16到了黄昏,有些人带了许多被鬼附的人来见耶稣,他只用一句话就把污灵赶出去,并且医好了所有患病的人。




16 ¶ When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
16 Verse 16. When the even was come] The Jews kept their sabbath

from evening to evening, according to the law, ,

From evening to evening shall ye celebrate your sabbath. And the

rabbins say, The sabbath doth not enter but when the sun is set.

Hence it was that the sick were not brought out to our Lord till

after sun-set, because then the sabbath was ended.



Many that were possessed with devils] Dr. Lightfoot gives two

sound reasons why Judea, in our Lord's time, abounded with

demoniacs. First, Because they were then advanced to the very

height of impiety. See what Josephus, their own historian, says

of them: There was not (said he) a nation under heaven more wicked

than they were. . Secondly, Because they

were then strongly addicted to magic, and so, as it were, invited

evil spirits to be familiar with them. It seems strange to find

men at this distance of time questioning the truth of that which

neither scribes nor Pharisees then doubted; nor did they ever object

against the pretensions of Christ and his apostles to cast them

out. And, if the whole business of demonism had been only a

vulgar error, (as wise men now tell us,) what a fine opportunity

had the wise men then, to unmask the whole matter, and thus pour

contempt on the pretensions of our blessed Lord and his followers,

who held it to be one proof of their Divine mission, that demons

were subject to them!



And healed all that were sick] Not a soul did the Lord Jesus

ever reject, who came to him soliciting his aid. Need any sinner

despair who comes to him, conscious of his spiritual malady, to be

healed by his merciful hand?
