Then people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
And those who had seen it told them how he who had been possessed with demons was healed.
Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Ger'asenes asked him to depart from them; for they were seized with great fear; so he got into the boat and returned.
The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but he sent him away, saying,
"Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you." And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.
Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
And there came a man named Ja'irus, who was a ruler of the synagogue; and falling at Jesus' feet he besought him to come to his house,
for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. As he went, the people pressed round him.
And a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years and could not be healed by any one,
came up behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment; and immediately her flow of blood ceased.
And Jesus said, "Who was it that touched me?" When all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the multitudes surround you and press upon you!"
