Mark 8:12 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Sighed deeply in his spirit

Peculiar to Mark.

There shall no sign be given (εἰ δοθήσεται σημεῖον)

Lit., if a sign shall be given. The expression is elliptical. It is a Hebrew idiom, and is really, at bottom, a form of imprecation. If I do not thus or so, may some judgment overtake me. Compare Hebrews 3:11.
