Luke 8:48 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 8:48

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).
