Matthew 8:14-34 In The King James Version and AWPR (Alternate with Word Pictures and Reiterations) Version

Matthew 8:14-34

King James Version (KJV) in aqua Blue
Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Version (AWPR) in Yellow
My Comments are in Green

14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.    (KJV)     

14)    And having come forth (so as to make a public appearance)
          into the house of Peter,
          He beheld and saw the mother in law of him  [Peter]
          having been cast, brought and carried,
          and feverish (with a fiery sickness).

15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.    (KJV)  

15)    And He touched and fastened the hand of her,
         and the fever / the fiery sickness   let go and left her.

         And she sat upright and arose (as if from sleep)

         and served and attended to them.

16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:    (KJV)    

16)   Then (early)  evening  
        [ sometime in the hours of 3 p.m. to the first three stars of 
          sunset, the time from which Shkias HaChamah begins
          and ends,  and the dark evening hours of Tzais HaKochavim 
          afterward  begins]
         having come they carried - bore up - brought up alongside
         to Him   many violent demon-possessed (ones):
         and He cast out - threw out   the spirits
         by an intelligent word or utterance.

        And all those having - holding - possessing and continuing to
        possess    hurtful and rotting evil  -  hurtful and rotting illness
        He ministered to    and healed - cured.  

17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.    (KJV)    

17)    So in what manner that may be performed fully 
         and fulfilled that statement spoken (or foretold)
         through Isaiah the prophet,
         laying down definite words saying,
              'He, the weakening and strength robbing illness / sickness
               of us accepted, received, and (forcefully) took away;
               and the sicknesses - diseases He took up and bore
               [as in His hands / as upon His wrists as those
                 which bore up and then were pierced upon the Cross
                 for us].'

18 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.    (KJV)   

18)    Then Jesus / Yeshua  seeing and beholding 
          [and contemplating upon the]
          many crowds round about HIm,
          (sternly) instructed - set in motion by order or command
          to withdraw and depart - to go away (from a public appearance)
          into the beyond - into the other side.

19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.    (KJV)    

19)   And publicly coming forth up alongside,
         one Scribe said to Him,
              'Teacher, I will follow and accompany together 
               (in the way) with You  wheresoever and in what place,
               if (possible), You 
               withdraw and depart - go away (from the public).'

20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.    (KJV)     

20)   And Jesus / Yeshua   lays down definite words and says to him,
              'The foxes have - hold - possess and continue to possess
               holes and burrows,
               and the flying winged (ones) - and the birds and flying fowl
               the lodging and resting places of pitched nests to dwell in 
               and remain;
               then,  the Son of Man certainly does not 
               have - hold - possess nor continue to possess
               where or in what place He may recline or lay down the head.'

21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.     (KJV)    

21)   Then another, but different (kind) of the disciples of Him
         said to Him,
              'Lord, turn upon me first -  Lord, allow me first
               to withdraw - depart - go away
               and perform funeral rites for the father of me.'

22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.    (KJV)    

22)     Then Jesus said to him, 
                'Follow along and accompany Me (in the way),
                 and dismiss - send away - banish     
                 the dead      [the untrusting - the unbelieving]
                 to perform funeral rites (and bury)
                 the dead - the corpse   themselves.'

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.    (KJV)

23)   And having entered and boarded into 
          the boat - the sailing vessel

         [ likely, this vessel was approximately the same size as that 
            excavated in 1986 in the Sea of Galilee:
            27 feet long, 7 feet 6 inches wide, 4 feet 4 inches high
            which radiocarbon dates to within a margin of error
            of 40 B.C. to 40 A.D.  --  along with pottery known to have 
            been  in use only from that same time period as well --
            as a boat that Jesus and His disciples could have actually 
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_of_Galilee_Boat     ]

         the disciples - pupils - learners  of Him, 
         followed along and accompanied Him  (in the way).


24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.    (KJV) 

24)    And behold, look and see:
          a great earthquake   came into being - occurred - happened
          in the (enclosed) Sea so that the    boat - sailing vessel  
          was enveloped and covered over   under - beneath - by 
          the waves.

          He   [Jesus / Yeshua]  then was sleeping deeply.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.    (KJV)    

25)   And having come forth up alongside, 
         the disciples - pupils - learners  of Him  set Him upright
         [into a sitting position]
         and aroused Him - and awoke Him,
         laying down definite words, saying, 
             'Lord, save us [from dying]!
              We are wholly being destroyed - We are perishing!'

