Reference: Fever


(De 28:22; Mt 8:14; Mr 1:30; Joh 4:52; Ac 28:8), a burning heat, as the word so rendered denotes, which attends all febrile attacks. In all Eastern countries such diseases are very common. Peter's wife's mother is said to have suffered from a "great fever" (Lu 4:38), an instance of Luke's professional exactitude in describing disease. He adopts here the technical medical distinction, as in those times fevers were divided into the "great" and the "less."

The words in the originals imply 'a burning heat,' so that there is no doubt that what is commonly known as 'fever' is intended. De 28:22; Mt 8:14-15; Lu 4:38-39; Joh 4:52; Ac 28:8. The same Hebrew word is translated BURNING AGUE in Le 26:16.
