Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 16:39-40

_ _ And they came — in person.

_ _ and besought them — not to complain of them. What a contrast this suppliant attitude of the preachers of Philippi to the tyrannical air with which they had the day before treated the preachers! (See Isaiah 60:14; Revelation 3:9).

_ _ brought them out — conducted them forth from the prison into the street, as insisted on.

_ _ and desired — “requested.”

_ _ them to depart out of the city — perhaps fearing again to excite the populace.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
