VIII. 2. Mary Magdalene - Or Mary of Magdala, a town in Galilee: probably the person mentioned in the last chapter.

Verse 4. Matthew 13:1; Mark 4:1.

Verse 15. Who - keep it - Not like the highway side: And bring forth fruit - Not like the thorny ground: With perseverance - Not like the stony.

Verse 16. No man having lighted a candle - As if ho had said, And let your good fruit appear openly. Matthew 5:15; Mark 4:21; Luke 11:33.

Verse 17. For nothing is hid - Strive not to conceal it at all; for you can conceal nothing long. Matthew 10:26; Mark 4:22; Luke 12:2.

Verse 18. The word commonly translated seemeth, wherever it occurs, does not weaken, but greatly strengthens the sense. Matthew 13:12; Mark 4:25; Luke 19:26.

Verse 19. Matthew 12:46; Mark 3:31.

Verse 22. Matthew 8:23; Mark 4:35.

Verse 29. For many times it had caught him - Therefore our compassionate Lord made the more haste to cast him out.

Verse 31. The abyss - That is, the bottomless pit.

Verse 32. To enter into the swine - Not that they were any easier in the swine than out of them. Had it been so, they would not so soon have dislodged themselves, by destroying the herd.

Verse 37. Matthew 9:1; Mark 5:18.

Verse 40. Mark 5:21.

Verse 52. She is not dead but sleepeth - Her soul is not separated finally from the body; and this short separation is rather to be called sleep than death.
