Luke 5Mt 4:18; Mr 1:16. Their net brake - Began to tear. Depart from me, for I am a sinful man - And therefore not worthy to be in thy presence. They forsook all and followed him - They had followed him before, John 1:43, but not so as to forsake all. Till now, they wrought at their ordinary calling. Mt 8:2; Mr 1:40. Lev 14:2. He withdrew - The expression in the original implies, that he did so frequently. Sitting by - As being more honourable than the bulk of the congregation, who stood. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them - To heal the sickness of their souls, as well as all bodily diseases. Mt 9:2; Mr 2:3. Not being able to bring him in through the multitude, they went round about by a back passage, and going up the stairs on the outside, they came upon the flat - roofed house, and let him down through the trap door, such as was on the top of most of the Jewish houses: doubtless, with such circumspection as the circumstances plainly required. We have seen strange things to. day - Sins forgiven, miracles wrought. Mt 9:9; Mr 2:14. Leaving all - His business and gain. And Levi made him a great entertainment - It was necessarily great, because of the great number of guests. Make prayers - Long and solemn. Mt 9:14; Mr 2:18. Can ye make - That is, is it proper to make men fast and mourn, during a festival solemnity? He spake also a parable - Taken from clothes and wine; therefore peculiarly proper at a feast. And no man having drunk old wine - And beside, men are not wont to be immediately freed from old prejudices.
