(10) Found the servant whole.—Note St. Luke’s characteristic use, as in Luke 5:31, of a technical term for “healthy” or “convalescent.”

7:1-10 Servants should study to endear themselves to their masters. Masters ought to take particular care of their servants when they are sick. We may still, by faithful and fervent prayer, apply to Christ, and ought to do so when sickness is in our families. The building places for religious worship is a good work, and an instance of love to God and his people. Our Lord Jesus was pleased with the centurion's faith; and he never fails to answer the expectations of that faith which honours his power and love. The cure soon wrought and perfect.They besought him instantly - Urgently or earnestly.

He was worthy - The centurion. He had showed favor to the Jews, and it was not improper to show him a kindness.

5. loved our nation—Having found that "salvation was of the Jews," he loved them for it.

built, &c.—His love took this practical and appropriate form.

See Poole on "Luke 7:1"

And they that were sent,.... Both the elders of the Jews, and the friends of the centurion:

returning to the house; of the centurion, where his servant lay, and from whence they came:

found the servant whole that had been sick; for he was healed directly, as soon as the centurion had expressed his faith, and Christ had declared that it should be according to it, Matthew 8:13.

And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.
10. found the servant whole] Rather, convalescent, a medical word which is found also in Luke 15:27 (and in a metaphorical sense in Titus 1:13; 1 Timothy 1:10; 1 Timothy 6:3; 2 Timothy 1:13; 2 Timothy 4:3).

that had been sick] These words should probably be omitted.

Luke 7:10. Ὑγιαίνοντα) not merely whole and sound (ὑγιῆ), but using the health and soundness given him [ὑγιαίνοντα].

Verse 10. - Returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick. Farrar suggests "convalescent" as a more accurate rendering than "whole." The Greek equivalent is one of the medical words we find in this Gospel of St. Luke. The words, "that had been sick," do not occur in the other authorities. They are omitted in the Revised Version. Luke 7:10Whole (ὑγιαίνοντα)

See on Luke 5:31. The best texts omit that had been sick.
