“But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:8 So what was to the scribes an occasion of blaspheming, was to the people an incitement to praise God.
Mt 9:8 The multitudes . . . marvelled. Why should they not? "His name shall be called Wonderful" (Isa 9:6).
