taught them as one having authority, and not as their

scribes. 8 And when he was come down from the mountain, 2 great multitudes followed him. And behold, there came

to him a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, 3 if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying,

I will; be thou made clean. And straightway his 4 leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus saith unto him, See
