Mark 7:32 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments
§ 68. HEALING DEAFNESS AND IMPEDIMENT, Mar 7:31-37 .
32. One that was deaf That had become so since his birth and learning to speak. An impediment in his speech A defect of utterance, as some think, which had grown upon him from not hearing his own voice, as is often the case. It was more probably a tongue tie in addition to his deafness, as appears by the description of the cure in Mar 7:35.
