Matthew 8:6 And  saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy,  grievously tormented. 

Matthew 8:7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will  come and heal him. 

Matthew 8:8 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. 

Matthew 8:9 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.

Matthew 8:11  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. 

Matthew 8:12 But the children of  the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall  be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

Matthew 8:13 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.

Matthew 8:23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples  followed him. 

Matthew 8:24 And, behold, there arose a great  tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with  the waves: but he was asleep. 

Matthew 8:25 And his disciples  came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we  perish. 

Matthew 8:26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,  O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds  and the sea; and there was a great calm.
