10. Curing the Dying One
  1. After He completed all His words in the hearing of the people, He entered into Capernaum.
  2. And a certain centurions slave, who was highly valued by him, was ill and about to die.
  3. And when he heard about Jesus, he sent to Him some elders of the Jews, requesting that He would come and completely heal his slave.
  4. And when they came to Jesus, they entreated Him earnestly, saying, He is worthy of Your granting this to him,
  5. For he loves our nation, and he himself built the synagogue for us.
  6. And Jesus went with them. But already, when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not fit for You to enter under my roof;
  7. Therefore, I did not count even myself worthy to come to You. But speak a word, and let my servant be healed.
  8. For I also am a man set under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my slave, Do this, and he does it.
  9. And when Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turning to the crowd following Him, He said, I say to you, Not even in Israel have I found such great faith.
  10. And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.
11. Showing Pity to the Weeping Widow by Raising Up Her Only Son
  1. And soon afterward He went into a city called Nain, and His disciples went with Him, as well as a large crowd.
  2. And as He came near the gate of the city, behold, one who had died was being carried out, an only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a considerable crowd from the city was with her.
  3. And when the Lord saw her, He was moved with compassion for her and said to her, Do not weep.
  4. And He came near and touched the bier, and those carrying it stood still. And He said, Young man, to you I say, Arise.
  5. And the dead man sat up and began to speak. And He gave him to his mother.
  6. And fear took hold of all, and they glorified God, saying, A great prophet has been raised up among us, and, God has visited His people!
  7. And this report concerning Him went out in the whole of Judea and in all the surrounding region.
