———
a Lit., the spirit itself is the one that cries out as it seizes him.
b Gr. μόγις ἀποχωρεῖ, meaning it separates with difficulty. The father's perception here may be that the violent convulsions are the spirit struggling to free itself (as though the boy is sticky—which may be why the spirit screams).
c Sufferers of grand mal seizures, that is, tonic-clonic seizures (muscle rigidity followed by convulsions), describe feeling utterly depleted following a seizure.
