Definitions for Mark 9 :18

Cast - Worn-out; old; cast-off.

Clarke's Commentary on Mark 9 :18

Pineth away - By these continual torments; so he was not only deaf and dumb, but sorely tortured besides.

Barnes's Commentary on Mark 9 :18

And wheresoever - In whatever place - at home or abroad, alone or in public.

He teareth him - He rends, distracts, or throws him into convulsions.

He foameth - At the mouth, like a mad animal. Among us these would all be considered as marks of violent derangement or madness.

And pineth away - Becomes thin, haggard, and emaciated. This was the effect of the violence of his struggles, and perhaps of the want of food.

Wesley's Commentary on Mark 9 :18
