EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Master.—The same word as in Luke 8:24, where see Note.Matthew 9:18-26, and Mark 5:21-43. See Poole on "Luke 8:41" Mark 5:30.
When all denied; both the disciples and the multitude, as many as were near him, and who might be thought to have done it; all excepting the woman, who afterwards came and declared it; for it is very likely, that as soon as she had touched his garment, and got her cure, she drew further off:
Peter, and they that were with him; the rest of the disciples, who were in company together, as appears from Mark 5:31
Said, Master, the multitude throng thee, and press thee, and sayest thou, who touched me? or "my garment", as the Ethiopic version reads; See Gill on Mark 5:31.And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Luke 8:45. ὁ Πέτρος: Mk. says “the disciples,” but one would speak for the rest, and Lk. naturally makes Peter the spokesman.—συνέχουσί σε, hem thee in.—ἀποθλίβουσιν, squeeze, like grapes (Joseph., Ant., ii., Luke 8:2).45. Peter and they that were with him] St Mark merely says His disciples, but the question is in exact accordance with that presumptuous impetuosity which marked the as yet imperfect stage of Peter’s character.Verse 45. - Who touched me? The Master's words here and the statement of ver. 46, "For I perceive that virtue is gone out of me," tell us something of the earnestness and faith of the suppliant. Many, as Peter said, in that crowd were touching Jesus as they pressed round him to look on his face or to listen to his words, but of them all none save this poor sufferer "touched" him in the true deep sense of touching, with the fixed idea that contact with his blessed Person would benefit or heal them.
Lit., who is he that touched ? Rev., who is it that.
Throng and press (συνέχουσιν - ἀποθλίβουσιν)
On the former word, see Luke 8:37, and Luke 4:38. Rev. renders the latter, which occurs here only, more literally, crush. It means to squeeze out, as wine from grapes. See on tribulation, Matthew 13:21.
