Matthew 8:5-13 American Standard Version (ASV)

And when he was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my [a]servant lieth in the house sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And he saith unto him, I will come and heal him. And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not [b]worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say [c]the word, and my [d]servant shall be healed. For I also am a man [e]under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my [f]servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 And when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, [g]I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall [h]sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven: 12 but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast forth into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And the [i]servant was healed in that hour.
