Life of Jesus
Simon Peter's Wife's Mother Lay Sick
Mat 8:14-17; Mk 1:29-34; Lk 4:38-41
14 Now when Jesus had come into Peter's house, He saw his wife's mother lying
sick with a fever.
15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them.
16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And
He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,
17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: "He
Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses."
29 Now as soon as they had come out of the synagogue, they entered the house of
Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her
31 So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the
fever left her. And she served them.
32 Now at evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick
and those who were demon-possessed.
33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door.
34 Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many
demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
38 Now He arose from the synagogue and entered Simon's house. But Simon's wife's
mother was sick with a high fever, and they made request of Him concerning her.
39 So He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately
she arose and served them.
40 When the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various
diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and
41 And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, "You are the Christ,
the Son of God!" And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they
knew that He was the Christ.
