Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 19:24-26.


Acts 19:26

_ _ ye see and hear — The evidences of it were to be seen, and the report of it was in everybody’s mouth.

_ _ that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath ... turned away much people — Noble testimony this to the extent of Paul’s influence!

_ _ saying that they be no gods which are made with hands — The universal belief of the people was that they were gods, though the more intelligent regarded them only as habitations of Deity, and some, probably, as mere aids to devotion. It is exactly so in the Church of Rome.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 19:21-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 19:26

Saying, that they are not gods which are made with hands — This manifestly shows, that the contrary opinion did then generally prevail, namely, that there was a real Divinity in their sacred images. Though some of the later heathens spoke of them just as the Romanists do now.
