  • a 16:4 - To leave absolutely, as ch. 21.17; John 8.9; Heb. 11.27.
  • b 16:6 - The Greek means, 'to fix one's mind on;' and the 'of' is 'because of,' 'in view of.' 'To attend so as to guard yourself from.' 'Beware of,' I believe, most nearly conveys it: so ver. 11.
  • c 16:9 - A round-plaited hand-basket for a journey.
  • d 16:10 - Larger than the 'hand-basket' in ver. 9. It is particularly a 'fish-basket.'
  • e 16:10 - See chs. 14.20 and 15.37.
  • f 16:13 - As ch. 15.21: see Note.
  • g 16:13 - Or 'questioned;' erotao: see Note, John 14.16.
  • h 16:14 - i.e. a 'different class.'
  • i 16:17 - 'Son of Jonas.'
  • j 16:18 - 'A stone.'
  • k 16:18 - Or 'gates of hades.' These words are rather in a remarkable manner without the article, giving the character of the power rather than a particular object before the mind.

  • m 16:28 - 'Who are such as:' see ch. 2.6. Or 'who indeed:' see Note, Luke 9.30.
