Day 33

Mark 5


5:1 They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 

5:2 When he had come out of the boat, immediately a man with an unclean spirit met him out of the tombs. 

5:3 He lived in the tombs. Nobody could bind him any more, not even with chains, 

5:4 because he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him, and the fetters broken in pieces. Nobody had the strength to tame him. 

5:5 Always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out, and cutting himself with stones. 

5:6 When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed down to him, 

5:7 and crying out with a loud voice, he said, "What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, don't torment me." 

5:8 For he said to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!" 

5:9 He asked him, "What is your name?" He said to him, "My name is Legion, for we are many." 

5:10 He begged him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 

5:11 Now on the mountainside there was a great herd of pigs feeding. 

5:12 All the demons begged him, saying, "Send us into the pigs, that we may enter into them." 

5:13 At once Jesus gave them permission. The unclean spirits came out and entered into the pigs. The herd of about two thousand rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and they were drowned in the sea. 

5:14 Those who fed them fled, and told it in the city and in the country. The people came to see what it was that had happened. 

5:15 They came to Jesus, and saw him who had been possessed by demons sitting, clothed, and in his right mind, even him who had the legion; and they were afraid. 

5:16 Those who saw it declared to them how it happened to him who was possessed by demons, and about the pigs. 

5:17 They began to beg him to depart from their region. 

5:18 As he was entering into the boat, he who had been possessed by demons begged him that he might be with him. 

5:19 He didn't allow him, but said to him, "Go to your house, to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how he had mercy on you." 

5:20 He went his way, and began to proclaim in Decapolis how Jesus had done great things for him, and everyone marveled. 

5:21 When Jesus had crossed back over in the boat to the other side, a great multitude was gathered to him; and he was by the sea. 

5:22 Behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, came; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 

5:23 and begged him much, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Please come and lay your hands on her, that she may be made healthy, and live." 

5:24 He went with him, and a great multitude followed him, and they pressed upon him on all sides. 

5:25 A certain woman, who had an issue of blood for twelve years, 

5:26 and had suffered many things by many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better, but rather grew worse, 

5:27 having heard the things concerning Jesus, came up behind him in the crowd, and touched his clothes. 

5:28 For she said, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be made well." 

5:29 Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction. 

5:30 Immediately Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd, and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" 

5:31 His disciples said to him, "You see the multitude pressing against you, and you say, 'Who touched me?'" 

5:32 He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 

5:33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 

5:34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be cured of your disease." 

5:35 While he was still speaking, people came from the synagogue ruler's house saying, "Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher any more?" 

5:36 But Jesus, when he heard the message spoken, immediately said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Don't be afraid, only believe." 

5:37 He allowed no one to follow him, except Peter, James, and John the brother of James. 

5:38 He came to the synagogue ruler's house, and he saw an uproar, weeping, and great wailing. 

5:39 When he had entered in, he said to them, "Why do you make an uproar and weep? The child is not dead, but is asleep." 

5:40 They ridiculed him. But he, having put them all out, took the father of the child, her mother, and those who were with him, and went in where the child was lying. 

5:41 Taking the child by the hand, he said to her, "Talitha cumi!" which means, being interpreted, "Girl, I tell you, get up!" 

5:42 Immediately the girl rose up and walked, for she was twelve years old. They were amazed with great amazement. 

5:43 He strictly ordered them that no one should know this, and commanded that something should be given to her to eat. 


 

2 Corinthians 5


5:1 For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. 

5:2 For most certainly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven; 

5:3 if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked. 

5:4 For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 

5:5 Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit. 

5:6 Therefore, we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord; 

5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight. 

5:8 We are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord. 

5:9 Therefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well pleasing to him. 

5:10 For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 

5:11 Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are revealed to God; and I hope that we are revealed also in your consciences. 

5:12 For we are not commending ourselves to you again, but speak as giving you occasion of boasting on our behalf, that you may have something to answer those who boast in appearance, and not in heart. 

5:13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God. Or if we are of sober mind, it is for you. 

5:14 For the love of Christ constrains us; because we judge thus, that one died for all, therefore all died. 

5:15 He died for all, that those who live should no longer live to themselves, but to him who for their sakes died and rose again. 

5:16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more. 

5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new. 

5:18 But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation; 

5:19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses, and having committed to us the word of reconciliation. 

5:20 We are therefore ambassadors on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 

5:21 For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 

 


2 Corinthians 6


6:1 Working together, we entreat also that you not receive the grace of God in vain, 

6:2 for he says, "At an acceptable time I listened to you, in a day of salvation I helped you."{Isaiah 49:8} Behold, now is the acceptable time. Behold, now is the day of salvation. 

6:3 We give no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our service may not be blamed, 

6:4 but in everything commending ourselves, as servants of God, in great endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, 

6:5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 

6:6 in pureness, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in sincere love, 

6:7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 

6:8 by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; 

6:9 as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and not killed; 

6:10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 

6:11 Our mouth is open to you, Corinthians. Our heart is enlarged. 

6:12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections. 

6:13 Now in return, I speak as to my children, you also be open wide. 

6:14 Don't be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

6:15 What agreement has Christ with Belial? Or what portion has a believer with an unbeliever? 

6:16 What agreement has a temple of God with idols? For you are a temple of the living God. Even as God said, "I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they will be my people."{Leviticus 26:12; Jeremiah 32:38; Ezekiel 37:27} 

6:17 Therefore, "'Come out from among them, and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you.{Isaiah 52:11; Ezekiel 20:34,41} 

6:18 I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,' says the Lord Almighty."{2 Samuel 7:14; 7:8}
