Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 9:24

_ _ And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe: help thou mine unbelief — that is, “It is useless concealing from Thee, O Thou mysterious, mighty Healer, the unbelief that still struggles in this heart of mine; but that heart bears me witness that I do believe in Thee; and if distrust still remains, I disown it, I wrestle with it, I seek help from Thee against it.” Two things are very remarkable here: First, The felt and owned presence of unbelief, which only the strength of the man’s faith could have so revealed to his own consciousness. Second, His appeal to Christ for help against his felt unbelief — a feature in the case quite unparalleled, and showing, more than all protestations could have done, the insight he had attained into the existence of a power in Christ more glorious them any he had besought for his poor child. The work was done; and as the commotion and confusion in the crowd was now increasing, Jesus at once, as Lord of spirits, gives the word of command to the dumb and deaf spirit to be gone, never again to return to his victim.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 9:14-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 9:24

Help thou mine unbelief — Although my faith be so small, that it might rather be termed unbelief, yet help me.
