And forthwith Jesus
gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the

5:17And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the
devil prayed him that he might be with him.

friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and
hath had compassion on thee.

5:29And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in

But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came

(5:40) "And they laughed him to scorn."
