    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:17

    Y comenzaron a rogarle que se fuese de los trminos de ellos.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And they began to
    pray him , etc..] That is, the inhabitants of the city of Gadara, and of the villages round about, very earnestly importuned him to depart out of their coasts ; fearing, lest for their sins, some sorer judgment should fall upon them, than the loss of their swine; since they perceived he was a person of great power and authority; which shows great ignorance and worldly mindedness: they knew not how great a person they had among them; that he was the Son of God, and Saviour of the world: they might have known from the miracles wrought, that he was a very wonderful and extraordinary person; but then they considered him as one endued with great power, rather, to do them hurt than good; as one sent to scourge them for their sins, than to save them from them: such very contrary notions have carnal men of Christ; they are afraid of being sufferers, or losers by him: they do not care to part with their swinish lusts for him; these they prefer to a Saviour, and love the world, and the things of it, more than he, and therefore are not worthy of him; (see Gill on Matthew 8:34).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-20 - Some openly wilful
    sinners are like this madman. The commands of the law are as chains and fetters, to restrain sinners from their wicke courses; but they break those bands in sunder; and it is an evidence of the power of the devil in them. A legion of soldiers consisted of sin thousand men, or more. What multitudes of fallen spirits there must be and all enemies to God and man, when here was a legion in one poor wretched creature! Many there are that rise up against us. We are not match for our spiritual enemies, in our own strength; but in the Lord and in the power of his might, we shall be able to stand against them though there are legions of them. When the vilest transgressor i delivered by the power of Jesus from the bondage of Satan, he wil gladly sit at the feet of his Deliverer, and hear his word, wh delivers the wretched slaves of Satan, and numbers them among his saints and servants. When the people found that their swine were lost they had a dislike to Christ. Long-suffering and mercy may be seen even in the corrections by which men lose their property while their lives are saved, and warning given them to seek the salvation of their souls. The man joyfully proclaimed what great things Jesus had done for him. All men marvelled, but few followed him. Many who cannot but wonder at the works of Christ, yet do not, as they ought, wonder afte him.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:17 {To depart from their borders} (apelqein apo twn horiwn). Once before the people of
    Nazareth had driven Jesus out of the city (#Lu 4:16-31). Soon they will do it again on his return there (#Mr 6:1-6; Mt 13:54-58). Here in Decapolis pagan influence was strong and the owners of the hogs cared more for the loss of their property than for the healing of the wild demoniac. In the clash between business and spiritual welfare business came first with them as often today. All three Gospels tell of the request for Jesus to leave. They feared the power of Jesus and wanted no further interference with their business affairs.
