that house ; and it fell : and great was the fall of it,
And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
CHAPTER XXVII. Jesus cleanses the Leper in his way to Capernaum. When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean : Aud immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded for a testimony unto them.
CHAPTER XXVIII. In Capernaum Jesus cures a Centurion's son,
and many diseases, and casts out Devils. And when 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 speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
For I am a man under 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 lieard it, he marvelled, and said to thein that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel,
And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven :
But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness : there 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 self-same hour.
CHAPTER XXIX. Jesus cures a Demoniac, and heals Peter's mo
ther-in-law in Capernaum; then makes a se
cond tour through Galilee. And straightway on the sabbath-day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
And in the synagogue there was a man which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,
Saying, Let us alone ; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth ? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.
And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.
And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this?
For with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever; and anon they tell him of her,
And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose, and ministered unto them.
Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him ;
And all the city was gathered together at the door.
And he laid his hands on every one of them, ard healed them,
And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he, rebuking them, suffered them not to speak : for they knew that he was Christ.
And he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed,
And the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.
And Simon and they that were with him followed after hiin.
And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek after thee,
And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also : for. therefore came I forth.
And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God, to other cities also; for therefore am I sent.
CHAPTER XXX. Fishes are caught by miracle The third tour
through Galilee, in which another Leper is
cured. And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of
Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes : and their net brake.
