And (kai) they caused themselves to pause (epausanto), and (kai) it caused itself to become (egeneto) calm (galēnē).


8:25 But (de) he enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “Where (pou) [is] the (hē) belief (pistis) of you (humōn)!?”  


But (de) they having been made fearful (phobēthentes), they were amazed (ethaumasan), saying (legontes) to (pros) one another (allēlous), “So then (ara), who (tis) is (estin) this one (houtos) that (hoti) he makes arrangements over (epitassei) the (tois) winds (anemois) also (kai), and (kai) the (tō) water (hudati), and (kai) they obey (hupakouousin) him (autō)!?”

I cause myself to beg (deomai) of you (sou), do not torment (mē basanisēs) me (me)!”


8:29 Because (gar) he gave an instruction (parēngeilen) to the (tō) spirit (pneumatic), to the (tō) unclean one (akathartō), to come out (exelthein) from (apo) the (tou) mortal (anthrōpou).


Because (gar) many (pollois) times (chronois) it had snatched him together with (sunērpakei auton) [it].


And (kai) he was being bound (edesmeueto) to chains (halusesin) and (kai) to shackles (pedais), being watchfully guarded (phulassomenos), and (kai) braking through (diarrēssōn) the (ta) bounds (desma) he was being driven (ēlauneto) under (hupo) [authority] of the (tou) little demon (daimoniou) into (eis) the (tas) desolate places (erēmous).


8:30 But (de) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) inquired (epērōtēsen) of him (auton), “What (ti) is (estin) a name (onoma) for you (soi)?”


But (de) the (ho) [little demon] enunciated (eipen), “Legion (legiōn)”, because (hoti) many (polla) little demons (daimonia) entered in (eisēlthen) into (eis) him (auton).


8:31 And (kai) they were accosting (parakaloun) him (auton), in order that (hina) he may not make an arrangement (mē epitaxē) for them (autois) to go away (apelthein) into (eis) the (tēn) abyss (abbsson).


8:32 But (de) there was being (ēn) there (ekei) a herd (agelē) of a suitable number (hikanōn) of young swine (choirōn), being pastured (boskomenē) in (en) the (tō) mountain (orei).


And (kai) they accosted (parekalesan) him (auton), in order that (hina) he may turn over (epitrepsē) those (ekeinous) to them (autois), to enter in (eiselthein) into (eis) [them].


And (kai) he turned [them] over (epetrepsen) to them (autois).


8:33 But (de) the (ta) little demons (daimonia) having come out (exelthonta) from (apo) the (tou) mortal (anthrōpou), they entered in (eisēlthon) into (eis) the (tous) young swine (choirous).


And (kai) the (hē) herd (agelē) bolted (hōrmēsen) down (kata) the (tou) overhang (krēmnou) into (eis) the (tēn) harbor (limnēn), and (kai) it was choked (apepnigē).


8:34 But (de) the ones (hoi) pasturing (boskontes) [the herd, v33] having seen (idontes) the thing (to) having come to pass (gegonos), they fled (ephugon).


And (kai) they reported (apēngeilan) [it] into (eis) the (tēn) city (polin) and (kai) into (eis) the (tous) fields (agrous).


8:35 But (de) they went out (exēlthon) to see (idein) the thing (to) having come to pass (gegonos).


And (kai) they came (ēlthon) to (pros) the (ton) Jesus (Iēsoun), and (kai) they found (heuron) the (ton) mortal (anthrōpon) from (aph’) whom (hou) the (ta) little demons (daimonia) went out (exēlthen), he having been outer garmented (himatismenon) and (kai) causing himself to sit down (kathēmenon) alongside (para) of the (tou) feet (podas) of the (tou) Jesus (Iēsou).


And (kai) they were caused to be in fear (ephobēthēsan).


8:36 But (de) the ones (hoi) reported (apēngeilan) to them (autois), having seen (idontes) how (pōs) the one (ho) having been demon-possessed (daimonistheis) was made whole (esōthē).


8:37 And (kai) absolutely all (hapan), the (to) plethora (plēthos) of the (tēs) region around (perichōrou) the (tōn) Gerasenes (Gerasēōn), inquired (ērōtēsen) of him (auton) to go away (apelthein) from (ap’) them (autōn) because (hoti) they were being held together with (suneichonto) great (megalō) fear (phobō).


But (de) he having embarked (embas) into (eis) a ship (ploion), he returned (hupestrepsen).


8:38 But (de) the (ho) male (anēr), from (aph’) whom (hou) the (ta) little demons (daimonia) had come out (exelēluthei), was causing himself to beg (edeito) of him (autou) to be (einai) with (sun) him (autō).


But (de) he sent him away (apelusen auton), saying (legōn),


8:39 “Return (hupostrephe) into (eis) the (ton) house (oikon) of you (sou), and (kai) cause yourself to lead through (diēgou) as many things as (hosa) the (ho) God (theos) did (epoiēsen) for you (soi).”


And (kai) he went away (apēlthen) down through (kath’) the (tēn) whole (holēn) city (polin) preaching (kērussōn) as many things as (hosa) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) did (epoiēsen) for him (autō).


8:40 But (de) in (en) the (tō) [time] of the (ton) Jesus (Iēsoun) to return (hupostrephein), the (ho) crowd (ochlos) caused itself to receive (apedexatpo) him (auton), because (gar) they were all being (ēsan pantes) ones expecting (prosdokōntes) him (auton).


8:41 And (kai) behold (idou), there came (ēlthen) a male (anēr) to whom (hō) [was] a name (onoma) Jairus (iairos)!  


