The mute demoniac speaks (Mt 9:32-9:33)

“As they were going along,

They brought to him

A demoniac

Who was mute.

When the demon

Had been cast out,

The one who had been mute

Spoke.

The crowds were amazed.

Saying.

‘Never was anything

Like this been seen

In Israel.’”

 

Αὐτῶν δὲ ἐξερχομένων, ἰδοὺ προσήνεγκαν αὐτῷ κωφὸν δαιμονιζόμενον.

αὶ ἐκβληθέντος τοῦ δαιμονίου ἐλάλησεν ὁ κωφός. καὶ ἐθαύμασαν οἱ ὄχλοι λέγοντες Οὐδέποτε ἐφάνη οὕτως ἐν τῷ Ἰσραήλ.

 

There is something similar to this in chapter 12:22-23 of Matthew and Luke, chapter 11:14.  Once again, Jesus and his disciples were going along their way (Αὐτῶν δὲ ἐξερχομένων) when someone brought a mute or non-speaking demoniac person to Jesus (ἰδοὺ προσήνεγκαν αὐτῷ κωφὸν δαιμονιζόμενον).  Jesus then cast out the demon from this man (αὶ ἐκβληθέντος τοῦ δαιμονίου).  Then this mute person began to speak (ἐλάλησεν ὁ κωφός).  The crowds marveled or were amazed or in awe at this happening (καὶ ἐθαύμασαν οἱ ὄχλοι).  They said that nothing like this had ever happened in Israel (λέγοντες Οὐδέποτε ἐφάνη οὕτως ἐν τῷ Ἰσραήλ).  However, in chapter 8:28-33, Matthew had Jesus cast out demons from the demoniacs and send them into the pigs.
