See commentary on Acts 2:37-40.


Acts 2:40

_ _ with many other words did he testify and exhort — Thus we have here but a summary of Peter’s discourse; though from the next words it would seem that only the more practical parts, the home appeals, are omitted.

_ _ Save yourselves from this untoward generation — as if Peter already foresaw the hopeless impenitence of the nation at large, and would have his hearers hasten in for themselves and secure their own salvation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:37-41.
