[Mark 5]

     {Mar 5:1-21 & Mat 8:28-34 & Luk 8:26-40 Gergesa.}

     5:1 And they came to the area of the sea beyond-that, into the region of the Gadarenes. 5:2 And having come out of the ship, immediately a man encountered him out of the tombs in him was an unclean spirit, 5:3 who had his dwelling in the tombs, and no one was able to bind him, not even with chains. 5:4 Because of the same, he had been bound often with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn to shreds by him and the shackles had been crushed, and no one was strong-enough to tame him. 5:5 And he was always crying out and cutting himself with stones, night and day, in the mountains and in the tombs.

     5:6 Now when* he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped him; 5:7 and crying out with a loud voice, he said, What is this thing with me and with you, Jesus, Son of the Highest God? I am imploring you by God, doĎ not torment me.

     5:8 For* he said to him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit.5:9 And he asked him, What is your name?

     And he answered, saying, My name is Legion, because we are many. 5:10 And he was pleading with him much in order that he might not send them away outside the region. 5:11 Now a great herd of swine was feeding there before the mountain. 5:12 And all the demons pleaded with him, saying, Send us into the swine, in order that we may enter into them. 5:13 And Jesus immediately permitted them. And the unclean spirits came out, and entered into the swine and the herd rushed down the cliff into the sea. Now they were approximately two thousand, and they were choking in the sea.

     5:14 Now those feeding the swine fled and reported it to the city and to the rural-area. And they came out to see what it was that has happened. 5:15 And they come to Jesus and were viewing he who was demon-possessed and had the legion, sitting and he had his garments on and wassensible, and they were afraid. 5:16 But those who saw it described to them how it happened to he who was demon-possessed and concerning the swine. 5:17 And they began to plead with him to go away from their borders.

     5:18 And when* he stepped into the ship, he who had been demon-possessed was pleading with him in order that he might be with him. 5:19 But Jesus did not allow him, but says to him, Go to your house, to your own and report to them how-much the Lord has done for you and how he showed-mercy on you.5:20 And he traveled and began to preach in Decapolis how-much Jesus had done for him and all were marveling.

     5:21 And when* Jesus had ferried over again in the ship to the area beyond-that, a large crowd was gathered to him, and he was beside the sea.

     {Mar 5:22-43 & Mat 9:18-26 & Luk 8:41-56 Capernaum.}

     5:22 And behold one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, comes and seeing him, he falls at his feet; 5:23 and was pleading with him much, saying, My young-daughter is holding on her last moments. I pray that* you come and might lay your hands on her, *that she may be cured and will live. 5:24 And he went with him.

     And a large crowd was following him and they were pressing against him. 5:25 And a certain woman, being in her a flowing of blood for twelve years, 5:26 and had suffered many things under many physicians and had spent all that she had and was profited nothing, but rather having come to be worse. 5:27 Having heard concerning Jesus, she came in the crowd behind and touched his garment. 5:28 For* she was saying, Even if I touch but his garments, I will be cured. 5:29 And immediately the spring of her blood was dried up, and she knew that she had been healed from the disorder in her body. 5:30 And immediately Jesus, fully knowing in himself that the power had gone forth from him and having turned around in the crowd, said, Who touched my garments?

     5:31 And his disciples were saying to him, You see the crowd pressing against you and you say, Who touched me? 5:32 And he was looking around to see her who had done this thing. 5:33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what has happened upon her, came and fell down before him and spoke all the truth to him.

     5:34 And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace and be healthy from your disorder.

     5:35 While* he is still speaking, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, Your daughter is dead. Why are you still bothering the Teacher?

     5:36 But Jesus immediately having heard the word being spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not fear, only believe.5:37 And he allowed no one to follow him, except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 5:38 And he comes to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and he views an uproar, many weeping and wailing. 5:39 And having entered in, he says to them, Why are youĎ in an uproar and weeping? The child is not dead, but is sleeping.5:40And they were laughing at him. But having cast them all out, he takes the father of the child and her mother and those with him and he traveled into where the child was reclining. 5:41 And taking-hold of the child by the hand, he says to her, Talitha kumi; which is, after being translated, Girl, I say to you, Arise. 5:42 And immediately the girl rose* up and was walking; for*she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 5:43 And he ordered them much in order that no one should know this and he said that something should be given to her to eat.
