departeth from the LORD, Jer. xvii. 5. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident : for the just shall live by

faith. And the law is not of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree, Gal. iii. 10-13. But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned, Heb. vi. 8. See on chap. iii. ver. 12. clause 5. a What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he
that loveth not his brother whom he
hath seen, how can he love God whom
he hath not seen? 1 John iv. 20.
VER. 43.

Ξένος ἤμην, καὶ οὐ συνηγάγετέ με· γυμ
vὸς, καὶ οὐ περιεβάλετέ με· ἀσθενὴς καὶ ἐν
φυλακῇ, καὶ οὐκ ἐπεσκέψασθέ με.

I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. VER. 44.

Τότε ἀποκριθήσονται αὐτῷ καὶ αὐτοὶ, λέγοντες Κύριε, πότε σε εἴδομεν πεινῶντα, ἡ διψῶντα, ἢ ξένον, ἢ γυμνὸν, ἡ ἀσθενῆ, ἡ ἐν φυλακῇ, καὶ οὐ διηκονήσαμέν σοι ;

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

a But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? Luke x. 29.

VER. 45.

Τότε ἀποκριθήσεται αὐτοῖς, λέγων Αμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐφ' ὅσον οὐκ ἐποιήσατε ἑνὶ τούτων, τῶν ἐλαχίστων, οὐδὲ ἐμοὶ ἐσος

And that he might make known the
riches of his glory on the vessels of

God spared not the angels that sin,

delivered them into chains of dark-hears.

2 Pet. ii. 4. And the angels which
kept not their first estate, but left
their own habitation, he hath re-
served in everlasting chains under
darkness unto the judgment of the
great day, Jude 6. And there was
war in heaven: Michael and his an-

gels fought against the dragon; and
the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not; neither was their
place found any more in heaven. And
the great dragon was cast out, that
old serpent, called the Devil, and
Satan, which deceiveth the whole
world he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with
him, Rev. xii. 7—9.

VER. 42.

Επείνασα γὰρ, καὶ οὐκ ἐδώκατέ μοι φαγεῖν· ἐδίψησα, καὶ οὐκ ἐποτίσατέ με.

VER. 46.

Καὶ ἀπελεύσονται οὗτοι εἰς κόλασιν αἰώ νιον· οἱ δὲ δίκαιοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

a And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, shame and everlasting contempt, Dan, some to everlasting life, and some to xii. 2. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from

hence to you cannot; neither can they! pass to us that would come from thence, Luke xvi. 26. And shall come forth, they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation, John v. 29. Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the LORD, and from the glory of his power, 2 Thess. i. 9. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which

burneth with fire and brimstone : which is the second death, Rev. xxi. 8. See also on chap. iii. ver. 12. clause 5.

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear, Matt. xiii. 43. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore, Psal. xvi. 10, 11. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life, John iii. 16. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him, 36. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand, x. 27, 28. To them who, by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life, Rom. ii. 7. That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord, v. 21. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, vi. 23. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life, 1 John ii. 25. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life, v. 11, 12.

Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life, Jude 21.


Καὶ ἐγένετο, ὅτε ἐτέλεσεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς πάντας τοὺς λίγους τούτους, εἶπε τοῖς μαθηTats arou

And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

VER. 2.

Οἴδατε ὅτι μετὰ δύο ἡμέρας τὸ πάσχα γίνεται, καὶ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου παραδίδοται εἰς τὸ σταυρωθῆναι.

Ye a know that after two days is the feast of the Passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

a Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. And the Chief Priests and Scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people, Luke xxii. 1, 2. And he said unto them, With desire have I desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer, 15. Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end, John xiii. 1.

b And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste it is the LORD's Passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever, Exod. xii. 1114. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Seven days shall there be

[blocks in formation]

no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut of from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread, 18-20. Seven

days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD. Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, in all thy quarters. And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt, xiii. 6-8. Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of Passover be left unto the morning, xxxiv. 25. And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of the Lord. And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten, Num. xxviii. 16, 17. Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the Passover unto the Loup thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place

his name there. Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life. And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning, Deut. xvi. 1-4. And the Jews' Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, John ii. 13. And the Jews' Passover was nigh at hand, and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves, xi. 55. See on chap. xx. ver. 18, and 19.

A. D. 33.

Τότε συνήχθησαν οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς, καὶ οἱ γραμματεῖς, καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ λαοῦ εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τοῦ ἀρχιερέως τοῦ λεγομένου Kaïápa

a Then assembled together the Chief Priests, and the Scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the High Priest, who was called Caiaphas.

a See on chap. xii. ver. 14.

b But Peter followed him afar off unto the High Priest's palace, and, went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end, ver. 58.

And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the High Priest, where the Scribes and the elders were assembled, ver. 57. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the High Priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, John xi. 49. And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the High Priest that same year. Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people, xviii. 13, 14. Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the High Priest, 24.

a And when the Chief Priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them. But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet, Matt. xxi. 45, 46. Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, Psal. ii. 1, 2. They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul, lvi. 6. That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them? They search out iniquities; they accom

plish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart is deep, lxiv. 46. Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood, xciv. 20, 21. But I was like a lamb, or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, say ing, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered, Jer. xi. 19.


b Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Matt. xxiii. 33. same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live, Acts vii. 19. And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? xiii. 10. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ, 2 Cor. xi. 3.

VER. 5.

*Ελεγον δὲ, Μὴ ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ, ἵνα μὴ θόρυβος γένηται ἐν τῷ λαῷ.

But they said, a Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people. a Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain, Psal. lxxvi. 10. There are many devices in a man's heart: nevertheless the counsel of the LoRD, that shall stand, Prov. xix. 21. There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD, xxi. 30. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure, Isa. xlvi. 10. Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the LORD commandeth it not? Lam. iii. 37. But they said, not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people, Mark xiv. 2.

a There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

a And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment, Luke vii. 37, 38. VER. 8.

For ye have the poor always with you; b but me ye have not always. a For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land, Deut. xv. 11. For ye have the with you always, and whensoever will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always, Mark xiv. 7. For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always, John xii. 8. Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do, Gal. ii. 10. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 1 John iii. 17.

b Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you, John xiii. 33. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me because I live, ye shall live also, xiv. 19. But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? xvi. 5. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father, 28. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee.

Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this, John xii. 7. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
