ContextJesus Heals a Boy with An Evil Spirit
14And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. 15And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 16And he asked the scribes, What question you with them? 17And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought to you my son, which has a dumb spirit; 18And wherever he takes him, he tears him: and he foams, and gnashes with his teeth, and pines away: and I spoke to your disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. 19He answers him, and said, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him to me. 20And they brought him to him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came to him? And he said, Of a child. 22And often it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if you can do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. 23Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes. 24And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help you my unbelief. 25When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying to him, You dumb and deaf spirit, I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; so that many said, He is dead. 27But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 28And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 29And he said to them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
