Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 21:11-14

_ _ So shall the Jews bind the man that owneth this girdle, etc. — For though the Romans did it, it was at the Jews’ instigation (Acts 21:33; Acts 28:17). Such dramatic methods of announcing important future events would bring the old prophets to remembrance. (Compare Isaiah 20:2, etc.; Jeremiah 13:1, and Ezekiel 5:1, etc.). This prediction and that at Tyre (Acts 21:4) were intended, not to prohibit him from going, but to put his courage to the test and when he stood the test, to deepen and mature it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 21:11

Binding his own feet and hands — In the manner that malefactors were wont to be bound when apprehended. So shall the Jews bind the man whose girdle this is — St. Paul's bonds were first particularly foretold at Cesarea, to which he afterward came in bonds, Acts 23:33.
