Mark 5:2

Out of the boat (ek tou ploiou). Straightway (euqu) Mark says, using the genitive absolute (exelqonto autou) and then repeating autwi associative instrumental after aphnthsen. The demoniac greeted Jesus at once. Mark and Luke 9:27 mention only one man while Matthew notes two demoniacs, perhaps one more violent than the other. Each of the Gospels has a different phrase. Mark has "a man with an unclean spirit" (en pneumati akaqartwi), Matthew 8:28 "two possessed with demons" (duo daimonizomenoi), Luke 8:27 "one having demons" (ti ecwn daimonia). Mark has many touches about this miracle not retained in Matthew and Luke. See on "Mt 8:28".
