And he put forth his hand and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediatly the leprosy departed from him. and he charged him to tell no man; but said <​unto​> him; go and shew thyself to the priests, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. But so much the more there went <​went there​> a fame abroad abroad of him; and great multitudes came together to hear, him & to be heald <​by him​> of their infirmities. <​/​> And he withdrew himself into the willderness, and prayed. <​4/​> and it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharasees, and Doctors of the law sitting by, who were come out of every town of Gallilee, and Judeah, and Jerusalem.
