Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 14:15-17.


John 14:17

_ _ whom the world cannot receive, etc. — (See 1 Corinthians 2:14).

_ _ he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you — Though the proper fullness of both these was yet future, our Lord, by using both the present and the future, seems plainly to say that they already had the germ of this great blessing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 14:15-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 14:17

The Spirit of truth — Who has, reveals, testifies, and defends the truth as it is in Jesus. Whom the world — All who do not love or fear God, cannot receive, because it seeth him not — Having no spiritual senses, no internal eye to discern him; nor consequently knoweth him. He shall be in you — As a constant guest. Your bodies and souls shall be temples of the Holy Ghost dwelling in you.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 14:17

[Even] the (g) Spirit of truth; whom the (h) world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

(g) The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of truth by reason of that which he does, because he inspires the truth into us, because he has the truth in himself.

(h) Worldly men.
