Matthew 17:14-15

Context
The Disciples’ Failure to Heal

17:14 When 1  they came to the crowd, a man came to him, knelt before him, 17:15 and said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, because he has seizures 2  and suffers terribly, for he often falls into the fire and into the water.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “he is moonstruck,” possibly meaning “lunatic” (so NAB, NASB), although now the term is generally regarded as referring to some sort of seizure disorder such as epilepsy (L&N 23.169; BDAG 919 s.v. σεληνιάζομαι).
