The demoniac was cured (Mk 5:15-5:15)

“The people came

To Jesus.

They saw

The demoniac

Sitting there,


And in his right mind.

This was

The very man

Who had

The legion

Of evil spirits.

They were afraid.”


καὶ ἔρχονται πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν, καὶ θεωροῦσιν τὸν δαιμονιζόμενον καθήμενον ἱματισμένον καὶ σωφρονοῦντα, τὸν ἐσχηκότα τὸν λεγιῶνα, καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν.


There is something similar in Luke, chapter 8:35, while there is nothing like this in MatthewMark said that the people came to Jesus (καὶ ἔρχονται πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν).  They saw the demoniac sitting there (καὶ θεωροῦσιν τὸν δαιμονιζόμενον καθήμενον), clothed (ἱματισμένον), and in his right mind or sober minded (καὶ σωφρονοῦντα).  This was the very violent man, who had the legion or thousands of evil spirits (τὸν ἐσχηκότα τὸν λεγιῶνα).  However, they were afraid (καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν), because of all that happened.
