Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 7:34

_ _ And looking up to heaven — ever acknowledging His Father, even while the healing was seen to flow from Himself (see on John 5:19).

_ _ he sighed — “over the wreck,” says Trench, “which sin had brought about, and the malice of the devil in deforming the fair features of God’s original creation.” But, we take it, there was a yet more painful impression of that “evil thing and bitter” whence all our ills have sprung, and which, when “Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses” (Matthew 8:17), became mysteriously His own.

“In thought of these his brows benign,
Not even in healing, cloudless shine.”
— Keble

_ _ and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened — Our Evangelist, as remarked on Mark 5:41, loves to give such wonderful words just as they were spoken.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 7:31-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 7:34

Ephphatha — This was a word of SOVEREIGN AUTHORITY, not an address to God for power to heal: such an address was needless; for Christ had a perpetual fund of power residing in himself, to work all miracles whenever he pleased, even to the raising the dead, John 5:21, John 5:26.
