A Demon-Possessed Man Healed(A)

Then (B)they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the [a]Gadarenes. And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an (C)unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind [b]him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him.

A Demon-Possessed Man Healed(A)

26 (B)Then they sailed to the country of the [a]Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee. 27 And when He stepped out on the land, there met Him a certain man from the city who had demons [b]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 (C)cried out, fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, (D)“What have I to do with (E)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 (F)into the abyss.

32 Now a herd of many (G)swine was feeding there on the mountain. So they begged Him that He would permit them to enter them. And He permitted them. 33 Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned.
