8:1 And when he had come down from the mountain, many multitudes followed him.
2 And behold, a leper came and worshipped him, saying: Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
3 And he stretched forth his hand and touched him, saying: I will, be clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 And Jesus said to him: See that thou tell no one; but go, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.
5 And when he had entered into Capernaum, there came to him a centurion beseeching him,
6 and saying: Lord, my servant lies in my house palsied, fearfully tormented.
7 He says to him: I will come and cure him.
8 But the centurion answering said: Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but speak only in a word, and my servant shall be restored to health.
9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me; and I say to this one: Go, and he goes; and to another: Come, and he comes; and to my servant: Do this, and he does it.
10 And hearing it Jesus was filled with admiration, and said to those that followed: Verily I say to you, not even in Israel have I found so great faith.
11 But I say to you, that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall recline at tables with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens;
12 but the sons of the kingdom shall go forth into the darkness that is without: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
13 And Jesus said to the centurion: Go; as thou hast believed, be it done for thee. And the servant was restored to health in that hour.
14 And Jesus came into the house of Peter, and saw his mother-in-law lying and ill of a fever.
15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose and ministered to him.
16 But when evening had come, they brought to him many possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and cured all that were sick,
17 that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: Himself took our infirmities and bore our diseases.
18 But Jesus seeing many multitudes about him, gave orders to depart to the other side.
19 And a scribe came and said to him: Teacher, I will follow thee wherever thou goest.
20 And Jesus said to him: The foxes have dens, and the birds of the heaven have roosts, but the Son of man has not where he may lay his head.
21 And another of his disciples said to him: Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.
22 But he said to him: Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.
23 And after he had entered the ship, his disciples followed him.
24 And behold, a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the ship was covered by the waves; but he was sleeping.
25 And they came and awoke him, saying: Lord, save, we perish.
26 And he says to them: Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
27 And the men were astonished, saying: What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?
28 And when he had come to the other side, into the country of the Gadarenes, there met him two men possessed with demons, coming out of the tombs, very fierce, so that no one could pass by that way.
29 And behold, they cried out, saying: What have we to do with thee, Son of God? Hast thou come hither before the time, to torment us?
30 And there was, at a distance from them, a herd of many swine feeding.
31 And the demons besought him saying: If thou dost cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.
32 And he said to them: Go. And they came out, and went away into the swine; and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep into the sea, and died in the waters.
33 But those who fed them fled, and going away into the city told all things, and what had happened to those possessed with the demons.
34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and seeing him they besought that he would depart from their borders;
