Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit

37 qOn the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a great crowd met him. 38 And behold, a man from the crowd cried out, Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for rhe is my only child. 39 And behold, a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly cries out. It convulses him so that he foams at the mouth, and shatters him, and will hardly leave him. 40 And I begged your disciples to cast it out, but sthey could not. 41 Jesus answered, O tfaithless and twisted generation, uhow long am I to be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here. 42 While he was coming, the demon threw him to the ground and convulsed him. But Jesus vrebuked the unclean spirit and healed the boy, and wgave him back to his father.

14 aAnd when they came to the crowd, a man came up to him and, kneeling before him, 15 said, Lord, have mercy on my son, for he has bseizures and he suffers terribly. For often he falls into the fire, and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples, and cthey could not heal him. 17 And Jesus answered, O faithless and dtwisted generation, how long am I to be with you? eHow long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me. 18 And Jesus frebuked the demon,1 and it2 came out of him, and gthe boy was healed instantly.3 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, Why could we not cast it out?

14 jAnd when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, kwere greatly amazed and ran up to him and greeted him. 16 And he asked them, What are you arguing about with them? 17 And someone from the crowd answered him, Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has la spirit that makes him mute. 18 And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast it out, and mthey were not able. 19 And he answered them, O nfaithless generation, nhow long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me. 20 And they brought the boy to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it oconvulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, How long has this been happening to him? And he said, From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But pif you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us. 23 And Jesus said to him, pIf you can! qAll things are possible for one who believes. 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out1 and said, I believe; rhelp my unbelief! 25 And when Jesus saw that sa crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, tYou mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again. 26 And after crying out and oconvulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, He is dead. 27 But Jesus utook him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when he had ventered the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could we not cast it out?
