Bible: Luke 5:12-16

Healing a Leper

5:12 While 1  Jesus 2  was in one of the towns, 3  a man came 4  to him who was covered with 5  leprosy. 6  When 7  he saw Jesus, he bowed down with his face to the ground 8  and begged him, 9 Lord, if 10  you are willing, you can make me clean.” 5:13 So 11  he stretched out his hand and touched 12  him, saying, “I am willing. Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him. 5:14 Then 13  he ordered the man 14  to tell no one, 15  but commanded him, 16  “Go 17  and show yourself to a priest, and bring the offering 18  for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, 19  as a testimony to them.” 20  5:15 But the news about him spread even more, 21  and large crowds were gathering together to hear him 22  and to be healed of their illnesses. 5:16 Yet Jesus himself 23  frequently withdrew 24  to the wilderness 25  and prayed.
