    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' Notes 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.
