Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 11:23

_ _ when he ... had seen the grace of God — in the new converts.

_ _ was glad — owned and rejoiced in it at once as divine, though they were uncircumcised.

_ _ exhorted them all that with purpose of heart — as opposed to a hasty and fickle discipleship.

_ _ they would cleave unto the Lord — the Lord Jesus.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
