Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 7:59-60.


Acts 7:60

_ _ cried with a loud voice — with something of the gathered energy of his dying Lord (see on John 19:16-30).

_ _ Lord — that is, JESUS, beyond doubt, whom he had just before addressed as Lord.

_ _ lay not this sin to their charge — Comparing this with nearly the same prayer of his dying Lord, it will be seen how very richly this martyr of Jesus had drunk into his Master’s spirit, in its divinest form.

_ _ he fell asleepnever said of the death of Christ. (See on 1 Thessalonians 4:14). How bright the record of this first martyrdom for Christ, amidst all the darkness of its perpetrators; and how many have been cheered by it to like faithfulness even unto death!

(11) Faith and charity never forsake the true servants of God, even to the last breath.

(c) The word which he uses here refers to a type of imputing or laying to one's charge that remains firm and steady forever, never to be remitted.

(d) See (1 Thessalonians 4:13).
