Main point summary
When Jesus and His disciples cross the sea, they encounter a man with a legion demons. Jesus commands the demons to leave the man, and they request permission to go into a herd of about 2,000 pigs feeding nearby. Jesus grants them their request, and, as they enter the pigs, the pigs rush into the sea and are drowned. The herdsmen run to the city and report what happened. The townspeople come to Jesus and see the man who had the demons restored. They are afraid and ask Jesus to leave. As Jesus is leaving, the man asks Jesus to let him go with Him, but Jesus instead sends him to his hometown to report what God has done for him. The man does this, and the everyone is amazed.

“What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God?
I implore You by God, do not torment me!”
For He had been saying to him,
“Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”
And He was asking him,
“What is your name?”
And he said to Him,
“My name is Legion;
for we are many.”
And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.
Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain.
The demons implored Him, saying,
“Send us into the swine
so that we may enter them.”
Jesus gave them permission.
And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine;
and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them;
and they were drowned in the sea.
The Reaction
Their herdsmen ran away
and reported it in the city and in the country.
And the people came to see what it was that had happened.
They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon- possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the “legion”;
and they became frightened.
Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon- possessed man, and all about the swine.
And they began to implore Him to leave their region.
As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon- possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him.
And He did not let him,
but He said to him,
“Go home to your people
and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.”
And he went away
and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him;
and everyone was amazed.

Phrase Greek
Mark 5:1-20
Καὶ ἦλθον εἰς τὸ πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης εἰς τὴν χώραν τῶν Γερασηνῶν.
They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gerasenes.
Und sie kamen ans andere Ufer des Meeres in die Landschaft der Gadarener.
καὶ ἐξελθόντος αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ πλοίου εὐθὺς ὑπήντησεν αὐτῷ ἐκ τῶν μνημείων ἄνθρωπος ἐν πνεύματι ἀκαθάρτῳ,
When He got out of the boat, immediately a man from the tombs with an unclean spirit met Him,
Und als er aus dem Schiffe gestiegen war, lief ihm alsbald aus den Gräbern ein Mensch mit einem unreinen Geist entgegen,
ὃς τὴν κατοίκησιν εἶχεν ἐν τοῖς μνήμασιν,
and he had his dwelling among the tombs. And no one was able to bind him anymore, even with a chain;
der seine Wohnung in den Gräbern hatte. Und niemand konnte ihn binden, auch nicht mit Ketten;
καὶ οὐδὲ ἁλύσει οὐκέτι οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο αὐτὸν δῆσαι
διὰ τὸ αὐτὸν πολλάκις πέδαις καὶ ἁλύσεσι δεδέσθαι
because he had often been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him and the shackles broken in pieces, and no one was strong enough to subdue him.
denn schon oft war er mit Fußfesseln und Ketten gebunden worden, aber die Ketten wurden von ihm zerrissen und die Fußfesseln zerrieben; und niemand vermochte ihn zu bändigen.
καὶ διεσπάσθαι ὑπ’ αὐτοῦ τὰς ἁλύσεις
καὶ τὰς πέδας συντετρῖφθαι,
καὶ οὐδεὶς ἴσχυεν αὐτὸν δαμάσαι·
καὶ διὰ παντὸς νυκτὸς καὶ ἡμέρας ἐν τοῖς μνήμασιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ἦν κράζων
Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains, and gashing himself with stones.
Und er war allezeit, Tag und Nacht, in den Gräbern und auf den Bergen, schrie und schlug sich selbst mit Steinen.
καὶ κατακόπτων ἑαυτὸν λίθοις.
καὶ ἰδὼν τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἀπὸ μακρόθεν ἔδραμεν
Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;
Als er aber Jesus von ferne sah, lief er und warf sich vor ihm nieder,
καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτόν,
καὶ κράξας φωνῇ μεγάλῃ λέγει·
and shouting with a loud voice, he said, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!”
schrie mit lauter Stimme und sprach: Jesus, du Sohn Gottes, des Höchsten, was habe ich mit dir zu schaffen? Ich beschwöre dich bei Gott, daß du mich nicht peinigest!
Τί ἐμοὶ καὶ σοί, Ἰησοῦ υἱὲ τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ὑψίστου;
ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεόν,
μή με βασανίσῃς.
ἔλεγεν γὰρ αὐτῷ·
For He had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”
Denn er sprach zu ihm: Fahre aus, du unreiner Geist, aus dem Menschen!
Ἔξελθε τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἀκάθαρτον ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.
