Bible: Luke 8:27-33
8:27 As 1 Jesus 2 stepped ashore, 3 a certain man from the town 4 met him who was possessed by demons. 5 For a long time this man 6 had worn no clothes and had not lived in a house, but among 7 the tombs. 8:28 When he saw 8 Jesus, he cried out, fell 9 down before him, and shouted with a loud voice, “Leave me alone, 10 Jesus, Son of the Most High 11 God! I beg you, do not torment 12 me!” 8:29 For Jesus 13 had started commanding 14 the evil 15 spirit to come out of the man. (For it had seized him many times, so 16 he would be bound with chains and shackles 17 and kept under guard. But 18 he would break the restraints and be driven by the demon into deserted 19 places.) 20 8:30 Jesus then 21 asked him, “What is your name?” He 22 said, “Legion,” 23 because many demons had entered him. 8:31 And they began to beg 24 him not to order 25 them to depart into the abyss. 26 8:32 Now a large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, 27 and the demonic spirits 28 begged Jesus 29 to let them go into them. He gave them permission. 30 8:33 So 31 the demons came out of the man and went into the pigs, and the herd of pigs 32 rushed down the steep slope into the lake and drowned.
