Luke 8 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)

· kai It happened ginomai that soon afterward en Jesus autos began to travel diodeuō around from kata one town polis and kai village kōmē to another, proclaiming kēryssō and kai bringing euangelizō the good news of the ho kingdom basileia of ho God theos. · kai The ho twelve dōdeka disciples were with syn him autos, as kai well as certain tis women gynē who hos had been eimi healed therapeuō from apo evil ponēros spirits pneuma and kai diseases astheneia ( Mary Maria who ho is called kaleō Magdalene Magdalēnē, from apo whom hos seven hepta demons daimonion had gone out exerchomai, and kai Joanna Iōanna, wife gynē of Chuza, Herod’ s hērōdēs steward epitropē, and kai Susanna Sousanna) and kai many polys other heteros women who hostis cared diakoneō for their autos needs out ek of · ho their own autos resources hyparchō.

As a large polys crowd ochlos was gathering syneimi · de and kai people ho were coming epiporeuomai to pros Jesus autos from kata one town polis after another, he spoke legō using dia a parable parabolē. “A sower speirō went exerchomai out · ho to ho sow speirō · ho his autos seed sporos. And kai as en · ho he autos sowed speirō, some hos fell piptō along para the ho path hodos and kai was trampled katapateō underfoot , and kai the ho birds peteinon of ho heaven ouranos devoured katesthiō it autos. · kai Other heteros seed fell katapiptō on epi · ho rock petra, and kai when it came phyō up , it withered xērainō away , because dia · ho it had echō no moisture ikmas. · kai Other heteros seed fell piptō in en the middle mesos of ho thorns akantha, and kai when the ho thorns akantha came symphyō up with it, they choked apopnigō it autos. · kai Other heteros seed fell piptō into eis · ho good agathos soil , · ho and kai when it came phyō up , it produced poieō fruit karpos a hundredfold hekatontaplasiōn.” As he was saying legō these houtos things he began to call phōneō out , “ Let the ho one who has echō ears ous to hear akouō, hear akouō.”

Now de his autos disciples mathētēs were questioning eperōtaō him autos · ho as to what tis this houtos parable parabolē meant eimi. · ho 10 He ho · de said legō, “ To you hymeis it has been given didōmi to know ginōskō the ho secrets mystērion of the ho kingdom basileia of ho God theos, but de to the ho rest loipos I speak in en parables parabolē, so hina that seeing blepō they may not see blepō, and kai hearing akouō they may not understand syniēmi.

11  Now de this houtos is eimi what the ho parable parabolē means: The ho seed sporos is eimi the ho word logos of ho God theos. 12 Those ho · de along para the ho path hodos are eimi the ho ones who hear akouō then eita the ho devil diabolos comes erchomai and kai takes airō away the ho word logos from apo · ho their autos heart kardia, so hina that they may not believe pisteuō and be saved sōzō. 13 Those ho · de that fall on epi · ho rock petra are the ones who hos, when hotan they hear akouō the ho word logos, receive dechomai it with meta joy chara; but kai they houtos have echō no ou root rhiza they hos believe pisteuō for pros a while kairos but kai in en a time kairos of testing peirasmos they fall aphistēmi away . 14 As for de what ho fell piptō among eis the ho thorns akantha these houtos are eimi the ho ones who hear akouō, but kai as they go on their way poreuō they are choked sympnigō by hypo the cares merimna and kai riches ploutos and kai pleasures hēdonē of ho life bios, and kai they do not ou bring telesphoreō fruit to maturity . 15 But as for de that ho in en the ho good kalos soil these houtos are eimi the ones who hostis, having heard akouō with en an honest kalos and kai good agathos heart kardia, hold firmly onto katechō the ho word logos and kai bear karpophoreō fruit through en patient hypomonē endurance .

16  No oudeis one · de after lighting haptō a lamp lychnos covers kalyptō it autos with a container skeuos or ē puts tithēmi it under hypokatō a bed klinē, but alla places tithēmi it on epi a lampstand lychnia, so hina that those ho who come eisporeuomai in may see blepō the ho light phōs. 17 For gar nothing ou is eimi hidden kryptos that hos will ginomai not ou be ginomai disclosed phaneros, nor oude secret apokryphos that hos will not ou mē be ginōskō known and kai come erchomai to eis light phaneros.

18  Take blepō care , then oun, how pōs you hear akouō! For gar whoever hos an has echō—more will be given didōmi to him autos; and kai whoever hos does not have echō even kai what hos he seems dokeō to have echō will be taken airō away from apo him autos.”

19 The ho mother mētēr of Jesus and kai his autos brothers adelphos came paraginomai · de to pros him autos, · ho but kai they were not ou able dynamai to get syntynchanō near him autos because dia of the ho crowd ochlos. 20 It was reported apangellō · de to him autos, · ho Your sy mother mētēr and kai · ho your sy brothers adelphos are standing histēmi outside exō, wanting thelō to see you sy.” 21 In response apokrinomai he ho · de said legō to pros them autos, “ Those houtos who ho hear akouō and kai do poieō the ho word logos of ho God theos are eimi my egō mother mētēr and kai my egō brothers adelphos.”

