5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion
came to him, asking for help.
6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home
paralyzed and in terrible suffering.”
7 Jesus said to him, “I will go and heal him.”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you
come under my roof. But just say the word,
and my servant will be healed.
9 For I myself am a man under authority, with
soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes;
and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes.
I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’
and he does it.”
