The Boy Possessed by Devils

Mark Chapter 9


9:14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.    
9:15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.    
9:16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?  
9:17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;    
9:18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.  
9:19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.    
9:20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.    
9:21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.    
9:22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.    
9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.    
9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.    
9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.    
9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.    
9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.    
9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?    
9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
