    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 5:40

    The father and the mother - Prudence required that they should be present, and be witnesses of the miracle.

    And them that were with him - That is, Peter, James, and John, Mark 5:37. It is remarkable that our Lord gave a particular preference to these three disciples, beyond all the rest, on three very important occasions:

    1. They were present at the transfiguration.

    2. At the raising of Jairus's daughter.

    3. At his agony in the garden of Gethsemane.

    Where the damsel was lying - Ανακειμενον, lying. This word is very doubtful. BDL, one other, Coptic, and later Arabic, with five of the Itala, omit it. Other MSS. express the same idea in five different words: Griesbach leaves it out of the text. See his Testament.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 5:40

    5:40 Them that were with him - Peter, James, and John.
