Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:5-11.


Acts 2:9-11

_ _ Parthians, etc. — Beginning with the farthest east, the Parthians, the enumeration proceeds farther and farther westward till it comes to Judea; next come the western countries, from Cappadocia to Pamphylia; then the southern, from Egypt to Cyrene; finally, apart from all geographical consideration, Cretes and Arabians are placed together. This enumeration is evidently designed to convey an impression of universality [Baumgarten].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:5-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Cretans — One island seems to be mentioned for all. The wonderful works of God — Probably those which related to the miracles, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ, together with the effusion of his Spirit, as a fulfilment of his promises, and the glorious dispensations of Gospel grace.
