THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 26 - Verse 67

And buffeted him. That is, they struck him with their hands closed, or with the fist.

Others smote him with the palms of their hands. The word used in the original here means, literally to strike with rods. It also means, to strike the mouth with the open hand, as if to prevent a person's speaking, or to evince abhorrence of what he had spoken.

{i} "Then did" Isa 1:6 {1} "with the palms" or "rods"
