Matthew 9:27-31

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  9:28 When 4  he went into the house, the blind men came to him. Jesus 5  said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” 9:29 Then he touched their eyes saying, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.” 9:30 And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about this.” 9:31 But they went out and spread the news about him throughout that entire region. 6 

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]).

4 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

5 tn Grk “to him, and Jesus.” This is a continuation of the previous sentence in Greek, but a new sentence was started here in the translation.

6 tn For the translation of τὴν γῆν ἐκείνην (thn ghn ekeinhn) as “that region,” see L&N 1.79.
