“But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:22 Take courage - Probably she was struck with fear, when he turned and looked upon her, #Mark 5:33|; Luke 8:47; lest she should have offended him, by touching his garment privately; and the more so, because she was unclean according to the law, #Lev 15:25|.
Mt 9:22 Thy faith had made thee whole. Literally, "thy faith hath saved thee". Her faith, of course, had not been the cause of her cure. Christ's power had been that. But her faith was the condition on her part. Hence it might be represented as having "made her whole". The student should observe that hers was not a passive faith, but it led to action. A passive faith is a dead faith. (See Jas 2:17,20,26).
