Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 16:19

_ _ when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas — as the leading persons.

_ _ and drew them into the market-place — or Forum, where the courts were.

_ _ to the magistrates, saying, etc. — We have here a full and independent confirmation of the reality of this supernatural cure, since on any other supposition such conduct would be senseless.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 16:16-24.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 16:19

(11) And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew [them] into the marketplace unto the rulers,

(11) Covetousness of evil gain and of profit is an occasion for persecuting the truth. In the meanwhile, God sparing Timothy, calls Paul and Silas as the stronger to battle.
