Bible Commentary for Mark 9:21

Wesley's Notes for Mark 9:21


9:20 When he saw him - When the child saw Christ; when his deliverance was at hand. Immediately the spirit tore him - Made his last grand effort to destroy him. Is it not generally so, before Satan is cast out of a soul, of which he has long had possession?

9:22 If thou canst do any thing - In so desperate a case: Have compassion on us - Me as well as him.

9:23 If thou canst believe - As if he had said, The thing does not turn on my power, but on thy faith. I can do all things: canst thou believe?
