People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:42


Mt 26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed. "More earnestly", says Luke, who adds the account of the bloody sweat (Lu 22:44). His agony returned on him. The continuance of the trial he accepts as God's answer to the petition, "Let this cup pass from me" (Mt 26:39). Now he asks only, "Thy will be done".

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!
