Luke 8

8:1 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every
 city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the
 kingdom of God: and the twelve [were] with him,
8:2 And certain women, who had been healed of evil spirits and
 infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven
8:3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna,
 and many others, who ministered to him of their substance.
8:4 And when many people were collected, and had come to him out
 of every city, he spoke by a parable:
8:5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell
 by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the
 air devoured it.
8:6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up,
 it withered, because it lacked moisture.
8:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with
 it, and choked it.
8:8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bore fruit
 a hundred-fold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He
 that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
8:9 And his disciples asked him, saying, What doth this parable
8:10 And he said, To you it is given to know the mysteries of
 the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they
 may not see, and hearing they may not understand.
8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
8:12 Those by the way side, are they that hear; then cometh the
 devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they
 should believe and be saved.
8:13 They on the rock [are they], who, when they hear, receive
 the word with joy; and these have no root, who for a while
 believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
8:14 And that which fell among thorns are they, who, when they
 have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and
 pleasures of [this] life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
8:15 But that on the good ground are they, who in an honest and
 good heart, having heard the word, keep [it], and bring forth
 fruit with patience.
8:16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a
 vessel, or putteth [it] under a bed; but setteth [it] on a
 candlestick, that they who enter in may see the light.
8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest;
 neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known, and come
8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whoever hath, to him
 shall be given; and whoever hath not, from him shall be taken
 even that which he seemeth to have.
8:19 Then came to him [his] mother and his brethren, and could
 not come near to him for the crowd.
8:20 And it was told to him [by certain], who said, Thy mother
 and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.
8:21 And he answered and said to them, My mother and my brethren
 are these who hear the word of God, and do it.
8:22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a
 boat with his disciples: and he said to them, Let us go over to
 the other side of the lake. And they lanched forth.
8:23 But as they sailed, he fell asleep: and there came down a
 storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled [with water],
 and were in jeopardy.
8:24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master,
 master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind, and the
 raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
8:25 And he said to them, Where is your faith? And they being
 afraid, wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is
 this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey
8:26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is
 over against Galilee.
8:27 And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the
 city a certain man, who had demons a long time, and wore no
 clothes, neither abode in [any] house, but in the tombs.
8:28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him,
 and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus,
 [thou] Son of God most high? I beseech thee torment me not.
8:29 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the
 man. For often it had caught him, and he was kept bound with
 chains, and in fetters: and he broke the bands, and was driven
 by the demon into the wilderness.)
8:30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said,
 Legion: because many demons had entered into him.
8:31 And they besought him, that he would not command them to go
 out into the deep.
8:32 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 them. And he suffered them.
8:33 Then the demons went out of the man, and entered into the
 swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the
 lake, and were choked.
8:34 When they that fed [them] saw what was done, they fled, and
 went and told [it] in the city and in the country.
8:35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus,
 and found the man out of whom the demons had departed, sitting
 at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they
 were afraid.
8:36 They also who saw [it], told them by what means he that was
 possessed by the demons was healed.
8:37 Then the whole multitude of the surrounding country of the
 Gadarenes, besought him to depart from them: for they were
 taken with great fear. And he went into the boat, and returned.
8:38 Now the man out of whom the demons had departed, besought
 him that he might be with him. But Jesus sent him away, saying,
8:39 Return to thy own house, and show how great things God hath
 done to thee. And he went away and published throughout the
 whole city, how great things Jesus had done to him.
8:40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus had returned, the
 people [gladly] received him: for they were all waiting for
8:41 And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a
 ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at the feet of Jesus,
 and besought him that he would come into his house:
8:42 For he had one daughter only, about twelve years of age,
 and she lay dying. (But as he was going, the people thronged
8:43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, who had
 spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed
 by any,
8:44 Came behind [him], and touched the border of his garment:
 and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
8:45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter, and
 they that were with him, said, Master, the multitude throng
 thee, and press [thee], and sayest thou, Who touched me?
8:46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive
 that virtue hath gone out of me.
8:47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came
 trembling, and falling down before him, she declared to him
 before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and
 how she was healed immediately.
8:48 And he said to her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith
 hath made thee whole; go in peace.
8:49 While he was yet speaking, there cometh one from the house
 of the ruler of the synagogue, saying to him, Thy daughter is
 dead: trouble not the Master.
8:50 But when Jesus heard [it], he answered him, saying, Fear
 not: believe only, and she shall be healed.
8:51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go
 in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the
 mother of the maiden.
8:52 And all wept and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not: she
 is not dead, but sleepeth.
8:53 And they derided him, knowing that she was dead.
8:54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and
 called, saying, Maid, arise.
8:55 And her spirit came again, and she arose immediately: and
 he commanded to give her food.
8:56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that
 they should tell no man what was done.
