1: (Mt 4:18,Mr 1:16).

6: Their net brake - Began to tear.

8: Depart from me, for I am a sinful man - And therefore not worthy to be in thy presence.

11: They forsook all and followed him - They had followed him before, (Joh 1:43), but not so as to forsake all. Till now, they wrought at their ordinary calling.

12: (Mt 8:2,Mr 1:40).

14: (Le 14:2).

16: He withdrew - The expression in the original implies, that he did so frequently.

17: Sitting by - As being more honourable than the bulk of the congregation, who stood. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them - To heal the sickness of their souls, as well as all bodily diseases.

18: (Mt 9:2,Mr 2:3).

19: Not being able to bring him in through the multitude, they went round about by a back passage, and going up the stairs on the outside, they came upon the flat - roofed house, and let him down through the trap door, such as was on the top of most of the Jewish houses: doubtless, with such circumspection as the circumstances plainly required.

26: We have seen strange things to. day - Sins forgiven, miracles wrought.

27: (Mt 9:9,Mr 2:14).

28: Leaving all - His business and gain.

29: And Levi made him a great entertainment - It was necessarily great, because of the great number of guests.

33: Make prayers - Long and solemn.(Mt 9:14,Mr 2:18).

34: Can ye make - That is, is it proper to make men fast and mourn, during a festival solemnity?

36: He spake also a parable - Taken from clothes and wine; therefore peculiarly proper at a feast.

39: And no man having drunk old wine - And beside, men are not wont to be immediately freed from old prejudices.
