||And it happened that, while he was in a certain city, behold, there was a man full of leprosy who, upon seeing Jesus and falling to his face, petitioned him, saying: “Lord, if you are willing, you are able to cleanse me.”
||And extending his hand, he touched him, saying: “I am willing. Be cleansed.” And at once, the leprosy departed from him.
||And he instructed him that he should tell no one, “But go, show yourself to the priest, and make the offering for your cleansing, just as Moses has commanded, as a testimony for them.”
||Yet word of him traveled around all the more. And great crowds came together, so that they might listen and be cured by him from their infirmities.
||And he withdrew into the desert and prayed.
