Luke 8 (WEBP)

[1] Soon afterwards, he went about through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of God’s Kingdom. With him were the twelve,
[2] and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary who was called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out;
[3] and Joanna, the wife of Chuzas, Herod’s steward; Susanna; and many others who served them° from their possessions.
[4] When a great multitude came together and people from every city were coming to him, he spoke by a parable:
[5] “The farmer went out to sow his seed. As he sowed, some fell along the road, and it was trampled under foot, and the birds of the sky devoured it.
[6] Other seed fell on the rock, and as soon as it grew, it withered away, because it had no moisture.
[7] Other fell amid the thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it.
[8] Other fell into the good ground and grew and produced one hundred times as much fruit.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
[9] Then his disciples asked him, “What does this parable mean?”
[10] He said, “To you it is given to know the mysteries of God’s Kingdom, but to the rest it is given in parables, that ‘seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’
[11] “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
[12] Those along the road are those who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, that they may not believe and be saved.
[13] Those on the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; but these have no root. They believe for a while, then fall away in time of temptation.
[14] What fell among the thorns, these are those who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life; and they bring no fruit to maturity.
[15] Those in the good ground, these are those who with an honest and good heart, having heard the word, hold it tightly, and produce fruit with perseverance.
[16] “No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a container or puts it under a bed; but puts it on a stand, that those who enter in may see the light.
[17] For nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
[18] Be careful therefore how you hear. For whoever has, to him will be given; and whoever doesn’t have, from him will be taken away even that which he thinks he has.”
[19] His mother and brothers came to him, and they could not come near him for the crowd.
[20] Some people told him, “Your mother and your brothers stand outside, desiring to see you.”
[21] But he answered them, “My mother and my brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”
[22] Now on one of those days, he entered into a boat, himself and his disciples, and he said to them, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.” So they launched out.
[23] But as they sailed, he fell asleep. A wind storm came down on the lake, and they were taking on dangerous amounts of water.
[24] They came to him and awoke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are dying!” He awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water; then they ceased, and it was calm.
[25] He said to them, “Where is your faith?” Being afraid, they marveled, saying to one another, “Who is this then, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?”
[26] Then they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee.
[27] When Jesus stepped ashore, a certain man out of the city who had demons for a long time met him. He wore no clothes, and didn’t live in a house, but in the tombs.
[28] When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, “What do I have to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torment me!”
[29] For Jesus was commanding the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For the unclean spirit had often seized the man. He was kept under guard and bound with chains and fetters. Breaking the bonds apart, he was driven by the demon into the desert.
[30] Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” He said, “Legion,” for many demons had entered into him.
[31] They begged him that he would not command them to go into the abyss.
[32] Now there was there a herd of many pigs feeding on the mountain, and they begged him that he would allow them to enter into those. Then he allowed them.
[33] The demons came out of the man and entered into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.
[34] When those who fed them saw what had happened, they fled and told it in the city and in the country.
[35] People went out to see what had happened. They came to Jesus and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus’ feet, clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
[36] Those who saw it told them how he who had been possessed by demons was healed.
[37] All the people of the surrounding country of the Gadarenes asked him to depart from them, for they were very much afraid. Then he entered into the boat and returned.
[38] But the man from whom the demons had gone out begged him that he might go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying,
[39] “Return to your house, and declare what great things God has done for you.” He went his way, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.
[40] When Jesus returned, the multitude welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
[41] Behold, a man named Jairus came. He was a ruler of the synagogue. He fell down at Jesus’ feet and begged him to come into his house,
[42] for he had an only born§ daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as he went, the multitudes pressed against him.
[43] A woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her living on physicians and could not be healed by any,
[44] came behind him and touched the fringe§ of his cloak. Immediately the flow of her blood stopped.
[45] Jesus said, “Who touched me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes press and jostle you, and you say, ‘Who touched me?’
[46] But Jesus said, “Someone did touch me, for I perceived that power has gone out of me.”
[47] When the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before him declared to him in the presence of all the people the reason why she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
[48] He said to her, “Daughter, cheer up. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
[49] While he still spoke, one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house came, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Don’t trouble the Teacher.”
[50] But Jesus hearing it, answered him, “Don’t be afraid. Only believe, and she will be healed.”
