18 Now when Jesus saw a crowd around Him, He gave orders to depart to the other side of the sea.19 Then a scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.”20 Jesus *said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the [a]air have[b]nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”21 Another of the disciples said to Him, “Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.”22 But Jesus *said to him, “Follow Me, and allow the dead to bury their own dead.”
23 When He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him.24 And behold, there arose [c]a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep.25 And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing!”26 He *said to them, “Why are you [d]afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and [e]it became perfectly calm.27 The men were amazed, and said, “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”
Jesus Casts Out Demons
28 When He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two men who were demon-possessed met Him as they were coming out of the tombs. They were so extremely violent that no one could pass by that way.29 And they cried out, saying, “[f]What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before [g]the time?”30 Now there was a herd of many swine feeding at a distance from them.31 The demons began to entreat Him, saying, “If You are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.”32 And He said to them, “Go!” And they came out and went into the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and perished in the waters.33 The herdsmen ran away, and went to the city and reported everything, [h]including what had happened to the demoniacs.34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they implored Him to leave their region.
