29Then they left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon and Andrew, along with James and John. 30Simon’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a fever, so they told Jesus about her. 31He went to her, took her by the hand, and helped her up. The fever immediately left her. Then she made them a meal. 32After sunset that evening, those who were sick and demon-possessed were brought to Jesus. 34He healed many people who had various diseases, and threw out many demons. He did not permit the demons to speak, for they knew who he was. 40A leper came to him asking for help. The man kneeled down before Jesus, saying, “Please, if you’re willing, you can heal me!” 41With compassion Jesus reached out and touched the man, and said, “I am willing. Be healed!” 42The leprosy left him immediately, and he was healed.
