Mark 1:40-45 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy
40 A man with leprosy[a] came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.”
41 Jesus was indignant.[b] He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.
43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning: 44 “See that you don’t tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.” 45 Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.

Cleansing a Leper
40 Now[a] a leper[b] came to him and fell to his knees, asking for help. “If[c] you are willing, you can make me clean,” he said. 41 Moved with indignation,[d] Jesus[e] stretched out his hand and touched[f] him, saying, “I am willing. Be clean!” 42 The leprosy left him at once, and he was clean. 43 Immediately Jesus[g] sent the man[h] away with a very strong warning. 44 He told him,[i] “See that you do not say anything to anyone,[j] but go, show yourself to a priest, and bring the offering that Moses commanded[k] for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.”[l] 45 But as the man[m] went out he began to announce it publicly and spread the story widely, so that Jesus[n] was no longer able to enter any town openly but stayed outside in remote places. Still[o] they kept coming[p] to him from everywhere.
