Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Mark 14:35

Fell on the ground (epipten epi thv ghv).
Descriptive imperfect. See him falling. Matthew has the aorist epesen.

Prayed (proshuxeto).
Imperfect, prayed repeatedly or inchoative, began to pray. Either makes good sense.

The hour (h wra).
Jesus had long looked forward to this "hour" and had often mentioned it (John 7:30; 8:20; 12:23,27; 13:1). See again in Mark 14:41. Now he dreads it, surely a human trait that all can understand.
