And he stood over her and subdued the fever, and it left her, and immediately she got up and began to serve them. Bible see other translations

“subdued.” The Greek word translated “subdued” is epitimaō (#2008 ἐπιτιμάω), and this is the technical sense of the word as it was used in Greek religion for taking control over a spirit. Robert Guelich notes that epitimaō is “a commanding word uttered by God or by his spokesman, by which evil powers are brought into submission.”a Jesus subdued the fever by the power of God, which was expressed in words. See commentary on Mark 1:25.
