28那些杀身体却不能杀灵魂的,不要怕他们;倒要怕那位能把灵魂和身体都投入地狱里的。
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
28 Verse 28. Fear not them which kill the body] των

αποκτεινοντων. Those who slay with acts of cruelty, alluding

probably to the cruelties which persecutors should exercise on his

followers in their martyrdom. But are not able to kill the soul.

Hence we find that the body and the soul are distinct principles,

for the body may be slain and the soul escape; and, secondly, that

the soul is immaterial, for the murderers of the body are not

able, μηδυναμενων, have it not in their power, to injure it.



Fear him] It is, not hell-fire we are to fear, but it is God;

without the stroke of whose justice hell itself would be no

punishment, and whose frown would render heaven itself

insupportable. What strange blindness is it to expose our souls

to endless ruin, which should enjoy God eternally; and to save and

pamper the body, by which we enjoy nothing but the creatures, and

them only for a moment!
