29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went into Simon and Andrew’s house with James and John.
30 Simon’s mother-in-law was lying in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once.
31 So he went to her, took her by the hand, and raised her up. The fever left her, and she began to serve them.
32 When evening came, after the sun had set, they brought to him all those who were sick and demon-possessed.
33 The whole town was assembled at the door,
34 and he healed many who were sick with various diseases and drove out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.
35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he got up, went out, and made his way to a deserted place; and there he was praying.
36 Simon and his companions searched for him,
37 and when they found him they said, “Everyone is looking for you.”
38 And he said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.”
