Mark 1:22-24 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 The people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes. 23 [a]In their synagogue was a man with an unclean spirit; 24 [b]he cried out, “What have you to do with us,[c] Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”

Footnotes:

  1. 1:23 An unclean spirit: so called because of the spirit’s resistance to the holiness of God. The spirit knows and fears the power of Jesus to destroy his influence; cf. Mk 1:32, 34; 3:11; 6:13.
  2. 1:24–25 The Holy One of God: not a confession but an attempt to ward off Jesus’ power, reflecting the notion that use of the precise name of an opposing spirit would guarantee mastery over him. Jesus silenced the cry of the unclean spirit and drove him out of the man.
  3. 1:24 What have you to do with us?: see note on Jn 2:4.
