Then a man with a serious skin disease came to Him and, on his knees, begged Him: "If You are willing, You can make me clean."
Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out His hand and touched him. "I am willing," He told him. "Be made clean."
Immediately the disease left him, and he was healed.
Then He sternly warned him and sent him away at once,
telling him, "See that you say nothing to anyone; but go and show yourself to the priest, and offer what Moses prescribed for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."
