When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, â€˜Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.â€™ He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, â€˜I do choose. Be made clean!â€™ Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, â€˜See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.â€™
