Mark 1:26 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 1:26

And when the unclean spirit had torn him
Not that he had torn any limb from him, or had made any wound in any part of his body; for Luke says, ( Luke 4:35 ) , that he "hurt him not", but he shook him; and as Luke there says, "threw him in the midst", of the people, or synagogue; and so the Syriac, Persic, and Ethiopic versions read here, "he cast him", or "threw him to the ground": he threw him into convulsions, and laid him prostrate on the floor:

and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him;
though sorely, against his will, as his loud cry showed, and being obliged to it by a superior power.

Mark 1:26 In-Context

24 “Why are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”
25 Jesus cut him short. “Be quiet! Come out of the man,” he ordered.
26 At that, the evil spirit screamed, threw the man into a convulsion, and then came out of him.
27 Amazement gripped the audience, and they began to discuss what had happened. “What sort of new teaching is this?” they asked excitedly. “It has such authority! Even evil spirits obey his orders!”
28 The news about Jesus spread quickly throughout the entire region of Galilee.
