(35) His ears.--Literally, his hearing, or, as the word is in the plural, his organs of hearing.

The string of his tongue.--Better, bond, that which confined and hampered his speech. (Comp. Luke 13:16.) There is no ground for thinking that St. Mark used the word in any anatomical sense, as the English word seems to suggest, for a "nerve" or "tendon," as in the "eye-strings" of the original text of the "Rock of Ages."