[51] When he came to the house, he didn’t allow anyone to enter in, except Peter, John, James, the father of the child, and her mother.
[52] All were weeping and mourning her, but he said, “Don’t weep. She isn’t dead, but sleeping.”
[53] They were ridiculing him, knowing that she was dead.
[54] But he put them all outside, and taking her by the hand, he called, saying, “Child, arise!”
[55] Her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately. He commanded that something be given to her to eat.
[56] Her parents were amazed, but he commanded them to tell no one what had been done.

Luke 8 (KJVS)

[1] And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) afterward G1722 G2517, that G2532 he G846 went G1353 (ImpfActInd) throughout every G2596 city G4172 and G2532 village G2968, preaching G2784 (PresActPtc) and G2532 shewing the glad tidings G2097 (PresMidPtc) of the kingdom G932 of God G2316: and G2532 the twelve G1427 [were] with G4862 him G846,
[2] And G2532 certain G5100 women G1135, which G3739 had been G2258 (ImpfInd) healed G2323 (PerfPasPtc) of G575 evil G4190 spirits G4151 and G2532 infirmities G769, Mary G3137 called G2564 (PresPasPtc) Magdalene G3094, out of G575 whom G3739 went G1831 (PlupfActInd) seven G2033 devils G1140,
[3] And G2532 Joanna G2489 the wife G1135 of Chuza G5529 Herod’s G2264 steward G2012, and G2532 Susanna G4677, and G2532 many G4183 others G2087, which G3748 ministered G1247 (ImpfActInd) unto him G846 of G575 their G846 substance G5224 (PresActPtc).
[4] And G1161 when much G4183 people G3793 were gathered together G4896 (PresPtc), and G2532 were come G1975 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to G4314 him G846 out of every G2596 city G4172, he spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) by G1223 a parable G3850:
[5] A sower G4687 (PresActPtc) went out G1831 (Aor2ActInd) to sow G4687 (AorActInf) his G846 seed G4703: and G2532 as G1722 he G846 sowed G4687 (PresActInf), some G3739 G3303 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) by G3844 the way side G3598; and G2532 it was trodden down G2662 (AorPasInd), and G2532 the fowls G4071 of the air G3772 devoured G2719 (Aor2ActInd) it G846.
[6] And G2532 some G2087 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) upon G1909 a rock G4073; and G2532 as soon as it was sprung up G5453 (Aor2PasPtc), it withered away G3583 (AorPasInd), because G1223 it lacked G3361 G2192 (PresActInf) moisture G2429.
[7] And G2532 some G2087 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) among G1722 G3319 thorns G173; and G2532 the thorns G173 sprang up with it G4855 (Aor2PasPtc), and choked G638 (AorActInd) G1970 (AorActInd) it G846.
[8] And G2532 other G2087 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) on G1909 good G18 ground G1093, and G2532 sprang up G5453 (Aor2PasPtc), and bare G4160 (AorActInd) fruit G2590 an hundredfold G1542. And when he had said G3004 (PresActPtc) these things G5023, he cried G5455 (ImpfActInd), He that hath G2192 (PresActPtc) ears G3775 to hear G191 (PresActInf), let him hear G191 (PresActImpr).
[9] And G1161 his G846 disciples G3101 asked G1905 (ImpfActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), What G5101 might G1498 this G3778 parable G3850 be G1498 (PresOpt)?
[10] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Unto you G5213 it is given G1325 (PerfPasInd) to know G1097 (Aor2ActInf) the mysteries G3466 of the kingdom G932 of God G2316: but G1161 to others G3062 in G1722 parables G3850; that G2443 seeing G991 (PresActPtc) they might G991 not G3361 see G991 (PresActSubj), and G2532 hearing G191 (PresActPtc) they might G4920 not G3361 understand G4920 (PresActSubj).
[11] Now G1161 the parable G3850 is G2076 (PresInd) this G3778: The seed G4703 is G2076 (PresInd) the word G3056 of God G2316.
[12] Those G1161 by G3844 the way side G3598 are G1526 (PresInd) they that hear G191 (PresActPtc); then G1534 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd) the devil G1228, and G2532 taketh away G142 (PresActInd) the word G3056 out of G575 their G846 hearts G2588, lest G3363 they should believe G4100 (AorActPtc) and be saved G4982 (AorPasSubj).
