when Jesus had come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother lying down, sick with a fever.
15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose and ministered to them.
16 When the evening had come, they brought many who were possessed with devils to him; and he cast out the spirits with his word,1 and healed all who were sick.
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, "He Himself took our infirmities, and bore our sicknesses."
18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes crowding around him, he gave the command to depart to the other side of the sea.
19 Then a certain scribe came and said to him, "Master, I will follow you wherever you go."
20 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head."
21 And another of his disciples said to him, "Lord, allow me to first go and bury my father."
22 But Jesus said to him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead."
23 Now when he entered the ship, his disciples followed him.
24 And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, so much that the ship was covered with the waves; but he was asleep.
25 So his disciples came to him and awoke him, saying, "Lord, save us, we are perishing."
26 And he said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?" Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
27 And the men marveled, saying, "What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!"
28 Now when he had come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, two men met him who were possessed with demons, coming out of the tombs and being so threatening that no man would pass by their way.
29 And behold, they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with you, Jesus, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?"
30 Now a herd of many swine was feeding a good distance away from them.
31 So the demons begged him, saying, "If you cast us out, allow us to go into that herd of swine."
32 And he said to them, "Go." And when they went out, they entered into the herd of swine; and behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea and drowned in the water.
33 Then those who had kept the swine, fled and went into the city, telling everything, including what had befallen the men possessed with the demons.
34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw him, they implored him to leave their region.