26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.     (KJV)

26)    And He lays down definite words and says to them,
              'Wherefore - For what cause - Why
               you are - are you     fearful cowards,
               Little Faiths - Few and Small In Trusting Beliefs?'

          Then, at that time, arising  (and standing)  upright,
          He admonished and corrected - He (with authority and 
          justification) rebuked 
          the (violent) wind and (enclosed) Sea.

          And a great calm, to a state of (sudden and) near stillness -
          And a great tranquility   came into being.


27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!    (KJV)    

27)   Then the men were struck with wondering admiration
         and astonishment - Then the men marvelled,
         laying down definite words, saying, 
             'From what kind of soil is this  [man],
              that even the (violent) winds and the 
              (enclosed) Sea intently listen to and obey Him?'

28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.     (KJV)    

28)    And having come forth (so as to make a public appearance)
          into the beyond - into the other side,
          into the country - region - district - territory
          of the Gergasenes,
          two violently demon possessed (ones)   --
               super exceedingly violent - grievously super wild and super fierce
               so that anyone was not physically strong (enough) or able
               to come forth near or in the vicinity of
               and pass through that one there  way - road - path   --
          coming forth out of 
          the memorial tombs - the memorial sepulchers 
         [in this instance, likely implies "memorial caves" of some sort]
         met - - encountered Him (from) beneath.

           Jesus being at a higher elevation, and these two demoniacs
           stopping short in sudden preternatural fear at a lower 
           elevation.  This indicates that the tombs either like cellars
           with stairs or ramps to access, or that the path was on an incline
           and in a constricted place  that could be
           blocked by just two people, 
           or less than 10 - 12 feet wide,  just above where this incident 
           and encounter with Jesus took place.  In verse 30, it is told that 
           it must also have a line of sight of a long way off area where there 
           was a cliff or precipice over-looking the Sea of Galilee where 
           hogs (generally weighing in the range of 100 - 500 plus pounds)
           could be run off to drown and not beach and hot foot it ashore to 
           safety.       -- Brianroy ]


29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?    (KJV)  

29)   And behold, look and see:
         they cried out (lamentingly) in a hoarse voice
         laying down definite words, saying,
             'What to us and to You,  Jesus / Yeshua, Son of GOD?
              Come you forth to appear publicly
              before - in advance - prior to    
              Time - (the) set or appointed Time
              to test and examine us by torture and torment?'

30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.   (KJV)     

30)    Then was a long way off - Then was at a distance far off
           from them   a herd of many hogs  
           grazing (and being tended over).

         [Note:  There was a prosperous market for hogs if under contract 
                      for Roman consumption among the Legions and Gentile 
                      government officials and contract laborers in Antioch of 
                      Syria and at Caesarea and Jerusalem in Israel.] 

31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.     (KJV)    

31)    Then the demons called to the side of and begged Him,
          laying down definite words, saying,
               'If perhaps You    cast - throw - drive   us out,
                turn upon us - allow us
                to depart - to go away  into the herd of the hogs.'

32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.     (KJV)    

32)   And He said to them, 
              'Go discreetly.'

         Then those coming forth out departed and went away
         into the herd of the hogs.

         And behold, look and see:
         all the herd of the hogs  
         excited and aroused under violent impulse rushed and propelled
         forward, and stampeded violently
         down upon       the precipice - the cliff - the overhang
         into the (enclosed) Sea,
         and died in the moving waters.

33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.     (KJV)  

33)   Then those grazing (and tending over [as Overseers])
          escaped (running in fear).

          And having withdrawn - gone away - departed
          into the [nearby]  (walled)  city  - (walled) town,
          (they) brought word and announced - declared - told   all,
          and that of the violently demon possessed (ones).

34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.      (KJV) 

34)    And behold, look and see:
          all the [nearby]   (walled) city - (walled) town
          came forth out into     [the Countryside]
          to together encounter with Jesus / Yeshua.

          And seeing and beholding Him,
          they called to the side of and begged
          in what manner that 
          He pass or go  from the midst of (that place),
          from the boundaries - from the borders   of them.

[The city or town location of this incident in Matthew 8:28-34,  is thought by some to be Kursi, located in the Golan Heights on the Eastern Shore of the Sea of Galilee. -- Brianroy]
