New International Version
Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy(A)
12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy.[a](B) When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
15 Yet the news about him spread all the more,(E) so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.
- Luke 5:12 The Greek word traditionally translated leprosy was used for various diseases affecting the skin.
