Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 5:32-33.

Acts 5:33

_ _ cut to the heart and took — “were taking.”

_ _ counsel to slay them — How different this feeling and the effect of it from that “pricking of the heart” which drew from the first converts on the day of Pentecost the cry, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” (Acts 2:37). The words used in the two places are strikingly different.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 5:26-42.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 5:33

When they heard [that], they (l) were cut [to the heart], and took counsel to slay them.

(l) This shows that they were in a most vehement rage, and tremendously disquieted in mind, for it is a borrowed kind of speech taken from those who are harshly cut in pieces with a saw.
