Matthew 8:1-17 New American Standard Bible

Jesus Cleanses a Leper

8 1  When Jesus came down from the mountain , large crowds followed Him. 2  And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said , "Lord , if You are willing , You can make me clean ." 3  Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying , "I am willing ; be cleansed ." And immediately his leprosy was cleansed . 4  And Jesus said to him, " See that you tell no one ; but go , show yourself to the priest and present the offering that Moses commanded , as a testimony to them."

A Centurion's Servant Healed

5  And when Jesus entered Capernaum , a centurion came to Him, imploring Him, 6  and saying , "Lord , my servant is lying paralyzed at home , fearfully tormented ." 7  Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him." 8  But the centurion said , "Lord , I am not worthy for You to come under my roof , but just say the word , and my servant will be healed . 9  "For I also am a man under authority , with soldiers under me; and I say to this one , 'Go !' and he goes , and to another , 'Come !' and he comes , and to my slave , 'Do this !' and he does it." 10  Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following , "Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel . 11  "I say to you that many will come from east and west , and recline at the table with Abraham , Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven ; 12  but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness ; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth ." 13  And Jesus said to the centurion , "Go ; it shall be done for you as you have believed ." And the servant was healed that very moment .

Jesus Heals Peter's Mother-in-Law

14  When Jesus came into Peter's home , He saw his mother-in-law lying sick in bed with a fever . 15  He touched her hand , and the fever left her; and she got up and waited on Him. 16  When evening came , they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed ; and He cast out the spirits with a word , and healed all who were ill e . 17  This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet : " HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND CARRIED AWAY OUR DISEASES ."
