WHEN EVIL INJURES
Mark 5:1-9 (NIV)
The Healing of a Demon-possessed Man
1-They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.
2-When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him.
3-This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain.
4-For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.
5-Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
6-When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.
7-He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won't torture me!"
8-For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!"
9-Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."
