Matthew 9:27

Context
Healing the Blind and Mute

9:27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, shouting, 1  “Have mercy 2  on us, Son of David!” 3 

1 tn Grk “shouting, saying.” The participle λέγοντες (legontes) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

2 sn Have mercy on us is a request for healing. It is not owed to the men. They simply ask for God’s kind grace.

3 sn There was a tradition in Judaism that the Son of David (Solomon) had great powers of healing (Josephus, Ant. 8.2.5 [8.42-49]).