καὶ ἐπηρώτα αὐτόν·
And He was asking him, “What is your name?” And he said to Him, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”
Und er fragte ihn: Wie heißest du? Und er antwortete und sprach: Legion heiße ich; denn wir sind viele!
Τί ὄνομά σοι;
καὶ λέγει αὐτῷ·
Λεγιὼν ὄνομά μοι,
ὅτι πολλοί ἐσμεν·
καὶ παρεκάλει αὐτὸν πολλὰ
And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.
Und er bat ihn sehr, sie nicht aus dem Lande zu verweisen.
ἵνα μὴ αὐτὰ ἀποστείλῃ ἔξω τῆς χώρας.
ἦν δὲ ἐκεῖ πρὸς τῷ ὄρει ἀγέλη χοίρων μεγάλη βοσκομένη·
Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain.
Es war aber dort an den Bergen eine große Herde Schweine zur Weide.
καὶ παρεκάλεσαν αὐτὸν λέγοντες·
The demons implored Him, saying, “Send us into the swine so that we may enter them.”
Und die Dämonen baten ihn und sprachen: Schicke uns in die Schweine, damit wir in sie fahren!
Πέμψον ἡμᾶς εἰς τοὺς χοίρους,
ἵνα εἰς αὐτοὺς εἰσέλθωμεν.
καὶ ἐπέτρεψεν αὐτοῖς.
Jesus gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.
Und alsbald erlaubte es ihnen Jesus. Und die unreinen Geister fuhren aus und fuhren in die Schweine. Und die Herde stürzte sich den Abhang hinunter in das Meer (ihrer waren etwa zweitausend), und sie ertranken im Meer.
καὶ ἐξελθόντα τὰ πνεύματα τὰ ἀκάθαρτα εἰσῆλθον εἰς τοὺς χοίρους,
καὶ ὥρμησεν ἡ ἀγέλη κατὰ τοῦ κρημνοῦ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν,
ὡς δισχίλιοι,
καὶ ἐπνίγοντο ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ.
Καὶ οἱ βόσκοντες αὐτοὺς ἔφυγον
Their herdsmen ran away and reported it in the city and in the country. And the people came to see what it was that had happened.
Die Hirten aber flohen und verkündigten es in der Stadt und auf dem Lande. Und sie gingen hinaus zu sehen, was da geschehen war.
καὶ ἀπήγγειλαν εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ εἰς τοὺς ἀγρούς·
καὶ ἦλθον ἰδεῖν
τί ἐστιν τὸ γεγονός.
καὶ ἔρχονται πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν,
They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon- possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the “legion”; and they became frightened.
Und sie kommen zu Jesus und sehen den Besessenen, der die Legion gehabt hatte, dasitzen, bekleidet und vernünftig; und sie fürchteten sich.
καὶ θεωροῦσιν τὸν δαιμονιζόμενον καθήμενον ἱματισμένον καὶ σωφρονοῦντα, τὸν ἐσχηκότα τὸν λεγιῶνα,
καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν.
καὶ διηγήσαντο αὐτοῖς οἱ ἰδόντες
Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon- possessed man, and all about the swine.
Und die es gesehen hatten, erzählten ihnen, wie es mit dem Besessenen zugegangen war, und das von den Schweinen.
πῶς ἐγένετο τῷ δαιμονιζομένῳ
καὶ περὶ τῶν χοίρων.
καὶ ἤρξαντο παρακαλεῖν αὐτὸν
And they began to implore Him to leave their region.
Da fingen sie an, ihn zu bitten, er möge aus ihren Grenzen weichen.
ἀπελθεῖν ἀπὸ τῶν ὁρίων αὐτῶν.
καὶ ἐμβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πλοῖον παρεκάλει αὐτὸν ὁ δαιμονισθεὶς
As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon- possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him.
Und als er in das Schiff trat, bat ihn der besessen Gewesene, daß er bei ihm bleiben dürfe.
ἵνα μετ’ αὐτοῦ ᾖ.
καὶ οὐκ ἀφῆκεν αὐτόν,
And He did not let him, but He said to him, “Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you.”
Aber Jesus ließ es ihm nicht zu, sondern sprach zu ihm: Gehe in dein Haus, zu den Deinen, und verkündige ihnen, wie Großes der Herr an dir getan und wie er sich deiner erbarmt hat!
ἀλλὰ λέγει αὐτῷ·
Ὕπαγε εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου πρὸς τοὺς σούς,
καὶ ἀπάγγειλον αὐτοῖς
ὅσα ὁ κύριός σοι πεποίηκεν
καὶ ἠλέησέν σε.
καὶ ἀπῆλθεν
And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed.
