(38) A man of the company.—Better, a man from among the multitude.

Master.—Here St. Luke uses the more common word, which means “teacher.”

He is mine only child.—Note, as in the history of the widow of Nain (Luke 5:12), the tender sympathy shown in St. Luke’s narrative. He is the only Evangelist who calls attention to the fact.

9:37-42 How deplorable the case of this child! He was under the power of an evil spirit. Disease of that nature are more frightful than such as arise merely from natural causes. What mischief Satan does where he gets possession! But happy those that have access to Christ! He can do that for us which his disciples cannot. A word from Christ healed the child; and when our children recover from sickness, it is comfortable to receive them as healed by the hand of Christ.See this passage explained in the Matthew 17:14-21 notes, and Mark 9:14-29 notes.

(See on [1613]Mr 9:14-32.)

See Poole on "Luke 9:37" And behold, a man of the company,.... One that was in the company, and among the multitude, that met him:

cried out; with great vehemence and earnestness:

saying, Master; doctor, or "Rabbi":

I beseech thee: most humbly, for he was now on his knees:

look upon my son: with pity and compassion, and help him:

for he is mine only child; wherefore he was dear unto him, and he was greatly concerned for him, and earnestly desirous of his being restored to health; and this he mentions, to move the compassion of Christ.

And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.
Luke 9:38. ἐπιβλέψαι, to look with pity, as in Luke 1:48.—μονογενής, only son, as in Luke 7:12, Luke 8:42. to bring out the benevolence of the miracle.38. of the company] Rather, from the crowd.

Master] Rather, Teacher or Rahbi.

he is mine only child] See on Luke 8:42.Verse 38. - A man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child. The tender sympathy of St. Luke is shown in this little detail. He is the only evangelist who mentions that the poor tormented boy was an only child. Master (διδάσκαλε)


Look upon (ἐπίβλεψαι)

Only here and James 2:3. To look with pitying regard; and by medical writers of examining the condition of a patient.
