12. Healing a Deaf and Dumb Man
31 And again He acame out of the borders of bTyre and came through Sidon to the Sea of 1cGalilee in the midst of the borders of 2dDecapolis.
32 And they brought to Him 1one who was adeaf and who bspoke with difficulty, and they entreated Him to clay His hand on him.
33 And He took him aside from the crowd privately and 1put His fingers into his ears, and He aspat and touched his tongue.
34 And alooking up to heaven, He bgroaned and said to him, 1Ephphatha! that is, Be opened!
35 And aimmediately his ears were opened, and the bond on his tongue was released and he spoke clearly.
36 And He charged them 1not to tell aanyone. But the more He charged them, so much the more they bproclaimed it.
37 And they were utterly aastounded, saying, He has done all things well; He makes both the deaf hear and the dumb speak.
