Wesley's Notes for Acts 28:5


28:5 Having shaken off the venomous animal, he suffered no harm - The words of an eminent modern historian are, No venomous kind of serpent now breeds in Malta, neither hurts if it be brought thither from another place. Children are seen there handling and playing even with scorpions; I have seen one eating them. If this be so, it seems to be fixed by the wisdom of God, as an eternal memorial of what he once wrought there.
