20因为说话的不是你们,而是你们的父的灵,是他在你们里面说话。
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
20 Verse 20. For it is-the Spirit of your Father, &c.] This was

an extraordinary promise, and was literally fulfilled to those

first preachers of the Gospel; and to them it was essentially

necessary, because the New Testament dispensation was to be fully

opened by their extraordinary inspiration. In a certain measure,

it may be truly said, that the Holy Spirit animates the true

disciples of Christ, and enables them to speak. The Head speaks

in his members, by his Spirit; and it is the province of the

Spirit of God to speak for God. Neither surprise, defect of

talents, nor even ignorance itself, could hurt the cause of God,

in the primitive times, when the hearts and minds of those Divine

men were influenced by the Holy Spirit.



Your Father] This is added to excite and increase their

confidence in God.
