Mark 5:2 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
A man with an unclean spirit - There are two mentioned by Matthew, who are termed demoniacs. See on Mark 1:23 (note).

a man. Matthew gives a brief account of two demoniacs who were dispossessed on this occasion; but Mark and Luke omit the mention of one (who was perhaps not so remarkable). That these wretched men were not merely mad, as some suppose, but really possessed of evil spirits, appears clearly from the language employed, as well as from the narrative itself. Matthew expressly affirms that they were 'possessed with devils,' or demoniacs, [daimonizomai ;] Mark says he had 'an unclean spirit,' i.e., a fallen spirit; and Luke asserts, that he 'had devils (or demons) a long time,' and was called Legion, 'because many devils were entered into him.' With supernatural strength the demons burst asunder the chains and fetters with which he was bound; they address Christ as the 'Son of the most high God;' they beseech him to suffer them to enter into the swine; and when he had given them leave, they 'went out and entered into the swine,' etc.

Because of the crowd he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him, to keep the people from crowding him.
Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water's edge.
Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him.
This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain.
When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake.
