Lucas 8

1 AND it was after these things that Jeshu itinerated among the cities and villages, and preached and announced the kingdom of Aloha, and his twelve with him,

2 and those women who had been healed from infirmities and from evil spirits, Mariam who was called Magdalitha, she from whom he had cast out seven devils,

3 and Juchana the wife of Kusa, chief of the household of Herodes, and Shushan, and many others, who ministered unto him from their possessions.

4 And when a great multitude had assembled, and from all the cities had come to him, he discoursed in parables.

5 A sower went forth to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the road-side; and it was trodden down, and the fowl devoured it.

6 And other fell upon the rock; and it immediately sprang up, and, because it had no moisture, it withered.

7 And other fell among thorns, and they sprang up with it, and choked it.

8 And other fell into ground good and fair, and sprang up, and made fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these (words), he cried, Whoever hath ears to hear, let him hear.

9 And his disciples asked him, What is (the signification of) this parable?

10 But he said to them, To you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Aloha; but to those who are the rest in similitudes is it spoken; that while seeing they may not see, and while hearing they may not understand.

11 But this is the parable: The seed is the word of Aloha.

12 Now they by the road-side are they who hear the word; and the adversary cometh, and taketh up the word from their hearts, that they should not believe and be saved.

13 But those who fell upon the rock are those who, when they hear, with joy receive the word; yet root they have not, but for a time is their faith, and in the time of temptation they are offended.

14 But that which fell among thorns are they who hear the word, and by the cares, and by the riches, and by the lusts of the world, they are choked, and fruit they give not.

15 But that which (was) in good ground are they who, with hearts humble and good, hear the word and retain, and give fruits with perseverance.

16 NO man lighteth a lamp, and covereth it with a measure, or setteth it under a bed; but setteth it upon a candlestick, that every one who cometh in may see the light of it.

17 For there is nothing hidden which shall not be revealed, and nothing secret that shall not be known and come into openness.

18 Take heed how you hear: for unto him who hath, it shall be given; and from him who hath not, that also which he thinketh that he hath shall be taken from him.

19 Now came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not speak with him on account of the assembly.

20 And they said to him, Thy mother and thy brethren are standing without, desiring to see thee.

21 But he answered and said to them, These are my mother and my brethren, they who hear the word of Aloha, and do it.

22 NOW it was on one of the days that Jeshu ascended and sat in a vessel and his disciples: and he said to them, Let us pass to the other side of the water.

23 But as they went, Jeshu himself slept. And there became a storm of wind on the water, and nigh was the vessel to be swallowed up.

24 And they approached (and) awoke him, saying to him, Our master, our master, we perish! But he arose and rebuked the winds and the waves of the sea; and they quieted, and there was a calm.

25 And he said to them, Where is your faith? But they, afraid, wondered, saying one with another, Who is this that also commandeth the winds, and to whom the waves and the sea are obedient?

26 And they went forward and came to the country of the Godroyee, which is over against Galila.

27 And when he had gone forth to the land, there met him a certain man from the city, who had a devil in him a great time, and (who) wore no clothes, and in a house dwelt not, but in the place of the buried.

28 But when he saw Jeshu, he cried out, and fell before him, and said in a high voice, What to us and to thee, Jeshu, son of Aloha Marima? I beseech of thee, torment me not.

29 For Jeshu commanded the unclean spirit to come forth from the man. For long was the time that he had been enthralled of him; and (when) bound with chains, and kept with fetters, he had burst asunder his bonds, and had been driven by the demon into the waste.

30 And Jeshu demanded of him, What is thy name? He saith to him, Legion: because that many devils had entered into him.

31 And they besought from him that he would not cast them out to go into the abyss.

32 Now there was there a great herd of many swine which fed on the hill: and they besought from him that he would permit them to enter into the swine. And he permitted them.

33 And the demons went forth from the man, and entered into the swine; and the whole herd went directly to the precipice, and plunged into the waters, and were suffocated.

34 And when the herdmen saw the thing that was done, they fled, and made known in the city and in the villages.

35 And the men went forth to see the thing which was done. And they came to Jeshu, and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, clothed, sober, and sitting at the feet of Jeshu. And they feared.

36 And they who had seen it showed to them how the man of the demon had been healed.

37 And the whole multitude of the Godroyee besought of Jeshu that he would go from them, because great fear had taken them. And he, Jeshu, ascended the ship, and returned from them.

38 But he, the man from whom had gone forth the demons, besought of him that he might be with him. But Jeshu dismissed him, and said to him,

39 Return to thine house, and show what Aloha hath done for thee. And he went and proclaimed in every city what Jeshu had done for him.

40 WHEN Jeshu returned, a great multitude received him: for they were all expecting him.

41 And a certain man whose name was Jorush, head of the synagogue, fell before the feet of Jeshu, and besought him to enter into his house;

42 for he had an only daughter, as a daughter of twelve years, and she was nigh unto death. And as Jeshu went with him, the great multitude pressed him.

43 And a certain woman whose blood had gushed forth twelve years, she who among the physicians had spent all her substance, but could not be healed by any one,

44 approached him from behind, and touched the border of his garment, and immediately stood the flowing of her blood.

45 And Jeshu said, Who touched me? And when all denied, Shemun Kipha and those with him said, Raban, the crowd straiteneth and presseth thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

46 But he said, Some one hath touched me, for I know that power hath gone forth from me.

47 And she, the woman, when she saw that she was not hid, came trembling and fell (and) worshipped him. And she told before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how at once she had been healed.

48 But he, Jeshu, said to her, Be comforted, my daughter: thy faith hath saved thee, go in peace.

49 And while he was speaking, there came a man from the chief of the synagogue and said to him, Thy daughter is dead, weary not the Malphona.

50 But Jeshu heard, and said to the father of the damsel, Fear not, only believe, and she lives!

51 But Jeshu came to the house, and he suffered no man to enter with him, save Shemun, and Jakub, and Juchanon, and the father of the damsel, and her mother.

52 And they were all weeping and wailing for her; but Jeshu said, Weep not, for she is not dead, but asleep.

53 And they laughed at him, for they knew that she was dead.

54 But he put every man forth without. And he took her by the hand, and called and said, Damsel, arise.

55 And her spirit returned, and she arose. And he directed that they should give her to eat.

56 And her parents were astonished; but he cautioned them that no man they should tell what he had done.
