Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 21:34

_ _ some cried one thing — The difficulty would be so to state his crimes as to justify their proceedings to a Roman officer.

_ _ to be carried into the castle — rather, perhaps, “the barracks,” or that part of the fortress of Antonia appropriated to the soldiers. The fort was built by Herod on a high rock at the northwest corner of the great temple area, and called after Mark Antony.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
