1 WHEN he came down from the mountain great crowds followed him. 2And now a leper approached him, bowed before him, and said, ‘Sir, if only you will, you can make me clean.’ 3Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, ‘I will; be clean.’ And his leprosy was cured immediately. 4Then Jesus said to him, ‘See that you tell nobody; but go and show yourself to the priest, and make the offering laid down by Moses to certify the cure.’

5As Jesus entered Capernaum a centurion came up to ask his help. 6‘Sir,’ he said, ‘my servant is lying at home paralysed and racked with pain.’ 7Jesus said, ‘I will come and cure him.’ 8But the centurion replied, ‘Sir, I am not worthy to have you under my roof. You need only say the word and my servant will be cured. 9I know, for I am myself under orders, with soldiers under me. I say to one, “Go,” and he goes; to another, “Come here,” and he comes; and to my servant, “Do this,” and he does it.’ 10Jesus heard him with astonishment, and said to the people who were following him, ‘Truly I tell you: nowhere in Israel have I found such faith. 11Many, I tell you, will come from east and west to sit with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the banquet in the kingdom of Heaven. 12But those who were born to the kingdom will be thrown out into the dark, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.’ 13Then Jesus said to the centurion, ‘Go home; as you have believed, so let it be.’ At that very moment the boy recovered.

14Jesus then went to Peter's house and found Peter's mother-in-law in bed with fever. 15So he took her by the hand; the fever left her, and she got up and attended to his needs.

16That evening they brought to him many who were possessed by demons; and he drove the spirits out with a word and healed all who were sick, 17to fulfil the prophecy of Isaiah: ‘He took our illnesses from us and carried away our diseases.’

18 AT the sight of the crowd surrounding him Jesus gave word to cross to the other side of the lake. 19A scribe came up and said to him, ‘Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.’ 20Jesus replied, ‘Foxes have their holes and birds their roosts; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’ 21Another man, one of his disciples, said to him, ‘Lord, let me go and bury my father first.’ 22Jesus replied, ‘Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.’

23Jesus then got into the boat, and his disciples followed. 24All at once a great storm arose on the lake, till the waves were breaking right over the boat; but he went on sleeping. 25So they came and woke him, saying: ‘Save us, Lord; we are sinking!’ 26‘Why are you such cowards?’ he said. ‘How little faith you have!’ With that he got up and rebuked the wind and the sea, and there was a dead calm. 27The men were astonished at what had happened, and exclaimed, ‘What sort of man is this? Even the wind and the sea obey him.’
