Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 25:7

_ _ the Jews ... from Jerusalem — clamorously, as at Jerusalem; see Acts 25:24.

_ _ many and grievous complaints against Paul — From his reply, and Festus’ statement of the case before Agrippa, these charges seem to have been a jumble of political and religious matter which they were unable to substantiate, and vociferous cries that he was unfit to live. Paul’s reply, not given in full, was probably little more than a challenge to prove any of their charges, whether political or religious.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 25:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 25:7

Bringing many accusations — When many accusations are heaped together, frequently not one of them is true.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 25:7

And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which (a) they could not prove.

(a) They could not prove them certainly and without undoubted reasons.
