“And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:26 Having rent him sore - So does even the body sometimes suffer, when God comes to deliver the soul from Satan.
Mr 9:26 [The spirit] cried, and rent him sore. The evil spirit obeys most reluctantly and seeks to destroy one whom it can no longer use. The paroxysm of departure was fearful, and left the boy exhausted and as dead.
