Wesley's Notes for Matthew 26:34


26:34 Before cock crowing thou wilt deny me thrice - That is, before three in the morning, the usual time of cock crowing: although one cock was heard to crow once, after Peter's first denial of his Lord.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:34


Mt 26:34,35 Thou shalt deny me thrice. The first cock crow was about twelve at night. The second about three o'clock. Before this the three-fold denial would occur. Peter and the disciples were sincere, but knew not their own weakness.

    "Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her." While sitting among the true disciples, and beholding how the righteous and wise really love the Lord; what liars and hypocrites the hater's of the Lord are, with their self righteous indignation! But God honors the poor in spirit!

    Knowing what I know now about God's word, the KJV Bible - that it IS God-breathed, inviable, and not the ideas of man about what and who he thinks God is: I would NEVER say there was a 'mistake' in it, of spelling or what is said. I have for myself, proven the inerrancy of God's Word. It all, O.T. and N.T., works together as ONE story - just as God is one, not three.
