"Where did the devils ask not to go?" (Alleged Contradiction #E9453)
And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.
“Into the deep” is “out of the country.”
“The deep” probably refers to the prison in Hell where some demons are currently held captive (I Peter 3:19). Since Hell is “out of the country,” there is no contradiction.
