Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:1-4.


Acts 2:2

_ _ And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, etc. — “The whole description is so picturesque and striking that it could only come from an eye-witness” [Olshausen]. The suddenness, strength, and diffusiveness of the sound strike with deepest awe the whole company, and thus complete their preparation for the heavenly gift. Wind was a familiar emblem of the Spirit (Ezekiel 37:9; John 3:8; John 20:22). But this was not a rush of actual wind. It was only a sound “as of” it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 2:2

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven — So will the Son of man come to judgment. And it filled all the house — That is, all that part of the temple where they were sitting.
