  • 1 Now it came to pass afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him,
  • 2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities; Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons,
  • 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance.
  • 4 And when many people had gathered together, and they had come to Him from every city, He spoke by a parable:
  • 5 “A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it.
  • 6 And some fell on a rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it lacked moisture.
  • 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it.
  • 8 But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold.” And when He had said these things He shouted, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
  • 9 Then His disciples asked Him, saying, “What does this parable mean?”
  • 10 And He said, “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the others in parables, that ‘Seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’
  • 11 “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
  • 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
  • 13 The ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; but these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.
  • 14 Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.
  • 15 But those on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with an honest and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.
  • 16 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter in may see the light.
  • 17 Because, nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.
  • 18 Therefore take heed how you hear. Because, whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken from him.”
  • 19 Then His mother and brethren came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd.
  • 20 And it was told Him by some, who said, “Your mother and Your brethren are standing outside, desiring to see You.”
  • 21 But He replied and said to them, “My mother and My brethren are these who hear the word of God and do it.”
  • 22 Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.” And they launched out.
  • 23 But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy.
  • 24 And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm.
  • 25 And He said to them, “Where is your faith?” But they being afraid marveled, saying to one another, “What kind of man is this? Because, He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!”
  • 26 Then they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee.
  • 27 And when He went out on the land, there met Him a certain man from the city who had demons for a long time and wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in the tombs.
  • 28 When he saw Jesus, he yelled out, fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, You Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me!”
  • 29 Because, He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. Because, it had often seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness.
  • 30 Jesus asked him, saying, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.
  • 31 And they begged Him that He would not command them to go out into the abyss.
  • 32 Now a herd of many swine was feeding there on the mountain. So they begged Him that He would permit them to enter them. And He permitted them.
  • 33 Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake and drowned.
  • 34 When those who fed them saw what had happened, they fled and told it in the city and in the country.
  • 35 Then they went out to see what had happened, and came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid.
  • 36 They also who had seen it told them by what means he who had been demon possessed was healed.
  • 37 Then the entire population of the surrounding region of the Gadarenes begged Him to depart from them, because they were seized with great fear. And He got into the boat and returned back again.
  • 38 Now the man from whom the demons had departed begged Him that he might be with Him. But Jesus sent him away, saying,
  • 39 “Return to your own house, and show what great things God has done for you.” And he went his way and proclaimed throughout the entire city what great things Jesus had done for him.
  • 40 And it came to pass, when Jesus returned, that the people welcomed Him gladly, because they were all waiting for Him.
  • 41 And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus’ feet and begged Him that He would come to his house,
  • 42 because, he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as He went, the people swarmed Him.
  • 43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,
  • 44 came behind Him and touched the edge of His clothes. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
  • 45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the crowds swarm and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
  • 46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, because I perceive power has gone out from Me.”
  • 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him before all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
  • 48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
  • 49 While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher.”
  • 50 But when Jesus heard it, He responded to him, saying, “Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.”
  • 51 And when He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl.
  • 52 Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, “Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping.”
  • 53 And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead.
  • 54 But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Little girl, arise.”
  • 55 Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given food to eat.
  • 56 And her parents were astonished, but He commanded them that they should tell no one what had happened.
