“In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away - That is, when he was a man, he had no justice shown him. To take away a person's judgment, is a proverbial phrase for oppressing him. And who shall declare, or count his generation - That is, who can number his seed, #Isa 53:10|; which he hath purchased by laying down his life?
Ac 8:33 His judgment was taken away. Justice was trampled under foot. Who shall declare his generation? Meyer, De Wette, Robinson and Hackett all agree that this refers to portraying the wickedness of the generation which slew him. Others insist that it means Christ's spiritual posterity, his followers.
