And he turned him unto his disciples
Both to the twelve apostles, and seventy disciples;
and said privately;
or to them apart: the phrase "privately" is wanting in the Vulgate Latin version:
blessed are the eyes that see the things that ye see;
the person of the Messiah, his kingdom setting up in the world, miracles wrought by him, and Satan falling before him; (See Gill on Matthew 13:16).
