“And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,”
King James Version (KJV)
Mr 5:26 Suffered many things of many physicians. The medical art in Judea in that age was in a very crude condition. Lightfoot gives, from the Rabbinical books, the remedy for a female hemorrhage: ``Let them dig seven ditches, in which let them burn some cuttings of vines under four years old. Let her take in her hand a cup of wine; let them lead her away from this ditch and make her sit over that. Let them remove her from that and sit her over another. At each removal you must say to her, "Arise for thy flux".'' This is an illustration of what this woman suffered.
