Wesley's Notes for John 11:33


11:33 He groaned - So he restrained his tears. So he stopped them soon after, #John 11:38|. He troubled himself - An expression amazingly elegant, and full of the highest propriety. For the affections of Jesus were not properly passions, but voluntary emotions, which were wholly in his own power. And this tender trouble which he now voluntarily sustained, was full of the highest order and reason.


People's Bible Notes for John 11:33


Joh 11:33,34 He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled. The Greek word "embrimaomai", rendered "groaned" here, undoubtedly means "was moved with indignation", and is so rendered in the margin of the Revised Version. Jesus was deeply moved by the grief of Mary, but the hypocritical weeping of the Jews who followed her, and who were acting according to the rules, filled him with indignation.
