And wheresoever he shall go in
Into whatsoever house he shall enter, go in after him:
and say ye to the good man of the house;
the owner, and master of it, who might be Nicodemus, or Joseph of Arimathea, or some man of note and wealth in Jerusalem, that might have some knowledge of Christ, and faith in him, though he did not openly profess him; since by only saying what follows, he would at once, as he did, direct them to a suitable and convenient room;

the chamber provided for guests that might be expected at the passover:
where I shall eat the passover with my
where it might be done conveniently, and in a proper and comfortable manner; (See Gill on Matthew 26:18).
