Luke 8:48

48 “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

Luke 8:48 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 8:48

And he said unto her, daughter
Instead of frowning upon her, and chiding her for what she had done, he addressed her in a very affable and affectionate manner; bidding her

be of good comfort;
and not be afraid; this clause is left out in the Vulgate Latin version, as in ( Mark 5:34 ) but is in the copies, and other versions:

thy faith hath made thee whole, go peace;
(See Gill on Matthew 8:2). (See Gill on Mark 5:34). (See Gill on Luke 7:50).

Luke 8:48 In-Context

46 But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.”
47 When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed.
48 “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
49 While he was still speaking to her, a messenger arrived from the home of Jairus, the leader of the synagogue. He told him, “Your daughter is dead. There’s no use troubling the Teacher now.”
50 But when Jesus heard what had happened, he said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith, and she will be healed.”
