29Jesus and his followers left the synagogue. They all went at once with James and John to the home of Simon# Simon’s other name was Peter. and Andrew. 30Simon’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a fever. The people there told Jesus about her. 31So Jesus went to her bed, took her hand, and helped her up. Immediately the fever left her, and she was healed. Then she began serving them. 32That night, after the sun went down, the people brought to Jesus all who were sick. They also brought those who had demons in them. 34Jesus healed many who had different kinds of sicknesses. He also forced many demons to leave people. But he would not allow the demons to speak, because they knew who he was. 40A man who had a harmful skin disease came to Jesus. The man fell to his knees and begged Jesus, “I know that you can heal me if you will.” 41Jesus felt sorry for the man. So he touched him and said, “I want to heal you. Be healed!” 42At once the disease left the man, and he was healed.