And (kai) this one (houtos) was being a subordinate (hupērchen) chief one758 (archōn) of the (tēs) synagogue (sunagōgēs)


And (kai) he having fallen4098 (pēson) alongside (para) the (tous) feet (podas) of the (tou) Jesus (Iēsou), he was accosting (parekalei) him (auton) to enter in (eiselthein) into (eis) the (ton) house (oikon) of him (autou);


8:42 because (hoti) to him (autō) there was being (ēn) an only genus3439 (monogenēs), a daughter (thugatēr), as (hōs) of twelve (dōdeka) years (etōn), and (kai) she (autē) was dying away (apethnēsken).  


But (de) in (en) the (tō) [attempt of] him (auton) to get underway (hupagein), the (hoi) crowds (ochloi) were together choking him in (sunepnigon auton).


8:43 And (kai) a female (gunē) being (ousa) in (en) a flow (rhusei) of blood (haimatos) from (apo) [the age] of twelve (dōdeka) years (etōn), one who (hētis), having consumed up toward (prosanalōsasa) healers (iatrois) the (ton) whole (holon) living (bion) [of her], was absolutely not strong (ouk ischusen) [enough] to be given therapy (therapeuthēnai) from (ap’) absolutely not one (oudenos)!


8:44 She having come toward (proselthousa) [him] from behind (opisthen), she caused herself to took hold (hēpsato) of the (tou) hem (kraspedou) of the (tou) outer garment (himatiou of him (autou).


And (kai) the (hē) flow (rhusis) of the (tou) blood (haimatos) of her (autēs) necessarily (parachrēma) stood still (estē)!


8:45 And (kai) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen), “Who (tis) [is] the one (ho) having caused himself to take hold (hapsamenos) of me (mou)?” 


But (de) everyone (pantōn) being caused to deny (arnoumenōn) [it], the (ho) Peter (Petros) and (kai) the ones (hoi) together with (sun) him (autō) enunciated (eipen), “Master (epistata), the (hoi) crowds (ochloi) hold together with (sunechousin) you (se), and (kai) they crowd [you] off (apothlibousin)!”


8:46 But (de) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen), “Someone (tis) caused himself to take hold (hēpsato) of me (mou), because (gar) I (egō) knew (egnōn) of an inherently powered work (dunamin) having gone out (exelēluthuian) from (ap’) me (emou).”


8:47 But (de) the (hē) female (gunē) having seen (idousa) that (hoti) she absolutely did not escape notice (ouk elathen), she came (ēlthen) trembling (tremousa).


And (kai) she having fallen toward4363 (prospesousa) him (autō), she reported (apēngeilen) in sight (enōpion) of all (pantos) of the (tou) people (laou) through (di’) what (hēn) cause (aitian) she caused herself to take hold (hēpsato) of him (autou), and (kai) when (hōs) she was necessarily healed (iathē parachrēma).


8:48 But (de) the one (ho) enunciated (eipen) to (pros) her (autē), “Daughter (thugatēr), the (hē) belief (pistis) of you (sou) has made you whole (sesōken se)!


Cause yourself to go (poreuou) into (eis) peace (eirēnēn).”


8:49 Of him (autou) yet (eti) speaking (lalountos), someone (tis) is caused to come (erchetai) along (para) [from] the (tou) chief one of the synagogue (archisunagōgou), saying (legōn) that (hoti), “The (hē) daughter (thugatēr) has died (tethnēken).


[Make] the (ton) teacher (didaskalon) no longer yet (mēketi) grim (skulle).”


8:50 But (de) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) having heard (akousas) [it], he was caused to make a decision (apekrithē) for him (autō), “Do not be made fearful (mē phobou)!


Only (monon) believe (pisteuson), and (kai) she shall be made whole (sōthēsetai).”


8:51 But (de) he having come (elthōn) into (eis) the (tēn) house (oikian), he absolutely did not let go (ouk aphēken) of anyone (tina) to enter in (eiselthein) together with (sun) him (autō) if (ei) not (mē) Peter (Petron), and (kai) John (Iōannēn), and (kai) James (Iakōbon), and (kai) the (ton) father (patera) of the (tēs) child (paidos), and (kai) the (tēn) mother (mētera)!


8:52 But (de) all (pantes) were weeping (eklaion), and (kai) were beating themselves2875 (ekoptonto) of her (autēn) [death].


But (de) the (ho) [Jesus] enunciated (eipen), “Do not weep not (mē klaiete)!


Because (gar) she absolutely did not die away (ou apethanen), BUT (alla), she is down asleep (katheudei)!”


8:53 And (kai) they were laughing him down (kategelōn autou), they having seen (eidotes) that (hoti) she died away (apethanen).


8:54 But (de) he (autos) having powerfully held (kratēsas) the (tēs) hand (cheiros) of her (autēs), he made a sound (ephōnēsen), saying (legōn) to the (hē) child (pais), “Be aroused (egeire)!”


8:55 And (kai) the (to) spirit (pneuma) of her (autēs) turned back (epestrepsen), and (kai) she necessarily stood up (anestē parachrēma).


And (kai) he thoroughly arranged (dietaxen) for her (autē) to be given (dothēnai) [something] to eat (phagein).


8:56 And (kai) the (hoi) parents (goneis) of her (autēs) were ecstatic (exestēsan).  


But (de) the (ho) [Jesus] gave an instruction (parēngeilen) to them (autois), to enunciate (eipein) to not one (mēdeni) the thing (to) having come to pass (gegonos).
