Heals a leper

Mark 1:40–45  |  Luke 5:12–15  |  Matt 8:1–4

When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And, behold, it came to pass, when he was in certain city, behold there came a man full of leprosy(a) to him, who seeing Jesus fell on his face, beseeching(b) him, and kneeling down to him(c), and saying unto him, Lord If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus(d), moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith[2] unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately his(f) leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; And Jesus saith unto him, See thou say(g) nothing to any(h) man: but go thy way, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing the gift(i) according as(j) Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, so much(k) the more went there fame abroad of  him that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and great multitudes(l) came to him from every quarter to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.

(a) leper  (b) and besought  (c) worshipped him  (d) he  (f) the  (g) to tell  (h) no (i) those things  (j) which / that  (k) insomuch  (l) they  [2] saying

  1. The phrase “and saith” (in Mark) instead of “saying” (in Luke) implies that Jesus spoke after having touched him. Mark also adds that the leprosy departed as soon as Jesus had spoken to him, not as soon as Jesus touched him.
