Matthew 8 ©

1 Christ cleanses a leper. 5 Heals the servant of a centurion. 14 The mother-in-law of Peter. 16 And still many others. 20 Declares to a scribe, who wanted to follow Him, His poverty. 21 And commands another to follow Him without delay. 23 Calms the tempest on the sea. 28 Casts devils out of two persons who were possessed, and allowed them to enter into the herd of swine.

¶And whend Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,


And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.


And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.


The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speake the word only, and my servant shall be healed.


For I am a man 8under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.


When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found 9so great faith, no, not in Israel.


Andf I say unto you, That many shall come 10from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.


Butg the 11children of the kingdom shall be cast out into 12outer darkness: thereh shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by 19Esaias the prophet, saying, Himselfj took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.


¶Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart 20unto the other side.


Andk a certain scribe came, and said unto him, 21Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.


And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the 22air have 23nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.


And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

¶Andm when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.


And, behold, there 25arose a great 26tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.


And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.


And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Thenn he arose, and 27rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great 28calm.


But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

And there was a good way off from them an herd of many 32swine feeding.


So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.


And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
