(Huck 13, 47; Aland 37, 87; Crook 61, 91)
וַיָּקָם מִבֵּית הַכְּנֶסֶת וַיִּכָּנֵס אֶל בֵּית שִׁמְעוֹן וַחֲמוֹת שִׁמְעוֹן הָיְתָה אֲחוּזַת חַמָּה וַיְּבַקְּשֻׁהוּ בַּעֲדָהּ וַיַּעֲמֹד עָלֶיהָ וַיִּגְעַר בַּחַמָּה וַתַּחַלְצָהּ וַתָּקָם וַתְּשַׁמְּשֵׁם
Upon leaving the synagogue, Yeshua went to Shimon’s home. Now, Shimon’s mother-in-law had taken ill with a fever. So they implored Yeshua to heal her. Standing over her, he spoke sharply to the fever. The fever vanished, and she got to her feet and began serving them.

The Healing of Shimon’s Mother-in-law, a tender story, is a unique glimpse of Jesus’ compassion. If Jesus had previously visited Simon’s home, perhaps regularly, or was staying with Simon, he already might have been acquainted with Simon’s mother-in-law, making the story even more poignant and touching.
