32  And He said to them, "Go."So they came out, and went off into the herd of swine. And behold, the whole herd of swine rushed violently down the steep bank into the sea, and died in the waters.

32  And he said unto them, Go. And they came out, and went into the swine: and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep into the sea, and perished in the waters.

32  Jesus said to them, Go. And immediately they left and attacked the swine, and the whole herd went straight over the cliff, and fell into the sea, and were drowned in the water.

33  Then those who tended them fled; and going off into the city, they reported everything, including what had happened to the demon-possessed [men].

33  And they that fed them fled, and went away into the city, and told everything, and what was befallen to them that were possessed with demons.

33  Then the shepherds fled, and arriving in the city, they reported on all this, and on those who had had the demons.
