Moved with Compassion

And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. Matt.14:14.

Moved with compassion, splanchnizomai- Strong’s # 4697. To be moved with deep compassion or pity. The Greeks regarded the bowls (splancha) as the place where strong and powerful emotions originated.

Often in deliverance a person will double over and speak of a pain in their stomach, after healing has come the pain is lifted. Healing for ones emotion is clearly called for.

The Hebrews regarded splancha as the place where tender mercies and feelings of affection, compassion, sympathy, and pity originated. This emotion is the direct motive for at least five of Jesus’ miracles.
