Mark Chapter 5

Mark 5:1
5:1 And {1} they came over unto the other side of the sea, into
    the country of the {a} Gadarenes.

 (1) Many hold the virtue of Christ in admiration, and yet they
     will not lose even the least thing they have in order to
     redeem it.
     (a) \\See Geneva "Mt 8:30"\\

Mark 5:2
5:2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him
    out of the tombs a man {b} with an unclean spirit,

    (b) Literally, "in an unclean spirit"; now they are said to
        be in the spirit because the spirit holds them tightly
        locked up, and as it were bound.

Mark 5:7
5:7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do
    with thee, Jesus, [thou] Son of the most high God? I {c}
    adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

    (c) That is, assure me by an oath that you will not vex me.

Mark 5:10
5:10 And he {d} besought him much that he would not send them
     away out of the country.

     (d) The demon that was the spokesperson of the many.

Mark 5:11
5:11 Now there was there nigh unto the {e} mountains a great
     herd of swine feeding.

     (e) This whole country is for the most part very hilly, for
         the mountains of Galeed run through it.

Mark 5:13
5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean
     spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd
     ran violently down a steep place into the {f} sea, (they
     were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

     (f) Strabo in the sixteenth book says that in Gadaris there
         is a standing pool of very polluted water, which if
         beasts taste, they shed their hair, nails, or hooves
         and horns.

Mark 5:22
5:22 And, {g} behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the
     synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at
     his feet,

     (g) The whole company did not assemble without any
         structure, but in every synagogue there were certain
         men who governed the people.

Mark 5:25
5:25 {2} And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve
     years,

 (2) Jesus being touched with true faith, although it is but
     weak, heals us by his virtue.

Mark 5:36
5:36 {3} As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he
     saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only
     believe.

 (3) By faith fathers apprehended the promises of life even for
     their children.

Mark 5:40
5:40 {4} And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them
     all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel,
     and them {b} that were with him, and entereth in where the
     damsel was lying.

 (4) Such as mock and scorn Christ are unworthy to be witnesses
     of his goodness.
     (b) The three disciples.
