 Jesus asked him, saying, "What is your name?" And he said, "Legion," because many demons had entered him. NIV 30 Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "Legion," he replied, because many demons had gone into him. NKJV 31 And they begged Him that He would not command them to go out into the abyss. NIV 31 And they begged him repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss. NKJV 32 Now a herd of many swine was feeding there on the mountain. So they begged Him that He would permit them to enter them. 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. NKJV 33 Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and 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. NKJV 34 When those who fed them saw what had happened, they fled and told it in the city and in the country. NIV 34 When those tending the pigs saw what had happened, they ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, NKJV 35 Then they went out to see what had happened, and came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. 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. NKJV 36 They also who had seen it told them by what means he who had been demon-possessed was healed. NIV 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured. NKJV 37 Then the whole multitude of the surrounding region of the Gadarenes asked Him to depart from them, for they were seized with great fear. And 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. NKJV 38 Now the man from whom the demons had departed begged Him that he might be with Him. But Jesus 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, NKJV 39 "Return to your own house, and tell what great things God has done for you." And he went his way and proclaimed throughout the whole city what great things 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. NKJV 40 So it was, when Jesus returned, that the multitude welcomed Him, for they were all waiting for Him. NIV 40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. NKJV 41 And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus' feet and begged 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 NKJV 42 for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as He went, the multitudes thronged 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. NKJV 43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, NIV 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. NKJV 44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. NIV 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. NKJV 45 And Jesus said, "Who touched Me?" When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, "Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?' " NIV 45 "Who touched me?" Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you." NKJV 46 But Jesus said, "Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me." NIV 46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me." NKJV 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how 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. NKJV 48 And He said to her, "Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace." NIV 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace." NKJV 49 While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, "Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher." 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." NKJV 50 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, "Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well." NIV 50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed." NKJV 51 When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. 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. NKJV 52 Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, "Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping." NIV 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. "Stop wailing," Jesus said. "She is not dead but asleep." NKJV 53 And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead. NIV 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. NKJV 54 But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, "Little girl, arise." NIV 54 But he took her by the hand and said, "My child, get up!" NKJV 55 Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given something to eat. NIV 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. NKJV 56 And her parents were astonished, but He charged 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.
