Young's Literal Translation
and saying, 'Sir, my young man hath been laid in the house a paralytic, fearfully afflicted,'
Matthew 8:6 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Lord - Rather, Sir, for so the word κυριε should always be translated when a Roman is the speaker.
Lieth at home - Βεβληται, lieth all along; intimating that the disease had reduced him to a state of the utmost impotence, through the grievous torments with which it was accompanied.
Sick of the palsy - Or paralytic. See Matthew 4:24. This centurion did not act as many masters do when their servants are afflicted, have them immediately removed to an infirmary, often to a work-house; or sent home to friends or relatives, who probably either care nothing for them, or are unable to afford them any of the comforts of life. In case of a contagious disorder, it may be necessary to remove an infected person to such places as are best calculated to cure the distemper, and prevent the spread of the contagion. But, in all common cases, the servant should be considered as a child, and receive the same friendly attention. If, by a hasty, unkind, and unnecessary removal, the servant die, are not the master and mistress murderers before God?
