27 And when He stepped out on the land, there met Him a certain man from the city who had demons [a]for a long time. And he wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he (A)cried out, fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, (B)“What have I to do with (C)You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me!” 29 For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had often seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness.

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

And he said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him. 31 And they begged Him that He would not command them to go out (D)into the abyss.
