Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
but when he saw how the multitude were fatigued and dispers'd like so many sheep without their Pastors, he was moved with compassion, and said to his disciples,
Then Jesus called his disciples, and said to them, I am concern'd for this people; they have attended me now three days, without eating: I will not send them away fasting, lest they saint by the way. but his disciples said to him,
so that when Jesus landed, he found there a numerous assembly: which rais'd his compassion, because they were like so many sheep straggling without a pastor. whereupon he gave them various instructions.
At that time, as the company were very numerous, and had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples, and said,
it has frequently thrown him into the fire, and into the water, to the hazard of his life; if therefore you can do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
when the Lord saw her, he was moved with compassion for her, and said to her, don't weep.
as he drew nigh, he beheld the city, and bewail'd its fate,
when Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping who came with her, he sighed from his heart, and was troubled,
whence it was necessary he should be in all things like his brethren; that he might be a merciful high priest, and faithfully discharge the divine office of expiating the sins of the people.
not an high priest who is incapable of compassionating our miseries; since he was exposed to the same trials as we are, sin only excepted. let
he might have the greater compassion for those who sin through ignorance or mistake. and for the same reason
where a great multitude followed him, invited by the miraculous cures which they saw him perform.
