Christ delivering the possessed of the legion of devils,
Mark 5:1 And they came ouer to the other syde of the sea, into the countrey of the Gadarenites. Mark 5:2 And when he was come out of the shippe, immediatly there met hym from among the tombes, a man [possessed] of an vncleane spirite: Mark 5:3 Which had his abidyng among the tombes: And no man coulde bynde him, no not with cheynes, Mark 5:4 Because, that when he was often bounde with fetters and cheynes, he plucked the cheynes a sunder, and brake the fetters in peeces: Neither coulde any man tame hym. Mark 5:5 And alwayes, nyght and day, he was in the mountaynes, and in the tombes, crying, and beatyng hym selfe with stones. Mark 5:6 But when he had spied Iesus a farre of, he ranne, and worshypped hym, Mark 5:7 And cried with a loude voyce, & sayde: what haue I to do with thee Iesus thou sonne of the most hyest God? I require thee in the name of God, that thou torment me not. Mark 5:8 (For he sayde vnto hym: come out of the man thou foule spirite.) Mark 5:9 And he asked hym, what is thy name? And he aunswered and sayd vnto hym: my name is legion, for we are many. Mark 5:10 And he prayed hym instantly, that he woulde not sende them away, out of the countrey. Mark 5:11 But there was there, nye vnto the mountaynes, a great hearde of swyne feedyng. Mark 5:12 And all the deuyls besought hym, saying: sende vs into the swyne, that we may enter into them.
they enter into the swine.
Mark 5:13 And anone Iesus gaue them leaue. And the vncleane spirites went out, and entred into the swyne: And the hearde ran headlong into the sea, (they were about two thousande,) & were drowned in the sea. Mark 5:14 And the swyneheardes fled, and tolde it in the citie, and in the countrey. And they went out for to see what was done: Mark 5:15 And came to Iesus, and sawe hym that was vexed with the fiende, and had the legion, syt, both clothed, and in his right mynde: & they were afraide. Mark 5:16 And they that sawe it, tolde them, howe it came to passe to hym that was possessed with the deuyll: and also of the swyne. Mark 5:17 And they beganne to pray hym, that he woulde depart out of their coastes. Mark 5:18 And when he was come into the shippe, he that had [ben possessed] with the deuyll, prayed hym, that he myght be with hym. Mark 5:19 Howebeit, Iesus woulde not suffer hym, but sayde vnto hym: go home to thy frendes, and shewe them howe great thynges the Lorde hath done for thee, and howe he had compassion on thee. Mark 5:20 And he departed, and beganne to publyshe in the ten cities, howe great thynges Iesus had done for hym: and all men dyd maruayle. Mark 5:21 And when Iesus was come ouer agayne by shippe, vnto the other syde, much people gathered vnto hym, and he was nye vnto the sea. Mark 5:22 And beholde, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, whose name was Iairus: and when he sawe hym, he fell downe at his feete, Mark 5:23 And besought hym greatly, saying: my young daughter lieth at poynt of death, [I pray thee] come and lay thy hande on her, that she may be safe, and lyue. Mark 5:24 And he went with hym, and much people folowed him, and thronged him.
He healeth the woman of the bloody issue,
Mark 5:25 And there was a certayne woman, which had ben diseased of an issue of blood twelue yeres, Mark 5:26 And had suffred many thynges, of many phisitions, and had spent all that she had, and felt none amendemet at all, but rather the worse. Mark 5:27 When she had hearde of Iesus, she came in the prease behynde hym, and touched his garment. Mark 5:28 For she sayde: yf I may but touche his clothes, I shalbe whole. Mark 5:29 And strayghtway the fountayne of her blood was dryed vp: & she felt in her body, that she was healed of ye plague. Mark 5:30 And Iesus immediatly, knowyng in hym selfe, that vertue proceaded from hym, turned hym about in the prease, and sayde: who touched my clothes? Mark 5:31 And his disciples sayde vnto hym: thou seest the people thrust thee, & askest thou, who dyd touche me? Mark 5:32 And he loked rounde about, for to see her that had done this thyng. Mark 5:33 But the woman, fearyng & tremblyng, knowyng what was done within her, came, and fell downe before hym, and tolde hym all the trueth. Mark 5:34 And he sayde vnto her: Daughter thy fayth hath saued thee, go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
and raiseth from death Jairus' daughter.
Mark 5:35 Whyle he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogues [house], certayne, which sayde: thy daughter is dead, why diseasest thou the maister any further? Mark 5:36 Assoone as Iesus hearde the worde that was spoken, he sayde vnto the ruler of the synagogue, be not afrayde, only beleue. Mark 5:37 And he suffred no man to folowe him, saue Peter, and Iames, and Iohn the brother of Iames. Mark 5:38 And he came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and sawe the tumult, and them that wept & wayled greatly. Mark 5:39 And went in, and sayde vnto them: why make ye this a doe, and wepe? the damsell is not dead, but slepeth. Mark 5:40 And they laught hym to scorne: But he put them all out, and taketh the father and the mother of the damsell, and them that were with hym, and entreth in where the damsell laye, Mark 5:41 And taketh the damsell by the hande, and sayth vnto her. Talitha cumi, which is, yf one do interprete it, damsell (I say vnto thee) aryse. Mark 5:42 And strayghtway the damsell arose, and walked: For she was of the age of twelue yeres. And they were astonyed out of measure. Mark 5:43 And he charged them straytly, that no man shoulde knowe of it: and commaunded to geue her meate.
