she came trembling; for fear of the anger and resentment of Christ, and lest the favour would be revoked, and the penalty of the law inflicted; See Gill on Mark 5:33.
And falling down before him; in the most humble manner, "at his feet", as the Arabic version reads; "and worshipped him", as the Syriac, Persic, and Ethiopic versions have it; gave him the glory of the cure, and thanks for it:
she declared unto him before all the people; the whole truth of the matter, what a disease she had laboured under for so long a time, what means she had used to no purpose:
for what cause she had touched him; namely, in order to have a cure, which she believed she should have in that way:And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)47. she came trembling] Because by her touch she had communicated to Him Levitical uncleanness; and this by one of the Rabbis or Pharisees would have been regarded as an intolerable presumption and wrong.

Οὐκ ἔλαθε, that she had not escaped notice [was not hid]) She had wished to escape Jesus’ notice.—ἐνώπιον, in the presence of) Faith drives away all unseasonable modesty.
Not in worship, but in terror. See on fell down, Luke 5:8.
