||And when he had completed all his words in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum.
||Now the servant of a certain centurion was dying, due to an illness. And he was very dear to him.
||And when he had heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him, petitioning him, so that he would come and heal his servant.
||And when they had come to Jesus, they petitioned him anxiously, saying to him: “He is worthy that you should provide this to him.
||For he loves our nation, and he has built a synagogue for us.”
||Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying: “Lord, do not trouble yourself. For I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof.
||Because of this, I also did not consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
||For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
||And upon hearing this, Jesus was amazed. And turning to the multitude following him, he said, “Amen I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith.”
||And those who had been sent, upon returning to the house, found that the servant, who had been sick, was now healthy.
