|Mark 1: 40 - 45
||And a leper came to him beseeching him, and kneeling said to him, "If you will, you can make me clean."
||Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, "I will; be clean."
||And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.
||And he sternly charged him, and sent him away at once,
||and said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to the people."
||But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.
