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.
