that he entred into the fynagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered. 7. And the Scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the fabbath-day : that they might find an accusation against him. 8. But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the mids. And he arose, and stood forth. 9. Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing, Is it lawful on the sabbath-days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? 10. And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did fo: and his hand was restored whole as the other. 11. And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

(1) The Word here translated Prayer, likewise signifies an House or Place appointed or fet apart for Prayer. Such were the Synagogues among the Jews, and the Oratories and Churches among Christians. These were often built in the Fields, and by Rivers, as well as Towns, &c. And it is highly probable that it was

into one of these Places or Houses of Prayer dedicated to God, that our Lord went, and continued all Night, which he spent in Meditation and Prayer. 'Dr. Whitby thinks that the Words, 44. 16.13. which we translate, Where Prayer was wont to be made, should be rendred, where there was by Law or Cuftor, an Oratory, or House of Prayer, for the Jews and Profelytes.
