Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 2:4-5

_ _ Woman — no term of disrespect in the language of that day (John 19:26).

_ _ what ... to do with thee — that is, “In my Father’s business I have to do with Him only.” It was a gentle rebuke for officious interference, entering a region from which all creatures were excluded (compare Acts 4:19, Acts 4:20).

_ _ mine hour, etc. — hinting that He would do something, but at His own time; and so she understood it (John 2:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 2:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 2:4

Jesus saith to her, Woman — So our Lord speaks also, John 19:26. It is probable this was the constant appellation which he used to her. He regarded his Father above all, not knowing even his mother after the flesh. What is it to me and thee? A mild reproof of her inordinate concern and untimely interposal. Mine hour is not yet come — The time of my working this miracle, or of my going away. May we not learn hence, if his mother was rebuked for attempting to direct him in the days of his flesh, how absurd it is to address her as if she had a right to command him, on the throne of his glory? Likewise how indecent it is for us to direct his supreme wisdom, as to the time or manner in which he shall appear for us in any of the exigencies of life!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 2:4

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine (b) hour is not yet come.

(b) My appointed time.
