As he en­tered Caper­naum, a cen­tu­rion came for­ward to him, beg­ging him and say­ing, “Lord, my ser­vant is ly­ing par­a­lyzed at home, in ter­ri­ble dis­tress.” And he said to him, “I will come and heal him.” But the cen­tu­rion an­swered him, “Lord, I am not wor­thy to have you come un­der my roof; but only say the word, and my ser­vant will be healed. For I am a man un­der author­ity, with soldiers un­der me; and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Je­sus heard him, he mar­veled, and said to those who fol­lowed him, “Truly, I say to you, not even in Is­rael have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and sit at ta­ble with Abra­ham, Isaac, and Ja­cob in the king­dom of heaven.”

Matthew 8:5-11
