8:14 Now 1 when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying down, 2 sick with a fever. 8:15 He touched her hand, and the fever left her. Then 3 she got up and began to serve them. 8:16 When it was evening, many demon-possessed people were brought to him. He drove out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. 4 8:17 In this way what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet was fulfilled: 5
“He took our weaknesses and carried our diseases.” 6
1 tn Grk “And.” Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the transition to a new topic.
2 tn Grk “having been thrown down.” The verb βεβλημένην (beblhmenhn) is a perfect passive participle of the verb βάλλω (ballw, “to throw”). This indicates the severity of her sickness.
3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then.”
4 sn Note how the author distinguishes healing from exorcism here, implying that the two are not identical.
5 tn Grk “was fulfilled, saying.” The participle λέγοντος (legontos) is redundant and has not been translated.
