Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is "Mob,' " he answered - because many demons had gone into him.
The demons begged Jesus not to send them into the abyss.
There was a large herd of pigs near by, feeding on a hillside. So the demons begged Jesus to let them go into the pigs, and he let them.
They went out of the man and into the pigs. The whole herd rushed down the side of the cliff into the lake and was drowned.
The men who had been taking care of the pigs saw what happened, so they ran off and spread the news in the town and among the farms.
People went out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone out sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they were all afraid.
Those who had seen it told the people how the man had been cured.
Then all the people from that territory asked Jesus to go away, because they were terribly afraid. So Jesus got into the boat and left.
The man from whom the demons had gone out begged Jesus, "Let me go with you." But Jesus sent him away, saying,
"Go back home and tell what God has done for you." The man went through the town, telling what Jesus had done for him.
When Jesus returned to the other side of the lake, the people welcomed him, because they had all been waiting for him.
