Mark 8:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I have compassion (σπλαγχνίξομαι)

A peculiar verb, from σπλάγχνα, the inward parts, especially the nobler entrails - the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys. These came gradually to denote the seat of the affections, like our word heart. This explains the frequent use of the word bowels in the A. V. in the sense of tender mercy, affection, compassion.

The Rev. has properly rejected it in every such case, using it only in its literal sense in the single passage, Acts 1:18.

They have been with me (προσμένουσιν)

Lit., they continue, as Rev.
