Mark 5:1-15 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
Mark 51And they came over the strait of the sea into the country of the Gerasens.
2And as he went out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the monuments a man with an unclean spirit,
3Who had his dwelling in the tombs, and no man now could bind him, not even with chains.
4For having been often bound with fetters and chains, he had burst the chains, and broken the fetters in pieces, and no one could tame him.
5And he was always day and night in the monuments and in the mountains, crying and cutting himself with stones.
6And seeing Jesus afar off, he ran and adored him.
7And crying with a loud voice, he said: What have I to do with thee, Jesus the Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God that thou torment me not.
8For he said unto him: Go out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
9And he asked him: What is thy name? And he saith to him: My name is Legion, for we are many.
10And he besought him much, that he would not drive him away out of the country.
11And there was there near the mountain a great herd of swine, feeding.
12And the spirits besought him, saying: Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
13And Jesus immediately gave them leave. And the unclean spirits going out, entered into the swine: and the herd with great violence was carried headlong into the sea, being about two thousand, and were stifled in the sea.
14And they that fed them fled, and told it in the city and in the fields. And they went out to see what was done:
15And they came to Jesus, and they see him that was troubled with the devil, sitting, clothed, and well in his wits, and they were afraid.
