A woman who had been hemorrhaging for twelve years, and had endured much at the hands of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse-- after hearing about the Rabbi, she came up in the crowd behind him and touched his tallit.  For she thought, "If I just touch his garments, I will get well."

When the Rabbi had crossed over again in the boat to the other side of the sea, a large crowd gathered around him; and so he stayed by the seashore. One of the synagogue leaders named Ya'ir came up, and on seeing the Rabbi, fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death; please come and place your hands on her, so that she will get well and live." And the Rabbi went off with him; and a large crowd was following him and pressing in on him.

When the Rabbi had returned to Kefar Nachum after a trip, it was heard that he was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, not even near the door; and he was speaking the word to them.

And they came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four men. 

The Rabbi and his talmidim traveled to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadryim.  When he got out of the boat, immediately a man from the tombs with a impure spirit met him.  The man dwelt among the tombs and no one was able to bind him anymore, even with a chain; because he had often been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him and the shackles broken in pieces, and no one was strong enough to subdue him. Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains, and gashing himself with stones.

One day, when evening came, the Rabbi said to his talmidim, "Let us go over to the other side of the sea." Leaving the crowd around them, the talmidim took him along with them in the boat, just as he was; and other boats were with him. And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up.

Once, when the Rabbi entered the town of Kefar Nachum, a Roman centurion came to him, imploring him, and saying, "Master, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented."

The Rabbi said to him, "I will come and heal him."

A metzorah [a person afflicted with tzara'at- a spiritual illness expressing itself in certain physical manifestations] came to the Rabbi, beseeching him and falling on his knees before him, and saying, "If you are willing, you are able to purify me."

Moved with compassion, the Rabbi stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be purified."
