King James VersionMatthew8


1 When he was come down from the moun­tain, great mul­ti­tudes fol­lowed him. 2 And, be­hold, there came a lep­er and wor­shipped him, say­ing, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Je­sus put forth his hand, and touched him, say­ing, I will; be thou clean. And im­me­di­ate­ly his lep­rosy was cleansed. 4 And Je­sus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thy­self to the priest, and of­fer the gift that Moses com­mand­ed, for a tes­ti­mo­ny unto them. 5 And when Je­sus was en­tered into Ca­per­naum, there came unto him a cen­tu­ri­on, be­seech­ing him, 6 And say­ing, Lord, my ser­vant li­eth at home sick of the pal­sy, grievous­ly tor­ment­ed. 7 And Je­sus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The cen­tu­ri­on an­swered and said, Lord, I am not wor­thy that thou shouldest come un­der my roof: but speak the word on­ly, and my ser­vant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man un­der au­thor­i­ty, hav­ing sol­diers un­der me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to an­oth­er, Come, and he cometh; and to my ser­vant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 When Je­sus heard it, he mar­velled, and said to them that fol­lowed, Ver­i­ly I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Is­rael. 11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abra­ham, and Isaac, and Ja­cob, in the king­dom of heav­en. 12 But the chil­dren of the king­dom shall be cast out into out­er dark­ness: there shall be weep­ing and gnash­ing of teeth. 13 And Je­sus said unto the cen­tu­ri­on, Go thy way; and as thou hast be­lieved, so be it done unto thee. And his ser­vant was healed in the self­same hour. 14 And when Je­sus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's moth­er laid, and sick of a fever. 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and min­is­tered unto them. 16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were pos­sessed with dev­ils: and he cast out the spir­its with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be ful­filled which was spo­ken by Esa­ias the prophet, say­ing, Him­self took our in­fir­mi­ties, and bare our sick­ness­es. 18 Now when Je­sus saw great mul­ti­tudes about him, he gave com­mand­ment to de­part unto the oth­er side. 19 And a cer­tain scribe came, and said unto him, Mas­ter, I will fol­low thee whith­er­so­ev­er thou goest. 20 And Je­sus saith unto him, The fox­es have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 21 And an­oth­er of his dis­ci­ples said unto him, Lord, suf­fer me first to go and bury my fa­ther. 22 But Je­sus said unto him, Fol­low me; and let the dead bury their dead. 23 And when he was en­tered into a ship, his dis­ci­ples fol­lowed him. 24 And, be­hold, there arose a great tem­pest in the sea, in­so­much that the ship was cov­ered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his dis­ci­ples came to him, and awoke him, say­ing, Lord, save us: we per­ish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fear­ful, O ye of lit­tle faith? Then he arose, and re­buked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men mar­velled, say­ing, What man­ner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! 28 And when he was come to the oth­er side into the coun­try of the Gerge­senes, there met him two pos­sessed with dev­ils, com­ing out of the tombs, ex­ceed­ing fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 29 And, be­hold, they cried out, say­ing, What have we to do with thee, Je­sus, thou Son of God? art thou come hith­er to tor­ment us be­fore the time? 30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feed­ing. 31 So the dev­ils be­sought him, say­ing, If thou cast us out, suf­fer us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, be­hold, the whole herd of swine ran vi­o­lent­ly down a steep place into the sea, and per­ished in the wa­ters. 33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told ev­ery thing, and what was be­fall­en to the pos­sessed of the dev­ils. 34 And, be­hold, the whole city came out to meet Je­sus: and when they saw him, they be­sought him that he would de­part out of their coasts.
