2. And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
4. because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him.
5. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.
7. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me."
9. Then He asked him, "What is your name?" And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion; for we are many."
13. And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea.
14. So those who fed the swine fled, and they told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that had happened.
15. Then they came to Jesus, and saw the one who had been demon-possessed and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid.
16. And those who saw it told them how it happened to him who had been demon-possessed, and about the swine.
18. And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged Him that he might be with Him.
19. However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, "Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you."
20. And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all that Jesus had done for him; and all marveled.
21. Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea.
22. And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet
23. and begged Him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live."
26. and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
29. Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
30. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched My clothes?"
31. But His disciples said to Him, "You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, Who touched Me?' "
33. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
34. And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."
35. While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue's house who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?"
36. As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not be afraid; only believe."
38. Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly.
39. When He came in, He said to them, "Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping."
40. And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying.
42. Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.
