Mark 5

NLT 1 So they arrived at the other side of the lake, in the land of the Gerasenes. NIV 1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. NLT 2 Just as Jesus was climbing from the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit ran out from a cemetery to meet him. NIV 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him. NLT 3 This man lived among the tombs and could not be restrained, even with a chain. NIV 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. NLT 4 Whenever he was put into chains and shackles -- as he often was -- he snapped the chains from his wrists and smashed the shackles. No one was strong enough to control him. NIV 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. NLT 5 All day long and throughout the night, he would wander among the tombs and in the hills, screaming and hitting himself with stones. NIV 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. NLT 6 When Jesus was still some distance away, the man saw him. He ran to meet Jesus and fell down before him. NIV 6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. NLT 7 He gave a terrible scream, shrieking, "Why are you bothering me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? For God's sake, don't torture me!" NIV 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!" NLT 8 For Jesus had already said to the spirit, "Come out of the man, you evil spirit." NIV 8 For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!" NLT 9 Then Jesus asked, "What is your name?" And the spirit replied, "Legion, because there are many of us here inside this man." NIV 9 Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many." NLT 10 Then the spirits begged him again and again not to send them to some distant place. NIV 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area. NLT 11 There happened to be a large herd of pigs feeding on the hillside nearby. NIV 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. NLT 12 "Send us into those pigs," the evil spirits begged. NIV 12 The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them." NLT 13 Jesus gave them permission. So the evil spirits came out of the man and entered the pigs, and the entire herd of two thousand pigs plunged down the steep hillside into the lake, where they drowned. NIV 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. NLT 14 The herdsmen fled to the nearby city and the surrounding countryside, spreading the news as they ran. Everyone rushed out to see for themselves. NIV 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. NLT 15 A crowd soon gathered around Jesus, but they were frightened when they saw the man who had been demon possessed, for he was sitting there fully clothed and perfectly sane. NIV 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. NLT 16 Those who had seen what happened to the man and to the pigs told everyone about it, NIV 16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man--and told about the pigs as well. NLT 17 and the crowd began pleading with Jesus to go away and leave them alone. NIV 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region. NLT 18 When Jesus got back into the boat, the man who had been demon possessed begged to go, too. NIV 18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. NLT 19 But Jesus said, "No, go home to your friends, and tell them what wonderful things the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been." NIV 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." NLT 20 So the man started off to visit the Ten Towns of that region and began to tell everyone about the great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed at what he told them. NIV 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. NLT 21 When Jesus went back across to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him on the shore. NIV 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. NLT 22 A leader of the local synagogue, whose name was Jairus, came and fell down before him, NIV 22 Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet NLT 23 pleading with him to heal his little daughter. "She is about to die," he said in desperation. "Please come and place your hands on her; heal her so she can live." NIV 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." NLT 24 Jesus went with him, and the crowd thronged behind. NIV 24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him. NLT 25 And there was a woman in the crowd who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years. NIV 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. NLT 26 She had suffered a great deal from many doctors through the years and had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she was worse. NIV 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. NLT 27 She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched the fringe of his robe. NIV 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, NLT 28 For she thought to herself, "If I can just touch his clothing, I will be healed." NIV 28 because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed." NLT 29 Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel that she had been healed! NIV 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. NLT 30 Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" NIV 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" NLT 31 His disciples said to him, "All this crowd is pressing around you. How can you ask, 'Who touched me?'" NIV 31 "You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?' " NLT 32 But he kept on looking around to see who had done it. NIV 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. NLT 33 Then the frightened woman, trembling at the realization of what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and told him what she had done. NIV 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. NLT 34 And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. You have been healed." NIV 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering." NLT 35 While he was still speaking to her, messengers arrived from Jairus's home with the message, "Your daughter is dead. There's no use troubling the Teacher now." NIV 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?" NLT 36 But Jesus ignored their comments and said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid. Just trust me." NIV 36 Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe." NLT 37 Then Jesus stopped the crowd and wouldn't let anyone go with him except Peter and James and John. NIV 37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. NLT 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw the commotion and the weeping and wailing. NIV 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. NLT 39 He went inside and spoke to the people. "Why all this weeping and commotion?" he asked. "The child isn't dead; she is only asleep." NIV 39 He went in and said to them, "Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep." NLT 40 The crowd laughed at him, but he told them all to go outside. Then he took the girl's father and mother and his three disciples into the room where the girl was lying. NIV 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. NLT 41 Holding her hand, he said to her, "Get up, little girl!" NIV 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, ""Talitha koum!"" (which means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!"). NLT 42 And the girl, who was twelve years old, immediately stood up and walked around! Her parents were absolutely overwhelmed. NIV 42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. NLT 43 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone what had happened, and he told them to give her something to eat. NIV 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
