31 ¶ When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
31 Verse 31. When the Son of man shall come] This must be
understood of Christ's coming at the last day, to judge mankind:
though all the preceding part of the chapter may be applied also
to the destruction of Jerusalem.
Holy angels] The word αγιοι is omitted by many excellent
manuscripts, versions, and fathers. Mill and Bengel approve of
the omission, and Griesbach has left it out of the text. It is
supposed by some that our Lord will have other angels (messengers)
with him in that day, besides the holy ones. The evil angels may
be in attendance to take, as their prey, those who shall be found
on his left hand.
The throne of his glory] That glorious throne on which his
glorified human nature is seated, at the right hand of the Father.
