9那时人要把你们送去受苦,也要杀害你们,你们要因我的名被万民恨恶。
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
9 Verse 9. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted]

Rather, Then they will deliver you up to affliction, ειςθλιψιν.

By a bold figure of speech, affliction is here personified. They

are to be delivered into affliction's own hand, to be harassed by

all the modes of inventive torture.



Ye shall be hated of all nations] Both Jew and Gentile will

unite in persecuting and tormenting you. Perhaps παντωντωνεθνων

means all the Gentiles, as in the parallel places in ,

and in ,

the Jewish persecution is mentioned distinctly. Ye shall be

delivered up to COUNCILS and be beaten in SYNAGOGUES, and ye shall

stand before governors and kings for my name's sake-be not

anxiously careful beforehand what ye shall speak-for ye are not

the speakers, but the Holy Spirit will speak by you-I will give

you utterance and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be

able to contradict or resist. We need go no farther than the Acts

of the Apostles for the completion of these particulars. Some

were delivered to councils, as Peter and John, . Some were

brought before rulers and kings, as Paul before Gallio, ,

before Felix, Acts 24, before Festus and Agrippa, Acts 25. Some

had utterance and wisdom which their adversaries were not able to

resist: so Stephen, , and Paul, who made even Felix

himself tremble, .

Some were imprisoned, as Peter and John, .

Some were beaten, as Paul and Silas, .

Some were put to death, as Stephen, ,

and James the brother of John, .

But if we look beyond the book of the Acts of the Apostles, to the

bloody persecutions under Nero, we shall find these predictions

still more amply fulfilled: in these, numberless Christians fell,

besides those two champions of the faith Peter and Paul. And it

was, as says Tertullian, nominis praelium, a war against the very

name of Christ; for he who was called Christian had committed

crime enough, in bearing the name, to be put to death. So true

were our Saviour's words, that they should be hated of all men for

his NAME'S sake.



But they were not only to be hated by the Gentiles, but they

were to be betrayed by apostates.
