Mark Chapter 5 (Index)

001  And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

002  And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

003  Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:

004  Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

005  And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

006  But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

007  And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

008  For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

009  And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

010  And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.

011  Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.

012  And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.

013  And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

014  And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.

015  And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

016  And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

017  And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

018  And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

019  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

020  And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.

021  And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.

022  And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

023  And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

024  And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.

025  And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

026  And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

027  When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.

028  For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

029  And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

030  And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

031  And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

032  And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

033  But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.

034  And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

035  While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

036  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

037  And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.

038  And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

039  And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

040  And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

041  And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

042  And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

043  And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
