Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 5:11

_ _ Now there was there, nigh unto the mountains — rather, “to the mountain,” according to what is clearly the true reading. In Matthew 8:30, they are said to have been “a good way off.” But these expressions, far from being inconsistent, only confirm, by their precision, the minute accuracy of the narrative.

_ _ a great herd of swine feeding — There can hardly be any doubt that the owners of these were Jews, since to them our Lord had now come to proffer His services. This will explain what follows.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 5:1-20.
