Matthew 8:28Matthew 8:34

b. Over the Demons

28 aAnd when He came to the other side, into the region of the Gadarenes, two possessed by demons met Him, as they were coming out of the tombs, so exceedingly fierce that no one was able to pass by on that road.

29 And behold, they cried out, saying, 1aWhat do we have to do with You, 2bSon of God? Have You come here 3before the ctime to torment us?

30 Now there was, a good way off from them, a herd of many hogs feeding.

31 And the demons 1entreated Him, saying, If You cast us out, send us into the herd of hogs.

32 And He said to them, 1Go! And they came out and went into the hogs. And behold, the whole herd 2rushed down the steep slope into the sea, and they died in the waters.

33 And those who were feeding them fled and went away into the city and reported everything, including what had happened to those possessed by demons.

34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they entreated Him to 1adepart from their borders.
