    Definitions for Mark 6:56

    Besought - Entreated; asked; called.
    Whithersoever - Wherever.

    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 6:56

    Villages - Probably small towns near cities.

    Country - Villages at a distance from cities and large public towns. See the notes on Matthew 14:34-36 (note).

    Christ went about doing good - he confined his ministry and miracles to no place - wherever he went, they stood in need of his help; and whenever they required his assistance, they had it granted immediately. Our Lord's conduct, in these respects, is a perfect pattern for every preacher of his Gospel.
