Bible Commentary for Matthew 14:23

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 14:23


14:22 He constrained his disciples - Who were unwilling to leave him. #Mark 6:45|; John 6:15.

14:24 In the evening - Learned men say the Jews reckoned two evenings; the first beginning at three in the afternoon, the second, at sunset. If so, the latter is meant here.

14:25 The fourth watch - The Jews (as well as the Romans) usually divided the night into four watches, of three hours each. The first watch began at six, the second at nine, the third at twelve, the fourth at three in the morning. If it be thou - It is the same as, Since it is thou. The particle if frequently bears this meaning, both in ours and in all languages. So it means, #John 13:14|,17. St. Peter was in no doubt, or he would not have quitted the ship.
