Mark 5:1-20 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And they came over the sea into the country of Gadarenes.

And after that he was gone out of the boat, at once [anon] a man in an unclean spirit ran out of the burials to him.

Which man had an house in burials[a], and neither with chains now might any man bind him.

For oft times [For oft] he was bound in stocks and chains, and he had broken the chains, and had broken the stocks to small gobbets, and no man might make him tame[b].

And evermore [And ever], night and day, in burials and in hills, he was crying and beating himself with stones.

And he saw Jesus afar, and ran, and worshipped him.

And he cried with great voice, and said, What to me and to thee, thou Jesus, the Son of the highest God? I conjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

And Jesus said to him, Thou unclean spirit, go out from the man.

And Jesus asked him, What is thy name? And he saith to him, A legion is my name; for we be many.

10 And he prayed Jesus much, that he should not put them out of the country. [And he prayed him much, that he should not cast him out of the country.]

11 And there was there about the hill a great flock of swine pasturing [a great drove of hogs pasturing].

12 And the spirits prayed Jesus, and said [And the spirits prayed him, saying], Send us into the swine, that we enter into them.

13 And at once [And anon] Jesus granted to them. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine, and with a great rush the flock was cast down into the sea, a two thousand, and they were drowned in the sea[c].

14 And they that kept them, fled [Soothly they that fed them, fled], and told into the city, and into the fields; and they went out, to see what was done.

15 And they came to Jesus, and saw him that had been travailed of the fiend [And they came to Jesus, and they see him that was travailed of the fiend], sitting clothed, and of whole mind; and they dreaded.

16 And they that saw, how it was done to him that had a fiend, and of the swine, told to them. [And they told to them, that saw, how it was done to him that had a fiend, and of the swine.]

17 And they began to pray him, that he should go away from their coasts.[d]

18 And when he went up into a boat, he that was travailed of the devil, began to pray him, that he should be with him.

19 But Jesus received him not, but said to him [but saith to him], Go thou into thine house to thine, and tell to them, how great things the Lord hath done to thee, and had mercy of thee.

20 And he went forth, and began to preach in Decapolis, how great things Jesus had done to him; and all men wondered.

Mark 5:1-20 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He delivers the possessed man from the unclean spirits, and the woman from the flow of blood, and raises the synagogue leader’s daughter.

And they went over to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he got out of the boat, there met him out of the graves a man possessed by an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the graves. And no man could bind him, no, not with chains. For he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he pulled the chains apart and broke the shackles in pieces. Neither could anyone quiet him. And always, both night and day, he wailed in the mountains and in the graves, and beat himself with stones.

When he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, and cried out with a loud voice and said, What have I to do with you, Jesus Son of the most high God? I call on you in the name of God not to torment me. For Jesus had said to him, Come out of the man, you foul spirit! And Jesus asked him, What is your name? He answered, saying, My name is Legion, for we are many. 10 And he pressed Jesus urgently not to send them away out of the region.

11 And there was there, near to the mountains, a great herd of swine feeding. 12 All the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the herd of swine, so that we may enter into them. 13 And at once Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine. And the herd started, and ran headlong into the sea. There were about 2,000 swine, and they were drowned in the sea.

14 And the swineherds fled and told this in the town and in the country. And the people came out to see what had happened, 15 and came to Jesus. They saw the man who had been vexed with the fiend and had the legion sitting both clothed and in his right mind, and were afraid. 16 And those who had seen it told them what had happened to the man possessed with the devil, and also about the swine. 17 And they began to urge Jesus to depart from their shores.

18 And when he got into the boat, the man who had been possessed with the devil asked him if he could be with him. 19 However Jesus would not allow him, but said to him, Go home to your own house and to your friends, and show them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how he had compassion on you.

20 And he departed and began to tell everywhere in the Ten Cities what great things Jesus had done for him. And all the people marvelled.

Mark 5:1-20 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

2 One possessed is healed. 7 The devil acknowledgeth Christ. 9 A Legion of devils. 13 entered into swine. 22 Jairus’s daughter. 25 A woman is healed of a bloody issue. 26 Physicians. 34 Faith. 39 Sleep.

And [a]they came over to the other side of the sea into the country of the [b]Gadarenes.

And when he was come out of the ship, there met him incontinently out of the graves, a man [c]which had an unclean spirit:

Who had his abiding among the graves, and no man could bind him, no not with chains:

Because that when he was often bound with fetters and chains, he plucked the chains asunder, and brake the fetters in pieces, neither could any man tame him.

And always both night and day he cried in the mountains, and in the graves, and struck himself with stones.

And when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran, and worshipped him,

And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus the Son of the most High God? I [d]will that thou swear to me by God, that thou torment me not.

(For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.)

And he asked him, What is thy name? and he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

10 And he [e]prayed him instantly, that he would not send them away out of the country.

11 Now there was there in the [f]mountains a great heard of swine, feeding.

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

13 And incontinently Jesus gave them leave. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine, and the herd ran headlong from the high bank into the [g]sea, (and there were about two thousand swine) and they were choked up in the sea.

14 And the swineherds fled, and told it in the city, and in the country, and they came out to see what it was that was done.

15 And they came to Jesus, and saw him that had been possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sit both clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

16 And they that saw it, told them, what was done to him that was possessed with the devil, and concerning the swine.

17 Then they began to pray him, that he would depart from their coasts.

18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil, prayed him that he might be with him.

19 Howbeit, Jesus would not suffer him, but said unto him, Go thy way home to thy friends, and show them what great things the Lord hath done unto thee, and how he hath had compassion on thee.

20 So he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis, what great things Jesus had done unto him: and all men did marvel.

Mark 5:1-20 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him 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 with chains: because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked 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, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped 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 said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he 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 into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. 17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. 18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
