Wesley's Notes for Matthew 26:42


26:41 The spirit - Your spirit: ye yourselves. The flesh - Your nature. How gentle a rebuke was this, and how kind an apology! especially at a time when our Lord's own mind was so weighed down with sorrow.


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".
