The Unclean Spirit - Mark 5

Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea,  into the country of the Gadarenes. 

Mark 5:2 And when he was  come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the  tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 

Mark 5:3 Who had his  dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no,  not with chains: 

Mark 5:4 Because that he had been often  bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been  plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces:  neither could any man tame him. 

Mark 5:5 And always, night  and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying,  and cutting himself with stones. 

Mark 5:6 But when he saw  Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 

Mark 5:7 And cried  with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee,  Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by  God, that thou torment me not. 

Mark 5:8 For he said unto him,  Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 

Mark 5:9 And he  asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying,  My name is Legion: for we are many. 

Gospel of Mark

Mark 5:10 And he  besought him much that he would not send them away out  of the country. 

Mark 5:11 Now there was there nigh unto the  mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 

Mark 5:12 And all the  devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we  may enter into them. 

Mark 5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them  leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the  swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into  the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked  in the sea. 

Mark 5:14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told  it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see  what it was that was done. 

Mark 5:15 And they come to Jesus,  and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the  legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they  were afraid. 

Mark 5:16 And they that saw it told them how it  befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also  concerning the swine. 

Mark 5:17 And they began to pray him to  depart out of their coasts. 

Mark 5:18 And when he was come  into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil  prayed him that he might be with him. 

Mark 5:19 Howbeit  Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy  friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done  for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 

Mark 5:20 And he  departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great  things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.   

Mark 5:21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto  the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was  nigh unto the sea. 

Mark 5:22 And, behold, there cometh one of  the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he  saw him, he fell at his feet, 

Mark 5:23 And besought him  greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death:  I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may  be healed; and she shall live. 

Mark 5:24 And Jesus went with  him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.  

Mark 5:25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood  twelve years, 

Mark 5:26 And had suffered many things of many  physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing  bettered, but rather grew worse, 

Mark 5:27 When she had heard  of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.  

Mark 5:28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be  whole. 

Mark 5:29 And straightway the fountain of her blood  was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed  of that plague. 

Mark 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in  himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in  the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? 

Mark 5:31 And  his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude  thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 

Mark 5:32  And he looked round about to see her that had done this  thing. 

Mark 5:33 But the woman fearing and trembling,  knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before  him, and told him all the truth. 

Mark 5:34 And he said unto her,  Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and  be whole of thy plague. 

Mark 5:35 While he yet spake, there  came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain  which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the  Master any further? 

Mark 5:36 As soon as Jesus heard the word  that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue,  Be not afraid, only believe. 

Mark 5:37 And he suffered no man  to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother  of James. 

Mark 5:38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of  the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and  wailed greatly. 

Mark 5:39 And when he was come in, he saith  unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is  not dead, but sleepeth. 

Mark 5:40 And they laughed him to  scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father  and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him,  and entereth in where the damsel was lying. 

Mark 5:41 And he  took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha  cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee,  arise. 

Mark 5:42 And straightway the damsel arose, and  walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they  were astonished with a great astonishment. 

Mark 5:43 And he  charged them straitly that no man should know it; and  commanded that something should be given her to eat.
