Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 8:48-51.


John 8:50

_ _ I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh — that is, evidently, “that seeketh My glory”; requiring “all men to honor the Son even as they honor the Father”; judicially treating him “who honoreth not the Son as honoring not the Father that hath sent Him” (John 5:23; and compare Matthew 17:5); but giving to Him (John 6:37) such as will yet cast their crowns before His throne, in whom He “shall see of the travail of his soul, and be satisfied” (Isaiah 53:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 8:48-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 8:50

I seek not my own glory — That is, as I am the Messiah, I consult not my own glory. I need not. For my Father consulteth it, and will pass sentence on you accordingly.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 8:50

And I seek not mine own glory: there is one (q) that seeketh and judgeth.

(q) That is, that will avenge both your despising of me and of him.
