Acts 1:11

_ _ Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven, etc. — “as if your now glorified Head were gone from you never to return: He is coming again; not another, but ‘this same Jesus’; and ‘as ye have seen Him go, in the like manner shall He come’ — as personally, as visibly, as gloriously; and let the joyful expectation of this coming swallow up the sorrow of that departure.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 1:6-11.
