Acts 28:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Sick (συνεχόμενον)

Lit., taken or holden. See on taken, Luke 4:38.

Fever (πυρετοῖς)

Lit., fevers. This peculiarly medical use of the plural is confined to Luke in the New Testament. It denotes successive and varying attacks of fever.

Bloody flux (δυσεντερίᾳ)

Only here in New Testament. Our word dysentery is nearly a transcript of it. Hippocrates often speaks of the two complaints in combination.

Healed (ἰάσατο)

See on Luke 6:19.
