THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 7 - Verse 19

Verse 19. Did not Moses give you the law? This they admitted, and on this they prided themselves. Every violation of that law they considered as deserving of death. They had accused Jesus of violating it because he had healed a man on the Sabbath, and for that they had sought his life, Joh 5:10-16. He here recalls that charge to their recollection, and shows them that, though they pretended great reverence for that law, yet they were really its violators in having sought his life.

None of you, &c. None of you Jews. They had sought to kill him. This was a pointed and severe charge, and shows the great faithfulness with which he was accustomed to proclaim the truth.

Why go ye about to kill me? Why do ye seek to kill me? See Joh 5:16.

{m} "Moses" Joh 1:17; Ga 3:19 {n} "none of you" Ro 3:10-19 {o} "to kill me" Mt 12:14; Joh 5:16,18
