Verse 34. "So Jesus had compassion on them" - eplagcniaqeiv, He was moved with tender pity. The tender pity of Christ met the earnest cry of the blind men, and their immediate cure was the result.
"They followed him." - As a proof of the miracle that was wrought, and of the gratitude which they felt to their benefactor. For other particulars of this miraculous cure, see the notes on Mark x. 46, &c.
Reader, whosoever thou art, act in behalf of thy soul as these blind men did in behalf of their sight, and thy salvation is sure. Apply to the Son of David; lose not a moment; he is passing by, and thou art passing into eternity, and probably wilt never have a more favourable opportunity than the present. The Lord increase thy earnestness and faith!
