Wesley's Notes for Matthew 26:73


26:73 Surely thou art also one of them, for thy speech discovereth thee - Malchus might have brought a stronger proof than this. But such is the overruling providence of God, that the world, in the height of their zeal, commonly catch hold of the very weakest of all arguments against the children of God.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:73


Mt 26:73 Thou also art [one] of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee. Matthew says, "After awhile"; Luke says, "About an hour after" (Lu 22:59). John says that the third charge was made by a kinsman of Malchus, who asserted that he saw Peter in the garden (Joh 18:26). Mark says that they accused him of having a Galilean brogue (Mr 14:70). As most of the disciples of Jesus were Galileans, this draws attention to Peter. Different districts had their dialects, as in England, or the United States.
