Luke 8
1And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God-Theos: and the twelve [were] with him,
2And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Miryam [waters of strength] called Magdala [a tower], out of whom went seven demons,
3And Yochanan [gift of God] the wife of Kuza [the seer] Herod [heroic]’s steward, and Shoshanah [a lily], and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.
4And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spoke by a parable:
5A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trampled down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
6And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.
8And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bore fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that has ears to hear, let him hear.
9And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
10And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God-Theos: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
11Now the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God-The Father.
12Those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
13They on the rock [are they], which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
14And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of [this] life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
15But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep [it], and bring forth fruit with patience.
16No man, when he has lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts [it] under a bed; but sets [it] on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.
17For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
18Take heed therefore how you2f hear: for whosoever has, to him shall be given; and whosoever has not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have.
19Then came to him [his] mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press.
20And it was told him [by certain] which said, youri mother and youri brethren stand without, desiring to see youi.
21And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the Word of God-The Father, and do it.
22Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.
23But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled [with water], and were in jeopardy.
24And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
25And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commands even the winds and water, and they obey him.
26And they arrived at the country of the Gerasenes’ [those who come from pilgrimage or fight], which is over against Galil [circuit, district].
27And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had demons long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in [any] house, but in the tombs.
28When he saw Yeshua [God is Salvation], he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with youi, Yeshua [God is Salvation], [youi] Son of God-Theos most high? I beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) youi, torment me not.
29(For he had commanded the unclean Spirit [Ruach] to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he broke the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)
30And Yeshua [God is Salvation] asked him, saying, What is youri name? And he said, Legion: because many demons were entered into him.
31And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.
32And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer (allow, to let, permit) them to enter into them. And he suffered them.
33Then went the demons out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.
34When they that fed [them] saw what was done, they fled, and went and told [it] in the city and in the country.
35Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Yeshua [God is Salvation], and found the man, out of whom the demons were departed, sitting at the feet of Yeshua [God is Salvation], clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
36They also which saw [it] told them by what means he that was possessed of the demons was healed.
37Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gerasenes’ [those who come from pilgrimage or fight] round about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned back again.
38Now the man out of whom the demons were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Yeshua [God is Salvation] sent him away, saying,
39Return to youri own house, and show how great things God-Theos has done unto youi. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Yeshua [God is Salvation] had done unto him.
40And it came to pass, that, when Yeshua [God is Salvation] was returned, the people [gladly] received him: for they were all waiting for him.
41And, behold, there came a man named Ya’ir [God enlightens], and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Yeshua [God is Salvation]’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house:
42For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
43And a woman having an issue (what comes forth) of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44Came behind [him], and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue (what comes forth) of blood stanched (stopped flowing).
45And Yeshua [God is Salvation] said, Who touched me? When all denied, Kefa [pebble] and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng youi and press [youi], and say youi, Who touched me?
46And Yeshua [God is Salvation] said, Somebody has touched me: for I perceive that virtue (power) is gone out of me.
47And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
48And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: youri faith has made youi whole; go in peace.
49While he yet spoke, there comes one from the ruler of the synagogue’s [house], saying to him, You1s daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
50But when Yeshua [God is Salvation] heard [it], he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
51And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Kefa [pebble], and Ya’akov [heal-grabber], and Yochanan [Yehovah has graced], and the father and the mother of the virgin.
52And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleeps.
53And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
54And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.
55And her Spirit [Ruach] came again, and she arose immediately: and he commanded to give her meat.
56And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
