Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 22:16

_ _ be baptized and wash away thy sins — This way of speaking arises from baptism being the visible seal of remission.

_ _ calling on the name of the Lord — rather, “having called,” that is, after having done so; referring to the confession of Christ which preceded baptism, as Acts 8:37.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 22:3-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 22:16

Be baptized, and wash away thy sins — Baptism administered to real penitents, is both a means and seal of pardon. Nor did God ordinarily in the primitive Church bestow this on any, unless through this means.
