Mark 9:27 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 9:27

But Jesus took him by the hand
"Took hold of the hand of the child", as the Persic version renders it;

and lifted him up;
from the ground, on which he was cast by the spirit;

and he arose:
this is omitted in the Syriac and Arabic versions, though in one edition of the latter, according to De Dieu, it is rendered, "and he stood"; to which is added, "and went into his own house". The Persic version, instead of this clause, reads, "and the child was healed"; and all the expressions show, that he was perfectly well.

Mark 9:27 In-Context

25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him,Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
29 And he said unto them,This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
