1When Jesus went down from the hillside, large crowds followed him.
2After he left the crowds, a man who had the skin disease called leprosy unexpectedly came and knelt before him. He said to Jesus, “Lord/Sir, please heal me, because I know you are able to heal me if you are willing to.”
3Then Jesus, disregarding the religious law that forbade people to come close to lepers, stretched out his hand and touched the man. He said to him, “I am willing to heal you, and I heal you now!” Immediately the man was healed from his leprosy {he was no longer a leper}.
4Then Jesus said to him, “Go and show yourself to a nearby priest so that he can examine you and verify that you no longer have leprosy. Then, after he tells the local people, they will know that you no longer have leprosy, and you will be able to associate with them again. Make sure that now you do not report about my healing you to anyone other than the priest. Then go to the Temple in Jerusalem and give the priest the offering that Moses commanded that people who have been healed from leprosy should offer as a sacrifice to God.”
5When Jesus went to Capernaum city, a Roman officer who commanded one hundred soldiers came to him. He begged Jesus to help him.
6He said to him, “Sir, my servant is lying in bed at home and is paralyzed, and he has severe pain.”
7Jesus said to him, “I will go to your house and heal him.”
8But the officer said to him, “Lord/Sir, do not bother to go. I am a non-Jew, so I am not worthy for you, a Jew, to come into my house MTY and associate with me. Instead, just comman that my servant be healed, and he will be healed.
9I believe this because, as for me, I am a man under the authority of others, and I also have soldiers under my authority. When I say to one of them ‘Go!’ he goes. When I say to another ‘Come!’ he comes. When I say to my slave, ‘Do this!’ he does it. And I believe that you speak with a similar kind of authority.”
10When Jesus heard this, he marveled. He said to the crowd that was walking with him, “Listen to this: I have never before found anyone who has as firm a faith in me as this non-Jewish man has. Not even in Israel, where I would expect people to believe in me, have I found anyone who has the kind of faith in me that he has!
11I tell you truly that many other non-Jewish people who will believe in me like this Roman officer will come from distant countries, including those far to the east and far to the west SYN, and they will sit down to eat with MTY Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in heaven, where God rules.
12But the Jews IDM who should have allowed God to rule over them will be sent to hell, where there is total darkness. And as a result, they will weep because of their suffering and will grind their teeth because they will have severe pain MTY.”
13Then Jesus said to the officer, “Go home. What you believed would happen, that I would heal your servant from a distance, will happen.” Then the officer went home and found out that his servant became well at the exact time that Jesus told him that he would heal him.
14When Jesus and some of his disciples went to the home of Peter, Jesus saw Peter's mother-in-law. She was lying on a bed because she had a fever.
15He touched her hand, and as a result, immediately she no longer had a fever PRS. Then she got up and served them some food.
16That evening when ◄ the Sabbath/the Jewish rest day► ended and restrictions about traveling ended, many people who were controlled by demons {whom demons controlled} and people who were sick MTY were brought to Jesus. He caused the demons to leave just by speaking to them, and he healed all the people who were sick.
17By doing this he fulfilled the words that had been said by the prophet Isaiah {that the prophet Isaiah had said} about the Messiah: “He healed people who had sicknesses and he cured them of their diseases.” DOU
18Jesus saw the crowd around him, but he needed to rest. So he told his disciples to take him by boat to the other side of the lake.

19As they were walking toward the boat, a man who taught the Jewish laws came to him and said, “Teacher, I will go with you wherever you go.”
20In order that the man might know what he could expect if he went with him, Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes in the ground in which to live, and birds have nests, but even though I am the one who came from heaven, I do not have a home where I can sleep MTY.”
21Another man who was one of Jesus' disciples said to him, “Sir/Lord, permit me first to go home. After my father dies I will bury him, and then I will come with you.”
22But Jesus said to him, “Come with me now. God considers that people who do not have eternal life are dead MET. Let those people do the work of burying people who die.”
23Then Jesus got into the boat. The disciples also got in, and they started sailing close to the shoreline around Lake Galilee.
24Suddenly strong winds blew on the lake, and very high waves were splashing into the boat and filling it. But Jesus was sleeping.
25They went and woke him up, and said to him, “Sir/Lord, rescue us! We are about to drown!”
26He said to them, “◄You should not be terrified!/Why are you terrified?► RHQ I am disappointed that in spite of all you have seen me do, ◄you do not believe very much that I can rescue you./do you not believe that I can rescue you?► RHQ” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and told the waves to calm down. And the wind stopped blowing and the lake became calm.
27As a result, they were amazed, and they said to one another, “This man is certainly an extraordinary person RHQ! All things are under his control! Even the winds and the waves obey him PRS!”
28When they came to the east side of the lake, they arrived in the region where the Gadarenes lived. Jesus got out of the boat and began walking on the road. Then two men who were controlled by demons {whom demons controlled} came out of the burial caves where they were living. Because they were extremely violent and attacked people, no one dared to travel on the road near where they were living.
29Suddenly they shouted to Jesus, “You are the Son of God! Because you have nothing in common with us IDM, RHQ, leave us alone Have you come here RHQ to torture us before the time MTY God has appointed to punish us?”
30There was a large herd of pigs not far away, digging for food with their noses.
31So the demons begged Jesus, saying, “You are going to cast us out of the men, so send us into the herd of pigs!”
32Jesus said to them, “ If that is what you want, go!” So the demons left the men and entered the pigs. Suddenly the whole herd of pigs rushed down the steep bank into the lake and drowned.
33The men who were tending the pigs became afraid and ran into the town and reported everything that had happened, including what had happened to the two men who had been controlled by demons {whom demons had controlled}.
34Then it seemed as if all the people HYP who lived in that town MTY went to meet Jesus. When they saw him and the two men who had been controlled by the demons, they begged Jesus to leave their region because they thought that he would destroy more things than just the pigs (OR, because they realized he must be very powerful).
