Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy
Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.
As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy
met him. They stood at a distance
and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”
When he saw them, he said,
“Go, show yourselves to the priests.”
And as they went, they were cleansed.
One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.
He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.
“Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”
Then he said to him,
“Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
The Greek word traditionally translated "leprosy" was used for various diseases affecting the skin.
