“As Jesus was getting
Into the boat,
Who had been possessed
That he might be
καὶ ἐμβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πλοῖον παρεκάλει αὐτὸν ὁ δαιμονισθεὶς ἵνα μετ’ αὐτοῦ ᾖ.
There is something similar in Luke, chapter 8:38, while there is nothing like this in Matthew. Mark said that as Jesus was getting into the boat (καὶ ἐμβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πλοῖον), the man, who had been possessed by demons (ὁ δαιμονισθεὶς) begged or entreated Jesus (παρεκάλει αὐτὸν) to let him go with him (ἵνα μετ’ αὐτοῦ ᾖ). This formerly possessed man wanted to be a follower of Jesus with him. This seems like a reasonable request.
