And he stood over her
"At her head", as the Persic version reads: he inclined himself towards her, to see how she did, and to take her by the hand, and lift her up;
and rebuked the fever.
The Syriac and Persic versions read, "her fever", that which was upon her;
and it left her,
as Mark says, "immediately"; as soon as ever he had touched her hand, and rebuked the fever, and bid it be gone:
and immediately she arose, and ministered unto them;
(See Gill on Matthew 8:15).
