This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 7:30. Ἀπελθοῦσα, departing) in faith.-εὗρε τὴν θυγατέρα βεβλημένην ἐπὶ τῆς κλίνης, καὶ τὸ δαιμόνιον ἐξεληλυθός) See App. Crit. Ed. ii. on this passage.[53] The position of the daughter lying on the bed was showing the great power of the demon, which had taken possession of the girl; and also the greater power of Jesus, who had expelled it. The daughter had previously been deprived of all rest. The mother, however, did not of course find the demon itself, which had gone out; but she found that the demon had gone out, i.e. that such was the state of affairs. The force of the verb, found, rests rather on the participle, ἐξεληλυθὸς, than on the noun, ΤῸ ΔΑΙΜΌΝΙΟΝ.

[53] τὸ παίδιον βεβλημένον ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην καὶ τὸ δαιμ. ἐξελ. is the reading of BLΔ. Τὴν θυγατὲρα βεβλ. is substituted by D Vulg. bc. Aa support Rec. Text, τὸ δαιμόνιον ἐξεληλυθὸς, καὶ τὴν θυγατέρα βεβλημένην ἐπὶ τῆς κλινης.-ED. and TRANSL.
