Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:11-14.


Acts 21:13

_ _ Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart — Beautiful union of manly resoluteness and womanly tenderness, alike removed from mawkishness and stoicism!

_ _ I am ready not to be bound only — “If that is all, let it come.”

_ _ but to die, etc. — It was well he could add this, for he had that also to do.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:8-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 21:13

Breaking my heart — For the apostles themselves were not void of human affections. I am ready not only to be bound, but to die — And to him that is ready for it, the burden is light.
