Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 4:24

_ _ And his fame went throughout all Syria — reaching first to the part of it adjacent to Galilee, called Syro-Phoenicia (Mark 7:26), and thence extending far and wide.

_ _ and they brought unto him all sick people — all that were ailing or unwell. Those

_ _ that were taken — for this is a distinct class, not an explanation of the “unwell” class, as our translators understood it.

_ _ with divers diseases and torments — that is, acute disorders.

_ _ and those which were possessed with devils — that were demonized or possessed with demons.

_ _ and those which were lunatic — moon-struck.

_ _ and those that had the palsy — paralytics, a word not naturalized when our version was made.

_ _ and he healed them — These healings were at once His credentials and illustrations of “the glad tidings” which He proclaimed. After reading this account of our Lord’s first preaching tour, can we wonder at what follows?

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 4:23-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 4:24

Through all Syria — The whole province, of which the Jewish country was only a small part. And demoniacs — Men possessed with devils: and lunatics, and paralytics — Men ill of the palsy, whose cases were of all others most deplorable and most helpless.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 4:24

And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and (n) torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were (o) lunatick, and those that had the (p) palsy; and he healed them.

(n) The word signifies properly the stone with which gold is tried: and by a borrowed kind of speech, is applied to all kinds of examinations by torture, when as by rough dealing and torments, we draw out the truths from men who otherwise would not confess: in this place it is taken for those diseases, which put sick men to great woe.

(o) Who at every full moon or the change of the moon, are troubled and diseased.

(p) Weak and feeble men, who have the parts of their body loosed and so weakened, that they are neither able to gather them up together, nor do with them as they wish.
