People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:6

Mt 8:6 Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy. Luke says his servant "was dear unto him", and the whole account of Matthew indicates intense solicitude. Paralysis, or palsy, was a common disease in those days. See Mt 4:24. Alford says, ``The disease of the text may have been tetanus, or lockjaw, which the ancient physicians included under paralysis.'' Luke says that "he was ready to die" (Lu 7:2).
