THE BIBLE VERSES SOURCES


THE HEALING OF THE GERASENE DEMONIAC AND
JAIRUS'S DAUGHTER AND WOMAN WITH HEMORRHAGE
LUKE 8:26-39  /  8:40-56



Luke
Chapter 8




26
Then they sailed to the territory of the Gerasenes, 9 which is opposite Galilee.
27
When he came ashore a man from the town who was possessed by demons met him. For a long time he had not worn clothes; he did not live in a house, but lived among the tombs.
28
When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him; in a loud voice he shouted, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!"
29
For he had ordered the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (It had taken hold of him many times, and he used to be bound with chains and shackles as a restraint, but he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into deserted places.)
30
Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" 10 He replied, "Legion," because many demons had entered him.
31
And they pleaded with him not to order them to depart to the abyss. 11
32
A herd of many swine was feeding there on the hillside, and they pleaded with him to allow them to enter those swine; and he let them.
33
The demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.
34
When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran away and reported the incident in the town and throughout the countryside.
35
People came out to see what had happened and, when they approached Jesus, they discovered the man from whom the demons had come out sitting at his feet. 12 He was clothed and in his right mind, and they were seized with fear.
36
Those who witnessed it told them how the possessed man had been saved.
37
The entire population of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them because they were seized with great fear. So he got into a boat and returned.
38
The man from whom the demons had come out begged to remain with him, but he sent him away, saying,
39
"Return home and recount what God has done for you." The man went off and proclaimed throughout the whole town what Jesus had done for him.

 



40
13 When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
41
And a man named Jairus, an official of the synagogue, came forward. He fell at the feet of Jesus and begged him to come to his house,
42
because he had an only daughter, 14 about twelve years old, and she was dying. As he went, the crowds almost crushed him.
43
And a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years, 15 who (had spent her whole livelihood on doctors and) was unable to be cured by anyone,
44
came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. Immediately her bleeding stopped.
45
Jesus then asked, "Who touched me?" While all were denying it, Peter said, "Master, the crowds are pushing and pressing in upon you."
46
But Jesus said, "Someone has touched me; for I know that power has gone out from me."
47
When the woman realized that she had not escaped notice, she came forward trembling. Falling down before him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched him and how she had been healed immediately.
48
He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace."
49
While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue official's house arrived and said, "Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer."
50
On hearing this, Jesus answered him, "Do not be afraid; just have faith and she will be saved."
51
When he arrived at the house he allowed no one to enter with him except Peter and John and James, and the child's father and mother.
52
16 All were weeping and mourning for her, when he said, "Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping."
53
And they ridiculed him, because they knew that she was dead.
54
But he took her by the hand and called to her, "Child, arise!"
55
Her breath returned and she immediately arose. He then directed that she should be given something to eat.
56
Her parents were astounded, and he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.
