Luke 8:26-56 Darby’s Translation

The Gadarene Demoniac Healed

26  And they arrived in the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. 27  And as he got out [of the ship] on the land, a certain man out of the city met him, who had demons a long time, and put on no clothes, and did not abide in a house, but in the tombs. 28  But seeing Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus Son of the Most High God? I beseech thee torment me not. 29  For he had commanded the unclean spirit to go out from the man. For very often it had seized him; and he had been bound, kept with chains and fetters; and breaking the bonds he was driven by the demon into the deserts. 30  And Jesus asked him saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: for many demons had entered into him. 31  And they besought him that he would not command them to go away into the bottomless pit. 32  And there was there a herd of many swine feeding on the mountain, and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into those; and he suffered them. 33  And the demons, going out from the man, entered into the swine, and the herd rushed down the precipice into the lake, and were choked. 34  But they that fed [them], seeing what had happened, fled, and told [it] to the city and to the country. 35  And they went out to see what had happened, and came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting, clothed and sensible, at the feet of Jesus. And they were afraid. 36  And they also who had seen it told them how the possessed man had been healed. 37  And all the multitude of the surrounding country of the Gadarenes asked him to depart from them, for they were possessed with great fear; and he, entering into the ship, returned. 38  But the man out of whom the demons had gone besought him that he might be with him. But he sent him away, saying, 39  Return to thine house and relate how great things God has done for thee. And he went away through the whole city, publishing how great things Jesus had done for him.

Jairus' Daughter and the Woman Who Touched Jesus' Garment

40  And it came to pass when Jesus returned, the crowd received him gladly, for they were all expecting him. 41  And behold, a man came, whose name was Jairus, and he was [a] ruler of the synagogue, and falling at the feet of Jesus besought him to come to his house, 42  because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. And as he went the crowds thronged him. 43  And a woman who had a flux of blood since twelve years, who, having spent all her living on physicians, could not be cured by any one, 44  coming up behind, touched the hem of his garment, and immediately her flux of blood stopped. 45  And Jesus said, Who has touched me? But all denying, Peter and those with him said, Master, the crowds close thee in and press upon thee, and sayest thou, Who has touched me? 46  And Jesus said, Some one has touched me, for I have known that power has gone out from me. 47  And the woman, seeing that she was not hid, came trembling, and falling down before him declared before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was immediately healed. 48  And he said to her, [Be of good courage,] daughter; thy faith has healed thee; go in peace. 49  While he was yet speaking, comes some one from the ruler of the synagogue, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher. 50  But Jesus, hearing it, answered him saying, Fear not: only believe, and she shall be made well. 51  And when he came to the house he suffered no one to go in but Peter and John and James and the father of the child and the mother. 52  And all were weeping and lamenting her. But he said, Do not weep, for she has not died, but sleeps. 53  And they derided him, knowing that she had died. 54  But he, having turned them all out and taking hold of her hand, cried saying, Child, arise. 55  And her spirit returned, and immediately she rose up; and he commanded [something] to eat to be given to her. 56  And her parents were amazed; but he enjoined them to tell no one what had happened.