[13] G1161 They on G1909 the rock G4073 [are they], which G3739, when G3752 they hear G191 (AorActSubj), receive G1209 (PresMidPasDepInd) the word G3056 with G3326 joy G5479; and G2532 these G3778 have G2192 (PresActInd) no G3756 root G4491, which G3739 for G4314 a while G2540 believe G4100 (PresActInd), and G2532 in G1722 time G2540 of temptation G3986 fall away G868 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[14] And G1161 that which fell G4098 (Aor2ActPtc) among G1519 thorns G173 are G1526 (PresInd) they G3778, which, when they have heard G191 (AorActPtc), go forth G4198 (PresMidPasDepPtc), and G2532 are choked G4846 (PresPasInd) with G5259 cares G3308 and G2532 riches G4149 and G2532 pleasures G2237 of [this] life G979, and G2532 bring G5052 no G3756 fruit to perfection G5052 (PresActInd).
[15] But G1161 that on G1722 the good G2570 ground G1093 are G1526 (PresInd) they G3778, which G3748 in G1722 an honest G2570 and G2532 good G18 heart G2588, having heard G191 (AorActPtc) the word G3056, keep G2722 (PresActInd) [it], and G2532 bring forth fruit G2592 (PresActInd) with G1722 patience G5281.
[16] G1161 No man G3762, when he hath lighted G681 (AorActPtc) a candle G3088, covereth G2572 (PresActInd) it G846 with a vessel G4632, or G2228 putteth G5087 (PresActInd) [it] under G5270 a bed G2825; but G235 setteth G2007 (PresActInd) [it] on G1909 a candlestick G3087, that G2443 they which enter in G1531 (PresMidPasDepPtc) may see G991 (PresActSubj) the light G5457.
[17] For G1063 nothing G3756 is G2076 (PresInd) secret G2927, that G3739 shall G1096 not G3756 be made G1096 (FutMidDepInd) manifest G5318; neither G3761 [any thing] hid G614, that G3739 shall G1097 not G3756 be known G1097 (FutPasInd) and G2532 come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) abroad G1519 G5318.
[18] Take heed G991 (PresActImpr) therefore G3767 how G4459 ye hear G191 (PresActInd): for G1063 whosoever G3739 G302 hath G2192 (PresActSubj), to him G846 shall be given G1325 (FutPasInd); and G2532 whosoever G3739 G302 hath G2192 (PresActSubj) not G3361, from G575 him G846 shall be taken G142 (FutPasInd) even G2532 that which G3739 he seemeth G1380 (PresActInd) to have G2192 (PresActInf).
[19] Then G1161 came G3854 (Aor2MidDepInd) to G4314 him G846 [his] mother G3384 and G2532 his G846 brethren G80, and G2532 could G1410 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) not G3756 come G4940 (Aor2ActInf) at him G846 for G1223 the press G3793.
[20] And G2532 it was told G518 (Aor2PasDepSubj) him G846 [by certain] which said G3004 (PresActPtc), Thy G4675 mother G3384 and G2532 thy G4675 brethren G80 stand G2476 (PerfActInd) without G1854, desiring G2309 (PresActPtc) to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) thee G4571.
[21] And G1161 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, My G3450 mother G3384 and G2532 my G3450 brethren G80 are G1526 (PresInd) these G3778 which G3588 hear G191 (PresActPtc) the word G3056 of God G2316, and G2532 do G4160 (PresActPtc) it G846.
[22] Now G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) on G1722 a certain G3391 day G2250, that G2532 he G846 went G1684 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 a ship G4143 with G2532 his G846 disciples G3101: and G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Let us go over G1330 (Aor2ActSubj) unto G1519 the other side G4008 of the lake G3041. And G2532 they launched forth G321 (AorPasInd).
[23] But G1161 as they G846 sailed G4126 (PresActPtc) he fell asleep G879 (AorActInd): and G2532 there came down G2597 (Aor2ActInd) a storm G2978 of wind G417 on G1519 the lake G3041; and G2532 they were filled G4845 (ImpfPasInd) [with water], and G2532 were in jeopardy G2793 (ImpfActInd).
