    Definitions for Mark 2:21

    Rent - Divided; broke or tore apart.

    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 2:21

    No man - seweth - See Matthew 9:16. No man seweth a piece of unscoured cloth upon an old garment. In the common editions this verse begins with και, and, but this is omitted by almost every MS. and version of note. The construction of the whole verse is various in the MSS. The translation given here, and in Matthew 9:16, is intelligible, and speaks for itself.
