Chapter 8Matthew

8

1 And when he was come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. 2 And lo, a leper came to him and worshiped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst cleanse me. 3 And he stretched forth his :hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be cleansed. And straightway his :leprosy was cleansed. 4 And :Jesus saith to him, See thou tell no one; but go, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Mōsēs commanded, for a witness to them. 5 And when he was entered into Capernaum, a centurion came to him, beseeching him 6 and saying, Lord, my :boy lieth in the house a paralytic, grievously tormented. 7 He saith to him, I will come and heal him. 8 And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not fit that thou shouldest come under MY :roof: but only say the word, and my :boy shall be healed. 9 For I also am a man set under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my :bondman, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 And when :Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Amen I say unto you, With no one in :Israel have I found so great faith. 11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from east and west, and shall †sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of the heavens: 12 but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into the outer :darkness: THERE shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth. 13 And :Jesus said to the centurion, Go; as thou hast believed, so be it to thee. And the boy was healed in that :hour. 14 And when :Jesus was come into the house of Peter, he saw his wife’s :mother lying sick and in a fever. 15 And he touched her :hand, and the fever left her; and she arose, and ministered to him. 16 And when evening was come, they brought to him many demoniacs: and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all that were ill: 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our :infirmities, and bare the sicknesses.

18 And seeing a crowd about him :Jesus commanded to depart unto the other side. 19 And one scribe came to him and said, Teacher, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 20 And :Jesus saith to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven have nests; but the Son of :man hath not where to lay his :head. 21 And another of the disciples said to him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my :father. 22 But :Jesus saith to him, Follow me; and leave the dead to bury their own :dead. 23 And when he was entered into a boat, his :disciples followed him. 24 And lo, a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Save, Lord; we perish. 26 And he saith to 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 And the men marveled, 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 Gadarenes, two demoniacs met him, coming forth out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no one could pass by that :way. 29 And lo, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Son of :God? art thou come hither to torment us before the season? 30 Now far from them was a herd of many swine feeding. 31 And the †demons besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, send us into the herd of :swine. 32 And he said to them, Go. And they came out, and went into the swine: and lo, the whole herd rushed down the steep into the sea, and they died in the waters. 33 And they that fed them fled, and went away into the city, and told everything, and what befell the demoniacs. 34 And lo, all the city came out to meet :Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart from their :borders.
