Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 5:23

_ _ And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter — Luke (Luke 8:42) says, “He had one only daughter, about twelve years of age.” According to a well-known rabbin, quoted by Lightfoot, a daughter, till she had completed her twelfth year, was called “little,” or “a little maid”; after that, “a young woman.”

_ _ lieth at the point of death — Matthew (Matthew 9:18) gives it thus: “My daughter is even now dead” — “has just expired.” The news of her death reached the father after the cure of the woman with the issue of blood: but Matthew’s brief account gives only the result, as in the case of the centurion’s servant (Matthew 8:5, etc.).

_ _ come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live — or, “that she may be healed and live,” according to a fully preferable reading. In one of the class to which this man belonged, so steeped in prejudice, such faith would imply more than in others.
