    Definitions for Matthew 17:18

    Devil - Slanderer; false accuser.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 17:18

    Jesus rebuked the devil - Deprived him of all power to torment the child; and obliged him to abandon his present usurped habitation.

    There are some souls whose cure God reserves to himself alone, and to whom all the applications of his ministers appear to be utterly ineffectual. He sometimes does all without them, that they may know they can never do any good without him. Quesnel.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 17:18

    And Jesus rebuked the devil - The word "rebuke" has the combined force of reproving and commanding. He reproved him for having afflicted the child, and he commanded him to come out of him. Mark Mar 9:25 has recorded the words which he used words implying reproof and command: "Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee come out of him, and enter no more into him." And the spirit cried, and with a mighty convulsion came out, leaving the child apparently dead. Jesus lifted him up by the hand (Mark), and gave him to his father (Luke).
