EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Matthew 8:14-15.
and lifted her up—This act of condescension, most felt doubtless by Peter, is recorded only by Mark.
and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them—preparing their sabbath-meal: in token both of the perfectness and immediateness of the cure, and of her gratitude to the glorious Healer.See Poole on "Mark 1:29"
and lift her up; to sit upright in the bed, who before was laid along upon it, so weak as not to be able to turn herself, much less to sit erect by any assistance whatever:
and immediately the fever left her: and there was not the least symptom of it, nor none of the effects which it usually leaves; such was the virtue that went forth from Christ by touching her, and such his great power:
and she ministered unto them; she immediately arose from the bed, and put on her clothes, being at once in perfect health and strength; and, in gratitude to her Saviour and physician, she assisted in preparing food for him and his disciples, and served at table to them.And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Mark 1:31. ἥγειρεν, etc., He took hold of her hand and so raised her up, the cure taking place simultaneously. In Matthew the touch (ἥψατο) is the means of cure. Holtz. (H. C.) thinks Jesus took hold of her hand simply by way of greeting, and that the result was unexpected, Jesus thus discovering an unsuspected power.31. he came] Observe all the graphic touches in this verse; the Lord (i) went to the sufferer, (ii) took her by the hand, (iii) lifted her up, and (iv) the fever, rebuked by the Lord of life (Luke 4:39), left her, and (v) she began to minister unto them.