22 It happened ginomai · de in en one heis of those ho days hēmera · kai that he autos and kai his autos disciples mathētēs got embainō into eis a boat ploion, · ho and kai he said legō to pros them autos, “ Let us go dierchomai across to eis the ho other peran side of the ho lake limnē.” So kai they put out anagō from shore . 23 As they autos were sailing pleō along , · de he fell asleep aphypnoō, and kai a windstorm lailaps swept katabainō down on eis the ho lake limnē and kai they were being swamped symplēroō and kai were in danger kindyneuō. 24 They went proserchomai · de to Jesus and woke diegeirō him autos up , saying legō, “ Master epistatēs, Master epistatēs, we are about to perish apollymi!” Having been awakened diegeirō he ho · de rebuked epitimaō the ho wind anemos and kai the ho raging klydōn of the ho water hydōr, and kai they stopped pauō, and kai there was ginomai a calm galēnē. 25 He said legō · de to them autos, “ Where pou is · ho your hymeis faith pistis?” They were afraid phobeomai · de and amazed thaumazō, saying legō to pros one allēlōn another , “ Who tis, then ara, is eimi this houtos that hoti he commands epitassō even kai the ho winds anemos and kai the ho water hydōr and kai they obey hypakouō him autos?”

26 Then kai they came katapleō to land in eis the ho region chōra of the ho Gerasenes Gerasēnos, which hostis is eimi across antipera the lake from ho Galilee Galilaia. 27 When he autos stepped exerchomai out · de on epi the ho land , a tis man anēr from ek the ho town polis met hypantaō him, who was possessed echō by demons daimonion, and kai for a long hikanos time chronos had not ou worn endyō clothes himation or kai had menō not ou lived menō in en a house oikia but alla among en the ho tombs mnēma. 28 When he saw · de · ho Jesus Iēsous, he cried anakrazō out and fell prospiptō prostate before him autos and kai in a loud megas voice phōnē said legō, “ What tis have I egō · kai to do with you sy, Jesus Iēsous, Son hyios of the ho Most High hypsistos God theos? · ho I beg deomai you sy, do basanizō not torment basanizō me egō!?” 29 For gar Jesus had commanded parangellō the ho unclean akathartos spirit pneuma · ho to come exerchomai out of apo the ho man anthrōpos; for gar many polys times chronos it had seized synarpazō him autos and kai he was kept desmeuō under guard and bound phylassō with chains halysis and kai shackles pedē, yet kai he would break his ho bonds desmos and be driven elaunō by hypo the ho demon daimonion into eis the ho desert erēmos. 30 Jesus Iēsous asked eperōtaō · de him autos, · ho What tis is eimi your sy name onoma?” And de he ho said legō, “ Legion legiōn.” ( For hoti many polys demons daimonion had entered eiserchomai into eis him autos.) 31 And kai they begged parakaleō him autos not to hina order epitassō them autos to go away aperchomai into eis the ho abyss abyssos.

32 A large hikanos herd agelē of pigs choiros was eimi · de grazing boskō there ekei on en the ho hillside oros; and kai the demons begged parakaleō Jesus autos to hina permit epitrepō them autos to go eiserchomai into eis them ekeinos, and kai he gave epitrepō them autos permission . 33 The ho demons daimonion came exerchomai out · de of apo the ho man anthrōpos and went eiserchomai into eis the ho pigs choiros, and kai the ho herd agelē rushed hormaō down kata the ho steep krēmnos bank into eis the ho lake limnē and kai drowned apopnigō.

34 When the ho herdsmen boskō saw · de what ho had happened ginomai, they fled pheugō and kai reported apangellō it in eis the ho town polis and kai in eis the ho countryside agros. 35 Then de people went exerchomai out to see what ho happened ginomai, and kai they came erchomai to pros · ho Jesus Iēsous and kai found heuriskō the ho man anthrōpos from apo whom hos the ho demons daimonion had come out exerchomai, sitting kathēmai at para the ho feet pous of ho Jesus Iēsous, dressed himatizō and kai in his right mind sōphroneō; and kai they were afraid phobeomai. 36 Those ho who had seen it told apangellō · de them autos how pōs the ho demon-possessed man daimonizomai had been healed sōzō. 37 Then kai all hapas the ho people plēthos of the ho surrounding region perichōros of the ho Gerasenes Gerasēnos asked erōtaō Jesus autos to go aperchomai away from apo them autos, because hoti they were seized with synechō a great megas fear phobos.

Luke 8 New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Sower

After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.

While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.”

When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”

His disciples asked him what this parable meant. 10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that,

“‘though seeing, they may not see;
    though hearing, they may not understand.’[a]

11 “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. 13 Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. 14 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.

A Lamp on a Stand

16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. 18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”

Jesus’ Mother and Brothers

19 Now Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. 20 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.”

21 He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.”

Jesus Calms the Storm

22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.

24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.

In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”

Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man

26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes,[b] which is across the lake from Galilee. 27 When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town. For a long time this man had not worn clothes or lived in a house, but had lived in the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet, shouting at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torture me!” 29 For Jesus had commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places.

30 Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”

“Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. 31 And they begged Jesus repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss.

32 A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into the pigs, and he gave them permission. 33 When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.

34 When those tending the pigs saw what had happened, they ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, 35 and the people went out to see what had happened. When they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus’ feet, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid. 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured. 37 Then all the people of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them, because they were overcome with fear. So he got into the boat and left.

38 The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 “Return home and tell how much God has done for you.” So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.

Jesus Raises a Dead Girl and Heals a Sick Woman

40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.

As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years,[c] but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.”

46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”

47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”

50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”

51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.”

53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
