Mark 5

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

2 And when he had come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains;

4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked apart by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

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

6 But when he saw YHWH afar off, he ran and worshipped Him,

7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, “What have I to do with You, YHWH, You B47Humanity of Most High God (Elyon El)? I adjure You by God (Elohim), that You torment me not.”

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

9 And He asked him, “What is your 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 near 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 immediately YHWH gave them permission. 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 YHWH, 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 beseech Him to depart out of their coasts.

18 And when He had come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil besought Him that he might be with Him.

19 Howbeit YHWH permitted him not, but saith unto him, “Go home to your friends, and tell them how great things יהוה hath done for you, and hath had compassion on you.”

20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things YHWH had done for him; and all men did marvel.

21 And when YHWH had passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto Him; and He was near unto the sea.

22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Yair by name; and when he saw Him, he fell at His feet,

23 And besought Him greatly, saying, “My little daughter lieth at the point of death; I pray You, come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.”

24 And YHWH went with him; and much people followed Him, and thronged Him.

25 And a certain woman, who had an issue of blood twelve years,

26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

27 When she had heard of YHWH, came in the press behind, and touched His garment.

28 For she said, “If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole.”

29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

30 And YHWH, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned Him about in the crowd, and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

31 And His disciples said unto Him, “You seest the multitude thronging You, and sayest You, ‘Who touched Me?’”

32 And He looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth.

34 And He said unto her, “Daughter, your faith hath made you whole; go in peace, and be whole of your plague.”

35 While He yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, “Your daughter is dead; why troublest you the Teacher (Rabbi) any further?”

36 As soon as YHWH heard the word that was spoken, He saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, “Be not afraid, only believe.”

37 And He permitted no man to follow Him, except Peter (Kefa), and James (Yaaqov), and John (Yochanan) the brother of James (Yaaqov).

38 And He cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

39 And when He had come in, He saith unto them, “Why make you this commotion, and weep? The damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.”

40 And they laughed Him to scorn. But when He had put them all out, He taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with Him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

41 And He took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, “Talita, qumi!” which is, being interpreted, “Damsel, I say unto you, arise!”

42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

43 And He warned them sternly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
