    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 4:36

    They took him even as he was in the ship - That is, the disciples; he was now εν τῳ πλοιῳ, in the boat, i.e. his own boat which usually waited on him, and out of which it appears he was then teaching the people. There were several others there which he might have gone in, had this one not been in the place. The construction of this verse is exceedingly difficult; the meaning appears to be this: - The disciples sailed off with him just as he was in the boat out of which he had been teaching the people; and they did not wait to provide any accommodations for the passage. This I believe to be the meaning of the inspired penman.

    Barnes' Notes on Mark 4:36

    Even as he was in the ship - They took him without making any preparation for the voyage; without providing any food or raiment. He was sitting in a ship, or boat, instructing the people. In the same boat, probably ill fitted to encounter a storm on the lake, they sailed. This would render their danger more imminent and the miracle more striking.

    There were with him other little ships - Belonging probably to the people, who, seeing him sail, resolved to follow him.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 4:36

    4:36 They take him as he was in the vessel - They carried him immediately in the same vessel from which he had been preaching to the people.
