Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:14


10:14 Shake off the dust from your feet - The Jews thought the land of Israel so peculiarly holy, that when they came home from any heathen country, they stopped at the borders and shook or wiped off the dust of it from their feet, that the holy land might not be polluted with it. Therefore the action here enjoined was a lively intimation, that those Jews who had rejected the Gospel were holy no longer, but were on a level with heathens and idolaters.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:14


Mt 10:14 Shake off the dust of your feet. This was done when there was a positive rejection of the gospel. It was a symbolical act, signifying that all responsibility for the stubborn household or city had ended. Compare Mr 6:11 Lu 9:5 Ac 13:51. Nor can the gospel be forced upon an unwilling people in any age.

    MATTHEW 10:19 BUT WHEN THEY DELIVER YOU UP TAKE NO THOUGHT HOW OR WHAT YOU SHALL SPEAK FOR IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU IN THAT SAME HOUR WHAT YOU SHALL SPEAK *** 10:20 FOR IT IS NOT YOU THAT SPEAK BUT THE SPIRIT OF YOUR FATHER WHICH SPEAKETH IN YOU

    The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and His ears are open to their prayers but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. He that committeth sin is of the devil. For the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not.
