18你们为我的缘故,也要被带到统治者和君王面前,向他们和外族人作见证。
18And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
18 Verse 18. Ye shall be brought before governors, &c.] "This

affords a striking proof of the prescience of Christ. Who could

have thought, at that time, that these despised and illiterate

men could excite so much attention, and be called upon to

apologize for the profession of their faith before the tribunals

of the most illustrious personages of the earth ?" Wakefield.



By governors and kings we may understand, the Roman proconsuls,

governors of provinces, and the kings who were tributary to the

Roman government, and the emperors themselves, before whom many of

the primitive Christians were brought.



For a testimony against them and the Gentiles.] That is, to

render testimony, both to Jews and Gentiles, of the truth and

power of my Gospel.
