1And he 2went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And 3he was teaching them 4on the Sabbath,
and 5they were astonished at his teaching, 6for his word possessed authority.
And 7in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice,
"Ha!8What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? 9I know who you are--10the Holy One of God."
But Jesus 11rebuked him, saying, "Be silent and come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm.
And 12they were all amazed and said to one another, "What is this word? 13For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!"
And 14reports about him went out into every place in the surrounding region.