[24] And G1161 they came to him G4334 (Aor2ActPtc), and awoke G1326 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Master G1988, master G1988, we perish G622 (PresMidInd). Then G1161 he arose G1453 (AorPasPtc), and rebuked G2008 (AorActInd) the wind G417 and G2532 the raging G2830 of the water G5204: and G2532 they ceased G3973 (AorMidInd), and G2532 there was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a calm G1055.
[25] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Where G4226 is G2076 (PresInd) your G5216 faith G4102? And G1161 they being afraid G5399 (AorPasDepPtc) wondered G2296 (AorActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc) one to another G4314 G240, What manner of man G5101 G686 is G2076 (PresInd) this G3778! for G3754 he commandeth G2004 (PresActInd) even G2532 the winds G417 and G2532 water G5204, and G2532 they obey G5219 (PresActInd) him G846.
[26] And G2532 they arrived G2668 (AorActInd) at G1519 the country G5561 of the Gadarenes G1046, which G3748 is G2076 (PresInd) over against G495 Galilee G1056.
[27] And G1161 when he G846 went forth G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) to G1909 land G1093, there met G5221 (AorActInd) him G846 out of G1537 the city G4172 a certain G5100 man G435, which G3739 had G2192 (ImpfActInd) devils G1140 long G1537 G2425 time G5550, and G2532 ware G1737 (ImpfMidInd) no G3756 clothes G2440, neither G2532 G3756 abode G3306 (ImpfActInd) in G1722 [any] house G3614, but G235 in G1722 the tombs G3418.
[28] When G1161 he saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) Jesus G2424, he cried out G349 (AorActPtc), and G2532 fell down before G4363 (Aor2ActInd) him G846, and G2532 with a loud G3173 voice G5456 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), What G5101 have I G1698 to do with G2532 thee G4671, Jesus G2424, [thou] Son G5207 of God G2316 most high G5310? I beseech G1189 (PresMidPasDepInd) thee G4675, torment G928 (AorActSubj) me G3165 not G3361.
[29] (For G1063 he had commanded G3853 (ImpfActInd) G3853 (AorActInd) the unclean G169 spirit G4151 to come G1831 (Aor2ActInf) out of G575 the man G444. For G1063 oftentimes G4183 G5550 it had caught G4884 (PlupfActInd) him G846: and G2532 he was kept G5442 (PresPasPtc) bound G1196 (ImpfPasInd) with chains G254 and G2532 in fetters G3976; and G2532 he brake G1284 (PresActPtc) the bands G1199, and was driven G1643 (ImpfPasInd) of G5259 the devil G1142 into G1519 the wilderness G2048.)
[30] And G1161 Jesus G2424 asked G1905 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), What G5101 is G2076 (PresInd) thy G4671 name G3686? And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Legion G3003: because G3754 many G4183 devils G1140 were entered G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 him G846.
[31] And G2532 they besought G3870 (ImpfActInd) G3870 (ImpfActInd) him G846 that G3363 he would G2004 not G3363 command G2004 (AorActSubj) them G846 to go out G565 (Aor2ActInf) into G1519 the deep G12.
[32] And G1161 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) there G1563 an herd G34 of many G2425 swine G5519 feeding G1006 (PresPasPtc) on G1722 the mountain G3735: and G2532 they besought G3870 (ImpfActInd) him G846 that G2443 he would suffer G2010 (AorActSubj) them G846 to enter G1525 (Aor2ActInf) into G1519 them G1565. And G2532 he suffered G2010 (AorActInd) them G846.
[33] Then G1161 went G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) the devils G1140 out of G575 the man G444, and entered G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the swine G5519: and G2532 the herd G34 ran G3729 (AorActInd) violently down G2596 a steep G2911 place into G1519 the lake G3041, and G2532 were choked G638 (Aor2PasDepSubj).
[34] When G1161 they that fed G1006 (PresActPtc) [them] saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) what was done G1096 (PerfPasPtc), they fled G5343 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 went G565 (Aor2ActPtc) and told G518 (AorActInd) [it] in G1519 the city G4172 and G2532 in G1519 the country G68.
