Matthew 8:5-13 BBE
(5) And when Jesus was come into Capernaum, a certain captain came to him with a request, (6) Saying, Lord, my servant is ill in bed at the house, with no power in his body, and in great pain. (7) And he said to him, I will come and make him well. (8) And the captain in answer said, Lord, I am not good enough for you to come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant will be made well. (9) Because I myself am a man under authority, having under me fighting men; and I say to this one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does it. (10) And when these words came to the ears of Jesus he was surprised, and said to those who came after him, Truly I say to you, I have not seen such great faith, no, not in Israel. (11) And I say to you that numbers will come from the east and the west, and will take their seats with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven: (12) But the sons of the kingdom will be put out into the dark, and there will be weeping and cries of pain. (13) And Jesus said to the captain, Go in peace; as your faith is, so let it be done to you. And the servant was made well in that hour.

Matthew 8:5-13 CEV
(5) When Jesus was going into the town of Capernaum, an army officer came up to him and said, (6) "Lord, my servant is at home in such terrible pain that he can't even move." (7) "I will go and heal him," Jesus replied. (8) But the officer said, "Lord, I'm not good enough for you to come into my house. Just give the order, and my servant will get well. (9) I have officers who give orders to me, and I have soldiers who take orders from me. I can say to one of them, 'Go!' and he goes. I can say to another, 'Come!' and he comes. I can say to my servant, 'Do this!' and he will do it." (10) When Jesus heard this, he was so surprised that he turned and said to the crowd following him, "I tell you that in all of Israel I've never found anyone with this much faith! (11) Many people will come from everywhere to enjoy the feast in the kingdom of heaven with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. (12) But the ones who should have been in the kingdom will be thrown out into the dark. They will cry and grit their teeth in pain." (13) Then Jesus said to the officer, "You may go home now. Your faith has made it happen." Right then his servant was healed.

Matthew 8:5-13 ALT
(5) Now when He entered into Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, (6) and saying, "Lord, my slave boy has been laid in the house a paralytic, being terribly tormented [or, being in great pain]." (7) And Jesus says to him, "Having come, _I_ will heal him." (8) And answering, the centurion said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, _but_ only say a word, and my slave boy will be healed. (9) For _I_ also am a person under authority, having under myself soldiers, and I say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes, and to another, 'Be coming,' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does [it]." (10) So having heard, Jesus marveled and said to the ones following, "Positively, I say to you*, I [have] not found such great faith even in Israel! (11) "Now I say to you*, many from east and west will come and will be reclined [to eat] with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens. (12) "But the sons [and daughters] of the [earthly] kingdom [or, the kingdom [of Satan]] will be cast out into the outer darkness. In that place [there] will be weeping and gnashing of teeth!" (13) And Jesus said to the centurion, "Be going, and as you believed, let it happen to you." And his slave boy was healed in that hour [or, at that moment].

Matthew 8:5-13 NWT
5 When he entered into Capernaum, an army officer came to him, entreating him 6 and saying: "Sir, my manservant is laid up in the house with paralysis, being terribly tormented." 7 He said to him: "When I get there I will cure him." 8 In reply the army officer said: "Sir, I am not a fit man for you to enter under my roof, but just say the word and my manservant will be healed. 9 For I too am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me, and I say to this one, 'Be on your way!' and he is on his way, and to another, 'Come!" and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it." 10 Hearing that, Jesus became amazed and said to those following him: "I tell YOU the truth, With no one in Israel have I found so great a faith. 11 But I tell YOU that many from eastern parts and western parts will come and recline at the table with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens; 12 whereas the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the darkness outside. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be." 13 Then Jesus said to the army officer: "Go. Just as it has been your faith, so let it come to pass for you." And the manservant was healed in that hour.
