John 7:49

_ _ But this people — literally, “multitude,” meaning the ignorant rabble. (Pity these important distinctions, so marked in the original of this Gospel, should not be also in our version.)

_ _ knoweth not the law — that is, by school learning, which only subverted it by human traditions.

_ _ are cursed — a cursed set (a kind of swearing at them, out of mingled rage and scorn).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 7:45-53.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

But this populace, who know not the law — This ignorant rabble; are accursed — Are by that ignorance exposed to the curse of being thus seduced.
