Matthew 20:29. And as they departed from Jericho As he went out of Jericho with his disciples: (Mark,) behold two blind men Mark and Luke mention only one of them, blind Bartimeus, who, it seems, was far the more eminent of the two, and spoke for both. These blind men, hearing the multitude pass by, asked what it meant, (Luke 18:36,) and being told that Jesus of Nazareth passed by, they cried, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. The multitude rebuked them, because, &c. The original words in this place, επετιμησεν αυτοις ινα σιωπησωσιν , should rather be rendered, charged them to hold their peace And so they will rebuke and charge all who begin to cry after the son of David: but let all those who feel their need of him, and want help from him, imitate these blind men, and cry the more, otherwise they will fall short of a cure.
