12Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
12 Verse 12. The Pharisees were offended] None so liable to take
offence as formalists and hypocrites, when you attempt to take
away the false props from the one, and question the sincerity of
the other. Besides, a Pharisee must never be suspected of
ignorance, for they are the men, and wisdom must die with them!
