NA28 Greek N.T. Verses of the Day Mark 5:30-33


       Mark 5:30–33 (NA28)

30καὶ εὐθὺς ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐπιγνοὺς ἐν ἑαυτῷ τὴν ἐξ αὐτοῦ δύναμιν ἐξελθοῦσαν ἐπιστραφεὶς ἐν τῷ ὄχλῳ ἔλεγεν· τίς μου ἥψατο τῶν ἱματίων; 

31καὶ ἔλεγον αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ· βλέπεις τὸν ὄχλον συνθλίβοντά σε καὶ λέγεις· τίς μου ἥψατο; 

32καὶ περιεβλέπετο ἰδεῖν τὴν τοῦτο ποιήσασαν. 

33ἡ δὲ γυνὴ φοβηθεῖσα καὶ τρέμουσα , εἰδυῖα ὃ γέγονεν αὐτῇ, ἦλθεν καὶ προσέπεσεν αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ πᾶσαν τὴν ἀλήθειαν.

From the Faithlife Study Bible

5:30 power This story and the story of Jarius’ daughter focus on the relationship between power and faith. Belief gives people access to Jesus’ life-giving power; unbelief blocks it (e.g., Mark 2:5; 9:19–24).

5:33 frightened and trembling If she would admit to the healing, she would acknowledge that she had compromised the ritual purity of Jesus as well as members of the crowd (see v. 27 and note). The woman likely feared reprisal for violating religious law. She may also be afraid because she has just experienced divine power, and without permission, and is concerned about how Jesus will respond (v. 32).
