10. Curing the Dying One
1 After He completed all His words in the 1hearing of the people, He 2aentered into bCapernaum.
2 And a certain acenturion's slave, who was highly valued by him, was ill and about to die.
3 And when he heard about Jesus, he sent to Him some elders of the Jews, requesting that He would come and 1completely heal his slave.
4 And when they came to Jesus, they entreated Him earnestly, saying, He is worthy of Your granting this to him,
5 For he loves our nation, and he himself built the asynagogue for us.
6 And Jesus went with them. But already, when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, Lord, do anot trouble Yourself, for I am not fit for You to enter under my roof;
7 Therefore, I did not count even myself worthy to come to You. But speak a aword, and let my servant be healed.
8 For I also am a man set under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my slave, Do this, and he does it.
9 And when Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turning to the crowd following Him, He said, I say to you, Not even in Israel have I found such great afaith.
10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.
