Mark 5:1-20 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him from out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

who had his dwelling among the tombs. And no man could bind him, no, not even with chains,

because he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been rent asunder by him and the fetters broken in pieces; neither could any man tame him.

And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.

But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshiped Him,

and cried with a loud voice, and said, “What have I to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of the Most High God? I adjure Thee by God that Thou torment me not!”

For He had said unto him, “Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.”

And Jesus asked him, “What is thy name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion, for we are many.”

10 And he besought Him much that He would not send them away out of the country.

11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.

12 And all the devils besought Him, saying, “Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.”

13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine; and the herd ran violently down a steep place and into the sea (they were about two thousand), and were choked in the sea.

14 And those who fed the swine fled, and told it in the city and in the country. And the people went out to see what it was that had been done.

15 And they came to Jesus, and saw him that had been possessed by the devil and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.

16 And those who saw it told the people what had befallen him that was possessed by the devil, and also concerning the swine.

17 And they began to pray Him to depart from their borders.

18 And when He had gotten into the boat, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed Him that he might be with Him.

19 But Jesus suffered him not, and said unto him, “Go home to thy friends, and tell them what great things the Lord hath done for thee, and how He hath had compassion on thee.”

20 And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him. And all men marveled.
