Mark v. 24. much people followed him, and thronged him.



Matt. ix. 20. behold,

Mark v. 25. a certain woman,

Matt. ix. 20 which was diseased

Mark v. 25. which had an issue of blood twelve years,

26. And had suffered many things of many physicians, and
had spent all that she had,

Lukeviii.43. upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
Mark v. 26. and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she heard of Jesus, came into the press behind,
and touched his garment.


Matt, ix. 20. touched the hem of his garment:

Mark v. 28.

For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

Lukeviii.44. and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
Mark v. 29.



And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?


Lukeviii.45. When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Mark v. 31. his disciples said unto him,

Lukeviii.45. Master,

Mark v. 31. Thou seest the multitude thronging thee,

Lukeviii.45. and press thee,

Mark v. 31. and sayest thou, Who touched me?

Lukeviii.46. And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

Mark v. 32.


And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

But the woman

Lukeviii.47. when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came Mark v. 33. fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. Lukeviii.47. she declared unto him, before all the people, for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

Matt. ix. 22. and when he saw her, he said

Lukeviii.48. unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort:

Mark v. 34. Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole: go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Matt.ix. 22. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Mark v. 35.


Mark v. 36.

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead; why troublest thou the Master any farther? But when Jesus heard it,

As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken,

Lukeviii.50. he answered him,

Mark v. 36. and said unto the ruler of the synagogue,
Lakeviii.50. saying,

Mark v. 36. Be not afraid, only believe.

Lukeviii.50. Fear not-and she shall be made whole.


And when he came into the house,

Mark v. 37. he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.

38. And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult,

Matt. ix. 23. and saw the minstrels, and the people making a noise, Mark v. 38. and them that wept and wailed greatly.


And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep.

Matt. ix.24. Give place:

Lukeviii.52. Weep not;

Mark v. 39. for the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

40. And they laughed him to scorn.

Lakeviii.53. knowing that she was dead.

Mark v. 40. But when he had put them all out, (and)

Matt. ix. 25. when the people were put forth,

Mark v. 40. he taketh the father and mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was



And he took the damsel by the hand,

Lukeviii.54. and called,

Mark v. 41. and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.


Mark v. 42.

And her spirit came again,

And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years.

Lukeviii.55. and he commanded

Mark v. 43. that something should be given her to eat.
Lukeviii.56. And her parents were astonished:

Mark v. 42. they were astonished with a great astonishment.


And he charged them straitly, that no man should know it;

Lukeviii.56. that they should tell no man what was done.

and followed him, and

20 And-a woman-with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and—

21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

22 But Jesus turned him about-Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.

Matt. ix. 27.





23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house

24 He said unto them-for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

25 But he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid

48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole: go in peace.

49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.

51 he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden.

52 And all wept and bewailed her: but he said-she is not dead, but sleepeth.

53 And they laughed him to scorn

and she arose straightway-to give her meat.

Christ restores two Blind Men to Sight.

MATT. ix. 27-31.

And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying and saying, Thou Son of David, have

mercy on us.

And when he was come into the house, the blind men ye that I came to him and Jesus said unto them, Believe am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See no man know it.

But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.

Mat. xiii.54. and said,

Mark vi. 2. From whence hath this man these things? and what wis-
dom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty
works are wrought by his hands?

3. Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother
of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon, and are not
his sisters here with us?

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is
plenteous, but the labourers are few;

send forth labourers into his harvest.

From the Mission of the twelve Apostles to the Mission of
the Seventy.


Christ's Commission to the twelve Apostles'.

LUKE ix. 1-6.

MATT. X. xi. 1. MARK VI. 7-13.
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave
them power and authority over all devils.

The various sections of this chapter are placed in the same order in which they are respectively inserted in the arrangements of the five harmonizers, by whom I am principally guided. Doddridge considers John vii. 1. as belonging to the same passages to which it is annexed by the others, though, for the sake of convenience, he joins it with the rest of the chapter (a). Michaelis also places the calling of the twelve Apostles in the order of St. Matthew, and inserts John vii. 1. at the head of various passages, which he considers supplementary to the accounts of the other Evangelists.

(a) Vide notes and paraphrase, Doddridge's Fam. Expositor, sect. 98, vol. i. p. 503.

2 Our Lord had now continued his ministry till the whole population of Judea, Samaria, and Galilee, had heard of his miracles and preaching. Many had followed him from place to place, and from these he selected twelve, as the constant witnesses of his actions. The word ikλedvμevol, which in our translation is interpreted "they fainted," is generally considered as an erroneous reading. It is rejected by Griesbach, and all the best MSS. versions and fathers, who read ¿oxvλμivo, which may be rendered grieved, or melancholy, and this inter
