Matthew 8:1-17 Darby’s Translation

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

8 1  And when he had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. 2  And behold, a leper came up to [him] and did him homage, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou art able to cleanse me. 3  And he stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, I will; be cleansed. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4  And Jesus says to him, See thou tell no man, but go, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift which Moses ordained, for a testimony to them.

A Centurion's Servant Healed

5  And when he had entered into Capernaum, a centurion came to him, beseeching him, 6  and saying, Lord, my servant lies paralytic in the house, suffering grievously. 7  And Jesus says to him, I will come and heal him. 8  And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not fit that thou shouldest enter under my roof; but only speak a word, and my servant shall be healed. 9  For I also am a man under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say to this [one], Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my bondman, Do this, and he does it. 10  And when Jesus heard it, he wondered, and said to those who followed, Verily I say unto you, Not even in Israel have I found so great faith. 11  But I say unto you, that many shall come from [the] rising and setting [sun], and shall lie down at table 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 teeth. 13  And Jesus said to the centurion, Go, and as thou hast believed, be it to thee. And his servant was healed in that hour.

Jesus Heals Peter's Mother-in-Law

14  And when Jesus had come to Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law laid down and in a fever; 15  and he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she arose and served him. 16  And when the evening was come, they brought to him many possessed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all that were ill; 17  so that that should be fulfilled which was spoken through Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities and bore our diseases.
