“But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.”
King James Version (KJV)
19:14 But his citizens - Such were those of Jerusalem, hated him, and sent an embassy after him - The word seems to imply, their sending ambassadors to a superior court, to enter their protest against his being admitted to the regal power. In such a solemn manner did the Jews protest, as it were, before God, that Christ should not reign over them: this man - So they call him in contempt.
Lu 19:14 His citizens hated him. The Jews. After his departure, they still refused to have him for king.
