Centurion's servant

Matthew
8:5-13
Luke
7:1-10
{5} And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, {6} And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. {7} And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. {8} The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. {9} For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. {10} When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. {11} And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. {12} But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. {13} And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. {1} Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. {2} And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. {3} And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. {4} And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: {5} For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. {6} Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: {7} Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. {8} For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. {9} When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. {10} And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.
