Luke 8:28 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Fell down (προσέπεσεν)

Mark has προσεκύνησεν, which often implies religious or superstitious feeling, as Matthew 4:9, Matthew 4:10. This is the prostration of abject terror.

Cried out (ἀνακράξας)

The compound verb with ἀνά, up, implies what is conveyed by our phrase, lifting up the voice. See on Mark 5:5.

What have I to do with thee?

See on Mark 5:7.

Torment (βασαμίσῃς)

See on Matthew 4:24. Luke never uses the word of sickness, as Matthew 8:6. See on Luke 4:41.
