1After he had come down from the mountain large crowds fol owed him. 2Suddenly a man with a virulent skin-disease came up and bowed low in front of him, saying, 'Lord, ifyou are wil ing, you can cleanse me.' 3Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him saying, 'I am willing. Be cleansed.' And his skin-diseasewas cleansed at once. 4Then Jesus said to him, 'Mind you tell no one, but go and show yourself to the priest and make theoffering prescribed by Moses, as evidence to them.' 5When he went into Capernaum a centurion came up and pleaded with him. 6'Sir,' he said, 'my servant is lying at home paralysed and in great pain.' 7Jesus said to him, 'I wil come myself and cure him.' 8The centurion replied, 'Sir, I am not worthy to have you under my roof; just give the word and myservant will be cured. 9For I am under authority myself and have soldiers under me; and I say to one man, "Go," and he goes;to another, "Come here," and he comes; to my servant, "Do this," and he does it.' 10When Jesus heard this he was astonished and said to those following him, 'In truth I tell you, in no onein Israel have I found faith as great as this. 11And I tel you that many will come from east and west and sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacobat the feast in the kingdom of Heaven; 12but the children of the kingdom wil be thrown out into the darkness outside, where there wil beweeping and grinding of teeth.' 13And to the centurion Jesus said, 'Go back, then; let this be done for you, as your faith demands.' Andthe servant was cured at that moment. 14And going into Peter's house Jesus found Peter's mother-in-law in bed and feverish. 15He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to serve him. 16That evening they brought him many who were possessed by devils. He drove out the spirits with acommand and cured al who were sick. 17This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: He himself bore our sicknesses away andcarried our diseases. 18When Jesus saw the crowd al about him he gave orders to leave for the other side. 19One of the scribes then came up and said to him, 'Master, I wil fol ow you wherever you go.' 20Jesus said, 'Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere tolay his head.' 21Another man, one of the disciples, said to him, 'Lord, let me go and bury my father first.' 22But Jesus said, 'Fol ow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.' 23Then he got into the boat fol owed by his disciples. 24Suddenly a storm broke over the lake, so violent that the boat was being swamped by the waves. Buthe was asleep. 25So they went to him and woke him saying, 'Save us, Lord, we are lost!' 26And he said to them, 'Why are you so frightened, you who have so little faith?' And then he stood upand rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27They were astounded and said, 'Whatever kind of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obeyhim?' 28When he reached the territory of the Gadarenes on the other side, two demoniacs came towards himout of the tombs -- they were so dangerously violent that nobody could use that path. 29Suddenly they shouted, 'What do you want with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torture usbefore the time?' 30Now some distance away there was a large herd of pigs feeding, 31and the devils pleaded with Jesus, 'If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.' 32And he said to them, 'Go then,' and they came out and made for the pigs; and at that the whole herdcharged down the cliff into the lake and perished in the water. 33The herdsmen ran off and made for the city, where they told the whole story, including what hadhappened to the demoniacs. 34Suddenly the whole city set out to meet Jesus; and as soon as they saw him they implored him toleave their neighbourhood.