[35] Then G1161 they went out G1831 (Aor2ActInd) to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) what was done G1096 (Perf2ActPtc); and G2532 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G4314 Jesus G2424, and G2532 found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) the man G444, out of G575 whom G3739 the devils G1140 were departed G1831 (PlupfActInd), sitting G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc) at G3844 the feet G4228 of Jesus G2424, clothed G2439 (PerfPasPtc), and G2532 in his right mind G4993 (PresActPtc): and G2532 they were afraid G5399 (AorPasDepInd).
[36] G1161 They also G2532 which saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) [it] told G518 (AorActInd) them G846 by what means G4459 he that was possessed of the devils G1139 (AorPasDepPtc) was healed G4982 (AorPasInd).
[37] Then G2532 the whole G537 multitude G4128 of the country G4066 of the Gadarenes G1046 round about G4066 besought G2065 (AorActInd) him G846 to depart G565 (Aor2ActInf) from G575 them G846; for G3754 they were taken G4912 (ImpfPasInd) with great G3173 fear G5401: and G1161 he G846 went up G1684 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 the ship G4143, and returned back again G5290 (AorActInd).
[38] Now G1161 the man G435 out of G575 whom G3739 the devils G1140 were departed G1831 (PlupfActInd) besought G1189 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) him G846 that he might be G1511 (PresInf) with G4862 him G846: but G1161 Jesus G2424 sent G630 him G846 away G630 (AorActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[39] Return G5290 (PresActImpr) to G1519 thine own G4675 house G3624, and G2532 shew G1334 (PresMidPasDepImpr) how great things G3745 God G2316 hath done G4160 (AorActInd) unto thee G4671. And G2532 he went his way G565 (Aor2ActInd), and published G2784 (PresActPtc) throughout G2596 the whole G3650 city G4172 how great things G3745 Jesus G2424 had done G4160 (AorActInd) unto him G846.
[40] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that, when G1722 Jesus G2424 was returned G5290 (AorActInf), the people G3793 [gladly] received G588 (AorMidDepInd) him G846: for G1063 they were G2258 (ImpfInd) all G3956 waiting for G4328 (PresActPtc) him G846.
[41] And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), there came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) a man G435 named G3739 G3686 Jairus G2383, and G2532 he G846 was G5225 (ImpfActInd) a ruler G758 of the synagogue G4864: and G2532 he fell down G4098 (Aor2ActPtc) at G3844 Jesus G2424’ feet G4228, and besought G3870 (ImpfActInd) him G846 that he would come G1525 (Aor2ActInf) into G1519 his G846 house G3624:
[42] For G3754 he G846 had G2258 (ImpfInd) one only G3439 daughter G2364, about G5613 twelve G1427 years of age G2094, and G2532 she G3778 G846 lay a dying G599 (ImpfActInd). But G1161 as G1722 he G846 went G5217 (PresActInf) the people G3793 thronged G4846 (ImpfActInd) him G846.
[43] And G2532 a woman G1135 having G5607 (PresPtc) G1722 an issue G4511 of blood G129 twelve G1427 years G575 G2094, which G3748 had spent G4321 (AorActPtc) all G3650 her living G979 upon G1519 physicians G2395, neither G3756 could G2480 (AorActInd) be healed G2323 (AorPasInf) of G5259 any G3762,
[44] Came G4334 (Aor2ActPtc) behind G3693 [him], and touched G680 (AorMidDepInd) the border G2899 of his G846 garment G2440: and G2532 immediately G3916 her G846 issue G4511 of blood G129 stanched G2476 (Aor2ActInd).
[45] And G2532 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Who G5101 touched G680 (AorMidPtc) me G3450? When G1161 all G3956 denied G720 (PresMidPasDepPtc), Peter G4074 and G2532 they that were with G3326 him G846 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Master G1988, the multitude G3793 throng G4912 (PresActInd) thee G4571 and G2532 press G598 (PresActInd) [thee], and G2532 sayest G3004 (PresActInd) thou, Who G5101 touched G680 (AorMidPtc) me G3450?
[46] And G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Somebody G5100 hath touched G680 (AorMidDepInd) me G3450: for G1063 I G1473 perceive G1097 (Aor2ActInd) that virtue G1411 is gone G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) out of G575 me G1700.
[47] And G1161 when the woman G1135 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) that G3754 she was G2990 not
