neither any thing hid, that shall not be made known, and come abroad;
for what had been whispered to them, in the most secret and silent manner, was to come abroad not only in Judea, but in all the world, and to be published upon the house tops; (See Gill on Matthew 10:26) (See Gill on Matthew 10:27)
