8:6 “Lord, 4 my servant 5 is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible anguish.”

sn The ancient term for leprosy covers a wider array of conditions than what we call leprosy today. A leper was totally ostracized from society until he was declared cured (Lev 13:45-46).
2 tn Grk “a leper approaching, bowed low before him, saying.”
3 tn This is a third class condition. The report portrays the leper making no presumptions about whether Jesus will heal him or not.
5 tn The Greek term here is παῖς (pais), often used of a slave who was regarded with some degree of affection, possibly a personal servant (Luke 7:7 uses the more common term δοῦλος, doulos). See L&N 87.77.
6 tn Grk “But answering, the centurion replied.” The participle ἀποκριθείς (apokriqeis) is redundant and has not been translated.
