Luke 8:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Among (ἐν μέσῳ)

In the midst. Stronger than the simple ἐν, in, as giving more prominence to the danger.

Sprung up with it (συμφυεῖσαι)

Only here in New Testament. See on Luke 8:6, and Matthew 13:7. The technical word among physicians for closing of wounds or ulcers, and the uniting of nerves or bones. Dioscorides uses it, as here, of plants growing in the same place: "The hellebore grows together with the vines."

Choked (ἀπέπνιξαν)

Lit., choked off. Matthew has the simple ἔπνιξαν, choked; and Mark συνέπνιξαν; the σύν, together, emphasizing the idea of compression. Luke is very fond of compounds and sonorous words. See on Luke 23:51.
