“And behold, there was a certaine man before him, which had the dropsie.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
14:2 There was a certain man before him - It does not appear that he was come thither with any insidious design. Probably he came, hoping for a cure, or perhaps was one of the family.
Lu 14:2-6 A certain man before him who had the dropsy. Either a guest or one who came to be healed.
