7th Sunday after Pentecost

When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!” And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, saying, “See that no one knows it.” But when they had departed, they spread the news about Him in all that country. As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a man, mute and demon-possessed. And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke. And the multitudes marveled, saying, “It was never seen like this in Israel!” But the Pharisees said, “He casts out demons by the ruler of the demons.” Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Недеља 7. по Духовима

А кад је Исус одлазио оданде, за Њим иђаху два слепца вичући и говорећи: Помилуј нас, сине Давидов! А кад дође у кућу, приступише к Њему слепци, и рече им Исус: Верујете ли да могу то учинити? А они Му рекоше: Да Господе. Тада дохвати се очију њихових говорећи: По вери вашој нека вам буде. И отворише им се очи. И запрети им Исус говорећи: Гледајте да нико не дозна. А они изишавши разгласише Га по свој земљи оној. Кад они пак изиђоше, гле, доведоше к Њему човека немог и бесног. И пошто изгна ђавола, проговори неми. И дивљаше се народ говорећи: Никада се тога није видело у Израиљу. А фарисеји говораху: Помоћу кнеза ђаволског изгони ђаволе. И прохођаше Исус по свим градовима и селима учећи по зборницама њиховим и проповедајући јеванђеље о царству, и исцељујући сваку болест и сваку немоћ по људима.
