d. The Casting Out of an Epileptic Demon

14 aAnd when they came to the crowd, a man came to Him, falling on his knees before Him and saying,

15 Lord, have mercy on my son, for he 1has epilepsy and suffers terribly; for often he falls into the fire and often into the water.

16 And I brought him to Your disciples, and they were not able to heal him.

17 And Jesus answered and said, O aunbelieving and bperverted generation! How long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.

18 And Jesus arebuked it, and the demon came out from him; and the boy was healed from that hour.

19 Then the disciples, coming to Jesus privately, said, Why were we not able to cast it out?

20 And He said to them, Because of your alittle faith; for truly I say to you, If you have faith like a bmustard seed, you will say to this cmountain, Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be dimpossible to you.

21 1But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.
