34  Then looking up into heaven, He sighed, and said to him, "Ephphatha,"that is, "Be opened."

34  And gazing up to heaven, he groaned and said to him: “Ephphatha,” which is, “Be opened.”

34  And he looked up to heaven, and sighed, and he said to him, Ethpatakh, which means, Be opened.

35  Immediately his ears were opened, and the bond of his tongue was loosed, and he was speaking correctly.

35  And his ears were opened, and the bond of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

35  And in that very hour his ears were opened, and the knot of his tongue was loosened, and he spoke plainly.

36  And He ordered them that they should tell no one; but the more He ordered them, the more exceedingly they would proclaim it.

36  And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it.

36  And he instructed them not to tell anyone. But as much as he instructed them, so much more did they preach about it.

37  And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

37  And so much more did they wonder, saying: “He has done all things well. He has caused both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”
