Mark 8:25 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Made him look up

The best texts omit, and substitute διέβλεψεν, he looked stedfastly. See on Matthew 7:5. Instead of vaguely staring, he fixed his eyes on definite objects.

He saw (ἐνέβλεπεν)

Imperfect tense. Continuous action. He saw and continued to see. Compare the aorist tense above: He looked stedfastly, fastened his eyes, denoting the single act, the first exercise of his restored sight.

Every man

Following the reading ἕπαντας. But the best texts read ἅπαντα, all things. So Rev.

Clearly (τηλαυγῶς)

From τῆλε, far, αὐγή, shining. The farthest things were clearly seen.
