Mark 5

CEB 1 Jesus and his disciples came to the other side of the lake, to the region of the Gerasenes. NRS 1 They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gerasenes. CEB 2 As soon as Jesus got out of the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit came out of the tombs. NRS 2 And when he had stepped out of the boat, immediately a man out of the tombs with an unclean spirit met him. CEB 3 This man lived among the tombs, and no one was ever strong enough to restrain him, even with a chain. NRS 3 He lived among the tombs; and no one could restrain him any more, even with a chain; CEB 4 He had been secured many times with leg irons and chains, but he broke the chains and smashed the leg irons. No one was tough enough to control him. NRS 4 for he had often been restrained with shackles and chains, but the chains he wrenched apart, and the shackles he broke in pieces; and no one had the strength to subdue him. CEB 5 Night and day in the tombs and the hills, he would howl and cut himself with stones. NRS 5 Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always howling and bruising himself with stones. CEB 6 When he saw Jesus from far away, he ran and knelt before him, NRS 6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and bowed down before him; CEB 7 shouting, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won't torture me!" NRS 7 and he shouted at the top of his voice, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me." CEB 8 He said this because Jesus had already commanded him, "Unclean spirit, come out of the man!" NRS 8 For he had said to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!" CEB 9 Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He responded, "Legion is my name, because we are many." NRS 9 Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He replied, "My name is Legion; for we are many." CEB 10 They pleaded with Jesus not to send them out of that region. NRS 10 He begged him earnestly not to send them out of the country. CEB 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the hillside. NRS 11 Now there on the hillside a great herd of swine was feeding; CEB 12 "Send us into the pigs!" they begged. "Let us go into the pigs!" NRS 12 and the unclean spirits begged him, "Send us into the swine; let us enter them." CEB 13 Jesus gave them permission, so the unclean spirits left the man and went into the pigs. Then the herd of about two thousand pigs rushed down the cliff into the lake and drowned. NRS 13 So he gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out and entered the swine; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and were drowned in the sea. CEB 14 Those who tended the pigs ran away and told the story in the city and in the countryside. People came to see what had happened. NRS 14 The swineherds ran off and told it in the city and in the country. Then people came to see what it was that had happened. CEB 15 They came to Jesus and saw the man who used to be demon-possessed. They saw the very man who had been filled with many demons sitting there fully dressed and completely sane, and they were filled with awe. NRS 15 They came to Jesus and saw the demoniac sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the legion; and they were afraid. CEB 16 Those who had actually seen what had happened to the demon-possessed man told the others about the pigs. NRS 16 Those who had seen what had happened to the demoniac and to the swine reported it. CEB 17 Then they pleaded with Jesus to leave their region. NRS 17 Then they began to beg Jesus to leave their neighborhood. CEB 18 While he was climbing into the boat, the one who had been demon-possessed pleaded with Jesus to let him come along as one of his disciples. NRS 18 As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed by demons begged him that he might be with him. CEB 19 But Jesus wouldn't allow it. "Go home to your own people," Jesus said, "and tell them what the Lord has done for you and how he has shown you mercy." NRS 19 But Jesus refused, and said to him, "Go home to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and what mercy he has shown you." CEB 20 The man went away and began to proclaim in the Ten Cities all that Jesus had done for him, and everyone was amazed. NRS 20 And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed. CEB 21 Jesus crossed the lake again, and on the other side a large crowd gathered around him on the shore. NRS 21 When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered around him; and he was by the sea. CEB 22 Jairus, one of the synagogue leaders, came forward. When he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet NRS 22 Then one of the leaders of the synagogue named Jairus came and, when he saw him, fell at his feet CEB 23 and pleaded with him, "My daughter is about to die. Please, come and place your hands on her so that she can be healed and live." NRS 23 and begged him repeatedly, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." CEB 24 So Jesus went with him. A swarm of people were following Jesus, crowding in on him. NRS 24 So he went with him. And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. CEB 25 A woman was there who had been bleeding for twelve years. NRS 25 Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. CEB 26 She had suffered a lot under the care of many doctors, and had spent everything she had without getting any better. In fact, she had gotten worse. NRS 26 She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. CEB 27 Because she had heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his clothes. NRS 27 She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, CEB 28 She was thinking, If I can just touch his clothes, I'll be healed. NRS 28 for she said, "If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well." CEB 29 Her bleeding stopped immediately, and she sensed in her body that her illness had been healed. NRS 29 Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. CEB 30 At that very moment, Jesus recognized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched my clothes?" NRS 30 Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, "Who touched my clothes?" CEB 31 His disciples said to him, "Don't you see the crowd pressing against you? Yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?'" NRS 31 And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, "Who touched me?' " CEB 32 But Jesus looked around carefully to see who had done it. NRS 32 He looked all around to see who had done it. CEB 33 The woman, full of fear and trembling, came forward. Knowing what had happened to her, she fell down in front of Jesus and told him the whole truth. NRS 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. CEB 34 He responded, "Daughter, your faith has healed you; go in peace, healed from your disease." NRS 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease." CEB 35 While Jesus was still speaking with her, messengers came from the synagogue leader's house, saying to Jairus, "Your daughter has died. Why bother the teacher any longer?" NRS 35 While he was still speaking, some people came from the leader's house to say, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further?" CEB 36 But Jesus overheard their report and said to the synagogue leader, "Don't be afraid; just keep trusting." NRS 36 But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." CEB 37 He didn't allow anyone to follow him except Peter, James, and John, James' brother. NRS 37 He allowed no one to follow him except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James. CEB 38 They came to the synagogue leader's house, and he saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. NRS 38 When they came to the house of the leader of the synagogue, he saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. CEB 39 He went in and said to them, "What's all this commotion and crying about? The child isn't dead. She's only sleeping." NRS 39 When he had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a commotion and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." CEB 40 They laughed at him, but he threw them all out. Then, taking the child's parents and his disciples with him, he went to the room where the child was. NRS 40 And they laughed at him. Then he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. CEB 41 Taking her hand, he said to her, "Talitha koum," which means, "Young woman, get up." NRS 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, "Talitha cum," which means, "Little girl, get up!" CEB 42 Suddenly the young woman got up and began to walk around. She was 12 years old. They were shocked! NRS 42 And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about (she was twelve years of age). At this they were overcome with amazement. CEB 43 He gave them strict orders that no one should know what had happened. Then he told them to give her something to eat. NRS 43 He strictly ordered them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.
