Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 17:5-9

_ _ the Jews ... moved with envy — seeing their influence undermined by this stranger.

_ _ lewd fellows of the baser sort — better, perhaps, “worthless market people,” that is, idle loungers about the market-place, of indifferent character.

_ _ gathered a company — rather, “having raised a mob.”

_ _ assaulted the house of Jason — with whom Paul and Silas abode (Acts 17:7), one of Paul’s kinsmen, apparently (Romans 16:21), and from his name, which was sometimes used as a Greek form of the word Joshua [Grotius], probably a Hellenistic Jew.

_ _ sought to bring them — Jason’s lodgers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 17:5

(3) But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain (a) lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.

(3) Although the zeal of the unfaithful seems ever so virtuous, yet at length it is found to have neither truth nor fairness. Yet the wicked cannot do what they wish, for even among themselves God stirs up some, whose help he uses for the deliverance of his own.

(a) Certain companions which do nothing but walk the streets, wicked men, to be hired for every man's money to do any mischief, such as we commonly call the rabble and very cesspools and dunghill knaves of all towns and cities.
