    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:24

    Y l mirando, dijo: Veo los hombres, pues veo que andan como rboles.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Mark 8:24

    Verse 24. I see
    men as trees, walking.] His sight was so imperfect that he could not distinguish between men and trees, only by the motion of the former.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. And he looked up , etc..] This is omitted in the Arabic and Persic versions. The sense is, that he opened his eyelids, and lifted up his
    eyes, to try if he could see, and he could, and did see again; his sight was returned again, though very imperfectly as yet: and said, I see men, as trees, walking : he saw some objects at a little distance from him, which, by their motion, he supposed to be men; otherwise his sight was so imperfect, that he could not have distinguished them from trees: he was capable of discerning the bulk of their bodies, and that they walked, or moved forward; but he could not distinguish the particular parts of their bodies; they seemed to be like trunks of trees, in an erect posture, and which he should have took for such, had it not been for their walking. As this man immediately, upon Christ's putting spittle on his eyes, and laying his hands on him, had sight given him, though it was very obscure and glimmering; so, as soon as ever the Gospel comes with power, it dispels the darkness of the mind, and introduces light; though at first it is but very small; it is let in gradually: the sinner is first convinced of the evil of his actions, and then of the sinfulness of his nature; he first sees the ability and suitableness of Christ as a Saviour, and after that his willingness, and his interest in him as such; and all this is commonly before he is so well acquainted with the dignity and infiniteness of his person, as the Son of God: and it is some time before he has his spiritual senses exercised to discern between good and evil, between truth and error; or arrives to a clear and distinct knowledge of Gospel truths, and a stability in them.

    Hence it is, that such are greatly harassed with Satan's temptations; are disquieted in their souls; are filled with doubts and fears, and are in danger of being imposed upon by false teachers.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-26 - Here is a blind man brought to Christ by his friends. Therein appeare the faith of those that brought him. If those who are spirituall blind, do not pray for themselves, yet their friends and relation should pray for them, that Christ would be pleased to touch them. The cure was wrought gradually, which was not usual in our Lord's miracles Christ showed in what method those commonly are healed by his grace who by nature are spiritually blind. At first, their knowledge i confused; but, like the light of the morning, it shines more and mor to the perfect day, and then they see all things clearly. Slightin Christ's favours is forfeiting them; and he will make those who do s know the worth of privileges by the want of them.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24. I see
    men as trees walking (following the reading, Blepw touv ajnqrwpouv wJv dendra peripatountav). The Rev. reads, following the amended text, I see men, for (oti) I behold (orw) them as trees, walking. He saw them dimly. They looked like trees, large and misshapen; but he knew they were men, for they were walking about.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:24 {I see
    men, for I behold them as trees walking} (blepw tous anqrwpous hoti hws dendra horw peripatountas). A vivid description of dawning sight. His vision was incomplete though he could tell that they were men because they were walking. this is the single case of a gradual cure in the healings wrought by Jesus. The reason for this method in this case is not given.
