    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:6

    y diciendo: Seor, mi criado yace en casa paralítico, gravemente atormentado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 8:6

    Verse 6.
    Lord] Rather, Sir, for so the word kurie should always be translated when a Roman is the speaker.

    Lieth at home] beblhtai, lieth all along; intimating that the disease had reduced him to a state of the utmost impotence, through the grievous torments with which it was accompanied.

    Sick of the palsy] Or paralytic. See "chap. iv. 24". This centurion did not act as many masters do when their servants are afflicted, have them immediately removed to an infirmary, often to a work-house; or sent home to friends or relatives, who probably either care nothing for them, or are unable to afford them any of the comforts of life. In case of a contagious disorder, it may be necessary to remove an infected person to such places as are best calculated to cure the distemper, and prevent the spread of the contagion. But, in all common cases, the servant should be considered as a child, and receive the same friendly attention. If, by a hasty, unkind, and unnecessary removal, the servant die, are not the master and mistress murderers before God?


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home , etc.] It would be a difficulty whether it was a son or a servant he was so concerned for; since paiv , the word here used, more commonly signifies a son or child; but that Luke, supposing it to be the same case he relates, expressly calls him doulov , a servant, ( Luke 7:2). The concern of the centurion for him, shows him to have been a good servant, faithful and obedient to his master; since he was so much affected with his case, and took so much care of him; and Luke says, he was dear unto him; in great esteem, highly valued, and much beloved: and also, that the centurion was a good master; he does not put his sick servant from him, but takes care of him at home, and seeks out for relief for him, being greatly desirous of his life. And as his keeping him at home discovered a tender regard to him; so his not bringing him forth, or ordering him to be brought out to Christ, which was sometimes done in such cases, shows his great faith in Christ, that he was as able to cure him lying at home, as if brought before him; absent, as well as present. It is in the original text, is cast; or, as it is rendered, ( Matthew 8:14) laid in the house, as if he was dead, speechless, and without motion; and Luke says, that he was ready to die, being as one laid out for dead. The phrase answers to ljwm , a word often used by the Rabbins; sometimes of sick persons, as when they say of anyone, that he is hjmb ljwmw hlwj , sick, and laid upon the bed; and sometimes of a person really dead, and laid out: and often this phrase is to be met with, wynpl ljwm wtm ym , he that hath his dead cast, or laid out before him f496 ; concerning whom they dispute many things; as what he is free from, the reading of Shema, prayer, and the phylacteries; and where he ought to eat and drink till such time his dead is buried out of his sight. But this mans servant was not dead, but lay as one dead; sick of the palsy , his nerves all relaxed, and he stupid, senseless, motionless, grievously tormented , or punished, or rather afflicted; as the Ethiopic version, and Munsters Hebrew edition read it; for paralytic persons do not feel much pain and torment: but the meaning is, that he was in a miserable afflicted condition. The account of his disorder is given to move Christs compassion, and recorded to show the greatness of the miracle.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-13 - This
    centurion was a heathen, a Roman soldier. Though he was a soldier yet he was a godly man. No man's calling or place will be an excuse for unbelief and sin. See how he states his servant's case. We shoul concern ourselves for the souls of our children and servants, who ar spiritually sick, who feel not spiritual evils, who know not that whic is spiritually good; and we should bring them to Christ by faith an prayers. Observe his self-abasement. Humble souls are made more humbl by Christ's gracious dealings with them. Observe his great faith. The more diffident we are of ourselves, the stronger will be our confidenc in Christ. Herein the centurion owns him to have Divine power, and full command of all the creatures and powers of nature, as a maste over his servants. Such servants we all should be to God; we must go and come, according to the directions of his word and the disposals of his providence. But when the Son of man comes he finds little faith therefore he finds little fruit. An outward profession may cause us to be called children of the kingdom; but if we rest in that, and have nothing else to show, we shall be cast out. The servant got a cure of his disease, and the master got the approval of his faith. What wa said to him, is said to all, Believe, and ye shall receive; onl believe. See the power of Christ, and the power of faith. The healin of our souls is at once the effect and evidence of our interest in the blood of Christ.