Und er ging hin und fing an im Gebiet der Zehn- Städte zu verkündigen, wie Großes Jesus an ihm getan habe; und jedermann verwunderte sich.
καὶ ἤρξατο κηρύσσειν ἐν τῇ Δεκαπόλει
ὅσα ἐποίησεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς,
καὶ πάντες ἐθαύμαζον.
Καὶ ἦλθον εἰς τὸ πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης εἰς τὴν χώραν τῶν Γερασηνῶν.
καὶ ἐξελθόντος αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ πλοίου εὐθὺς ὑπήντησεν αὐτῷ ἐκ τῶν μνημείων ἄνθρωπος ἐν πνεύματι ἀκαθάρτῳ,
ὃς τὴν κατοίκησιν εἶχεν ἐν τοῖς μνήμασιν, καὶ οὐδὲ ἁλύσει οὐκέτι οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο αὐτὸν δῆσαι
διὰ τὸ αὐτὸν πολλάκις πέδαις καὶ ἁλύσεσι δεδέσθαι καὶ διεσπάσθαι ὑπ’ αὐτοῦ τὰς ἁλύσεις καὶ τὰς πέδας συντετρῖφθαι, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἴσχυεν αὐτὸν δαμάσαι·
καὶ διὰ παντὸς νυκτὸς καὶ ἡμέρας ἐν τοῖς μνήμασιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ἦν κράζων καὶ κατακόπτων ἑαυτὸν λίθοις.
καὶ ἰδὼν τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἀπὸ μακρόθεν ἔδραμεν καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτόν,
καὶ κράξας φωνῇ μεγάλῃ λέγει· Τί ἐμοὶ καὶ σοί, Ἰησοῦ υἱὲ τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ὑψίστου; ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεόν, μή με βασανίσῃς.
ἔλεγεν γὰρ αὐτῷ· Ἔξελθε τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἀκάθαρτον ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.
καὶ ἐπηρώτα αὐτόν· Τί ὄνομά σοι; καὶ λέγει αὐτῷ· Λεγιὼν ὄνομά μοι, ὅτι πολλοί ἐσμεν·
καὶ παρεκάλει αὐτὸν πολλὰ ἵνα μὴ αὐτὰ ἀποστείλῃ ἔξω τῆς χώρας.
ἦν δὲ ἐκεῖ πρὸς τῷ ὄρει ἀγέλη χοίρων μεγάλη βοσκομένη·
καὶ παρεκάλεσαν αὐτὸν λέγοντες· Πέμψον ἡμᾶς εἰς τοὺς χοίρους, ἵνα εἰς αὐτοὺς εἰσέλθωμεν.
καὶ ἐπέτρεψεν αὐτοῖς. καὶ ἐξελθόντα τὰ πνεύματα τὰ ἀκάθαρτα εἰσῆλθον εἰς τοὺς χοίρους, καὶ ὥρμησεν ἡ ἀγέλη κατὰ τοῦ κρημνοῦ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν, ὡς δισχίλιοι, καὶ ἐπνίγοντο ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ.
Καὶ οἱ βόσκοντες αὐτοὺς ἔφυγον καὶ ἀπήγγειλαν εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ εἰς τοὺς ἀγρούς· καὶ ἦλθον ἰδεῖν τί ἐστιν τὸ γεγονός.
καὶ ἔρχονται πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν, καὶ θεωροῦσιν τὸν δαιμονιζόμενον καθήμενον ἱματισμένον καὶ σωφρονοῦντα, τὸν ἐσχηκότα τὸν λεγιῶνα, καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν.
καὶ διηγήσαντο αὐτοῖς οἱ ἰδόντες πῶς ἐγένετο τῷ δαιμονιζομένῳ καὶ περὶ τῶν χοίρων.
καὶ ἤρξαντο παρακαλεῖν αὐτὸν ἀπελθεῖν ἀπὸ τῶν ὁρίων αὐτῶν.
καὶ ἐμβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πλοῖον παρεκάλει αὐτὸν ὁ δαιμονισθεὶς ἵνα μετ’ αὐτοῦ ᾖ.
καὶ οὐκ ἀφῆκεν αὐτόν, ἀλλὰ λέγει αὐτῷ· Ὕπαγε εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου πρὸς τοὺς σούς, καὶ ἀπάγγειλον αὐτοῖς ὅσα ὁ κύριός σοι πεποίηκεν καὶ ἠλέησέν σε.
G1648+1
καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ ἤρξατο κηρύσσειν ἐν τῇ Δεκαπόλει ὅσα ἐποίησεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς, καὶ πάντες ἐθαύμαζον.
