Luke 22:60 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:60

And Peter said, man, I know not what thou sayest
Suggesting, that he was so far from being a follower of Jesus, or a disciple of his, and from having any personal acquaintance with him, that he did not know what he was talking of, or at least could not understand what he meant by this harangue, or by talking after this manner about him; and then began to curse and swear, and wish the most dreadful things to befall him, if he knew any thing of Jesus of Nazareth: and immediately while he yet spake:
in this shocking manner, with his mouth full of oaths, curses, and imprecations: the cock crew;
the second time, ( Mark 14:72 ) .

58 A short time later, someone else noticed him and said, "You're one of them." But Peter denied it: "Man, I am not."
59 About an hour later, someone else spoke up, really adamant: "He's got to have been with him! He's got 'Galilean' written all over him."
60 Peter said, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about." At that very moment, the last word hardly off his lips, a rooster crowed.
61 Just then, the Master turned and looked at Peter. Peter remembered what the Master had said to him: "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times."
62 He went out and cried and cried and cried.
