||And when he had arrived across the sea, into the region of the Gerasenes, he was met by two who had demons, who were so exceedingly savage, as they went out from among the tombs, that no one was able to cross by that way.
||And behold, they cried out, saying: “What are we to you, O Jesus, the Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?”
||Now there was, not far from them, a herd of many swine feeding.
||Then the demons petitioned him, saying: “If you cast us from here, send us into the herd of swine.”
||And he said to them, “Go.” And they, going out, went into the swine. And behold, the entire herd suddenly rushed along a steep place into the sea. And they died in the waters.
||Then the shepherds fled, and arriving in the city, they reported on all this, and on those who had had the demons.
||And behold, the entire city went out to meet Jesus. And having seen him, they petitioned him, so that he would cross from their borders.
