Matthew 22:22

Matthew 22:22

When they had heard these words
This answer returned unto them, this advice which was given them, which they could not gainsay or deny to be good,

they marvelled:
were amazed and astonished, at his prudence and wisdom, in answering them, in such an unexpected and cautious manner:

they left him:
being silenced, confounded, and disappointed:

and went their way:
not being able to get any advantage against him, neither to bring him into contempt with the people, and alienate their affections from him; nor to charge him with sedition or treason to the Roman governor; and so had but a very indifferent account of their success, to report to them that sent them.
