Chapter 8

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)


      When he was come down from the mountain, much people followed him. And lo, there came a leper and worshipped him saying: Master, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand and touched him, saying: I will, be thou clean, and immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus said unto him. See thou tell no man, but go and show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, in witness to them.
      When Jesus was entered into Capernaum there came unto him a certain Centurion, and besought him saying: Master, my servant lieth sick at home of the palsy, and is grievously pained. And Jesus said unto him: I will come and heal him. The Centurion answered and said: Sir I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof, but speak the word only and my servant shall be healed. For I also myself am a man subject to the authority of another, and have soldiers under me, and I say to one go, and he goeth, and to another come, and he cometh: and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard that, he marvelled and said to them that followed him: Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith: no, not in Israel. I say therefore unto you that many shall come from the east and west, and shall rest with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven: and the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into utter darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then Jesus said unto the Centurion, go thy way, and as thou believest so be it unto thee. And his servant was healed the self hour.
       And then Jesus went to Peters house, and saw his wifes mother lying sick of a fever, and touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
      When the evening was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils. And he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all that were sick, to fulfil that which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet saying: he took on him our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
      When Jesus saw much people about him, he commanded to go over the water. And there came a Scribe and said unto him: Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him: the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the son of the man hath not whereon to rest his head. Another that was one of his Disciples said unto him: master, *suffer me first, to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him: follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.
      And he entered into a ship, and his Disciples followed him. And behold there arose a great tempest in the sea, in so much that the ship was covered with waves, and he was asleep. And his Disciples came to him, and awoke him saying: Master save us, we perish. And he said unto them: why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there followed a great calm. And the men marvelled and said: what man is this, that both winds and sea obey him?
      And when he was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesites, there met him two possessed of devils, which came out of the graves, and were out of measure fierce, so that no man might go by that way. And behold they cried out saying: O' Jesu the son of God, what have we to do with thee? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time be come? And there was a good way off from them a great herd of swine feeding. Then the devils besought him saying: if thou cast us out, suffer us to go our way into the herd of swine. And he said unto them: go your ways. Then went they out, and departed into the herd of swine. And behold the whole herd of swine was carried with violence headlong into the sea, and perished in the water. Then the herdsmen fled and went their ways in to the city, and told everything, and what had fortuned unto the possessed of the devils. And behold all the city came out and met Jesus, and when they saw him, they besought him to depart out of their coasts.

*suffer (allow)
