Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 10:46-47

_ _ heard them speak with tongues and magnify God — As on the day of Pentecost it was no empty miracle, no mere speaking of foreign languages, but utterance of “the wonderful works of God” in tongues to them unknown (Acts 2:11), so here; but more remarkable in this case, as the speakers were perhaps less familiar with the Old Testament songs of praise.

_ _ Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water ... which have received the Holy Ghost, etc. — Mark, he does not say, They have received the Spirit, what need have they for water? but, Having the living discipleship imparted to them and visibly stamped upon them, what objection can there be to admitting them, by the seal of baptism, into the full fellowship of the Church?

_ _ which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we — and are thus, in all that is essential to salvation, on a level with ourselves.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
